When I go to the hourly and daily game pages, I'm unable to highlight "game notes". In the expert game the "upcoming" for future games won't let me click on that either. It's a recent problem, always worked before. There is no other place to find specifics for scoring on games.

Also, it would be nice if non-gold members could read a description about what the badges for gold members are about where all the challenges are listed. It might perk some interest to join.

thanks

About your second query I can say that non-gold members are not allowed to see the badges which are only for GM. Although I guess you can contact one of the GM for a rough sketch of the badge objectives.

Aren't you allowed to see the badge objectives? That's what I thought. I do agree it will be an added incentive to upgrade.

If you want to know the objectives (or tell me the answers to the Riddle and the Winner Takes It All!)of any specific badge/let, I'm more than happy to answer.

On my (a GM) profile page, a mouse roll-over of a displayed badge offers a description of the requirements for that badge. Does that not work for non-GMs? If so, it should be added to the benefits list for being a GM. See:

Non-GM people can see the badge (or mini-badge) descriptions if they roll over it in someone's profile. However, it would take a while to find someone who has that badge or mini-badge, since we can't even see the list of who has won it.

This might get around that. Go to the Level Challenges page, the challenges for over Level 100 and link to one of the Centurion's profiles. Most of them have tons of the badges on their profiles.

Thanks for posting that, Tim! As far as I know, the ones I don't have aren't exclusively GM badges, so anyone who cares to look should be able to find out what you need to do to earn each badge. A lot of hard work, for some of them, and a bit of luck for many of them too.

For the first question, you can't click on "Upcoming" or "Game Notes". You just mouse over and read the message.

For the second, as people you can either check it out on the profile of someone who has it, or go to the corresponding game and check out the list of badges there.

You can also check out all the full badges here: http://www.funtrivia.com/mybadges.cfm

Description of badges also appear on "The Buzz" from time to time.

In fact, looking at "The Buzz" is how I found what the Riddle was before I even became a Gold Member, so I had even more time to figure out what the answer to the Riddle.
