Best of Unstuck

With as many active threads and posts as we have here some are bound to get lost in the shuffle, and one today was so good that @eyebooger suggested compiling the best posts into a thread, so I started this account to do just that.

To tag a post you think is deserving of being highlighted, just reply to it with “@BestOf”.


You can also quote the post as a reply to the thread if you don’t want to blow up people’s notifications.

Depending on how many posts end up getting tagged, this will either be a weekly or monthly thing where I’ll collect all the best posts and post them in this thread. To start things off I’m going to wait until October 31 to make the first compilation post, so feel free to go back and tag any that you think may have been overlooked by the community. Any forum can have a great post so don’t feel limited to just Politics.

I am clearly a moron, but I can’t find a link to the actual post that prompted this.

I think it was this one

It has 21 likes. Who wants to write a plugin that automatically replies to any post with > 10 likes with “@BestOf”?

You’re not a moron, I am because I was saving it for the first big update but you’re right, it should be in here, so here it is:

I’m not the biggest fan of that for two reasons:

  • Some stuff that gets 10+ likes are jokes, which imo do not belong in the same category as the boredsocial post that prompted this thread
  • There might be an outstanding post in a low traffic thread that would go under the radar.

The existence of such a plugin does not preclude anyone else from nominating that post for the BestOf thread.

Keed’s gut has got to make this thread.

Lol this proves my conjecture that Nobody Actually Reads The Posts. This is BoredSocial’s flashpoint and he’s made this same venting soapbox scream from the rooftops post at least a baker’s dozen times. So, great, finally people read it, it IS good.

Why can’t jokes be posted here?

What about outstanding jokes, boogie. When will this radical prejudice against the eighth estate stop?

Quick week 1 check in

I think it’s fine if jokes are included in this, but

This was kind of the point of the thread: highlighting posts that are very good but are made in threads that not everyone is active in.

With that said, so far I’ve received a total of…
