To give people time to enter, this will start on March 1st, UTC at midnight.

Rules: To stay in the competition, you must:

  • answer an unanswered question not asked by you AND receive an upvote for your answer.
  • 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'.
  • 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.

Each 'day' will last for 48 hours. So March 1st-2nd inclusive is a day, March 3rd-4th 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.

I'll provide the sample answer template below for March 1st. If you intend to enter, put your name there now.

  • Hrm, isn't travel SE too small for this? There are only 15 questions a day per stackexchange.com/sites and from the past, only 93 unanswered (wow). – chx Mar 2 '15 at 4:35
  • @chx - well the February one worked fine (still going). IF we end up with zero unanswered questions, as described above - then we can answer a previously answered question. But that seems unlikely - it's more likely that people will drop out for time, or inability to answer the few 'tough ones' remaining. And if it helps reduce the unanswered ones, all the better. – Mark Mayo Supports Monica Mar 2 '15 at 4:48
  • It's an experiment for fun anyway. If it succeeds like the Feb one seems to have, great (although that started with like 140 unanswered), and if it fails now as it gets too hard, well, it means we've answered some good questions, hopefully. – Mark Mayo Supports Monica Mar 2 '15 at 4:49
  • Must the answer be posted and upvoted within the two-day time window for it to count? Or can I maybe answer today, get an upvote in a week and count my answer for whatever that competition day might be? – JoErNanO Mar 3 '15 at 8:00
  • @JoErNanO upvote has to be in window too, otherwise you can't write the entry below (as per rules), and the day would close without you entering. Generally really good answers get upvotes pretty fast any day of the week. – Mark Mayo Supports Monica Mar 12 '15 at 3:44
  • If the intent was to burn the unanswered page to the ground, it's at 55... that's crazy. – chx Apr 8 '15 at 2:23
  • @chx we're getting there :) It's certainly effective. – Mark Mayo Supports Monica Apr 8 '15 at 3:07

    @MarkMayo we are well on the way to be the second StackExchange site with more than 10k questions and 100% answer rate stackexchange.com/sites#percentanswered Currently only roleplaying is such. – chx Apr 8 '15 at 3:37
  • @chx assuming it rounds, when we get below 50 we should hit there....is what I've been tracking for. (crosses fingers) – Mark Mayo Supports Monica Apr 8 '15 at 3:56
  • Actually we are at 11k questions so it should hit 100% real soon. – chx Apr 8 '15 at 5:23
  • @chx, yeah we're at more than 99.5% or something, should round like now :/ RPG has 37 left, so you definitely don't need every question answered to get 100. – Mark Mayo Supports Monica Apr 8 '15 at 5:44
