Yay thank you! i think if anyone wants to test, it's fine, right? it just won't be kept when the official challenge starts, because of course what you do now doesn't count for the challenge.

No please don't. I am not sure i can clear the books logged without clearing the user as well. Best to play it safe.

Thanks so much for your work on the bot, rdearman! I've been very much on the fence on whether or not to sign up for the SC, but everyone's enthusiasm makes me want to jump into the fray. :D Your own ambitious goals in particular make me think that maybe it's possible to define way too ambitious meaningful goals for all my target languages. XD

There is just one little ceveat - I've noticed that Latin is not yet on the list of possible languages. It'd be most awesome if you could add it. Pretty please? :)

I've inserted all the ISO 2 letter codes for languages. I think we've covered just about all languages you'd want to learn. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: (go ahead... sign up) bwahahahah!

I'm still a little confused about where all the threads related to the super challenge are, so I already posted this in the wrong place....

I tried to register for #Tagalog and the bot announce that I had registered for Tamil...

I think the iso code for Tagalog is tl, which could be confusing. I found a bunch of subtitles on opensubtitles that I was excited were in Tagalog, and which were actually in Tamil. Maybe there is some confusion somewhere...

I'm trying to study enough French and Spanish so that I will be able to be an outstanding tourist next summer in Europe.
I use my Tagalog every day.
I read and watch in Spanish and French whenever I can.
My Samoan rusts away in the depths of my mind.

I've used the actual International Standards Organisation codes for languages. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ISO_639-1_codes

You're correct the ISO codes are:
tl - Tagalog
ta -Tamil

Send me a PM if you want me to manually adjust your languages in the BOT. I can go into the database and change your associated languages.
