VashtaNeurotic
Sometimes when I'm thinking of a track to submit, I think to myself "okay I could submit X, but I know a lot of people won't care for it, there's no point in wasting their time and mine". Glad to see [CaptainMeme] isn't burdened by such thoughts.

CHALLENGE SIX


This challenge is called Alphabet. You’ll be given fifteen questions, each with a set of letters. This will be the upper case alphabet in order but with some letters missing. Those letters you will need to unscramble in order to spell a word.

For example, if you were given BDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSUVWXYZ, the letters A, C, T are missing. Therefore if you submit “ACT” or “CAT” you would get a point, either is technically correct. Your submission must be a word according to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, things that aren’t words will not count. Additionally, abbreviations like “CTA” are not acceptable. Most of the alphabets will have one answer, but some will have multiple.

1. You are allowed to use a dictionary, pen, paper & computer notepad while you are doing the challenge. All other resources including anagram solvers are strictly prohibited while doing the challenge, but they can be used before you start.

2. Your final score will be out of 15. The two players with the lowest scores will be up for elimination. If there is a tie, then the slowest person to get that score will be up for elimination. Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary will be used to verify whether or not a submission is really a word.

3. When you are ready you will submit “Starting”. If you accidentally click out of it, you can submit “starting” again. However, when you are ready to submit “finishing” you will only get one time to submit “finish” and whatever you submit will be final.

4. You will have a 1 hour max out time. Any guesses submitted after 1 hour will not count.

5. You will have until tomorrow at 9pm EST, in (expired on 2022-01-27 21:00:00) to complete this challenge.

6. You may discuss the challenge with other players prior to starting, but once you have started the challenge you are prohibited from discussing it until after results are announced.

When you are ready to begin, you will click this link.

We will do our best to be able to answer questions but cannot guarantee we will be around when you start this challenge, so be sure to get all of your questions answered before you begin :)
