Others have told me there are epic badgelets showing up for other winners.
Is this just a delay? or is my completing the epic challenge not noted?
Windswept


Is this an example of the one that is impossible to get because the tally comes out after the epics are awarded?

Fixed Windswept. The scoring checker forgot to check that epic last night. Should be fixed from here on out.

"Brain twist and mixed multi-author quizzes do not count. You may take quizzes you have not played within the past 30 days."

Might I suggest changing "You may take quizzes" to "You may retake quizzes" so that it matches the other challenges with the same phrase?

Doesn't that imply that you've had to have already taken the quizzes to get them counted this time? Wouldn't "take or retake" be the appropriate verbage?

Not really. The text would be "you may retake" not "you have to retake". The latter would imply that while the former wouldn't. "You may retake" means that you have the option to retake.

Kaddarsgirl only posted the last half of the challenge req. as well. The first part asks you to play so-and-so many quizzes in a particular section or with a specific guideline. Adding the word 'take' again would be redundant.

OOO Thanks Terry laugh (I shall carefully refrain from pointing in the direction of any of my own quizzes that would now benefit, oh yes I shall...:D )

I was saving my credits for the '10 a day', however, I foolishly clicked on the 'spend 9 credits for a new challenge', just to see how it worked.

Curiosity sure got the better of me, it gave me a new challenge immediately! C'est la vie, I shan't be doing that again lol

But that's the only way to get an Epic, so heads you win, tails you win. It all works out in the end.

I wasn't interested in getting an Epic at the moment I clicked, as it was nearly bedtime. I got a 'complete a new quiz within 20 minutes of it going on line', alas no new quizzes since I clicked and am now late to bed frown

It has been a learning curve...next time I click, it'll be very early in my day, so I can devote more time to the challenge. I just didn't expect a new challenge immediately, I thought there may have been an explanation of the credits there, a bit like the 'challenge swap', where it gives you the option to use the ability after you have clicked.

I had the Twin challenge today and we managed to get the same score and have the green check. Does that mean I can't play anymore today?

If you have the check, you can play whatever you want-- you've won the challenge.

No. I'm pretty sure it just means you don't need to worry about that challenge anymore. Sort of like if you have a challenge that says "Be #1 in any hourly game in your division" it does not mean once you are #1, you can't play any more hourly games in future hours.

EDIT: Kyle beat me to it.

Just want to say that I'm thoroughly enjoying the new challenges, some of which really stretch me in areas I'm not so comfortable, but so far it's all good:)

Terry and Wes (+?)thanks so much for all of the work this has entailed and for your speedy help in sorting out the bugs ~ much appreciated.

Thanks Terry and all the others involved for the successful introduction of yet another wonderful feature of Funtrivia. The idea is brilliant and will keep everyone entertained for a long time.

The number of posts reflects the interest members have in this new feature. It must have been a busy week for you and the team.

I really enjoy playing the Daily Challenge and it's my first port of call when I log on to see what I need to do that day.

Great work!

I read in the FAQ that "Completing an epic challenge will not exclude it from later selections". That will certainly make it progressively more difficult to obtain the Totally Epic badge as you accumulate flags. If getting an epic with a buy has fairly low odds alone, getting the last one you need out of 8 in addition would seem to be quite a long shot. Am I missing something?

Not really. Some badges are difficult to obtain.

Re

It means (surely?) "You may ONLY take quizzes you have not played within the past 30 days"

A suitable text change would be: "Quizzes you have played within the past 30 days do not count!"


Unless the "not" is a typo?

Does it mean "You may re-take quizzes as long as you have not played them within the last 30 days?"

I made that assumption too and got caught on my first purchase. All I can say is that it only took one click to learn to be careful with my credits, lol!

Not a bug but a question, if I may:

Of the various challenges that are mini-scavenger hunts (specifically, where a list of quizzes is provided in the challenge question), are the quizzes included randomised as well

BTW, I got the 3 Ps one today and was quite taken by it. Very creative!

I received this as a Medium Challenge:
Play our Quick Quiz and bank at least 16 correct questions.
None yet. Incomplete



I banked over 40 correct questions. Could someone please check into it?
Thanks

Emma,

are you sure you have actually banked (converted to points) those questions? You need to do that before it will count and it's quite easy to miss that final click.

Sorry if this is a repeated question, but I don't see my earlier query here.
I have definitely completed the required Daily quizzes to total 7. I even did them all twice and three times to make sure, and I have not received my mini-challenge badge for completing 7 daily quizzes.
What am I missing here?
Your help is appreciated.

Thank you; you were correct, I forget to hit the convert to points button.
Again, thanks for all you do. It is appreciated.
