As a follow up to this post, I think we should have an informal chat event (or a series of chat events) to help clean up all the old, unanswered questions which we have.
Basically, we schedule a 30 min - 1 hour session, where the community comes together and discusses the unanswered questions in our chat room. Everyone goes through the list of questions (maybe attacking different sections of the list to avoid duplication)
What we can do is identify questions of each "type" in the room:
- Questions which have good answers, but the answers aren't upvoted: These can be quickly discussed and voted on. Someone can improve existing answers or leave a better answer if necessary.
- Questions which are easy, but just didn't get enough attention at the time: Since there will hopefully be many of us in chat, we can see if someone can write an answer to it. Such questions can usually be answered from memory, in my experience. The answerer has the added bonus of probably getting votes from all those present in the room :) 1
- Really hard questions/Questions in niche topics: These can be bountied. Such questions sometimes can be answered by researching them. I suggest you try it; it's a fun experience, plus you have a chance for a bounty!
(The above format is flexible, suggestions welcome!)
The session is meant to be informal, feel free to discuss a question or anything else in the room. If we can work together on an answer, that's great!
Let's try to schedule it so that the most people are able to come. I'm posting answers with proposed timings, feel free to add your own.
