Any one else getting the black checkmark instead of the green for completing the puzzle correctly? My ocd hates that! it usually posts green but when i go back the next day they are black. it just looks so unfinished!

    Yes and no. Currently when I complete and save a puzzle, the calendar will mark it green; but, the following day I look at the previous day’s puzzle it has a green check mark but states it is a saved puzzle. I can open it and press ‘All Done’. The calendar will then put the solid green check mark for good.

    I do show black check marks (for approximately 12 days) in the previous, May, month on the calendar. I must redo those puzzles even though it states I have already done the puzzle. I do not get tokens for completing those puzzles. So far they have stated completed. I will check tomorrow to see if they are.

    I have many black check marks . My understanding is that after a day is played,1 day previous is removed and can not be played again..I am at least 2 months behind in mine, and I can only go back so far and try to do as many as I can before they remove it.I do at least 5 a day in back log, before they remove them. Check on your calendar, on the top of game, click the arrow going to the left and see how far behind you are, and try to catch up fast, cause it may not be there tomorrow…Gl and God Bless.

    Yes, I get the black check marks everyday, and it drives me crazy too! I have tried re-doing the puzzles, but by the next day, the black check marks are back again. I have reworked the puzzles as many as 5 or 6 times, but it does no good. I gave up trying. I get credit for the puzzle the day I do it with a green check mark, but when I do the next day’s puzzle, the previous day is they changed to the black check mark. Very frustrating, but since we can’t get anyone at Pogo to do anything about it, I guess we’ll just have to deal with it the best way we know how.

    Yes…but the issue on mine just started Sun. the 8th of June. I had read of it previous here on BH, but never had it happen. But, when it started, I just punch the ‘done’ button and got the tokens again. Thought it was over when check turned green (like always). Not to be, as I went back into room later to check, and the black check had re-appeared, so I repeated ‘done’…got tokens. Long story is, that I went back over 20 times trying to clear that blooming black check, and rec’d over 100k tokens before it finally stopped Sun. nite. Mon. morning, the black was back for 9 times before clearing, etc. Tokens are nice, but would like issue fixed. Anyone else tried to clear repeatedly? or do I have true OCD? lol…please let me know if anyone finds fix. Thanks! DD

    ddsrocks – I would be clicking just like you, but only for the tokens :) I haven’t had any change for the last week or so, and never had any change more than once.

    This morning it began again – I’ve been playing ever since trying to clear the loop evidently created during Tues. maintenance? Last week cleared my girlfriend’s loop, but she has Win8/IE 10 and only got the JPS and not entire amount. My problem as stated above has only been on/off since Sunday…yes, Moms, tokens are great! :)….but getting *really* boring, over and over. Grinning and whining at same time.

    Yes, always go thru calendar, and after game cycle, I click play again to check status. But when I go back into room again, black check appears. Upsets my sense of order (OCD). Even if I leave, I catch myself returning to check on it. sigh…

    Not sure if this has anything to do with it, but is it me, or does it look to anyone else like the old “play again” button is back, and if that’s the case, that could have an impact on the games, analogous to Qwerty, when the game went through a broken phase, when prior to, it was working fine. Wondering if the conversion to flash by both games, had an impact on both, but interesting to note, that perhaps I didn’t see the “play again” old button show up till now, as was not looking for it, and was not playing the game for awhile, but whoever mentioned the OCD…maybe it’s Tiger that has it…;) lol Hope this helps, and if it does, the solution may be a pogo maintenance fix?!

    It is always interesting to me, why the games are not beta-tested (thoroughly) prior to going through a conversion as in this case recently with the flash upgrade from java or an update (run in parallel) just to make sure, the game is running perfect, prior to any conversion or enhancements to it. While it is understandably difficult to test everyone’s environment from a H/W & S/W perspective and OS. etc., if problems are reported, put the old system back, until the kinks are worked out., but in the future pogo s/w
    team, please try and not release a version or a block of s/w that the end-users are your beta-testers, and we have to report problems to fix to get the game in its proper what should have been initial working state to begin with. Just a thought…..have enough PM work to do during the day at work….thank you very much…hehe! :) Have a great day everyone….BH’ers Rock! ;)

    @TigerWoodsBstEvr -

    AGREE with you 100%!!! And yes, the old game end gold bordered box with “New Game” “My Stats” and “High Scores” has been put back on a number of games that have been converted from Java to Flash. Bad conversions in many cases, such as Mahjong Garden. The “let’s pick random accounts and give them different versions of the game coding” Beta testing Pogo has been doing ALOT lately is causing near civil unrest. My CC plays fine, no stickiness, but the green to black checks “issue” has reappeared. Mahjong Garden for me is slower than it was , and interestingly enough the old style game end box has been reverted back to the new style game end. But the old style game end gold bordered box comes up first, as a ghost image with no buttons, instead a ghost “Please wait For Your Jackpot Spin” in pale orange… so hard to see it tool me multiple games this morning to be able to make it out.

    I agree,,, I test, retest, test again,, and then test a few more times before I deliver any of my animations or dancing fractals to clients. Because if i did not, my clients would go elsewhere. Pogo does not have this to deal with, because they know we already paid, and the majority of people will continue to play in spite of all the game play issues and coding errors. SIGH.

    For now as far as CC is concerned, I will go back and check the calender several times a day and rack up the extra tokens, since my game plays fine otherwise, But MG I will avoid until Pogo gets it’s act together and gets it fixed for everyone, And i will continue to send LTTE’s in about it until someone actually reads one, who can actually understand what I am telling them…SIGH

    When they “fixed” it a few weeks ago, it worked for me for about three days. I get the “Perfect Pen” everyday (thanks to Badge Hungry); however so far this month, I have about six black check marks. They drive me (and my OCD issues) up the wall; however I’m ranked out and just go in with my morning coffee and do the puzzles for tokens…albeit they drive me crazy!

    Okay, okay – I give up!! Again the black mark appeared this morning in CC. I have tried and tried to clear it with the ‘all done’ button, get tokies, and check calendar again to see. Keeps appearing….this could go on for a million tokens I guess? Successfully cleared these marks for 2 different days Sunday & Monday after repeated cycles. Alas, they re-appeared after Tuesday maintainence and just cannot make them go away this time. Evidently, after I refresh browser (Win7 – IE9), it allows them to show again???….very frustrating. Guess they are giving away tokies for nought. ~sigh~
