I am sad that I won't ever earn enough reputation to actually win one of the monthly prizes...I do visit the site almost every day, and upload my data every time I close the game, but I don't often comment, and the comments I make are usually buried under pointless, unmoderated comments on pages similar to Bloodied Arcanite Reaper. That page seriously needs to be cleaned up when 3 of the top 4 comments make the same reference and all get crazy amounts of upvotes.
People uprated the comments and we don't override the community's assessment lightly or without very good reason. If people found the first one helpful and the rest just got in the way then others would also downrate the subsequent comments. The fact that this hasn't happened shouldn't be ignored. I see you've taken part in the process by rating comments and that's great but sometimes you have to deal with the fact that others have a different view of things.
Sad that I've already gained a lot of the "easy" rep (thanks one-off comment I barely remember making!).Excited to work on the "hard", though!
It may seem easy but a comment that lots of people have found useful and wanted to recommend to others is exactly the kind of contribution we love and want to reward with the Rep system. Sounds like you earned it to me, even if you weren't particularly trying.
Lol, just actually clicked that link in the opening post; didn't realize that I was a part of that top 200 =P.
Cool, BUY MOAR NAGAS :D
Nice reputation, Sas.Also, do we get bonus rep for complimenting Ashelia's choice of avatar?
Deffinently think it is a duck! rap rap! :PI think it is a good idea... and i think wowhead is awesome! i use it alot, it has helped me quite some times whit things i could not find a solution for any other places! ;)/Mysterical the huntress
sneaky way too get more people uploading data, mesa like.
To address some concerns--and also good feedback, too!--the reason we chose it to be top 200 is exactly that. It's a fairly small giveaway, prizes will usually be $75-150 level, things like TCG mounts or headsets. Cool prizes. So if we opened it to anyone who gained any reputation, it would suddenly be like 50k people are eligible. But here it's defacto limited to 200 people, meaning you really have a genuine chance if you put in some effort to get a reward for it.The point of this wasn't really to make a contest, it was just to say look. Some of you contribute a lot. Here's a little incentive, because we do notice you and we think it's rad that you leave helpful comments and such. :)
An interesting and nice way to motivate ppl to contribute to Wowhead more, hopefully it helps to improve the database where it needs to be. :-)Question: is it possible that the system is somehow "overloaded" with a lot of new contributions? I seem to be unable to upload screenshots since yesterday. (After a while of "uploading" it jumps back to where I started with no effect. I don't even get to the point where I can crop the image or add a note/subtitle.)
This way they can pick their friends.
