Author Rewards Program Launching Soon

Posted by ckknight Nov 17, 2008 at 21:28 UTC

Hello, friends.

We're going to be launching a program to award authors with redeemable points. You'll be able to spend the points on game cards or similar things.

You have to opt in to receive points. You can do this at

This is still very much a work in progress, so you won't see points accumulating until we officially launch this. There also will be a wait between when points accumulate and when you can spend them at the store.

Points will be distributed based on popularity of the project. We're probably not going to reveal the exact algorithm to prevent gaming the system. We will investigate allegations of gaming the system and are more than happy to ban those who try to cheat. This is a nice pat on the back for all the authors who help drive traffic to curse, a way to say thanks, and if everything goes smoothly, make it so authors don't have to pay for their own WoW accounts, and for the addons that drive the most traffic to the site (Omen, QuestHelper, etc.), some extra perks.

Kaelten and I (ckknight) are doing the coding on the rewards system and the eventual store. No, we didn't sneak in code to steal fractions of points from people just like in Superman 3, no matter how tempting.
