Relax, its not that hard. Just check out this
tutorial that walk you through
the whole process.
You MUST be a member of the PogoAddiction Forum. Simply
complete any current challenge or "Timeless Challenge" and fill
out the Submissions Form. Please be sure to read the rules.
Also see: What are the rules?
Who? You or me? Its absolutely 100% FREE (to you). I do this
as an extra incentive to encourage game play on pogo, and I know what
its like to be a badge hog. Its been said that some people are now
"PogoAddiction Addicted." I guess the old phrase "How bad have you
got it?" is explained.
The entire site, the main site and this badge site costs me money on
a monthly basis as well as a lot of time. I maintain both sites by
myself (among others) and sometimes with Pogo that can be a challenge. I don't
request any kind of money from anyone. I am not here as a
business, but I do provide donation buttons on both site main pages, and
on the forum. These donations help me pay for the site, and
ultimately go back into improvements for the site, as well as future
rewards for members of the site.
The rules of participation can be found
You can do ANY of the "Timeless
Challenges" anytime you want. You may also do the current
challenges, which are located on the
Page. If you are new
review this page here.
You submit your challenges for badges by filling out the "Submission
Form". Be sure to fill out all of the information!
A screenshot is an image of your screen that you capture with a
screenshot program. In order for me to verify you completed
challenges I need a screenshot or multiple screenshots of your completed
tasks. Also see: Where can I get a screenshot program and
how do I use it?
I have provided on the site information about this topic which
can be found here.
You need to upload them
at a site like ImageShack or
Photobucket and copy
the "Show your Friends" or "Direct" link of each image and paste it in the correct
field of the "Submission Form".
The weekly challenges start every Friday morning at 10 am est.
This is subject to variation, but usually forewarning is posted in the
forum of any changes. Challenges end the following Thursday at 11:59 pm
Your badges will be located in your Badge Album. The badge
albums are located in your profile on the forum. Go your
and find the "PogoAddiction Badges" link on the left side menu.
That is your album!
Have you filled out the "Submission Form"?
If so, was it correct? If so, your badges
are awarded by no later than the FIRST FRIDAY following your submission.
(Generally requests are reviewed and added to your album within 12 to 24
hours). If you have not been awarded your badges by the
END of the FIRST
Friday after you submitted them, you need to IMMEDIATELY email
PM LittleOne on the forum
stating so. I will then look into it and get back with you on it.
Situations like those will be handled on a per case basis.
That's a very good question. I clearly state on the
http://www.badges.pogoaddiction.com main page that "These in NO way have any affiliation
with Pogo.com. Some of these badges may resemble or appear to be
Pogo Badges. These are, however, PogoAddiction Forum Badges. They
do contain images from Pogo related games and images. Please do not
contact me about why these are not showing up in your Badge Album on
Pogo." Basically put, I am not Pogo, as unfortunate as that
is, and therefore have no control over what shows up there.
How do you make up past challenges? You can do that with a
personal challenge. So yes, we offer Personal Challenges.
Now your next question is where do I get a personal challenge?
Review this thread for ALL the details and steps:
PogoAddiction Personal Challenges. You may ONLY DO ONE PERSONAL CHALLENGE
PER WEEK (Using your Shop Purchased Personal Challenge!)!
Super Badges are offered one time only, and like on Pogo, can never be
won again for any reason. Some of the Special Edition Badges can
NEVER be won again either. These include the "Special Edition
New/Makeover Game Badges" or the "Contest Badges." However, each
member can request to be awarded the PogoAddiction Member Badge upon the
completion of their first challenge, and the "Donator Badges"
can also be requested upon the receiving of a donation in that specified
amount from you. "Forum Promotional Badges" are awarded
automatically and can NOT be requested.
Many different people create the badges that you see on the PogoAddiction
Badge Challenge site. If you are a good graphics artist, don't be
shy about sending me some of your creations, however they do need to be
somewhat useable in relation to pogo.com.
Timeless are like Pogo's game rank badges. There is no
timeline, whenever you reach the requirement just request it. You
can request them at any time. If you have already finished some
timeless badges in the past (before starting your work on PogoAddiction
Badges) you can still request them at any time. You will NOT have
to start over.
