There is something nagging on my mind for some time now, which was again poked by this recent question:
On Puzzling SE we're more and more creating a great collection of good, topically sorted puzzles, mixed with (maybe more) mediocre or simply, hmm, not-great puzzles. The voting system together with the tagging (if properly done or edited) allows for nice searches, but I still thinking that something is missing.
If you're more or less a 'follower' on site, it's fun and good stuff is hardly missed, but if you're a 'Googled-in' or 'surfed-in' user, then it is by far not so easy to get a good overview of the 'gems' on site. Personally, I would love to see a sort of digest version of Puzzling SE done in a regular - but not too frequent - manner.
By this, I mean a commented summary of some of the more interesting posts, not repeating the questions, but rather linking them. I don't mean a simple link-collection, but something which is worthwhile reading on its own, which puts individual puzzles/posts into some context. Such a digest would pretty much fulfil the purpose of what was asked here, but it could also fulfil other purposes.
Now, I'm very much aware that Puzzling SE is not meant to be either forum, a repository of puzzles, or blog-spot, and I'm be no means suggesting to turn it into one. But I think right now we have the ingredients together for extremely valuable digest collections: good examples and experts in the field
So my actual question / point of public discussion is:
How could we best 'create' such a regular digest?
And where should it be hosted?
I could imagine a regular post on either main site or meta site would work, but I think it is far from ideal in many ways.
A blog with links to the according postings would certainly work, but is such a parallel-site something which is liked or hated by SE? Also, blogs tend to be very personal by nature, and I envision something more community based, i.e. a place where multiple site-users co-author the digest, or where different users take turns in creating a digest of their favourite flavour.
A Wiki page could potentially be better, as it offers extensive editing and hence can be used for both one-time digests and on-going updated digests/collections. Is the SE wiki a suitable place?
Also, during the restless period a month ago, it became apparent that quite a few of the site-regulars are very capable of setting up new sites in a very short time. Maybe something similar could be done here?
I'm curious what others here think about the idea - and if somebody is maybe already doing something similar to this?
Or do you think it's a useless idea and site-XY is already doing this anyway?
