Remember to check the guidelines for each challenge - for some of them you need to follow their blog (but you probably already do, so that you don't miss anything!) or leave a comment. We don't have room to tell you more than the basics here!

You are invited to join the team here, managing one day takes at most an hour to update the list. You will be joining a very friendly international team. To find out more why not check out Join the Team page. We really urgently need more team members at the moment. if you find our lists helpful, please do consider giving a little time each week to help us to keep them running efficiently so that you and others like you can continue to benefit from them.
