We've been thinking about creating weekly challenges for a while now, and @hannah_0 reminded me about it a few days ago by creating a nice forum topic asking how many people would be interested in having them. A lot of people immediately replied saying they would definitely participate, and that it's a great idea. And so I started a discussion with our moderators in our private Slack workspace to make it possible.
From now on, we will be having 2 types of OFFICIAL challenges:
1. Monthly challenges - Created by @Johny at the beginning of every month, without change.
2. Weekly challenges - Created by one of our mods at the beginning of every week.
Any one of our mods is allowed to create a weekly challenge. We have a reminder set up in Slack, which will fire on every Sunday, and the first mod that comments on it gets the opportunity to create the challenge. Most of our our moderators have already said they will really like to participate in that, which is great!
We've also updated the naming scheme for both our monthly and weekly challenges, so that it will be easier for all of you to distinguish them from each other, but also from other unofficial challenges that users create.
And just to make it clear, we will now be giving rewards also for participating in our weekly challenges 🎉!
The first weekly challenge will be posted to our forums on Monday, so prepare all your threads, find some free time, and join us!
Thank you all for reading, and have a great day! 😜
