This high number is going to make next years' competition much more difficult.

Thanks, Todd

I suggest we make the 2021 predictions before the close of January 2021, with a 10 per cent adjustment (up or down) possible before December 1, 2021, and with the proviso that the closest to identifying the July monthly total be the tie-breaker in the case of tie on December 31, 2021.

EDIT: Further rules and clarifications to follow.

As an Austria, who grew up with the advantages of the heritage of Habsburg boureaucrazy, i fully endorse your efforts and want to request some additional regulations for the sake of clearness, administration powers and time needed to learn about them.

So you're saying that the earliest annual contest can't start until 2024?

Thanks, Todd
