Today we would like to inform you about some important changes to this website for our community and also give a small peak at what is coming. The change to our newly points and achievement system effects all our members, so make sure to read it!


Points

Longer we have been working on a point rewarding system. We have been experimenting with it the past few weeks and decided on a final setup for point awarding. The following actions are currently available:
  • Create an account - 2 points
  • Login with an account - 3 points
  • Obtain a friend - 1 point
  • Like a photo - 1 point
  • Like an album - 1 point
  • Like a video - 1 point
  • Like a profile - 1 point
  • Download a file - 2 points for the uploader
  • Upload a regular file - 2 points
  • Upload a scenario - 15 points
  • Create an album - 1 point
  • Upload a photo - 1 point
  • Link a video - 2 points
  • Post a comment - 2 points
  • Join a group - 1 point
  • Create a community group - 10 points
  • Post a new topic the forums - 5 points
  • Reply to a topic in the forums - 2 points
  • Thank a member a forum message - 1 point for the author
The awarded points have been recalculated according to this setup.

In the near future we will keep adding possibilities to award members of our community for their efforts!

Note: The editor that can be earned for Project Penelope 1.2 requires fifthy point. Besides the editor we don't have any intentions to disclude members from community content based on the points system. The points and achievements system is primarily intented to boost community activity. This, as we believe, an active community might persuade Microsoft to bring back Age of Empires Online.


Achievements

Along with the points system we also introduce the awarding of achievements. They translate points into awards. These achievements are based on the setup we know from our beloved game!

As for now all achievements can be earned, except for the onces related to streaming.

According to site activity so far, achievements have been awarded along with the points recalculation. Only the achievement 'Relief Valve' couldn't be added automatically, because we do not track who is downloading what based on your general user id within our community. But it's an easy to achieve award ;)

We welcome community suggestions for new achievements.

Note: Mis use of the points and / or achievements system, by for example spamming, will lead to a one week ban without warning. The third time mis use is considered a permanent IP and user ban will follow. No correspondence with administrators or moderators is possible about this policy. Let's keep it fun in here


Welcome message for new members

New members recieve an automatic welcome message with general information about our website now. They recieve this in their messagebox on AOEO4EVER.net.

Hey, can you add the official time somewhere on the website? We all live in different time zones and it would be nice to have a time to refer to for contests and such.

Don't focus on just getting the editor. Have fun playing, comment on played quests and share a few screenshots or movie from it and in a few days you'll notice you have reached fifthy.

Don't forget there are several roads that might lead into the return of Age of Empires Online. One of them, we believe, is to be able to see for MS there still is an active community that cares!

I see you also don't have friends... You can also send me one ;)
