To give people time to enter, this will start on February 6th, UTC at midnight.

Rules: To stay in the competition, you must:

  • answer an unanswered question not asked by you AND receive an upvote.
  • to prevent the advantage some timezones may have, if there's no unanswered question you can answer, then you can answer a new question asked in the previous 24 hours (also can't be your own question, and your answer still needs upvotes)
  • once the upvote has occurred (and not earlier)), edit the latest answer on this page for the date in question, and someone else can review and confirm.
  • IF there are no unanswered questions at all (hah), then and only then can you answer a previously-answered question for your day.

Each 'day' will last for 48 hours. So Feb 6th-7th inclusive is a day, Feb 8th-9th is a day, and so on.

Miss a 'day' and you're out.

However, please - if we finally hit a day where you can't answer something with a proper answer, ie with a citation or evidence or something useful to the author, don't post a weak answer on a question.

To give it time to sink in and in case I've missed some edge case, we'll have a practice 'day' on Feb 2nd. I'll provide the sample answer template below.

  • I am in........ – Nean Der Thal Feb 1 '15 at 11:36
  • @MeNoTalk May I suggest editing your name into the answer below for Feb 2nd. We'll try and have only one answer for each date, with all the names and questions in it :) – Mark Mayo Feb 1 '15 at 11:37
  • @MarkMayo How do I enter? – QuyNguyen2013 Feb 3 '15 at 0:15
  • @QuyNguyen2013 did you read the above? Just follow the instructions there. If something isn't clear please let me know. Answer an unanswered question for the correct 'day' and edit your name into the appropriate answer below. We've done Feb 2nd as an example day, properly starts on the 6th. – Mark Mayo Feb 3 '15 at 6:10
  • @MarkMayo I gwt it now :) – QuyNguyen2013 Feb 3 '15 at 12:34

  • @MarkMayo so one answer can be here and in March's one? – Nean Der Thal Mar 1 '15 at 8:36
  • @MeNoTalk see rules in March one: "IF you are part of the February answerathon and it's still going, you CANNOT use the same answer to enter both competitions. You'll have to answer two." – Mark Mayo Mar 1 '15 at 8:42
