After talking with several people here on Mechanics.SE, we believe the January Challenge has gone very well. We want to follow it up with new challenges for the February/March time period so as to keep the momentum going.
The new challenge will actually be challenges. To play this month, you'll be able to finish out the January Electorate Badge challenge which you may have started in January, but didn't get finished. You'll actually have two months in which to complete the new challenges which we've come up with. Here are all three challenges, their newly assigned points values, and what time frame you'll have to complete them.
- Electorate = 200 points - running 1-29 February
- Research Assistant = 200 points - running 1 Feb - 31 Mar
- Sportsmanship = 100 points - running 1 Feb - 31 Mar
Earn any or all of these badges during the months listed and I'll spot you the points.
To earn the Research Assistant badge, you need to have edited 50 tag wikis. We're looking to see some good information thrown into them! Each edit will go through a review process (normal procedure) by three people (I believe) who can do the reviews. Until it passes the reviews, it is still out in the open. There are plenty of tags to have wikis added to them, so have fun with it!
To earn the Sportsmanship badge is a little bit more complicated. You have to upvote 100 answers to questions where you have answered. Your answer must also have a positive score. This requires you to post good answers and reward others for their good answers.
All three challenges can be tracked through your badges in your profiles. See how well you are doing and what you need to do to make it happen. If you have any questions about the challenges, please post a comment below, or make sure you hit me up at The Pitstop, the site's chat room. I can be found in there daily!
Again, I'll be putting up all of the bounty points for you. Make sure you have a worthy answer I can put the points towards! If you complete a challenge and you don't have what I consider a worthy answer, I'll hold the points until you do.
Now, get out there and make things happen!
