Congratulations! You’ve been named as a Quora Top Writer for 2016. You should see a red Top Writer icon on your profile page that indicates you are part of the most recent class of Quora Top Writers. Quora has chosen you as a Top Writer for 2016 in recognition of your unique contribution to the Quora community.
As a Top Writer, you are invited to participate in the Quora Writers Feedback group on Facebook. This is a group for Top Writers to report issues, provide feedback on new features, participate in beta programs, and learn about new events or programs. Everything that happens in the group is announced in various parts of Quora, such as the Top Writer blog, so you should feel no pressure to join.
You are also invited to Top Writer events, such as the Quora New York Fall Meetup and the Top Writers Open House at Quora HQ in Mountain View.
Thanks again for your contribution,
Jonathan Brill, Writer Relations Lead
What I write on Quora:
My primary Quora writing revolves around: comics and superhero media. This chart lists the separate categories the bulk of my essays are in: Superheroes, Marvel Comics, Comic Art, and cosmology. I am strong on the heroes/villains and their back stories, but have only a limited interest in the behind the scenes gossip common to many followers of such media, though I do write on costume design, art and special effects.
My interests, which I am slowly developing on Quora include: computer technology which was my longest running career, general science ideas, astronomy, military technology, concepts and leadership, writing, both the craft and the development of stories and structure. I am also interested in clean energy technology, autism advocacy and future city planning and development.
We are very excited to announce Quora’s 2016 Top Writers. The Top Writers program recognizes some of Quora’s most consistent, insightful, and valuable contributors. Top Writers are writers who make consistent, high quality contributions. Selection criteria include: the number, quality, and popularity of contributions, and moderation history. Top Writers often have significant domain expertise and are Most Viewed Writers in one or multiple topics.
2015 was a great year for contributing to Quora. There were more contributions than in any year prior, and more writers than ever earning the Top Writer badge. As a result, we’re recognizing more Top Writers today than any year in the program’s history, with more to follow in March and May. Also, last month we announced Top Question Writers program to recognize the people who are writing the most popular and engaging questions on Quora.
If you are a 2016 Top Writer, you will get a Quora message today and you will have a red Top Writer badge next to your name on your profile page.
This year’s Top Writers and Top Question Writers will receive a Welcome Package that includes the following:
- A Patagonia messenger bag embroidered with Quora Top Writer 2016
- A one year subscription to New York Times, Digital Edition
This is the first of three announcements for the 2016 class. If you were not named Top Writer today, you may still be named a Top Writer 2016 or Top Question Writer 2016 as part in one of our two additional announcements, in March and May.
All Top Writers and (including those not in the current class) will have access to Top Writer events such as the Quora Open House in Mountain View and the NY Fall Meetup, and will have access to beta and feedback opportunities.
The 2016 Quora Open House in Mountain View will be held on Friday, June 3, 2016. Please RSVP here:
