多読 2012 Round 1 GO!

The contest is now officially on in Japan! So everyone get ready to start reading! Quick notes:

  1. The bot now properly calculates sentences from multiple languages
  2. The language you registered first is your primary language. Meaning that if you do not include a language tag for an update, the bot will automatically assume you were reading in your primary language.
  3. I should roll out the new bracket based ranking soonish.
  4. The tag for the Korean language has been corrected.  It is now #ko

Happy reading! Good Luck!

P.S. : Happy New Year!

多読 2012 : End of the World Edition Round 1 signups!

Ok so first off we’ve kind of tenetively decided the 2012 schedule. We will 3 month long contests in January, June, and October.  In addition to those rounds, we will be having some shorter 2 weeks rounds (for testing) and maybe some lighting round stuff (more on this later). So without further ado, I’m opening the register! Sorry for the wait! As usual, here is the up to date list.

Note:  As per jimjamjeniko’s suggestion, I have added the ability to set a goal for yourself the contest and will rank participants by goal (more on this too later). So when you register this time add “#target {number}“(minus the {}) to your tweet to set your goal for this round.

Please consult the manual for registration instructions! “if you do not set the language before closing the #reg command with a ; , you will default to japanese ”

Big thanks to all the participants we had this year! I never imaged our little contest would grow to be so popular!

Congrats to BelgianDraftHorse for winning Tadoku 2011 (despite not having won any single round) with  18880.37 read pages! He even edges out his closest competition by a nice, wide margin of about 3k pages. Pretty ridiculous dude, good job (this wont happen next year :P).

A Poll about the 2012 schedule

Before I begin the signups for the January contest, I would like to ask you guys what kind of schedule you would like to see this year? Some participants were suggesting we have shorter and more numerous rounds while others suggested keeping month long rounds and just having few of them (3 a year). What do the rest of you think?

edit: There would be a poll here but im retarded so just post it in the comments, thanks.
