If you are participating in the 2020 52 Ancestors and/or 52 Photos challenges, please post here so we can make sure you get the participation badge.

You can also post here if you have reached a 13 in 13, 26 in 26 or 52 in 52 milestone so you can get those badges.

I would like to join the 52Ancestors challenge please
I would like to join 52 Ancestors and 52 photos
I would like to participate but can't work out how to comment on past topics (ie a fresh start)
I just linked two photos to the Professions photo category.  This was my first time participating.  It was difficult to find clear instruction on how to link the photos, but I finally succeeded.

May I add photos to earlier challenges?

Could I please get the participation badge.

My Stevens/Stephens ancestors all came West from Lafollette, Tennessee in 1907 (ish) to Leavenworth/Cashmere Washington. My greatgrandfatherStevens, greatgrandmother (Elizabeth Texas Chapman Stevens) my grandmother Nancy Louise Stevens Haskins (who was 12 at the time) and 12 more of her siblings. The men all came to work on the railroad.
can someone explain what this challenge is?  or provide the link for more info?  i might like to participate if able to.
ok. i think i found what i was looking for.  

i still have time to participate in week 5 challenge too right?  to count for continuous?  what about week 4?  it might be a day late or so now at this point.

I posted this as an answer, but I would really like this idea to be seen. Could we change the wording here? Instead of “Reply to this week’s...,” can we say “Answer this week’s...?”

You can join us any week of the year. Anyone who participates gets the 2020 "52 PHOTOS"badge. There are special achievement badges for those who meet challenge milestones.

To participate:

  1. Reply to this week's 52_PHOTOS G2G post, and...
I posted a little late here, but I would like to get the participation badge. I have posted links to my blogs for each week this year so far.
I am on Week 7 of the 52 Photos contest. How do I get a participation badge?
For my first time to participate, I would like to offer two persons having the same name.  Or almost the same.  One of my first family members to settle in southern Alabama was Stephen Jones, who moved there from a suburb of Atlanta.  In almost the same year (circa 1825) another Stephen Jones moved to southern Alabama from near Atlanta.  This Stephen sometimes included a middle initial T for Thomas. The Stephen without a T moved to Marengo county.  Stephen with a T was a county or so over.  To confuse subsequent genealogists, both Stephens married an Elizabeth.  As a result,  those of us who accepted hints from frequently have the wrong wives, wrong times of birth and death, and wrong names for the children of the Stephen Jones family.  The 1840 census does give both households, but, of course, for that year no children's names were offered.
I am posting for this week's 52 Photo Challenge Week 8, Music and would like the Participation Badge.
I would like to join the 52 Photos Ancestors challenge please.
I tried to add a photo for week 11, I’m not sure if it worked, I haven’t participated before
It is not clear at all how you participate in these challenges.  Do I need to be added to a list?  If so, I would like to join, please.  I have tried previously but it did not seem to work.
I've been asking for the participating badge since February. Not sure what it takes to get one.
Me neither. I've asked several times.

Auriette and Gary, have you posted an Answer below?

Multiple times...
I too have answered in the appropriate location, and have been posting each week... but no participation badge yet.  there seems to be a bit of lag for this project.  the main page isn't update either.  it only shows the first 6 weeks of prompts for this year.  hopefully, when time is available, the rest of us will get the badges.  thanks.
Missy Berryann - I posted an "answer" on February 6. When there was no response, I thought maybe I was supposed to "comment," thus my first "comment" on February 15. I posted  an "answer" again on February 22.

Your post on February 14 helped draw my attention to the fact that there are two ways of responding to a post and that maybe I had picked the wrong way.
Part of my confusion lies in the different links that (to me) mean the EXACT SAME THING. Reply, Comment, Answer are all interchangeable (i.e., synonyms) in the English language. It gets really confusing when I'm asked to Answer and there's no "Answer" button, or I'm asked to Reply and there's no "Reply" button.

Who put this nightmarish system together? There should be ONE button, with ONE name, that should be used ALL the time. I'm a left-brained individual. I like concrete things. This three buttons with three different names and (seemingly) different purposes is really confusing to my left brain.  This is too abstract for me to wrap my mind around.

How can we reign in the insanity?

I am excited to join in the fun of the 52 Ancestors and 52 Photos Challenges for 2020. I have done weeks 1 and 2 thus far and am considering what to do for week 3 now. (I'm a little behind due to some recent 'chaos' at home... our #3 child has unexpectedly returned to the nest for a short time.)
