Just yesterday I had 5 subjects with badges, which I believe mean that we have correctly answered 66.7% or more of that category's questions. Today, I am down to just one category (and did not miss a question in the interim). Is this a new way of spotlighting our best category, or perhaps a glitch?

Several people have noticed losing badges. Will they be restored or has there been a change to the way badges are awarded?

The badges got messed up this afternoon about the same time that the drop-down menus disappeared and other strange things were happening. The drop-down menus are back to normal (on my computer anyway) but the badges are not.

I look at the badges of a person I am thinking about challenging as part of my decision to challenge. If the person has a lot of badges, I figure I am at a disadvantage and may wait until the boards change and pick someone else to challenge later.

I would like to know the Category Proficiency for myself (ahem, quite sad, I’ll tell you) and potential challengees. If everyone had all nine icons that you could mouse over and read, you could still show those with greater than 60% proficiency with a red star, and leave out the red star for those under 60%. Or whatever percentage Sploofus wants to pick.

Oh, and Kelly, the badges ARE too teeny to look good sewn on a jacket.

I have found that my one Vocabulary badge looks great on the cuff of my left sock!

My one category award dissapeared yesterday although I have not answered a question on that category in about 2 weeks.

I lost a few myself. Glad I wasn't the only one.

I was checking out the badges when I realized that now we have little ribbons showing for each EA quiz we have written. I do love all of this attention to details! Thanks, Sploof!

Improvements and new features are abounding. I've been watching Hot Wire for the new badge criteria. Hope it hasn't been forgotten in all the excitment.

The new rule for badges seems to be:

You get a badge for each TQTOD category in which you have at least 50% correct (it was formerly 60%), except for the badges deleted by the glitch in the new code.

SOme people now have more badges than before, some have less.

Dear Sploof, my badges are still messed up, 5 days later. We can't accurately pick folks to challenge with inaccurate badge info. I missed a Phy Sci TQOTD today, but my +80% Phy Sci badge was taken away - aargh!

Please advise the new system, or let us know when the situation will be fixed. This is my only complaint so far - I LOVE THIS SITE!
