Have you seen (or written) a post on Mi Yodeya that you thought was really silly for missing a really obvious problem? Let's have a contest to help you tell everyone about it!

This contest has one phase: Nomination and Voting. It is currently in the Nomination and Voting phase.

  1. Nomination and Voting - ending March 22, 2019

    Post an answer to this Meta post containing a link to the Mi Yodeya post you want to nominate. Posts that are already posted are eligible (no, not including Purim Torah answers). Posts nominated last year are ineligible; we’ve critiqued those enough already.

    Please link to one post in each entry. Nominate as many posts as you like in separate answers to this post.

    When you see a big problem, don't wait; post a link to it here before you forget!

    Please do vote on any answers to this post during the Nomination and Voting phase.

300-point Bounty button][2]

The author of the highest voted answer to this meta post will receive a bounty of approximately 300 points after completion of the event on March 22, 2019, if I get around to it. In case of a tie, I will just keep the points to myself.

Concept and words stolen from Meta.MY.

This question is Purim Torah and is not intended to be taken completely seriously. See the Purim Torah policy.

Moreover, answers must critique in the spirit of Purim Torah. Critiques which are not offered in jest (or which are but end up as mean) will be deleted as nonanswers!

  • <seriously>This answer was posted for fun but can't actually win the prize, since it doesn't meet the criteria of nominating a non-PTIJ-answer post on MY.</seriously>

I want to nominate this post. It’s a blatant rip-off of a previous competition, and unlike then, there’s no guarantee of an actual reward (“if I get around to it,” puh-leeze). It’s clearly a bad idea, because the only submission thus far isn’t even a real submission.

Further, the OP only excluded Purim Torah answers, leaving Purim Torah questions available, and the wording of “already posted” is sufficiently ambiguous as to allow critiques at this post itself. What a loser!

    Am I nogei'a badavar by posting this? I can't win because I'm nogei'a, and msh can't win, because it doesn't satisfy the rules of the competition. I guess nobody gets the points; am I obligated to burn them?

    @JoelK Maybe I should set it aside until Eliyahu comes. How do I do that with reputation points?
