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:
- green star milestones (e.g. when you receive 10, 20, 30 greenstars)
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!
