The first 30-day challenge: retrospective 10 months ago

I want to "second" what Jedrzej Pelka said. I couldn't say it any better. It looks like this new contest might eliminate some of the potential "cheating" problems that were in the first contest. I also know I would have gotten a lot more points if I had more quickly gotten my "contest focus" instead of tending to keep editing like I usually do (adding things in the areas I'm working on streets that count for fewer points or even no points at all).

It also isn't 100% clear to me how you got so many points so quickly, especially when your time is so limited by a full-time job and girlfriend. I don't have a gf or even a part-time job right now, so I had plenty of time to do edits in the contest. I have to ask about that, bdiscoe. Other than using scripts, which was forbidden according to the contest rules, how could you produce so much in so little time? Sure, keyboard shortcuts would help, but still...that doesn't seem like it would be enough.
