Probably One of the Most Important Posts You Will See on this Blog

PORNARIUM POINTS

Hawtstuff devised a way to reach out the the community and also allow the community to influence the game as a way of saying thank you for all of your help. You can read more by clicking read more :)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Terms of Agreement/Restrictions

YOU MUST READ AND FOLLOW ALL OF THE ToA OR YOU WILL BE VERY, VERY  SORRY!!!!!!

1)      You absolutely MUST provide compelling evidence in order to be eligible for earning and redeeming Pornarium Points.
This means:
A.      Taking screenshots that must show your username your post, and the date/time. Easiest way to do this is to take a full-screenshot while highlighting your post. I must be able to see the post's URL clearly. Here is an example of a PP-earning screenshot.




·         To take a screenshot, press the print key screen, paste into MS paint, and save as either .png or .jpeg. Or you can use this freeware software  to take screenshots.
B.     You also may want to create a web archive in case the web page 404's.               
 C. Insufficient evidence, such as "I said I did it, give me points"= 0 PP & no rewards.
 D. Try to keep consistent usernames b/w sites to prevent confusion during auditing process.
 E. On anonymous user sites (4chan, 7chan, etc) you will need to use a name with a password for auditing purposes
2)      To redeem your PP for a reward, send an archive of your screenshots, web archives, and/or images/bug-reports to hawtstuff33@gmail.com for auditing.
o   Subject line should be what reward you're redeeming, i.e. "NPC Commission."
o   Body  of e-mail should include relevant details (outlines, commission specifics)
o   If you are including bug reports/images, archive those separately from screenshots & links/web archives.
3)         PP are non-transferrable/non-tradable & are used up when redeemed for PP Rewards
4)        PP Reward costs are non-negotiable and are subject to change depending on how much specific rewards strain our volunteers, are purposely abused, and/or interfere with releasing builds.
5)        PP Reward Terms are only subject to change due to unforeseeable loopholes or unintended miswordings in terms. A joint project/fan committee will hear each cases and collectively decide if the reward term is deemed misworded if such a conflict arises.
6)        Max # of pending commissions = 5
o   Any other commissions must wait in queue.
§  Based on current workload, queued commissions may wait an additional 1- 6 weeks after all pending commissions end. This gives us breathing room to finish anything else that needs taking care of in the project.
7)        In regards to picking Pornarium Friday Night Live Games, the first person to redeem that PP reward will choose for that month only, and cannot do so again the next month
8)        PLEASE DO NOT SPAM OTHER SITES, BE SMART WHEN POSTING!!!
9)         Long-term artists and writers may post links to their profiles from other sites, and post their stories/artwork on our blog, but they may NOT directly post material that is on our forbidden content list

  6. Can I just donate you MONEY and get those points?

    1. This is a community project, donations are not accepted.

    2. Thats really sad. Cause crowdfunding for such project, from my perspective, could improve motivation for people who do the majority of specialized work, that can't be done by any guy from street (like coding).

      And it kinda silly when I can help project by spending my time, but I can't help it via money that I earn spending my time on hard-working.

      Delete
    3. I understand, though it has always been a decision of mine since the very start that I did not ever want this project to become donation based. I'm happy to have the help of the community (you guys are awesome), especially with bugs and the sort.

      This system is Hawtstuff's idea, I think his main goal is trying to spread awareness and create incentives for writers. I'm not going to get involved in the process of keeping track of points as I simply do not have the time nor energy to do such a thing, but I am willing to implement requests of people who have accumulated a lot of points.

      This also doesn't mean that I won't implement suggestions or listen to anyone's feedback if they don't have some sort of point value attached to them, I'm just going to keep doing what I always do and continue to improve the game, it may not always be at as fast a pace as I'd like but I'm never going to stop :)

  7. To be fair, anyone who works on this project is like family to me. Yes, I've put in an average of 12 hours a week for the past 2 weeks, but so what? Everyone who volunteers time to this project plays just as an essentially important part to the team.

    I, nor Taco, would be comfortable accepting donations since it would be like stealing from our volunteers, or in my case those who I consider dear friends. Does this make sense? We do this for you guys, not money =P

    1. You can pay artist to draw/modify picture (example) with those money, not take it to spend on yourself.
      But ok, it's your decision after all, still, there are ways to spend money on community project.

      Delete
    2. This might be stretching it a bit.. but maybe if ppl really wanted to go that route, they could commision an artist themself. Artist draws picture, game gets picture, then person who paid for the comission would get the pp for adding a new picture to the game. Guess the same could go for writing. Sounds win, win content wise for the game. Thoughts?

  9. Please note, dear friends, that none of the previously mentioned applies in any way to the Wiki. So don't start doing edits and then fish for points. The wiki exists as a separate entity to the game and its related content.

    That being said feel free to make updates where applicable though.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Fair enough.
    Just don't accept stupid or unsuitable item/event/NPC ideas simply because somebody has a lot of points.

    "From now on, you will receive early access to new events a day before that build is released to the public."
    Does that mean that you are currently delaying builds even though they're ready to be released?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Here's what usually happens.

      Taco makes some major changes to the parser, fixes stuff and as soon as he's done with said changes immediately posts a build. He lets me know ahead of time about when he will be done.

      Meanwhile, I do a final run-through of any events that have been passed by Nabiki before giving them to Taco to include in his build. Since I usually finish all of the final reviews before Taco finishes his work, the new events wait for a short period before Taco creates a build.

      tl;dr there are no intentional delays :)

    2. These are often unfinished and broken so I don't really recommend anyone get in on these :P

  11. Ghee, points here points there, hey i joined this project because like writing and would like to place my ideas in-game, just hope it doesn't come back to bite me T_T

  15. Cool, a very nice way to get the community to help out :) As TK already knows, if there's anything more you'd like me to draw send an e-mail my way! I don't like being tied down to a "contract" for lack of better words, so just send me a request and I'll see what I can do, if anything at all :P

    Also, I've been thinking about maybe re-doing the map. If I do, I'll send you the new version and you decide which one to use :)
