RUL Challenges Season 1 – 2/17/14 : Announcement Time!

It’s time again for a new set of challenges – but firstly, an announcement!

As the vigilant among you will have noticed, this is now Season 1 of the RUL Challenges. This means that the challenges will now be split into 4 seasons per year!

Season 1 will include all past challenge sets to date, with the final set being posted on March 17th. The results of Season 1, along with the first set of challenges for Season 2, will be posted two weeks later, on March 31st. The subsequent seasons will span from April – June, July – September and October – December respectively.

Additionally, we are introducing a Site Award for the RUL Challenges! At the end of each Season, those who are #1 on the leaderboard will be given a Site Award for their hard work! There may also be the possibility of other prizes to be awarded as well, but you’ll hear more on that if/when it is finalised.



1. When you have completed the challenges, post in the connected forum thread (linked at the bottom of this post).

2. Challenge entries close when the post for the next set of challenges has been released.

3. Evidence must be provided with every challenge completion. Evidence recommendations will be provided with each challenge, any other form of evidence must show any specifics appropriate for the challenge.

4. If an evidence submission is not suitable, you will be contacted via PM. If no changes are made, or no replies are received by the time the relevant challenges are closed, that particular challenge will be treated as incomplete.

[Note: The requirement of evidence is not intended to show a lack of trust in anyone, it is purely a formality to ensure the challenges are fair for all]


Now, without further ado, here are the results from the last challenges!
