Why not add a puzzle game section to Quora to determine whose questions/answers/votes to take more seriously?

Quora could add a puzzle game section so that people who score higher on these games (e.g., Sudoku, Tetris, crosswords, etc.) would have more influence in terms of having their answers ranked higher, their votes count for more, and their questions taken more seriously.

Also, higher puzzle solving score could be used to resolve fights between users who keep changing something back and forth (e.g., the topics for a question).

Would this improve the quality of content on Quora?
tynamite's avatar The value of Quora comes from people answering about their insight of personal experiences or topical things, using anecdotal knowledge that could never be documented on Wikipedia.

Using puzzles to give or not give credibility to Quora users based on their intelligence, would defeat the object, as Quora is not the site people go on to get factual answers about things. A Stack Exchange approach will not work.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
