"And super excited for the amazing race badge..."

This one is pretty complicated. I didn't realize initially how many stages and things there were! I've thought of a good way to implement it though, so it's in the works.

If the 20 category author badgelets are on the agenda, how about this for images? (Individual details can be changed as I have a layered file, I did swap around things a bit for a better category fit and the background is a public domain NASA image, so no issue there)

(Of course you'd want these to be the first 20 on the badgelet list just to make people go for the full set smile )

Slight issue with this one - "Legendary" is the moniker used for level 125 specials, so this either needs to be moved to the 125 list or renamed ("Epic"?)

Too funny. One American and two players from England for example. An 8 hour difference where I live. Kind of hard to communicate when two players are asleep.

I happen to be in complete agreement with Dippo here. The odds of two people having the same score, while not scoring anymore, and not having a third player doing their thing, are pretty low. What should have happened was AdamM7 should have sent a note to Dippo or the other player and asked if they needed a third. Not just stroll on by and butt in.

I have a suggestion for a new badge. How about a Mastery Badge for a certain number of points scored in a particular category for those of us that like to take quizzes away from the games. I know that we have the "24 hours of...", but how about like a Masters of Television for those that score ?????? in the Television Category.

Maybe since a lot of the remaining categories are a bit more niche we could combine some of them.
24 hrs. of Miscelleny in which you need to get 3000+3000 pts in two of three categories (Ent., TV, VG) or 2000+2000+2000 in all three.

Hey, thanks for updating the front page to show "215" instead of "198". You may also want to update the Scavenger Hunt page to show the new 24-hour hunts.

I love getting new badges unexpectedly. And my first mega badge at that!!!

And I sure hope Wes's quiz badgelet series is implemented. I wonder how many I qualify for...

Wow! And that whole 1 hour time difference between Dippo, Horadada and AdamM7 really made such a big time difference didn't it? Wonder which one of them was in bed!

One wonders why Dippo and Horadada didn't move off to try again another day, if they were so worried that their other team mate who was sleeping wouldn't get the badge?

What's that I hear? We want the badge? Get real Anton.

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.

I understand that it's supposed to be vague, but are these mini-badges related to playing quizzes from The Amazing Trivia Race or for something else (like the Sprint)?

Whatever they are, like other pond-dwellers of the more avian nature :), these two badgelets are not meant to actively be tried for. Wait till they fall in your lap (or vice versa).

So my idea of playing all the quizzes for the race is a no go? I found a fish quiz and a toad quiz, that ain't the answer.

Not actively try for? Avian pond-dweller badges? So it's like the lucky duck? Great. Just great. And only certain quiz racers might discover it?

I don't mind when the badges are super sadistic, but vague? I don't like vague. ;-)
