Well, 2021's come to an end, and so that means: Best of 2021!
In this thread, we'll consolidate the categories for our Best Posts of 2021, and eventually we'll vote on which posts will win for each category. In this thread, we are looking for two things:
- Categories to classify exceptional posts from 2021 (e.g. Best Mathematical Insight or Rookie of the Year)
- Bounties offered to reward the winners in those categories
As answers below, please nominate categories. Each answer should contain a category for a challenge or answer to be rewarded. The top-voted categories will then receive separate nomination posts to find the actual winners. Like previous years, I'm not going to state a fixed number of categories that will make it, but it's probably going to be between 5 and 15. Last year was slightly complicated, but we've usually gone with between 5 and 15 in previous years.
Voting on categories should last around 2 weeks, but this is by no means a hard limit, and we'll be happy to extend it further if new category nominations are still incoming.
Last year, we offered bounties to the winners. If you want to offer a bounty, please edit your name and the amount in below, or leave a comment and I'll edit it in.
