Single-link posts, especially SLYTs and SLOEs
, are often looked down on for being trivial fluff, while lengthy posts with dozens or hundreds of links routinely rocket to the top of the Popular lists and garner scores of positive comments. As a result, sometimes even strong standalone links are padded out with "filler" that doesn't really need to be there, and which people rarely seem to read. But that can't (and shouldn't) always be the case.
I have a hard time making single-link posts myself, but I'd love to see some great examples of the form. Is there a way to comb the Infodump
for this, or does anyone have some great ones bookmarked? Single-link videos, games, stories, websites, whatever -- just as long as there's just one link that drew a lot of favorites, comments, praise, and fantastic flags.
