What are the prizes?
All players who meet or exceed the minimum number of required points for the month will earn a Challenge Achievement Medal. The point requirements change every month as we aim to provide a vast assortment of challenges which includes a varying level of difficulty.
Site Event Medals are awarded to the top three finishers on the challenge scoreboard.

B=(bronze win tokens*5/bronze join tokens)
S=(silver win tokens*3/silver join tokens)
G=(gold win tokens*2/gold join tokens)
Discard highest of B,S,G. Average together remaining two.
Four players have qualified thus far: Riverj, Awoodness, rgrjoey001, the warrior65. Testing formula on these.
B = 5*5/10 = 2.5
S = 4*3/10 = 1.2
G = 6*2/11 = 1.1 (approx)
Discard B. Average of S and G = 1.15 (approx)
B = 2*5/10 = 1
S = 5*3/11 = 1.4 (approx)
G = 3*2/5 = 1.2
Discard S. Average of B and G = 1.1
Okay, not even going to bother with the last two. I can see from the first two that we're not even in the right ballpark. Going to send this to BW for recalibration. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

If multiply your calculations by 40 they should match. And we do need to scale the scores up because the event scoring system does not handle fractions. We can do it some other way if you like, but otherwise everyone will be tied on 1 or 2.

There was an economic difference, yes, but that's not the main thing.
The capital-P Puritans, who started the nearby Massachusetts Bay Colony, retained their membership within the Church of England and believed it could be remade as Puritan church. The Mayflower Separatists believed the Church of England was beyond redemption and the only option was severing all ties with it. That's the main distinction.
Until the Uniformity Act of 1662 most Puritans remained within the Church of England and the Separatists were considered a splinter group. With the passage of the Uniformity Act, most Puritan were driven out of the Church and the situation was reversed, with Separating being the norm and staying in being the oddball.
