Proposing a Simple Rule for Good-Bad 2NT
Not what was asked, but I like opener's G/B 2NT bid to be good in partner's suit / bad in your own / bad in another. This way a direct raise of responder's suit is competitive, and 2NT... new action that can't be bad implies a fit ...
Couch surfing

Couch surfing
I like t/o at the 1-level, to play at the 2-level. Simple to remember and isn't terrible in either.

Tablets with a table feel
In Australia we seem to have a lot of written bidding due to the same logic as this. Not the only reason, but it is mentioned when anyone brings the whole "rest of the world doesn't" into view.
GAWRYS Wins Spingold
And a shout out to team Helle who were leading Gawrys at the halfway stage in the RO64 (a feat only managed by Diamond in the whole event)
