Cleanup Week (April 2012) has been a fantastic effort by the whole Ask Ubuntu community.
That last word is important - community - without our fantastic users, this site would not be as great as it has become.
First - the major special thanks has to go to @Oli - without Oli, this cleanup week would simply have never happened. The website & cleanup routines were invaluable.
Your community moderators have been keeping a close eye on proceedings. The common consensus was wow - we just could not believe the commitment of numerous people to the cleanup effort.
At our low point, Ask Ubuntu was at 72% answered rate. Second to last of all the Stack Exchange sites.
However, with the help of many - and this week in particular, we have reached the dizzying heights of 84.7% answered rate. That puts us up to the number 2 of the top 5 (in terms of size) of the Stack Exchange sites.
We were looking for not only those questions that could and should be closed but more importantly, improving both questions and answers, upvoting great answers and creating new great answers to almost forgotten questions.
It has been hard … and if we had more we would have given more prizes.
In life there are winners and losers - but on this occasion we consider all the entrants as winners.
