Need some help with Best_Fisherman medal
I want to punch this guy in the face for making the missions a bit too unreasonable, especially the spawn rate, what gives? Even if he tries to base it from real life where fishing is a game of chance, it still doesn't mean he must jerk some people over with this tactic on a web game.

With that said, am I the only one who has trouble saving the progress?

What's very important in this game is to have a fast computer. Lag doesn't seem to influence game time so if you have a slow computer there just won't be enough fish for you to get. Try to close all other programs and use something like firefox. If you do that the game will actually become pretty easy.

Saving progress doesn't work too well if you do it on your computer but you can make use of the online saving option. That one seems to work pretty well.

Oh and I PM'd DoctorSB.

What? Really? A Wiesi game and the medals were removed? I thought this guy fixed them the whole time. After 21 hours? And the since last year broken medal in Broken Wind still exists? I don't get it why some people get a chance of 5-6 month to repair them and some lose their medals after not even one day.

Thanks, but it only explains the Wiesi part and not the other question.

We'll look into the broken wind medal.

Why some authors get months and some get days -- that's because we have different approaches to different authors. If there are broken medals in a submission that has just been submitted and the author doesn't respond in half a week then we assume he has no intention of fixing the medals and we might remove them. If some medals get removed in less than a day that means that we're so sure it doesn't belong on the portal (like an API test) or that the author has multiple games where he didn't fix broken medals. If we're sure the game shouldn't have the medal then we will delete it.
We aren't so strict about very old medals -- if there's a one-year-old game that has one or two broken medals then there aren't many people that try to get the medal daily and the author might not be too active so we might give him/her a bit more time. If you've asked an author about a broken medal and he ignores you for a while then please send one of us a message and we'll discuss it.
