Voting Information and Bonuses
  • Empire Minecraft gives players the option to earn Rupees each day by voting, which is extremely rewarding for both players and the server.


    How to vote(top)


    You can vote by clicking the various links below which will take you to Minecraft server listings. When you are voting on multiple sites, the best method is to right-click the links and open them all in separate tabs or by using the Easy Voting option. The voting page can be found here.

    You will usually have to fill in your username when you're voting. When you are doing this, make sure it includes the same characters and capital letters that your username does in-game. If you enter your name incorrectly, even if a player with that username does not exist on the Empire, the voting site will still say that player voted, but you will not receive another chance to put the correct name in until the site lets you vote again.

    Most sites also require you to complete a captcha. The captcha is usually a puzzle, a picture challenge, or a word challenge which verifies that you are a real person.

    You have 30 hours from your last vote until your streak number (used to determine your rewards) is lost. However, it does not completely reset, and you will also only lose several streak increments if you continue to vote after the missed period. It is advised that you vote on a couple of sites at a time on multiple occasions throughout the 24 hours to ensure that your bonus is safe.

    Tips(top)


    • The number of sites that you can vote on and the voting system can always change. Make sure you check back to the Empire News forums often!
    • It is advised that you vote on a couple of sites at a time on multiple occasions throughout the 24 hours to ensure that your bonus is safe.
    • A tip to consider when trying to remember to vote every day is by bookmarking all the sites in a folder and then, depending on your browser, right-clicking on the folder to open its contents.
    Voting is a great way to earn Rupees and items, and most importantly, it is a great way to help the Empire grow!

    How the reward system works(top)


    The voting rupee reward system works according to several rules which interplay to determine how many Rupees you get at a specific streak number. This section will also outline the allocation of token and item rewards.

    Rupees are automatically credited after you vote, and you can check whether or not you were credited by checking your Transaction History.

    Rupee bases and multipier(top)

    You are awarded a base amount of Rupees, per each site you vote on, per vote (subject to those site's timeframe limits). The base depends on what site that is; currently, the bases are as follows:
    • TopG: 400r
    • Server Pact, Minecraft-Mp: 150r
    • All others: 100r
    As soon as you hit streak #1 (usually your second day of voting), 100r is added to the rupee reward for your first vote at that level and each following level.

    On your first vote at streak numbers 2 through to 21, 10r is added to your first vote at that streak, on an incremental basis. For example, at streak #2 you get an extra 10r, at #5 you get an extra 40r, at #20 you get an extra 190r, and at #21 you are awarded an additional 200r.

    Example(top)

    If you vote on a site with no special base bonus (so it awards you 100r/vote), your first bonus (for the site you first vote on) at each streak level will be as specified. Lighter streak levels indicate those in which pattern rupee bonuses apply. You can adjust the example by adding Rupees to account for increased base amounts, and/or by adding other base amounts if you also vote on other sites.



    Patterned rewards(top)


    On top of the standard rupee and token reward systems, there are special bonuses packed in the system, which are as follows:

    Patterned rupee bonuses(top)

    Occurs
    Rupees
    Every 5 days300
    Every 15 days1000
    Every 30 days4000
    Every 45 days7500
    Every 50 days25000
    Every 100 days40000

    Patterned token bonuses(top)

    Every 100 days3000
    Every 150 days4500
    Every 200 days6000
    Every 365 days10000

    When the following rewards are earned, the items will be mailed to you via the Mail System, and the Rupees will be added to your balance. There are two types of item rewards: the ones that can be earned multiple times, and the ones that can be earned only once per player. The current bonuses are as follows:

    Patterned item bonuses(top)

    Occurs
    Routine Rewards
    Every 2 days1-10 diamonds depending on bonus
    Every 3 days1-10 emeralds depending on bonus
    Every 20 daysVault Voucher
    Every 50 daysStable Voucher

    One time items(top)


    Additional Rupees, token bonuses, and items are only awarded when your vote bonus reaches a number higher than it has been before. For example, if you vote and get your streak up to 20, you earn a Vault Voucher. However, if you miss a day and your streak goes down, and then gets back up to 20, you will not earn another Vault Voucher until your streak gets to 40. This does not include higher voting streaks prior to the addition of specific rewards, meaning that all the earned items will be added together and sent to you next time your streak goes up.

    Voters item replacement policy(top)


    If a player loses a Voters item due to a glitch, a lag test, derelict claim, or misplacement, the player may request a replacement item from the Senior Staff members once per item, while agreeing to the following conditions upon request:
    • The item is not sold/loaned to another player at time of request.
    • The player has actually tried to look for the item in all vaults, chests, ender chests, inventories, or other possible locations across the SMPs. If Senior Staff members find the original while searching, the replacement use for the item will still apply.
    • The player will return the duplicate to a SS+ in the case the original is located.
    • The player must have attained the voting bonus associated with the item.
    • Replacement of the item will be written in the player's Square logs for evidence record.
    • If the player is found to be abusing the replacement system to gain duplicate Voters Items, the punishment will be the same as exploiting a glitch: a permanent ban.
    If a Voters item is lost as a result of an account purge because of a ban, the Voters item(s) will not be replaced. However, your voting bonus will also be reset to zero, allowing you to re-earn your Voters items. Note that a bonus reset will count as your one replacement.

    There's a lot that makes up the Empire. Learn a bit about us, how it all works and how to thrive in it.
