How do you know why you earned an award in Fluther?

Asked by BonusQuestion (1482points) September 1st, 2010

I know some awards are supposed to be earned and the speficis are not disclosed in public. I am not asking for specifics. I just want to know why I earned an award. Is it possible?

Which award specifically are you asking about?

Sometimes you do… Sometimes you don’t.

If you go here, you’ll see the awards that have descriptions. The others are meant to be puzzles that you must figure out on your own.

@marinelife It’s just a general question. I thought somebody said if you earn them you would know how you got it, but I have “pilgrim” and have no idea how I got it.

@syz, Thanks but I am talking about the secret ones. I thought after earning them it would tell me how I earned them, but I guess not.

How would I figure out on my own?

I don’t know why I got most of those I have. Coincidence of timing gave some away, and I remembered for that long, but couldn’t tell you now. I have no interest in the awards and wouldn’t miss them if they all vaporized.

@BonusQuestion The only way to really figure them out is to pay attention to what you were doing shortly before you got the award.

@BonusQuestion Pilgrim is one of the awards that they don’t tell you how you earn.

@BonusQuestion Since the awards don’t have any value, they’re meant to be fun. If you don’t like riddles, just ignore them. (I do – when I couldn’t figure out some of them, I felt so inadequate, I quit paying any attention. But I’ve never been one for riddles.)

Since realizing the answers to some of the awards are to be figured out, I’m up for the challenge. I love puzzles and dammit I’m going to figure it out! Sooner or later:D

@syz, I don’t have any problem with riddles. I like them, but I just wanted to make sure I am not missing something.

Thanks for the answers, folks.

I like some particular awards more than other awards. Some are special and will give you the ability for ‘something’,not telling,but that’s I’m looking for.

@BonusQuestion Since you actually have the award, if you PM me, I’ll tell you why. But keep it to yourself, ya’ hear? :D

~Also unlocking the troll award instantly bans you. Perhaps it is best not to try for that one~.

Thanks @augustlan. Somebody already messaged me with the info. :)

I have a couple of those secret awards. I figured out (roughly) what feeding-frenzy means, though I don’t know the specific number(s) involved. I have pilgrim too, but no idea how I got that. I’m not smart enough to work riddles out.
