I really enjoy incentive systems and reward functions. Sometimes a good reward function for humans is visually enhanced by levels, virtual badges, rare emotes or color.
Tips could have some kind of small img depending on value. I know many do not like visually enhanced gaming like reward extra bling because it distracts.
Maybe there is a clean way to make the upvote sats and tips visually more dominant and pleasing without overloading.
I really like the red thing popping up from time to time in the upper corner and the favicon. It triggers me a lot. Somhow i was trained to watch out for it.
This is good. I’ve always wanted to find a decent book on game reward design but haven’t found The One yet.
biggest game reward out there is a gamer toplist. like in every good old arcade pinball ;)
