Another suggestion: a proofreading pass on the R4G site. Below, two examples of why this is needed:

Should be StainsShould be Stains

Here's something that I think needs to be addressed: some of the Spanish version activities give fewer points than do their English language counterparts. (Wha-?)

 

Case in point: the Vitamin Supplement quiz (https://www.aarp.org/health/drugs-supplements/info-07-2013/vitamin-supplements-quiz.html#quest1) just gave me 525 points for working the English version but only 450 points for completing the Spanish version. This also happened yesterday with other English/Spanish activities, but I failed to document it. (So this isn't the only case of the Spanish version awarding fewer points)

And I think this is weird ... there is no navigational link to this community from the drop down menu when on the Spanish version of the Rewards for Good site. To post this I had to first go to the English version of the site from an English language activity. I could not navigate here from the Spanish activity referenced. Hm.

An additional comment: tax-aide locator.

(https://secure.aarp.org/applications/VMISLocator/searchTaxAideLocations.action)

 

It is coming up on time for that activity to be reset, too.

Tried all three in Firefox, IE , and Chrome. Tried again, and Rent/Buy calculator finally awarded points in firefox. Nothing on the other two.

Here's another addendum (I bow my head in shame for not getting it right the first time):

 

The following quizzes also didn't rest (and it would be lovely if they did so!):

 

Quiz: St. Patrick’s Day
Quiz: Test your knowledge of the Electoral College
Quiz: U.S. presidents trivia

 

That's a wrap (for now) ...

@AARPTeri Plus one!

 

AND: can they be prodded, please, to return the (numerous) weekly and monthly tasks that were, in early December, removed for repair?  This would be much appreciated.

So, I did a quick runthrough of all the "Take These Once a Year" quizzes this evening. Obviously, I have no life!

 

It was welcome to see that so many of the quizzes renewed at the turn of the new year, and like many others who watch and contribute to this forum, I've been busy earning my 5,000 points per day; however, there are a few glitches. And among them:

 

Quizzes in the Take These Once a Year" that didn't rollover and have the "already did this one"

badge: badge.jpg

 

Here's the list of English language quizzes that didn't reset:

MONEY

Quiz: Can I reuse this?
Quiz: Can you spot a good bargain?
Quiz: Credit and debt
Quiz: Do I still need to pay this debt?
Quiz: Elder Financial Abuse
Quiz: What's your money IQ? Credit and Savings
Quiz: Will it hurt my credit?

BE IN THE KNOW

Quiz: Test your knowledge of the Electoral College
Quiz: U.S. presidents trivia
Quiz: Car maintenance
Quiz: The generation game
Quiz: Presidential campaign slogans
Quiz: Supreme Court trivia
Quiz: What makes a community livable?

 

In the In Espagnol category, the following quizzes won't award points because they have no badges whatsoever:

 

¿Cuál es tu coeficiente intelectual financiero? (No Badge)
¿Cuánto sabe sobre los préstamos de día de pago? (No Badge)
¿La diferencia entre una cuenta 401(k) y una cuenta IRA? (No Badge)

 

It is my hope that you can use your superpowers to get the digital team on board with fixing (NOT DELETING!) these quizzes so that we can remain happy, busy and fulfilled quiz-meisters. (Again, I apparently have no life!)

 

Hope the new year is treating you and your fellow AARPies well.

 

PS: To all the other forum gurus, if I've missed any non-working wonders, please feel free to contribute. And if I've erred, I'm happy to be (gently) corrected. Bye!
