I dont get this.. how do you complete quests?

#102 Posted by DaRaxor (33 posts) -

Ah nice idea, yet more things for me to get addicted to :P
 
Well done :)

To be honest I am not happy what this quest thing is doing to the site. Its slowing it down massively, bringing in massive spam, And I am unable to view older videos because of a bug.
 
 
If I could have one request. All quests that have to do with posting in the forums should just be removed and no more made.

Yes please. I did the quite obvious one (Ghost Writer) and didn't understand what the hell that attach to the forum thing meant - I thought I had to do it to get the achievment (it didn't pop up because of the site lag). Therefore, a mod got angry and pointed me here to read the big bold text.

can we please have a quest board so i can block it? its annoying to see people posting for their required quests and asking for help.
 
its not like the forums are stagnant at all, in fact, its usually pretty active.
 
considering your tagline "not pissing off the internet since 2007" i would hope you can take this suggestion into consideration
 
thanks :)

Does anybody know which podcast the dude in the secret quest of Music Appreciation 101 has appeared on?

Can we flag those countless "quest help" threads, too? I'd have blast flagging the shit out of them.

if the search function worked here at Giantbomb the quests wouldn't be such a pain in the ass.

Go ahead.

@Sin4profit: Yeah I have definitely noticed while working through some of the quests that the search doesnt work as well as one would wish

I gotta say, now that there is a Quest board and General and OT have been cleaned up, I don't hate this new feature anymore.  As long as I can choose to ignore it and actually be able to do just that, I am fine with it.  Good work GB staff at fixing the clutter and chaos.

I'm still just really annoyed by the bar at the bottom. I wish there was an option to get rid of it. I don't mind the quest system, I don't use it so it doesn't bother me, but man I really hate that bar.

#114 Posted by siderinc (56 posts) -

great feature :)

You can block  DIV[id="userbar"] in the AdBlocker of your choice. This also works with Chrome using the AdBlock extension by gundlach. The obvious downside is that you are completely loosing access to PMs and stuff, since the top bar is gone for good.

Yeah, I still want to be able to access my messages and stuff but having it blocked off a lot of the time, especially after refreshing to see if I have any new messages and/or to juggle the newer forums topics up to the top, is pretty annoying. Do you know if there is a way in Chrome to disable the loading bar at the bottom? The one that tells which URL the browser is loading?

According to my research, you can't disable it, since it's a security feature. It clashes awfully with the user bar though because it's rendered inside the window on top of any content when hovering over a link. Unfortunately, that's by design. Also, it's not very secure after all.

Is there a way to see if other users completed certain quests? Because I get the feeling some quests aren't working. I mean, there was one page that I needed to use google to get to it, the search wasn't finding it!

#119 Posted by KingBroly (1645 posts) -

Yeah, there should definitely be some kind of viewable leaderboard for Quests to see who completed what the fastest.

#120 Posted by IVIGAM3RIVI (21 posts) -

So does anyone know who creates the quest icon images? They are a member of the community and for the life of me I can't find this person.

She's Turbo_Toaster and she's a moderator.  I'm not sure why you're so desperate to find her, though, unless it's for the already expired Limited Edition Quest.
#123 Posted by INV2 (263 posts) -
@FluxWaveZ:  yeah, I just like work and wanted to add her to my favorites list.
#124 Posted by slilley (20 posts) -

This is the single best thing I have ever seen put onto a website.  It keeps the users coming back and I have found myself on this site for long periods of time, just trying to get quests.
 
Keep up the good work!

I am a big fan of the quest system, haven't looked at this forum before now and I find that the hints here make things really obvious in most cases. But that will probably just mean I continue to not visit this forum.

Yeah good idea, tired of stumbling across 'hints' that completely ruin the question

For a moment there I thought that they were coming back

Redundant thread is redundant.

@yojimbo Don't bump old threads like this, we're just going to lock them. If you want to contact the staff, send them a PM. Also, might be worth reading the forum rules.
