הנער הזה's answer to Where in Tanach is Shavuot associated with Matan Torah? addresses a simple question of general interest by bringing a myriad of sources to bear, organized nicely into three general approaches. Each source and idea is written up clearly and cited/linked competently, leading to a document that engages the reader from beginning to end, exposes dozens of ideas, and provides hooks for branching off into more learning. This is an ideal form of Mi Yodeya answer.

I would like to nominate my answer to Did Rabbi Joseph Albo say the mitzvoth will be abolished? The question seemed to be a simple question of "Did X say Y?", but it languished for two months with no answer. My answer cited a dozen or so passages from the work of the author in question, across various volumes and chapters, to provide a nuanced answer to what had seemed like a pretty black-and-white question.

I'd like to nominate @user15464's answer to "Which mishnah in Shas has the most daf between it and the subsequent mishnah?"

Not an easy answer to find and put together (ie not Google-able) and definitely required serious time and effort in compiling the list.
