The best of Metafilter compilation*

Back in 2009 someone posted this question asking members for the posts they'd include in a Best Of Metafilter book with all the best advice from the hive mind.

But that was 7 years ago. So I'd like to ask the question again, 7 years later: Can you give me the link to the best things you've ever read here, something that actually changed your view of the world or made you a better person? [more inside]

Check for Ticks: Direct linking to best answers

When an AskMe question has a comment marked as a best answer, a little tick/check appears next to the post on the front page. What do people think about making that tick a link to the first best answer comment?

What is AskMe best at?

Which topics is AskMetafilter best at answering? I'm not referring to specific questions for which you've received the most helpful response; rather I'm wondering if people find that (for example) computer hardware questions receive more accurate and helpful answers than medical questions, or that AskMe is particularly bad at answering another type of question.

Best Answer AWOL?

This AskMe post shows on the front page as having a Best Answer, but on the inside page nothing is so marked. Did a Best Answer get deleted?

Best no more.

Now that we have this new interface for viewing our comments, I can no longer easily scroll through my ask.metafilter answers and see if any new ones have been marked as best. The word "best" appears, in small gray text, but the cool check mark that made me feel special is gone. :(

When is the best time to ask?

Do we have any data about what the best time of day is to ask an AskMe? Maybe even sliced and diced by tag or geography of respondant? Like, say I had a question about American law, when would be the best time of day (perhaps through some proxy measure like more responses is better, but maybe it could be smarter and be based on favorites or checked answers) to post it? Posts made around 1am Central might not be ideal cause they may slide off the page by mid morning, right? And they may be less interesting to Euros or Asians who are reading. (Sorry, but I don't know how to do a more inside)

These are a few of my favorited things...

Just curious about something... when someone answers an AskMe question and it gets marked as one of the best answers, shouldn't that also count for them as being favorited by someone? Or... no?

Highlighting best answers in profile

Would there be a way to either determine the percentage of a user's responses to AskMe are marked as "Best Answer", and/or be able to list out only those response marked as "best answer" to be displayed as part of a user's profile?

I just can't decide!

Being able to mark a best answer in AskMe is very useful. However, what are you supposed to do when you just can't decide which one is best?

Askme tag/best answer collision

In AskMetafilter, if the tags box extends into a highlighted "best answer" box, the two collide instead of readjusting for each other. This includes a text wrap-around. I demand perfection down to the pixel.

Who needs a best answer?

Suggestion for user page:

change this:
and 16 questions and 215 answers to Ask MetaFilter
to this:
and 16 questions (3 missing a Best Answer) and 215 answers to Ask MetaFilter

Thx!

Limit on Best Answers?

Maybe there could be a limit on the number of "Best Answers" that a question gets?

Can everyone say "I'm the best"?

Policy Question: I am not trying to call anyone out at all, (really!), but is it considered OK to mark you own answer in AskMe as the "best" ?

Multiple best answers in askme: feature or bug?

I noticed an AskMe thread with two "Best Answers". Is the ability to mark more than one answer as "best" intentional, or is this a bug? I'm sure there are going to be cases of ties, so perhaps this isn't a bad idea.

Is using "best answer" on subjective questions appropriate?

The best answer feature used in this AskMeFi question seems a little disconcerting to me. For a question that's so subjective, is it really appropriate? I find it off putting.

Pony - best answer search

Another tiny new feature: you can search for just questions with good answers marked at Ask MetaFilter. Here's an example of a search result with this in action.
