Super Challenge 2020-21 progress reports

Postby Brun Ugle » Thu Aug 13, 2020 3:15 pm

Since the Super Challenge bot is still not up and running and isn’t likely to be in the near future, it seems like a good idea to at least have a single thread where we all can record our progress. I’m not going to make any rules about how often you should update or how to format your updates, though I would suggest to try to keep them both reasonably concise and at the same time informative. I plan to use progress bars for each part of the challenge, with the names of books/films listed under each progress bar. In the interest of keeping my lists from getting ridiculously long, as they do on the bot page, I won’t list each episode of a TV series, but write something like “episodes ## to ##”.

Update as often as you feel like, but considering the length of the challenge, once every month or two is probably often enough.

I started the year thinking I would get back into watching movies, but lost interest early in the year, before the SC even started.

I signed up for a full challenge in three languages, though I'd be happy to finish a half each for the reading. I'm on track to complete a full for the audio part.

I track actual pages and minutes on on excel sheet; I'll post a simplified version here.

And finally, I gave a little star next to some of my favorite things.
