Back to permission levels: “Everyone” role trial is over

For a little while iSnick’s Discord channels were available to those not Newb, Pleb and so on. “Everyone” (mostly directed towards those without any applied role and newcomers) was able to view most of all channels, including our precious #development and #meme. Bot functionality beyond games and banking was usually still denied as the Disc Jokey gem is required and so is Citizen. Permissions were set this way to display Citizen’s roaming ability within the economy.

The economy has reverted back to its strict permission levels, meaning newcomers and or those without applied roles will see less (until roles are acquired).

Money Bonus Challenge and Temporary bailouts

Discord image for the money bonus challenge reads (with emojis):

🔴 🔴 🔴 ➡️ ➡️ ➡️ ❗ MONEY BONUS CHALLENGE❗ ⬅️⬅️ ⬅️ 🔴 🔴 🔴 Limited time!

Tips

Some prefer running wild within the economy and this is fine! Have at it! But if you want to participate in community events, one usually must have purchased raffle tickets to qualify.

  • Always have at least $15,000 to $20,000 in the bank,
  • Commit crimes as little as possible (fines are high!),
  • Work as frequently as possible (a schedule is usually announced),
  • Use text chat as much as possible (you’re given money for text within channels),
  • Play !Blackjack.

 

In closing… thank you! Thank you for participating – the community has been nothing but top quality.

Economy Schedule, July 22-24: Hours, wages, animals

For the last few months, unannounced, work wages have been fluctuating between ~$100 to over $400. There was a small dip in economic activity, so wages were slightly loosened. The work time restriction was also lifted to around an hour, again all unannounced.

Work is going back to every four hours with:

  • Work
    • Min: 100
    • Max: 500
  • Blackjack
    • Max: 500
  • New section: !animal race
    • !animal shop, !animals, and !provisions

The prices of animals will likely fluctuate.

Crime, et al. have not been altered.

Economy: How debts and bailouts are working… right now

You may have noticed or have been selected to have your debt cleared. This is because iSnick sees continued participation of individuals – additionally, iSnick does not want individuals to be too restricted due to prior economy experiments. SooOooO, some debts are being cleared.

Keep in mind this is not a reset. No higher amount than $0 is set for your bank account. No matter how much money you had prior you will have to regain all.

Giveaways, prizes, et al

Those unaware of “PTO” should read this!

Paid-time off serves as a raffle ticket to iSnick raffles. Cost of ticket may be seen via !ship in #bot-stuff and you may also ask players for money. PTO also gives you an unknown amount of money, usually on a weekly basis.

Please, please, please, p-p-p-p-pleeeease do not attempt to join a giveaway without acquiring the PTO role. Citizen and PTO roles are both required to enter raffles.

Aaannnd keep inviting people!

Thank you for your time. I hope you have a good day!

Why is this happening?

  • iSnick Economy believes in YOU
  • Everyone could use a little “free”
  • If free is free, then free is freely free for me.
  • Raising awareness

Access for ALL (temporarily)

As of right now, “everyone” has access to (most of) everything! Join voice channels, access higher priv channels (meme, gifwars, etc). This is to let you see the fun and organization. Can’t forget organization.

Of course there’s a catch–you can’t do some things, or read some history maybe, but maybe this’ll entice you to obtain higher roles within the community. Strive to be a Citizen!

Thank you for participating!

psst., those who obtain Citizen role during this time will receive Faucet access for cryptocurrency when it arrives. Rumor also has it giveaways may be in the future.

For those unfamiliar with this boost, members were able to !work every hour as opposed to four. This ramped up competition, pushing the leaderboard all kinds of crazy. The crime/slut failure rates were also reduced, following Blackjack ante increase.

As of today, the economy wages are back down, work is every four hours, crime/slut rate is around 40%.

If you can, please try to Copy Message Link so it’s easily referenced (right-click the message).

Accepting submissions until I can’t stomach sorting them

    Schedule Monday 17th: Economy Boost with Shaky Grounds

    I hope you enjoyed small wage increases, because we’re entering shaky grounds–where an economic boost will be taking place, but you’ll have to be careful of all surroundings. The crime rate will be adjusted, random taxation and limitations will be imposed, so keep your cash in the bank.

    Remember to add/remove from bank:

    • !deposit x or !dep all
    • !withdraw x or !with all

    Optionally, you may also give your money away with !givemoney username-here.
