  • I've just converted posts in the Challenges category over to a new Challenge post type that awards more reputation per upvote, starting now. Retroactive reputation changes are being handled as I type this; you should see updated rep counts shortly.

  • **Update:** Since making this change, we've added the option to vary the reputation granted for a given post type *by category*. Previously the setting was global for a community, which was why we had to create the Challenge post type. Now that we can set questions to grant 10 rep in the Challenges category but the default rep elsewhere, we've changed the post types back to Question and removed the Challenge type. The only difference you should have noticed is how posts were labeled in user profiles and search results.
  • (This means if you want questions or answers on meta to give non-default rep, you can have that.)
