Moderator Reward System
The Moderator Reward System is designed to give a little back to all those who take the time to moderate threads throughout ZapdosZulu. 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:
◓ Moderate a Member's Thread [+1 pt]
Every mod response you give to a member's journey, you can post below with a link to the reply to claim a point. Admins and G-Mods can change their totals by themselves (still posting a record below). Your choice whether you post after each one or post in batches of a week or so.
◓ Gift from Thankful Member [+1 pt per Mod Post]
If you have been modded and you appreciate the time and effort that went into the response, you can "tip" that mod here. Tipping is encouraged but entirely at the member's discretion.
Mod Points never expire! However, tallies may be hidden for brevity of the list.
You can exchange 10 Mod Points for 1 Reward Token to use in the Universal Rewards (one-way exchange).
All current staff, including trainees, receive a 10% discount* when purchasing anything from the Universal Rewards shop. This does not apply to members who hold a moderator license.
*Minimum discount applied to any purchase is 1RT, to a minimum purchase price of 1RT.
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.
When battling an opposing Pokémon, you can choose when to apply this multiplier to earn bonus experience (leave an OOC note before XP is distributed). Once used, your meter will reset.
For Pokémon below level 25, you can gain an extra level only if the meter is at 1.5X.
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 is purchasable for 10 Mod Points!
