It looks like the bot hasn't been responding to anyone for about 18 hours.

Edit: now it's working again

I'm doing a full Spanish Challenge, and I'm behind, but not so behind that it's impossible to catch up.



I'm getting there! I still have a long way to go but I am making a decent amount of progress given my busy schedule.

I'm curious to see how others are doing. I have noticed that a few people are doing really well and I'm curious to see if they have seen any results given the massive amount of input they have received due to the SC.

Good luck to everyone and keep pushing on!

Anyone know why i can't access the super challenge website? Anyone else been having issues? I haven't been able to access it for ~1 month, just curious to see where I stand and if my progress graphs have improved but I can never get the page to load lately (computer idiot here, i.e. do not get IT technical at all, I'll be lost after 'url').

It went down when the forum was hacked and they haven't gotten it back up yet. They're working on it, but getting the forum itself fixed has been more of a priority. Also all tweets from 21 April to 3 May weren't processed and have to be sent again.

On a brighter note, I have managed to get a test version of the super challenge bot up and running. So it is being packaged up, and as soon as we work out how to proxy multiple websites from this server, then we'll be in business.

I signed up for two full challenges: Spanish and French. I have no problem to finish the Spanish one. I have half the amount of films and books needed. However, I am completely behind for French as I only started this month. I try to catch up for films, but I know it is impossible to read that many books.
