With the release of the long-awaited continuation of the Star Wars saga in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and due to popular demand we're ending this year with a bang. From 2015-12-18 00:00 UTC to 2015-12-31 23:00 UTC we're challenging you to all your great questions about anything Star Wars (conveniently taggable with ).1

Once the challenge is over, we'll tally the results and winners (by question votes) here. Also don't forget to suggest and vote for new topics for our next possible challenge.

May the force be with you!

1) This is actually a general policy here to be followed for every question, but seeing how this film is a rather big thing on the internet and people can react quite sensitive to spoilers, we would once again remind everyone that spoilers in question titles are to be strictly avoided. If you see a spoiler in someone else's question titles, feel free to edit it out or bring it to attention so it can be fixed as fast as possible.
