The photo stack exchange site has a weekly submission (by community members) for a photo of the week. I believe we could do a similar process, where community members submit a data visualization image to the site, the community votes on it, and the winning submission is posted on the newly created blog.
It doesn't have to be weekly, nor does it have to conform to any of the conventions that the photo site has made for their photo of the week (although many offhand seem reasonable to apply here, and I think would be a reasonable comparison to see how it would work here on this site). I'm simply asking to see if the community is interested in partaking in such a project, and if so instigate some discussion about how we should go about it.
To further add to what I envision, I don't really expect anything different than what people have already posted for many answers on the site (hence why I did not think it would be much more effort, and would give the authors work more exposure).
Here is a list of examples of visualizations that have been produced that I think would be wonderful additions to the blog;
- Quickly evaluate (visually) correlations between ordered categorical data in R?
- Follow up: In a mixed within-between ANOVA plot estimated SEs or actual SEs?
- Complex regression plot in R
- R - interaction plot with confidence intervals?
- Visualizing Likert Item Response Data
- Visualizing a million, PCA edition
- Recommendations for visualization type when data has an extremely wide variance
- Is it possible to create “parallel sets” plot using R?
I would just expect a short description, what it is supposed to convey (along with its potential usefulness or benifits over different approaches), plus some code to reproduce if possible.
