thanks for sharing your tech.
a) it happens ALWAYS, but only since a few weeks ago, around the time, or exactly the time (I cannot say) when kong introduced the new menus.
b) ? did nothing.
c) since all of the german people I talked to have the same problem, it is either a DNS problem or a kong problem (changes in site code?), but not a provider problem.
Maybe someone from KONG could share his knowledge on that topic? They should have noticed that the “badge of the day not awarded” bug reports increased a lot.
By the way, as of now I still do not have the badge of the day for new york shark, nor the kids vs ice cream. Loading the page there simply is no badge, although the badge page lists it.
