I just read about this bot that counts your SC progress. Is it different from these bars I have as a signature? If it is, can someone send me a link that explains how I can subscribe? :roll:

Thank you!

Yes, it's different. The Twitter bot is here. Instructions for using it can be found near the bottom of the page on the Super Challenge site.

Thank you very much. It's just that in the links you sent me it says that it is for the 2017 challenge and the newest tweet of the bot is on August 13 2017. Isn't there a newer version for the 2019 challenge?

The bot isn't able to tweet but it does record everyone's tweets. Also, the page is for the current challenge even if it says 2017 (I don't remember what the problem was but basically this can't be fixed just by editing plain text).

Yeah the date was hard coded into the webpage on the first challenge and we haven't gotten around to changing it to read the date from the DB. But it is the current one.

Hello everybody. Has the bot gone down? I sent out a tweet last night that didnt seem to get picked up again. There was something odd with the formatting so I deleted and tried again a bit over an hour ago and it wasn't picked up again.

Worth noting I haven't updated since early July so perhaps it has something to do with my inactivity.

Tweet in question: https://twitter.com/picklelanguage/stat ... 3703962625

I completely forgot there was a bot for this challenge. If it's working I'll sign up now that I can twitter account I don't mind using for this sort of thing.

EDIT: I was able to register and it seems the bot is working. The only problem I've had is that on my last entry for Gaelic, it appears to have added the time (90 minutes) to my Gaelic film total but on the activity list below the total, it only shows the activity name and not the time, like it does for all other activity I've tweeted to the bot. I suspect that's an issue with the site and not the bot?
