https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/223497/lets-burn-down-the-close-queue is one of the more exciting things I've read lately -- and not just because of the animated Fred gif... I feel the same excitement I did in 1996 when I used a transparent gif to position a marquee tag so I could highlight the "Sign my Guestbook" link on Geocities.
So my question is, what will happen once the queue hits ZERO?
Do we return to the slog of reviewing close votes once it starts up again? Or take a moment of victory!
I feel like streamers should shoot out of my monitor... but since that is totally ridiculous, I recommend the following reasonable options should be considered for everyone who helped burn down the queue during the recent time period:
- Offer the reviewers a free Stack Overflow membership for a year
- The person who closes the final post should get a "Ultimate Burninator" gold badge
- Free unicorn rides at the Stack Overflow offices (in case of shortage, rhinos may be used as fat gray stand-ins)
- Hand-knitted reproductions of the reviews per day chart
Are there better options?
