Since starting the Security Stack Exchange Blog on 15 July 2011 we have some excellent blog posts, and a large number of these are from our Question of the Week posts. Going forwards, it is probably simplest to post your favourite Questions of the week as answers on this question, and vote for your which ones you want to see. Once questions are accepted and posted we will delete them off here allowing the next most popular to rise to the top. So if you had a favourite question which didn't get selected in a previous week it may yet have it's turn in the spotlight.
There may be ones which are hot topics that week - and these may get posted despite not being at the top of the pile. Discussion in the DMZ will identify and select these.
Please post any question that you feel is of worth and the reason why as an answer below. Try not to promote your own questions or answers for publicity's sake. We are looking for questions that are of great interest, or have exceptional answers. If you like a posted question then vote it up. Each week we are going to try to post about the question and its contents. Also, have a look at the blog to check it hasn't already been written about.
When submitting a QotW, please indicate if you would be interested in writing about it for the blog. This is a factor which we take into consideration when selecting what to blog about - we need a post we can actually say something interesting about, it shouldn't be something we've written about too much before, and it helps to have somebody interested in writing the article.
I repeat - volunteer authors are always welcome - we get a wider range of styles, and it puts less of a load on the regulars
Note to the answerers, if you dig a question, you can always submit a draft blog post about it, even if its not picked as QotW. Contact a moderator, or come and chat in the DMZ if you need more information.
Posts can be written whenever you like - if we have a queue of good blog posts then that can tide us through holidays or times when folks are busy.
- Question and author selection: 1700 UTC Tuesday
