Notice: This is a Discussion topic, this will be rolled out at the start of next month when votes reset. We can't wait to discuss this with you, and hopefully make it better! This is not final.

Here at GenuineMC we are going to spend more time on giving you, the player a reason to vote for our Server on Planet Minecraft and Minecraft MP. The solution, a great new competition system which everyone can benefit from.


The Idea.
The top voters, lets say the voters that have voted for over 80% of the month go in the draw to win a $50 Coupon & 50 Vote Points, and two runners up will receive a $20 coupon & 20 Vote points. Coupons can be shared, split and spent on ranks.

If at the end of the month, GenuineMC is First/Seconded on the PMC leader boards everybody with 50% of the days voting will receive a gift, this could be a double XP weekend, free diamonds or anything else we can think of.

Discussion.
What do you guys think as the players, would you like to see this rolled out? Do you think would be unfair, anything else? Lets us know! We also would love to hear your suggestions and what you think of it.

Vote Poll.
Great Idea, I'll be sure to vote!

maybe have another rank or something for top voters that we add AS A SUBGROUP so we don't ruin their current rank, which gives them access to special things, which I don't know what it could be but yea

I like this idea! The only possible issue I can see would be the times when votes don't go through properly, like when the server is down, or a voting site is down, or even the issues with multiple different people on the same IP address voting, like with me and BRITISHConnah.

But hopefully that stuff will be at a minimum. Hopefully. Either way, this seems like a really good way to reward voting! :d

Edit: lol at the person who voted that it was a great idea but they're not gonna vote

I love this idea! I think it could encourage more players to vote and the more votes, the higher the ranking :d

I like this idea, but like Dark said,
we should add extra ranks for voting so that the current donation system doesn't go out of whack.

I think that this idea is okay. I feel like those who actually donated and payed money could feel kinda cheated that people can get the same rank simply by voting, which is something that person may have done before this was implemented.

Like, somone was a frequent voter in the past, and they donated actual money to get their rank. And then this person who just joined in the past month, voted everyday (like the first person did in the past and possibly present aswell), and they got a payed rank due to sheer luck.
I just think that the coupons are a little over compensating...

Now the vote points I can get behind, maybe with a smaller amount of vote points though. Fifty to one person who just did about a months worth of voting seems a bit much in one go.
Flowers are just my thing.

You say that Zein, but a month's worth of voting is what, 60 points? If it were someone who voted that often, I wouldn't see the problem in around 50 points, especially being as a drawing and not for everybody.

The coupon thing might be a lil over the top though yeah.

I do like the server-wide perks though! While double EXP and the like are more likely to be done, diamonds would give people money to spend! At my shop! I have no shame.

How would someone get a $100 rank with a $50 dollar coupon?
