    zSilver Rewards for Content.png
    Insiders,

    Many of you have published great posts on Insider and it's time that we rewarded you for those efforts. We've added three repeatable achievements to the list to reward those who put out great content. These rewards will be given out at our own discretion so we're hoping to see some really great stuff from everyone.

    Quality content can vary from highly engaged, positive posts, posts with many likes or posts that help out the community as a whole. Get creative, get smart and get posting!

    Remember to always follow the House Rules and please no spamming or begging for likes, bumps and rewards. If anything, that's a sure fire way to not get rewarded and possibly face the wrath of the ban hammer. Quality, not quantity.

    We're excited to see what you all come up with!

    There are still achievements that are meant to be gained within the appreciation of the admins, mods and so on. And the advocates ones which are still in stand by. Imo it needs much more staff attention in order to get these kind of achievements.

    Almost all from the "Good Behaviour" section which requires staff members and mods likes and the "Advocate" ones, i hardly see them anymore. Don't get me wrong, i like that new achievements have been added, it's just that mods and staff members doesn't really show too much implication for those.

    Nice, gotta do my best next time ;)
    Also like the increased value of the reward, but as we all know, we're here not for the reward :D
    :green_heart: Keep it up RAZER

    Imo there should be more automatically claimable achievements. I still havent been rewarded for the Razer Firefly and Razer Rogue 13.3 backpack I got even though I sent pictures to the mods as well. It takes ages for a human to reply. :slightly_sad:

    Nice addition, but I hope there'll be enough recognition from the team.

    Nice but I like more the kind of achievements who doesn't require an admin to approve them.

    Actually, this also places power in the community. By engaging in conversations and posting great content, we see the activity. It would be hard not to notice. The other achievements, although, great in their own right, require way too many parameters to trigger and I personally don't like that. We shouldn't have to rally 5 mods and 10 admins to constantly pay attention in their busy schedules to tally points just to recognize and reward great content.

    It's easier and much more rewarding for us to look and acknowledge great content and show immediate gratification. So it will also be up to you, Insiders, the community to say, "Hey take a look at this post" and we can say, yeah, that's great, here you go.

    This is the tricky part, I don't disagree with this sentiment, but people get really bold with zSilver and we need a failsafe to prevent bad actors from gaming the system. This is one way to do it. But this also removes the strict requirement of constantly having to have mods, admins and staff giving likes just to earn a trivial amount of zSilver. Again, personally, that kinda sucks. So this is my way of trying to find a good middle ground to get the community engaged while also rewarding and recognizing where needed.

    Some of you may not believe it, but I'm on your side!

    As a show of good faith and an example of rewarding valuable and constructive engagement, some of you may have received a new achievement :wink_:

    I thought that maybe my product warranty registration would have brought the acheivements over. Maybe there is a way to link that?

    Hoping to get my zSilver for having a Razer system...since I got me a new Blade 15 among other things. :cool_:

    Thanks for the new rewards!

    Thanks for this news.
    But seing how many likes your first post received, will you be rewarded too Dekades ?

    That being said, i agre about the fact that some rewards are missing a quick effect (like
    Hoist the Colors), i agree that they cannot be automatic but still.
    I put the picture of my desk recently and still doesn't have been awarded.

    I know that only my Kraken is chroma (the Naga is the Molten special edition so it onbly bright red), but still it fullfil the requirement.

    But some case like 0V3R_K1LL one are ankward to me because as soon as i plugged my Naga, i've been immediatly awarded the Accuracy Up trophy.
