Poster of the Week Reward Program

edited August 2016 in General
Starting today, active and leading forum members will get rewards for their participation.

All you have to do is contribute to the forum and interact with other members and you will gain points.

You can see if you made it on the leaderboard by checking the Activity page: https://forums.oculus.com/community/activity

Each week, the weekly leader will receive a piece of Oculus swag. It could be a t-shirt, stickers, or something random.

I'll pull the stats at 10PM Pacific every Sunday. This week's winner is Blyss4226!



Keep in mind, there are a couple of rules:
  • Each user can only win once. In that event, the reward will go to the next in line.
  • Point manipulation (aka cheating) will result in permanent disqualification and a forum ban.
  • Oculus employees are not eligible (don't worry, I won't steal all the swag).

Anyway, have fun and good luck!

    Great idea! Looking forward to the time when I have my Rift...you'll have a hard time getting rid of me, then!
    Also good to see there's no mention of the rewards being restricted to US citizens only...wait... :p

    Bit confused by this, how do you gain points and who determines the allocation of them ?

    Likes, LOLs, post count, and the various other stuff that gets you forum badges. Have a look at your own profile as well as other people's to get an idea of what badges exist. It's generally stuff that encourages involvement and good forum citizenship.

    I will do some manner of video when I get it, look forward to that!

    I actually need a good t shirt... all mine are kinda old and crappy XD

    @TwoHedWlf - most of my points came from https://forums.oculus.com/community/discussion/34556/how-the-oculus-rift-made-me-cry-and-what-it-means-to-me/p1 , not from complaining about anything. The only thing I've complained about is the scratch issue, but that seems to have been at least partly my fault.

    Anyway yeah, totally unexpected. Nice though. Glad to see Oculus making an effort to connect back with the community. Keep it up!

    Wat. I posted a comment and it said it had to be approved? WTF? I was just saying I would make a video when I got the thing, and it's nice to see Oculus trying to connect with the community and they should keep it up.

    @Blyss4226 That's the spam filter. I just approved the post and verified your account so you won't see that again.

    I've been getting a few of those "to be reviewed" messages. For me it happens when you try to post a link...but I think I circumvented that filter by removing the http part of the url.
    @cybereality : if it's not too much trouble, I would like one of those verifications too, please? :)

    @cybereality Thank you!

    Yeah figured the link did it. Kind of odd when it's an internal link lol

    So effectively the 4 most active members will be on a monthly cycle of free stuff? We better hope their internet cuts out at some point :wink: 

    Seriously though this is a great feature. It's a very effective way to keep everyone engaged at very low cost so everyone is a winner.

    Gratz Blyss  :D

    But maybe if you made them eligible, we might be able to lure a few of them here from reddit. :)

    Yeah, that's something I've been trying to do (unsuccessfully).
