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.

Languages: English (native speaker); focusing mostly on Indonesian. Working to maintain German, Spanish, French and Italian; working a little less on Hungarian and Esperanto, more to maintain than to build a bigger foundation, but someday....

I'm withdrawing from the challenge. I actually withdrew a while ago but I didn't tell myself.

Final score: Generic ~30 days out of many more than 30.

Can I join for the second half of the year, French only? I have been doing at least 30 minutes per day since the 1st of July and I am committed to keeping that up for the rest of the year.

The idea would be to start with 0 points on 1 July, so I'm not going to compete with anyone on points, but simply using the group encouragement to keep going!

Of course, not a problem, jeffers. Good luck!

I just posted for June, and I am sorry for my tardy post.
My stats through the end of June are not great - only 142 days total - and July's stats will will be even worse. Oh well - onward and upward!
