Hmmm but the summary guide is not saying that at the moment though... I've been very slow at writing any guide this month, due to unforeseen additional thesis workload. Darn.

Quoting Herr Bert

If I count correctly, we have just broken the 15 million mark.

uhmm .... donĀ“t let me handle your tax return but almost there.

Lol... but we're not far from it! Currently:
Total Characters : 14,923,811

The 15 million mark has been reached!

It's not yet shown on the statistics page as it's updated only once daily, but when viewing an article you can see the mark has been reached at the right!

Well, I guess it's time for the 16 million mark next week

May I put through a very bold request? Considering the serendipity of Chinese New Year meeting Valentine's Day on 14 Feb this year, can we spread the love a bit more and therefore extending the challenge final date to the end of March? Pretty please? ;)

You brought it very nicely and diplomatically there Lil;)

I would say: extend it or I'll do nothing;)

I have been to rude I guess.
Or would silence mean yes? No news is good news

Now, to all people who said they would definately going to contribute: get out of your daily pattern or lazy chair and write! Especially those native-English speakers: come one, you can't tell me you don't have like 30 minutes of time a day. Maybe not everyday...but like never in months on a row?

We all give money to Haiti, but something as easy as writing for hippo rollers to be of use in everyday's life for people in Africa is not possible? And that's going directly to them: the money for Haiti will stick to bureaucrats!!!!

20 million is still possible

You've frightened the admins with your threat?

And yes, come on everyone, let's write a bit more. I've been remissed but I'm back again, sort of, and trying to do little bits here and there. Besides, remember, Utrecht himself offered to chip in an extra hippo roller and he is currently working hard in adding the character counts, so he really really wants to give that hippo roller. Let's help him ;)

LOL, yeah, forgot about that incentive: 20 million charachters means ripping off Utrecht for 100 dollar!
