2. Special prizes

– Commissioner of the Month goes to jengoldacker who published a load of  missions in February to do with painting various rooms in her house. We just thought we would give her US$50 as a contribution towards the cost of the paint!

– Responder of the Month goes to Tracy for her many useful responses. What can we say? Tracy is relentless in her wish to help others. We need more people like Tracy! She will receive a special prize worth $50.

3. Special grant

– The February special grant goes to belindayoung who you will all know – she has been amongst the most dedicated missioners month after month. Whether she is publishing interesting missions of her own or helping others achieve their goals, she has most certainly not received the recognition she deserves. She also closes off her missions when completed – something we wish more people would do … it’s a good way to earn more points! We hope that Belinda knows that she is appreciated by so many of our community. Our grant to Belinda is worth US$200.

What to do next …

– Responder of the Month goes to Kosko who went to considerable effort to provide some really high quality responses during the month. Kosko will receive a special prize worth $50.

3. Special grant

– The October special grant goes to Tracy who has been – and continues to be – an exceptional advocate of mymission2. Tracy has posted thoughtful missions of her own as well as genuinely helpful responses to others. She is a positive influence on all missioners as well as all of us here at Mission Control. She’s even been spreading the word and bringing new people to mymission2. Did you know that Tracy has set up a web site for survivors of abuse? Tracy is also looking for a job at the moment and it has come to our attention that Tracy’s PC has been playing up. So we’ve decided to spend $200 on getting this sorted out for her – one way or another – so that she doesn’t get held up with her job applications and that she can continue all her good work online … unhindered by a naughty PC.

What to do next …

If your mymission2 username appears above then look out for an email from us which will tell you how to claim your prize. If you haven’t yet received an email then make sure your email address is correctly entered into your mymission2 profile! Don’t worry – nobody will see it but we need it to be able to contact you.

The winner is … Tracy who came up with this:

We then put our creative genius John to work and he turned Tracy’s idea into something that we will use as the mymission2 Christmas card:

A special thanks to Tracy.

Announcing new incentives

September 12, 2008

mymission2 exists so that people can help each other achieve their dreams.

We want to reward people …

  • who publish their own great missions
  • who help others achieve their missions
  • who bring other people to the site

The incentives to date have been very effective in many ways but we think we can improve them by reducing the monthly rewards for simply earning points and introducing monthly prizes and grants for the people who we think contribute most to mymission2. So the following monthly incentives will be used from October 1st onwards.

1. Automatic rewards based on mission points earned in the month:

$50 Amazon vouchers to the highest points earner
$30 Amazon vouchers to the 2nd highest points earner
$20 Amazon vouchers to the 3rd highest points earner
$10 Amazon vouchers to the 4th highest points earner
$10 Amazon vouchers to the 5th highest points earner
$10 Amazon vouchers to the 6th highest points earner
$10 Amazon vouchers to the 7th highest points earner
$10 Amazon vouchers to the 8th highest points earner
$10 Amazon vouchers to the 9th highest points earner
$10 Amazon vouchers to the 10th highest points earner

2. Special prizes each month:

$50 to the “Commissioner Of The Month”
$50 to the “Responder Of The Month”

The “Commissioner Of The Month” will be the publisher of loads of great missions or even just one spectacular mission.

The “Responder Of The Month” will be, in our opinion, the most helpful person at mymission2 during the month.

3. Special grant each month:

$200 to the “Missioner Of The Month”

The “Missioner Of The Month” will be the missioner who quite simply is most deserving – the person we want to help the most. Our grant is to say “thanks” or to support them in their cause.

The monthly prize winners and the monthly grant recipient will be chosen by us here at Mission Control. We will decide how to award these prizes and grants – as cash, online vouchers, specific products or services, etc. We’ll be considering both quantity and quality. Our decisions are final and it is possible to win multiple prizes.

What do you think? Let us know by posting comments to this blog post.

Points mean prizes!

– 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
