  1. So I was sitting around on SMP8, when I decided to do /promo to see if I missed anything, and I ended up thinking this idea/suggestion up.


    A normal promo that everyone could claim would still be released BUT there would be another promo that would not be on the /promo list, which is the secret one.

    There are several methods to go about giving out details to obtaining this:
    • Hints/Clues around each SMPs town spawn
    • Hints/Clues from staff
    • Hints/Clues on the forums
    • Hints/Clue when a person votes
    There are more that I probably didn't think of, so feel free to add any that you think would be another good method.

    Suggestions to add to this idea by other players
    • Randomized Code
    • Limited time period
    Once a player has put together all of the hints and figured out the /promo commander of the secret promo, they would be able to claim it.

    Some downsides to this idea
    • Players, once they figured out the name, could tell other people and ruin the fun.
    • Players that did not figure out the name of the promo once it has expired could be upset.
    • Extra coding could be needed to hide it from the /promo list.

  2. Not a bad idea, but it would spread like a wildfire, maybe only be able to claim for one day?
  3. Yeah possibly have a set time period of 2-5 days and then remove it.
  4. Maybe it has a special code, so everytime someone cracks i, it will change code
  5. Sorry but I have to give this a -1. This would cause to many issues with players becoming upset and I think there would be a lot of players begging each other or staff to tell them the name of the promo.

  6. Both of these were addressed in the OP,

    Most all changes can cause issues with players, but just because a few players may not like a change, doesn't mean it shouldn't be implemented so players who actually want to use a new feature/update can enjoy it, and those who do not can ignore the change.

    Clearly, a set of rules can be instated where you may not ask staff or another player for the name of a "secret" promo, and if so you can be punished.
  7. I realize both were addressed, I was simply stating my opinion on this suggestion.

  8. Sorry, -1.

    I would +1 if it was set up sort of like Garry's Mod - a secret phrase gets you the achievement (in this case, a promo)
    Every new years, the secret phrase would reset and players would have all year to figure it out before it resets.

    Maybe a subtle hint would be given. If the phrase was "Anemone" the hint could be "Ocean"

    EDIT: How do we know this suggestion isn't already a thing and nobody has told us about it? HMMMMMM?
