Good day good people.
Not so good, after Man United's dismal loss against MK Dons... But, I've brainwashed myself with Di Maria videos to cheer me up.
So, onto the actual topic today, and that is gamification. Breaking that down, it actually is about the gaming elements we have added to the website.
Since the launch, you will see that you earn different cups and get points for your interaction on the site. This adds some fun to your profile and also lets readers build up their ranking on the website.
We currently put out an article weekly to congratulate the Power Users of the Week, and are working on some other rewards behind the scenes.
Most of the feedback we receive is positive, and guys love earning different cups. Of course, there have been some people concerned that certain readers try to earn points quickly and spoil the experience for others.
It is important to note though, that we deduct a large number of points from people who are caught trying to cheat the system, and there is also ban processes in place to discourage bad behaviour.
I'd love to know your thoughts on our gamification, and also what elements you might like added to profiles.
