× 6 (16.67%) 4 Days - Humpday is always a good day.

× 6 (16.67%) 5 Days - Done before end of the week.

× 6 (16.67%) 6 Days - Cutting it a little close.

× 5 (13.89%) 7 Days - What were you doing all week?

So, it's looking like I'll be attempting my 15k in a week badge next week, so figured I'd give everyone a free poll for it like when I did my 10k. A few things to consider;
I will be on holidays (off work).
I haven't planned out any games yet, and probably won't. What's on the shelf (or drive) that's quick? Alright, that's next. Nothing preloaded.
I'll be using all games that I currently already own, most (all?) of which I have not played yet.
I have other stuff going on (appointments, going biking, etc.) during the week, that will cut into some of my time, but not that much.

I gotta make it first. Wink Weird that you make the post, then you add the poll after it's already created.

I think I want to change my vote... No plan and only stuff on your shelf? Probably going to take you the full week.

I'm going to say there are still people who have the badge I'm pretty sure didn't earn it.

And we need a 20k and 25k in a week badges. Make them and I will throw down!

I may have a Jp game or two left, but nothing under 6hrs. My plan is simply to look at my games collection on TA (I think everything's updated on there now, or at least I hope so), sort by quickest, and go.

I did the 15k badge easily, scoring roughly 17k and chilling half the week. I didn't even have to disrupt my normal family time. Make the badge and I'll prove it before the end of the year.

So what is our screening process going to be like if some guy smuggles explosives in his butt?!

Aside from that, my point is that we shouldn't alter our whole way of life due to a few people.

So, we have changed because of the individual. But, unlike the rewards offered in Islam, that are gross misrepresented by a small percentage, and the Islamic faith is not in charge of the method by which these individuals believe they earn those rewards, GTN very clearly states, "Hey, spam these forums and threads and get a badge, do it now!" GTN is both the Allah of the faith, as well as the TSA stopping you from boarding the plane. And I think, if Allah worked at the TSA, he probably would make how to get those rewards (if they existed) a little more clear.

Anyhow, way off topic here.

Looking back on Buck's unplayed collection, I'm surprised by how many games he has there... geesh... It's bad enough how many uncompleted games he has(Okay, I was using the wrong filter...)

So, I'm saying 6 days now... Only because it's not hockey season yet.
