Never seen this before, popped up earlier when the system was finding quizzes, apparently decided that I not only know the insides and outs of Hogwarts and Twilight, but remember the 80s well. Just curious, how does it decide what someone knows/likes?

You probably played some quizzes in the past (considering you're here), so it may have some good idea of what you prefer.

Will have to wait til next week unfortunately. I've spent most of the day tracing down some really weird bugs that appear not to be my fault! The worst type, since they can't be readily fixed. Gr.

I'm just inquiring how close is the new game to coming online? Is it going to be an on-going game, or is it going to be something you do daily until you reach the finish?

I don't know about your first question, but it is definitely an on-going game.

Note Terry's comment from the previous page (Pg 19):

Like with all games, there is something resembling a finish in the badges planned, but getting all of them will keep you busy for many months and possibly years and you can of course continue playing even after reaching them. Plus, we might always add more goals - the system is extremely flexible.

There will also likely be ranking lists to keep the game competitive beyond the badge thresholds.

As to when, hopefully within the next couple of weeks. It has been a little slower than I had hoped because I've also been dealing with some other unrelated irritating and time consuming technical issues.

I returned from the Paralympics to find that I didn't miss anything - I'm not sure whether I should be pleased that I don't have to feel guilty or annoyed that my playing hookey didn't get noticed, lol.

You were missed! It's been pretty slow though lately, in general, and the weekend wasn't much help.

Be careful with the side effects of that one - switching out a Twin or Nemesis needs to be dealt with. I'll test that one when you have the perk ready (Luckily I do have a Nemesis around)

I'm going to disallow switching out of those two just for simplicity sake, and to avoid completely confusing the partner.

Does the GM perk give you a choice of what to swap or does it randomly pick? Also, like the New Challenge button, do you have to have a certain complete to use it or can it be used at any time?

Looks to me like you get to choose. smile That will come in very convenient for those trying to get their 10 in a day for a badge. :P

You choose what disappears, but not what appears in its place.

Switch out added. I have removed the check that only allows 1 switch, so right now you can switch as much as you want to test it.

Oh, alright. I was just about to pop in to say it looks to work well, except that it let me switch it out twice. :P

But, since you did that intentionally, it looks good. wink Haha.

I just switched one challenge, and it worked perfectly. I then did the challenge and it recorded the result correctly. So far so good! smile

Worked the same way for me both times.

I have one challenge available, but I don't want to switch it out. It's one I can do. :P
