I'm sure that many of you are wondering what the new WI$ amount is in everyone's postbits and what it means.
This is a new system that I am pairing with our donations and subscriptions that will be coming online within the next week or two here on WI.
Over the past few months, we have noticed that people have become obsessed with two things on WI -- post count and reputation.
The problem with both is that neither really indicate a member's true worth on Webkinz Insider. We hope that this new system will help reward our best and most active users.
The system calculates (adds and subtracts, depending on the activity) your WI$ based on the following criteria:
Visits based on usergroup
Activity based on usergroup
Posts (On others and in own)
Your thread popularity
At this point, we are still learning the system ourselves and what it is capable of. There are many additions that we can add to WI for users to "spend" their points on and once the donations and subscriptions are in place, I will be evaluating them.
Some of them include:
1) Lottery / raffle drawings, which we may use for our monthly giveaways from Ameriwade.
2) Using your points to purchase temporary membership into our subscription program (coming soon).
3) Living Avatars.
6) Post Thanks
And many others...
This system is very experimental and if we determine that it just isn't working for WI or that it's being abused, we may have to remove it from the forum.
I just wanted to be proactive about this because I'm sure people will be wondering what the points are, how you get them and what they're used for. I hope I've answered the first two questions and as for the third -- we'll have to wait and see!
