- The Referral Contests are monthly contests to see who can bring in the most new players to the Empire. The contest itself has two categories inside the competition; one is to bring the most players to the server, and the other part of the competition is to get the most "clicks". The prizes for the categories include the Referral Block Of Clickyness and Supporter Vouchers.
Every month, six prizes are given out. For referring the most people, you earn a Supporter Voucher, which can be redeemed to a Community Manager for a month of a corresponding supporter rank. For receiving the most clicks of your banner, you can win a Referral Block Of Clickyness. Depending on the rank, there are Diamond, Gold, and Iron Referral Blocks of Clickyness.
How to Participate(top)
First off, you will need to head to the "My Empire" tab at the top of the Site. Then, scroll down to the bottom of the page.
At the bottom of the page is your referral banner. The link below is already tailored to fit your username to help earn you referrals.
How to get your Referral Banner noticed!
To get started, head over to the forum section of Planet Minecraft (or any other Minecraft Forum). Under the "Servers" sub-forum, you can find people who are looking for servers. You can reply to the thread with the banner in the post or in your signature to spread the word about EMC. If you properly put up the image, any clicks and referrals will automatically be counted towards the contest.
The "Servers" section is not the only place to be seen. Be active! Post on threads as you would on our forums. A single post with the referral banner in your signature is seen by everyone who views that thread. Imagine the influence that a larger amount of posts could make.
You can use the referral banner as your signature on any forums that you frequently visit, Minecraft related or not. The best way for the Empire to be amazing is for us to be a Community, both on and off of the Empire.
Take part in events on EMC, or create one yourself. Visit a special Empire Residence.
