I would like to suggest 2 possible improvements in the gamer quest area. The first is obvious and has probably already been made, but just in case, I never play just one game. On a new game I have played it as much as 5 times in one session and in general play 4-6 different games in one session. A way to more accurately report that would give readers a better sense of who plays what and how often. Secondly, limiting the hearts as you do is fine, but how about the ability to heart different games the max amount in the same time period. Otherwise those quests take way to long to accomplish.

Yup, my Critic and Professor quests also look to be messed up.

Gamer, Explorer, and Reporter ones are OK.

Yeah, several of my quests have suddenly reset to nothing, such as my House Rule quest.

Something went wrong with my quests. For example the quest report shows that I wrote 10 reviews with 235 likes but I did not. It also shows too many strategies.

So far I have had no real issues that I have noticed. Thanks for the effort I am really enjoying the site. It really feels like a cross between a website and a game, I am guessing that was what you are going for.

Can you put page numbers at the bottom and top of the pages? It s*cks to have to scroll back up all the time. No offense. Love the site. Hate scrolling.

The site is working better for me now. It was getting sluggish on my end. Good job!

I have not had any problems either. It has always been a very smooth running site for me. Must be the times I log on. 🙂

I haven’t had any problems with dead links or bad scripts. This is a great site!

I agree with Andrew, things generally are working well most of the time. This is an awesome site!

Keep optimizing, though I must admit the site does seem to be running smoothly most of the time. Keep up the good work!
