Just because they registered before doesn't mean they'll register this time. I think this is a brand new one he created, so it probably doesn't have a memory of previous hours. It won't register.

Besides, you and I had to win the twin challenge three or four times yesterday, having to be first in an hourly again today isn't so bad. wink

Ahem. See above.

First in an hourly isn't bad if one CAN, it's the process.

Pshaw, the twin challenge was easy peasy. wink

also BTW, although you guys are getting these "very similar" challenge types at the same time, I've added code so that in reality you'd never get these combos on the same day:

Rank in the top 5 in your division in any hourly game.
Rank #1 in your division in any hourly game

Score at least 7/10 in any two International Hourly games in the same hour.
Score at least 7/10 in all four International Hourly games in the same hour.

etc etc.

That's good, I had thought there would be a way not to get them in the same day (especially for those that want you to play the daily quiz at different difficulties).

I had thought it might be possible to get two in the same day, but I knew you had something to prevent it. wink

Mariamir, we have both been checked off now for that one. Perhaps we alerted Terry to a bug with our little conversation, or it just was new enough it hadn't ticked over yet. wink

My screen is so pretty with all green checks. I don't think I've actually been able to do that yet. wink

I just logged on and I have 6 more credits than I had yesterday, with no completions marked on my page.

I was apparently credited with two Difficult challenge completions that I didn't know about.

I just tried to beat the system by replaying something today (my Easy task) which it says won't count until tomorrow... and it's right, it didn't count it. Just checking. smile

I find it humorous that I can see the coding because I am looking at a new challenge as Terry is creating it. It isn't ready yet, but it shows on my screen. Purple boxes! :P

My Global Challenge task just went from incomplete to complete after playing one category of this afternoon's game. Is it counting the 5 I played this morning for this or is that a mistake?

"I was apparently credited with two Difficult challenge completions that I didn't know about." - probably just a side effect of me undoing and redoing the scoring.

Oh, I completed my Medium Challenge "Time to be creative! Come up with 3 trivia questions to add to our pool, in 3 different categories." with no problems.

I don't know of this has been verified but I did an easy challenge (Score at least 1104 pts in the Daily Game and finish a crossword without any problems. The 5 sets in the GC worked too.

Finish in the top 5 in your division in a hourly game works too.

I'm having so much trouble with this one today, it's a little depressing. I know I can do it because I've done it many many times before. I guess today is just not my day. I've won Expert 11 times (and once I beat everyone else in the entire game), and I've won Piece of Cake and Word Wizard before...just cannot pull it together for this challenge...

Update: YAY!! Finally got a top 5 finish to complete my last Medium challenge! With my luck on categories today I'll be hard pressed to get a first place finish to complete my final challenge, so I'm going to call it a night. All the ones that I did complete today seemed to be recording and working fine on the challenge page.

Terry, these were very fun today! I played so many more daily challenges than I've played in a day for a very long time. It was a nice change from my normal "regular quizzes only" routine.

And added bonus: I also won the new "Zero" challenge, in 16 secs! laugh

Apart from my inability to read the instructions earlier today and my normal failure in the Ouija Board Crystal Ball I've managed to complete everything today with no problems. Well, apart from the Nemesis challenge which Kaddarsgirl will win - and deserves to win because she got me through the Twin Challenge yesterday. smile

You're not expected to complete all challenges, so dont worry about it if you cant. The difficult ones in particular are designed to be very hit or miss.
