Ha! The most widely-loved conundrum: should I or shouldn't I?!

General query... 28 made it over the line yet only 22 are mentioned..

I submitted a poem with the wrong date and sorted within 24hours of posting (thanks Summerian75 and Josh for the catch) broke the rules, fair play. Otherwise, a little nudge as to where I went wrong would be appreciated..

Good job to all! It's no small feat and (for me at least) writing daily irrespective of what it is about is a good grounding and medicine.  Hope others also find this!

Be safe all and see you around the underground!

I noticed this too and assume it's an oversight that will be corrected, as it's pretty obvious that it says 28 but only lists 22. I had no missteps that I'm aware of. I don't really need the recognition (or the medal, which I haven't received yet) but if I didn't actually complete the task, I'd like to know. Right now I'm just assuming my prize has been lost in the mail.... 🤷‍♀️

Hi, guys! I'll double check with Webmiss and see what's happening. She handles the backend of this. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Okay guys! this is my error! Apparently, the original list was truncated or something. Hell, who knows what I did ( or apparently didn't do )? Your names are everywhere else on this board.

I've just gone through the whole thing with a fine-tooth comb and submitted the omitted names to Webmiss. Please don't ever hesitate in reaching out to me immediately if something is ever amiss with this Challenge! Don't wait for someone else to say something!

Thanks, A! Knew you'd get it sorted. 😊
I have such trust in the diligence of the NaPo Team that my brain hadn't even progressed past the "huh...weird..." stage yet! 🤣

"Truncated" ... this gives me the lead-in I was looking for.
Whilst everyone else was busy with NaPo during April, I was busy trying to put up my new 12.25m double-truncated 6-V geodesic dome structure for our new greenhouse.
I failed the first time round two weeks back as I could not get the last 10% to join up at the top. Took nearly all of it to pieces. Borrowed a proper laser-level, reset it and hey presto, completed it yesterday - and took a couple of pics today.

Here's the view south ...

... and here's the view back up to the house ...

... with the beginnings of our new find-something-to-eat-all-year-round forest garden, now planted with 14 beds and not quite visible a circle of special citrus trees to give us fruit all year round too.

Now there is just the small matter of making 200+ triangular windows ...

But wait a minute... you also did NaPo on TOP of all that?! Geez, I feel like quite the underachiever now!
Wow, it's really impressive. Amazing work. 👏👏😊

Thank you for your enthusiasm.  Well ... I cut up and prepared the metal in Jan/Feb, dug the leveling trench in March (competing with the rain), and spent most of April fiddling with 750 Nuts & bolts to get it right. I tend to write either late at night or early in the morning - ie: outside the work-day. I'm surprised I was never inspired to write a villanelle on nuts & bolts ... but come to think of it, I've maybe just got an opening line pop into my head -- "The journey of a thousand bolts starts with a single nut"

Thank you. It's not the first geodesic greenhouse I've built but it is the most complicated, and the biggest so far.
