I had the same problem at the beginning. Now my tweets use this format and it works very well:

Code: Select all

I've had the same problem before. If you put the time (or pages) before the title, you shouldn't have any problems. At least that's been my experience. :D

Now, I same the problem. I logged a wrong entry for a movie in Chinese and also made several editing mistakes. Eventually, the bot refused to edit or delete the entry, telling me that I already did. So I logged it again as a new tweet, and this time it worked. So, now I have a wrong entry and 90 minutes to many. Can someone help me delete the wrong one?

I noticed today that it's the exact halfway point through the Super Challenge. How's everyone doing?

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

As you can see from my signature, I'm pretty far behind. I'm certainly not going to finish for either Spanish or Chinese. :(

I think I've done even worse. I've continued with films/audio on my one full challenge (French), but have all but ignored the others. I think I will just drop out of the Greek and German half challenges, and I might then find more inspiration to read in both French and Hindi.

I am also behind on German (no wonder I haven't progressed as quickly as I'd have liked...)

There is still time for me to catch up, but I really need to develop a better reading habit!

I'm reasonably on track for French, but I'm definitely not going to make it for Russian. :oops: I'm still aiming to get closer, but not doing an amazing job at the moment because of other responsibilities.
