    Greetings Maplers,

    We have some exciting news for our lovely voters that have supported the server on the top list for months, to years.

    First of all, thank you so much! Thanks to all the loyal, and daily voters on helping us stay at the high top of the voting lists. Consider this topic a personal appreciation from me and the staff :)

    Now into the changes.

    - New voting reset time

    Asked for many months, and now finally delivering! Active now is a new reset time for votes. Yes, no more 24 hours at last. However, as stated before, we still need deal with GTOP's time when they reset their voting, which is currently 6 AM server time.

    This means that, voting can be done everyday on 6 AM server time instead of every 24 hours. We would love to do everyday UTC, but unfortunately as of right now GTOP is not willing to use a more global timezone yet.

    We hope you'll like this new change either-way!

    - Introducing bonus rewards for loyal voters (BETA)

    Furthermore, we would like to introduce something new for our voting system. Since 2015 we've been giving people 5.000 Vote Cash for voting, and sometimes a bit more during special periods.

    Wouldn't it be great if you were to get a bit more based on how long you've been supporting us? To show that extra appreciation, we'll introduce a new vote streak system.

    This system allows you to get an additional bonus the longer you've been voting for us in a row (not retroactive).

    Example, let's say you get 5.000 Vote Cash on your first vote. The next day, you vote for us another time. Now, you get 5.020 Vote Cash, then 5.040 vote cash, and so on.

    However, if you fail to vote, it resets back to 5.000, and thus the streak breaks. Of course eventually the streak caps, so people do not end up getting like 100k Vote Cash everyday. Currently, we think about capping at 6.000 Vote Cash during the trial period, while giving a 20 bonus each streak everyday.

    NOTE: Because this is a BETA, there's a good chance the rates will be experimented with.

    Furthermore, we are still thinking of other ideas, such as a voting rankings. We are also working on additional changes, such as showing your streaks on the 'my account' part of the site and more.

    Don't worry though! We are still working on many, many other things as well, at the same time.

    We hope you'll like the changes, and we are looking forward to your feedback. :)

    Special thanks to DraudsDrauds making this possible :heartbeat:

    Sounds really good! Both, the streak system and a flat hour for vote reset. I believe 0.02k nx is a little bit too less but as a start to experiment with, is fine. Really appreciate all the effort that has been put throughout this years by the staff and, your effort and dedication, is what has made this server so amazing.

    Does it work based off of the voter's IP or off of the account used? I tend to trade off my votes depending on where the cash is needed, will it break my streak to log out of one account for another?

    And does this mean we can vote at say, 8am st on one day, then at 7am st on the next day? Is there a limit to this? Would a person be able to vote at 5:50am st then vote again 11 minutes later at 6:01am st after it resets? Not that that would be beneficial unless you wanna risk it all to vote every 2 days. MapleF3

    I'm gonna max my streak just so I don't have to get triggered by having 20 vote cash extra btw

    Thanks for the new addiction. D R O D S

    It is account-based. We are also looking in the decent future in possibly getting rid of all the vote2win we currently offer in the hope we can also get rid of the confusing 'vote abuse' rule as well, to further benefit what GTOP already allows. However, I can't give too much info on that yet, since the development is pretty early. For now though, unfortunately you can only keep a streak for one account at a time.

    If you vote on 5:40 AM server time it means you can vote another time 20 minutes later.

    I grew with this, because people have a lot of account lvl 50 only to vote and do gacha.

    So if we get rid of all the vote2win aspects, there will be no need for a vote abuse rule? Does that mean we'd be able to vote multiple times without a ban? Am I reading that right?

    What exactly encompasses vote2win by the way? Is it just gachapon and marriage or does that include AP resets as well?

    ...Would that mean I can dress up all my characters and give them all active pets? OnionF4

    In my eyes right now the only problem left are the Gachapon tickets in the shop, since items obtained from it are trade-able. And yes, without that said rule you would be able to vote on as many characters you want, since GTOP do allow that already for a very long time.

    This change is bae!

    btw will there be a voting system where the streak can be transfered between accounts? (still belong to 1 person)

    For example:
    day 1 and 2 I vote on account A and get 5k and 5.02k nx
    day 3 I vote on account B and get 5.04k nx

    I wouldn't say infinite since you still need an unique IP every-time (proxy voting is not allowed and hard fought by GTOP). Instead, it is fair game for everyone, instead of few bad users potentially getting away vote abusing.

    But yeah, early development. Nothing is confirmed yet.
