Treasure Island

How does Treasure Island work?
Poemhunter is going into a new era of membership. Members will belong to a category of ranking based on their participation in the website. Every member will start off as a rookie with a ticket to the Pirate Ship. As the member spends more time in PoemHunter and gets more active, he/she will get an entrance visa to the Treasure Island and permission to do digging in the island afterwards. Then, more activity will lead the member to bronze box, silver box and finally the golden box.


Titles Given to Members based on their ranking

Rookie 1st Stage: Rookie (0-1,000 Points: Ticket to the Pirate Ship)

Freshman 2nd Stage: Freshman (1,001 – 2,500 Points: Entrance visa to the treasure island)

Hunting for the Treasure:
We will pick a topic every week (e.g. love, art, passion).
In that particular week, we'll insert yellow boxes to 20 poems within that topic. Whoever catches those poems will get 25 points for each poem caught.

Most importantly, we will be placing colored boxes within different poems in our site. You will be hunting for those boxes in order to earn extra points. These poems will be picked randomly.

There will be:

1,000 yellow boxes: 25 points each
50 blue boxes: 300 points each
30 red boxes: 500 points each
20 green boxes: 750 points each

Lucky Poem: There will always be a lucky poem within PoemHunter website. Whoever reaches that poem will automatically climb up one level.
