The site has now been updated again. I apologize for the issue with earning gold. The server crashed shortly after I went to bed last night, and I did not notice your messages until I woke up. Decided to do maintenance when I was on the server.
I have updated a lot of back-end stuff. One of the next updates will include the option to help translate the site.
I have worked every day during the christmas and new years eve holidays, in order to make it translateable. Hopefully you guys will enjoy it once it is completed.
I have also removed all users abusing the referral system. It took a great deal of time and I have second thoughts about doing another referral contest. It appears to involve a lot of work, but who knows what the future will bring. Definetely other contests will come
The Autominer is still disabled. I am re-working the way the price works, and it will be enabled as soon as I am finished with that piece of work. I believe it will at latest be done some time during this week.
A pure shame about my referrals
If they were as active as I am, I would have won easily (a)
Bringing the activity of members to an attention.
Would it be possible to organize a monthly reward system to encourage member to click that one time more a day?
This would not included members who use the autominer upgrade (would be stupid).
Point system would be the same as the referral contest, you get 1 point for each minute you mined (not using autominer).
And as reward the top 3 or 5 would get their points in gold calculated this way => 1 point + (1 gold x current gold per min / 100)) = gold reward per point
For example this would mean someone with 5 workers and 2 gold ores get 10 gold each minute mining.
This would mean is this person mined for 1000 minutes in a month he has 1000 points witch will convert to (if he is in the top 3or5) 1000 x (1 + (10 / 100)) = 1000 x 1.1 = 1100 gold
I would be happy like a child gives candy for life with this idea coming true
EDIT: also any way to buy upgrades for a even longer time? ^^ Now the limit is is 168 hours (7 days) for the autominer and 24 hours for the boosts with the ores, a way to make it a 'big' change, add option for a month to the autominer and for the ore boosts a week.
I noticed you used about a 20% reduction on the price so far:
1 day autominer = 0.00035
7 days autominer = 0.002 ==> 0.00029/day (I rounded up) = 18% of original price
For the 1 month autominer if would suggest = 0.00788 = 25% of original price
I'm to lazy to calculate the prices from the ores atm, all 3 ores are prices differently so :p
Anyway if you want me to take a closer look at this, let me know
AND autominer is still disabled btw :p
I will consider your suggestion for some kind of reward system.
Currently, I am working on some other things though but I will keep this suggestion in mind.
I have a nice surprise in store, but it is far from finished. I will focus on that first though, and consider this reward system afterwards.
Still cant sign in, still says needs to be activated. And checked spam mail the day I registered and it was never there nor in regular email either.
I apologize greatly but I accidentally deleted your account while cleaning up the database. However, you should be able to sign up with the same e-mail again though, and this time around receive the confirmation link.
I hope this is not too big an issue - I simply forgot to enable you prior to working the database.
