I've made adjustments to the amount of CP and Viz you earn from making posts, threads, articles, reviews and walkthroughs.

For the guides, articles and reviews, in most cases you're going to earn less CP than before if it's small but if it's large, you're going to earn way more than before. In all cases though you're going to earn way more Viz.

Posts now pay out way more Viz and CP than before which is far more fair since some users invest a lot of time into their posts. Threads now pay out the same amount as a post except with a different base charge.

The base charge is basically a fee you're paying to make the post, thread, guide, article or walkthrough and it's applied after your earnings have been tallied up. This is added to discourage small posts since it'd mean you'd lose Viz for using less words than you should.

I've been making a lot of adjustments to the CP and Viz payout of different actions on the site over the past few months. Basically I want to make it so that the average hour worth of work earns you 10 CP and 1000 Viz (not factoring in multipliers). I know that Guides take the longest amount of time to write since they require a user to play through a game (or parts of a game) multiple times so they payout the most. Reviews and Articles payout the 2nd most since articles require research and reviews require you to play through an entire game (or at least a big portion of it). So to conclude, the CP and Viz earned from Guides, Articles and Reviews are not just based on the time it takes to type them up but also based on the time invested into coming up with the content.

Also, you now receive a Notification when you make a Thread, Article, Guide or Review letting you know how much Viz and CP you earned from it. These actions are also now logged individually on the staff actions page so it'll now be easier for staff to track down potential cheaters.


Here are what the new payouts look like:


Posts
Every 10 Words = 0.1 CP and 10 Viz
100 Words = 1 CP (previously 0.1) and 100 Viz (previously 10)
500 Words = 5 CP (previously 0.1) and 500 Viz (previously 80)
1000 Words = 10 CP (previously 0.1) and 1,000 Viz (previously 320)
Base Charge: 10 Viz

Threads
Every 10 Words = 0.1 CP and 10 Viz
100 Words = 1 CP and 100 Viz
500 Words = 5 CP and 500 Viz
1000 Words = 10 CP and 1,000 Viz
Base Charge: 50 Viz

Articles
Every 10 Words = 0.5 CP and 50 Viz
100 Words = 5 CP (previously 10) and 500 Viz (previously 80)
250 Words = 12.5 CP (previously 25) and 1250 Viz (previously 160)
750 Words = 37.5 CP (previously 25) and 3750 Viz (previously 320)
1000 Words = 50 CP (previously 75) and 5000 Viz (previously 640)
Base Charge: 100 Viz

Reviews
Every 10 Words = 0.5 CP and 50 Viz
250 words = 12.5 CP (previously 25) and 1250 Viz (previously 200)
750 Words = 37.5 CP (previously 50) and 3750 Viz (previously 400)
1000 Words = 50 CP (previously 75) and 5000 Viz (previously 800)
1500 Words = 75 CP (previously 75) and 7500 Viz (previously 800)
2000 Words = 100 CP (previously 100) and 10,000 Viz (previously 1600)
Base Charge: 250 Viz

Guides
Every 10 Words = 0.8 CP and 80 Viz
500 Words = 40 CP (previously none) and 4000 Viz (previously 400)
1000 Words = 80 CP (previously 75) and 8000 Viz (previously 800)
1500 Words = 120 CP (previously 75) and 12,000 Viz (previously 800)
2000 Words = 160 CP (previously 100) and 16,000 Viz (previously 1600)
5000 Words = 400 CP (previously 100) and 40,000 Viz (previously 3200)
10,000 Words = 800 CP (previously 100) and 80,000 Viz (previously 3200)
Base Charge: 500 Viz


Staff : The amount of CP and Viz you guys earn from making threads and posts in the staff forums is doubled what a regular thread and post rewards you. See below:


Staff Forum Post
Every 10 Words = 0.2 CP and 20 Viz
100 Words = 2 CP (previously 0.2) and 200 Viz (previously 10)
500 Words = 10 CP (previously 0.2) and 1,000 Viz (previously 80)
1000 Words = 20 CP (previously 0.2) and 2,000 Viz (previously 320)
Base Charge: 20 Viz

Staff Forum Thread
Every 10 Words = 0.2 CP and 20 Viz
100 Words = 2 CP (previously 0.5) and 200 Viz
500 Words = 10 CP (previously 0.5) and 1,000 Viz
1000 Words = 20 CP (previously 0.5) and 2,000 Viz
Base Charge: 100 Viz

You guys earn a lot more CP and Viz for getting involved with the staff forums now and I think this is very very beneficial.

Nice updates!
Do you think you'll ever increase the amount of cp/Viz made by getting one of your hacks played or rated? Or if someone adds a screenshot or review to your game you'll also get some cp?
Hacks contribute a lot to the rgr and you dont really get any for making them.

earthwarrior : The CP payout for having your game played I think will stay the same but I may increase the Viz payout. As for the screenshot, thread and review submission, I'll think about it. I could also consider making it so that you get Viz and CP for when users make comments to the game, though a small amount.

Yes! I have been waiting for this moment ever since the other thread about this had been made. This is already one of my favorite features of the site and I love it so much. 20k cp, here I come.


Let the inflation begin.

Davideo7 : By the way, I had a random question I asked a couple times to others that could never be answered. Can the article mods make articles, or do we have to post somewhere else and then get approval from Alex?

I really like how CP is now on a graduated scale.

It allows me to focus more on quality. I don't have to worry about having 1490 words as opposed to 1500 in a review and / or article. I see that as more time that can be spent on quality versus word count.

All in all, I love the changes!

Davideo7 : Ok I'm confused It states that 2000 words = 100 CP but yet...when I submit a review I earn around 150~175 CP for it? Does that mean I'll only earn 100 from my review or will I earn like 200? I'd prefer the later (with college courses and all hence why I haven't posted a review this month; but, last month I made enough for this month as well). As it would help out A LOT but I don't know what's going on so....hopefully I can get a response.

Thank you for your time

sonicthehedgehog57 : You have over 10,000 CP, meaning that you have the 1.75 mutiplier. So for a 100 CP action, you get 175 CP.

This keeps it at 100 CP for 2000 words, which means that you'll still get 175 CP for a 2000 word post. Since you go well beyond that (usually), you're still getting 0.5 CP per 10 words, meaning you'll be getting a LOT more CP than before.

sonicthehedgehog57 : You have a cp multiplier. https://www.vizzed.com/boards/contributionpoints.php?id=81427
Every time you do an action you get 1.75* the cp and Viz.

sonicthehedgehog57 : 100 CP doesn't include your multiplier. That's probably why you are getting 150-175 CP.

David. Yes. Just yes. I've been waiting for this for months lol, and I'm going to make serious use of it next month.

Testing the new payouts



Now seriously, after all the discussion that these adjustments created when you speculated it could be done, I started wondering if we would see them applied before 2015. So nice to see them already working. It was really unfair to get the same payout for a 2k word guide than a 4k one.



1k CP in a single guide, a new entry in my things-to-do list. Here we go!

EideticMemory : That is only true for the Viz payout in regards to reviews. The Viz payout will be much higher, but the CP will either be the the same or lower.

zanderlex :

"Reviews
Every 10 Words = 0.5 CP and 50 Viz"

"2000 Words = 100 CP (previously 100)"

For someone who goes well beyond 2000 words, they'll definitely be seeing more CP.

Before, the cap was at 100 CP per review (and your multiplier). Now there's no cap for CP.

There isnt a cap anymore for these actions?

In that case I might make a walkthrough and a video guide for the Mega competition.
Edit: How do you get CP from making articles? A staff members needs to move your thread from one forum to the articles forum you cant make it directly from the forum.

EideticMemory : But most people rarely go beyond 2000, sure there would be more of a reason to go well beyond 2000 words now, bit as you mentioned before, most of those reviews could lack in quality. Before there was people fighting for 100 words to get to 2000, now, there might be one or two people fighting for 500 or so words, but only a few would so that.

zanderlex : I think you missed the context of my post.

I was talking to sonicthehedgehog, who generally makes 3000-4000 word reviews.

I was explaining to him how the change was good for him, since he was worried.

I'm loving this new system cuz basically all I do is post and take screen shots (with a game comment here and there) so posting will earn me more vizz so I can buy some new stuff.  When I first started here posting earned more vizz than it did up till now and I am glad to see posts earning more vizz.  Thanks for the changes David.

zanderlex : The first time you summoned me to this thread, you replied to my post in which I was summoning hedgehog.

But it's fine. I accept a draw. =P

earthwarrior : Short answer is that you can't, unfortunately.

You can have articles moved there, but you won't get the CP for it. It's currently Site Staff+, I believe.

EideticMemory : Well, according to the thread in the article forum, any elite plus can make a thread in that forum. However, I am also under the assumption that thing1 made his threads right there. In additin, it has been said elsewhere that in order to get a article in that forum, you have to have it moved, and that's for all non article writers, so its a bit confusing. I'm not even sure if I am allowed to write articles, which I am in such a hurry for Alex to respond.

Woaw, after reading this thread, I tried making a review and I got 8K Viz for that!
Nice!
Amazing update!
I also noticed that if you make a short post, you lose more Viz Lost 8 Viz for making a 5 word post, my shortest post ever. lool
Edit:
I will get way to much Viz with that LOL
I got 66 Viz for this post only

Edit 2:
I actually got 6435 viz, my bad I quickly did 82.5 * 50 * 1.5, which is 6435
So yeah, this post refers that my review was 825 words long
