It starts at midnight tonight. Are we going to have a registration thread before then? And will the bot be active before then.

I don't want to pressurize the people setting these up, if it takes some extra time I don't mind waiting and tracking my progress myself. It does help to get new people in if we have somewhere to build up the excitement though!

It does seem odd how long it is taking for the thread to be posted that really only needs two post that are already written...

Wrong thread. Please delete.

You're not a C1 (or B1 or whatever) if you haven't tested.

Maybe, to avoid confusion, you could put 2018/2019 in the title as well? And maybe start a new registration thread, unless we are expecting someone else to do that?

I've changed the title of this thread until Serpent posts the new one. Meanwhile, I know it is already 1st of May in some timezones as I post this. The BOT is NOT ACCEPTING TWEETS yet! Please don't post to the BOT until I make the announcement in the new thread that it is up and running. Just keep track of what you're doing in a spreadsheet or something until we can get it sorted. If you try to use the bot at the moment you'll lose your entries when we bring up the new DB.

We are having some technical difficulties but hope to have the bot back up and running shortly! Sorry for the delay.

Anyone who thinks assembly language programming is difficult, obviously hasn't used Rust.
