    At this point I think there are only two ways to correct this.

    1. Make it so that if a person gets a time consuming achievement before they finish the whole event, they are eligible for the double badge.
    Or
    2. Make it possible for people to reset their progress for Day 1 / all event.

    They've already announced the double badge so they can't back out of it now. Two wrongs don't make a right.

    Of course they can drop it, they haven’t given out the double badge yet. I’d much rather see someone from TA say “yep that was a dumb idea, so we’re not going to implement it” rather than giving out a garbage badge for one achievement. That some people can’t even get because they got fucked retroactively.

    That's why I gave two options to cancel the retroactive fuck. They can't back out of it anymore, because some people have already made hours of effort to unlock a time consuming cheevo.

    My Valid Achievements button shows me challenges as well as achievements, and I can't seem to figure out how to filter them out?

    The "My Achievement" filter seems to be having serious issues this morning. It currently isn't filtering based on Achievement Type at all.

    So far I have unlocked 2 achievements that were shown to me as valid achievements for Day 1 and I have not progress to Day 2.

    Upon further inspection I can see that I am being given achievements that do not have the collectible or time consuming flag next to them, yet they are listed as valid achievements for the Day 1 challenge.

    Yep, filtering achievements is broken at the moment.

    Sucks because I do not have a pro account anymore and I have wasted 2 scans today!

    So how soon after the challenge is revealed can I earn it. I finished Day 1 and completed 2 achievements for day 2, but they aren't counting towards the challenge. Any suggestions?

    You talking about Prominence Poker, as price is free and you have unlocked two there today? I would guess TA effed up, and Prominence Poker is not counted as free to play. Good thing is that you will probably get extra badge for your efforts.
    Any problem solved is a new problem made.

    Is there a way to remove myself from the event?

    Yep, Prominence Poker was the game in question. Guess I'll have to unlock 2 achievements in a different game.

    Anyone know if Hitman 2 - episode 1 would count for todays challenge? It is free but the rest of the game isn't. Don't really want to start it if it doesn't count.

    Based on descriptions I've read, it should count if that description is accurate but it currently wouldn't because it's not on the list. I'll mention it for review for inclusion on the list.

    Or make it known to people with power, in one of 12Days thread someone sorted Korgan out, as it was not counting, but counts now.

    Hi guys,
    this is my first challenge so i'm not sure if it's my fault or not.
    But after signing for the challenge I completed 3 achievements marked as 'Time Consuming' and 'Collectable' but nothing happened. From what I read in FAQ it sound count just after new scan that register new achievements...
    Should I do something more or just wait?
    Thanks

    You can force a scan, or you can wait.

    There's something wrong with the achievement it offers. For collectables I got these in my list of valid achievements, but they obviously don't fall in that category. Guess I'll have to wait till they fix it, because I'm not going to sort through all achievements until I found one that works.

    Filters seem to be broken across the board, I've posted on the bug reports forum.
