Mops can be found in the Housewares Department, aisle 7. Sorry, the laundromat next door is closed for a race of some kind. Maybe you could just toss the wet pants and run the race as a streaker?

The challenge idea acepted in this list...
Author Badges:
Author Answer/ WesleyCrusher: 10 commissions in Autor Challenge.

Another with 3000(the Armchair Champ)
Fantasy Master/joecali: Reach 5000 points in the KO Fantasy.
[/b]




Compilation of Post(1/2)

New Games:
Countdown(Tizzabelle) There are ten clues given one by one and in flash format it would be fine as you couldn't go back to the first clue after you've already bypassed it.

There would be 10 questions. Answer correctly on the first question and get maximum pts. Answer correctly on the 2nd q and receive 90% of the pts and so on. If you fluke the answer on the first go, bravo to you! The subject could be almost anything – people, plants, animals, minerals, rivers, mountains, mountain ranges, tv shows, movies

Flash Quizzes:
"990/Emerald" challenge WesleyCrusher :playing any one Flash robot game with a 990 or higher score.

"24 carat Sterling/Garnet" WesleyCrusher would be a good one - play 24 Flash games with scores of 925 or higher.

All Games
"Overachiever/75 s’" WesleyCrusher: meeting the score for any five different achievement badges in half the listed time (e.g. 20 secs for easy, 150 for mind melt, etc.) . Probably a level badge for the 50s or 75s.

Mega Master/ salami_swami: which you receive when you have 50,000 points in all the games that you can get points, thus receiving all the mastery badges, which then qualifies you for the mega master badge?

Team Playing:
TEAM CONTRIBUTOR/WesleyCrusher - Topaz badgelet

Awarded to a player who has posted at least one qualifying top 200 score in at least seven of the nine games providing these scores.

TEAM REGULAR/WesleyCrusher - Sapphire badge

Awarded to a player who, over the course of one calendar month, has posted at least 100 qualifying top 200 scores over the nine games.

TEAM LEGEND/WesleyCrusher - Level 125 badge

Awarded to a player who, over the course of one calendar month, has obtained at least 25,000 total points for their top 200 rankings in the nine games.

Team quizzer(kyleisalive/badgelet ): Heading a team quiz



Compilation of Post(2/2)[/b]

[b]OLYMPIC BADGES


The concept is that a lot of badges have a bronze, silver and gold upgrade. They keep the same icon and title, but the background looks more like a metal thing. They also have requirements that are typically much higher than those of the normal badge.

A few examples:

Point god - Bronze at 2.5 mil, Silver at 5 mil, Gold at 10 mil
Achievement: Mind Melt - Bronze for 240 secs, Silver for 180, Gold for 120 (all with 30/30)

When I checked, about 70 badges (not even counting badgelets) had criteria that would make them upgradeable this way. About half of those are based on data that we can retroactively track and thus award, the others (like hourly win counts) would be something everyone would be starting fresh on - lots of replay value.

The criteria should be set such that ambitious players can get the bronzes with some decent effort, silvers should be difficult enough that they'll remain quite exclusive (a few hundred) and golds should really never be more than 100 of each.



LEVEL OLYMPIC BADGES:

Then of course, the real prizes (level-triggered megabadges):

Bronze Challenger (75th) - gain 25 bronze (or better) awards
Silver Legend (125th) - gain 35 silver (or better) awards
Gold Eternal (175th! and pretty much impossible to get) - gain 50 gold awards


Word Wizzard mini Game

Word Safari badge here you have to visit the various continents collecting animals as you go. Here is the list: -

Africa - Zebra
North America - Moose
Central America - Sloth
South America - Llama
Asia - Tiger
Australia - Dingo
Europe - Otter


Overall winners:
Awesome Newest /flopsymopsy: Best overall in New Question
Final World/Barbarini: Best overall in Word Wizard


Scravengers:

24 hr Cats: Adding more badgelet for score X point in a category in a single day.

Alphabetical Sound/joecali: Score over the 50% in 26 quizzes selection, 1 for every letter in the alphabet.

Decathlon Race/joecali: Score over the 50% in 10 quizzes about 10 different sports.


Monthly Badges:


Monthly Endurance/joecali:Most points during the month (top 10)

Monthly Bonus/joecali: This medal only counts for bonus points earned in the month and is more open to be won by gold and standar members.

Monthly Brainiac/joecali: 530 brains in a month. Fantastic. It's almost 17 brains every day.



Fantasy KO Badges

Fantasy Scorer/joecali (mini): Reach 500 points in the KO Fantasy.

Quizes Badges:[/b]

500 miles from FT/joecali: Achieve 500 questions correct in the 20 categories.

Marathon Quizzer/joecali: Score 42.195 answers correct. (Marathon=42195 Km)

Ten Perfection/joecali: Score 100% in 10 quizzes in 10 consecutive days.

DiMaggio Streak/joecali Score 100% in 5 quizzes in 56 consecutives days.(Changed)


Global Challenge Badges

18-mini badges/joecali for top score across all categories of the Global Challenge.

All Challenge/joecali:Win the 18 mini-badges of Global Challenge


Other Games:
Perfect Mad/Barbarini:
It would be very nice to see a badge for a perfect score in this one, much like the Obscurity Research badge.

Ball of Platinum/ salami_swami
A crystal ball 100 win badge? A "send a note to salami_swami, chat with him a bit, because he is awesome" badge? lol. Play 100 photo quizzes?

Green Monster/ssabreman: 20000 Monster question.

Honeybee Buzzer/joecali: Win in 10 bee buzzy scravengers.

Master of the Hour/joecali: Completed 10.000 quizzes of the hour.

Others:
Hide and run/ BxBarracuda: Have the badgelet randomly appear if certain tough but not impossible criterias are met somewhere on the page when checking how one did on the quiz. Or even have it be totally random for the badgelet to show up once an hour or something. So people would always have to keep their eyes open.

Maybe even have it hidden in the pull down of the ratings menu. Excellent, Good, BADGE, Average etc.


Braniac/ssabreman: 20 000 or 25 000 Brain

I try to put all proposal in this thread.

The post in this year:



Word Wizard:
eyhung(Apr/2012)
- A badgelet for submitting a word via word wizard that you've won the Crystal Ball with.

Scravengers:
eyhung(Apr/2012)
- A badge for finishing all the scavenger hunts.


Authoring

eyhung(Apr/2012)
- A badge or badgelet that somehow encourages people to play and rate the New Questions Game.

Wesley Crusher(Apr/2012)
How about 20 (twenty!) new minis that will keep our members occupied for a long time? To be added to the Prismatic Staircase, each of them rewarded for authoring 5 quizzes in a particular category (if you want to be truly evil, you can add that one of them must have Sunnies...). These would majorly benefit the site as they would be a big bad driving force for those 150+ types (who need them for the Mastery) to convert their play experience into more quizzes.

Wesley Crusher(Apr/2012)
An entry level authoring full badge (currently our lowest available is 5 categories) for authoring a single qualifying quiz in any one of our ten less populated categories.


Expert

eyhung(Apr/2012)
I forgot, I'd also like to see a badge that rewards multiple wins in the Champion Division of the Expert Game. Say, 20-50 wins, against at least 15 opponents. It really doesn't feel like winning the Expert Game is very meaningful unless it's a gainst the very best.


Wesley Crusher(Apr/2012)
Obtaining an Expert Champion rating of 1650+ (at any time, not necessarily year end). Better than just champ victories as it's a more skillful style of play.

I see another idea...but I dont remember who write.

Expert Tour: Win in South America, Central America, North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia.


***************************

Crossword
Wesley Crusher(Apr/2012)
Crosswords could direly use a new top level award - 250 or even 500 hard mode crosswords solved. At only two badges of medium difficulty, this is an underappreciated section.

Dialy Question
Wesley Crusher(Apr/2012)
Monthlies for Daily and World Game. Pot of Gold already has the weekly and thus doesn't need a monthly, but the other two do. Just make sure they're based on actual score, not percentiles - otherwise Daily's divisions would make this one impossible for those already thrown into Champ.


Quiz playing

Trending! Wesley Crusher(Apr/2012)
Trending! award for playing 250 quizzes within 24 hours of release.

Wesley Crusher(Apr/2012)
Just for the speed demons: A 990 badgelet for achieving said score in any of the Mixed quizzes.

Millenarium authors-joecali(13-dec-2012)
Play and score over 50% in 25 Nightmare, kyleisalive,CAGuy0206,thejazzkickazz quizes.




Fill In
joecali(Dec/2011)
Fill around(Badge):
Score 750 in 9 games over a 24-hour period.

Fill All(Badge):
Score 750 in 150 games over a month.
joecali(Dec/2011)




Team Player
Wesley Crusher(Apr/2012)
One for the level 125 or 150 extras as it will take quite a while to obtain: Teamplay Legend / Master (depending on level) - accumulate a total of one million "top 200" points for your team over all the games that offer them.

Wesley Crusher(Apr/2012)
A badgelet for heading a team quiz

Hero of Heroes/Wesley Crusher(Apr/2012): Make it onto your team's hero roster in 100 different categories.


"Team Superhero" Daddy19(Dec/2011)- awarded to a player who holds the team record for xx categories in the Team Heroes game.

"Top Team" Daddy19(Dec/2011)awarded to anyone who contributed to a team ranking #1 in a Team Hero category

Another Games:
Wesley Crusher(Apr/2012)
Some cumulative New Questions Game award - I'd still stick with a number (100?) of days with a 400 or 500 score. Just high enough a barrier to be an incentive for really trying, but none that would encourage googling.

Wesley Crusher(Apr/2012)
Another one for the speed freaks - Quick Quiz Frenzy: Bank 75 correct answers for quick questions within 10 minutes of playing your first question regardless of how many you get wrong. (If we want to make this slightly less evil, use 15 minutes - my own best is around 9:15, so 10 is nasty).


Wesley Crusher(Apr/2012)
Also, for the same game, a 5000 Quick Questions cumulative award.

Obscure Wizard(Nov/2011):
* Best in the obscure game with 30 participant min.





Mixed
Hour power/MikeMaster(Apr/2012):
What about a mini-badge for a super-hour? Players need to score some extremely high number of points from quizzes, games etc. If there's any traction in that idea, what would be a target number for such a badgelet? 3000 points? The 3000 is based on correctly answering all of a 10 question quiz every 3 minutes for that hour. Clearly that will be easy for some but possibly a challenge for many.

eyhung(Apr/2012):
- A badgelet for having every possible game checked off at a particular time. (maybe not include the Gold Member games).


'Parting Gift'/kyleisalive(Jan/2012)
--Score an identical score to the first-place player of any hourly, but miss out on the lead position because you scored after them.



500 questions correct/salami_swami(Dec/2011) - mini badge
This can be achieved in a week by most players. 10 hours of a game with 10 right each day for a week equals one new mini-badge.

5,000 questions correct/salami_swami(Dec/2011) - regular badge
This can be achieved in 50 days. 10 hours a day, 10 right every time, 50 days.

50,000 questions correct/salami_swami(Dec/2011) - mega badge/salami_swami(Dec/2011)
This can be achieved in 500 days, assuming players play 10 hours a day every single day, and get 10 right every single time. Realistically, it would take a bit longer than that for most players

Endurance of the Hour-joecali(Dec 13/2012)
Score the highest score across all hourly games.

Endurance of the Year-joecali(Dec 13/2012)
Score in the top 5% in a year. Very difficult and a hard task.

First, there is no Level 80+ badgelet (maybe you mean Level 75?)
Second, that appears to be a little too easy for a badgelet (especially at that high a level). Maybe if a player were to achieve a certain score--either 1) a cumulative score or 2) a certain score for each game.

If that were to happen (and it were to become a level badgelet), then maybe Level 50 and not Level 75 (I think level 75 might be too high). The only problem with that is that you could only play 2 of the 5 Point Tree games instead of 4 of the 5.

Also, regarding the crossword badge that WesleyCrusher suggested, we already have a badge for that (Crossworder: 250 hard mode or 750 any mode), so that can be taken off your list.

Point Tree is already a game devoted to bonus points, why would we need a reward for a reward?

I believe we've already discussed this-- we don't want to encourage players to rate simply for the reward. This is kind of why we don't have any ratings-based badges (other than the one).

The final level perk it's for a player in level 80...

Use all weeakly perks isn't too easy, the player must be in the level 80+ and the Crossword of Week it's the real challenge.

Hi Kile I compiled the suggestions, without see any discution about them.

The reward isn't for play the Point Tree is for used all perks in a week...a player with a level 40 only can play 2/4 categories(he can't elegible to win the badgelet), a player with a level 80 can play the four categories.

Hi Buddy isn't a level challenge, a player under the level 80 cant't win the badgelet.

It is a level challenge (you yourself say Level 80+ badgelet). However, the only level X badges (badgelets) are for Level 25, 50, 75, 100, 125, and 150.

Yep, plan is to start adding some new things next week! I think I'll do a combination of adding a few new badges + a few new daily challenges.

Also may add an epic or two that aren't part of the "flag" epic daily challenge series but are stand alone awards of their own.

It would be nice if we were somehow able to achieve both, the 'Fish' and the 'Frog' badge, once one completed ALL the Great Quiz Race quizzes.
