Invite Friends to Join PS3Blog.net + Earn Points & Hidden Trophies!


This is a feature I’ve wanted ever since I’ve turned on the points feature for you guys. You can now invite your friends and get 100 points when they join PS3Blog.net! To access the form to invite your friends, go to where it shows your points at the top of the screen and it’s a drop down link under that’s called “Invite Friends for Points“. You can invite more than 1 friend at a time, too.

You don’t get points just for sending out invites. Points are awarded when your friend registers for PS3Blog.net. Best way to find out if you got points for your invite is to keep a eye on the top right of the screen when you open pages around the site. The point notify function will notify you within seconds after opening a new page or refreshing a page if you have earned points. It will say you just earned 100 points. Then, go to your point logs to see which friend just signed up and got you points!

Another new feature is Hidden Trophies. You can see what you have earned at the bottom of your trophy page. So far there are hidden trophies for inviting friends and game nights. But I will be adding more as I think of them. Let me know if you have any ideas for hidden trophies, I’ll award you 50 points for each idea I put into use.

It’s been requested by a few of you that you don’t want hosting game nights to count towards the PS3Blog.net Platinum Trophy. So I’ve moved it to the hidden trophy section instead. So now it’s a even 50 trophies including the PS3Blog.net Platinum Trophy.

I wanted to mention that in order to comment on PS3Blog.net you must now be a member. This will help the community here be stronger and content will only come from members. Plus, you might as well earn points for your activity here, which can be used for future giveaways/contents or even just betting your points against other members.

    @Jay: Even if for a day to get that trophy hahaha. Can we boost?

    We could have a hidden trophy for Jay’s beard mentions… that’d be swell ;p

    Another cool thing would be to add a trophy (and perhaps points) for sharing posts on social medias, that would make it so the blog would be more seen out there more!

    Hey Tosh, are you considering opening comments back up to the public after PSN comes back online? I appreciate the trollicide at the moment, but I wonder if down the road the move might foster an echo chamber effect.

    No, this will be more a permanent thing

    @premiersoupir what do you mean by “echo chamber effect” ?

    the same effect that Republicans fall victim of

    but no, we won’t fall victim to that. We’re only going to remove the trouble makers, ie: those who start personal attacks and/or flame other members for no reason. Other than that, we still have a widely varied community. Forcing membership won’t affect that at all. Anyone can still comment, they just have to be registered to do it now.

    Thank you for the clarification.

    I agree that could happen to some extent, but I do feel the more active members of the blog have way too different tastes and opinions to fall victim of that. As Jay said, the community is very varied.
