Alphabet Challenge Stats Roundup

By Dave Horobin, 1 month ago
Our first ever Alphabet Challenge ended just over a week ago, and we thought it would be interesting to share some stats from the event.

If you didn't take part, the aim of the event was simple. Using the first letter of an achievement name, each entrant had 26 days to work their way through the English alphabet in alphabetical order. Unlike most of our previous events, everyone who entered could be a winner if they managed to complete all 26 letters in order. Everyone that did manage to complete the challenge was awarded a fancy new badge that now sits proudly on their TA profile.
