The AnswerThon falls only partially on Shabbat -- the competition begins at midnight between Friday and Saturday. It ends at midnight between Sunday and Monday though. WikiAns…wers isn't discriminating against any particular religion but spread the competition over the weekend so as to ensure that EVERYONE will have at least 24 hours straight in which they can participate. If you're Jewish and want to participate, just wait until after Havdallah and get started...no one says you can't be a winner by answering questions in only 1/2 the time -- everyone has to take a break at some point.
