Windows 8 Challenge

Super User had a challenge with prizes to support the release of Windows 8.

There were two separate challenges: Levels and Tiles. You complete those by asking and answering questions.

It was here that I was spending all my free time during the last two weeks. Here’s what I managed to achieve:

Level 1
100%


Level 2
100%


Level 3
79%


Level 4
38%

Unfortunately, I found the challenge quite late. If I had known about it from the start, I could have fight for the main prize, Surface RT tablet, and I would have reached the Level 3. Anyway I just wanted to get the t-shirt 🙂

Well, why would one give up on other levels? So I continued answering questions. And Level 3 was really close…

By the time I joined the challenge, many questions had been asked and answered. And I didn’t have access to Windows 8 from some time and therefore I couldn’t answer some questions because I had no way to check. Nevertheless I tried to do my best.

On November 2 I earned 180 reputation points. If I had earned 20 points more, I would have received Mortarboard badge. And 155 points earned my answer to : How can I stop others from formatting the hard drive in Windows 8?

In my opinion, this question was not directly related to Windows 8.

There are lots of questions which are not very useful, yet they earned many upvotes. Sometimes the answers were rather obvious. So you just have to play by the rules.
