Rankings Jan 17-23

Hi everyone. Look! An update, finally! We will try to be more punctual next week.

Week three. If you're still making IDs, congrats for making it so far! If you've had to skip a little time, it's the perfect time to get back into the groove... welcome back ;)

Remember, slow and steady -- this is a marathon, not a race. Take breaks, drink plenty of water, and stand up and stretch periodically. You can do it!

First of all, Total% ... what have we done together, in this short span of time?

61 people have made a total of 18155 IDs!
Over the span of the entire competition, that's 71656 IDs! Fantastic!

2nd @philiptdotcom, 207.2% (1688)
3rd @matthewvosper, 119.5% (794)

And now, the grand reveal... what is Mystery% this week??

I think this will be my last week at the top ... had a few groups of animals I was clearing out the backlogs for, but now I've reached the end of it!

there's always more to ID. always. ;)
try out Unknowns for a little, there's a few hundred thousand of them.

I'm not in the rankings of course, but it is fun to put myself in there. I started the year with 50,847 IDs and last week I only made 62 qualifying IDs, so (50847+62)/50847*100 is 100.1219% which would put me in spot 42, if I had a spot.

So Google helped me.

Yes it's pretty clear you knew what the clue meant! Your numbers for August 26 2020 were even more impressive, but Blue wanted to go with 2019.

Technically, Baklava was born at some point within a few weeks of that date. He's a rescue so I don't know exactly. But I chose August 26th, because that's my birthday too! :)

@myles678 you didn't register for the event during the registration period, so we are not tracking your IDs. You are welcome to identify and to reply to posts, of course :)
