With the new blog post by Jeff Atwood, he reveals a nice little feature of the greatest hits from every site on SE. In this, he suggests that every site should monitor, clean and flag the greatest hits questions so we can keep up relevancy and quality.

I know we've discussed what should and shouldn't be asked on the site, but exactly what questions do we want representing our site to everyone else?

  • I thought that the greatest hits were based off of an algorithm. – user6901 Feb 25 '12 at 16:33

    They are based off of an algorithm (it's detailed in a box on the right sidebar) however, a number of other sites are working to clean up their greatest-hits pages. It might be something for this site to consider? :D – Aarthi Feb 26 '12 at 2:45
  • There's ways for us to take out what is on the greatest-hits page, therefore allowing us to choose what we would like representing our site. In any case, we should all take a careful look at what is already up there and edit them to provide the best look of Pro Webmasters. – Christopher Feb 26 '12 at 7:48

Based off of what other sites are doing, what people should do is edit questions if they can improve, and flag them if they aren't good questions.

  • The question highlighter script appears to work on this page. I'm working through the first page now and will set reminders to keep working through it - your suggested edits will continue to receive prompt moderator attention :) – danlefree Feb 27 '12 at 10:51
  • @danlefree I'm working towards 2000 rep: I should get the edit privilege soon – user6901 Feb 28 '12 at 2:53
