That sounds easy, but my friend last year said that it was really, really hard. maybe he just didn't know how to... do somthing... :)

it really depends on how good you are on a computer... if your friend barely knows how to turn it on, then yes, it will be hard. But if youre a computer geek (like me :arrow: :geek: ), then it will be easier.

I think it depends on the state. Personally, I found it very easy- my partner and I got a first place without practicing once. However, if you're not tech-savvy or you're not used to the OS, it can be pretty difficult.

Do you get extra points for completing it quickly? I'm planning on doing this with one of my friends, and we're both pretty good with computers, so would it help to be able to work fast?

Also, what exactly should you put on the website that you make? Does anyone have any examples?

I don't think you get bonus points unless they changed the rules

I would put just useful links that you find on the site. Like data tables, locations of various items and statistics links

Well, you don't get any extra points, but it does help if you can work quickly because then you have more time to check over your answers, make the graph look "professional", make sure all the links work, etc. But if you've already done that and are just sitting there bored, feel free to leave early. (Although, be warned, people stare at you if you do leave early. ;) )
