HOW IT WORKS: "CATEGORY PROFICIENCY BADGES"

When one first begins playing Sploofus, it is extremely easy to have lots of badges because you have only been asked a few questions in each category. New players only have to answer 3 or 4 questions correctly in a particular category to show 100% proficiency (60% is even easier).

Veteran players who have been served hundreds of questions in each category are at a severe disadvantage to the new players.

To solve this problem, and allow newer player's badges to carry the same significance as a veteran player's badge, the accuracy percentage is adjusted depending on how long you have been playing Sploofus.

Here is the minimum percentage cutoff for diplaying badges, depending on how long you have been Sploofusing:

Less than 2 weeks: 100% accuracy in category
2-4 Weeks: 97% minimum accuracy in category
4-6 Weeks: 94% minimum accuracy in category
6-8 Weeks: 91% minimum accuracy in category
8-10 Weeks: 88% minimum accuracy in category
10-12 Weeks: 85% minimum accuracy in category
12-14 Weeks: 82% minimum accuracy in category
14-16 Weeks: 79% minimum accuracy in category
16-18 Weeks: 76% minimum accuracy in category
18-21 Weeks: 73% minimum accuracy in category
21-25 Weeks: 70% minimum accuracy in category
25-29 Weeks: 67% minimum accuracy in category
29-33 Weeks: 64% minimum accuracy in category
33-37 Weeks: 60% minimum accuracy in category
37-41 Weeks: 55% minimum accuracy in category
42 Weeks or older: 50% minimum accuracy in category

Hi there-
I seem not have any badges displayed Can't find them anywhere. I've looked on my profile page, interests and hobbies, trivia QOTD page, all of 'em. Is it possible there's a glitch? And I'm sure I've answered a way high enough percentage to warrant them.
Any assistance would be much appreciated...Thanks!!!
Best wishes,
Bill

Having just looked at which categories I haven't even achieved 50%: Sports Soup and Music and Musicians, it does occur to me that there is a bias against non US players in these categories! There are always questions on US Football, Baseball, Basketball, Ice Hockey and even Nascar, but rarely on proper Football, Cricket, Rugby (Union or League) or F1 racing. (I know someone will protest about Snooker!). There also seems to be rather too many questions on Country and Western 'music' and other US based music. Any thoughts?
Andy.

How about making up some of those quizzes for us, Andy? Then YOU'll have the advantage!
