What’s new on WikiAnswers… newsletter edition.

Yesterday the latest WikiAnswers newsletter went out, and I thought I’d recap the highlights for y’all in case you aren’t on the mailing list. If you’d like to be added to the mailing list, leave a comment and I’ll pass your name along to the powers-that-be.

On to the news… letter:

New chance to win prizes with Mission: Recategorization

Missed out on the AnswerThon? No sweat. Mission: Recategorization is the challenge to recategorize the most questions located in the Uncategorized category to their appropriate categories. The contest started last night at midnight, and lasts until 11:59pm (EDT) on Monday, August 11th.

There are prizes to be won! Find out more and get started.

AnswerThon Results

Thanks to everyone who participated in the first ever charity-edition WikiAnswers AnswerThon! Hundreds of contributors sponsored a charitable organization by answering questions from July 26-27. See the list of winners and participants on the AnswerThon results page.

Introducing the Community Development Team

We’ve created a Community Development team of Wikiholics to support the rapidly-growing WikiAnswers community. There’s nothing like keeping that addiction to WikiAnswers alive!

To briefly introduce the team: Deb, Brave3, Robin, Zanbabe, and Eliesheva. Feel free to stop by their Message boards and offer your suggestions and feedback.


Dispute Resolution on WikiAnswers

The Community Advisor Team is a new initiative to have a Dispute Resolution program for the community. Our aim is to make you feel comfortable settling disputes with your fellow contributors. To ensure impartiality, the team remains anonymous. Review Community Guidelines & Dispute Resolution in the Help Center.


New feature: Share your Q&A

Now you can share any Q&A page however you prefer! Use the Share button below answered questions to add the Q&A page to your favorites or post it on social networking/bookmarking sites (like MySpace, Facebook, Delicious, Twitter and Digg). Learn more about the Share button.


Name the Youth/Teen Group Contest

WikiAnswers recognizes youth contributors as valuable members of the Q&A community and so we are announcing the WikiAnswers Teen/Youth Initiative.

Here’s where the contest (with prizes) comes in: This program needs a name! Submit your name suggestion by Wednesday, August 6, and win! Get contest details.
