PM Hall Of Fameby dbwiz (Curate)

Since nobody has written a follow up on that case, I'll try to build a case for it.
Following that input, several monks proposed something slightly different, but the general feeling is that the Monastery would like to have more of those nodes available.
This is not really about reputation or pride.
Ordinary monks like myself would like to have the nodes above average to be preserved in a place where they can be easily found. I know that node reputation doesn't have an absolute value, but it would be a good indication that one node was positively accepted by many people.
Currently, the Monastery is preserving two types of exceptional nodes: Tutorials and Best Nodes. Tutorials are selected through the consideration system. Best Nodes are kept in a permanent exposition, thus allowing them to gather extended reputation day after day. As a result, those nodes that are "best" today have a good chance of staying "best" forever.
I like tilly's proposal about having a Hall of Fame for the best node of each year, month, and week. This device would be valuable for those people who can't browse PM on a daily basis, and would like an alternative view to find the good stuff. But also the regulars would benefit from it, because the good nodes would be grouped in a specific place.
To avoid concern about disclosure of the node reputation before voting on them, I also propose that nodes in the Hall of Fame shloud be shown without the current rep. The purpose is to make those nodes available, not to encourage competition.
I hope I have stirred the interest of the powerful ones.
