How to Earn Points
You must be a registered member of the website to earn points. (If you try to register and have trouble, please email me at chatoyant.college at gmail.com--I'll get you set up.)
Once you're registered, it's easy to earn points. Every post you make, whether a comment on a story chapter, a comment on a blog post, or a post in the forum, earns you one point. Every dollar you donate, whether it's for a PDF copy of a book, for an extra update, or just to support the serial, earns you one point. Every time you use Twitter to tweet or retweet about Chatoyant College and use a hashtag I haven't used, you earn a point. If you have your own website and post a link to Chatoyant College from it, you earn five points.
Categories of Points
You may notice that there are two kinds of points: Fairy Gold and Dead Leaves. Fairy Gold is what a point is when you earn that. You can spend these points at any time for points rewards. Dead Leaves are what points turn into once you spend them. Dead Leaves cannot be spent. They're just there so you can see how many points you have accumulated over your time as a member of the site. Also, because the names are awesome.
The points listed on the sidebar is your total points. In order to see how much Fairy Gold you have to spend, you'll need to go into "my points," under your username.
How to Spend Points
You can request any reward as long as you have enough points. I will create art and write bonus stories in roughly the order in which they are requested; cameos will go wherever I can fit them; all other rewards should come immediately, or at least quickly. The points will turn from Fairy Gold to Dead Leaves when the reward is received (in the case of bonus stories, when they are written and posted).
This is the list of available points rewards and how much they cost:
Three promotional bookmarks - 20 points (and you have to give me your mailing address)
Art - 50 points
Character description - 75 points (includes stuff like eye color, hair color, family information)
Extra chapter update - 100 points
PDF book - 100 points
Bonus story - 150 points
Cameo - 500 points
