ANNOUNCEMENTS

Important update: coins, sparks and captcha

21st July 2022

By now, you'll have noticed that things are changing at HICH. Our platform is evolving rapidly, and in order to keep you as updated as possible, we ask that you carefully read the information below:

What you need to know:

When you vote correctly on our most recent posts, you'll now be awarded between 2 - 10 coins at random. When you vote correctly on all other posts, you'll be awarded between 1 - 5 coins at random.

To reward our users who create high-quality posts, we are introducing a brand new 'sparks' system. This is how it will work:

  • If your post achieves 3 stars, you'll be awarded 2000 sparks
  • If your post is Promoted, you'll be awarded 20,000 sparks
  • If your post is Featured, you'll be awarded 50,000 sparks

A captcha feature has been introduced to ensure that only our most genuine users flourish. This is how it will work:

  • You will be shown a post with very simple questions that everyone knows the answer to (a 'captcha'). If you fail to answer the captcha correctly, you will receive a warning message.
  • We will give you a second chance, but if you fail the captcha again, you'll be unable to earn sparks and coins for the next 1 hour.

This latest update is the next stage of a brand new era at HICH. We have a big, bold vision for our platform, and we are excited to take our users with us into the future of opinion-sharing!


Spark System Introduced

11th July 2022

You will notice that we've just made some significant changes here at HICH. We have done this to ensure that our most genuine users prosper, and to pave the way for even bigger (and more exciting!) changes that are coming soon.

Here's a breakdown of what you need to know right now:

  • Our level system has changed and our new levels are: Novice, Certified, Hicher, Pro & Expert.
  • Our weekly withdrawal limit per level has increased: Certified - £5 | Hicher - £50 | Pro & Expert - unlimited!
  • You will no longer spend coins to level-up, instead, you will collect 'sparks.' Once you've collected enough sparks, the sparks will be converted to stars, and when you have enough stars, your level will increase.
  • You earn sparks by voting genuinely and creating high-quality posts.
  • The cost of creating posts has decreased from a 500 coin-minimum, to a 200-coin minimum.
  • The daily combo has been removed.
  • You will now have a daily coin-earning limit, which is dependent on your level.
  • The leaderboard will not be available for a few days, but your current ranking will not be lost.
  • Everyone's level has been reset (keep in mind that level 'certified' now has a higher withdrawal limit than before and is much easier to obtain).
  • These changes will not affect any pending withdrawals.

Thank you for your ongoing support - we appreciate having you as a valued part of the ever-growing HICH community. We have a big and bold vision for HICH, and we can’t wait to take you with us into the future of opinion-sharing!

Kind regards,
The HICH team.
