We’re only a couple of weeks away from our Out of Beta launch in the first or second week of January and are very excited to show you what we’ve been working on! The entire Crowdtap team has been working day and night to make the updated version of Crowdtap as awesome as possible for this release.
As you may have heard in our Moving Out of Beta blog post, one of the big new features we’re going to be launching is the Crowdtap Store where you’ll be able to use your points earned on the site to purchase gift cards, donations to charity, and other awesome items. We believe that the new store is going to be great for all members because instead of only a small proportion of members earning cash for some of their activities on Crowdtap, all of our members are going to be earning redeemable points for all of their participations. Additionally, we will be launching missions in this release that will be available to all members and each mission is going to reward bonus points for completion. You will also receive brand new plaques for completing missions, which means that we will be removing all of our current types of badges (but don’t worry, our mission plaques are much cooler looking!)
Seeing as we’re going to be rewarding redeemable points for all activities on Crowdtap, we will be updating the point system to more accurately reflect our current rewards system (i.e. discussion top awards are going to be worth 15,000 points in the new system as opposed to the 1,000 points they are currently worth). This means some point values are going to increase while others decrease, however, earning redeemable points for all Crowdtap activities along with big mission bonuses is going to result in more rewards for everyone!
Additionally, because we are going to be changing our current point system, we are going to be launching a new leveling system that will allow you to reach higher levels in a shorter amount of time. We just want to give you a heads up that your current Crowdtap level is going to increase a few notches and your nameplate will most likely be changing as well. To give you a sneak peak, we’ll be adding new levels like Slate, Marble, and Titanium (and that’s just scratching the surface)!
We are really excited about these changes and think they are going to bring the whole Crowdtap experience together. Please let us know your thoughts or feedback you have below!
