I love this site, and you give great help in a hilarious way. But for all this talk demanding good queries, you only post the bad ones. It's all educational, sure, but for those of us sending a good query per instruction hoping then for info on how to make it spectacular, we're ignored in favor of posting the truly awful ones. It's unfair that the ones who do follow these "strict" instructions are the ones never featured.
Maybe you can post some middle-ground queries--ones that aren't a complete disaster, but ones that still need basic help. I know it'd be nice and not exactly ferociously shark-like, but it would make following these instructions more important. I'm tempted to write a terrible query just to get you to post it so I can then send a follow-up.
It's all a matter of perspective I guess. I really don't think I post only bad queries. But if you think so, ok.
But, asking for advice on how to make your query spectacular overlooks something: I can't do that. I can help you get out of your own way. I can show you the obvious mistakes of form and content. I can beat it into your head not to start queries with your address or mine, or to mention those seventeen other novels waiting in the wings.
Editing your query line by line to make it spectacular assumes we could agree on what is spectacular and assumes what makes your query spectacular would also make other queries spectacular. I don't think we'd agree on either of those.
QueryShark is designed to get you to effective. For spectacular, you gotta do it yourself. The most I can help you there is showing query letters that worked for me. There's a list on the blogroll titled "Queries That Got To YES" with ten of them as of today.
And please don't send a terrible query just hoping to get it posted. It won't help you get to spectacular either.
