    Are there rewards for activity on the forums?

    Out of interest, I was wondering if there were awards, like giving away a load of gems, based on activity/reps in the forums. It would be an effective method of increasing activity here as well

    They occasionally have contest which may provide gems, but nothing based upon activity.

    No there is not...and I would be averse to Supercell giving out gems for activity or presence on the forums. That would only create an echo chamber of people wanting to brownnose in order to get gems. The forums would become useless as a place of genuine feedback. Which is what SC needs this place to be. Its fine as it is, despite some people saying the forums are extremely toxic (they're not) healthy debate 99% of the time is not toxic. These forums were far more toxic in 2014 and 2015. They have aged well. They are fine as is.


    Never argue with idiots, they will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    What is interesting is that "back in those days" they did select a forumer each month, giving them in-game gems, and a custom title. They stopped that shortly after I joined (early 2015). To your point, when they did reward monthly prizes, the forums were in a much worst state. The people who now post do so to contribute to the community, not for seeking "freebies" in return. So I am in agreement with you.

    While I am very much in agreement that there should not be any in game benefits from posting a lot here, I think the biggest reason for the reduction in toxicity was the unfortunate removal of the CR forums.

    Although CR only accounted for about 30% of the posts, it probably made up 60-70% of the moderator workload.

    I'm already getting the rewards in the form of gaining knowledge and having the opportunity to share it with others at a later date. I don't need any other rewards.

    The silver lining in the removal of the CR subforum is the departure of many toxic posters. And they found creative ways to express toxicity in the CR subforum per the assessment of one forum moderator. I'm still shaking my head at some posters using a serious medical and often terminal illness to describe the cards they hated.

    If I remember correctly you guys are still against the decision of Removal of CR and BB forums?

    Yes, but it's not going to be changed now

    IMO, Team CR and BB removing their presence from the SC forums and transferring their flags to Reddit indicates that each game operates independently of each other. Just because Team CoC and Team HD have an official channel in the SC forums doesn't mean that other game teams will follow the same path.

    Take Team Brawlstars for example. They made the audacious move to exclude the SC forum as one of the channels for feedback from the community during a critical stage of development. It worked out well for the game as it was released globally last year. Other SC game teams in various stages of development have seen it, so the default setting to get feedback from the community may no longer be the SC forums.

    The future for feedback and discussion may be in Discord, IMO. I truly hope that I'm wrong.
