First off, I want to thank everyone that has participated in my little experiment. I've had fun with it and I hope you have too!
I am going to continue the program, but I'm not going to be awarding points for comments going forward. It's just becoming too much work to keep track of that aspect of it. I'm sure that comments will decrease, but that's okay.
Everyone that has earned points up to this point will keep them and I'll make sure there are plenty of ways to earn points going forward.
Points will still be earned by sending me cards that I need.
Earn 10 points for each different Paul Goldschmidt card you send me.
Earn 10 points for each different Ken Griffey Jr. card you send me.
Earn 5 points for each different Mike Piazza card you send me.
Earn 10 points for sending me a specific card off my Want Lists.
I'll also be running some contests where everyone that participates will earn points in addition to a prize going to the winners.
I also plan on randomly awarding points for commenting on certain posts. So for example, somewhere in the post I'll indicate that commenting on this particular post will allow you to earn points.
In addition, I'll look for other ways to awards points. Again, it was just keeping track of every single comment was getting to be too much. It also didn't help that this last week or so have been really hectic around our house with three doctor's visits, two trips to urgent care, my wife's grandmother being in the hospital and now a rehab facility, a major ($2000) car repair, and a stressful week at work.
So here are the updated Loyalty Points totals.
|Brian Stryker/Collecting Cutch||50|
|Reds Card Collector||5|
|The Angels In Order||5|
|Sport Card Collector||65|
|The Lost Collector||5|
|Swing And A Pop-up||5|
You can find the prizes here and I'll keep adding to the prizes as the year goes on.
