Points mean prizes!

June 16, 2008

We’ve always wanted to reward our most helpful and active missioners. One day we hope to enable all missioners to redeem their points in some way. But, for now, we are rewarding the top 10 points earners each month. This is what we are giving away for June 2008 …

– 1st place gets $200 worth of Amazon vouchers
– 2nd place gets $100 worth of Amazon vouchers
– 3rd prize gets $50 worth of Amazon vouchers
– 4th place gets $30 worth of Amazon vouchers
– 5th place gets $20 worth of Amazon vouchers
– 6th place gets $10 worth of Amazon vouchers
– 7th place gets $10 worth of Amazon vouchers
– 8th place gets $10 worth of Amazon vouchers
– 9th place gets $10 worth of Amazon vouchers
– 10th place gets $10 worth of Amazon vouchers

Prizes can be provided in US$ or the equivalent value in UK£ or Euro€.

The best way to earn points – and therefore prizes – is to provide really helpful responses to people so that they award loads of points to you when they close their mission!


Mission controllers are go!

June 13, 2008

We’re delighted to welcome Will and Heidi to mission control.

We had 71 responses to our ad on Gumtree for 2 mission controllers and 12 of these went on to take part in the audition that we ran. A sincere thanks to everybody who applied.

We chose Will and Heidi to be our first mission controllers so look out for them at mymission2. They’re here to help our missioners achieve their goals and will do (almost) whatever it takes to this end! But watch out … they also moderate the site’s content!

Mission controller WillMission controller Heidi

Will is 20 and really sporty. He is studying modern languages at Edinburgh University. He speaks English, French, German and Italian.

Heidi is 25 and really creative. She has just finished a degree in criticism, curation and communication for art and design at Central St Martins, London.

We had a good laugh here at mission control that Heidi has a degree in being critical. Yikes, what have we let ourselves in for 😉


Announcing a new investment

We’re pleased to announce that we have secured £150,000 seed capital from an angel investor. We’re not able to disclose details of the deal but we’re very pleased to have raised the funding we need to improve our revenue streams and add some new high priority functionality.

TechCrunch got the exclusive on the announcement – see Mike Butcher’s posting here.

We’ve moved

June 5, 2008

Finally, a pad of our own.  We’re on the north side of Putney Bridge in the deluxe suites at Riverbank House.  If you’re in the area, drop in (just ask our fabulous receptionists to give us a bell), and you can have a cup of our sludge-like coffee.

Here’s the view:

Honestly, there’s a river down there somewhere!
