The Unwanted is an ongoing event that revolves around the underplayed sets on RetroAchievements. Each month of the event starts on the 15th and players/devs can earn tokens by beating the games, mastering them, reporting issues, fixing issues, doing revisions, making new badges, and other tasks. Get enough tokens and you will qualify for an achievement to go toward a badge. The best part? You can take time off from the event if you want. You could get three achievements unlocked, take a few months off, and then pick up where you left off. - As always, don't be a dick. - Each month begins and ends on the 15th. - You can start at any time and can skip months if you want to!!! - When a month ends, the main game selection will be changed and will become ineligible for players. However, if you are an achievement developer, you can still resolve tickets, revise, add new badges, etc. for any of the previous months' games. - There is no limit on the amount of tokens that can be earned per task. - Bleed over can occur. If you qualify for silver and end up getting six more silver tokens, you can trade those extra silvers for one gold token. - Some tasks can contribute to multiple objectives and are marked with 📚 -Examples: Beating two games will earn the player three bronze tokens—one for each game beaten, and one for beating two games. Mastering a game for a silver token will also earn the player a bronze token for beating it. Creating five tickets for a silver token will also award a bronze token for each ticket submitted. - Previously beaten/mastered games will contribute towards cumulative goals during the event. - TOKENS WILL NOW CARRY OVER BETWEEN MONTHS FOR UNQUALIFIED TIERS. Example: Ending with 7 bronze will start the following month with 7 bronze. Ending with 12 bronze will NOT carry over additional tokens. - All achievements must be earned in Hardcore. - The Unwanted [Bronze] (Events) - The Unwanted [Silver] (Events) - The Unwanted [Gold] (Events) - The Unwanted [Platinum] (Events) - The Unwanted Year 2 [Bronze] (Events) - The Unwanted Year 2 [Silver] (Events) - The Unwanted Year 2 [Gold] (Events) - The BRONZE, SILVER, and GOLD tiers all have tasks assigned to them and each task will grant a token. 🕹️: Tasks that can be done by anyone. 🛠️: Tasks that can only be done by devs. Junior devs will need code reviewer approval. 🕹️🛠️: Tasks that can be done by anyone, but will require a dev to sponsor a vote and/or commit changes. - The PLATINUM tier has a separate list and focuses on games previously ignored in The Unwanted as well as games that have never been mastered, despite the player count. These games will not contribute towards Bronze, Silver, or Gold tasks. - One token per task - Nine to qualify 🕹️Beat one game 📚 🕹️Beat two games 📚 🕹️Beat the game prior to this month 📚 🕹️Create one legit ticket 📚 🎨Get a new game icon through the icon gauntlet 🎨Get less than 20 new achievement badges for a set approved through the icon gauntlet. 🛠️Fix one legit ticket 📚 🕹️🛠️Provide a list of all mandatory progression achievements in a set marked with an asterisk (*) 🕹️🛠️Correcting game info (Publisher, Developer, Genre, Release Date): 1 token per game. 🕹️🛠️Rescore the game via accepted proposal (current and past months) - One token per task - Six to qualify 🕹️Beat three games 📚 🕹️Master one game 📚 🕹️Master the game prior to this month 📚 🕹️Create five legit tickets 📚 🎨Get 20-49 new achievement badges for a set approved through the icon gauntlet. 🛠️Add or improve dynamic Rich Presence (<1000 characters) 🛠️Fix five legit tickets 📚 🛠️Minor revision to a set - One token per task - Three to qualify 🕹️Beat five games 📚 🕹️Beat eight games 📚 🕹️Master three games 📚 🕹️Be the first to master a set (for The Unwanted, not overall) 🕹️Create ten legit tickets 📚 🎨Get 50 or more new achievement badges for a set approved through the icon gauntlet. 🛠️Improve or add dynamic Rich Presence (>=1000 characters) 🛠️Major revision to a set 🛠️Fix ten legit tickets 📚 🕹️Master a game in the Platinum tier list. Note that each mastery is good for one unlock towards the Platinum badge! - In number of tokens you must obtain to qualify for a tier are as followed: Bronze: 9 Silver: 6 Gold: 3 Platinum: 2 - When you qualify in a tier, at the end of the month you will get an achievement manually unlocked for that tier. Once you have qualified in that tier twelve times, you will be awarded the mastery badge. You are not required to qualify twelve months in a row. So if you have three achievements unlocked in a tier, you could take a whole year off, do a couple more, take another break, then do the rest. You need twelve total per tier. - Yes, you can qualify for a higher tier without qualifying for a lower tier. It happens. - For Discord users: qualifying in the silver or gold tier will grant you the unwanted role for the rest of that month. You'll be able to stay more up-to-date, take part in occasional voting, and have a sexy red name. - You can check this hub for a full list of previous months' games: [⭐The Unwanted⭐ - Past Games] (Hubs) - The DevCoC still applies and has priority over The Unwanted! Before making changes to achievements, make sure you have permission from a set's developer if they are active. Revision guidelines still apply. - For the sake of convenience, a ❗ has been added to all Unwanted games and bonus games with devs considered active.

Use that to your advantage! 📌 If at least 50 tickets for bonus games are resolved in a month, there will be a "refill" which replaces the games cleared of tickets with other games. 📌 Saves provided MUST be compatible with RALibretro! 📌 Obvious low-effort work will not be eligible for the box art task. Try to make these look as legit as you can. Game must have an achievement set. Age ratings such as ESRB are not necessary. Here's an example 📌 Consider using [Meta|QA - No Box Art] (Hubs) to find box art candidates. - One token per task 🛠️ Resolve one ticket from any of the bonus games. 📚 --🕹️ Provide one save state or save battery file to assist in the resolution of a bonus game ticket. 📚 🎨 Create one custom box art for hacks, homebrews, prototypes, etc. 📚 - One token per task 🛠️ Resolve five tickets from any of the bonus games. 📚 --🕹️ Provide five save states or save battery files to assist in the resolution of five bonus game tickets. 📚 🎨 Create three custom box arts for hacks, homebrews, prototypes, etc. 📚 - One token per task 🛠️ Resolve ten tickets from any of the bonus games. 📚 --🕹️ Provide ten save states or save battery files to assist in the resolution of ten bonus game tickets. 📚 TheUnwanted Joined Jun 14, 2022 January 4 2022, 9:48am, last edited June 15 2022, 1:22am You can get a template from this pastebin link or follow the example in this post. 2B 🥉 9/9 [Bronze] +2 🥈 1/6 [Silver] 🥇 0/3 [Gold] Fixed Game Info: 7 Forum Labels: 1 Opened Tickets: 1 Resolved Tickets: 2 New Badges: 1 2B (how many points the current post is worth) 🥉 9/9 [Bronze] +2 (Running total of bronze tokens. 9/9 means I qualified, so the +2 is bleed over.) 🥈 1/6 [Silver] (Running total of silver tokens.) 🥇 0/3 [Gold] (Running total of gold tokens.)

The team that runs the event periodically reads through it and calculates/tracks your progress for you on this spreadsheet. Kyluya Joined May 24, 2020 May 17 2023, 5:53pm Thanks!
