Every short (or long) stride in language learning brings us that much closer to fulfilling our language goals, and I feel that this last challenge has been particularly motivating for those of us who took a few more steps on that journey.

A special shout out to smallwhite_hk, carlyd734, and lingua2016, who topped the leaderboard for target language hours during this challenge, as well as three toots on the klaxon for smallwhite_hk again, along with ifthebirdswere and marianilsen11, who logged the most hours across all languages.

Well done, everyone, and hopefully we'll see many of you again in the next challenge...

Altogether, I count over 1,000 hours spent on target languages in our autumn challenge this year, which starts to approach twice as many hours if you take all languages into consideration. It was particularly encouraging, not only to see a general increase in the number of participants over last year, but also to read lots of inspiring and positive feedback throughout (and particularly towards the end) of this challenge.

A special congratulations goes to veskrnap for bringing home the gold with Japanese for target language hours, followed in hot pursuit by newcomers Bunnychuuuu and xbrilliantyears in 2nd and 3rd positions. And a respectful tip of the top hat is well overdue to BrunUgle for finally hitting gold in the total language hours category (just that one target hours gold medal left now for a full house!), as well as to marianilsen11 and ifthebirdswere for striking silver and bronze with some similarly impressive hours.

On a concluding note, well done to everyone who took part and made progress during the challenge, and a special ありがとうございました to smallwhite for setting up and promoting the last dozen or so 6WC threads - you have earned yourself an いちご大福!

Stealthwhite was flying black ops and clearly sworn to secrecy. ;)
