Since an enhanced collaborative question-writing system is still in the works, as a temporary fix feel free to enter very rough/short questions as comments in this discussion. If people vote with smileys on their interests, we can fast-track the happiest questions for further development.

Metaculus help: Predicting
Predictions are the heart of Metaculus. Predicting is how you contribute to the wisdom of the crowd, and how you earn points and build up your personal Metaculus track record.
The basics of predicting are very simple: move the slider to best match the likelihood of the outcome, and click predict. You can predict as often as you want, and you're encouraged to change your mind when new information becomes available.
The displayed score is split into current points and total points. Current points show how much your prediction is worth now, whereas total points show the combined worth of all of your predictions over the lifetime of the question. The scoring details are available on the FAQ.
Thanks for predicting!
