I have an interesting idea for a promotional event/contest. Please feel free to advise for it, against it, suggest variants or anything.
The gaming site recently ran a contest about new questions related to two game releases- this contest really enhanced the community membership and quality of good content over there. In a similar vein, I propose a contest here where people ask questions about an exciting history book or documentary/biography that is set to release soon. If there are two such books (one could be an older book with popular or controversial findings), we could encourage new questions on these and award awesome prizes based on how many people read/view the tagged questions for each (most popular questions would win).
- What are history books or documentaries/biographies that you are excited about?
- What are your thoughts on the effectiveness of this contest idea for history?
- Are there popular history events/studies/books forthcoming that other people are excited about?
