Most of you are aware of the Fedora Magazine. We've been thinking of having regular posts that will contain a few interesting questions that have been asked and answered well on Ask Fedora. There are a couple of ways of doing this:

  1. Most voted questions in a week or fortnight.
  2. Most voted answers in a week or fortnight.
  3. Especially interesting questions that high ranking contributors pick out for the magazine.

What would you prefer? Do you have any more ideas on how we could regularly pick questions to post to the magazine?

PS: After posting a question, I suggest we tag them with "fedora-magazine" so we can easily list all questions passed on to the magazine.

Whatever the criteria, I strongly advocate limiting featured questions to software and solutions provided in Fedora.

Another idea, though instances are probably rare: Questions that led to a bug report that was fixed with the assistance of the troubleshooting performed on Ask Fedora.

I like the idea of most voted questions. Many questions on Ask Fedora are duplicates, or don't contain sufficient information, and showcasing well presented questions on Fedora Magazine in addition to rewarding them with karma would provide a valuable example to others.

A good question can demonstrate an interesting and unique problem. If the question has a good answer, it shows the value of the community participating in Ask Fedora. If it does not have a good answer, the question gets better exposure for a difficult or confusing issue and readers have a clear call to action.

If regular contributors want to call out an interesting question for Fedora Magazine, let them vote!

I would go for the option 3 :: Especially interesting questions that high ranking contributors pick out for the magazine. Not everyone reads all the questions and answers on ask.. so it would be nice to highlight the most interesting question in the magazine where it will reach to the wider audience. Great Idea Ankur :) .. Thanks..

I'd suggest both number 1 and 3. Number 2 shows a good answer, but the question might be so trivial.
