Salami - sorry. The way badges are coded doesn't allow us an easy way to do this. You may however all send your unwanted epics my way smile

Lol, I never said they were unwanted.... I just thought it'd be cool to see how many times they were completed at III. wink

Not that I could ever pull it off once with the difficulty level.... Let alone more than that. :P

I used the gold member switch a challenge and it switched the wrong challenge on me. Can that be fixed?

I played Word Wizard, made a seven-letter word, and then went to look at my Daily Challenges, where I discovered that one challenge was to make a word of at least five letters, but it's showing as incomplete. Is this a bug or a design feature?

One of the first errors mentioned in this thread was this. It is a bug.

It happened to me the other day when I played my word during the ten minutes or so aat the start of the day when the challenges are being set up. Clearly I played the word minutes before the challenge had been issued. When I have received that challenge later in the day after a purchase, it does count earlier plays. I have made a mental note not to play my word before checking my challenges.

Today I got an easy challenge to play any quiz with a title beginning with the Letter C and score atleast 3 correct. I played a quiz on Codename Kids Next Door and got more than 3 correct on flash mode but the challenge didnt regard this as complete. Something is Wrong!

There are several quizzes on Codename Kids Next Door that begin with a quotation mark "Codename - Kids Next Door..."). If the quiz you took is one of these it will not count. There are at least two quizzes without the quotation mark that would have counted. (The mode you played in would not matter for this challenge.)

The challenge didn't specify what mode to play.

I played the one with the quotation marks. It was about Number 3. Why don't the quotation mark quiz titles count?

It is going by character recognition - the initial character in the title is not C but instead the character ". It is a minor glitch that can catch you out - luckily there are plenty of quizzes that begin with a C so you can easily find another that will qualify you.

Terry said that he made it so it won't look at quotes. Therefore, "Codename - Kid Next Door" should work.

He also said there are some that wouldn't count, for unforeseen circumstances... I was under the impression it was for a character not recognized... For instance, if a quiz started with "/".

But I agree with Buddy; it should be fixed and quotes don't matter. Peculiar.

Hi - I have a Difficult challenge today, asking me to play 10-question tough or difficult quizzes, getting at least seven right on five in a row. I failed to do this, but somehow still got credit? Probably shouldn't report this... smile but thought you'd like to know.

Sometimes I get a twin challenge but till the end of the day no twin is selected for me. This results me in wasting a difficult challenge. Any similar issues?

If you don't get a twin (or partner for either the Nemesis or the I'm the Expert challenge) then you should automatically get the 3 credits. In that case, you should have won.

Sometimes you have to go back to look at "Yesterday's Challenges" to see the credits show up on your Challenges page.

That has never happened to me once! You say "sometimes"... so this has happened to you more than once?

If it's case of no nemesis partner being named until late in the day, you can still spend your day racking up points, they will still count.

And you have checked the "Yesterday's Challenges" link? And seen the red X ?

And did you play enough to meet the requirement in Twin that at least one of the players must have 500 points? That game looks at all your points for the day, so you can get them lined up before the Twin is allocated.

You misunderstood the display. It first lists the quizzes you played (whether good enough or not), then the categories you passed (Television, with a green check mark). Finally, it gives the assessment for the complete challenge: Incomplete. (You only have one category yet).

(It might be better to have a line break between the category list and the "Incomplete". I can see how this is confusing when you have exactly one category).
