I’m afraid there’s a
humanelf factor to take account of – so you have to wait until one of us appears!12 Oct 17 at 2:42 pm #30662AnonymousInactive
when deciphering, does it matter if we normalise roman numerals?12 Oct 17 at 2:44 pm #30666AnonymousInactive
You should leave them as they are – since they are letters, they will be included in the solution that your submission is compared to.12 Oct 17 at 3:56 pm #30668AnonymousInactive
Is it just me, or is the countdown on the front page slow by an hour? It is reading that there is an hour and 13 minutes to go until Challenge 2, when the time is clearly 2:47 and the next challenge is uploaded at 3pm. Has there been a change in the schedule or have I misunderstood something?12 Oct 17 at 4:55 pm #30701AnonymousInactive
Is there any way I can remove a member on my team? He joined twice with two accounts.12 Oct 17 at 4:57 pm #30731AnonymousInactive
Team members can only remove themselves, I’m afraid – so he needs to leave the team on the account he doesn’t want to use.12 Oct 17 at 5:07 pm #30738AnonymousInactive
Whoops, there is a timezone issue that we missed! (Actually we noticed this for Challenge 1 and finessed it by putting the “wrong” time in, but forgot to do that this time. Apologies for confusion, but the time bands for points are still wide and welcoming, so hopefully no-one was adversely affected. Thanks for pointing it out,

I can’t submit an answer for part A, it just takes me to that I’m Not A Robot page thing.13 Oct 17 at 12:32 am #30828AnonymousInactive
I am having trouble reading the old posts on the “Stay Up to Date” page. I click on “Load More” at the bottom, which works, but then when I click on “…Read” for the post titled “Welcome (back) to the XIVth National Cipher Challenge”, it jumps me back to the top of the page, and when I scroll down, I still can’t read the post. (By the way, is this the XIVth or XVIth challenge?)13 Oct 17 at 12:43 am #30848AnonymousInactive
I am having the same problem on the ‘stay up to date’ page. I will get someone to look into this. Also, you are right – it is the 16th challenge, so XVI – good spot.13 Oct 17 at 2:01 pm #30904AnonymousInactive
All seems to be running fine now 🙂13 Oct 17 at 3:14 pm #30959AnonymousInactive
One of our submitted deciphers for challenge 1b contained mistakes that were pointed out in previous submissions, but got 100%? it was also not identical to the master answers, ignoring punctuation and spacing etc. is this a bug? or is there a tolerance for 100%?13 Oct 17 at 3:16 pm #30975AnonymousInactive
@aliman Thee is not a tolerance for 100%, but your best solution is what is taken. I am assuming you submitted multiple answers, one of which was completely correct. If that is not the case then please let us know as this would then be a bug which needs fixing.16 Oct 17 at 2:17 pm #31147AnonymousInactive
we submitted a correct answer, only to find that it was not correct!-Bug
we had to re-submit the identical solution to get 100%
please resolve this so that our certificates show correctly
if any mods want proof, I can provide evidence.
