Now begins our twelfth topic challenge!


Dates: 22 July - 5 August

Proposed by:

While worlds can be populated with all sorts of intriguing and fantastical creatures (or robots, or other life forms), I find questions about how a fixed life form we're all most familiar with would fare in other settings to be both interesting and well-grounded (not figuring out a world and its inhabitants at the same time).

Remember to use the tag if you're asking a question as part of the challenge.

In two weeks, we'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.

Propose new topics here: What should be the subjects of our fortnightly topic challenges?

    $\begingroup$ Most of the questions I have myself or have seen others ask so far have been either perilously close to improper for Worldbuilding or not really about humans, like this one. Could we better define how the humans tag should be applied to questions and specifically what is on topic for Worldbuilding in regard to it? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Yeah, could we have a good example question? It seems humans are pretty well "world built" already. $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 24, 2015 at 1:34
  • $\begingroup$ I'm really enjoying this topic. Even if the world is just normal humans in a slightly different world, the opportunities for exploration are endlessly fascinating. $\endgroup$
