CATEGORY PROFICIENCY


In trolling through Sploofus profiles I note there's a disparity in the
category proficiency info listed (the boxes headed by a star). I have
seven. Geography isn't listed because, I assume, I exempted myself
from that. But world events isn't listed and I know I've answered
those questions in the past.

Others, I note, have even fewer of those little boxes. Does that mean
those people are answering only those TQoTD? (My unscientific
observation suggests vocabulary is a huge favorite, sometimes the
only listing for some people.)

Just curious. Lots of things on this site strike me as curious.

Thank you for this question, Foogs.

Since my initial paid membership here is ready for renewal, I would like to increase my comfort level with Sploofus and its special features.

I would also like to have this question answered.

Here's the official explanation of proficiency badges:

I'm not sure I understand the logic, but this is helpful. It explains
why I have no badge for world events; I'm under 50 percent. And as
somebody who has been using his showdown tokens, this is helpful
information. Thanks, Larry. And look out. I only need 63 billion
or so points to challenge.

Hey Foogs...
"Geography isn't listed because, I assume, I exempted myself from that"
I don't know if you answered any questions prior to expempting yourself from geography but, I have a sports soup badge.. answered a few before realizing I could exempt myself from 1 category. So I did, but my badge remains from oh so many moons ago

There might be something wrong with the proficiency badge scoring. After 42 weeks your page should reflect these badges after 50%, but mine only show up after 55%, seems they quit working at some point.
