Every now and then we need a little change eh? In moving the virtual furtniture around here at RYW Community Systems Ltd, we decided that a change was in order from Reward Your World to BetterPoints. "Why?", you ask. Well, I'm going to do as my Mum used to do when I was a kid and answer your question with another question. Why not? (though I fear my Mum did this to end a conversation, and I'm doing it to open a conversation; go figure) Whilst Reward Your World is still at the heart of what we're about, we're out to make the world a better place through our social currency, BetterPoints.
Social currency with real value, tangible and implied. When you are out for your morning walk or run, each point you accrue is a representation of a better, healthier you! Each time you take the train or the bus, you're doing something to make your world a better place. And when you take the points you've earned and get that delicious cream laden mocha frappichino latte you're...we'll, you're indulging in about 500-800 calories, but hey! Free coffee. That's better, right? :)
For those of you who need more a more convincing, BETTER argument, here are some things we've come up with.
- Anne, our Reading Regional Manager, says that there are too many fighting consonants in Reward Your World. THWACK!
- Our COO says that too many rolling RRRs can be dangerous.
- My Mum says, "Because I'm your mother and I say so!" Eek!
- I reserve comment at this time as I settle in and enjoy the sunshine...and coffee. Ahh! That is Better!
At any rate, we're finally starting to get used to the change here at BetterPoints and I hope you are too!
