It's time for another Community Building Challenge!

Our winner this time is . The idea behind this challenge is to expand the type of questions this tag covers. As it currently stands, the majority of the questions regarding these users are about how to encourage them to conform to community policies. We can expand this to include questions about how to engage these users, encourage them to stick around and contribute and not bashing them over the head with walls of rules. Of course, can use questions regarding any topic that you see fit. New members are important for community growth and often a source of many questions for community members and administration.

If you have a question that is part of this challenge, please tag the question with . At the time of this posting, there are 11 questions in this tag. Let's build our library of questions about new users and various aspects of community building regarding this particular subset of users.

Once again, this will be a two week challenge. Our non-digital communities challenge did well with this time frame. I think we'll stick with it for this challenge too. I will tally up the results on December 15th to see how we did. We are looking for high quality questions (and answers). This will take us to the start of Winter Bash 2014.

If you have ideas for more challenge topics, post them here.

Let the challenge begin!
