I didn't want to get over 3922 only to find it was literal, in that it had to be 3922. I guess I'm retarded, and I'll keep my stupid questions to myself. Sorry, didn't mean to sound mean. Really a joke, and I've seen that question appear, and began wondering how I figured it out myself in the first place! _________________________ Secret, shall I tell you?

"Does that mean 3922 points or more? Or exactly 3922 points? Just want to make sure. :P At least. Text modified. Top
 #826513 - Tue Sep 25 2012 02:13 AM Re: Daily Challenge Bugs & Questions rossian Prolific Registered: Sat Jun 10 2006 Posts: 1659 Loc: Merseyside UK I agree that pyonir's question is not stupid when you need to be certain. I have a similar situation with a hard challenge, which says 'score a total of 'x' correct answers in a particular category'. This could mean 'exactly x' or 'at least x'. All we new participants are asking for is clarity. I'm hoping it means 'at least' in this instance, too. _________________________ Editor - Sci/Tech Top

 #826517 - Tue Sep 25 2012 02:24 AM Re: Daily Challenge Bugs & Questions Terry Head Honcho Registered: Wed Dec 31 1969 Posts: 18076 Loc: USA The goal is to have the challenge text to be completely unambiguous so that no one even needs to think about asking such clarifications. They are slowly being tweaked as people ask questions here. Top

Yeah, can't sleep...not for lack of trying though...too much going on in my head right now I guess...and I took a nap earlier this afternoon, so that might have something to do with it.

 #826522 - Tue Sep 25 2012 03:48 AM Re: Daily Challenge Bugs & Questions WesleyCrusher Administrator Registered: Thu Sep 04 2008 Posts: 3895 Loc: Germany Added FAQ entry to clarify that when a challenge does neither specify "at least" nor "exactly" with some number, it does not have to be an exact match, just to be on the safe side. _________________________ FunTrivia Editor (Hobbies and Sci/Tech) and AdministratorGuardian of the Tower Top

Does this include the International Games? They're listed as Hourly in the Games dropdown menu. Top
 #826532 - Tue Sep 25 2012 05:00 AM Re: Daily Challenge Bugs & Questions flopsymopsy Moderator Registered: Sat May 17 2008 Posts: 2815 Loc: Northampton England UK I don't think so, Julia - it means Easy, Mixed, Smartest, Obscurity, FMI, Word, Expert, and Quiz of the Hour (I hope I haven't forgotten one). _________________________ The Hubble Telescope has just picked up a sound from a fraction of a second before the Big Bang.

 #826533 - Tue Sep 25 2012 05:05 AM Re: Daily Challenge Bugs & Questions WesleyCrusher Administrator Registered: Thu Sep 04 2008 Posts: 3895 Loc: Germany Easy, Mixed, Smartest, Obscurity, FMI, Word, Expert are the seven eligible ones for this game. Quiz of the Hour doesn't have rankings and the international game is not considered an hourly.Edit: Added the list to FAQ since it's quite lengthy for adding to challenge texts.

I thought it was too good to be true when I ended up at the top of the list for an International game that I had played for a different challenge. (I generally use the dropdown to go to the different games, so tbe way it's indicated there is what led to my confusion.) Top

 #826580 - Tue Sep 25 2012 10:17 AM Re: Daily Challenge Bugs & Questions WesleyCrusher Administrator Registered: Thu Sep 04 2008 Posts: 3895 Loc: Germany We should be able to see both answers on their profile once they make it. It's not me, unfortunately - I got a doable 7th so I can grab that badgelet, but it was nowhere near epic. _________________________ FunTrivia Editor (Hobbies and Sci/Tech) and AdministratorGuardian of the Tower Top

It's not me, unfortunately - I got a doable 7th so I can grab that badgelet, but it was nowhere near epic. I'll only get 7 today if I get lucky in the Crystal Ball, which I'm not expecting. I've got 6 complete though, so even without Crystal Ball I'll snag the badgelet first thing tomorrow morning. _________________________ This is not a signature... Top
 #826603 - Tue Sep 25 2012 10:55 AM Re: Daily Challenge Bugs & Questions CliftonClowers Participant Registered: Sat Feb 12 2011 Posts: 24 Loc: Ohio USA I got an epic on my first buy and wished I hadn't. From following the testing thread I knew that particular challenge was coming and the numbers that were being discussed for various levels. I have been religiously adding my 6 scores every day to see what I was capable of in comparison to those numbers. I know for certain that taking my best scores over a couple week period in each game and then adding them wouldn't equal my target number. I also found out you can't substitute out an epic. I guess epic is a truly fitting description of this challenge. Top
 #826607 - Tue Sep 25 2012 11:06 AM Re: Daily Challenge Bugs & Questions Terry Head Honcho Registered: Wed Dec 31 1969 Posts: 18076 Loc: USA Clifton -- not to worry. I am keeping stats for all completion rates of all challenges. If it turns out some are too easy or too difficult, they will be tweaked over time.The idea for them to be very difficult, but certainly not impossible to achieve. Top

I guess epic is a truly fitting description of this challenge. I remember trying the Epic you got. As I recall, I missed it by a mere 3 incorrect answers...less than 200pts. _________________________ This is not a signature... Top

Check now for the corrected. Still high, but certainly better... Edited by Terry (Tue Sep 25 2012 11:50 AM) Top
 #826614 - Tue Sep 25 2012 11:59 AM Re: Daily Challenge Bugs & Questions CliftonClowers Participant Registered: Sat Feb 12 2011 Posts: 24 Loc: Ohio USA Thanks, Terry.That is certainly achievable if I play well. If not I don't deserve it anyway. Top
