Empire Avenue provides a neat way of Social Networking through “missions” and reward incentives. However, sometimes people merely “play the game” and choose to “win” by cheating. That is, they click the mission button to claim the rewards, but never satisfy the mission requirements.
Recently, I chose to create an admittedly somewhat complex mission. It would take a good 5 to 7 minutes to complete. The reward was 14K eaves and 20GB of free cloud storage, so I thought it was worth the trouble. However, of the seven who clicked the button, only 1 actually completed the requirements. The mission details are provided below for your critique.
Today, I am going a bit looney with this. I notified those that did not satisfy the mission to give them an opportunity to explain why and give them another chance to complete it. I am considering blocking and publishing the ticker symbols of those that still don’t comply. My blocked list is getting quite large… I think others would benefit from knowing who the thieves are.
Of course, fair is fair… I invite everyone to publicly post their likes or dislikes of me.
I archived the mission so that nobody could draw conclusions from the list of those that completed it… since one on the list actually did complete it. But here is the mikssion copy I used… notice it requires “installing the app” (not just clicking the link):
14k get a “copy” account.
When you use my affiliate link you will earn an extra 5 GB of cloud storage. That means you’ll start with 20GB for free!
You must click through and install the app to satisfy the mission… Then we both win – I just get more free space and I can use about 150 GB in the cloud. You too get an affiliate link to send out.
What do you think? Should I make known the mission thieves?
