GUI Shop Plugin - Alt incentive for Voting
« on: 12 June 2018, 09:36:08 AM »
Hi there,

I mentioned this in passing a while back and thought i'd pull my finger out and make an official suggestion.

In short this is the plug in (or similar if you wish)
https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/guishop.2451/


The idea is every time you vote you get (in addition to any rewards you would still like to give) a token per vote. These tokens would be spent in the above virtual shop. The shop could hold enchanted tools & weapons, eggs, special blocks, etc etc

With all due respect to the great work done to this server, the current rewards do not seem any incentive (diamonds are about all that are useful and they are very few).
Don't get me wrong I would and do vote no matter the reward. I have just noticed how very quiet, support for the server in this way is, and thought this might get people going for it.

Hope you take time to consider  :D

we actually looked into this a while ago while working on vcgames and its a plugin we decided to avoid, i forget why but if people are interested its worth looking into again.

Well if there was a technical problem with it, a similar plugin like

For what it's worth, I'm open to adding new items (like enchanted books) to the vote reward list. The rewards are for you after all, as a thank you for voting. Tell us what you want, and we'll (probably) add it to the mix! :D

I like this
Would we be able to give out tokens arbitrarily or is it only for voting? EG maybe we could give out tokens for wins in VCG, and events and stuff
VC always has been like this. It has ebbs and flows, just like my menstrual periods

My thanks @luisc99 that would certainly be a bonus if this did not go through!

I believe the tokens can be given out via an automated system (voting) or by staff members for what ever reasons. Competitions, praise for builds, etc.

The bonus with the tokens is it it gives the supporter of the server, a personal choice of some thing useful instead of random things that might not be needed.

Example I am needing to mine out a large area of a mountain for a dwarven fortress, access to enchanted pickaxes with eff IV and unbreak IV or if i wanted to use this for the outside of the fortress add silk touch, would be a god send specially if all it meant was to vote for the server.

Some might say this might take away the need to personally learn enchanting, however the 'store' would only sell essential things and not rare or fun things that need to be won by personal experience to enjoy.

A side note would be, if this ever went though, not to bringing the tokens into the donation area as this puts players off under the 'pay to win' umbrella.

As i said previously, no matter what i will vote almost daily, but we all know that this is not the fact others. I do think more people (old and new) would vote if they thought they could do something with it.

Anyway, it's late and i think i'll leave it there before i push my luck  :P

Nite nite!

Hi all,

As per a recent conversation, I thought I would bump this post as we obviously need to get more players and, to me, this seems a good incentive for new or past players. Items would not need to stick as ench items, specially with 1.13, eggs for example could be offered in the shop.

I would also like to take this opportunity to ask what peoples views are on MCMMO being introduced (if possible) for professions wood cutting, mining, acrobatics, etc? It would surely give players something else to strive for?

Finally I wonder also on views for the (or similar) plugin called Slimefun? Again it add's that little bit more that players can play around with?

Thanks for your time,

Gamalin

I personally love Mccmo! But I also feel like it generally makes a server lag quite a bit, which is unfortunate. I happen to love how you can level up your skills to have a reward with the plug in.

We used to have it years ago (pretty sure I installed it myself but I don't remember) but I think it caused issues or something.
