O.K., Folks, here we are.  To repeat: on June 5th, word was  ["...the technical team ... were able to reproduce the issue and this is being scheduled for repair in the coming weeks."] 

 

Ahem.... June 5th to August 20th.  Let's see, according to my calendar, tomorrow it will be eleven weeks.

Now, I don't want to get too snarky or technical about this, so I suppose we could say that eleven weeks still falls under the category of "coming weeks," but, COME ON, FOLKS, THE TRIZZLE GAME TROPHY ROOM

IS STILL BROKEN 13 WEEKS SINCE I FIRST REPORTED THIS PROBLEM    ON THE 19TH OF MAY.

 

 

Just sayin....

Thanks, Cat. I agree there are a lot more interesting things to do. I just like playing for a while in the morning, then either read or walk during the day. Thanks for your efforts to get this fixed though.

DD: I've simply stopped playing.  Every other week or so I take a look in and click on the so-called "Trophy Room," see that it's not fixed, and go on to do other things with my life.  As you say, it's no fun if there's no progress to be made. 

 

On the other hand, I'm winding up writing letters to friends, re-reading (the annotated) Flatland, and doing other more appropriate things for "elders" such as ourselves to do.  I've even found a lot more time to log into Lumosity and play real "brain games."  (If you haven't heard about this NPR sponsor, check them out.)

 

So, maybe it's for the best.  Please post when/if they ever fix the Trophy Room, and I might check back in.

Will the trophy room ever get fixed?  It's not much fun playing if you can't make any progress.

Dear AARP Lynne:

 

I have to vent.  You posted an encouraging reply way back on June 5th that ["...the technical team ... were able to reproduce the issue and this is being scheduled for repair in the coming weeks."] 

 

According to my calendar, that's five weeks ago.  I guess I kinda thought "coming" meant "a few," like, two or three.  Whereas it's been 6.5 weeks (i.e., 5/24) since you initially brought this issue to their attention.

 

Now, I'm no computer genius, nor am I a programmer, but I've worked in offices long enough to think that:

a) they (Arkadium) are dragging their feet because hosting a game on the AARP website is probably not a money-maker for them;

b) they only make money if people get sucked into buying coins; and

c) if this game EVER worked (when they first uploaded it to AARP games), then it should be a simple matter of re-booting it so that the trophy room works.

 

I realize that this is a "first world" problem, and that there are many other games on many sites to be played.  However, it is beneath the AARP's level of responsibility to continue to do business with a company which obviously is either completely calleous in regard to their errors, OR they're incompetent.  Either way, I'm extremely disappointed in their scheduling efforts.

Dear SusieC51:

 

Not a dumb question at all.  Go down to my first post (i.e., the one on June 27th which started this thread) and, in the third paragraph, if you click on the blue hi-lited word "HERE", you'll be diverted to my original thread, "Trizzle game trophy room broken".  I hope this helps.

You are apparently great at this, I don't even know where the Symptom Checker is located! Were you a teacher, or just really good at this site? I'm impressed! Thank you! At least I am trying.


@SusieC51 Eh, I just have a natural ability with puzzles. Smiley Happy I look at the consistently broken, but not always in the same way Rewards for Good program as a puzzle: how do I get the system to award me all my points today? This quest has led me to discover hidden and unspoken ways to earn points. I've detailed them in other threads. I'll give you the links in a minute, but first here's a link to 'all' the R4G health tools. Some give points, some have been broken over a year. You'll learn which is which with a click or two. Smiley Happy  http://www.aarp.org/health/health_tools/

 

The way I get to the Talix sponsored health tools, which were moved off the main points earning page for unknown reasons well over a year ago, is by clicking the Drug Compare health tool. See that list of health tools over on the right of the image? The Pill Identifer gives 75 points on Sunday (or once  week if you don't play on Sunday) and the Health Encyclopedia hasn't given me points in over a year, but the rest of those are links to tasks that give 6, 15, 30 points a day. Weeeee!  I discovered this by accident one day. Smiley Happy

OK, now for the links to Rewards for Good threads with points earning tips: https://search.aarp.org/gss/everywhere?q=r4g%20points%20earn

 

Hint: I tag each tip post with R4G earn points. You can find past and future tip posts by searching for that tag. Smiley Happy

 

Have fun and earn oodles of points!

I complained because it says members receive double points on quizzes, I am a member and have been for over 15 years now. No double points unless you join or renew - I am joined, it says my name right at the top; I don't need to renew until February 2018. So, why am I not getting my double points, what's the secret? If anyone knows, please let me know (if I can find your answer)! This should be so much easier to navigate this blogging area and actually get the points for members! Very frustrating. PS sometimes my responses post 2 or more times in a row, making me look like a complete idiot!


@SusieC51  I bet you have been receiving your extra member points all along. To check my thesis, I created a temporary non-member dummy account and went over to Rewards for Good, and opened the Symptom Checker task because I know by heart the points earned for this daily task. The badge, as you can see, offered the phantom non-member a mere 4 points to complete this daily task. As a member, I receive a whopping 6 points a day for clicking my way through this particular bit of tedium. Smiley Happy Please note: The system offers members 50% more points, rather than double points.

 

Non-members get 4 points for searching symptoms daily ...Non-members get 4 points for searching symptoms daily ...

 

 

Here now, a look at the points I earned today for using the Symptom Checker:
