SpoilerTV - TV Spoilers

HOT NOW :

Update: 27th October 2011 Once again thought it was a good idea to bring this back up as we have a lot of new people visiting the site who email asking me what this all is :)

We have over 2500 users using the badgeville system now and we hope to roll out some more show specific badges soon, along with hopefully a cool personal notification system. Stay tuned for that.

Remember, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate in contacting me direct or by leaving a comment below.


Hey All,

We're pleased to announce an exciting new feature to SpoilerTV. As we mentioned recently we're doing away with the Monthly Commentator rewards and replacing them with this new feature.

The SpoilerTV Rewards and Loyalty System

Basically in the past we were only able to provide the monthly draw for people who made it into our top 10 commentators list. This was not fair for other users who help SpoilerTV in a number of other ways, eg ReTweeting our content, visiting the site, Facebook Liking, Voting on Polls, Clicking the Google+1 button etc.

So we're pleased to announce the new system

Overview
Basically whenever you preform one of these actions, you'll be rewarded with points.



As you can see above each activity gives you a different set of points. As you get more points you get more badges.



Also you get badges for completing so many actions of a type. Lets say your a regular commentator on the site. Every time you make a comment you get some points. You get Comment Badges as you make so many comments. eg

Level 1 - 5 Comments
Level 2 - 10 Comments
Level 3 - 20 Comments
etc
etc

When you unlock a new badge/level you'll see a notification popup to inform you of your award.



As you can see we've added some new widgets to the sidebar.



These allow you to see the top users for the week, month and all time and you can track your progress here.

Each month we'll take the top 10 people from the Monthly list and they will be entered into the prize draw for a free DVD Boxset of their choice.

You can track your progress by hovering your mouse over the header widget



The other widget that you'll see is that of the Activity Stream. This shows you all the recent badges/levels etc for all users across the site.



If you find the scrolling distracting you can simply click on the Pause link at the bottom of the widget.

Using the System
When you first start you'll see the Signup/Sign In links.



Click the link and connect with your Twitter account. (We hope to support Facebook accounts soon) If you don't have a Twitter Account you can create one very quickly for the purposes of this system. It's simply used to log you in and track your progress

And that's it. Once connected any activity like commenting, voting on a poll, visiting the site, Facebook Liking, Using the Tweet button,clicking the Google +1 Button will all give you points.

You can click on My Rewards link to see all the badges/awards etc that you currently have as well as seeing how many points you need to get to the next level.



Clicking on the View Profile Button will give you more details



Changing your Settings
The settings page allows you to upload your Avatar/Photo that you want to be seen as.



You can also turn off/on a variety of Notifications.

NOTES and KNOWN ISSUES
1) You are only rewarded if you are logged in. Make sure it shows you as logged in at the top right sidebar.
2) Anyone found spamming the comments or trying to game the system just to get more points will be banned.
3) This system will have some bugs/glitches/odd behaviours so please bare with us during the early days and report them in the comments below.
