One Million Award

Does anyone know if the one millionth award went out? I have tried Googling it, but can't find anything.

Hi Zelda.owns.link, as far as I understand the "one milionth award" is now an old absolute award and yes it went out (to more than one person I believe), but this was way back and it is no longer obtainable.

If you would read all the posts in this thread, as far as I can recall that is, the award is mentioned and confirmed to been given out and not only to the milionth person but everybody around at that time, the confirmation is given by someone that works at Kobo so it seems legit.

But this is my recollection so it is possible that I'm wrong abouth where I got the information and/or to how many people got it, but I'm shure about the fact that it went out.

hope this awsers your question :-)

You're correct about the award. It is now obsolete and can no longer be achieved. It was given to every user who happened to run the app between a specific range of dates, and it was to celebrate our millionth user of Kobo.
There are a few other awards, specifically the 2010 / 2011 Holiday / New Year awards that can no longer be achieved either.

I just got the Kobo Aura. All my awards from my Touch transferred over when i sync'd for the first time. Does anyone know if they are going to offer any new awards with either my Touch or Aura?

I also just got the Kobo Aura, I saw that Awards sync'd with my account, but when I went to the Kobobooks site and logged in, I could not actually *SEE* what awards I'd won, there was just a number equivalent to the number of awards I'd gotten on the reader device.

Is there any way to see the individual badges I've earned on the Kobo site or is that limited to the reader device?

If you go to kobo.com you can see a generic list, but you can only see the ones you have won on your device.

Hi, Graycyn,
Beckybug3 is right you cannot see your awards outside your device's, My frustration about that made me compile my list as far as I know this list is the most complete one around. (you can find the link below)

And Beckybug3,
After some contact with heavy users/readers, I pretty convinced there are no more awards out there other than those mentioned in this list at this moment.

There is no way to say this with absolute surety, but it looks like there are no plans at Kobo to release new ones in the near future.

Thanks, I saw the generic list, and the number of awards I'd gotten on the site and was just wondering if I'd missed a way to see the specific list. Guess not!

Not a big deal, it's kind of fun getting the rewards, but it's nothing seriously important to me, so I can live with them not being listed on the site.

You can view some of the awards here. It does not mention how you get them though. My guess is that some of the awards are not listed there.

Part of the reason is that this was seen to be a "game", you had to do certain things to get an award.

The list NiborSypher has is basically the complete list as it stands right now.

Is the award for logging into your Kobo account (the one with the lips) broken? Or am I just not logging in correctly?

I earned something like 20 of the awards in the first few weeks I had the Aura. They aren't very challenging. I wasn't trying to earn any, it just happened. But unless they come up with more to earn (that don't involve Facebook), it's kind of a useless feature now.

It was pretty much a useless feature when I first ran Kobo's Reading Awards.

Yeah, I agree, though it was kind of fun at first seeing the rewards pop up. But then it got annoying to dismiss them.

I enjoyed getting the awards. But since they haven't added any for a REALLY long time, I guess they decided it wasn't a selling point.
