"Do NOT post the answer outside of the main thread." - what exactly does it mean? Could you give an example? Is it related only to "quest" topics?
Look before you post!
Before you post a how to thread or a question about the daily quest, LOOK to see if someone else has already created a thread. Having 16 threads on the same topic clutters the forum and pushes other topics (that aren't duplicates) down the list. Duplicates can be locked, deleted and/or nuked for negative ARP (at the discretion of mods)
Do NOT post the answer outside of the main thread.
We have had to delete threads and comments for posting answers outside of the main thread. Going forward, they won't be deleted, they will be nuked for -10 ARP (plus you'll also lose whatever ARP you'd earned from CG before a mod happened upon it.)
Limit 2 Quest topics per user per week.
If your topic is first to post (based on time-stamps) it still becomes the official topic all others will be removed or locked when we notice them.
But there will be a max of 2 daily quest topics per user per week (past 7 days). If you pass the 2 per week limit your topic will be removed to give others a chance.
1x 7 days ago (Last Fridays quest)
1x 3 days ago
1x today (This Fridays quest) <- will be removed
*Disclaimer* If a daily quest topic shows unique effort even tho its not the “official” topic it may be allowed to stay. We want to reward users who show creatively and not just after the easy ARP.
Where are the old/normal Daily Quests?
There has been some recent developments, and for the time being, the normal Daily and Weekly quests will be for US only. I want to apologize to everyone. This is not something I wanted to see happen. I do not have any timeline of when they will return. This will probably be for a long time. It's not fair to you guys, and I want you to know, I'm trying to figure out options for keeping it in place.
For the time being, Global will be offered the old-school Daily quests for ARP. I will try and get some of the fun weekend ones back for you guys at least. This sucks. I'm sorry.
TL;DR back in the olden days everyone got mini games to play. Now just the US and CA get them while the rest of the world get riddles/task to perform.
So you have issues with the Weekly Quests. Tell us more...
As you guys have been aware, we have been changing up the weeklies for the last couple weeks. As usual, everyone here loves all the changes /sarcasm. I kid of course, but let's talk shop. We don't pretend to know all the right answers and we are constantly trying new things to see how they are received (and even more prevalent, how they are being exploited). We haven't settled into any one format, and will probably continue to change up the routine for the foreseeable future until we find that perfect mix. While these games are not the most entertaining things in the world, we do want to use them in a way that better engages the community with each other. They do take a lot of time to create, and some weeks, its been all for not when a simple error on our part or a lucky player figures things out instantly. We want to balance it being difficult, but solvable, which is almost impossible to do with the wide range of members. Some of you will find them impossible and wait for others to solve, while others will find them to easy and not even bother.
So with all this being said, we are opening up this thread to your complaints and suggestions. What has worked for you? What hasn't? What do you want to see changed and what would make you more willing to work with others to solve the puzzles instead of just waiting for the answers? No idea is bad (I lie, there always horrible ideas) and we want to hear from everyone. So hit me with you best shot. Fire away.
