Ludi, according to the tracking machine you have indeed crafted all the things, and then some Smiley
Unless you have some brownie points project to post, you can take the weekend off to prepare for the next round Wink

Both are beautiful. I would hang either one of them in my daughter's room and design the entire room to match Smiley

Sorry for disappearing for so long, things have been crazy here on so many levels. Things are still crazy, but the tracking is all updated and I got a rocking report for all us nerds and nerdettes.

We have just zoomed past the 300 project mark, with 307 projects completed so far.
The tracking machine started spitting cogs again, a symptom of multiple research projects posted by the same player. Ludi and pishaw13 have been doing overtime in their labs, it seems, and have already completed 2 research projects each.
The most popular prompt (that can still be crafted) is Take a Hike, with 18 projects (the same number as the geeky game of Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock).
An unusual occurrence here in the games is a neglected prompt, the Perseid Meteor Shower prompt has not had any submissions yet.
Leading the way in the projects count is pishaw13 with 26 projects completed, followed by calliemae with 24 and Ludi with 22.

Here's our current chart (I might have missed a few bonus points, I'll run the bonus filter on the machine towards the end of the round):


Off to polish the knobs on the tracking machine, and maybe actually complete a project.

This might be the push I need to actually try something from my mile long bookmarks list. And as a bonus, we get to eat it. So, as long as the recipe isn't horrible, we all win Smiley

I knew it was a bad idea to leave the lab just at the end of the month. With all the last minute posts for June's prompts and all the excitement about the new prompts. It took me almost 2 weeks to clean up the mess of cogs and springs that the tracking machine spewed. Had to bribe the minions with frozen banana treats to calm them down.
Once everything was clear, I managed to get the machine to give me a report. So here's what we got:

We are currently up to 193 projects, from 22 active players.
As always, there is not one single prompt that hasn't gotten at least a bit of attention.
Thea leading prompts are currently June's Battle and Flash Mob, with 18 and 17 projects.
I don't remember seeing a battle or mob ever leading in the project count, but who can resist a good game of Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock.
The most prolific players so far this round are calliemae and wincentvanbuck, with 15 projects each, followed by Ludi and sammylouise40, with 14 each. They might run out of prompts before hitting August.
We've seen a lot of food related projects, maybe due to the new Events feature of the games. Reading the posts in the middle of the night has become dangerous (night time kitchen raids usually don't end in salad).

and here are the totals so far:

Keep up the awesome crafting, everyone. The games are so much fun to follow (now if I only finish something to actually post...).
Stay safe, where ever you are Smiley

Do a lizard with Spock ears, just to confuse everyone Smiley

craftADDchick - I just know the power of books, it's only some sort of GPS or timer in my head that saves me from missing my station (or the fact that the train is arriving when I wait for it) when I'm reading.

At 91 projects and 3 weeks into the round, I think it's high time to get a report out there.
So, have at it:

As mentioned about, we got 91 projects already submitted (might be more by the time this is posted).
We have 18 active players. and all teams are represented.
I was a bit worried that Team Textbook might have gotten locked in the library or something, but I guess they were just busy piling up the goods to post, as last week Smeddley and BadWolf314 swooped in and posted a total of 12 projects.
Looks like Team Fandom is mostly busy being adoring fans, as we've only seen projects from pishaw13 so far, but I'm sure that by the end of the month we'll have more players showing up.
I wonder what calliemae will do for the rest of the month, as she's out of prompts for this month (and has the badges to prove it too).


I'm sending a link to the tracking sheet to all team captains, if anyone else wants a link, just let me know.
And if there is any interesting random statistic you're just dying to know, post a comment in the thread. I'll throw some numbers in the tracking machine and see what comes out (I hope it won't be purple smoke).

Spring Nerd Battles 2014 Final Roundup

Final report for the spring round!

We had 24 active players who submitted a total of 334 projects!
(that's 68 more projects than last round)

The uber-crafter award of this season goes to LovelyMiss who completed all 27 prompts, including brownie points and a research project.
she is followed closely by BadWolf314, with 26 completed prompts, meaning everything but brownie points.
Third in the number of prompts is crazyda79, with 25, which is all the prompts, excluding brownie points and research.
bunny1kenobi and Smeddley also contributed many projects, with 24 each.

The most crafted prompts were Friendship is Magic and Luck of the Irish, with 20 projects each, showing we might all just be a bunch of carebears Smiley
The next in line are Idioms and You're the best around, at 18 each.

There is not one single prompt that didn't get some attention (but you already know that if you've been following along, since we have players who completed all the prompts).
We have 4 completed research projects, half of which were completed by Ludi.

March battle - Color VS. Black and White - color won 10 to 6.
April battle - Regular Books VS. Comic Books - Regular Books won 12 to 2.
May battle - Coffee VS. Tea - it's a tie, with 3 points each.

So, this makes us people who like lots of color, but prefer the black on white of a regular book, and any warm drink that comes in a mug (so we can put it on a mug rug?).

Here's a rundown of the prompts:

- Friendship is Magin20
- Luck of the Irish20
- Idioms18
- You're the best around18
- March flash mob17
- Clone Wars17
- March Battle16
- March Sighting16

The machine is being upgraded to withstand the summer heat (and we're adding a sunroof and ice-cream dispenser to it). Let me know if you want a link to the tracking sheet (wrote tracking sheep, wonder what that is). Team captains - this might be useful for you , but anyone is welcome to it if they want.

Thank you, LovelyMiss, for explaining all the new stuff, in a way that my half asleep brain understands Smiley
