Ah I was wondering if I had to inform of my score somewhere!

AnneL - Korean - Specific - Beginning January 1, 2020 Score 1/31/20 = 31

KOREAN - Specific
2020-01-01 to 2020-01-31

Cumulative score: 31

Happy to say the challenge already kept me going a few days where I would have done nothing active otherwise.

German - Specific

Days studied: 30
Days missed: 1

Hebrew - Specific

Days studied: 31
Days missed: 0
Calculated Score this interval: 31
Cumulative score: 31

Note: I started logging with a spreadsheet, but often finish studying in the evening and don't want to be on the computer. I'm going to experiment with pencil and paper logging in February. Also, I'm having doubts about the value of commitment to Hebrew right now. I will see how February goes and how it fits in with the goals I'm working towards right now.

Generic (French, RussianSpanish):
1/1/2020 to 31/1/2020
Days studied: 24
Days missed: 7
Score for this interval: 17
Cumulative score: 17

Really petered off towards the end of the month but getting back into it. I knew it wouldn’t be great though, so just concentrating on the fact that I did do some study.

Edited for basic misunderstanding of the rules! :D

FIRST THINGS FIRST! I will be editing the scoreboard post as soon as I submit this post, so if you have reported a score and I did not update it, please let me know (do give me half an hour or so). Below are a couple of discrepancies. I hope neither of you are offended that I posted this in the thread; my goal is for everyone to have a reminder of how we are scoring this year.

I'm coming up with one more day than you are. The days should be inclusive, which would give you a total of 27 days. Please let me know whether you actually started on 1/6, or whether the days studied or days missed should be adjusted here! For now, I'm going to go ahead and record the score as you calculated it (it would be correct if you actually started on 1/6.)

Remember that you get -1 point for each day that you did not study. The way you have it calculated would be if you get 0 points for each day that you didn't study. Instead, it should be 24-7=17


Finally, my updated scores for myself:
