medium challenge-Play any three average, tough, or difficult 10-question player quizzes in a row, achieving scores of at least 7 on each.-the first two shown are the first two I did today, nothing has shown since although I have completed several more. Do the games take some time to appear or is it just mad at me?
Great new games, by the way. Thanks for all the new and interesting challenges.

I have played 17 new questions and none were registered as having been completed. I also completed thye medium challenge and it was also not recorded. I like the daily challenges and think it will be a good game when ironed out.

Please, please, please make sure to carefully READ your challenges before posting here.

95% of the things posted here are because people aren't even bothering to read the instructions.

einsteinII: Your challenge is "Play our Quick Quiz and bank at least 17 correct questions".

Did you BANK your quick quiz points?

The system shows you as having played a total of 3 player quizzes today:

Famous Rock Frontmen: Not 10 questions
I Think Not, Therefore I Am Not:
That Musician is from Michigan?:

Which others did you play, and have you played them within the past 30 days?

That's rotten luck though, getting it two days out of four.


I got it two days in a row, too. Use my swap the second time because I didn't want to bother about it.


Records show that you have not received this two days in a row.

No challenge of the same type and difficulty level will repeat two days in a row. If you receive it day 1 and swap it out, it can arrive day 2, but that doesn't sound like what you are describing.

Because we do not have infinite challenge types.

I've just played Brain Twist, and they didn't count; it is clearly a player created quiz, so should it count? Is it a problem with the points not being counted towards daily totals because it awards the Brain Twist reward?


Correct, brain twist doesn't count because it is a different system, even though its content comes from a user quiz. I'll add that to the text.

Correct.

The "7 complete challenges" award is not awarded when you have "6 complete challenges".

Who's the Smartest?

The Mixed Game
Fill Me In
Who's the Expert?
Quiz of the Hour

Can anyone help?

Have had other people miss Obscurity too, so I've added a list of all games to the challenge.

One of my teammates, davidcgraham has this challenge:

Rank in the top 25% of players in your division at the close of an hourly game of Obscurity.

However, he doesn't have gold membership. Can he get a new one in its place?

Thanks for the response. I assumed all quizzes were "player quizzes", including the ones listed as FTQuizBot. (since they are all submitted by players). Given the correct understanding, the challenge is complete. Thanks

I inititally had an issue with the Buzzy Bee challenge because the challenge description says, "Scavenger hunts begin completely randomly throughout the week. Keep an eye out on the Buzz for new hunts". I didn't realize that they run and regenerate pretty constantly (multiple times a day), which completely eliminates my concern that there would be no game available on certain days.

Terry, I didn't bank the new questions as you suggested and now that I know you have to do that, will do so in the future. Never played that quiz before. I wonder do you have any hints as to what I am doing wrong with the part of the challenge that requires me to complete two new quizzes posted today, which I did do? I am sorry if I am being thick here.

You need to do quizzes that were actually added today. Since the FT day is right now just under 12 hours old, you have just two options at the moment - the Venus quiz and the one on Canadian Celebrities. All other quizzes listed under "New" were added yesterday.

Edit: Seems the mixes don't count for this one - you need actual player quizzes (where the author is not FTQuizBot)

OK seems a little confusing but I will look for the ones that aren't mixes and that have been added new. I went to the Buzz to look for new quizzes but I must have missed these. Thanks.

Toward the top of the home page, just under the large 'FunTrivia' logo, is a section with several tabs. The first is for 'New' Quizzes, and clearly specifies when they came on line smile

May I suggest that the line "Play 2 new quizzes that are added to FunTrivia today, scoring at least 50% in each." be edited to state that player-generated quizzes (as opposed to quizbot)are required? That would save at least my confusion. "Postcards", thank you for directions but that is where I had been to find the two quizzes that I had completed but didnt realize that most didn't count as new quizzes.

If nothing else, the new challenge will certainly lead to more understanding of the 'ins and outs' of the site. Some of the queries have been somewhat 'interesting'.

Surdoux, I was actually surprised last night when I took a few moments to read through some of the chat board threads that relate to challenges (normal challenges).

I guess when you add stuff incrementally over a 10 year period you end up with a lot of stuff. I was amazed at the variety and the depth that we've got content-wise. A new player starting today on FT has at least 10 years of stuff to do AS IS, with no additional content or games added. That's pretty remarkable.
