Participation Points

◒ What are they?

Participation Points, also known as PP, are earned through OOC participation in making this forum run smoothly, and they can be redeemed for IC prizes! For example, anytime you post in our typo-spotting topic and we fix the mistake, you get points. There will be plenty of other opportunities to earn PP as well, so keep your eyes open! Most ways to earn PP will be detailed in the post following this one.

(Fellow admins and full mods, keep in mind that we are exempt from PP. We don't get these rewards because we are slaves to the site. Slaves, I say! Temps can still earn PP, however.)

◒ How can I keep track?

You can post in this topic to keep track of a running total of your PP until you are ready to redeem them for a prize. Please only post once, and then edit that post when needed. Mods, please edit the member's post when you redeem some of their points for prizes.

◒ Are they cumulative?

No. Whenever you redeem a certain amount of points, those points will be removed from your running total. You'll have to save up for the prize you really want!

The Prizes

◒ 5 points

x4 berries of choice OR x1 random specialty pokeball OR x2 supply packs.

◒ 15 points

x1 rare candy OR x2 sweet hearts OR x1 random gourmet honey.

◒ 25 points

x1 half-price voucher OR x2 skill patch.

◒ 50 points

x1 random held item OR x1 random evolution item.

◒ 60 points

x1 Pokedex OR x1 saddle fit to a Pokemon of your choice.

◒ 75 points

+1% shiny encounter chance OR x1 random Pokedex upgrade.

Earning PP

◒ Typo / Mistake Spotting

(2 PP) Post in our topic and we fix the mistake. You will not earn the PP if we feel like you are abusing this system, if you are obnoxious or impolite about it, or if we deem it wasn't actually a mistake and thus doesn't need fixing.

◒ Suggestions

(1 PP) Post a suggestion in this Questions and Feedback forum that does NOT get implemented. The suggestion must be legitimate and well thought-out to get points.

(3-5 PP) Post a suggestion in this Questions and Feedback forum that does get implemented. We will determine how many PP you earn based on how well thought-out the suggestion is and how much of the suggestion we implement.

◒ Refer a Friend

(2 PP) If you refer a friend, you can claim this reward after they get their first character approved. There is currently no limit as to how many referrals you can get, but if this is abused I will implement one.

◒ Redesigned Pokemon Sprites

(5 PP) I would like Terrene to have its own versions of Pokemon such as Shellos, Basculin, and Vivillon. If you can redesign these Pokemon (and I approve of the redesigning), I will award 5 PP per Pokemon sprite. The sprites must be redesigned in the XY/SM fashion, meaning they must be animated gifs and they must have the same design/feel as all the other sprites. Good luck, and thanks in advance!

NOTES: Shellos and Basculin can have East/West forms or North/South forms, or perhaps all four. [South Shellos is done!] Vivillon needs one form for each of the major geographical areas: Fairy Island, Desert Strip, Rolling Mountains, Lion's Plains (AJ has suggested for Lion's Plains and I really like it), Western Great Forest, Eastern Great Forest, and Paradise Island.

◒ Create Sprites for NPCs

(5 PP) I would love to have sprites for our major NPCs. If you're good at making or editing trainer sprites, try your hand at one of our NPCs! If the admin team approves of it, you'll get the participation points.
