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 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 have been participating since spring of 19,  Requesting the 2020 badge for 52 ancestors.  Next question, I am about to hit my 39th week.  My 52 weeks will be sometime in April. Should I request that when I have it, or does everything go back to zero on Jan 1?  Thank you!

I'm participating in the 52 ancestors in 52 weeks. I don't know how many I've added. I've been a member of the group for almost a week. I've probably added thirty-forty people, and some photos. I plan on doing more detailed bios (and provide additional resources on the first handful of entries I made).
