Why do you do this?
One of the KEY reasons why i added the minecraft mod, map and texture pack reviews, is to combat all of the BAD websites out there that literally STEAL mods and maps away from the creators websites or forums by 'hosting' the downloads on there own sites. They then falsely advertise these maps or mods as being for versions of minecraft that they are not. Several of these sites actaully add malware and spyware to the
orginal mod or map makers download files. Then, unsuspecting minecrafters not only get there computers infected or information stolen. But they also get frustrated because there attempting to use a mod or map for a version of minecraft that it does not support.
Try to use the IndustrialCraft 1.5.2 mod on minecraft version 1.7.2 and it won't work. Yet these sites are saying it does. Simply so that they can get viewers and 'website hits' I started adding information here as a way to counteract all these BAD websites to give the minecraft community a TRUSTED place to find maps,mods and so forth.
Some modders or map makers only post to reddit, or planetminecraft.com or minecraftforum.net or minecraftmaps.com There are only a handful of known and trusted minecraft community sites. And some minerafters ONLY post to 1 or the other. So, our site attempts to be a go between for all those sites. However.. REDDIT,MCF,PMC & minecraftmaps also have very strict post rules or they are heavily moderated. This site allows minecrafters to post maps and mods and soforth without fear of being 'moderated' (trust me, its highly annoying to many..many a minecrafter to have your map or mod removed becaause a moderator didn't like it or because you mentioned a minecraft server in the information...ect...ect...)
In nutshell, i do this cause i love the minecraft community and want to make it better. Cause i'm tired of all the rules that stifle conversations and prevent the community from talking about whatever they love the most. Cause i'm tired of minecrafters getting scammed from false sites.
Thats why i'm doing this.
What are the RULES?
1- payouts are offered on a FIRST COME FIRST SERVE basis.
There are a limited number of payments available each month. Payments are given on a first come first serve basis. If you are not able to claim the cash payout for one of the months you worked. Do not worry. Your points do NOT expire. You can simply claim one of the payouts the following month. Basically, the first to gain the points needed to claim the payout and then claim the item in the shop.. will get the payment that month. As the website becomes more popular i will be able to offer more cash payouts per month. Allowing everyone to get paid faster. Payments become available again exactly 30 days from when they were 1st claimed. So, if "john" claims the cash payout on march 3rd, and "mary" claims the other cash payout on March 5th, then the cash payouts would be available again on those respective dates on the following the month.
2- payouts are only offered 1 time per month. Once its bought, you'll need to wait until following month.
3- BEFORE any cash payout is made. a Review of the members points is done.
if any foul play is suspected or seen. (I.E. deleting posts and re-posting to get extra points.)
The member will be become a 'BLACKBIRD' meaning, he wont be able to purchase
anyting with points again for SEVERAL..... SEVERAL months.
4- Review Team members may purchase any cash payout offered. with the points they earned.
Occasionally i may offer extra payout rewards for WEBSITE STAFF or for SUBSCRIBERS only.
5- All members of the community, May purchase a ticket in the Randomizer 3.0 Raffles when
there made available.
6- 'Hooptiecoupe' reserves the right to cancel any cash payout for any reason at anytime.
7- All payouts are paid VIA 'PAYPAL' If you don't have a PAYPAL account, then you forfite
your cash payout
and the prize will be made available again.
( some of your points will be refunded so that you can purchase something else in the shop if you want.)
8- Hooptiecoupe MAY consider sending out cash reward payouts via SNAIL mail
or via a GIFT CARD CODE for places like: STEAM, MICROSOFT, PLAYSTATION, NINTENDO,
GAMESTOP, or other such places. But ONLY IF the GIFT CARD matches the Cash Payout reward.
