Including linguistics - does that mean that I can include books about my own native language, about language learning in the context of my native language, etc., and can I log them as #Norwegian or should I use #linguistics?

Ask Sprachprofi (@germanpolyglot on twitter).
the tag for #linguistics just counts as #multilingual so I don't think it's meant to include your native language.

Ok, I'll just leave it out, then. It's not really the same thing, anyway, and it had never occurred to me before linguistics was mentioned.

G'day everyone, I found this forum on the same day this Challenge started (yesterday).
I'm on for Ancient Greek.
Don't know if a language that I'm currently studying at uni counts, but we started 3 weeks ago.
I won't be uploading class hours -_-''
We're using Athenaze in class, and I've been using Assimil (on lesson 18 or something).
I'm from Australia but live in Italy.
I'm learning German (extensive exposure and iTalki 1-2x/week) + Latin (Assimil and Wheelers in class).

It's very competitive up there at the top of the scoreboard. I downloaded a highly addictive puzzle app 2 days ago, and now I've fallen from 2nd place to 4th place :|

To ensure a level playing field, everyone please proceed to download the app here: Alcazar :twisted:

The bot ignored one of my tweets yesterday. I have no idea why as the tweet had the same form as all my other tweets. I haven't noticed that it's ignored anything before, but I haven't always checked so carefully. I only noticed this time because the missing tweet was worth 43 minutes and it meant my total for the day was strangely low. If it had ignored something worth only 10 minutes, I might not have noticed.

Did you get a notification from the bot? I have had this happen a couple of times with 6WC and SC but then I just resend it after a long period of time. I notice that 62C bot is much slower to respond than SC.

That's interesting, as both respond every five minutes (00:00, 00:05 etc). The Tadoku bot responds every minute.
Out of these bots only the SC one will let you know if your tweet failed.
