Right now, we can just remove medals if they're not working. This may not be the best solution. Some users worked hard to earn these old medals. They don't deserve to lose them just because they don't work anymore.
At the same time, new users should be able to earn all existing medals. It's not fair that old users earned medals that can't be earned anymore. Both users should be equal.
So, in other words, we're trying to find a way to satisfy both users. We're not sure how yet but we'll figure it out.
In the meantime, please keep posting the games with broken medals here. It would help ^^
Edit: Also I already have some of the games you mentioned in lists
Try to check if the game is already in these lists or not ^^
I checked these games and you can remove the following ones from the lists because the medals seem to be working:
Monster Arena - last unlock: yesterday
Right-Click Menu Gen. V2 - probably, last unlock: 2 weeks ago
JugglePix - last unlock: 5 days ago, only the first medal is not working
Pirate Clock: The Game - last unlock: 8 days ago
Walls Lite has an error - last unlock: 12 hours ago
Zombie Kids Santas Survival - last unlock: 2 days ago
Portal Panic - last unlock: yesterday
Symphonic TD - Halloween - I just checked that game and unlocked a medal
Blob's Adventure - last unlock: 5 days ago
Melee Man - last unlock: 5 days ago
Cat Astro Phi - last unlock: 8 days ago
And the following ones because the medals from them have been already removed:
Alien Wasp Invasion
Plunge N' Lunge
A Corny Platformer
Vector Rush - I remember reporting this one, the whole game should be removed, because it is not working
There are also some games medals from which were unlocked 2 weeks ago and the ones that are just hard to get. And of course the secret ones.
As for fairness: if some of the medals from the games from your list were to be removed I would lose about 1000 points, but if they are currently unobtainable - I say: take'em down. I don't want to have any unfair advantage on my account. It's a point of honor.
About unfair advantages: there are 2 more things that still need dealing with: the medals from removed games and the issue I am calling the "overpoints". 1st issue is well known and I really don't see any other solution than removing those medals that nobody can earn anymore. The 2nd one: I mean those miscalculations of points present on many accounts where some people have even double amounts of maximum available points from some games. Nijsse promised to deal with it by resetting the stats, I even reminded him about it some time ago, but he did not respond.
