New badges are here!
After the huge success of the first few rounds of Sporcle badges, 3 new badges have now been unveiled. Read about them below, and be sure to get them while you have the chance!
Feliz Navidad: The holidays are a great time for quality Sporcling. To get the Feliz Navidad badge, you must play Finish the Christmas Song, Santa’s Reindeer, and Buddy the Elf Food Groups on Christmas Day. If you miss the 24-hour window of opportunity, you’ll have to wait a whole year to get a second chance.
Social Butterfly: Social butterflies always know the latest news and trends, and social Sporclers are the same way. To get the Social Butterfly badge, you must connect your Sporcle profile to both Facebook and Twitter. It’s simple really, as easy as softly landing on a flower petal.
World Traveler: You might not be able to travel the world by playing Sporcle, but you sure can learn a lot! Play 1000 total games in Geography, and you’ll be considered a World Traveler. At least in the eyes of Sporcle.

You might have noticed we’ve been giving the Sporcle homepage a few nips and tucks throughout the month of December. We’ve moved the activity window further down the page, added a brand new banner at the top, and completely removed the Random User Created quiz button.
Be sure to let us know if you like or dislike the new changes on our homepage. 2011 saw plenty of other websites that had issues when they’ve changed their homepage design, and we here at Sporcle do not want our name added to the list. If you have any concerns or comments, be sure to drop us a note in the blog comments or at our Feedback page.
We won’t be posting a Sporcler of the Week or Comments of the Week today, but check back next Friday for more great content. Be safe out there!
