Favorite Conventions
I named a cat after Namyats, but it's not actually my favorite convention.

Ian Rowlands's bidding problem: A3 AKQT96 T5 AKQ
Hopefully partner has more than an ace and a jack for the 3 bid
Ian Rowlands's bidding problem: A3 AKQT96 T5 AKQ
4, now if partner bids 4 7N, else 6.
Alexander Allen's bidding problem: --- x Kxx QJT98xxxx
3 was a weak effort but maybe the player was afraid 4 would be a splinter and 5 exclusion? These problems should generally be presented without the UI.
ATB
True, 3N is somewhat pessimistic. Maybe 4 instead? 4N makes me nervous (it might not make, and partner might not think it's natural).
ATB
A reasonable and simple auction would be something like 1 - 1 2 - 3 3N - 4 4H - 5 6 I don't like 3, it should show 6-5 or at least very concentrated red suit values. On this hand 3 is just ...
ATB
If you believe that North can never have more than 4 spades, then fine, AKQx xx Qxxxx xx. This looks like a picture bid, whereas your examples look like fast arrival (which is also consistent with your phrasing of "nothing else to tell").
ATB
Not clear that these proposed hands are consistent with North's 3 bid. A picture bid of AKxxx xx Qxxx xx doesn't look too bad for slam.
Paul D East's bidding problem: AKQJT76 A4 AQJT ---
The option for imp pairs is "Cross Imps".
Competitive bidding with flat hands
My plan would be to create two bidding polls.
The Worst Convention Ever
Bailey Cue Bids (all cue bid overcalls are highest ranking suit + another). The ambiguity of major suit Michaels is a bug, not a feature.
