How do I participate?

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?

How much does this cost?

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.

What are the rules?

The rules of participation can be found here.

What challenges can I do?

You can do ANY of the "Timeless Challenges" anytime you want.  You may also do the current challenges, which are located on the Main Page.  If you are new review this page here.

How do I submit my challenges for badges and what is needed?

You submit your challenges for badges by filling out the "Submission Form".  Be sure to fill out all of the information!

What is a screenshot?

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?

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.

How should I submit my screenshots?

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".

When do the new challenges come out?

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 est.

Where can I find my badges?

Your badges will be located in your Badge Album.  The badge albums are located in your profile on the forum.  Go your profile and find the "PogoAddiction Badges" link on the left side menu.  That is your album!

Why don't I have a badge album or my badges?

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 pabadges@pogoaddiction.com or 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.

Why aren't my badges showing up in my Pogo Badge Albums?

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 I make up past challenges?  Do you offer Personal Challenges? How many can I do?

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!)!

How can I get the Super or Special Edition Badge?

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.

Back to Top

Who creates all these badges and images?

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.

How do Timeless Badges Work? Can I request them at any time?

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.
