It's for 50 mini badges won right? I don't know if anyone else has had an issue with this but I know I have over 50 and the badge still eludes me. Any thoughts on how I, or who I contact to make it happen?

Strange, you most definitely have 50 challenges, and it most definitely isn't there.

It doesn't specify whether you win the badge automatically or if you must go back to the page to claim it. Have you tried returning to the badge page to "claim" it?

Yeah, you have to actually go back to the challenge page to get the badge. It is not automatically awarded.

I would have thought that if a badge had not been awarded, then the first thing a person would do would be to go back to the challenge and double check the requirements, which would count as returning to the page to claim it.

Or is that too logical?

I have found quite a lot of people unaware that the badge is even there.

When I check a profile out to see who I am playing with or against if I see they have 50 mini's and are level 75 or higher I normally send a Personal Note to ask if they are aware of the badge and where to go to claim it.

Since they are listed under a different section than the rest of the badges, those level badges are difficult to notice. There are tons of players who could have a few more badges if they became aware of the little section. smile

Sheesh Salami, it's not exactly a secret lol.

Click on "challenges" (in the upper right corner of the home page, beside your username)

Click INCOMPLETE on the line that says "sort/name/incomplete. This will show you all the Normal badges you don't have credit for yet. Click on each of them, since some of them are only awarded if you "check in".

You also (especially if you are are a Gold Member) need to click on "challenges" and then click on "Level Challenge Bonuses" and then click "incomplete" to do the same thing as above.

Far too logical, naturally. wink

Also - Rossian has a hundred minibadges, and is recognized as the first winner of the badge at the Challenge page, but the badge doesn't show up on rossian's profile.

It doesn't look the same as on the challenge page, however. It is all squashed up and fit in right next to the Challenge Crusher badge...

Yes, it's definitely there, but I had to search for it myself. It looks as if it's going to be one of the large badges, but it is actually a standard size. I'm happy to have achieved it no matter what it looks like.

Thanks for checking for me, people.

Oh, now I see what you mean! Yes, the illustration on the Challenges page does appear to be a mega-badge, but on Rossian's profile it is an ordinary badge.

Perhaps that is something Terry could fix...?

Hey!
Guess What!
I've got another badge!
I tiptoed my way through all the smuggery and I now have a Challenge Crusher badge. I don't mind being the dimmest of llamas because the gleanings are so tasty. :P
Thank you for the illumination.

Dippo, it only works your way if the player knows there's a badge.
I'm more a serendipitous finder of badges, wifflin' through the tulgy woods and burbling. laugh

Can someone tell me what it looks like? I'm sure I've got it, but...I'd like to check since obviously not everyone who has earned it has gotten it. With IE 10 I can no longer run the cursor over the badge/badgelet to see what it is or I would have done that first. I, also, took Jakeroo's suggestion and clicked on all the challenges that showed up after I clicked on "uncompleted".

Thanks!

Lee

You have it, Lee. It says "50" on it. It's at the bottom of the badges on your profile page, I just looked. smile

Thanks a lot, kaddarsgirl. I don't IE10, but I'm not comfortable with Chrome, most likely because I no longer like changes of any kind. Of that age, you know.

Perhaps Terry could resize the Challenge Mastery (100 minibadges, requiring level 150 - only achieved by 1 person so far) badge to what I assume by its appearance on the Challenges page is what it was meant to be - a larger badge?
