Anyone posting in this topic can participate if they wish. There are no other posting requirements.
So we just play the regular monthly and are considered automatically in?
Exactly. But in addition to the regular leaderboard you will also compete against the other people posting here.
Webman, thanks for answering my questions. As to why not playing all 5, sometimes life, even while self isolating, intervenes.

Just to be clear, you used to have to play 5 sessions each day in the monthly contest or you would lose them. If you missed a day, or couldn't get all 5 in, then it hurt your chances severely.

We changed that quite a while ago so that you can "make up" sessions any time during the month and it has worked out much better.

Each day, your available sessions still increase by 5 for the same total sessions throughout the month.

So if you were only able to play 3 sessions on the first of the month, today on the 2nd you would have played 3/10 available sessions and you could play the other seven.

That is cumulative throughout the entire month. Obviously you don't want to get too far behind, or it could take a while to play them all out. But on busy days or if you forget, you can make it up later.

And since someone will probably ask, no... you can't play tomorrow's sessions early. :)

That was an absolutely HUGE improvement. Before that, if you could see on your schedule for the month that you would likely miss a few days, you (or, at least I), wouldn't bother with it.

Thanks Webman. So if I stay up late tonight, I can play tomorrow's sessions beginning after midnight MST/PDT. That would be playing them early. ;)
