Something goes wrong when there's not enough data for a proper graph. (and a lot of empty space after that)

That's strange, it looks fine for me. What browser are you using? I'll have a look into
it.

Thanks :)))
I use Firefox. It was always displayed fine during the previous challenge and in the beginning of this challenge too.

Does watching the entire Victory Parade in Moscow for about 1 hour counts as 1 film? I watched the parade with Russian commentary.

@QiuJP - Yes, it does. :)


I've seen a number of people who have "a plan" schedule for the Super Challenge, and are already trying "to catch up".

Planning is an awesome thing, don't get me wrong.

But things rarely go according to plan. I see a bunch of people looking at their SC experience so far with the perspective that they're failing because they aren't keeping up with their plan.

We have TWENTY MONTHS. It has been a grand total of a week so far. Yes, it's important to pace yourself (as much as you can). It's also important to plan (to an extent).

This is not going to be easy, but it will be rewarding. There will be days when you read two pages, and then there will be days when you're reading the end of a good book and you read 75. You will read more easily next year than you do now. That's the whole point of the challenge.

For those of you who plan (and stick with it most of the time), don't try to catch up. Just get back on track. If you missed yesterday's 30 pages, don't aim for 60 pages today. Read 30, and consider yourself back on track. Trying to "catch up" will only bury and discourage you.

I can't believe how much activity there has been in the past week for the Super Challenge! There are 20+ people who have logged at least 10 items. And quite a few that have done a lot more than that!

I'm really impressed with the people at the top. They have done amazing so far. They will be done before 2015 starts. :D

I'm even more impressed with how many people are actively participating this time around. Sixty-eight people have done something the first week for their Super Challenge. That is amazing! Keep the momentum going, everyone! :D

Great posts, Kerrie!

I'm also iffy about the idea of focusing on movies until the end of the year and only then starting to read. There's more instant gratification with movies, including the improvement of one's ranking. And I'm not against that, but movies/video can turn into an easy prey. For example I'm constantly tempted to just watch a random match I don't care about in Italian or Spanish. It's easier than reading 50 pages, but I know that in the long run I'll miss these reading moments, and making up for them will be much harder than completing most of my audio challenges.

I'm not bashing your strategy with French, Kerrie. You know what you are doing and I think it's great to use audiobooks and LR to prepare yourself for the reading part. But for those who can start reading now, there's no good reason not to. And of course there are various factors like level, time, whether you're focusing on a different language etc.

I am also immensely impressed at how much work people are doing - I mean WOW! Last time people took it slowly, this time over people seem to be working like they intend to finish the Super Challenge next month!

Well done everybody, I have a really good feeling about this year's Super Challenge :-)
