A new achievement and points reward system has appeared on the website 4 months ago !
In this (long post) you will learn as much as we know regarding both amps and achievements !
WHAT IS THE AMPS ?
The Amps are points you can earn buy doing some actions on the website.
WHAT ARE ACHIEVEMENTS ?
By doing certain actions on the website, you will win an achievement, which gives at the same time some Amps.
WHAT IS THE POINT OF THIS ?
As far as we know, we will be able to use them at some point, but for what purpose is still unknown.
HOW DO I EARN THEM ?
Not by private messaging me, that’s for sure. You will learn everything just under this sentence.
Actions that gives Amps (last update : 27/12/2011) :
First of all, each action has limits. You can do an action a certain number of time before it does not give any amps. Those “limits” sometimes are daily, sometimes permanent.
-Uploading a new avatar = +40 amps
(only work once)
-Liking a news or content = +2 amps
(works 5 times in a day)
-Sharing content = +5 amps
(works two times in a day)
-Daily connection = +5 amps
-Posting a picture = +10 amps
(does not work anymore)
-Group/Forum Post = +10 amps
(works 5 times in a day. Editing counts as a new post)
-New group/forum topic = +5 amps
(works two times a day)
-Comment on News Post = +10 amps
(works 5 times a day)
-Doing an order= +20, +50, +100
(depends on the amount of your order!)
-Choosing ninjas or pirates = +25 amps + Achievement “ninjas” or “pirates”
(This can be done in the “profile” section)
-Changing side = +0 amps + Achievement “turn cloak”
(You have to change the side you chose)
-Friending Volt = 25 amps + Achievement
(He’s not a bad robot)
Liking 25 contents => Achievement Liking LVL1
Liking 50 contents => Achievement Liking LVL2
Liking 75 contents => Achievement Liking LVL3
Liking 100 contents => Achievement Liking LVL4
Amps’ like-earning Explained by @pedgz :
I gained same number of amps equal to the number of likes required to reach that level (e.g., reach level 1, gain achievement and 25 amps; level 2, 50 amps)
-Connecting every days for a week => Fidelity LVL1 +25 amps
-Connecting 7 extra days => Fidelity LVL2 +25 amps
-+25 amps each time you pass a level
-The last fidelity achievement is LVL9
-Completing every information on the profil : Profil Complete +50 amps
(If you don’t have any gamertage, or psnid, just write it in the blank)
-Subscribing to the newsletter : +25 amps
-Commenting 100 times : Chat Master +100 amps
Sometimes, you can win the “No points…” achievement, this seems to be a bug of some kind, since you receive no email, and it’s not written it the achievement list in our profile.
Of course, gaining Amps also gives you a Rank.
500 Amps makes you a Regular
1000 Amps makes you a Prospect
2500 Amps makes you a Premium Prospect
X Amps makes you a Platinium Prospect
5500 Amps makes you a Gold Prospect
7000 Amps makes you an Elite Prospect
8500 Amps makes you a Member
10500 Amps makes you a Premium Member
12500 Amps makes you a Platinium Member
Also, even if you can read things like:
Written by @jerociraptor :
“All I can say is keep an eye on the store and start gathering Amps! ”
This do not mean : SPAM AMPS GUYS
Now that we know how to win them, you will be spotted as a spammer quite easily, and it will be pointless to spam just to reach the top users, since many of us are here for almost 4 months and are daily users.
