Just wondering how much djdolls would have collected until now :-P

@admin , How will we know about the 5 randomly selected participants for the Random Laddus prize category?

(27 May '17, 14:36)

If i am not wrong, the "goodies" are now replaced by laddus.

(27 May '17, 16:33)

Do we get response on reporting a bug whether the bug is inconsistent or was invalid ?

 0 @admin,@vijju123 i fell just top 3 school students in long challenge div 2 is low, i think top 5 might be better due to no of school students in div 2 is much higher when compared no of school students in div 1. just a suggestion(atleast for indian school students) answered 02 Mar, 22:50 63●6 accept rate: 0% The main incentive of this is to discourage Div1 school students from purposely falling to Div2 for prizes. I will forward it to see if numbers can be adjusted. (02 Mar, 23:04) Ok , still what are people going to do with 100 laddus when u get 300 laddus in div 1 and u re performance improves.i Guess those who do that are madY (03 Mar, 15:00)
