Code of Honor
Spreadsheet Gladiator Challenge #2
Spreadsheet Gladiators adhere to the highest standards of competition. The following are the rules and regulations for the most creative spreadsheet contest of all time.
- Duration – The contest will launch on November 10 and run for about 4 weeks. Those with the five fastest times will compete in a livestream competition featuring a new escape room.
- Scoreboard – A real-time scoreboard will keep track of all the complete escape room times. When a participant completes the escape room, his or her time will be ranked against the other completion times. However, only the top twenty times will be shown on the scoreboard.
- Livestream – Livestream participants will have 45 minutes to complete the new escape room. The livestream ends once three participants complete the new escape room. If only zero, one, or two participants complete the room in this timeframe, a judge assigned by Coefficient will assess who is “farthest along” and award the prize slots that have not yet been filled.
- Outside Help – Participants must complete the escape room on their own, without live human assistance. However, participants can references resources not directly related to the escape room. This includes how-to articles about Google Sheets functions, Google search, and any other general educational materials. Participants cannot reference any resources pertaining to the escape room itself including walkthroughs of the escape room, video guides, collaborative forums, and so on.
- Cheating – Any participant who violates the integrity of the game will be eliminated from the competition. The definition of “violated” is interpreted by the Coefficient team, and all decisions on infractions are final. Infractions include, but are not limited to, consulting escape room walkthroughs, tinkering with the function of the escape room, playing multiple times, sharing solutions, and manipulating data.
