Island challenges are 24-hour challenges that involve all users of an Island to publish one or more content related to the topic of the challenge. The advantage of the Island challenges is certainly the involvement that the latter will bring to the Island itself; in fact there will be a boom of posts related not only to the topic of the challenge, but also to the topic of the Island, which will bring enormous benefits on the quality, involvement and popularity points of the Island (Island points).
