The last time the bot was running, I requested and was granted a code for Sami/Northern Sami, but it seems to have disappeared again. It's not in the language list, and I've tried tweeting #se, which I think was the one we used to have, but it doesn't work. Any chance we could get that back?

Done. Check the list for the code.

As I read somewhere, registering half-challenges is not possible, right? So I registered full challenges now.

How do I get these fancy reading-progress signatures that some people in the forum are using?

Edit your signature with by going to the 'User Control Panel' dropdown under your username in the top right; select the 'Profile' tab; and then the 'Edit Signature' tab on the left.
Use the progress bar code, with whatever numbers fit your challenge:

Code: Select all

[progress= ]0/100[/progress]

In my case, that's

Code: Select all

[progress= ]0/50[/progress] 1/2 Super Challenge - Latin Reading

and you can see the results below.

I have made a correction to the date calculations in the database to fix the calculation of how many books/films you'll end with. I might have been the only one who noticed. :)

Thanks, I saw it, but thought it was going to get better with more data points.

Random question... This is my first time, so I'm not up to speed on everything yet. What do the medals and the little blue star after some people's scores mean on the website?

(From memory) You get stars when you reach 25, 50,75,100 books or films. The metals are for streaks.
