Archive - Introducing MapYourVote Rewards!

Saturday Sep 01, 2012

MapYourVote Rewards MapYourVote Rewards is a brand new feature that allows users to win prizes and rewards. Here’s how it works. As you do things throughout MapYourVote, you will begin to earn and collect Reward Points. The more points you earn the more likely you will win a Reward Prize, because each point counts as an entry to a raffle. MapYourVote will hold raffles more and more as we grow. Prizes can be anything, but will often be gift cards to online stores like Amazon.com.

So how do you collect reward points? Well that’s a good question and it’s quite easy. Reward points are collected as you perform various actions throughout MapYourVote. Here is a list of the ways you can earn reward points.


By Voting – Earn a Reward point for every 5 votes you cast.

By Commenting – Earn a Reward point for every 3 comments you make.

By Asking – Earn a Reward point for every 2 questions youask.

By Having High Vote Power – Earn a Reward point for voting at elast once and having 100% Vote Power

By Being Socially Connected – Earn Reward points for being connected to Facebook and publishing your activity.

By Referring People – Earn a point for every Referral youmake. You can make referrals by sending your referral links to people and having them sign up.



So do these points last forever? Not quite. Points will expire after 30 days or if you win a prize so you should always strive to continue earning points to increase your chances of being chosen in the raffle and winning the reward contest.

MapYourVote Rewards page also shows where you stand next to other users. You can view the LeaderBoard to see all the top scoring users in the community.

1000s of people are already having fun with MapYourVote, but the gamification of the site through MapYourVote Rewards makes it even more enjoyable!

Saturday Sep 01, 2012
We’ve just implemented a new feature allowing you to receive emails about MapYourVote activity! This can be anything from when someone rates or favorites your poll, votes in it, or if someone replies to one of your comments. All these alerts are called Votifications and by default they appear in your inbox located at the top right hand corner of MapYourVote.

To make it easy for you, after any one of your unread Votifications becomes a week old, we will email the whole list for you to see!

Archive - Announcing the official launch of MapYourVote.com

Saturday Sep 01, 2012

Today we announce the official launch of MapYourVote! As some of you know, it’s been a long road here. The idea itself is almost four years old and I remember the origin very well. I was having a causal conversation with my father over the phone when he mentioned, “it would be cool to see how people actually felt across the globe”. I paused ... and said yes, it would. Like all great ideas, it evolved, and four years later, MapYourVote has become the world’s first Social Voteworking website.

We’ve come a long way since the origin of free speech and free thought. We’ve come a long way since the forums of Ancient Greece, the birth place of democracy. But even in today’s advance data driven society, where information flows with incredible speed, there is something missing. The forums have not been updated, and real opinions drown in the vast oceans of data.

MapYourVote can end this. MapYourVote can be the new forum, allowing ideas and true opinions to flow with unprecedented effectiveness. MapYourVote can help us answer the questions, both big and small.

So my father and I have a favor to ask. Help us continue to evolve MapYourVote. Help us spread the word that a new forum is in town. Tell your friends, your family, their friends and their family. Share polls on Facebook, Digg, Google Plus and Twitter. Help us grow MapYourVote into the site that it can be. After all, It’s Your Vote. Your World.

Happy Voting!
