Kicking off the activity by introducing an idea brought up by JohnC.
Clean up a thon!!!
Cleaning's an art. My mop is my paintbrush.
Our answer rate has dropped to 87% which may seem great but it's pretty low in the league of SE sites. So to counter this we will try to set up a contest similar to Unix: A contest to cleanup old, abandoned questions.
So the following set are actions we can do for the contest:
- Answer an old question well enough to receive the Revival or Necromancer badge (Drop the question in Google-Fu and hopefully some of us can help by either voting or explaining what's missing from the answer to make it great)
- Vote to close a question (or flag close vote) that was asked before 2012.
(Any more ideas?)
The breakdown from Unix seems reasonable:
We'll break it down as follows:
The prizes should relate in some way to Web Applications (e.g. a subscription to a Web App).
Since the SE Clothing Store is closed maybe we can start looking at getting Web App specific clothing/swag?
What do you think?
(I'll be in Google Fu if you want to throw around ideas, but try not to take too long, I would like to send something concrete to SE Staff by next week Friday 12th October.)
