    It would be also good if you could use Droids to join a giveaway :)

    Are the "droids" always given instantly after finishing certain task. I'm confused, as it's showing little less points.

    Hope its not long but one of the AA team could at least respond to my suggestion. Its all nice that they want to make a good community by go if droids but without their input it will be another small lame community.

    Be sure that the staff is reading all the comment and taking them under advisement.
    The thing with this one is; not everyone is involved in Aandroid Authority in the same way. Some people just don't like forums and cutting them out of the giveaway for that reason is not something i would like to see happen. That said an extra ticket for people who registered in the community could be a useful thing on all sides :)

    Ok well its good that they read it but they could reply in the manner that you did... And you could put like 10 droids per ticket.. Nothing that would be really unfair, but yeah even if you register to the forum would be good...

    Hey @Martin Zlocha. First, glad to have you as part of the community. Second, Luka may not be "staff" but he's absolutely rocking the forum for us and has been a major influence on this community. I assure you that if Luka is working on something for you, it is being handled by the appropriate staff.

    I like the idea of involving the forum and Droids for the giveaways. I don't imagine it would account for any extra tickets, beyond the current maximum, but whatever forum action is decided on could be an optional method to max out your entries. Anyhow, I don't get to make these decisions either, but you just got my vote in the discussion.

    After some deliberation we have decided to remove some methods on how you can earn Droids. We have removed awarding Droids for new posts/threads/comments. The reason why we removed this is because we feel like it will promote spammers and posters to spam our community and thus lead to lower quality discussions.

    So in order to prevent this from happening we have removed these methods. We have however increased the amount of Droids earned for a "Like" to 5 Droids. I think this will put more emphasis on quality over quantity.

    We have also removed the Droids from public view under your profile, it's like your wallet and it should be kept private.

    Thanks for everyones continued support as we continue to build the community.

    Yup, I can confirm that likes are still stuck at 2 points, @Derek Scott .

    As Derek said in the above post, your droid coins are now stored in a personal wallet. Your total has been removed from public view, but can still be viewed through your own profile page.
