Stacy, some people have done it that way in the past. However, we don't put a limit on how many links people can recognize in the year-end Favorites thread.
Diane, I knew this was coming, so I've been keeping track of which ones I wanted to include. Still, it's so difficult to trim down the list to a manageable number. The ability to organize Favorites is one of the most requested forum improvements. It will be wonderful when that feature is finally available, since we could then keep best-of-the-year folders for our picks.
Just an FYI... The regular Favorites Best of 2012 thread will be posted tonight at about 8:00 Eastern time. We'll be doing ours instead of the normal Favorites thread this week, since last year it was too many notifications to have both the weekly thread and the year-end thread during the same week.
For anyone new who might not know what we're referring to, here's a link to last year's thread: FAVORITES: The Best of 2011
