This question arose from the following question on main:
It appears to be an interesting question that will definitely help learners to practise their reading skills in the German language. The question is well received by the community and already has some also well received answers.
Nevertheless answers and comments show that there is an issue with this question (or any other similar question). We do not really know what or to what extent "preeminent" or "reputable" was meant to be. It feels very much like a "what is the best..." opinion based question that generally would not survive for long on any StackExchange site.
Surprisingly the community did not cast any close votes or downvotes here. On the contrary: people upvote and show they liked this question. This makes me believe that sometimes even opinion based question asking for big list answers can be accepted if they meet certain prerequisites.
To guide the community for future similar questions I feel we need to clarify these prerequisites here. What was different with the above question?
