After quite nice reception of the idea to have topic challenges for our site we are about to start the first one. I allowed myself to pick the one that seems a bit more easily accessible and promotable from the top-most voted ideas.

Biweekly topic challenge #1, January 24th - February 7th

Keeping my gadget data private

Additional we plan to have an event in chat on January 24th, 18:00 GMT—Topic Challenge #1—to kick off the challenge, gather more opinions and ideas on the challenge and get some starting buzz going.

This topic doesn't seem to need an extra tag, but remember to tag every challenge question with and likely a tag for the gadget in question.

Why am I posting this so far in advance? Since we haven't got any pro-tems yet we need the help of the CMs to get the chat event and this post featured. Which I hope they will support us with. On Monday I'll also add an answer to the Meta SE question about topic challenges and I'd like to have our end setup by then. It also gives everyone a moment to prepare a bit, so hopefully we can start with a few privacy questions on Tuesday right away (tm).

It also allows all of you who might have ideas about where to promote us especially on the topic of privacy to prepare a bit more and maybe pull some experts in starting Tuesday.

So let's do this!
