Understanding the Difference between Mints and Points
Mints are like online virtual coins and can be used to buy signature tags, enter contests, and purchase online goods. You earn mints by actively engaging in groups and forums. Mints can also be earned by participating in special events, watching specific video tutorials, and more. Mints are accumulative even if you spend them. This means, your rank continues to grow regardless of how much mint coins you spend. If it is required to have 10,000 mint to become a social butterfly member and you spend 5,000 in mint you will not lose your rank. Your rank will continue to accumulate your overall number of mints earned as a member over the years.
Points are earned by participating in the group forums and other activities they are assigned to. Points are refreshed monthly and recorded for the overall annual member leaders of the year. Members earn mints by placing 1st through 3rd place as a top member of the month posting in groups they have joined. The more you reply, post, and interact the more mints and points you will receive.
The Monthly and Annual Top Member Leadership
Each month the points are reset to zero. Members have the opportunity to compete and participate to display their community leadership engagement. In December we add the overall points per member for the overall member of the year for the highest engagement and activity. The best part about this setup is that it allows newer members to engage since the points reset on a monthly basis. Points are also reset on a yearly basis. Points do not affect or associated with Mints (virtual coins). However, you will earn mints if you make the top three members of the month and year.
2019 Top Members
Since Chaos is new and Tiki did not have the same setup we are doing the overall member by the number of mints earned. This is the only time we will use mint to award the overall year top member leaders. As of 2020, the points will be fetched through the point system.
