2012 is just a day away! Here are some great year-long Challenges that will keep you on track!
Can’t find a Challenge you like? Create one yourself!
As an experimental part of the site, Challenges have been through a lot of changes over the last month. They’ve had rules added and removed, they’ve crashed, they’ve gotten stuck. Overall, they’ve had a rough life so far.
But, despite all of that, so many of you have made such fantastic progress on your Challenges. Some of the comment threads are super active and so many tips are being exchanged among the the players. It’s been so cool to watch, and I’ve done my best to keep them up and running despite being duct taped together as an experiment.
One month in, it’s quite clear what works and what doesn’t. I’ve gone into hiding these last few days to sit down and (hopefully) solve the issues with the Challenges system once and for all. And I’m happy (and relieved!) to say that I just pushed those fixes live!
Here’s what’s new with Challenges:
There are a lot of other crazy bits behind the scenes to power this seemingly simple update, but I’m pretty confident the new system will hold up in a much more graceful fashion from here on out!
So go on and check out the new Challenges! What do you think of the new system?
Good news! That rule that you couldn’t join a Challenge that had already begun? GONE.
Waiting 1-3 months to take on a Challenge was a bit ridiculous. So now you can join any Challenge, even if it’s already begun! You’ll have to do some catching up though - Challengers are pretty serious about their game!
Over the last few weeks I’ve been running a behind-the-scenes preview of a new twist on the old Groups section that makes working on goals into more of a social endeavor - basically a group game that lets people come together to work on a single goal.
Today I’m happy to say that the gates are open and Accomplsh Challenges are alive for everyone to join!
Here’s how it works:
Once a Challenge has started, the round is closed off and no new players will be able to join that round. You can easily put yourself on the waiting list for the next round by clicking the “Join next round” button.
That’s it! Staying motivated to complete a goal has never been easier!
