Roman numeraling

Postby Robert K S » Mon Jun 22, 2015 6:44 am

April 14, 2015 was numbered CDLVII (457).
April 21, 2015 was numbered CDLVII (457).
April 28, 2015 was numbered CDLVIII (458).
May 5, 2015 was numbered CDLIX (459).
May 12, 2015 was numbered CDLX (460).
May 19, 2015 was numbered CDLXI (461).
May 26, 2015 was numbered CDLXIII (463).

So I'm guessing that April 21 through May 19 were all misnumbered, and May 26 was the correction?

Yes, you are correct! This confused a lot of people as to when the rounds started and ended, since 459 was really 460 and so on. I have also been about a week behind with updating the scoreboard (just uploaded last week's scores.)

Just out of curiosity, how is the scoring coming along? The Scoreboard hasn't been updated (that I can find) for weeks!

I'm only a week behind - working on 469 right now and 470 is due Monday. viewtopic.php?f=3&t=15209

Yup, I screwed up the Roman numerals. Can't remember how I caught it, but I felt pretty dumb when I realized...
