What is it?
There's a single topic that people think about during the week and come up with good questions on. The topic is set each Wednesday or so.
What do I win?
An Internet with more good questions and answers on an interesting topic.
Who thought of this week's topic, anyway?
How do we decide on next week's topic?
I didn't know about this week's topic challenge! Why wasn't it advertised?
I used to advertise the weekly challenge in a message that appeared atop each page on the main site. I was recently advised by Stack Exchange people that this challenge is really not the sort of thing that that spot is for. So it won't being advertised there any longer.
But— but— then how do I know when a new challenge is posted?
- Check back on the meta site from time to time, especially on Wednesday or Thursday, to see if there's a new challenge post.
- If you use a blog reader or otherwise follow RSS feeds, you can add the feeds for
featuredto your reader and automatically get updates soon after they're posted. It might be a good idea to subscribe to
featuredanyway, to keep abreast of featured posts on the meta site.
