Not sure if you're an admin from Seti.Germany, if so, a personal thanks for the badge generator which I've used a number of times. Either case, welcome to TPU forum :)

I think this would be a nice challenge to participate in, will PM the captain to see if he wants to join us up.

First, thanks for for signing up for the challenge. I didn't create the badge-generator, but i'll "forward" your appreciation :)

A preview to the challenge:
According to your RAC you might be around the top 3-teams (we have Team-China, The L'Allicance Francophone already in). It's not clear if least year's winner "2ch" joins this year. Once the challenge has started, you can watch the hourly-updated statistics *here*

Anyway: Have fun :)
