… nah, not quite what you think. Well, somewhat. But it’s just gotten a bit more meaningful.
Previously, you could ‘claim’ challenges by simply hitting the ‘Claim it!’ button without doing anything else. Adding a photo to validate your claim was optional. This led to loads of people swarming our office and up in arms, protesting for a fairer system. Okay, okay … we kid. There were no protests. But loads of people we spoke to brought up the same concern.
We’ve heard you! Even from our end, we could spot attempts to game the system by users claiming challenges which they obviously hadn’t done. (; Yes, we’re watching folks!
So … what’s new? Well, GameMaki is about sharing and discovering experiences ain’t it – so … claims will no longer go through unless you share YOUR experience doing that challenge. Submit a blank claim? Nuh uh, no points for you brudda!
Empty claims are so not cool. What’s the point of claiming a challenge when you can’t
boast brag tell everyone about how it went?
Additionally, we also feel that your experiences will bring more value to the challenges. As human beings, we are largely dependent on peer affirmation. People want to know more about how other people feel before deciding whether to do a particular activity or check out a particular place. So, share away. People are listening and so are we!
Oh, and of course – you may still upload a photo for an additional 10 points. (;
