So, the time has come for us to start another Topic Challenge. There are a few changes this time around!
8/12, 0:00 $\rightarrow$ 23:59, 8/21 (times in UTC).
Challenge: Topic Tag
This challenge is for the self-learning tag. During the final judging (probably a day or two after the end of the specified time frame), each question entered will be given points (these won't be visible to anyone except for the judges). The question with the highest number of points is the winner. (Points and post score and not necessarily the same).
Entering the challenge
For a question to be entered, three conditions must be met:
- It must be posted within the specified time frame. (which means that posting it before or after doesn't get it entered).
- It has to be tagged with self-learning (I think this is fairly reasonable).
- You have to add an answer to this meta post.The answer is your entry ticket, and should follow the format outlined at the end of this post.
And a fourth option to make it visible from the question page: You can add a comment to your question:
*This question has been entered into [The Being Selfish challenge question contest](https://cseducators.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/275/topic-challenge-02-being-selfish).*
Edits made after the end of the specified time frame and the final judging may disqualify the question.
- 10 points per upvote on the question itself.
- 3 points per answer that is created, and 1 points per upvote on any answer. So, if an answer is created that gets 3 upvotes, it will be worth 6 points to a question’s overall score). Self-answers will not earn the question points, but may still gain upvote points in this category. (which means that interesting questions which attract answers rank higher than those who bring relatively few answers)
- Each judge may award up to 35 points based on how much of an exemplar the question is for the tag, and up to 5 additional points for any other considerations (such as great writing, etc).
Structure of submission answers (For when you add an answer to this post)
The format of answers to this post should be like this:
## Question link1
[tag:self-learning],... (here you write the tags your question has)
If you win
The winner will be announced when the judging period ends. The winner of the contest gets declared Ruler of the Tag and Generally All-Around Cool Person! If enough people enter the contest, SE may also add to this prize a Stack Exchange t-shirt! So get asking, and you might get some Stack Exchange Swag.
Good luck to everyone
