Free TPE in announcements
#1

Hey as a casual user, it would be really nice to make a linked post in SHL / SMJHL Player Progressions when giving out TPE any special event.

All I'm saying is keep doing the announcement TPE thing, but make a post in the player progression section linking to it to ensure its visible double time

That’s a good suggestion.

Can this be implemented?

Expanding on this....

If not already installed, you could install a plugin like THIS that can automatically make a global notification bar at the top (or limited to certain usergroups, etc) whenever a new special event, free tpe, player progression, etc post is made.  You can set it to be indefinite, or have a specific time limit (48 hours or something after initial post) to let people know.  

Also could be set up for any forum or any category on the forum.

I’ll express my beliefs on this for recruitment TPE particularly:

That is intended for people who participated, which someone who doesn’t check announcements and is super casual probably didn’t. It’s not a giveaway, it’s a reward for helping to grow the league. For ensuring our future, our survival. For other things such as Bell Lets Talk or the Trick or Treat from 2018, this may be applicable.

Would an excited new member immediately understand to check announcements for TPE, considering every other time it has been under player progression?

Is a casual member assumed to not want to contribute to league growth because their ability or drive to access site isn't daily?
Consider my player is deep in regression, I have been on the site for 3 years, I don't need to check every corner daily. However, I do wish to help grow the league and would also appreciate opportunity to garner availavle TPE.

Casual =/= disinterested

This seems strange... If it's supposed to only be for those people why can anyone claim it? TPE is for the people, make it easy for them to find it and you may even encourage more to participate by getting more involvement, instead of trying to gatekeep the TPE.

We aren’t allowed to expressly give TPE for upvoting, we used to and we all got warned by Reddit.

So in that case, making the post and getting more people into the thread by crossposting to progression would give a greater opportunity for more participation as the thread is likely to get more visits than only having it in announcements - right? If 10% of the people who view the post actually go ahead and upvote it, you're better off having 500 people view it and get 50 than 100 viewing and getting 10.

I just don't see the downside.

@karey I said this ^ when you proposed it but I actually don't have perms for the threads in the announcements forum so I can't link it to Player Progression. Someone else (with more perms) probably can

I guess I could post the subs in Player progression if @hotdog gives permission. It would warrant further discussion though with the rest of the team.
