I got an Epic today, but it's one I already have and not one that I feel able to tackle again. Oh for the ability to swap that one out!

I've received a medium challenge today which is to play thirteen different quizzes in the Old Testament / Tanakh Quiz subcategory and score 7 out of ten, surely a challenge that should be one of a difficult rating, not medium.

These appear as both medium and difficult challenges. In general the difficult challenge requires more quizzes to be played and sometimes more than 7 correct in each.

Actually, the number correct varies either within medium and difficult. I've gotten as little as 4 and as much as 8 on both medium and difficult challenges.

My challenge: Score at least 7/10 in all four International Hourly games in the same hour.

I've been credited with this, although I haven't managed it. Which is very kind, but perhaps something needs to be fixed?

I have a question with regards to the "Totally Epic" badge. I have all of the flags except for the white one. I am not a Gold Member at present and the badge states it is a GM challenge. Does that mean I will not get the white flag epic challenge, no matter what, until I become a GM again? Or can I actually get a white flag challenge and complete the "Totally Epic" badge while not being a GM?

Any guidance would be appreciated. I don't want to be obsessing over buying challenges to try and get the white flag epic if it's impossible for me to win the badge as a non-GM.

Today my Medium Daily challenge is:

Play the Easy Game and score 10/10 within 40.0 seconds.
Not beaten yet. Incomplete (as of 4:04 PM EST)

I played the 3:30PM EST Easy Game (Movies) 10/10 33.9 secs 966. Shouldn't the Medium Daiy Challenge now show as complete?

Did you play the game after you received the challenge? It looks to me like it should have counted, unless you played first and only afterwards looked at your daily challenges for the first time today.

Yes I completed the Easier Daily Challenge earlier today and then played the Medium Challenge.

Also there have been occasions where I played quizzes that satisfied the Easier Daily Challenge before I went to the page and I'm pretty sure I got credit.

I'll let Terry know about it. If possible, try to beat the time again however so we'll see whether it's been a one-time issue or reproducable.

It's not an error. This challenge is not retroactive. Something about the fractions of seconds make this difficult to retroactively award it when you see the challenge. This particular one starts when you check your challenge page. smile

The way I read the times is that you had the challenge issued. Then sometime after 3:30 you played the Easy Game. But didn't see credit by 4:04. I think you have to wait for the Game to cycle into the next hour for it to be accounted for (ie, 4:30). Though it may show on your boards as done, the system mightn't accept it until the game is over. But I don't play the challenges so I might be wrong.

You should use the FunTrivia time when reporting your actions. smile Your 3:30 EST was 1:30PM FT Time. Wes answers from Germany and he might misread your EST for FTT and then misread the site logs.

Since the white flag is not a GM challenge, it is possible you'll get that epic. You can complete it and earn that mini-badge, but you will not earn the Totally Epic badge simply because you're not a GM.

When playing other Daily Challenges as soon as they were satisfied they immediately showed as complete, excepting Twin Challenge, Nemesis, which specifically says scores at midnight, the Daily Challenges requiring a total certain score in Global Challenge, Daily Challenges which require op 10 or Top 5 in Division. Since I played the game next hour and the Challenge immediately showed completed I'm assuming it was a glitch.

I tend to agree with Buddy, but I guess its theoretically possible that the GM badge could keep you from getting that last mini. I wouldn't know from getting them because I have awful luck at being lucky! Lol.

All other daily challenges are retroactive, Sally. I'd try to find the discussion about this particular challenge, somewhere in this thread, but there are oh so many pages to scroll through. wink lol

That's why I asked whether the game was played before or after first retrieving challenges...
