The government of Japan maintains a lit of 100 rice terraces (on the side of mountains so they form a nice shelf like appearance) and we’ve included them as bronze goals with 5 points!

Japanese Support Added

Posted on October 15th, 2017

This interface now has been released in Japanese. All the menu items and help descriptions have been added in Japanese. To switch languages, click the link at the bottom of the screen to see the same page in a different language.

The Japanese verison can be accessed from: http://jp.sporra.net

Over time, if there is the demand, bilingual challenge names will also be added.

Route Point Calculation Change

Posted on October 10th, 2017

We’ve updated the way we calculate points for routes.

Previously, routes were an all-or-nothing calculation. Points where only receieved if the route was 100% ridden. Under the new system, the first 75% of the points are given proportionally to the distance ridden and the last 25% are given upon completion of the route.

The update has been released and users’ points have been reflected accordingly. As a result of this change no users’ points will decrease and should only increase (as previously no credit was received for partial completions)
