I have cleared up the DB and fixed the settings. But the is an issue with the DB connection from the webserver. I don't have access to the files, and I need to get CLI access to fix them so I am just waiting for that.

Could be an hour, a day, etc. I don't know.

The Wiki has been neglected for a few years, but it has a very useful section of "Super Challenge Recommendations":
https://learnanylanguage.fandom.com/wiki/Category:Super_Challenge_Recommendations

I found it interesting to skim through the recommendations for French, including some quick film reviews I wrote several years ago. Sadly, there are fewer recommendations in most other languages, but it would be great if people could add in books and films they enjoy while doing the current challenge.

Hey everyone, just a heads up that I made a thread for development of the SC Bot in the technical discussion forum: link. If you're interested in the bot I would suggest you keep an eye on the thread, I will update it with any progress I'm making. Eventually I hope to get to adding some new features or improving some alreading existing stuff, but I have to get it up and running first!

It doesn't work for me.


Darn. But what doesn't work? When I download from the link and open in Excel everything works as I expect it to.

The place to change the language names is in cells A5, A10 and A15. The labels are then created in cells A49:B59, from where the chart labels are drawn.


Mine definitely doesn't work like yours does either, I've modified some things a bit myself though. Could it be going through google drive that's messing it up? Is there another way to host the file that we could go through?

Appreciate the work on the dashboard, it looks cool and is useful even as is right now.

If you have a suggestion for a file sharing site, let me know.

Keeping it within Google, maybe Google Drive would work vs. uploading it to Sheets? Or maybe Dropbox?

Could someone please post a link to the post that gives instructions on how to add the tracker to the bottom of your posts.

I promise that I will actually save the instructions this time, instead of having to look for it and then ask every single challenge.

Edit: Found it. The post is linked below.

Since the bot is kinda broken, this means we are not obliged to report our progress, right? Then is it enough if I just track them in my signature and language log thread once I join?

Yes, you've never actually had to use the bot, the first few Super Challenges didn't have a bot, we all just kept track ourselves and posted the result in the thread. :)
