Our new Bounty Board allows Experts Exchange members to request article content about any technical subject. For instance, you might want to know more about how C# compares to Java, or you might want to gain a better understanding about how to use a certain Microsoft Excel formula. Experts can “claim” a “wanted” Bounty Board article, write about it and earn points for sharing their expertise with the community on a topic they know is in-demand.
With the Bounty Board, Experts Exchange community members can:
- Request articles from Experts on subjects that you want to learn
- Earn points and gain additional recognition for writing high-demand articles
- Find targeted content to increase your technical knowledge
To request a Bounty Board article (a “Wanted Subject”), please follow these steps:
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a Bounty Board article
- Please include the title of the article you are requesting and a description of what you are looking for so that the article author can provide exactly the type of article you are requesting.
- We will email you back to confirm that your bounty can be placed on the Bounty Board.
- Once your article request has been confirmed, it will appear in the “Wanted” section at the top of the Bounty Board.
- The description of your article will appear when you hover over the title of the article.
To claim and publish a Bounty Board article, follow these steps:
- Select a “Wanted” bounty from the Bounty Board that you would like to cover.
- Email email@example.com to claim the Bounty, please include the Bounty title in the subject line.
