The Insane XP Competition: #1
This competition is now over. Thanks to all the competitors for making it great! Congratulations to IsabelleMay on winning!
Welcome to the first Insane XP Competition!
What is it about?
Good question! Each day, competitors must earn a certain number of XP. If they fail to do so, they are eliminated. The winner will get their name put on the Insane XP Competition hall of fame!
- Every day, competitors are set a specific amount of XP, which they have to earn by the end of the day.
- If competitors do not earn enough XP, they are eliminated.
- Up to 30 competitors can join. You have until midnight UTC+12 on Sunday 27 September to join.
- When you have finished a task tell me. Make sure you include an image of your XP chart as well as the time you completed the task. I will be following you anyway, so you can't cheat:)
- To join, tell me below in the comments section and please specify your timezone(this is important!).
- You cannot begin a task until you are allowed to. If you finish the task earlier, your work will not be counted!
- You are not allowed to use immersion. This will make it fair for people who cannot use it.
- You can start each task at 00:00 UTC your time zone.
- Good luck:)
- Enjoy yourself, and try not to take it too seriously!
(I am going to use UTC+12 as the standard time zone so everyone can have 24 hours to complete the task)
-Earn 1 lingot for each day you last. -Earn 1 lingot for finishing a task first. -The winner will earn 200 lingots! -Second Place will earn 100 lingots! -Third place will earn 50 lingots! -The winner will get their name added to the Insane XP Competition hall of fame! (A link for this will be added at the end of the competition.)

(I'm surprised that the competition has gone on so long. I though it would take less than a week, but I underestimated a few of you!)
FAQ and Suggestions:
If you have any questions, put them in the comments section and I will answer them here! Any good suggestions may be placed here also.
When does the competition end? When there is only one person left! The competition will last less than two weeks guaranteed. That is why I named it the Insane XP competition!
Is there a fee to pay? No, but you can donate lingots if you want to help out:)
Must I do a specific language? You can do any language you like, but you cannot use immersion to get the XP.
I am on mobile, how do I include a picture of my progress? If it is possible, take a screenshot, upload the image to Imgur and then post a link to the image on my stream. If that is not possible, I will be following you so I can check your progress anyway.
How about if there is only one day left in the two weeks, whoever makes the most XP on this day wins the whole contest? Good idea! I doubt it will last more than two weeks, but if it does I will use this suggestion.
When does the competition start? The competition will start on Sunday 4 October. 00:00 at UTC+12 is the first start time. You start when it reaches 00:00 in your timezone.
and that's it! You can donate lingots if you want to help, but it is not necessary. Please don't upvote comments, since I need to know the order in which people join! If you want to do it as a team, I intend on doing this later as a separate event, so join this one now!
Note to all competitors:
Follow this discussion so you can see how much XP you need to get every day!
The start date has also been moved to next Sunday, just to allow more to sign up. (Unless I can get 30 people to join before midnight UTC+12, then the competition will start this Sunday.) Sorry for any inconvenience!
Also, please read the full discussion. It is very important!<h1>If you are unable to take a screenshot and upload it to an image hosting site, please let me know! Make sure you know 100% that you cannot because it is still possible on mobile devices.If you don't say that you cannot take a screenshot, I will take it that you can.</h1>
To make a picture follow these steps:
1: Take a screenshot:
command/shift/4 on mac.
I don't know what it is on PC
2: Convert to a base64 string (it's a long sequence of numbers and letters) and copy it.
3: Use this code:
I can't take a screenshot. I've already tried the PC method given by WinAR6 but it still won't work... :(
I can take a screenshot, but because of parental controls I can't post it. ;(
Someone is using their multiple accounts to down vote lol..I upvoted all of them to try to balance it out :/.
Welcome! You are competitor #1. Once it is midnight in your timezone you can begin the first task!
Thanks, but why did u change the prizes ? it was 200 lingots for the first, 100 for the second and 50 for the third
I wanted to use those amounts for the team edition. It makes it more even then.
I will join!!! This sounds like so much fun! I am in US Eastern Time. I'm definitely in, and I can send the link to some of my friends, so you can get more competitors. ;)
Brilliant! You are competitor #7. Good luck:) Could you specify your time zone too, so that you will be able to have 24 hours for the task.
I don't have a mobile and can't screenshot on my computer. Can I still join???
I'd like to join, please. Time Zone: EST
Are we allowed to do immersion after we have completed our tasks for the day? If this would be too confusing, I'll still join.
I would like to join. :) My time zone is (UTC-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada).
Hey, could I reserve a spot for someone AmandaWhite12? I don't know if they'd like to join yet, because they're away.
Hi ! (GMT + 2:00) for me if I can join but it will be impossible for me to send you a screenshot .. Let me know your agreement ..
Hi! I was actually interested in this competition.. but am now disappointed because all the seats are full. Could you possibly tell me when will you host the next Insane XP contest so that I can always keep an eye for the contest and not miss it the next time?
Hang on!!!!! I'm SO confused! Is day 1 over already? Because it's 9:15 pm where I'm at right now
Well, everybody's in different time zones. The day is not determined by the host's time zone, it is specific to each individual for his own time zone. So day 1 is NOT over for you yet, but it IS over for quite a few people already. Don't worry!
How much did everyone finished at? I did 140 in total :). I did 100 before bed this morning and 40 before work. I'm glad I brought my stylus from my other home or else my fingers would've been feeling quite numb by now from tapping on my phone :/.
188 XP for Day 1, and exactly 350 for Day 2. Today (Day 3 for me) is going to be a nightmare...
I'm on 250 xp right now. I got 100 to go but my mind is french numb.. I'll probably have to switch to my stronger language ;).
Count me in. US central time. But how will I include an image of my progress? I'm on mobile 100%.
Sounds fun! I'm in, US Eastern Time (UTC-4)
Do we start at midnight in our own time zone, or UTC+12? From the original post I thought we would all start together at UTC+12 but in the comments it sounds like that might not be the case. If we all use our own time zone, how will you keep track of who actually finishes first?
the no immersion thing is really going to be problem. sorry not entering!
You could always do the strengthen skills or start another tree or do a reverse tree. Maybe you could later do another xp games with immersion for people like muffin_prime.
Whoa! That's great...so can I check the forum tomorrow (according to my zone)? Thanks a bunch!!
First task complete already. You guys can catch up now. I'll do a bit more when I wake up for work ;).
Congrats to all who passed day three. Sorry I couldn't keep up. Even coffee wasn't good enough to push me pass 70 :/. See you at the finish line!!
550XP is a lofty goal for today and I'm not sure if I'll make it, so don't feel like you're missing out...
