Re: How are rewards calculated?

I had 9 notifications this morning all from one user this morning bravo and kudos.   I have one friend referral, and he doesn't even participate in the community.

 

I just help out because I like to.  I'm also pretty critical of issues that have been around for 2 years.

Rewards are determined using a secret formula known only to aliens

@katiatall I'm assuming you're referring the community reward?  I believe that the explaination we have received in the past is to not encourage/enable people to game the system.  In other words, if you knew the weighting formula favoured a certain type of activity, you might try to do mostly that, and a lot of it, in order to try to artificially inflate your relative ranking and thus your reward payout.  I think the thought is that keeping the criteria unknown encourages us all to just be helpful and see what happens.  Basically.

Totally agreed. If the formula is known, only heavy weitage items will have participation. This in a way hampers the growth in the community

Hmmm I wonder why all the secrecy around how rewards are awarded.  Are we going to go through this again?

ETA I forgot this thread https://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/Getting-Started/How-does-one-customize-their-avatar/t...

 

From your friend Ohitora

These are Bravos received

I bet if we were to go through the top three in the picture above it would look very similar to this.

 

Now the Bravos you have given and for someone that says they Bravo everyone or was that Ohitaro can't remember I get your accounts mixed up it doesn't seem that you do.

Re: How are rewards calculated?

@katiatall, it is kept a secret so there is no gaming of the system for the rewards and you have been told this before.

 You have given @ohitora 20 Bravos and they have 120 posts

You have given @yiatioxi-ok 19 Bravo's and they have 69 posts

You have given @will13am (the all-time Bravo leader) 3 Bravo's and he has 7714 posts

You have given @srlawren, 3 bravos and he has 9016 Posts

Sorry srlawren for using you in the example but it was just perfectly obvious why the formula is kept secretive

 

So I can see why they keep it a secret

but I think your examples are — well Trump like - fake news-  and is a direct attack.
