Is that ligit? Aren't you like already negative ten billion points? (The scoring system never made sense to me.)
It's legit. I'm starting tomorrow (June 1st), so what's occured up to now in the last six months is irrelevant since tomorrow is my start date.
Thus, my current score is 0.
I won't be trying to win, obviously. It's about keeping me in check on my French improvement mission for the rest of the year.
Scoring with the old challenge was a bit tricky. However, with this challenge 1 day = 1 day (or point). You miss a day, you lose a day (or point). Had I decided to back date my start date to Jan 1st this year knowing for certain that I'd missed 20 days of the 151 so far, I'd be sitting on a score of 131. Since I can't confirm my missed days, I'll just start with a clean slate from June 1st.
