This is related to this feature which is nice to have on the Careers profile, however it would be nice to have on any StackOverflow profile.
I'm thinking of a better way to promote the questions/answers you're most proud of, or that you think are really good. A lot of these questions get maybe 1-2 votes and an accept, and that's it.
(yes there is Twitter and Facebook, but what if my friends are not all programmers)
Currently questions/answers on the profile can be sorted by
votes | activity | newest. Maybe add a new category there -
showcase , where you can manually add 5-10 questions/answers you really like.
The reasons for this I think are pretty obvious. If you look at my SO profile, the top answer is a very silly one to a very "noisy" question. Because this sits at the top of my summary it gets additional votes from time to time, whereas good answers where I put a lot of work are never ever seen.
