Today I am talking about some ideas I've had for those who are not staff on the forum, to give regular members a chance to earn tokens at a higher rate by encouraging them to search the forums and learning more about the boards to earn tokens.
My current layout is not the approved version as of now, and may change in the future if it is not utilized enough, or it turns out it is granting too many tokens too fast for members. This also includes any possible problems that arise.
The contest is fairly simple. I, as administrator, will place secret codes throughout the forum in various threads and boards. These codes are then found by members searching for them. These codes will be updated for a set amount of time, still being decided. There will be a member limit to how many members actually earn the maximum amount of tokens per contest, as more members find the code the amount of tokens diminishes. This is a first come first served in that way.
There will be anywhere from one to five codes, depending on activity on the forum, and the amount of tokens each individual code is worth.
My first suggestion is to initiate the contest once the forum exits beta testing and opens up to new members. This also will not start until there are a minimum of four active members, that are not staff.
The Codes would be private messaged to me along with which thread had that specific code. This also includes a one sentence comment about what you learned.
Disqualification occurs when members tell others where the codes are, the member looses all tokens gained in that round of code searching and will not be allowed to earn tokens in the next round.
Here are the starting layouts.One Code Plan
