Since Could this site do topic challenges? seems to have some reasonable support, I have created a thread to contain ideas for topic challenges.
In answers, please include your idea for a topic challenge as well as why you think it would be a good challenge.
I propose that there be a topic challenge every month, as on Literature.SE. This will be decided by votes. Points to consider when voting:
- Is it reasonably easy to find out about? (Is the one relevant source a $70 textbook - in which case perhaps that's not a good challenge?)
- Is it something you yourself would be interested in answering, asking, and reading about? (A bit of a "well, duh" reason.)
- Is it something that's not as commonly asked about on this site?
- Is it something which has a reasonable scope? (Neither too broad nor too narrow.)
The first challenge can be for the month of September.
