I think I'll be spending 40 days in the wilderness on this one! Work has very rudely interrupted :-(|

Good call - she's not been in the thread yet.|

Round 3 standings are now final with all scores. After the first quarter of the track, at least 4 players are still on track to complete the entire sprint with a total time of less than 24 hours. Not that I'd see it as likely since some of the later tasks are more difficult than the early ones, but then we can still hope and be surprised!|

How many tasks are there in the sprint Wes?|

Oh I don't like that bit about some of the later tasks being more difficult. I'm going to worry now|
Where's the chocolate?

Of course they are more difficult - not impossibly so, but we're slightly upping the ante as we go (remember that even the same task might be much more complex if we just attach "you can't use a category you used before")|

If I had been paying attention in the beginning (I didn't think I had made it in time to start, I think that's the extra 5 days), I'd be third place. I'm still pretending that five days 2 1/2 hours (ish) didn't happen. Lol. So my goal is to finish in under a day, excluding my faux pas to start.|
So... In under six days. :-P
Reply #629. May 16 12, 4:43 PM
Oh yeah. 12 days. We might be able to complete the sprint in under 24 days. :D|

Can I get a refresher on the rejection penalties? Or can someone tell me where it is?|
Reply #632. May 17 12, 2:55 PM
4th to 9th - 1 hour each|
10th to 12th - 2 hours each
13th and up - 4 hours each.

Well I am finally caught up.... Took a huge hit on the round 3 (7 Days).... :) Didn't know how to find the author challenge titles so created my own title and hit submit. Then I had to wait for that title to clear before I could submit the next one..... :( Makes me very sad because my completion for both the quizzes was actually quite fast....Oh well now it seems it is about finishing the sprint instead of working for a fast time :) Still thanks for the adventure Kyle and Wes :)|

The Sprint is definitely an endurance feat-- I think as people go along they'll realize that simply getting to the end intact is the real test. We've got some doozies on the way. ;)|

When's the next leg start, Kyle and Wes? I have to have minor surgery today and have a dopey looking eyepatch on for a couple of days. It's hard to type and I look like a tubby pirate|
Reply #636. May 18 12, 12:00 AM
Haven't decided yet. Likely mid-next week? We'll know within the next couple of days.

Coachpauly, I assume you saw all the postings telling you various routes to accessing the titles?|
Reply #638. May 18 12, 2:35 AM
As a general rules information for all players (due to a case we had on my round 4 clue):|
If you submit a quiz with a title and category that is within the clue for the round, but an editor changes it to something that will not fit during the edit process, you must write a new quiz to the same clue. However, that rewrite will NOT be timed (your submission time remains that of the first written quiz), instead you will be given two revisions (so a maximum of 8 hours loss) as a penalty.
This does however not apply if your submission was already outside the clue's rules when you sent it in - in that case, the wrong quiz will count as never written for the sprint (since you didn't follow the clue) and only the new one will count.
So be sure that you do follow the rules!

Thanks Kyle, I'll be as good as new in a day or so!|
