How does it help others find it later? I'm not familiar with this feature.

    Best nodes of ...

      Best Nodes is not very useful for shaking out the relative merit of nodes.

      When you said "later", I was thinking more than one week from the time of posting.

        I know you know that best nodes is also sliced on a month and a year.

        There's been some discussion in the CB lately about doing things like letting monks over a certain level keep their links unaltered otherwise they might garner a ref="nofollow". I think this would also be a good idea to apply to nodes based on rep (and corresponding meta tags in single-node views). Even if it weren't being used at all, meaningful data is worth collecting. It's true anonymous monk posts don't often land on the best of page. I think they would more often if there were less reticence to "waste" votes on them.
