    What does it mean, about zeroes being cut? That you have to read at least one page on the first day in order to stay in the game? 🙂

    So I was wondering… I wanted to do my usual Japanese tadoku, but I’d like to add another language to be able to change when I’m too tired or simply fed up or whatever… I considered Polish, but it feels like cheating: Actually it is my mother tongue. We moved to Germany when I was 2. German feels more like my mother tongue, because that’s what I used most of my life. So I never perfectly learnt Polish, but I don’t want to do any “unfair” competition.
    What do you think?

      I think doing polish would be fine 🙂

      I’m a native speaker of Russian and I signed up with Polish without any previous study of it (I’ll mostly read what I have recordings of)… I don’t think either of us is doing anything unfair;)

      Oh, a lot of reasons.♥
      Well, it’s one of the languages of my family heritage, my dad is from Belarus and my grandma speaks a little Polish. I also just love Slavic languages and have a bit of experience with some – Belarusian, Ukrainian, Croatian. And I like the country a lot. It’s kinda sad and I’ve now admitted this to myself for the first time, I suppose to have a nice experience travelling there I need to speak at least some Polish. BTW I’m hopefully going to Prague in May and will also spend a couple of days in Warsaw. That’s the reason I picked it for Tadoku – I need to get comfortable with the spelling.

      I’m also super-excited about Euro-2012 and I’ll do a 6 week challenge in Polish in May.

    Is it still possible to change one of my chosen languages (French) for Spanish? If yes, then how do I do it?

    There’s a bug while switching from a specific language to All. and there’s a typo, Portuguese not Portugese.
    And I’m guessing I’m not supposed to see my January stats when I click my username – or is it because experimental doesn’t count for the master ranks?

    These are very minor issues though… YAY TADOKU!

    i’ve read only tweets for now..and it says sentences are 194.12% of total looool.

    In fact the stats for Portuguese say I’ve read almost 7 pages, but my score is 19.06 despite having read 15 book pages in Polish.
    something’s wrong with the sentences counting thing… can’t find the link to the january stats but if there were errors with the percentage, they weren’t obvious like 78%+31%+5%.

      Oh right, yeah the ranking is still set up for single language use so the numbers will be slighty off when it comes to sentences. But the bot does calculate all of it correctly so no need to worry, I would fix that if this wasn’t the last time I was using this bot/ranking but I’ll be scrapping them after this round.

    my count is displayed incorrectly on the ranking page though, and the bot gives me incorrect info with each update:(
    new bot/ranking sounds exciting 😛

      Or is the count on the Portuguese page incorrect and does what i’ve read count as fewer sentences than it says?

        The counts on the individual language and breakdown pages are incorrect. It treats all sentences as worth 1/17th of a point when this is not true for any language but Japanese. The bot knows the difference but the site does not.

    Hey, I was registered, then lost a few days due to family commitments, but now I’m back in the game. I want to set a goal of 1000 pages read by the end of the challenge. In what format can I submit the goal? Thanks! がんばってね、みんな!

    I finally located the manual, and figured out how to set a reading goal. Thanks for the trouble!
