Numbers

I've got 11 out of the 24 badges on Jam Rewards

 

An idle moment - I counted up the points we could get - it falls far short of the top rewards

 

Getting EVERY one gives you 13,460 points (plus you have to travel to every BB event in the world)

 

It is therefore impossible to do Orlando etc

 

Personally I'm down to 260 points having spent mine on clothes for my friends (they like them)

 

I still feel cheated now I've done the math tho

 

Thoughts?

 

I will relay my findings to BB so gimme a day or two

Re: Numbers

I'd say just treat the points as a secondary (or lower) motivation for participating here. If you make them worth too much, it will attract a lower quality of participation from the kind of person who has nothing useful to contribute but contributes it anyway just for the points.

That screws it up for the rest of us who are either trying to help others, need help from others, or both. Tragedy of the commons...

Re: Numbers

Yeah - I agree with your comment here Peter but I'm miffed that our help to the community is devaluded via a few selfish people

 

I'm not upset about the rewards - I've had lots of them, I'm annoyed that some are not available

 

Its false advertizing

 

Lots of my stuff has BB written on it :smileyhappy:

 

I have noticed several incidents of pumping the likes recently (also not good)

 

My numbers are real as I  spend a few hours a day helping

When you see that (generally it's pretty obvious) just use the Report Inappropriate Content link to point it out.

 

We've started using the term "water-bottling" to refer to it, since they seem to want the water bottle rewards ;-). You can probably just tell the mods something like "This user may be water-bottling... lots of useless posts which are all liked by the same couple of other obviously fake accounts."

 

The mods will clean things up quickly (i.e. delete posts and/or ban them), or will have a chat with the user to clarify the forum rules for them.
