'Souls Advertising Event

Table of Contents

It's been a bit quiet here over the last few months and we think it'll be good to ramp up on our advertising for a little bit! Naturally, the more help we can get, the better, so we're making an event of it. ;)

Earn Points!

There are a lot of ways you can help us advertise and each method, listed below, will earn you points!

  • Social media plug (5 points): Mention and promote 'Souls on a social media channel of your choice (Twitter, Tumblr, FB, whatever!). Be sure to @ or tag us properly if it's on a site where we have an account!
  • Game advertisement (2 points): Post our ad at another forum RPG. Take care to read through all their advertising rules, and most importantly -- make sure someone else hasn't already advertised there in the last 6 months. Adverts that break rules will dock the player 5 points in this advertising event!
  • Topsite voting/bump (1 point): Vote for us in our list of topsites and post to the topic to say you've done so! Max one point per day. The URL for this should be for your specific reply in the topic, not the URL of just the topic.
  • Successfully refer a joiner! (20 points): If a new joiner lists you in the "How you found 'Souls?" field of their joining application, you'll get 20 points after they're accepted and have made one IC post!

Reply to this post once and keep track of your points as you go! Please use this format for each qualifying method:


Code: Select all

So your post might look something like this:

'Souls RPG is an advanced writing, collaborative RPG set in post-apocalyptic Eastern Canada, featuring canines and werecanines. We've been going strong for over ONE DECADE, and we'd love for you to join us!

Humans have been gone since 1988, but the wildlife flourishes. Wolves, dogs, coyotes, and jackals have gained a peculiar advantage: the ability to take a humanoid form. They have become the Luperci -- or not, in some cases. Normal canines remain in many places, too.

'Souls has been consistently active since 2001. Our community provides both a stimulating IC environment and a welcoming, fun OOC environment. The game rating is PG-13, though marked mature content is permitted. Many things -- packs with unique cultures, our RP Guide and huge Wiki, a flourishing art community, and our awesome members make 'Souls what it is. We'd love for you to come join us!

Convert Ad Points to WotD Points

You can trade in your advertisement points for Word of the Day points at a 1:2 ratio. That is, if you have 10 ad points and want to trade all of them in, you can get 20 WotD points!

However, if you're trading in points, those points cannot qualify you for the prize tiers below. For example, if you have 30 ad points and trade 20 of them for WotD points, you would only have 10 points lefts and would not qualify for the 25 point prize tier below. Traded points still count for the top overall prize though.

Prize Tiers

Here are the prize tiers! The tiers do stack, so if you have 50 ad points, you qualify for both the 25 and 50 point tiers.

  • 25 points -- Advertising participant icon for your title!
  • 50 points -- Custom chibi drawing by Raze!
  • 75 points -- Custom fullbody (Lupus or Secui only) drawing by Mel!

There will also be a prize for the top overall advertiser -- the very last 'Souls zipper bag, suitable for all your small item carrying needs, featuring the 2013 birthday art. No other zipper bags are planned at this time. The winner will also get a small, custom drawing by Kiri in traditional media, to be shipped along with the zipper bag. Winner must be comfortable with providing an address!

Deadline?

You have the whole month! Get your qualifying ads in by 11:59pm EST September 30th!

Clarifications!

  • You must reply to the topsite voting topic to receive points for voting. You may get a maximum of one point per day via this method. Please link the URL of your reply. You should be voting in all of the topsites prior to replying. Obviously we can't really check this, but please be honest! As always, cheating in events and games just means we do fewer of them! :(
  • Only post once per social media account. Don't spam your followers with daily ads, please! If you have multiple accounts (multiple Twitter accounts, multiple Tumblr accounts, etc), you may post once per account. Please do not create new accounts specifically for this event. That defeats the purpose!

Question: does each vote up for top sites count as 1 point, or is it 1 point per day, or 1 point for the month?
