COMMUNITY RECOGNITION
PROGRAM

ITS BACK!!! Check out the link below for details
new community recognition program
This program has been confirmed to run each year in 7 month segments.

Jump to sections to find out more.

Please see the details below regarding our Community Recognition Program and how you can earn yourself a set of Ascension Armour.

YOU NEED 50 points a month, points DO NOT roll to the next month 

Streamers

Streamers are those streaming on Twitch under the Entropia Universe category. Rules:

  1. Streams must have an average view rate above 10 people (We validate this through third-party tools which takes average viewers per channel overall).

  2. Streams do not have to be family friendly as such, though streams that we consider to be counterproductive to positive community development will not qualify

  3. Streams that do not feature active gameplay (AFK streaming) will not qualify

  4. NI Gameplay must be the main focus of the stream, for example, playing another game or other activity with EU in a small window in stream does not qualify

  5. Streams must take place on NI/AG

  6. Streams must enable the “Save previous streams as videos for 30 days feature”. If you do not have access to this feature, please save your whole streams as video highlights on Twitch - which you can then post a link to on your submission

 

Video Creators

Video Creators are those producing videos for YouTube about Next Island.

  1. Videos must have above 10 Likes and 100 Views

  2. Video must be Linked to our YT Channel 3 in the description.

  3. Videos must take place on NI/AG

  4. Videos do not have to be family friendly as such, though videos that we consider to be counterproductive to positive community development will not qualify

  5. Videos should have a “topic” to explore, and discretion will be used when deciding if content is of quality

  6. To qualify, videos should be innovative, interesting, and entertaining, not just HoF clips.

  7. Unedited clips of streams do not qualify, NI staff will make a final determination if videos are deemed appropriate to qualify

  8. A single video may only be submitted once, but you may submit any video that has been published during the Community Recognition Program cohort. For example, you may publish a video in April, and by May it has enough likes to qualify, therefore you can submit it for May. This should give you more opportunity to gain organic views and qualify. We will also accept videos you have posted One Month both before and after the cohort too (thus, March and November)

 
Event Organizers

Event organizers are those organizing public events on NI/AG

  1. Events must be open to public entry. For example, limiting by society or specific players does not qualify (Events that form a shortlist such as “PFEU” still qualify). Events requiring certain items (such as for fashion events) are fine.

  2. A given event may only be submitted by one player. Exception: Larger events coordinated in advance

  3. Event organizers must show a significant effort in the coordination of their events and must post event details on the Next Island Forum

  4. Event Organisers must take appropriate screenshots of their event, and post them in the thread created for the event to act as evidence. These should include timestamps (by pressing the period key ingame) and showing the players in attendance.

  5. A minimum of 10 people must be in attendance excluding the organizer

 
Lore Creation

  1. Players can submit lore to be written into the forum Lore section, as long as it ties into the planet storyline(s)

  2. Minimum word count is 300

  3. Should be interesting and relevant

  4. Accepted submissions will qualify for points

  5. Stories must be of high effort/quality, interesting and relevant. We want to reward lore that ties well into the existing Next Island Story and lore, and provide some high quality reading for anyone interested. If you would like to message me about your writing before submission, you are welcome to do so, to avoid not qualifying for the above reason.


Point System
50 points are required for a reward. You can only redeem 1 reward per month. Points do not roll to the next month.

 

 

 

 


Players who redeem a reward 3 months in a row will be eligible for the Ascension Strider.
Players who redeem a reward 7 months in a row will be eligible for the Ascension Skyripper.


Process for Reward Redemption
All players who believe they may have required the correct amount of points to qualify for a reward should respond to a specially designated forum thread. We will not chase you down to find out if you qualified for a reward. You must post in the designated thread.


This post must include any relevant information such as:

  • Full Avatar Name

  • Categories you believe you have earned points in

  • Links to appropriate submissible content (ie. relevant Twitch stream, lore submission, YouTube video)

 

Disclaimer
Any players attempting to exploit the reward system by doing things such as, but not limited to, paying for views, paying for people to vote for them, or paying people to attend events will not qualify and at our discretion may be banned from participating in the Recognition Program further.
This program is on a seven month trial period, as a test to see how it goes. This enables players to at least complete a full set of the armor if we decide to discontinue the program.
In general, be a good person who is dedicated to supporting the Next Island community and contributing in a positive manner. All reward determinations will be at the full discretion of the Next Island team. Additional points may be awarded for going above and beyond with the time and effort put into larger coordinated streams, videos, events or creative writing submissions. We have seen many of you create content, and support your fellow colonists directly in game over the years. With this program we aim to show our appreciation for your continued contributions. We look forward to awarding many of you, and enjoying what you create along with our growing community!
