    Dear IL-ites,

    th_hny3.gif



    2012 is here! Sparkling, warm and heartfelt new year wishes for all our IL-ites. ​



    It’s time again for making New Year Resolution! Getting their question answered - quickly and completely - is the #1 expectation of our users. When a thread remains unanswered, it means that we haven't delivered on that expectation. In 2012, we want to rectify that. Our new year resolution is to reduce unanswered threads in our forum to zero. Hence, we are kick starting the new year with a grand…​






    Answering Marathon

    (Part 1)






    What is Answering Marathon?

    It is an initiative where the entire community makes a focused effort to reduce unanswered threads. Today, there are about 19,000+ unanswered threads. We want to get that to 15,000. We need your help in answering these unanswered threads with helpful and informative responses. Quality is more important than quantity. As we march to 15,000 unanswered threads, we will select active contributors who are making excellent responses to unanswered threads and award prizes.

    What are the prizes?

    Of course, you will win the hearts of millions of users across the site and the gratitude and blessings of the future readers. Only that?? Wait there! We don’t let you go out with empty handed. There are plenty of prizes...


    Rs. 1,000 Cash Prize

    + T-Shirts, Caps & Gift Cards


    18,000 Unanswered Threads - Indusladies T-Shirt
    17,000 Unanswered Threads - Indusladies Cap
    16,000 Unanswered Threads - Rs.250 Craftsia Gift Card
    15,000 Unanswered Threads - Rs.1000 Cash Prize

    How is the Winner Selected?

    Our panel of judges will pick one deserving post to award each of the prizes. Winners are selected based on quality of responses, not quantity. The winning post will be helpful, informative and friendly. To win the prize, focus on writing longer, insightful posts that adequately address the OP's question. Bring in as much unique information and personal experience when responding. The more quality responses you make, higher are your chances of getting picked.

    How do I participate?

    It’s simple and easy. All you have to do is answer as many unanswered threads as possible. Then update this thread every day with the number of threads you answered that day. Try to answer 5 a day. Do not wonder about how old the thread is! Answer it even if the OP of the thread is no longer around in the site. Your response would be helpful to the future readers and for the millions of forthcoming users !

    How do I find Unanswered threads?

    You can easily find unanswered threads in two ways.

    1) Quick Links -> Unanswered Threads

    .----- 1.JPG

    2) In each forum Forum Tools -> Unanswered Threads

    .----- 2.JPG

    Do’s and Dont’s:

    • Strictly a big NO for one-liners. Short responses that are incomplete won't be considered. Your response should be useful, informative and helpful to the original poster.
    • Posts made during this contest period will only be considered. Contest period is from 1st January 2012 to 14th February 2012.
    • Winners will be selected by our panel of Judges. Judges decision is final.
    • Prizes will be shipped to an address within India or US.
    Give resolution making a whole new meaning with your participation !

    The idea is really appreciated because most of the thread is left unanswered. This paves the way to dig into each and every thread and all the indus ladies members views and ideas are take into everybody's mind. IL' Admin has really started new thread which is very useful and as well some incentive waits. So, why ladies ur waiting, just dig into each and every thread and post your feedback, and get your incentives.:thumbsup
    Ideas such as these are really the need of the day.

    Regards,

    It's a good initiative, even if the OP is longer active, it'll definitely help the future readers on this site. I'm in too. And I wish you all good luck as well.
