in reply to Best Replies Possible ?

Looks like I've got mostly negative feedback, so I'll try and make a few points

  • I'm not using "Best Whatever" to vote. I'm interested in using it to find the gems out there. I probably would never have seen erudil's camel code if it weren't for Best Nodes.
  • Over time, replies with high reps tend not to last on Best Nodes, because the top-level nodes garner more votes from being front-paged and/or visible one-click from the home page. Have a look at Best Nodes. There's plenty of reply-type nodes in the "Day" category, but very few make it to "Week", and "All Time".
  • I'm not suggesting "Best SOPW" or any other extension beyond "Best Replies". Just a Best Nodes with toplevel nodes weeded out.
  • I'm not even particularly interested in seeing the rep of the nodes. Just the top "Day", "Week" and "All Time" sorted by rep. I understand that "rep" isn't really the best indicator of quality, but it's all we have :)
