Now that we have a Community Bulletin, we use it to highlight questions (more precisely scripts/apps/libraries) which deserve to be highlighted. All we ♦ moderators need to do is slap a featured tag on the question and it will get some extra attention.
Our idea was to have a Script/App/Library of the Month, not unlike Arqade has a Screenshot of the Week and Photography had a Photo of the Week. Since Stack Apps does not see a lot of traffic, we thought a month would be more appropriate.
Of course, we are not in the best position to determine which questions deserve this honour, but we've provided an example. This is definitely something we should do together as a community, and therefore we invite you to
- Submit scripts, apps and libraries you feel worthy of being featured as answers to this question, preferably with a short motivation. Use the following format:
[tag:script/app/library] ## [Name of script, app, or library](URL to Stack Apps post) Motivation for choosing this script, app, or library
- Vote on other answers to this question to determine if a script/app/library gets featured and in which order.
Each month, we will feature the question with the highest voted answer that hasn't been featured yet. An answer needs to have positive score to qualify so that we know somebody else than the post author finds it useful (enough to be featured).
When we apply or remove the featured tag, we will save the question to the Wayback Machine to preserve the view count for analysis. Here are the results after a year:
Not really spectacular, if you ask me, but even 30 views is a nice boost for posts which otherwise would get only half a dozen views (in a month). There's no shortage of room in the Featured sidebar widget, so as long as interesting posts keep coming, we can feature them. Eventually, we could decide to re-feature contenders which have already been featured ... let us know what you think in the comments.
