The CSR Archive (Work in progress)

The Car Shopping Round Archive

CSR recently passed 100 rounds over the past 3 years and I thought it would be a good idea to make an archive of all of the rounds to look back at the history of Automation and its community over the past 3 years through its most consistent challenge.

It is a lot to do in one go so this will be a work in progress for awhile. :sweat_smile: Also a lot of the early rounds didn’t have a lot of ads and sometimes only the winner was named, so this first bit may look rough

Thanks to @goblin95 for creating a Google sheet of most info on all of the CSR and CSC rounds!

It would be nice to see the goal for each CSR so we can understand why they won. Otherwise, it’s really interesting!

Thanks, I plan on adding more each round and I’m getting some help with stats soon hopefully, but for now the rounds will just be linked to their prompt.

I feel that you need to be corrected: it was phale who won CSR25, not me (I finished second, not first). But he chose not to host CSR26 (which came immediately after it), so I hosted that one instead. For reference, here’s the post regarding the final outcome of CSR25:
