Starting today, leaving a front-page article comment of approximately 50 words or more will net members 1CT for their participation. Comments must be on-topic and generally show some thought to be eligible for earning CT. In other words, spam doesn't count.
CT for comments will be handed out weekly at the start of each week. CT will be awarded per week, not per comment or per article. However, that's not to say additional comments will not be rewarded!
On top of earning their 1 CT a week, consistent commenters will be eligible to receive a Kudos award which can be combined with other bronze milestone awards to redeem even more CT and a handful of GP too! This award is reserved for only the most active and thoughtful commenters and will be given out at the discretion of the staff, not determined by specific criteria.
To keep things fair and simple, this update will not be applied retroactively, meaning existing comments and new comments on existing articles will not earn CT. Instead, all future articles (after this one) will qualify for as long as they remain on the front page.
So what are you waiting for? Get out there and start commenting!
