Perhaps we should add a "best nodes of the year" section, so that the really good nodes have a chance of getting some of the attention they deserve.
Possibly. But I'd rather seem something like a "Hall Of Fame". Any node with a rep higher than say 200 would automatically be added to a special "Hall Of Fame YYYY" node and removed from the "Best nodes". One "Hall Of Fame YYYY" node would exist for each year, with maybe an index node to list all of the years. And such "Hall of Fame YYYY" node would not list by reputation, but by order of publication.
