Voting

Post by Beandon » Wed Aug 30, 2017 1:21 pm

A similar suggestion was made around 7 weeks ago about overhauling the voteshop. This suggestion is to do with that as well as methods of reminding people to vote or to get them to vote more often. I am making this suggestion because voting helps any server, whether it's modded or not, get more recognition on the server lists, making it easier to find and more worth peoples time. We all know you've been there before, looking for servers and completely ignoring the last few pages because you deem them not worthy of your time because simply put "Why should I play it if no one votes/likes it?" I personally believe Craftland is an amazing server with a lot of potential, but was a lot more fun with more players online (also achievements, we need more of those :)). Without more players, half of the shopchests are also obsolete since a lot of people who play is either AFK-Farming or owns everything.

Friendly Reminders
- Whenever a user logs in, ask them to vote as one of the messages when they log in.
- Every hour or so, at the top of the screen, if the user hasn't voted on at least 3 sites, remind them with a simple "Please remember to /vote for us" for about 20 seconds. It may seem like a form of begging, but the server does need votes in order to increase the amount of newer player influx.
- Another option could be to add an auto broadcaster in chat to remind people to vote if they again, havn't voted on at least 3 sites.

Additional Prompts/Rewards
- Whenever a user votes, add in a random chance system for a bonus reward. The rewards would have to be tempting with something like a potential rare spawner, perfect diamonds, white point stars etc.. When someone does win one of these things, the chat would broadcast "USERNAME just won ITEMNAME for voting using /vote". Again, this seems needy for votes, but we need them.
- Add in a voteshop UI instead of a warp and make it maybe emit a glow or have a different colour to the rest of the buttons to make people want to press it if they havn't already seen it before. The voting system needs more recognition and needs to be used more.
- Within the voteshop, add a daily item. Making people want to save up their votepoints to see the next rare daily item. This daily item could be a rare spawner at times, a vote-exclusive piece of armor/tool, white point stars (Please, I need them damn stars >.<) etc..
- I was also thinking about changing a few prices and adding a few things.
Perfect Diamond 300pts -> 180pts
Coloured Aercloud (4) 20pts -> 14pts
Spider Head 230pts
Grey Point Star 5pts
White Point Star 9pts

I would also like to take this moment to ask you to please vote for the server when you can. Voting may not give you too many in game rewards, but it gives the server the reward of being more easily recognised by the server lists, which in turn, leads to more newer players finding out about the server (Yes, it's not a quick process, but it does add up.. Just having one additional player vote everyday is another 30-31 votes on every vote site). :)

I would just hate it when someone reminds me every time i join, every hour and sometimes in the chat, i would like if u get reminded to vote every time u join but not every hour in chat and on the top of the screen that would just annoy some people.

Rare rewards? Sure, why not? But nothing with spawners, that would just support afk grinding.

Daily vote shop items could incrase voting on this server but just no spawners pls.

ye,we need price changes maybe make some usefull items a little bit more expensive to make people that want it vote more for it. make deco blocks and clouds less expensive and some players would vote to get it insteed to buy it with coins (would maybe fix economy a little bit too)

It being at the top of the screen clears up chat a bit more, rather than just having the same automatic broadcaster going into the chat every hour. We do need some form of method to get people to vote, I understand it's annoying, but it's kinda meant to be in a sense. Again, it's only a tiny bit of text at the top of the screen, similar to how 4corners broadcast went out.

Rare rewards. In fact, I'm maybe guessing some form of temporary inventory boost. Maybe an additional 9 slots for 4 hours per vote given out? This way, the more you vote, the more the timer stacks up (If I voted with 3 hours left on the timer, it would increase to 7 hours). This makes the reward potentially infinite, but only if you continue to vote every day or every other day.

I am completely against AFK grinding (and so is many others, but why does that matter), but there's no real way it can be removed. Especially considering people have paid money to obtain the spawners solely to grind with. Giving a rare chance for spawners will encourage people to vote more.

New F2P-Rank

Post by Crovan » Sat Dec 08, 2018 5:32 pm

For me personally, I'd wish if there was an achievement for voting 1000 or perhaps even 2000 times.
As I strongly seek more f2p-name colors, especially since the Master-rank was removed, I'd love if a name color could be the reward for it.

Alternatively one could set the following achievement in one (if possible):
Vote 1000 times
Complete 100 daily quests
Complete 100 achievements
Mentor 5 people

The subrank granted could either be smth. like "Veteran" or "Passionate".
I simply want a f2p rank other than playtime introduced that people can shift their anticipation to.
Now I have no idea what better names this subrank could have (subrank meaning it's extra and has no priority over other ranks, just like Architect for example).

As for perks:
- extra votepoint for every seond time you vote (cumulative to premium ranks)
- 5 extra public warps

Suggest potential names or colors for the rank below if you like the general idea as well :D

I personally dont like voting bc i only get 1 vote points each time so votewheel is even tho it has better rewards still expensive
theres also the broken voting links
I'd like the message when joining and maybe a short1 ig, not 20s but still noticeable
im strongly against a msg in chat bc we already have monsterhunt and id like to use chat to talk to ppl and not being spammed with stuff
server often have a command to vote and crateskeys + crates for voting and i like that
even tho thats usualy a random reward like votewheel its imo easier accessible so id use such a systen in cl definitely more frequently
not that much of a fan of votewheel especially since ive gotten only garbage so far, very discouraging

Definitely something worth investing time into since as you said my dear Mr Bean it is important for our server and could boost us
