May Competition results, VIP+ changes & Non-VIP ad problems solved.



Thank you to everyone who filled out the survey yesterday, some really great feedback on how things are going is always good to here. I have noted down all of the possible suggestions that were made, so your idea may be implemented in the future.

First thing, changes to VIP+
- Packs are now a full month (31 days) rather than 21 days as before. Current players who bought them at the 21 day rate I have compensated with some extra free days. (please remember though VIP+ is in BETA so changes can be made where i don't have to compensate because changes are expected, I'm just too nice).
- Tried to reduce the text on the page as people seem to be confused by the concept & updated the layout of the page a little bit.
- Got rid of the 100 day VIP day minimum for it, it is now possible to have 1 VIP day and 1 VIP+ day, but you still cannot have more VIP+ days than VIP days.
- You can now trade plasma for VIP+ days

Now onto the may competition, thank you for everyone who took part, here are the results:

Trading off your gems will come soon & the June competition. Thanks to everyone who took part.

I have been using an ad company which fills in ad views when the big ad companies have no ads to show. These are generally low paying ads but they fill in the empty inventory, I've heard some complaints about popups etc going on with them, so I have completely removed those ads. When there are no ads to show (non vips) you'll see a text ad advertising VIP. I don't want to annoy members with popup ads that get snuck in for the ad companies profit and without my permission. I'd rather get nothing and have happy players than low paying popup ads which i didn't want in the first place. So hopefully you non-VIPs shouldn't have anymore problems with that.

The xbox 360 competition will close on Monday where a random winner will be chosen, please get your last entries in now!


Oh, and the random person to get $50 pack for the survey is.....Gabriella DeathWish (216733)

Have a good evening,
Ash

Congrats for the top 3 gem hunters, but I think Rez (153767) should get an honorable mention, maybe even a small prize for stopping at 6665... one more gem would have been to cliché... Just sayin.

Rez said...

Heh. Thanks for the mention. :)

Wondering what the deal is with the gems now, there was mention of a use after the competition, trading them in for something....

When you feel like you want to scam even more $ from these silly kids are you going to create a new feature.... vip + + (2 plus) days?... - Just curious! lol

Rez said...

What are you on about?
Oh & I'm not a silly kid. I'm a silly adult. :p
