    Is it really worth it to try to make the deadline for the taipan?

    it depends on the start point. I am trying to become more active again and thats a good goal for me overall the point of the rewards are to encourage discussions between people. unfortunatly some people spam in order to reach the rewards

    That's what I was thinking I was thinking about grinding questions and answers just to get the reward, so overall is it worth?

    If you want one then yes but if the enjoyment that you might get from one does not out weigh the displeasure you may get from "grinding out posts" then no. Personally I am thinking about working towards it and I was going to give the taipan to my dad as I already have a mamba and a death adder.

    The rewards aren't for people to intentionally reach, posting everywhere rapidly will get you a cooldown and maybe even a warning point. They're there to reward those active, not just for getting in the Tipans case '450' posts.

    exactly! I was at 200 posts when the rewards cam into being and they came as a bonus. My statements might be taken a different way I can see now that I reread them.

    Yup, like these guys said. You shouldn't be "working" for the Taipan. The rewards are meant to be an incentive to be active. You'll get them just by being a member and enjoying the community. But making lots of threads just to get some rewards isn't the point of Razer Insider. It'll make it "work", like you said, instead of fun, and might irritate some of Insider's other users. I just get on a couple times a day, respond to some threads that interest me, and enjoy the people. I haven't been trying to post a lot per say, but I'm already over 70 with just a month or so of membership just by being active, not trying to boost my post count.

    It is only really worth it if you need a mouse or just want to be really helpful and post a lot

    So making 450 posts just for the grind is not easy, sooner or later you will see if this site is something for you,
    however the taipan is a really great mouse, I got mine two weeks ago and currently it's my favourite mouse, even compared to the deathadder and naga

    Perfect because I need a nose for the hopefully upcoming, laptop I'll be getting in a while.

    It's not work..... All you have to do is interact with others as you normally would have without the rewards! GLHF, and don't spam post lol.

    ...or just dig up a month-and-a-half old thread that was clearly resolved

    Don't get too excited haha, we're all friends here :) just saying what was on my mind! and it never hurts to remind new members about how to be ethical when it comes to reward programs :D

    I can get that mouse right now, but I am just debating if I want to spend the money on shipping to get it. The sensor is of course better than my mamba.

    I do reccomend making helpfull posts on insider, and then you can just hang around up here around 800 posts, and get every promotion that pops up. Just take your time, and do like 4 or 5 posts a day and you will be there sooner than you think.

    I'd say go for it, it is really a great mouse, also if there is a way for you to get free shipping for 60$ like in my country you can get something like the hammerheads so you don't waste money on shipping

    I just got them. 14 bucks of shipping isnt bad for a free 70$ product XD

    Thanks razer

    I say that it depends on how early you started! If you only caught the deals by the 20th or later, maybe hold off on investing the time until next month!
