Alright, since today is April 2nd, I'm past due for the monthly challenges. This month isn't going to be too much different. We're still looking for voting improvements, so voting is where the main part is going to be at.
The first part of the challenge is going to be based towards newer people here on Mechanics.SE. This challenge is the Civic-Duty Badge challenge. This challenge requires you to vote 300 times. Up. Down. Question. Answer. Doesn't matter. All you have to do is have voted 300 times to garner the badge. Earn the badge this month and receive 50 points.
The second part of the challenge is based towards those who have been here a little while, yet still aren't as active as they could be. This challenge is the Research Assistant Badge challenge. To complete this challenge, you need to edit 50 wiki tags. There are a lot of new tags out there which need content. Edit 50 of those tags by inserting good content and you'll earn the badge. This takes a little bit of time and effort to accomplish. The wiki excerpts do not count towards this badge, just the wiki's themselves. You can copy content from Wikipedia or any other source you find, but ensure you are giving attribution when doing so (links/references). The better the information, the better it is for the site. Earn this badge and garner 100 points.
The third challenge anyone can participate in (well, anyone can participate in any of these challenges, lol). This is the Electorate Badge challenge. Vote on 600 questions with 25% or more of total votes on questions and you'll earn this badge. Some of you will have a long way to go to earn this, others just a few votes. Either way, the main emphasis is voting on questions. It doesn't matter if the votes are up or down, it just requires you to vote on questions. You can vote up to 40 times per day. It won't take too long to wrap up this badge. Earn the badge this month and receive 200 points.
As with previous challenges, all points will be awarded from my stash of points. The points will be awarded after the month is over. You've got the entire month to earn any or all of the badges, so all you have to do is get busy! I hope you enjoy this month's challenges.
