Why Join the Community?

Members get some benefits anonymous users do not. They have permission to post new topics in the forum, new recipes the community cookbook, and pictures in the gallery. Members get to skip the "recaptcha" (the cryptic weirdly distorted words you have to type before you're allowed to add your comment). Aaannnd...Members get points!

What's up with these points thingies?
The points are to encourage participation and evangelism of the story; the more you participate in the site, and the more readers you bring in, the more points you get. And the more points you get, the higher ranking you get on the site and the more points you have to spend. We'll get to that. First--

Earning points
You must have an account to earn points! It's free and easy!

1 point for posting a comment
2 points for posting a recipe or a forum topic
5 points for fan art posted to the gallery
10 points for each successful referral

Reward levels

50 points

--Petitioner status and badge

100 points

--Devotee status and badge

200 points

--Postulant status and badge

400 points

--Supplicant status and badge

800 points

--Embodiment status and badge
--Access to Ask a Tremontine and the Horrible Drafts

I also may award extra points for folks who work in the wiki or otherwise provide great service to the story, at my discretion.

Note: I'm still revising the points rewards. This is how they stand 7/1/10. Kinda below Embodiment! I'm hoping to come up with more good stuff soon.

This new point system is a great new aproach!! Love the 'status titles' and badge ideas!!! Not to mention the availability to have a CAMEO in the story!! So cool!!!!!!

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

This looks great (and the badges are awesome...I can't wait to get to Supplicant, that one's my favorite). Did you ever decide if we'll be able to keep our badges if we spend our points? Thanks!

MeiLin's picture

Most High

I can't program it to do that automatically--I know that much. And I know I can't keep up with it by hand. So we'll see what the system does. If it busts you back a badge, I'm sorry, but that's how it'll be. It's incentive to keep going.

faile486's picture

Petitioner

By 'story question' do mean just a general question about the story that will be answered, or a bonus story request like what had been done before?

seia's picture

Devotee

It works like a bonus story request. You ask a question (and lose some points), it goes into the points story proposals. If it passes that, you get your bonus story.

NorthwoodsMan's picture

Embodiment

I don't know if I want to move on to Postulant. I rather like the Devotee badge. Then again, the supplicant is kind of neat too.

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

Although I have to say, I like them in the order they are up until Supplicant. I just don't like Embodiment as much as Supplicant. Maybe if it were a different color, like purple or something. It's almost the same color as the Petitioner badge. I'm not going to worry about it, though. I think 800 points is a long way away.

MeiLin's picture

Most High

Maybe I'll recolor it. Thanks!

TheBoy's picture

Embodiment

lookin' GOOD! TheBoy likey.

I'll be getting there...soon? I hope?

NorthwoodsMan's picture

Embodiment

Pretty pretty. Now I'm torn. Do I like the Devotee or Embodiment...

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

That came out great! I like it a lot better, and now I'm much more motivated to become an Embodiment Smile

seia's picture

Devotee

Will you be adding the unanswered bonus story questions from the old system to the voting menu? It's looking awfully empty now...

MeiLin's picture

Most High

They will get a static page of their own once I get this kid out of my lap...

NorthwoodsMan's picture

Embodiment

Not only do you shower with your computer...

Never mind.

MeiLin's picture

Most High

It's pretty much attached to my hip. I've even been known to carry it into the kitchen, and I regularly watch TV with it in my lap.

TheBoy's picture

Embodiment

Do you mean "skip the voting process" or "skip the queue entirely?" (For the -200 point story-buys for us high rollers)

MeiLin's picture

Most High

It goes into the queue of guaranteed stories.

TheBoy's picture

Embodiment

Perhaps a rephrase, then?

"Right to insert story question into the queue?" or somesuch?

I might pay -MOAR- points to line-jump.

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

I think I probably would too. As it stands, we never know when our points stories will hit the press, but if we could be next, that would be neat. I don't know how that would work out for you artistically, though. I never figured out whether you were writing them in the order they were requested or if you had to wait until the mood struck.

NorthwoodsMan's picture

Embodiment

Do each of the temples (gods) have their own symbol?

MeiLin's picture

Most High

and I haven't designed them yet. Smile

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

It's going to be super fun to be able to pick a temple. I think we're going to have a lot of Lover's Temple devotees. Actually, do you think we could have that be a poll sometime?

seia's picture

Devotee

I think a poll about which temple people would choose could give some interesting results (for example, Death gods/goddesses usually aren't that popular while people might find Harla more likeable now that she appears in the story more.)

NuanaIvy's picture

Devotee

I wanted to know what this "give points" button is at the bottom of each comment. Is it part of the new system? What does it do? Please excuse me if these questions are totally obvious Wink

MeiLin's picture
seia's picture

Devotee

Do you get some kind of message when it happens or do you have to figure out for yourself where the points suddenly came from?

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

That almost makes it more fun! Now I kind of want to share my points with some random person to see if they can figure out where the came from. I won't yet (because I'm really close to leveling up), but maybe someday.

MeiLin's picture

Most High

It'll be interesting to find out! Smile

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

you just have to figure it out for yourself. Someone gave me points, and I didn't know who until they told me!

NuanaIvy's picture

Devotee

Thanks for answering my question Smile

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

So, I just obtained a new status (and I got my e-mail to indicate that I'm now a Postulant), but my badge hasn't updated. I don't mind, but I thought this was something that got updated automatically, not something you updated by hand. I was actually planning on testing the system by giving away 2 points or so to see if my badge would stay the same, but it didn't change when I leveled up. Any ideas?

MeiLin's picture

Most High

I dunno! It should have upgraded automatically. I did it for you. I will look into this.

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

I appreciate it. This is fun! And the badges are so cool!

MeiLin's picture

Most High

For some reason the badge for Postulant hadn't been defined. It is now. Smile

V's picture

Embodiment

Is this where I would gripe about my shiny red Postulant badge? I used to have the nifty green Supplicant one and my points are still registering in the upper 4's Sad I don't think I ever got a Supplicant upgrade email, either, but I know I had the badge for a while.

MeiLin's picture

Most High

I think it's because I finally activated the postulant badge.

V's picture

Embodiment

...at least until I started posting again. Then I got in rapid succession a devotee, petitioner, and then postulant promotion in my email. Still never a supplicant, and now I'm red again. You're such a naughty woman, you even have kinks in your points system! (thanks so much for taking the time to work on it)

TheBoy's picture

Embodiment

I'm in your boat, V.

V's picture

Embodiment

But in a few hundred points, I hope to be in Allis's boat }:)

NorthwoodsMan's picture

Embodiment

We're supposed to get emails?

Gudy's picture

Embodiment

One each announcing my promotion to Devotee, Petitioner and Postulant status, respectively.

MeiLin's picture

Most High

The problem was, when I gave both you and TheBoy Supplicant status by hand, I unchecked the others. The system promptly promoted you back into those categories and acted as if Postulant was the highest you'd achieved. So now I'm leaving well alone. Smile

TheBoy's picture

Embodiment

I'll say "thank you" for fixing me. Wink

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

think this would work out as well as it did. It really has motivated me to comment more in both the forum and the story comments. Now I read things, and instead of just thinking things about them to myself, I actually contribute to/harass the forum. I don't know if it's worked out that way for anyone else, I just thought I'd share.

MeiLin's picture

Most High

I'm having a hard time keeping up with everything AND writing! Don't let that discourage you, though! i'll figger it out!

TheBoy's picture

Embodiment

In sunshine, rain, and Mei's writing. Worry not.

Capriox's picture

Embodiment

Make A and TheBoy track the forums for you, so you can write more Wink

Also, is there anyway for us to see the "Users By Points" thing again? I think it used to be a link on the sidebar, which you probably swapped out for all the other stuff you've added. Just wondering if there was another way to see it (I'm nosy and wondering how many of us have reached Supplicant status, Postulant status, etc).

MeiLin's picture

Most High

Only I can see it now. Someone expressed a worry that people would feel bad or something, so I should hide that list. I'll poll about putting it back.

And on forum monitoring: I may have to, but I want to know what you are all saying!

MeiLin's picture

Most High

So now I've put a poll up. When I have 200 replies to it, I'll follow its suggestion.

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

just keep a top ten list running, or a top 10 under 800. I think only the people who are racing towards embodiment *cough*V*cough*TheBoy*cough*cough* really care that much how many points other people have, and I know I'm a little bit interested in following that race.

TheBoy's picture

Embodiment

I'm at about 730 right now, if you care THAT much...V passed me for a bit a while ago, but I -think- I'm back atop now...he pre-ordered the book, and that really helped 'im out.

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

post like a madman. It's a good point, though...you both get points for posting how many points you have. Wink It's an easier way to keep track than passing the same point back and forth.

TheBoy's picture

Embodiment

on a couple occasions, I've passed him more than one--I'm planning a stimulus package for him once I break 800. Blum 3 Then, maybe, if you're a good girl, we'll see if we can't help you get there before Davik. Wink

ETA: Wow, he's been on a spree lately, too!

* User V earned 1 points Total now is 747 points.
* User TheBoy lost 1 points Total now is 729 points.

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

is still at 356. Gudy and Katie are closer than that.

TheBoy's picture

Embodiment

yeah, but nobody is racking the points up like Davik is. How long has he been here, a few weeks, maybe? I'm closing in on a year.

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

I was thinking about doing something special in a few weeks when I hit 52 weeks...I'm at 47 now. I think March 31st might be right around a year? Maybe I'll count the weeks back and figure out the exact date at some point.

It's true, too...no one gets points faster than Davik. He has a lot of crazy recipes.

TheBoy's picture

Embodiment

Davik's rocking nearly 10 points/day. I've been here more than 49 weeks, I think...if I were that hardcore, I could've made a couple of OTHER people embodiments alongside me right when they joined.

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

get involved in the forum until recently, though. This is actually the first forum I've participated in since I was 14 or so, but everyone here was just so nice and a lot of people brought up some really interesting topics of conversation. It kind of sucked me in. That, and these books are some of the best new books I've found in a while.

TheBoy's picture

Embodiment

I think posting here has picked up lately--more members, more action, more new topics, &c., &c. It used to be just the stories. Harder to rack up points back then...and some of my comments predate the "points" era, too.

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

at zero, though? I was pretty sure that we got retroactive points for our pre-point system posts, but now I'm not sure. The forum has really picked up, though, and I'm really excited about it. I feel like I've gotten to know people around here a lot better than I did six months ago. I think it helps that we get extra points for new forum topics. People seem to look to start them more now, and it leads to a lot of on topic conversations and a lot of off topic ones.

TheBoy's picture

Embodiment

I didn't think we got retroactive points, and I'm certainly not asking for them. I'm also pretty pleased that this place is taking off. I just hope we can keep the sense of camaraderie that we've got going on.

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

And I'm not asking for them either, I just thought we had them for some reason. I'm really glad people have gotten so involved, whatever the reason.

MeiLin's picture

Most High

I didn't give retroactive points. Sad

TheBoy's picture

Embodiment

and more's the pity! Wink I just wanted to get across the embodiment "finish line" first, and that might could help.

That badge is soooo cool! Congratulations! Smile

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

I was just confused.

V's picture

Embodiment

And the biggest tipping point was the change in the points system Smile While it initially gave people a reason to register and make comments now and then, it also scared people away from chit-chatting or posting things they thought might be off-topic. That inhibition is clearly gone >.>

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

I am firmly of the opinion that this world needs more people with fewer inhibitions.

Davik's picture

Embodiment

I ignore one thread and everyone starts talking about me behind my back... Smile I feel like I've been slacking a little in the last couple of days as far as posting, and I'm going to be out of town for the biophysical society conference for the better part of a week, so you'll get a bit of a break. That said I may just have to go on a recipe spree tonight and see if I can't hit Supplicant before I go; can't have my record of 10/points a day sliding Smile

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

it's only behind your back if you're not looking when we're talking Blum 3

Davik's picture

Embodiment

And it turns out I have internet at my hotel, and with absolutely nothing to do at night you're not getting any reprieve }:)

Gudy's picture

Embodiment

... and I just made it to Supplicant, so I think it's a fair bet that Davik will reach Embodiment status way before me if he keeps up the recipe madness. Smile

Davik's picture

Embodiment

Not only do I have a ridiculous number of recipes, but this is giving me an excuse to actually type them up, since I've been thinking for a few years that I should get all of mine into text file just so they'd be organized. So yeah, my general procedure has been post recipe, then copy and paste into a text file on my computer. I've probably doubled the number I have written up this way Smile

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

a bad plan. I should probably do that at some point too, but I haven't committed to having digital recipes yet. I really like the little photo album I have, and the kitchen computer is a little slow and annoying to use. The photo album is less than optimal, though, if I'm cooking at someone else's house, so maybe I'll get on that.

Davik's picture

Angel Thanks for returning it.
(b) I'm sort of embarrassed by the point accumulation, and by the enormous point-gap between (V and me) and (everybody else).
(c) Even so, I'm all caught up on the forums again, and should be posting as usual for the next while.

Looking forward to the Harsin/Ansella bits.

V's picture

Embodiment

...but I try to take the long view. We've been signed up and contributing for a fair chunk of time. My ~1.9 points/day edges your ~1.6, but there's Postulants with averages almost 8. I'm just trying to stick to my pattern of posting when I think I have something to reasonably contribute, and writing the rest off to the fact that I probably spend too much time here >.>

TheBoy's picture

Embodiment

if I'll still feel like the local "old man on the mountain" (alongside folks like you, and Gudy for his Wiki-power) when these 8 points/day postulants blow past us (no pun intended)...

also, I know that my activity tends to come in waves--there are days like today, where I rack up God knows how many points, and times like this weekend, where I fall off the pace.

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

Don't be embarrassed...the rest of us will just have to take it as a challenge to catch up Smile

I'll need a picture and a description. Then it's what you get. You don't get to pick what you're doing.

V's picture

Embodiment

I don't know what MeiLin had in mind or what other people were planning, but if I ever hit that mark I'd probably share my rl picture/description with MeiLin and then see if I could be introduced as a minor character (page, bartender, etc) without further comment. It would be obvious to me and possibly anyone who knew me, and I would be happy with that Smile

Cameo is separate. Pay 400, and you wind up you appear somewhere--mine showed up in Marri's bonus story.

200 is to submit a generic question with no voting process.

“Pagg damn it!”

Clare-Dragonfly's picture

Recipes are uncopyrightable, probably because most of them are just variations on variations on variations. But I still think it would be a bit rude to just grab other people's recipes to post, not to mention that it's far more interesting if you share your own recipes!

Also, this is my 200th point! YAY! Dance 4

kawaiikune's picture

when I last leveled up. I think I skipped 800 points! It looked like it just went from 799 to 801. Can someone else verify that?

Also, getting to 1000 points officially doesn't break the system.

NorthwoodsMan's picture

Embodiment

You got two points when you created the topic on Robin Hood.

kawaiikune's picture

Embodiment

but 800 was quite a while ago, at least a couple of weeks, and I know I hit 800 with a comment, not a new forum topic. I was just wondering if anyone else had noticed that, or if I was crazy.

eloriane's picture

Devotee

What exactly is the "voting process" for bonus stories? I mean, I get that we pay points to vote for them, but how does that translate into them being written? Do they need a certain number of points before the move into the queue, or is it the one with the most points at a given time, or what? Would voting for a story more than once get it onto the queue faster? I'm curious!

MeiLin's picture

Most High

I hope to get more than one a week out soon.

TheBoy's picture

Embodiment

I had thought we might be able to spend more than one point to vote for the same story multiple times.
The system does not currently support that.
Is that as you had desired?

MeiLin's picture

Most High

right now, that's what I intended. Thoughts?

TheBoy's picture

Embodiment

idunno. I like the way I imagined it, but I think it might bias things towards folks with craploads of points and little imagination. I can't figure out who that might be... :whistle:

Davik's picture

Embodiment

Well, one way or another someone with craploads of points can always just buy a question Blum 3 Maybe allowing multiple point expenditures MeiLin can get some of us to blow a bunch of points in a bidding war over questions.

TheBoy's picture

Embodiment

Otherwise, once I buy my cameo (less than 100 points...I don't want to give up my embodimenthood), I'm gonna be stuck just buying bonus stories every 200 points.

MeiLin's picture

Most High

If you want a story, just buy one. Wink

Davik's picture

Embodiment

This may be posted elsewhere, and I'm just too lazy (sleep deprived, stressed, etc.) to go find it, but I'm not altogether sure how the points questions work at this point. Do all of them just sit in a queue and the highest one at any given time gets written, or is this an issue of they can gain points for a set period of time, and the highest proposed question from that time period can be voted on? I honestly don't think I'll be asking one any time soon (and I may just wait until I have enough for a guaranteed story and auction it off again), but I'm kind of curious.

@ 100 points, you can pay 10 to post a question for voting.
@ 400 points, you can pay 200 points to ask a question and skip the voting process.

Whoever you are, if you have a REALLY GOOD question, and think I'd like it, you can PM me, and we'll see if we can't work something out--involving you sending me some points (nontrivial number, depending on your question quality, and how much I've got to burn).

I notice all the points story and voting references have been taken out. Is that just while you're on hiatus, or a more semi-permanent thing?

I'm thinking hard about what the bonuses should be. Right now, there's no way I can reliably write points stories so I don't want to promise them when I'm not sure I can deliver. I want the bonuses to be good.
