Hello all you friendly Sploofussers--

Can anyone explain how the "Category Proficiency" emblems are assigned on your profile? I see some with 8 or 10 or more, some of which are fairly mediocre numbers, and some with only 1 or 2. I do quizzes and the daily question regularly and have only 2 emblems, probably my "best" areas. Just curious as to how the system assigns these things.

Also, I keep doing those word rounds, and getting better...but I never get a diamond or topaz or whatever those jewels are...what's up with that?

Thanks in advance to all. --Ron

Although I have a couple of proficiency emblems, I don't know at what point I crossed the threshold to earn them. I've been a member since early 2006, and only this summer begin to take my points seriously. My favorite is WordPuzzle, but I do enjoy WordRounds because of the occasional early morning opportunity to score big.

As for those nuggets, to me, they appear to be very rare gifts of grace from the Sploofus god. You just have to accept the opportunity when it comes out of the blue; don't be too shocked or scared to focus on scoring the 100% you need before time is up. If you are successful, you win mega points, and one of those coveted nuggets.

Some of the more knowledgeable, experienced players may have greater insights.

Happy sploofusing!

Hey Doc...forget all that bling - you write the best quizzes! It keeps my grey matter alive and kickin'. Bling is serendipitously bestowed when you least expect it. I'm near cardiac arrest when I see either a blue page or golden page on WR's/WWM's which is very seldom. I also manage to find a way to screw it up. Just tell those patients to cool their heels - ya gotta' go write a Sploofus quiz!

Kind words from an esteemed source. Thank you, ma'am.

I'm working on a new quiz but some days life is too full of other stuff.

And as the immortal Dottie remarked on life...

You might as well live!

I have been a member for almost 4 months. It has been explained to me that randomly 1 in 1,000 for WR a gold screen will appear with instructions. You have 120 seconds to get 100%. Do that and you get 100,000 pts and a gold disk next to your name. I have had the opportunity twice. The first time I got 90% and on the second time one of the dots on the answer must have disappeared, I got 9 questions out of nine and know the other questions was correct since it was a question that had appeared in WM. I have yet to be greeted by a blue screen. When you least expect it, it will appear. Best of luck.
