This question already has an answer here:
I've noticed that "What's the best..." questions are both popular and against the rules on Stack Exchange sites.
Is there room on Stack Overflow to enable this kind of subjective question? Maybe it could be a new Stack Exchange site, like "bestInClass.stackexchange.com" or different category of question, meant to be opinion based.
I see one similar question, but I'm open to any implementation of the "Best In Class" pattern. Maybe if you ask that category of question the reputation is calculated differently, or in a separate container. Maybe SO rep counts towards some weight on your opinion of what is the best in class.
I think there's a solvable and lucrative problem here:
- You have a user base with valuable knowledge (What's the best XYZ?)
- They are willing to share that knowledge
- It doesn't fit within the SO model
If #3 could be solved, "What's the Best X" could be a great addition.
