I usually read textbooks about LaTeX and derivatives and I am always fascinated at how the experts manage to develop their code and get their desired output. In this website there are many topics floating around and with many of you gurus helping, it facilitates our learning. I was then wondering, why isn't there a show off per tag of the best of best LaTeX programmers. I know something like this has been done but not to the extent as per tag.

For example, there are tags like , , , etc. Why cannot there be a show off of the many capabilities of TikZ, about constructs of professional tables or different designed tables that one can come up with. If there is a prize let there be one and if it is just to show off your talents let it be. I mean there was post recently about a candle.

From my point of view that is a fabulous outcome. So what say you.

  • A tag wiki page can be used to collect a list of important questions and answers.

  • If you look for great questions regarding a topic, just filter by the tag and sort by votes. I wish, we could select a tag and see a list of answers sorted by votes. This is at least possible with the Data Explorer.

  • Regarding answers, you could use the badges to look-up great and famous answers, such as

    Also here, I see it would be great if there would be a sort feature, it's just chronologically sorted, which is not the way I expect content to be sorted here.

Meta tags such as are not desired, furthermore we can only tag questions, not answers.

    Perhaps add a reference to the first birthday "skillz" contents: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/34482/…

  • The reference above is what I cited as a topic I had read about showing off your skills. I am amazed at the work you do here, Stefan and I am contemplating on purchasing your book. But I imagine your work is not even half of what you know. I would be very interested in seeing what levels of complexity and capabilities latex can take you to and how topics like tikz, pstricks, tables, formatting and stuff like that can be tackled by experts(you guys here) and their magnificent output.
