Perhaps this seasonal challenge was a bit misguided and certainly not the best idea MRA ever had, but then again...
I disagree that it was a bad idea. Many, if not all of the challenges were aimed at improving the knowledge of users of the MRA RoutePlanner. A lot of the questions often asked in this forum we’re catered for within the challenges. Maybe the timing wasn’t quite right, as Timo pointed out, at the time of launch we were coming out of lockdown and I think a lot of people were understandably keen to get away from their desks and to go out and explore again. I also think that the marketing side of the 2022 Season Challenge launch could have put a bit more emphasis on what the aims of the Season Challenge were, i.e. a fun way to learn.
I may be a little biased here, because it was me that set the challenges but putting that to one side, I’m still a firm believer in making learning fun. And I hope to be involved in any future community led challenges.
I do however agree that arrogance played no role in the MRA 2022 Season Challenge and lessons have already been learned.
