To give people time to enter, this will start on August 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 the question you answer is marked as a duplicate on the same 'day', your answer is invalidated.

Each 'day' will last for 48 hours. So August 1st-2nd inclusive is a day, August 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 August 1st. If you intend to enter, put your name there now.

  • What about closed for a reason other than duplicate? – gparyani Jul 19 at 15:00
  • If we get our upvote after the end of the "day", does it still count? For example, if I post an answer on August 1 that gets its first upvote on August 3, does that count as an Aug 1 answer, an Aug 3 answer, or nothing at all? – Robert Columbia Jul 20 at 1:53
  • @RobertColumbia - it needs to have the upvote by the end of a 'day'. (they almost always do in comps as people review them). I mean your answer might suck, and it doesn't deserve an upvote, so that's the criteria we have for now :) – Mark Mayo Jul 21 at 1:02
  • @gparyani might think on that one. Might just have to be if it's closed at all. Thoughts? – Mark Mayo Jul 21 at 6:14
  • @MarkMayo Yeah, I agree with that. – gparyani Jul 21 at 12:37
  • If you answer on August 2, does the day run to the end of August 2 or August 3? – Willeke Jul 22 at 16:06

    @Willeke - August 2nd. You need to answer each 'day', and they go Aug1-Aug2, Aug3-Aug4 and so on. – Mark Mayo Jul 22 at 22:04

    @Willeke you mean shamelessly stealing answers in comments. :D – JoErNanO Aug 7 at 13:07

    I should have cleaned up better. (But it does clear the back log and if they did not want their comment to change into an answer they should not have posted it.) – Willeke Aug 7 at 19:02

    Mark, are you sure that's the right answer you linked? Looks like it already has an answer before you posted yours. – JoErNanO Aug 2 at 8:31
  • @Mark, before we post the result of the review the next day, can you explain this day and whether you still qualify? – Willeke Aug 4 at 17:16

    @MarkMayo double check to see if you have a qualifying answer for the first day. And you still have time to make up for this blooper. – JoErNanO Aug 4 at 22:17
  • sadly no, in fact looking into it, the Aug 1 answer was even done at 23:06 on the 31st (stupid being in NZ timezones). So I really blew it :/ – Mark Mayo Aug 4 at 22:44
