I had been working on the question on and off for the past eight months. I went to great lengths to answer this, even checking leads that had been largely dismissed. Apart from the obvious search attempts, here are some specific things I tried. Consulting with R.L. Stine The OP mentioned, I don't think it was R.L. Stine, but I cannot remember the author. ...

Yes, absolutely We have the most active blog on the entire SE network, at least as confirmed by a CM: JNat: You have the most active blog. We’ve had a number of consistently high-quality contributions. Naturally, most are from JackBNimble and other high-reputation users, but we’ve had some contributions from newer users such as Rincewind. I was even ...

Since the blogs are now "unofficial" blogs, I think we can relax a bit on what we limit ourselves to. So, my opinion is, if it's an article you think would be of interest to this community, it's fair game for the blog. In the case of a video game review, I think you'd have to be aware of who your target audience is. We're here because we like to watch/read/...

YES. I would love to see more of the great content which is produced on the SFF blog, and I have several brewing ideas and half-written posts for it myself. Please let's not allow this great resource, which allows our users to wonderfully express their creativity in a different way from writing great questions and answers, and which sets us apart from all ...

I have no objection to content based on a video game, but I would rather see content based on the story and the world, and not particularly the gameplay.

The description had me completely fooled. I thought it was kiddie-lit; it never occurred to me that it was a story published in a regular science fiction magazine. That saved me from ransacking my collection for it, which would not have done any good. I reposted the question in the Children's section of the BookSleuth Forum at Abebooks.com, but got no ...

I tried when I first joined the site, but to no avail. In order to atone for my dismal failure I've contented myself with helping Kyle Hale by editing in some quotes from the story itself (and a nice picture) and offering a chunky bounty.

Favourite Answer I really liked CreationEdge's answer to the very unpopular question: Why does Captain America's costume change in all the movies? The answer was clearly well-researched and answered both in-universe and out-of-universe Creation even received a nice and well-deserved Reversal badge for his efforts too. Honourable mention All of Aegon'...

We should stick with what works; keep the blog as close as possible to the current layout. If possible, clone the theme exactly.

Not my story, but some interesting statistics related to this post. Here's a graph of the votes on both question and answer over time: With nearly 6000 rep, Kyle Hale is easily the person on this site with the most rep earned from a single post. His answer has also earned more points in bounties than any other answer on the entire Stack Exchange network.

I'm biased, because it's my question, but I really like DCOPTimDowd's answer to my question of What went down at the July 1974 Comic Art Con?. He put quite a bit of effort into explaining the circumstances and the people involved. It's a bit of an odd duck as a question on the site, being about the fandom, but people seem to have received it well.

Questions I think Hannover Fist deserves a special mention for the inventiveness and charm of his question about management policy: Could I fake death to stop being Force-choked?

Answers This answer MUST get a mention: Story where the number 3 is the monster? This question used to be the highest-voted question on the Unanswered tab, by a factor of about 3, until Kyle Hale solved it with his first (and so far only) post on SFF. He's earned more rep from a single post than anyone else on SFF, by far, and this answer has earned more ...

Questions Has JKR addressed the issue of 'Love Potions' equating to date-rape drugs? Given the apparent inconsistencies in the books, I had often wondered what Rowling’s opinion was. In Tolkien's opinion, does Tom Bombadil (and the concept of pacifism) actually hold any power? This is that rare question that (a) requires a good deal of ...

I think we should mention the Big Edit Event held on March 11 and 12. After Stack Exchange announced mass HTTPS, it turned out that a metric tonne of images would die if we did not take action. Mithrandir then proposed a solution: Is it time to organize a major editing event? Which was agreed upon and later implemented: The Big Edit Event (is finished) ...

I just hope that we can get clean, reliable, safe fusion energy in the form of household devices. We've got one year left!

Two of my personal favourites: I really liked the answers and discussion on SQB’s question How did Dumbledore, or anyone, know Lily had sacrificed herself for Harry? It’s a well-posed question that invites discussion, which is nice because I think a lot of the recent Harry Potter questions have focused more on trivia than discussion. There are several ...

The reason I suggested it was because I re-read this answer by Jeff to Are all Stormtroopers as poor soldiers as the ones in the movies?, and thought (again) that this is my single favorite answer on the entire website. It's one of those answers that just shattered my preconceived notions about one of my favorite titles in a way that makes me enjoy the ...

I'm sure this doesn't really need to be said, but your answer to the Who are these DC superheroes for its sheer and ridiculous overachieving.
