START A PETITION 27,000,000 members: the world's largest community for good
Nov 14, 2012

We've just launched a new set of features in Butterfly Rewards. We wanted to explain the changes to you, and get your feedback. We hope you are as excited by them as we are!

Probably the biggest impact is performance enhancements we've made by removing our internally built Butterfly Rewards system from our database. When we began the removal of the internally built system, we saw a dramatic decrease in latency in our monitoring tools. We hope you've seen the same effects.

A more visible feature is notifications. When certain milestones are achieved, you will see a small message in the bottom of the screen notifying you of credits you've earned, including:
- login
- green star milestones (e.g. when you receive 10, 20, 30 greenstars)

BR Rewards

We hope you will be excited about getting more immediate feedback when good things happen on the site. You won't receive a notification every time you earn credits; you will only receive notifications for special actions. Your rewards dashboard will continue to be the place to go to see credits earned.

We've also added some new opportunities for earning credits:
- social sharing: you will get credits for sharing content, and when people click on their shared content
- profile comments: when a friend comments on your profile, you get credits
- daily visits: if you visit multiple days in a row, you will now get bonus credits!

Please let us know what you think about the new features; we hope you like them!

Thank you for your continued support!

I like your new 'Thank you'- buttons, but it's unfair when you present one to those who signed just five petitions and those who signed a hundred petitions get none!

The "Thank you" cards are a great idea, as are the bonus credits - keep up the good work !!
One thing that bothers me about the credits, however, is that there are SO MANY members who don't know enough about them !! I've often "found" members who have immense stockpiles of them (some have not redeemed any at all, despite having been members for much longer than myself). I sometimes ask people "why?" and am astonished to be told "because I don't know how they work" OR "I don't even know what they're for" OR (if I've pointed out their shelf-life) "I didn't know about that" !!!! I know all the information is there - but many people just aren't finding it. Would it be possible to dedicate an article to them, for instance ? Thanks for all you do - appreciate it's not an easy job !!

Is there a problem with the new BR system ? I come to Care2 every day (without fail) and I regularly got the bonus points for consecutive days - UNTIL a while back, when the bonus points just dropped from the customary 100 (max) back to single figures. This has just happened AGAIN, after 89 consecutive days - back to the beginning - Why ??
