Moderator Reward System
The Moderator Reward System is designed to provide incentives so that Moderators can continue to create interactive, personalised stories for people as they journey across Johto and experience everything the place has to offer. This activity can be done by anyone with a Moderator License and entirely at your leisure. In return and as a way of thanks, the ZapdosZulu roleplaying community offers a wide range of rewards including; Mod Points, Bonus XP and Mystery Gifts!
There are two ways to earn points, which can be traded for prizes:
◓ Write a full length mod reply* [+1 pt]
Each time you respond to someone else's journey you can post below with a link to the reply in order to claim a point. Admins and G-Mods can change their totals by themselves (make sure you mention that you've done this). If you’ve modded several people during the day/across the week you can post them all at the same time.
◓ Receive from thankful member [+1 pt]
If you have been modded by someone and you appreciate the time and effort that's gone into a high quality response, you can "tip" them by posting below. Tipping is encouraged but entirely at the member's discretion.
It could be along the lines of:
“Thanks to Andrew for an excellent post. ^^ +1 point”
*Note: generally, if you write more than 100 words, it is considered a full length reply for the purposes of claiming Mod Points but please use judgment as to how much thought and effort went into the reply.
Mod Points never expire, even if you have been inactive for a long period of time! However, tallies may be hidden in a spoiler for brevity of the list. The Moderator Reward System is integrated with the Universal Rewards such that you can exchange 10 Mod Points for 1 Reward Token (but not vice versa).
You may notice that once you have obtained a Moderator License (or become a Trainee) a meter will appear on your profile.
This is the experience multiplier!
Each time you claim a Mod Point the multiplier will increase by 10%. It tops out at 1.5X, which means that to obtain the full benefit you will need to moderate 5 threads. For example:
1 reply = 1.1X
3 replies = 1.3X
5 replies = 1.5X, OR +1 LV for Pokémon below level 25
When battling an opposing Pokémon, you can choose when to apply this multiplier to earn bonus experience (just leave an OOC note). Once used, your meter will reset and you will need to refill it again. For Pokémon below level 25, you can gain an extra level only if the meter is at 1.5X. The maximum benefit you receive is equivalent to the Lucky Egg but your item slot will be free!
On occasion, the situation may require a short response, such as playing the role of the dealer in the Game Corner. These quick modding replies do not entitle you to a Mod Point but can instead be exchanged for a Mystery Gift!
If you've been writing full length responses, you needn't miss out either because a Mystery Gift Box is purchasable for 10 Mod Points!
