Is anyone willing to run a weekly game? I'd prefer you do around 10 screenshots a week, and I want you to put an end date for people to play. So basically, mimic how the forum games used to work.

I want to ensure that the system is handling this scenario correctly, both during the deadline, when you shouldn't be able to see if you got it right, and after, when people who missed the deadline should still be able to play, but not for credit toward the challenge.

I'm afraid that would break our budget.

When guessing, you can now lock when selecting your guess. There is now also a button on a sub-challenge screenshot to go directly to another screenshot in the same sub-challenge. I will add a similar button to non sub-challenge screenshots, just need to write the logic.

I've been focusing on sub challenges, I'll now shift to non-sub challenges and overall game issues. I think on the main challenge page, some sort of filters are needed. I'm thinking of allowing the following filter toggles:

Hard
Medium
Old Movies

Turning Hard off would hide any challenge with less than a 50% correct guesses, turning off medium would hide any challenge with less than 75% correct guesses, and turning off Old Movies would hide anything released more than 20 years ago.

Thoughts on filters?

I am kinda just guessing at everything.

Didn't know if that was a bad thing

Also, Dave H (David?) is going bananas with all the uploads

But his screenshots are easy. Just think of all the crappy movies he always gives an A or A+ and all LawFarrellRhysMeyersMcGregorandnowRedfordtoo movies and you will get 90% of them for sure.

I can't get any of David's (well very few), I just haven't seen the films.

I did every challenge in Andrew's "Guess the Movie" ... I got 4 right.

Recurring themes in the images are Mel Brooks, Adam Sandler and Jonah Hill.

Post subject:  Re: Screenshot Challenge - FEW CHANGES MADE

I made a few updates today:

- The site was starting to run slow as guesses piled up (over 2500 guesses so far), so I did some performance optimization and it's now zipping along.
- The "See All Results" link on the Challenges page now works.
- On the Leaders page, you can now click on any player to see their "See All Results" page.

Do we see which movie was which screenshot after the deadline or are those gone forever and we'll never know?

I'm not sure I fully follow.

You can see all your results by going to the leaders page, and clicking your name. You can also see your results in any sub-challenge by going to the sub-challenge leader page and clicking your name. Once on the results page, you can click any specific result to go to that challenge's page.

If you have an idea for a way this could be improved, let me know. It helps if you explain what you want to see, I can try and find a way to make it available.

No, I wanted to see what the screenshots were I didn't answered.

Well, you get 7 days to guess. During those 7 days they show as available challenges. After the 7 days, they will show as incorrect on your results pages.

I'm getting internet next Tuesday, so I'll be able to play this a little more.

It's amazing how many movies I haven't seen compared to you guys. I love it when I get it right and I've never seen the movie though.

Post subject:  Re: Screenshot Challenge - YES! SOMEONE IS WORSE THAN ME!

What I dislike is that I cannot see my own challenges. I don't mean that I want to play my own challenges, because that would be cheating, but I want to have a list of them for clicking to see how everyone else is getting on with them. Currently, it just says 'Recent Challenges' and lists five. How about someone like David who has created about 21,345,976 challenges so far..?

Yeah, I'll be addressing that shortly.

Great! I'm beginning to really enjoy BOS, by the way.

Author:  Eagle [ Fri Feb 21, 2014 6:21 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Screenshot Challenge - YES! SOMEONE IS WORSE THAN ME!

Thanks! BOS's biggest issue will be growing the user base. I wish there was a way I could get the users on box office's forums to know it existed, I feel they would all enjoy it as well.

Post subject:  Re: Screenshot Challenge - YES! SOMEONE IS WORSE THAN ME!

Well, all the current members here at WOKJ should be able to help with that. Just by posting it on each Facebook page should increase the users substantially, and I'm sure that people will do that (if asked) because it's not a time consuming task. Some might also post it over on BO.com's forum. A campaign just needs to be started. When I have access, I will help out.
