What's the hashtag for Ancient Greek? I've been logging everything as (Modern) Greek, but I read somewhere, there was a special code for Ancient Greek. I'm just being curious.

By the way, I haven't experienced any problems at all with the bot. All my tweets were accepted and answered without any delay.

#ancientgreek should work, for the short one you have to ask sprachprofi, search the old forum or ask someone who's submitted tweets in this language (or just check their tweets - I checked those who signed up with it as their TL, but they're either barely active or so active that i don't know how much i'd have to scroll)

Is it required to tag what you do in your studies? I saw others doing and I wonder with I'm doing it wrong... '^'

It's not required but this way you can get cool graphs/charts :D It's also up to you which tags you use - it's fine to have just 2-3, like reading, listening, speaking...

If you log a lot of hours (at least 4-5 per day on average), a lack of tags may be particularly frustrating for others.

Why would anyone's logging method affect me and why would 4-5-hour people's affect me more?

That's the pattern I'm getting from the occasional "are they cheating?" posts (usually concerning the SC though). It's frustrating not to know what you're comparing yourself to.

I realise that I'm rather late but is it still possible to register for the challenge? I've never done a 6 week challenge before, almost entirely due to my unwillingness to use twitter (despite it not being compulsory), but I've now given in.

People have been registering over the whole week, I think it's not too late!

I dreamed in Quechua last night, seems like the language is getting in my brain! :mrgreen:

Yes, I also dreamed of Irish mutations last night!

Unfortunately, it was a nightmare, because I made a mistake and used lenition instead of eclipsis. :mrgreen:
