How Questions are selected for Ask Velma
You must be a member of "Velma's Forum" to post a question.
Currently we are reworking
A little bit about how the questions get selected:
We try to select about 15 to 20 questions a month. Here are some of the filters we use in making the selection.
Usually, this narrows the field of questions down to about 50. We still need to filter a bit more. Here is some of the way in which we make the final cut.
If you sent us a question that was not published, you are not alone. Feel free to send in another. What may get crowded out one month, may work fine the next. Some people send in multiple questions, and we try to get to them, but quite frankly, they are most likely to get cut in a busy month because they take more time. "Ask Velma" is updated about once a month. Sometimes, it takes longer. This is especially true if there is a lot of work being done elsewhere on the site.
"Ask Velma" questions are answered by a team of Velma experts, ranging from the east to the west coast of the USA, and as far away as New Zealand. All questions are then reviewed here and a consensus is reached before the monthly page is put together. Are you a Velma expert? If so, write me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we may ask you to try your hand at it!
