    Hi everyone,

    This is just a poll to see how many players would like / be against changing the voting requirements for ranks if we add more voting websites for the vote ranks (from the current optional vote sites).

    Right now I'd like to add at least 2 of the optional voting sites to the rewards. So what would happen is the vote requirements for ranks would go up, possibly up to 3x what it is now - but I'll likely change the values for each rank. Steve to recruit will still only be 1 vote. The upside is, you can get rewarded multiple times for voting.

    The current reward will be slightly decreased, but voting for all sites will reward you with more than what there is now. Plus we will be adding many new chance rewards.

    The outcome of the vote does not guarantee anything! We just want to hear what you think. This poll will close in 1 week.

  2. So we would keep our current ranks and be able to vote on all the sites without a vpn right?

    If so, I like this idea. Recently, a lot of people have been having trouble getting their votes to go thru (especially, but not exclusively, as Steves) on MCSL, which itself seems to be encountering more glitches than usual. Having another option would be helpful.

    However, I do not think the ranks should be bumped up by 3x the votes as many people won’t be inclined to vote for all 3 sites. Besides that, our ranks did get reset recently and speeding up the ranking process by a bit would be nice. As 2x the current votes for 3 sites seems too low, I think 2.5x the votes would be a good compromise without making ranking up too easy. With this system, the vote counts for the current ranks would be as follows:

    1- Recruit
    10- Member
    30- Regular
    63- Veteran
    120- Elite
    200- VIP
    300- Millionaire

    While I like the idea overall, I do have some concerns about the stability of the vote plugin. Having 3 sites and random rewards might cause some glitches, as I know the streak rewards were removed due to bugs such as multiple days of streak rewards and streaks not updating. Furthermore, there have already been glitches with one site this reset- at least 2 people have had rank issues where the incorrect voting rank is displayed.

    Yeah, it likely won't be 3x. Like I said Recruit will still be just 1 vote from any site, then will probably have a new rank after that. The others will be adjusted somewhere from 2-3x their value now. In some cases maybe less.
     
  4. Personally, no. It’s just more tedious, and the whole fun of voting to show offf your “dedication” (as some players see it) is just ruined. 1 site is what makes the voting award thing unique.

  5. I feel like it would be best to leave everything as it stands right now. No changes to voting or ranks. Perhaps if this had been implemented before the server was reopened after the reset, but not now. Maybe it's just me.
    I think that a lot of players like it the way it is.
    As well as what Kydog and SquareAngle said ; the plugin is glitchy sometimes, and voting ranks show your commitment to the server, so changing it would make it less... special? Not sure if that is the right word for it.

  6. If the amount of votes needed for a rank are lower, more players are determined to vote as they can easily come from recruit to member to regular and so on. If the gap between these vote amounts are bigger, less people are more likely to vote

  8. While I don't play anymore, I personally think that this would do more harm than good by making it more complicated than it really needs to be.

  9. I think you should maybe increase the vote websites by 2 and leave the vote rank requirements as it is and add a little more rewards from voting possibly bring back vote streak rewards.

    I do not support this idea at all. As a matter of fact, one of the main reasons I love Safe Survival opposed to other servers is because it only has one vote. Other servers have multiple votes, and for a new player experience, is extremely annoying to even get started on the server.
    Adding this change has the potential to reduce the new player income exponentially.

    Hey! It's called thinking outside of the box! Too many adolescents today are fixated on their phones and gadgets. So a bit of imagination won't hurt them.
