I've noticed that the web version of Gasbuddy doesn't display the champ icon like the mobile version does. How about showing that in the web version?

Rich: Thanks, but I couldn't care less about the app awards.

I did confirm that the Location Top Spotter did advance when a price was reported from the FSL. It didn't happen immediately; maybe at midnight?

CK,

If you're playing along with the game, it's probably good to remember though that your consecutive day counter is not incremented in the app (Iron Man) if you report prices from the web site.

I didn't know that. I think I will confirm that tomorrow by purposely delaying reporting a station until I can do it from my FSL and then see if it increments the count as viewed from the app.

Actually, reports made from the web site count toward the Top Spotter game.

Kinda hard to be the Champ for x days on the web site. Unless you list them under your icon. Not of much value unless we are talking of starting web awards again.

Thanks. I finally found it. (The problem is that it is hidden in plain sight. I didn't have the benefit of "8 x 10 photographs with circles and arrows.")

CK et al,

The icon can indeed be found under the "Location's Top Spotters" section in the app.

mdr46 is referring to the small trophy that appears below the top spotter's handle and just to the left of the text that reads "Champ for x days"

Another topic with "champ" in the title caught my eye, and it was about Location's Top Spotters. Could that be what this one is about?

I don't know what a champ icon is, either (not that I can much about the app awards). It's not on the awards page. mdr46, can you describe how you get to it?

Seriously? You really don't know or is this just part of your schtick to obstruct any idea and maintain the status quo?

Why is it displayed on the app?

What "champ icon" are you talking about?
And how, where, or why should it be displayed?
