I assume you are hinting to the timer in the RC questions posted for the project, Timer is not available in competition mode and we are hopeful to bring it in within a few days.

Is a prize awarded for every RC passage, or does one need to provide answers for 5+ passages?

For instance, I posted a response to RC1 today and answered all six questions. Do I need to do four more passages or am I done?

Hello there

No you are not done yet, you should post explanations of at least 5 or 5+ RCs to be considered for the prize.

Do I need to do four more passages

Yes.

Good luck

There is no special arrangements to get anyone included into, you just need to participate, post detailed explanations of the questions and you might be the winner.

Ahh, it might be a good suggestion for future but at the moment i think we can have a little discussion on each question's thread. Depending on the numbers of members i can make a separate chat room for discussion if we need it. Right now i am going to release the OAs of yesterday's posted RCs.

Thanks

Sure, it would be great if you could post the timings for the chat discussion or may be get a vote from ppl willing to participate in discussion so that you have a tentative count for the same and decide.
