Why Do Ask Users Love to Answer?

By spolonsky // November 17th, 2011

Millions of people come to every day for all sorts of questions. Some are answered with a quick answer right at the top of the page, while others are more subjective in nature and need a more human touch. As mentioned in the post below, we have users that are so dedicated to answering all kinds of questions that they reach our Ask Hall of Fame list!

But why do so many users take the time to answer other people’s questions? A great article in Xconomy asked that very  question and decided to ask the users themselves.

And,  guess what? Ask users responded with a ton of terrific answers! Check out the article to see what users said was the reason why they provide great answers.

Full Story // Leave comment Celebrates Users – Ask Hall of Fame

The Ask Hall of Fame is a celebration of dedicated members who contribute great content to the Ask community. Every month, we select 100 community users who provide great answers, contribute often, and are just good community members. It doesn’t matter if users are brand new or if they’ve been here since the inception of community…time doesn’t play a part in the Hall of Fame; greatness does. Furthermore, users can keep their name in the Hall of Fame month-over-month by continually contributing great content.

As a special thank you, we created t-shirts exclusively for Ask Hall of Famers. If being featured in the Hall of Fame wasn’t enough, then perhaps donning a special t-shirt will entice users to do their very best.

Check out the September and October Hall of Fame to see who’s in already.
