Threads of 2022

I took a look at the “top” threads for 2022, and pulled out a few. I was inspired by the “most active thread over different periods of time” thread. What were some of your favorites this year?

Some 2022 Classics (my personal selection with no empirical basis). If it’s one of my threads, I only posted it because I loved the responses.

I can’t believe that the “Interactive Literature” thread was this year. Seems like ages ago.

Absolutely delighted to be included in this curation. It’s really fun looking back at some of the threads from (well, I suppose now!) last year.

I just realized all my favorite threads are Sophia threads. I’m glad you’re on the forum! :smiley:
