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.

Please check your totals - I show 1 30 point task and 1 15 point task, for a total of 45.

It doesn't appear that this name is on the Readerboard list. In order to keep our records straight and to be sure that posts are credited to the right person, all SRC participants need to sign up for a readerboard name in the Readerboard Names thread. Please post in that thread so that you can be added to the Readerboard, then repost your task after that is done.

New participants in the challenge often find it helpful to read Getting Started and The Seasonal Reading Challenge Explained.

Thanks, Sandy. I swear, I really do know how to add...just not on the first ..."


LOL! I am severely math impaired - I would be lost without my spreadsheet to do the adding for me!

All tasks must be posted in numerical order, lowest to highest. This is necessary to try to streamline the record keeping procedures (our spreadsheets go left to right, lowest to highest). See the first post in the completed tasks thread and the Posting Requirements.

Please repost your tasks.

Ransom Riggs is not a Goodreads author and illustrators are not eligible for Goodreads author tickets. Please decrease your GRA tally by 1.

I assume you are meaning to post for task 30.7, not 20.7! That's how I have entered it, no need to repost unless I'm missing something here.

I notice that my Readerboard score is listed as 30. I believe it should be 70. On December 7th in Post 103 I recorded having completed Tasks 5.1, 10.6, and 25.5. There's no message in this thread about there being a problem with the posting. Could you please check on it for me? Thanks!

Early elementary school books are not accepted for SRC points. Littles And Their Amazing New Friend appears to be directed to 2d-3d graders and cannot be used to claim SRC points.

Oh, no! So sorry, Sandy! I was aware of this rule, but probably so focused on getting it right that something had to go wrong....

I know how that goes! I still read and reread my own completed task posts before clicking on "post"!

Kathy G. | 2073 comments I thought since it was a chapter book it qualified.
It's not mostly pictures. Do the Magic Tree House books work? Just curious. This one is similar in length and vocab.

Thanks

no, magic tree house books do not work either. The intended audience should be over 9.

Please include the task number in the body of your completed task posting, rather than hiding it with a spoiler tag.

I like that "moderator" tag.
Is that new to Goodreads???

Please repost with the links. They appear to be working fine now, and the task of checking books to moderate this challenge is unworkable without links to quickly move between the completed task postings and the links.

Task 20.4, option 2, requires that the title have 3 words, with one syllable each. P.S. I Love You has 4 words, since the "PS" counts as a word.


message 22: by Kirsty (new)

Kirsty | 89 comments The challenge does not state that the book has to be 3 words only


message 23: by Kirsty (new)

Kirsty | 89 comments Although i feel this should have been made clearer in the task description, i will repost the book to count towards task 20.5

"Books about books" is not listed as a main page genre for A Discovery of Witches. If you received verification for this genre and the genre has since "fallen off the page," please repost including a link to the verification post.

Jayme (jaymetheghostreader) | 3000 comments Sandy, I think I got overlooked on the readerboard. I posted a task on post 217, page 5. It never made the readerboard and it doesn't show any problems in this thread. I made sure to add my readerboard name. There is a Jayme VA with 5 points but that is not me.

something weird is going on - my spreadsheet shows you with the right # of points, but for some reason it didn't get into the list. I'll figure out what's wrong with the spreadsheet and get it fixed - but, rest assured, I do have your points there, as well as the 15 points you posted later.

Please do not repost the other tasks in this post - they have already been recorded.

Also, please correct your own records - your total is 40 points without 20.2, 60 after you repost that one.

Task 10.8 from the fall challenge requires you to "explain briefly how your book fits the task requirement." Please repost with the required information.

I seem to be missing a Goodreads Author ticket on the Readerboard thru #400. It shows 1, but I show 2.

Neil Gaiman Post #17
Veronica Roth Post #129

Hi, Sue. The 1 GRA ticket shown on the Readerboard was for Bette Lee Crosby (post 248). In post #92, you never mentioned that Stephen G. Mitchell is a Goodreads Author you just listed him as ***Stephen G. Mitchell. The asterisks don't mean anything to me.... ;-)

I've gone back and added him to your totals so it should be correct in the next update.
