> Proper Zip Archive Format

Hi all,

Challenge organizer here and I wanted to clarify a small but important detail. The scoring program needs to unzip your archive and find the imaging data you all are submitting and two files "Worksheet A*" and "Worksheet B*". The "*" represents additional customizations to the filename. As long as "Worksheet <A or B>" shows up in the file names, it should pass.

Also, the submission should contain the worksheets ("Worksheet <A or B>" ) at the root directory of the archive ("proper_archive.zip"):
/
Worksheet A.docx
Worksheet B.docx
data folder 1
...
data folder n

We are seeing some participants with this directory structure ("incorrect_archive.zip"):
/some_folder
Worksheet A.docx
Worksheet B.docx
data folder 1
...
data folder n

and that will cause a failure as the scoring program will look in "/" for the worksheets. Thanks for your attention and message us here if you have more questions.

Please disreagard this if it is spamming you. I'm testing the email system.

Hi everyone,

We are getting many submissions where the *.docx's aren't in the right format. We are expecting this text in the two worksheet files:

"Worksheet A" and "Worksheet B" and then any other details you want and then the extension ".docx".

So more explicitly:

"Worksheet A" + "any other string you want" + ".docx"
"Worksheet B" + "any other string you want" + ".docx"

So "WorksheetA", "worksheetA", "Worksheet_A" are all examples that won't work. If this is a big problem I can code in if else blocks that can handle many combos, but I'm not sure how many people will try.
