I bought this challenge today:

"Score a cumulative total of at least 78 questions correct playing player-created quizzes.

* Brain twist and mixed multi-author quizzes do not count. You may re-take quizzes as long as you have not played them within the last 30 days."

Sorry, should I misunderstand this, this means that only player-created quizzes count, but not the FTQuizBot mixed quizzes on the main page?
I tried it twice now, I played the Harder Celebrities Mix and the Music Mix and both added to my count. I believe it happened to me a few days ago already, but I wasn't completely sure so this time I deliberately checked and the system does count the QuizBot mixed quizzes as well (my score rose from 8 to 26).

They do count if played in "Play" mode, but will not if played in HTML mode. (This is also true in challenges where you have to play in so many FT categories.)

Yesterday, January 1st, my difficult quest was to get past fado72 in the expert game. Funnily enough I did have the highest score within my four attempts, fado even congratulated me, but I never got the credits. In yesterday's results I see that it is still marked as uncomplete. Did I misunderstand something?
TC, Malama.

Not just you malama, I had the expert challenge yesterday , it showed that my best score had beaten all 4 of my opponents scores when I looked at my challenges page last night yet this morning it is showing as incomplete.

I had the expert challenge yesterday also, and it is showing as incomplete. I'm not positive I beat my opponent, but I'm pretty sure. My opponent was a new member and had not played at all when I last checked last night. Looking at yesterday's results, it doesn't show my scores from yesterday, it just says incomplete.

I had Nemesis yesterday, which I won, and was given credit for. So this must just be Expert that is causing the problem.

One of my teammates, Dragonfrog, challenges yesterday was the Expert ... post 4 scores against an opponent, highest score wins. She posted 4 scores her opponent didn't post any. She got an incomplete message at days end. This peeved her no end because it also stopped her from completing the 10 in a day challenge.

I also had the Expert challenge yesterday and when I went to work this morning was well in front, my opponent had one shot to fire. I got the incomplete message as well when I checked and figured my opponent must have played a blinder so I sent her a note to congratulate her. In her reply she congratulated me on the win which didn't make sense to me.

I'm wondering if there's a glitch here Terry?

To assure our continued existence and keep the Mayan end of days at bay, some daily challenges will need to be sacrificed to the god QxctcalyXicotyl. We thank you for doing your part.

I was not awarded three points for my Expert win either but I can't compain as I was given points for my easy and medium challenges, even though I did not play them. Swings and roundabouts :-)

Hmm indeed, no one was awarded Expert challenge wins for yesterday. Will investigate.

Problem found and fixed (it related to New Year's too).

All scores should now be credited for the Expert challenges.

But honestly, I don't remember my credit total going up from the day my Expert challenge was won but marked Incomplete. I don't think it went up yesterday either when all three challenges were marked Complete when I first logged in, nor today after the 'fix'. Am I missing something?

Terry, can you please check my teammates card ... the fixed up expert game should have given her the 10 in a day but nothing has come through so far

My easy challenge today :
Quote:
Play 2 new player-created quizzes that are added to FunTrivia today, scoring at least 50% in each.

* Auto-generated quizzes by FTQuizBot do not count.


I haven't played any quizes today except for 3 Newest Mixed Quizzes.

Quote:
- Harder Sci / Tech Mix 9/10 OK
- World Mix 9/10 OK
- Movies Mix 10/10 OK
Complete


The challenge specifically states no quizbot quizzes count but I'm marked as complete. Not that I mind but this does seem to be a bug.

They only count if played in "PLAY" mode, if played in HTML mode they do not count. I do not know if this is what was intended but it is how it works.

The problem isn't that quizzes were played in the wrong mode. The problem is that the challenge specifically states that those mixed quizzes will not count, but they are being scored as counting and the challenge is complete.

And the required amount of completed quizzes was to be two while the completed list shows three.

Daisij, did you look to see if it said complete or incomplete once you'd played the first two quizzes?
Usually it seems the complete screen shows just the quizzes played that made the challenge a success and doesn't display overages. This then seems to be a case where a stated challenge was graded against a different result criteria.

Sixty pages of bugs in three months might mean it's needed to sideline the game until fixes are input and proven to be fixes and not stop-gaps. This is a tremendous facet to the site and took much work to create the framework. A hiatus might be a good thing while the flesh is put on that structure. Just a thought from a Mutant Noggin.

This is typically the case, regardless. The system checks to see which quizzes you've completed, pass or fail, and lists them with the appropriate checks. This usually disappears after you reload the page and you're marked with a 'Complete!'.

I don't think a hiatus is needed. The errors appear to be something that can be easily fixed. Also, the easiest way to find an error is to play the game.

Issues in these challenges get fixed as they are found. The issue reported above is incredibly minor and is an easy fix.

There would be a lot fewer posts if you would stop arguing with those people who do report issues. This is a thread for reporting issues -- not for arguing about them and then getting up in arms because there are too many posts here. Irony indeed.
