Hello nice people. :)
This was a great challenge. I am a noob, so please excuse my contingent cluelessness.

What cluelessness? ;) You're at the top of the leaderboard and bested Nikitachi who won the last event. Grats.

Well, just by a whisker. Let`s see how long it will last.

Came into this one a little late as I just found the forums via a Google search for a bucket list challenge but going to try nonetheless.
Playing on console since my pc broke down last year.
Been simming for 17 years now, so I hope I can get a respectable score here.

So, super coincidental that I decided to do this challenge today. I like to have stories behind my sims, and today marks the 20 and 10 year anniversary of my grandfather and grandmother's deaths respectively; they both were robbed of their last year's from Dementia so for this challenge, both of my sims were inspired by them, and what they could've had.
Jeanne got 68 whims and 8 traits
Herbert got 69 whims and 7 traits
For a total of 287 points. Not as bad as I thought I'd do.
This was a fun challenge. I love the quick challenge as I get bored pretty quick.
I wish I would've found this forum sooner, some of the previous challenges looked super fun and since I'm playing on console I can't do the next one  :'(
Also, thanks for the greetings everyone! Looking forward to the next challenge.

All right, that's me done.
Only started yesterday due to work and good weather; must say I'm rather bummed they are already marked for death today... I'm used to playing on long life setting, so I'm afraid I squandered my (well, really their) time a bit - despite the practice round.
For me, like @workingmum8, not cancelling whims was the biggest challenge, and a real pain at times. It was a lot of fun, though!

Whims: 83+80 = 163
Traits: (12+12) x10 = 240
Total 163+240 = 403

In case anyone wondered what happened to agnes7993 at the top of the leaderboard, agnes7993 and Rinkils are the same person, just a forum name change.

If you've never seen it, The Bucket List is a great movie with Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson. I named my two Sims after the movies' lead characters, Edward Cole and Carter Chambers.

Whims -- 165 + 180 = 345
Traits -- 12 + 13 = 25 X 10 = 250

Total -- 354 + 250 = 595

Ugh, I did terrible in this one, I had a game breaking bug in this challenge and spend two days trying to fix it and get my game working again, so I lost some time and had to rush this.  >:(

Rose Twilight earned 20 traits and completed 83 whims

Grayson Twilight earned 19 traits and 85 whims.

That's a total of 558, I think, not great at adding these things so hopefully that's right.

Not at all happy with my results, I could have done better but I've just lost interest in the Sims lately and have been putting this off, so it's kind of my own fault.

For the record I hate the Twilight movies, I gave them that last name because they are both in their twilight years and rose and gray are two of the colours you can see in a sunset.  :)

While I'm glad this one was much shorter than the previous one...I really, really sucked at it. I'm just submitting a score for the overall scorings.
My score:
Jovan Buckley: 57 whims + 7 traits
Kali Goth: 41 whims + 8 traits

Total: 248

Have you considered having a beginner's division?

Never really have. How would that even work? There's one World Ranking with everyone lumped into it. Technically after your first couple events can anyone call themselves a beginner? But, it's a valid question. A brand new player who has never entered a competition going up against the likes of the Lenas and GlazeyLadys -- wow...kind of a daunting task. :) And part of the problem is there have been plenty of brand new players who have never played an event before that end up wiping the competition. They come out guns blazing and clearly know the ins and outs and all the tricks -- they just have never done a forum challenge before.

I'm not really sure, but plenty of competitions have divisions based on skill level. After the first year of participating, the better players would be bumped into a higher division. As for the World Rankings...since they're based on Participation and Wins, I'm not sure there would be much difference unless there is a great discrepancy between the number of entrants in each division.
