Happy Weekend Everyone!
Thanks to Jeff for sending in another fun weekend open thread topic. He has decided to bestow royal power upon us all this weekend, to make our Pogo wishes come true:
You have been appointed Queen/King of Pogo for a day. List up to 5 permanent changes you would proclaim.
If you have a weekend open thread topic suggestion you’d like to see discussed in the future, send it in for consideration using the contact form, linked at the bottom of every page on the site. Thanks in advance!
The weekend open thread is for the topic provided, or any questions or comments that aren’t quite related to anything else posted on the site this week. Feel free to use the comments here to also chat about anything Pogo-related that didn’t fit in anywhere else.
See you in the comments!

There’s something funky going on with Pogo’s badge purchase checkout page that could potentially cause some problems, so be sure to take note if you’re purchasing and/or gifting Mix-n-Match bundles.
If you put a Starter Bundle or Challenger Bundle in your cart as a gift, the sidebar of the checkout page might offer you a Starter Bundle or Challenger Bundle that contains one or more badges you already own. When you refresh the checkout page (for example, by using F5 on your keyboard), the sidebar will offer you a different badge or bundle. Some of those bundles are bundles you cannot purchase through Badge Central because you already own one or more badges in that particular bundle.
Take a look at this — Pogo’s Badge Central tells me that I cannot purchase the I ♥ Word Games Starter Bundle because I already owned one or some challenges in it.
Yet, after adding the I ♥ Fortune Bingo Starter Bundle to my cart as a gift, I was offered the I ♥ Word Games Starter Bundle on the checkout sidebar. I used the ADD button to add it to my cart and when it was added, I was offered the I ♥ Board Games Starter Bundle on the sidebar, another bundle I was unable to purchase regularly through Badge Central.
Pogo is aware of this, and their developers are working to make sure the Starter/Challenger bundles that contain one or some of your previously-owned badges do not show up in the sidebar, but a fix may be several days or weeks out.
Pogo recommends you do not purchase Mix-n-Match Starter/Challenger bundles listed below from the checkout sidebar that you cannot otherwise purchase through Badge Central because not only will you be spending more Gems per badge, your Mix-n-Match albums may get off-count and you might not receive your Mix-n-Match album completion badges. Pogo has stated their customer service will not award badges anymore.
Be aware that if you take advantage of this glitch to purchase badges you would not otherwise be able to purchase, you are putting your completion badges at risk and you may not receive a completion badge for your current Mix-n-Match album or possibly any of your future Mix-n-Match albums.
