A couple of ideas for this, because I also think this is a really good idea.
- We could have a sticky post that is wiki-style, and allows multiple contributors (who are moderators and/or trusted regular contributors) to the top post.
- Discourse technically has tags, too. I don’t have them enabled right now for simplicity, but it wouldn’t be too hard to create a “best of” tag.
I’m kinda leaning towards option 1 since that thread’s comments could be used for discussion & submitting new threads to best-of, which would be more transparent than simply adding a tag.
Another tool that might not be obvious is this button, which allows you to create PERSONAL bookmarks as you browse the site (for easier reference later).
Maybe for now, add those threads to your own bookmarks (I def have some of my own I’ve added) and we can round up peoples’ bookmarks later to start a best-of category? I have a report in the back end where I can see what posts have gotten bookmarks, hearts, etc.
