After the positive popular response to two recent nodes, I would like to go on with a little "provocation".

Browsing around in the places where I thougth some good ones were (and with a little help from some friends), I came out with my very personal list of good nodes on their way towards the Best Nodes.

This list is most likely to be incomplete, but maybe somebody would like to contribute their own findings.

Author title rep
ferrency "Don't try this at home" (*) 246
footpad On Responsible Considerations(*) 245

As always, comments will be appreciated.

(*) update Feb 04, 2004 at 09:28 UTC
After my post, ferrency's node replaced footpad's in Best Nodes. Their rep was respectively 241 and 244.
Almost all nodes in this list were upvoted (46 votes in less than 11 hours). Just to confirm that, in addition to their merit, it's this kind of "exposure" that creates the hall of fame list.

Update Feb 24,2004 something has happened!

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    This is a really good idea. I have overlooked most of these nodes. As a matter of fact, I just considered "My coding guidelines" for promotion as a tutorial. There are probably others that should be easier to find.

    I'm not sure whether to be grateful or upset. My perfectly good evening plans are shot as I am compelled to consume some of the, previously unknown to me, great info available at PM :)

      Instead of asking the gods to change things, I think it would be a great idea if you put this list on your home node. Maybe others would follow your example and soon we would have a large "personal" collection to browse through.
