Oh medals... that's cool.

I'm sorry, it's nice that the medals have been fixed, but I was hoping for the Literature Portal.

I actually got in NG this morning and it worked on my laptop.


We had a little bit of spring cleaning that needed to be done, including a bug fix for the medal system that was causing medals to not unlock to your profiles.

Hmm, I see....


Well, the good news is that bug should finally be fixed. The better news is that was being fixed, we also put together some new stats views for the medals.

Hopefully this won't happen for sometime.


Without further ado, check out the following:

http://www.newgrounds.com/rankings/medals - Global medal stats.

This is fricking great. Looking forward to see my name on that list soon!

http://www.newgrounds.com/social/stats/medals - Social medal stats.

This is great again. But then, it was not really my concern but good job!


Also, you can now click on the icon for any medal to see who the first users were to earn it, and who's picked it up most recently. Try it out by clicking some icons via the userpage of our current medal king, Nijsse:

Well this is nice all right.


http://nijsse.newgrounds.com/

Looks like that guy has a lot of time on his hands.

Will we be able to access that page directly from the game's page rather than from a user who has earned that medal?


I lost the game.

Awesome update. Nice to know that the medals are finally fixed.

On a related note, are we going to be able to see point values for unlocked secret medals anytime soon?

I dunno if you want to look into this, but you should probably prevent people involved in the project from being displayed as FIRST UNLOCKERS on their own games.

Kinda takes away a bragging right.

Same here...

When he said 'a specific group', I was thinking along the same lines as test-object, that it was either for one of the smaller portals (audio or art) or lit, with a small chance that it's for programmers or animators.

Thanks anyway, staff.

So, I just unlocked a bunch of medals from "Flight" (Borbonne-Le-Bonne, To Be A Bird, The Prophecy, Efficiency, among others) and they're still not showing as unlocked in my profile. (Yet I was unable to unlock a few medals for that game the first time I played it a few days back.)

I was just checking into this game, it looks like there may have been some bug in the playatomic api they also have in the game. It wasn't even trying to connect to the NG API. I cleared my cache and reloaded the game a bit later and it started working. Worth a shot.

Oh, I'm just wondering about this now that I think about it: will there be any direct way to get to the "API Features" page directly from a game's page? I'm talking about this (just an example) . Just thought it would be neat to have on a page, perhaps above the submission along with the favorite, lights, etc. button or down with the medals, scores, etc. I was able to get there only through editting URLs.


Are you MAN enough to click this?!

Cool to see these new features. Now I don't have to go through friends' main/stat pages to see their total medal points.

Is the social medal rankings stat a "local" ranking list among all your friends?

Also, it shouldn't take much to overtake me on the global rankings list, but Nijsse is on a whole different level!

The Nijsse-level level. Seriously, he's extremely good.

Yeah social just tells you where you rank vs your friends. So don't be friends with Nijsse ever....

I threw one more stat view up... if you look at any user's medal stats on their userpage, there is now a 'Compare' button where you can see that user's games for whatever game compared to your own.
