If I read in Norwegian, and listen in Norwegian, then fine, I can see that should only count as one thing, i.e. either a book, or audio, but not both. However, if I read in Norwegian and listen in German (neither of which is my native language, and both of which are registered for the SC for me), then I'd think there would be a good case for counting both. As it happens, that would be a rather academic question in this case, since I have no intention of doing it (I want to get in as much Norwegian listening as I can). But it might be something to run by Cristina when she is next around and has time to answer. (Until then, it can certainly wait, as far as I am concerned).
This was discussed to death in the past. You can only count it for one or the other, not both. It's in one of the SC threads at the old site.
Thank you Serpent. I was never involved in the SC or any other challenges (except the "consistency challenge"), on the other site, so I would not have read it. I might take a wander over there again some time ...
Edit: OK - have started to read it, and I see where you were coming from ... thinking along the same lines as I was apparently. But you must have been over-ruled. Well fair enough, I'm not going to re-raise the arguments again here.
Another slightly different point: I think (at some time in the future, obviously, not for the current challenge), it might be worth considering having a separate Listening category for the SC, in addition to books and films. I think I'd rather have my hours of listening shown simply as that: hours of listening, and not converted into an equivalent number of films, since they are really two qualitatively different things. This would also mean that people who really can manage 100 or 200 films or whatever (or the TV equivalent) get full credit for that exercise, and not have it compared unfairly with people who did a large amount of audio-only. Or has the issue of a separate category for listening also been discussed to death before, and ruled out of court? I think anyway we are on the same page in being very pro-listening.
