Voting and Donations Solution
« on: September 14, 2018, 08:59:26 pm »
This is a complete copy-paste of my discord post that people asked me to share here :)

Voting & Donations

        Hey everyone \<3. My old name was Liked, you may have known me from when I was probably about 12 playing RuneRebels for the first time. I used to love mining away at coal in my blue wizard outfit, as I once did on our beloved game. Today I run the /r/RSPS subreddit, and will be proposing a high-quality consideration to incentivize both Voting and Donations throughout the server: at no cost to the authenticity or remake nature of the world.


       Introducing Loyalty Tokens.
Loyalty Tokens are a brand new way to love, enjoy, and truely support the game we all love. They are balanced, non-game altering, and bring everyone together to relive RuneRebels to its fullest.

.
.

_\`\`'-.,\_,.-'\`\`'-.,\_,.\~  Distribution  \~'\`\`'-.,\_,.-'\`\`'-.\_,.-'\`\`_

In the art of fairness and balance, Loyalty Tokens can be achieved through a variety of methods:

 • Voting: Each vote will generate 25 Loyalty Tokens to the player whose name was entered
 • Donations: Donations will generate 100 Loyalty Tokens per 1$ donated
 • Event Distributions: Each staff member will have an allocated 250 monthly Loyalty Tokens to give away
 • Global Tasking: (I will write another thread giving more detail on this.)



_\`\`'-.,\_,.-'\`\`'-.,\_,.\~  Use-Cases  \~'\`\`'-.,\_,.-'\`\`'-.\_,.-'\`\`_

 • Forum Display:
      Loyalty Tokens can display benieth players' forum avatars in the following [Value/Value] method, where:
        - The numerator is their current number of Loyalty Tokens
        - The denominator is the total number of Loyalty Tokens they have ever generated

 • RuneRebels Membership:
      Membership has traditionally separated F2P from P2P players. After rolling out, World 2 will only be accessible to *members* players - who burn 500 Loyalty Tokens per month.

 • Tipping:
      Replying "!tip <amount>" on the forums will result in the amount specified transferred to either the OP of the post, or if placed after a quote, the user quoted.
      Tips have no affect on the number of tokens you have generated.

 • Burning:
      An option available through the homepage: "Burn" Loyalty Tokens. Both a monthly and life-time tally of the total Loyalty Tokens burned will be displayed, along with monthly and life-time highscores of top burners.

 • Voting:
      Polls can be generated where the score is based on the number of Loyalty Tokens voted with. While not the single factor for determining updates, this will enable veterans, dedicated players, and those with very strong opinions to have their voices and thoughts adequately heard. Similar to burning, you lose these tokens after voting with them.

+SUPPORT!

We really do need an incentive to voting or donating and this might be it!!

They can also add forum reputation but that doesn't really do anything.

How about community incentive compared to individual incentive when reaching a target amount of votes or
Examples could include:
  • Double exp rates (Although in my opinion this should be for special events
    Double Drop chances for a limited time
    Community events
    Resource drop party
    etc..

I love the community incentive idea, but those are a bit broken. Great concept though, we should expand on it!

my honest opinion is that this is going to far. i thought we were all here to enjoy the simplicity of runescape. the community isn't large enough for frequent trading so it's kind of a iron man status game. and for all those people that don't play enough they won't get enough loyalty points to continue membership. i do like the voting aspect, but not the membership aspect. another fantastic reason why i have been playing this more than osrs. i earn my bonds in osrs with in game cash and it's hard sometimes lol. this is a refreshing scene away from the ge, and membership and all the bull crap everywhere else. i can go on my farming run in total peace on this server.

To make this game fun we need a bigger community, people won't do stuff they don't get a reward for. If they would we would have way more votes right now.

I kind of like this idea because it incentivises people to vote... It also still allows people to play for free if they so choose... The only thing I would change is for it to be 50 tokens instead of 25 so that you only have to vote 10 times a month instead of 20 to keep your "membership" and we can maybe have some other token options that you can spend on if you were to vote every single day. I also believe everyone that starts the game should be given membership automatically for at least a month and if they wish to keep having membership they have to vote or donate. Loyalty tokens I believe should not be allowed to be traded in any way though but they can be applied to other accounts via membership or forum badges etc.

I like this idea a lot because it creates a huge incentive to vote and doesn't necessarily give anybody a unfair advantage over other players.. this could honestly be the solution to the voting system we have been looking for
