I would love to see a best of 2018 thread but have no use for the contest idea. For that matter, I'd rather the whole list were less award driven and more aimed at helping the new folks (and ignoring the trolls). I do hope that we get a lot of lean and meaty posts in 2019 as a result of the contest but we really do not need wholesale cut and paste threads that use the theory everyone else does not know how to find Wikipedia. Another helpful post category would be to post educational questions rather than just 'Is it Real?' or 'Should I buy?' If one who really does not know and is curious about something, a simple question could bring out good answers on that point which would add up to something of real value to us all. I retain my long standing opinion that the definition of 'good' questions changed with the invention of search engines. When I was in school, we could not type in two words and find the answers to so many questions. Now, educators no longer need to answer who was the Roman emperor in 30 AD. Anyone who wants to know can find out with a click or two. Asking questions that Google has not covered yet is getting harder but it is all that keeps us ahead of being robots.
