WIT stands for The WikiAnswers Influential Teens. This program provides a safe place for teens to hang out online, ask and answer questions, and even gain the skills to assist the Answers’ Q&A community through special projects! WIT is a great opportunity for teens to learn cooperation, understanding, and leadership skills. It’s a fun program, a unique experience, and a terrific resume/college application builder!
WIT is divided into 4 divisions, allowing members to choose which tasks they enjoy most:
Keep an eye out for WIT Explorers! This division is for those members who would like to participate in all facets of the site rather than focus on one particular aspect. To name a few, missions may include answering questions, recategorizing, featuring, and working on flagged questions.
Our fearless WIT Warriors focus on new categories and unsupervised categories. Tasks include seeding new questions, recategorizing questions, cleaning up unsupervised categories, and jumping in to assist with categories that need extra help.
Watch out for those WIT Trailblazers! The Trailblazers focus specifically on answering questions. Their focus could be on newer categories, current event categories, specific categories of interest and featured categories.
Meep! Beep! Here come the WIT Roadrunners! They tackle special projects assigned to their division, clean up alternates and merges of various questions, help Supervisors clean up problem areas in their categories as necessary, remove personal information from answers, and various category clean-up.
And these awesome teens have been busy this year! So far in 2014, they have answered 460 questions, done 5,330 recategorizations, 1,410 edits, and edited and unflagged 250 flagged questions. Membership has grown 20%, with 178 awesome teens in the program, and the number of missions completed is up 100% since August 2013.
The WIT program coordinator is Melissa aka Melbrown2013. WIT is currently open to teens between the ages of 13 and 18, have a few quality contributions on Answers.com, are in good standing on the site, and complete the WIT Membership Application. The number of contributions isn’t as important as the quality, and desire to be involved in WIT!
If you’re a teen and would like to become a part of this amazing program, contact Melissa at: melbrown2013 at wikianswers.com. Replace “at” with “@” and omit the spaces.

The much anticipated AnswerThon is hosted by Answers four times each year. Registrants for the event compete during a specified time period to answer as many unanswered questions as they can. It’s easy to win! In fact, if you answer just 10 questions, you’re automatically entered in a drawing to win an Amazon gift card.
How many questions can YOU answer?
We’re saving the bulk of our brags for our end-of-the-year sound off, but we just can’t keep quiet about one of the WikiReviewers‘ accomplishments this year. And boy are we proud of this one! In April, WikiReviewers dove into the Uncategorized category with a goal of recategorizing 5,000 questions. We thought that would be a pretty tough task. Well, you’ll be amazed to know by the end of the month, we had recategorized an astronomical 425,988 questions!! Turns out we set our sights a little low on that one, and as more WikiReviewers pitched in, we exceeded our goal far beyond what we expected!
In the past year, WikiReviewers have completed a walloping 14,978 missions, making hundreds of thousands of needed edits on the site! We’ve also gained over 30 new members since the first of the year!
There are five divisions in the WikiReviewers Program, each with their own specific types of assignments. Robin, the program coordinator, places newcomers to the program in the most suitable category for them, based on a review of their contributions to the site.
If you happen to meet up with a WikiReviewer on the site, give them a pat on the back. They certainly deserve it!
It’s exciting to be part of the WikiReviewers Program! If you would like to join us, message Robin, the program coordinator and let her know.
