Hello all - 

I joined the Yakezie Challenge in 2011. Dropped my Alexa at Thriftability.com, but didn't meet the challenge. Re-posted my intent to complete the challenge, but lost rank (Alexa) due to injury. I have been away for a bit and am trying (desperately) to get all the balls back in the air. 

 

Now I am about to re-join/re-declare (for the 3rd time) my intent to complete the challenge. Here's what I am driving myself crazy trying to figure out:

1. I see Thriftability listed on the challenger spreadsheet, and in the Member column, it lists me as 'Gamma', but nothing in the Yakezie class name. Not sure why – any input here?

2. Following the injury that tore me away from the blog, I came back at about 1.7 Alexa. Over the past month I have dropped that to 468k. Do I re-join the challenge at 1.7 or 468k?

 

3. I am unable to comment in the main page at Yakezie.com – although I do have a log-in and it works… the system just won't allow me to comment as anything but a guest, and my profile/icon doesn't show up. Thoughts?

 

I appreciate your help – Lisa

I would count your Alexa as whatever it is when you redeclare. If you put your post up today and you're at 468k today, that's what I would use as a starting point.

I fixed your info in the spreadsheet – since anyone can edit, sometimes the info is a little wonky. I changed your member status to "challenger" and removed the class entirely – that will be determined by which class is being admitted when you complete the challenge.

When you comment on the main site, sometimes it takes several minutes for your comments to post. When I comment, it just sits there for awhile and does nothing, making it look like the comment didn't go through. If I wait long enough, it will usually refresh and show my comment. I'm not sure if that's what's happening for you or not, but thought I'd throw that out there just in case. 

Hope that helps!

I do not mean to piggy back on this post, but I wanted to reenter the challenge for 2013.  Where can I find the challenger thread, to make the annoucement.  Thanks  Lorillia Laugh
