Small characters at the bottom: Only one nomination per post, nominated questions must have a creation date in 2014, downvotes don't count, and Santa reserves the right to award the top-voted nominee a special bounty as a token of appreciation on behalf of the Code Review community. Since this is a question category, the author of the nominated revision must also have an answer on the nominated question, to qualify for a prize - note that a revision can be nominated regardless of whether or not the revision's author has an answer on that question.

Regularity in the “Rusty Towel of Mutual understanding”

This question also went to the Hot Network Questions and into the weekly CR newsletter the week it was posted. I think this was a great title because it's not only eye-catching and intriguing, it actually - believe it or not - says exactly what the post is about, and what the OP's main concern is. We need more titles like this!

KISS my... unit of work

This question went to the Hot Network Questions and into the weekly CR newsletter the week it was posted. I think it was a great title because there's a touch of humor, and it still conveys what the post is about and what the OP's main concern is.

    It should be noted that this question started off as off-topic - it was edited by a bunch of CR regulars, got reopened, and ended up as a hot network question. The title certainly played a major part in that question's success. Well done @pimgd! – Mathieu Guindon Jan 1 '15 at 2:18

    I have to say, this one undoubtedly wins the "most creative fizzbuzz implementation" category! – Mathieu Guindon Jan 2 '15 at 5:41
