    MY PREVIOUS email was probably fake because I don’t like to give here and there my email address years after years !

    Pretty complicate : Rule Change starting #633

    We have had a large number of correct answers (17 in the last 2 games) coming from non-verifiable e-mail addresses. These answers appear to be coming to us via anonymizing services such as TOR and/or VPNs, and judging from the structure of the answers and the fact that a large number of them seem to be from people with famous names, we strongly suspect they are coming from the same person or small group of persons. Why they are doing this is beyond us — there doesn’t appear to be any financial gain to be had from this, it just appears to be someone having their idea of “fun”.

    This is a problem because we have had so many suspect answers that it is diluting the hard work that you wonderful people put in.

    In an effort to combat this, we are instituting a slight rule change effective immediately. This change may or may not make a difference, but we feel we owe it to our regular players to at least try to combat this stuff.

    So, here we go:

    For a player to be recognized in the reveal, leaderboard or past winners page, they will need to provide a verifiable e-mail address and respond to a verification e-mail following their first contest entry following this post with the following exception:
    Anyone who has played prior to Contest #630 and is in our database of players prior to Contest #630 will be considered to be verified already.

    The Cerro Prieto Geothermal Power Station is a complex of geothermal power stations in Baja California, Mexico. It is the world’s largest complex of geothermal power stations in terms of overall size and the second-largest in terms of energy output,[1] with an installed capacity of 820 MW.[2][3] The facility is located just south of Mexicali and consists of five individual units, named CP1 through CP5.

    Cerro Prieto I

    The CP1 powerhouse (32°24′43″N 115°14′41″W) has a total installed capacity of 180 MW,[4] generated by four units of 37.5 MW and one unit of 30 MW. Units 1 and 2 of this powerhouse was commissioned between 1973, followed by 3 and 4 in 1981.[5]
    Cerro Prieto II

    The CP2 powerhouse (32°23′27″N 115°13′33″W) has a total installed capacity of 220 MW,[4] generated by two 110 MW units which were commissioned in 1982.[5]
    Cerro Prieto III

    The CP3 powerhouse (32°23′52″N 115°14′18″W) has a total installed capacity of 220 MW,[4] generated by two identical units as CP2, measuring 110 MW. This powerhouse was commissioned in 1983, a year after the commissioning of CP2.[5]
    Cerro Prieto IV

    The CP4 station (32°24′15″N 115°12′43″W) commenced operations in July 2000, and consists of four turbines, each with a capacity of 25 MW.[3][4][5][6]
    Cerro Prieto V

    The CP5 station (32°24′54″N 115°15′08″W) is the newest powerhouse of the Cerro Prieto station. It was proposed in July 2009, with the commencement of constructions in September 2009. CP5 will consist of two 50 MW units, increasing the total capacity of the Cerro Prieto Geothermal Power Station by 100 MW.[2][7]
