Looking at the scores, there's ONE quiz he did not score 70% correct. I suspect this is the busy bee quiz.

I saw the Japan Busy Bee quiz has ended. Player caparica had scored 8/10 earlier.
Just reporting this, perhaps there is a bug.
Edit...I see now, it was a 15 question quiz.

I just asked a question on Ask Fun Trivia and received no credit for doing so. It was to achieve my credit for easy in my daily challenge.
Anybody know why this glitch has occurred?

Thanks.

I just checked the new questions page of AskFT and did not see any question posted by you on the list. Did you just type a question into the space, or did you click "Post a Question"?

If you didn't click "Post a Question" you wouldn't get credit, because you wouldn't have actually asked the question.

I have made the mistake of not actually posting a question a time or two... wink

Not to be a poor sport about the Who's the Expert Daily Challenge, but I played one game early on 12/13, and got a nice score (1463). So I left for work, come back to see if my opponent beat it, and see he has two scores, and I have NONE. I clearly would have won. I likely will get my 20th difficult victory eventually, but I thought I would report it here to see if it's a bug that has been a problem. It DOES come up on "My results" under the Expert game that I played today. I have no more time to get another game in.

As stated before, you need an opponent chosen before any of the Expert games you play will count for the challenge. Did you have an opponent? If not, there's your answer. If yes,hmmm...

Well, it's been established that playing before getting an opponent doesn't and isn't supposed to work, but I just tried it anyhow. Didn't count. All's good. smile

All right, good to know. Looks like I'll get my 20th today, have three times the requirements of it, and should hold on to at least one until noon.

A few days ago, I tried too, just for fun. I was awarded an opponent within the 15 seconds it took me to click my expert game quick link, play without actually answering, and going back to the page. So I was scored with a 188. :P

Score at least 7/10 in any two International Hourly games in the same hour.

Complete


No, I haven't completed this. I got 8 in one, and 6 in another, the rest below 6. I have been trying the last few hours to get 2 scores of 7/10, and have failed up until this point. Yet, it says I have completed it.

Perhaps it took my 6 as a 7, or perhaps it took the last 2 hours, since I scored 7/10 last hour as well, but only once?

In any case, I KNOW I have not done this in the same hour.

I'm going for the Ten in a Day Badge. I bought this challenge. When I've had a challenge, if it was already done, I received credit. This time, it didn't happen.

•Play the Easy Game and score 10/10 within 23.0 seconds.
Not beaten yet. Incomplete

I've already scored four 10/10's in 16 and one in 21 so far today. Not a big deal. I can always get it the next hour's game, but it could be a problem if somebody else gets or buys the same challenge late in the day.

My Easy challenge today was to play a quiz whose title begins with the letter 'N' and score 3 questions correct.

I suddenly realised that today's Bus Ride quiz is that brilliant and entertaining offering by dsimpy titled 'Nigeria: Economic Beacon of West Africa' - handily beginning with the letter 'N'.

(By the way, did I mention how brilliant and entertaining that particular quiz is?)

Well I played it ... but my Easy challenge remained 'incomplete'.

Boo, hiss! mad

Now I guess you might say that the FT programming caught on to the fact that dsimpy was playing dsimpy's quiz and simply said 'No Way!'

But it did give me Bus Ride credit for playing my own quiz (including the Bonus, I 'think'). So why not credit for the Daily Challenge too?

Glitch or what? tongue

I would be very surprised to get credit for a quiz I had written on the Daily Challenges. Perhaps the Bus Ride gives you credit because there is no other choice of quiz to play?

I think the Bus Ride grants the bonus FT points for answering more than 50% correct because, as you say, there is no choice in the quiz, but the player doesn't get the regular FT points for the quiz itself.

TD! Ten in a Day! When I had nine challenges done, my tenth was a Nemesis challenge. To be sure, I just bought another, and played my Daily Quiz in Easier mode to get there. It pays to save up. I saved up 200 credits before starting, so I still have 61 left in the "bank"! Nice.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

I just bought a challenge - and I had already failed when I went to look as I had already played the game earlier. That is sooo frustrating frown

Dsimpy, for bus ride, it is simply because bus ride allows to play your own quiz, these challenges do not. No glitch. You will also NEVER see a quiz you authored in a "play these quizzes and score x right" challenge either. wink

Payday loans and similar quick-money services charge over 100% annual interest!!! There was a time when anything over 20% was considered usurious and therefore illegal, and only loansharks would extort money at such rates. And before that (i.e. in the Middle Ages), the Christian religion considered ANY interest charged to be usury, and therefore a sin, because you were getting money for nothing. Just something to think about.

Getting back on topic ....

Noticed an oddity, maybe not a bug. The Daily Challenge didn't count my Quiz of the Hour play. I am assuming that it's because it wouldn't count it until the next hour begins? I didn't wait to find out because it was the last hour of the evening (and wouldn't have scored until after midnight), and swapped it out. Just wondering if it is the case the hourly quizzes don't count in the Challenge until the next hour begins?
