Hi - I just finished my 52 ancestors challenge (52 contributions in a row - phew!).  I started late in 2019 so tailed over by 2 weeks into this year.  The 2019 page to flag completion is now closed and there isn't one yet for 2020 so what do I do?  I'd like the 2019 badge as almost all my contributions were made that year.  Help much appreciated smiley

Congratulations on your accomplishment! :-)

Did you get a chance to check out the following WikiTree help page for the instructions outlining what's required for this?

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:52_Ancestors

It also has clue like information regarding the project leaders and such whereas you could try messaging one of more of them by either/or posting on the G2G post, PM, their profile, etc...

Just a helpful hint to you... :-)

Good Luck!

Thanks Brian for the helpful link.  I did have a look at it, but the prompt is to go to the challenge page, which has now been closed.  Several people in the same boat as me (finished or finishing soon but after 31 December) have left comments which didn't have a response.  I think the person who runs the challenge is super busy so I didn't want to bother them by a direct message.

By posting here hopefully they or someone else can put up a generic answer that works for everyone in the same situation.

Contact Eowyn and ask her. She runs these challenges. But keep in mind that she is very busy!!

Hi - as per my answer to Brian, I'd hoped there was an answer for me (and the other people who have already left messages on the official page) that didn't involve messaging probably the busiest person on WikiTree smiley

If that's what it takes, I guess I just have to be another person bothering her.

Does anyone have any bright ideas to make this a little less admin heavy for the already extremely busy people who run the challenges?  It's crying out for automation, or at the very least, delegation.

I am sure that new (2020) post will be added in the next days or weeks.  Just keep an eye out for the link(s) in the weekly challenge questions.
Linda, I agree with you. I am waiting for my badge also. Thank you for asking.

Linda, there is a new post for the 2020 challenge.

Post here and list which challenge you're participating in (Ancestors or Photos or both):
