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!

It is broken at the moment because it had the same hacker code injection as the main site. We've not yet had time to re-install on the new service. But the bot will pickup all the messages once it is back online, so you can continue to tweet as per normal.

The bot has responded to my most recent tweets, but I still can't open the page. Has the page changed? The link on the bot's Twitter profile doesn't work either.

The website is still down, but I turned on the bot to gather up posts. There seems to be a problem with the bot and it hasn't picked up tweets between 21st and 3rd of May. So you might want to repost them. I'm going to make an announment via twitter later this weekend. :(

I submitted 40 tweets and the first 11 didn't go through. I reposted them but now the order is incorrect :|
How often does the bot check for new tweets nowadays?

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.
