Jeez, manually adding the badges for this many users? This is going to take ages and also seems like a waste of mods times when they could be doing actually useful things. Is making a script that automates this somehow out of the question?

Also I see a lot of people posting what they watched/read. Is there a post in the thread saying to do that to help out somewhere or is this just people assuming that this will somehow get them a badge quicker?

that sounds kinda inefficient

nah they will use a .csv file and fetch some names and bulk it all


The first post says it's being done manually...

I think it's just that some people assume this works like the Anime Watching Challenge/Manga Reading Challenge, where you have to make a forum post with what you've completed. It's not required for stack challenges, and I doubt it actually affects anything at all.

I still don't get what "restack" means. Did I have to abandon the challenge after finishing something and join it again? I am confused. I just joined the challenges (by clicking the only one clickable thingy there) and completed some titles. Did I miss it?

"Restacking" means clicking on that symbol so that it looks like this:

To get a badge, you just have to restack the challenge stack (as shown in the image) and finish at least one title in that stack before the end of the challenge period. If you didn't do that before August ended, I'm afraid that you missed it.

When they did the Spring one, Kineta made a little guide.
https://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=2006510&show=0#msg66080855

And here's the official stacks made my MAL. Of course, there's no challenges going on, but this is where it'll be when it's time
https://myanimelist.net/stacks/search?type=myanimelist

When you see a challenge one (it'll have a tag next to the red anime tag/yellow manga tag), just click the double square next to the number, it should turn blue. That means you've restacked it. Similar to a "favorite" or "like" feature on a social media site. All that's left is to watch/read/ or rewatch/reread one of the series in that list.

Thank you. Apparently it was just "re-" in "restack" which confused me. I thought it needed something redone multiple times if it has "re-" in it lol. (pardon my French). Then I guess I did what was needed.

Edit: Yay, I got them.

Shoot! I just came back here because I did the challenge but didn’t receive my badges. I reread the directions and realized that I never restacked the groups. Is there a way I could still receive both badges or am I SOL? I read “Gokurakugai Sanban-doori no Ken” and have been watching “Summertime Rendering”. Sorry for the inconvenience. :/

Maybe if you restack them now, a fairy godmother will sprinkle some sparkle dust on your profile~

Okay so basically some of us who just didn't understand and thought we did the challenge correctly get screwed. It's really disheartening when I believed I did the challenge correctly early on and waited until the deadline ended to receive my badges only to not receive them. Now it's too late. It's upsetting and disheartening.

I checked your list and you didn't watch any of the anime in the challenge during the challenge period. It's not a challenge if you don't do something for it :'D

It says on the stack:
Summer 2022 Official Challenge Stack
---
To get the limited-time badge:
1. Click the Restack button
2. Complete at least 1 anime you haven't watched OR re-watch an anime on this list by August 31!

Maybe if you watch an anime now (don't cheat!), a fairy godmother will sprinkle some sparkle dust on your profile~

It's cool the badges have hoverable labels (mobile)/their own page w/ links (desktop) that I and others suggested. Great work!

Wake up to reality! Nothing ever goes as planned in this accursed world.The longer you live, the more you realize that the only things that truly exist in this reality are merely pain, suffering and futility.Everywhere you look in this world,wherever there is light, there will always be shadows to be found as well.As long as there is a concept of victors, the vanquished will also exist.The selfish intent of wanting to preserve peace, initiates war and hatred is born in order to protect love.

Can anyone help? I didn't receive my Mermaid Badge.

I read as much as was available to read (on-going) and just marked it as completed just in case their were issues with the challenges by not marking complete.

I think I accidentally left the interest stack at one point and now I didn't get the badge. I read one title (Ningyo Ouji) within the time frame, is it still possible to get the badge?

Thank you. :)

So the Challenge was really to be taken literally? Shame on me. ^_^ I'll probably have to get ready for the next chance.

That Chibi Rocket would surely have looked nice, but I definitely won't wait another year. Life's too short. :'-(

Sorry guys, I've been crazy busy with the MAL Bunkasai event on top of my regular workload T_T I promise to come back and go through your messages here after I knock a few things off my to-do list. Please give me a bit more time 🙏 And don't miss out on that badge either!!

After you restacked them, did you actively complete the anime/manga during the event period? I think they changed it this event so that you must complete a new work or reread/rewatch something.

Of course, I completed 2 manga and 2 anime series 10 days before the challenge ended.

I did the stacking late thing (I didn’t realize it was a part of the challenge) but did read a manga and watch an anime from both lists. Is there any possibility that I can still get the badges or am I shit out of luck?
