Read our FAQ Below for answers to common questions related to the contest---


  • How do I earn points ?
    When a question or answer is voted up, the user who posted it will gain points. These points serve as a rough measure of the community trust in that person. Various moderation tasks are gradually assigned to the users based on those points.

    For example, if you ask an interesting question or useful answer, it will likely be voted up. On the other hand if the question is poorly-worded or the answer is misleading - it will likely be voted down. Each up vote on a question will generate 1 points, whereas each vote against will subtract 1 points. The following table lists points gained per activity:

    Posting a question: + 1 points
    Selecting an answer for your question: + 3 points
    Per up vote on your question: + 1 points
    Per down vote on your question: - 1 points
    Limit from up votes on each question: + 10 points
    Limit from down votes on each question: 3 points
    Posting an answer: + 4 points
    Having your answer selected as the best: + 30 points
    Per up vote on your answer: + 2 points
    Per down vote on your answer: - 2 points
    Limit from up votes on each answer: + 20 points
    Limit from down votes on each answer: 5 points
    Voting up a question: + 1 points
    Voting down a question: + 1 points
