So.....is all that what you were implying I should do, or is all you have to do is click inspect, change the width, hit enter and then X? I am assuming the latter

 

Definitely the latter.  I'm glad you found a way that works for you though, even if it does take a few more steps.

Thanks! Happily, tonight, I found a way to grab the picture without having to scroll through every image on the page. It's still a few extra steps than you, but nowhere near as annoying as it had been!

Thanks for all the great work, a quick question/recommendation. I have a daily battle log thread, how to people combine that with 5 week challenges? Two threads? All in one thread? Some combo?

 

Hi Craftyviking.

 

The battle logs are a "do it your own way" zone.  If you have both a guild Challenge thread and a Battle Log, how much you integrate them with each other, and in what ways, is really up to you.  The Challenges have a recommend format, as laid out in the pinned Beginner Guidebook thread, but there's no particular recommended structure for the Battle Logs.

I'm going to try and build "an epic quest" to accompany the upcoming challenge.
 

Question:

How do you all organize your quest items?
For Example: If one of mine is meditate everyday... would I have to wait until the end of the challenge to mark it off?

I think I'd rather have things I could "check off" more often to get that sense of progress, but it seems that would require tons of quest items (like maybe a list for each week)?
That seems like overkill, but I'm afraid it would be too easy to just forget about the quest if there's nothing to mark off for 4-5 weeks.


Does that make sense?


Thanks!

I would rephrase it as "My goal is to build a habit of meditating". And then I'd break that down to something like "I'm going to meditate at least four days every week".

And then you can report in however often you like. If you report in daily, you can just say "Did I meditate today? Yes I did!" or "Did I meditate today? No I didn't :("

Or if you just want to report in weekly you could do "Meditation: ✔️✔️✔️✔️" for four meditation sessions that week. Also feel free to give extra points if you do more than four days one week  And maybe get yourself some loot at the end of the challenge if you have five stars or more, or whatever :)  

 

It's all up to you how you want to lay it out :)

Hi Digdug.

 

Everyone is able to post quest updates on their personal Challenge thread as often as they want to.   That could be every day.  It could be weekly.  It could even be multiple times a day.   Reporting on how your quests are coming along is one of the main purposes of a personal Challenge thread.  We want you to be posting your progress regularly.  That is, as regularly as you find it helpful to do so.  Using your example, if you have a quest to meditate every day, you're could post in your Challenge thread every day to report that you completed that day's meditation.

Thanks so much for the feedback folks. I appreciate it.
And sure, I do understand about the separation of the two sides of the site, and I certainly plan to check in on the forums regularly.

Having said that I ALSO want to get some XP on my "Character Sheet" that exists on the other side of the site.

And THERE I'd like to have weekly things to check off.

(I would have asked the question on the Academy side of the house but I didn't see a way to do that)

 

For example here's what I did for the upcoming challenge... it's not a huge problem, but it was tedious.
It would have been super helpful to have the ability to duplicate quests lists in the "my epic quests" section, or set a quest list up as recurring.
(see Attached)

 

@Tobbe - this may make more clear what I was getting at earlier.

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner @DigDug :(

 

I looked in to how that quest page worked, and a button to duplicate a questlist wouldn't be too difficult to do. But I'm sorry to say that I'm not going to do it myself. If you know some Javascript yourself, and you know your way around the Chrome devtools, I'd be happy to give you some pointers though :) 

 

The easiest option for you would probably be to take that exact setup you have there, and run that as a challenge here on the forums. Then, at the end of the five weeks, you tally up your score and update your Character Sheet. So do the daily/weekly checking of boxes here on the forum, and then sync up with the Academy once every five weeks :)  Could that work?

Click on your username in the top right corner of the screen.  On the dropdown menu that appears, choose Account Settings.  On the account settings page, choose Signature from the menu on the left side of the screen.   Once the signature text box page appears, type what you want for your signature into the text box and click the Save button.

One of the NerdFitness challenges is "Get an A on your 4 Week Challenge." I thought I'd read through the 4-week challenge material, but I didn't see anything about a grading system. Is there any particular rubric for what counts as an A?

That came from a defunct "Stat Leveling" system that used to be a thing years ago.  Here's the link to one of the old threads if you're interested in reading about it.
