1. What does getting all the platinum medals give you?

  Bragging rights, nothing else.


2. Are there any glitches? / The game says "Platinum Awarded" but a
   gold trophy still appears!

  There is a problem with some of the Challenges/Arcade League Levels.

  Elite League - Team Series C - Bags of Fun:
   If you score with the tenth bag after time has run out (while you
   still move a bit, the game will count it as a gold.  To solve this
   problem, score 10 more before time runs out.  If you have already
   scored 10 after time has run out, you have to get 11 bags better.

  Challenge - Banana Chomp - Playing with Fire:
   The gold and platinum requirements are the same.  You must collect
   only 24 bananas.  This means once the challenges ends and you still
   move, YOU MUST NOT COLLECT ANY MORE BANANAS!!  Doing so will cause
   you to get a gold at which there is no method to get a platinum.
   If you get a gold on this challenge first, then you will not be able
   to get a platinum.  To prevent it, you must finish with at least 1 
   second or more left on the timer.  If this has already happened to 
   you, you will either have to live with the one less platinum or 
   start over.

  Challenge - TimeSplitters 'Story' Classic - Badass Bus Pass Impasse
   By simply playing a pre-created MapMaker map, you will get a
   platinum medal on this challenge.  I'm not sure if it can be any map
   or a specific one.


3. I have some information on a platinum medal, how can I contact you?

  See Section 7 (Contact information).
