Yesterday I wrote up a post asking if people would like weekly - now fortnightly topic challenges. The answer from the community was a resounding yes.

In two weeks, I'll announce the stats for users who asked and answered questions using the tag. If you have questions, see the original post or ask in chat. Let's build some new worlds!

  • $\begingroup$ I think that a challenge tag to indicate which questions are part of the challenge are unnecessary, like @Tim already pointed out. space should be enough, I think. $\endgroup$
