Official Monthly Challenge for October 2014
Brought to you by DoomYoshi and the Community TeamCLICK HERE TO JOIN GAMES
Welcome to the Second Eclipse month of 2014.
The 8th of October gives a nice treat with a lunar eclipse for the hemisphere centered on the Pacific Ocean.
Our challenge, however, focuses on the solar eclipse of October 23rd:
The shadow is where the partial eclipse can be seen. Since the majority of the eclipse can be seen from the Arctic, and less of the eclipse is visible from Greenland, full points will be given to Arctic games
, while only partial points will be given to Greenland games.
Points of Reflection:
1)The Challenges have totally changed this year. This challenge was designed in February! As such, it has some peculiar scoring rules.
2)The way I have determined the challenge level. There is a poll
here. Since I have 25 votes now, I randomize a # between 1-25. Since I got a 14, I counted up from the bottom and that put me in the 40% range. I will consult that poll for every challenge that uses the Split Score System. You can still vote, as you vote, you determine the future!NO SIGN-UPS REQUIRED - Everyone is eligible!
