Gamifying RLHighscore: MyIncrwd

18 Mar 2012 by ZiggyD, 1 Comment »

We all love scores. We also love freebies. That’s why when I first discovered MyIncrwd I knew that it would be perfect for RLHighscore. 

MyIncrwd provides incentives for you to do what you already when you visit here. Every time you visit this site, like a page, share something or leave a comment you will earn points which can be redeemed for prizes. At first the offerings are pretty basic, just a few giftcards. However, if MyIncrwd ends up working well and if you, the readers, like it I will add even more prizes myself (free games anyone?).

Read on to find out how it works.

1) Click on the green rewards tab at the right hand side of the page.

This is the menu that displays your daily score checklist, total score and possible rewards. You may notice that you already have some points just from visiting!

Tip: sign in with your Facebook or create an account so that your score is remembered if you clear your browsers cache. Otherwise you will lose your score!

2) Choose from one of the rewards.

To begin with the available rewards will be limited to a few giftcards but in the future we will add more options if the program is popular.

3) Interact with us!

Earn points by:

  • Visiting often.
  • Sharing your favourite articles on Twitter and Facebook.
  • +1’ing us on Google+.
  • Leaving thoughtful comments.
  • Having your friends visit and re-share articles that you share!

4) Claim your reward.

After you win your reward, we will reach out to you shortly with instructions on how to redeem your reward! If you dont recieve an email within a few days contact us and let us know.


Not everyone will be able to participate in the program immediately. In order to get an accurate reading of the effectiveness of our engagement program, 10% of our users will be randomly selected to be omitted from our rewards program so that we can do live A/B testing. If you do not see the rewards tab and you wish to be included in our program, please contact Incrwd below to find out to how to get in.


I think adding this program has the potential to make RLHighscore more awesome and rewarding for readers. But don’t take my word for it, try it out for yourself! Love it? I’ll add more rewards and keep improving the integration. Hate it? I’ll get rid of it. Simple as that! Just let me know what you think either in the comments below (your first chance to test it out).
