Questions or problems with completed task posts will be posted here.

If you have questions about your points on the Readerboard:

1. Make sure that the Readerboard has been updated through the post that you are concerned about.
2. Please check your math.
3. Check to see if one of your posts is listed in this thread with a question. If so, please make a NEW POST in the Completed tasks thread to clear up the question. DO NOT go back and edit the original post. I will not go backwards in the completed task thread to pick up points.
4. To avoid further questions/problems, please refer to the TASK DESCRIPTIONS and the POSTING REQUIREMENTS.

Thank you for helping keep the record keeping for the challenge as manageable as possible.

Mary - post 23

Welcome, Mary. We have several Marys in our records, but no one with the Readerboard name of Mary. If you previously posted with a different Readerboard name, please repost with that name.

If you do not have a Readerboard name, please request one in the Readerboard Names thread. That will get you entered into our challenge records. Once that is complete, please repost including your Readerboard name.

Task 10.8 - The task requires the genre historical fiction or history to appear on the book's main page. Rebel has neither of these genres on it's main page.

Task 30.7 - The task description states: "If both dice are the same, roll again until you get two different numbers."

Two books that both fit option 6 will not work.

When you repost, you will also need to "Indicate in your post which author(s) are new to you."

Task 10.10 - The task requires "a main character [who] is a military veteran (a former member of the armed forces)". I don't believe My Brother Sam Is Dead fits that requirement. From the reviews of the book, it does not appear as if Sam left the service. He remained a soldier to the end. If there is a main character who is a veteran please repost and identify the veteran.

Kristi, I'm sorry. You are right. For some reason I had 5.1 with 15 points and my spread sheet believed me.

I've corrected it.

Task 30.1, option 1 should be a book by an author you've read a book by since January 2013, not a new-to-you author (as implied by the statement "Finding new authors can be fun, but sometimes it's nice to just get to know an acquaintance better").

Doesn't this show historical fiction 8 users listed on the main page? Maybe I'm confused as to which is the "main page".

Nope, you've got the right page. Either I'm going blind or Goodreads was wonky that night! Sorry about that..... Your points will show up in the next update. ;-)

Task 30.7 - The Boy in the Striped Pajamas has the genre "childrens" on its main page and is less than 300 pages long. Therefore, it cannot be used for a 30-point task unless specifically allowed by the task creator.

Task 20.7 - The link that I'm missing is the one to YOUR completed task post that shows that you completed option 3 for task 20.2 in the spring challenge. You get this link by right-clicking on the time/date stamp in the upper right corner of the post where you claimed the task and choosing "copy link."

Also, make sure the book you're claiming is linked when you repost.

Thanks, Angela. Your post is fine. The task description provides a link to the tasks themselves and option A (the one you did) does not require you to link to your completed task post from the spring or summer challenge (because people who do option A haven't completed the task before).

Task 20.7 -- The Last Unicorn has the genre Childrens on its main page and is <300 pages long.

Books with the genre "childrens" or "kids" that are between 100 and 299 pages may only be used for 5, 10, and 15 point tasks. Books with the genre “childrens” or "kids" on their main page may ONLY be used for tasks above 15 points IF they are at least 300 pages long or the task description specifically notes their inclusion.

Reminder

When claiming big book tickets, if you read an ebook, audiobook or large type book use the page count for the mass market paperback if one exists. If there is no mass market paperback edition, use the paperback edition and if no paperback is available use the hardcover edition.

It is helpful to include a link to the print edition in your post.

You are responsible for identifying the number of tickets claimed. If you only request one when you may qualify for two or more, you will only be awarded one.
