As promised, the Active Member Bonus replacement is here! The Community Contribution Bonus system hopes to better recognize those that are positively contributing to the community and not just purely rewarding posting in the forums. Here is an overview:
Every Hour on the Hour
That's right. The Community Contribution Bonus goes out every hour on the hour, 24 hours a day. The catch is that there is no longer a guarantee. Everyone that qualifies for the bonus has a chance to win.
Post in the Forums or Receive Honor to Qualify
There are two ways to qualify for a chance to win the hourly bonus. The first is just posting in the forums. As long as you've posted at least once during the hour, you have a chance to win the next Community Contribution Bonus. The second way to qualify is to receive Muthead Honor within the previous hour. You do not even need to be online to win if you qualify this way.
I've worked to balance the system so that it still reward approximately the same amount of MH Credits as it did before, just with a much more consistent schedule. If I balanced things correctly, it shouldn't have any more of an impact on the MH Credit economy than the old Active Member Bonus system.
Now that the Muthead Honor surge acknowledging past contributions has died down, Honor Token spending should be a solid indicator of community contribution. Because of this, receiving Muthead Honor gives you a higher chance to win than just posting.
Just like the Active Member Bonus system, your Muthead OVR applies a multiplier to the 1 MH Credit your receive if you hit the bonus. The values are the same as before: Bronze -- 1.0x, Silver -- 1.1x, Gold -- 1.25x, Elite -- 1.5x, Legend -- 2.0x.
Muthead Supporter Status is Not a Factor
The algorithm to determine who qualifies and who wins is unaffected by whether or not you're an active Muthead Supporter. Posting and receiving Muthead Honor gets you the same chance whether you are a subscriber or not. Just a reminder, you do not need to be a Muthead Supporter to receive Muthead Honor.
Just like any other major change, I'll monitor the data closely and make any necessary changes.
