Hello beautiful Chicks!
How is it already the end of May? We went from freezing cold to Summer weather here in Toronto but we aren’t complaining ;)
We are popping in today to update you on ChickAdvisor Points. We know you love the ChickAdvisor forum and so do we! The purpose of the forum is to provide helpful advice and thoughtful input to fellow Chicks (or to ask for it!). We have made the decision to remove points from forum posts to ensure that ChickAdvisor members can continue to receive quality advice rather than seeing games posted in order to acquire points. No one will have points removed but, moving forward, no points will be awarded for any content posted in the forum.
BUT!... We have introduced a new ChickAdvisor badge... the Selfie bagde! We would love to see all of our Chicks using a unique and personalized picture for their profile. You know what that means… SELFIE TIME! We want you to personalize your profile and what better way than with a profile picture :) For those Chicks who have already personalized their profile, you will notice that you have been awarded the new badge already!!
(BTW, if you are not totally comfortable with using your own face as your profile picture, please upload something unique that represents who you are)
If anyone has any questions about the forum posts or points, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always here to help and love hearing from you!
Have an awesome day!
XO, Caitlin & the ChickAdvisor Team
UPDATE JUNE 8, 2016
Hi Everyone, as you know we recently removed points from the forums to address the many complaints we were receiving about people using the forums to play games just to get points rather than using it to share advice and support, which is not what it was intended for.
However since then based on the feedback we have been reading here in our forums we have decided to re-instate forum points BUT... we won't be allowing points games. If we find threads that are clearly designed to rack up points they will be deleted as well as any points associated with those posts.
The gift cards are reserved as a thank you for those who create the most value for our community by adding quality reviews and sharing great advice. We will be reviewing the Top Chicks each month to ensure they fit that criteria before awarding the cards.
Hope that is a good compromise for everyone and thank you for all that you do to make ChickAdvisor a great place!
