*First, let me say that I have not been on Craftster for a whole year, so I don't know if something like this already happens. If so, kindly disregard.
Second, I THINK this is the appropriate place to put this suggestion. If not, would one of the mods be kind enough to move it to where it should be?*

I love the Featured Projects on Craftster. I look forward to seeing new projects up every month, and I think it's a great incentive to try and come up with well-made, original projects. I mean, I think most people would agree that it's a huge honor to have a project chosen out and put on display for the month. So I was thinking, wouldn't it be fun if in January of each year there was a contest in which all of the featured projects from the previous year are put up and voted on? Then for a month or so the top ten (or however many is appropriate) could be featured. It could be done in the slot where they usually do the Craft Challenges, or it could be done seperately and then the "winners" could just be featured in a blog or something. It should be something easy to arrange, and I adore it when sites (or magazines, or whatever) commemorate the year that has just passed.

Does anyone else think this would be fun, or am I just way into competitions? Smiley

This is an interesting idea! I'm gonna tinker around and see if I can come up with a way to compile the projects that got the most "This Rocks" votes for the whole year. Smiley

Love this! And imagine my surprise when I saw something of mine on the list!

But this is very handy for quick reference to projects.
