I noticed that some of my questions and answers from 2016 failed to appear in the query results for Best of Code Review 2016. For example, this query returned only one of my questions, while I asked four questions in 2016. I also saw that an answer was missing in the query for Best Newcomer (answer) category.

At first I thought that it was because these posts were made in December, but then I saw that other December posts were included in the results.

It is not that I expect to win anything here, but I don't understand why these posts are not showing in the query results. Maybe others also have posts that are not appearing in the queries. This seems a little unfair, since the nomination page states that this query "will show all potential candidates."

Looks like those queries are set up to only display the first post from each user who hadn't posted before 2016, rather than all posts in 2016 of each user who hadn't posted before 2016.

Best Newcomer Question

That should be a fixed version.

I have also updated the linked query in that Meta question and the 'Best of ... Answer' question as well.

Thanks for pointing this out! :)

    \$\begingroup\$ @DavidBowling No problem. It was just a misunderstanding from the person who wrote the original (awesome) queries. :) \$\endgroup\$ Commented Jan 5, 2017 at 1:44
