As we've now got our unanswered down to <40 questions, doing pretty well, how about we spend a month helping out Expats?

The winner will be the one with the most answers with upvotes on previously unanswered questions.

The catch: You can't answer a new question until a previous one has TWO upvotes. Then you can include it in your list below, and answer a new one.

Thoughts? It'll give some of us more exposure to expats, and help them with their beta.

    @JoErNanO feel free to create an entry for yourself below. – Mark Mayo Sep 25 '15 at 3:47
  • You can't answer a new question until a previous one has uproots. <= uproots? You mean you need to wait for an upvote? – chx Sep 28 '15 at 21:52

    @chx - uproots = upvotes, stupid autocorrect :/ – Mark Mayo Sep 28 '15 at 22:39
  • If you see on that I can answer, please ping. – Gayot Fow Sep 29 '15 at 1:38

    How do you calculate the Rank without manual counting? Is there a browser script? I got tired updating the Travel.SE rank :) – JonathanReez Sep 29 '15 at 13:55
  • @JonathanReez manual counting :( It's easier as we answer more questions, and we get closer to the top ;) – Mark Mayo Sep 29 '15 at 13:59
  • Also if anyone feels enthralled by the idea, going through the unanswered questions and looking for potential close-vote questions helps as well. – Mark Mayo Sep 29 '15 at 14:03
  • Do only answers on previously unanswered questions count? – drat Sep 30 '15 at 1:25
  • @drat good point, will update – Mark Mayo Sep 30 '15 at 1:41
  • What's the formula for the rank? I could create a sede query for it. – JoErNanO Sep 30 '15 at 5:08
  • @JoErNanO presumably just ordered by %answered. I don't think it's particularly fancy. – Mark Mayo Sep 30 '15 at 5:15

    @JonathanReez The list view kinda makes it easier to count the ranks. Don't know if I can make a SEDE query for this since it's kinda of a cross-site information. – JoErNanO Sep 30 '15 at 9:08
  • Any more recent stats updates on this? Or did the competition fizzle out? – Gagravarr Oct 28 '15 at 12:30
