Please help me decipher what exactly this means

Requirements for badge state:

"Play against the entirety of the FunTrivia player base (to not make it too easy, we require at least 100 participants) in the average mixed-topic game."

But I don't get the 'everyone' bit. Classes show:

(1-7) (8-20) (21-30) (31-47) (48-61) (62-200) (1000-1000) (All)

I won last hours (62 - 200) category and according to the lists I also won the 'All' category.

I'm presuming the (1000-1000) category is the reason I didn't win the badge but who are these people? We don't have anyone with levels higher than 1000!

And if they are included shouldn't they show up in the 'All' list. Pure logic says that whoever wins the 'All' categories should win the badge.

I would like to go for this badge but need to know who I'm up against.

Thanks

They are champs. They're not listed when you click the 'All' tab (probably an oversight), but they do count.

Hope that helps!

Thanks Malik,

I thought it might be something like that but wanted to make sure I knew what I was doing.

Any chance that someone could tweak it to include these in the 'All' division.

Would be nice to see all the scores against each other to know where you are (and if you have any hope!)

Here's what I have in the header area for the Mixed Trivia hourly game home page:

Level Divisions: [ 0-7 ] [ 8-20 ] [ 21-30 ] [ 31-47 ] [ 48-61 ] [ 62-200 ] [ Champions ] (All)


besides the Champs/1000 level difference, I see the first level as different too. Where I have 0-7, you have 1-7.

I am using a PC browser (IE). Are you using a mobile browser?

When you click on "all" for last hour (which lists 1-7), it doesn't include "1000-1000". When you click on "all" for the main screen (which is the current hour and lists 0-7), it includes "Champions".

On the last hour screen "all" should link to override=1-1000 instead of override=1-180. Also when you click "last hour's scores" it goes to your division's scores instead of the division you're looking at; apparently the levlow and levhigh stuff doesn't work.

If you're in the champion division in Word Wizard and FMI and click on "last hour's scores" it goes to your level group instead of the champion division; presumably this is linked to the fact that when you click on these games from the main page it does the same.

Fixed "last hour" to include champs in "All", and also title "Champs" correctly.

I should have checked this too before I sent my earlier note but now see that "All" doesn't include the champions on Piece of Cake either for previous hour's score. Your work is never done! Thanks for looking after WW. smile

Well, since you asked... shocked

How about a Team scores button on the Mind Melt and Pot of Gold game pages? And a separate Team scores button for the hard/champ division on Who Am I (that one might be tricky to do). And perhaps a note on who won the weekly PoG badge on Last Week's Weekly Scores so that we can all offer congratulations.

That oughta do it for now. You're a regular whirling dervish tonight Terry!

Thanks a lot!

While you are fixing things, please include an option for a front page that looked like the one April 2012 before you starting "tweaking". Each successive change has added to my frustration, and now I find the front page extremely difficult to read and use.

You have a lot of nerve.

My requests for changes and about bugs have frequently been overlooked. And yet a couple of people complain about their tablet use and voila! Instant fix. So excuse me if I'm a little frustrated that I can't even use the front page now.

I didn't see a lecture. Just a fact of your posts. You seem to demand and complain a lot without any "gracious" responses. How about some positive posts? Woohoo, yeah for the good things that are here in so many parts of the site! Yay for the quick fixes for so many issues! Great job for the hard work from Terry and the Mods! Boo to posting the same complaint on multiple threads! Boo to being ungrateful for so much greatness that is here! Yes, I dare, lol.


ETA: The initial post was simply "How dare you lecture me." Just responding to the actual pre-edited post.

No, I think you have a lot of nerve. Your demands are unbearable and you offer no thanks to anyone who tries to offer assistance. Not very gracious of you.

If you have something to say, say it privately. There's no need for personal attacks on the forum, whatever you may think of my request.

I am certainly grateful for Terry's hard work on this web site in general.

I'm certainly not going to pretend, however, to be grateful for the increase of my level of frustration on this site, which has been growing steadily since the first interface changes were made back in the spring. I requested then for the option to have the old interface and was ignored then, too.

You can catch more flies with honey than vinegar. Not sure what that means except for why not be nice when you have the chance? Not personal, I am sure you are lovely. Your posts are not.

My first post in this thread was a matter-of-fact request for a change after Terry had asked, "any more?" -- meaning any more requests.

That you choose to interpret it as "rude" is something I cannot control.

Enough with the personal attacks. It is not appropriate in this forum.

I think it's time for people to step away from their keyboards and take a deep breath. Gracious is right about this not being appropriate here.

Let's get this thread back to its original purpose. Thanks smile

And Barbarini is right that a little gracious attitude and appreciation for the hard work is not misplaced. Making the same request and negative comments on multiple threads is not the way either. Thanks.

Yes, one more, if you please. Please include an option to have the front page use the interface and layout that was available in the early spring of 2012. The successive changes that have been made to the layout since April 2012 or thereabouts, although they seem to have improved the site for others, have increasingly made the site difficult for me to use. Thanks.

Then follow your own advice and stop making negative comments yourself, stop making personal attacks, and stop presuming to lecture others on how they should post. The last time I checked, you are not in charge of this forum.

If you continue to harass, lecture, bait, or criticize me, I will make a formal complaint.

If I have been inappropriate, it will be for an administrator to tell me, not you.

You have a perverse pleasure in baiting people. You remind me of people who presume to judge others and carry out public humiliation through cyber-bullying. Do not continue to bait me.

You have now posted 10 messages on a single issue, over 4 threads, over a 2 hour period. This is not the first time you have done this. Please stop spamming this forum.

If you have a technical issue, please use our feedback section of the site:

http://www.funtrivia.com/feedback.cfm

p.s. I think you'll find that people who post politely will have a far better chance of getting my attention. This principle works well for life in general.
