I work on the theory if I am off by 5 pages on one book I will be 5 pages off somewhere else in the opposite direction and it will all level out. Life is too short and besides what is a couple of pages between friends?

Yeah but some of us are weird and read the appendix, references, etc. :oops:

Hello Everyone!

The Super Challenge officially ends at midnight on the 31st of December where you are. Please be aware that we'll be stopping SC Bot data collectors on the 1st of January 2020. Probably about UTC−11 which should give everyone the 1st of January to tweet their last data. Don't forget to tweet your scores to the SC Bot before the challenge ends! If you don't do it before the collectors are turned off your score will not be registered.

This is my first year using the bot. What's the tag (or whatever) to tweet our final score?

The bot calculates the score. You just have to have tweeted all your results so it can do the maths. :)

Sorry Rick, noob here.

So I've been tweeting things like @langchallenge #Esperanto #read 15 pages. But I've not been tweeting anything about my current score. Was I supposed to do that along the way? Like monthly when we report our scores here in the forum? If so, how?

As you've been entering your books and films it's been keeping a running total the whole time. You can see yours here.

Oh jeez, too many challenges. I was thinking the 365. I thought by score it meant 204, 335, whatever.

Thanks Lianne and Rick!

Is there going to be a results thread, or should we just keep it all here? I'm not sure if this round actually had a moderator or organizer.
