Changes to Eaves (Legacy) Missions

As of today, December 17th, Eaves (Legacy) Missions will have a maximum reward of 10,000e per Reward.

This change does not affect Eaves (Scaled) Missions, which are the most popular types of Missions for both Eaves and Vees Reward. You can still create high reward Eaves Missions, but you will need to use Eaves (Scaled) Missions. not only does this benefit users based on engagement and reputation, it helps us manage the missions eco-system.

This means that all Eaves (Legacy) Missions must offer a reward of 10,000e or lower, meaning you will not be able to “Re-run” a Mission with a higher amount. “Cloning” a Mission will set the Reward Value to the lowest possible (500e) and you will need to set a new Reward before making the Mission active.

Scaled Eaves Missions have been an extremely positive change. We’ve successfully tested Eaves (Scaled) as the default Mission type for over a month.  With our Scaled Eaves Missions we no longer charge for targeting and the interface is very simple: set up your budget, set up a minimum and maximum and off it goes. With Eaves (Scaled) Missions, those receiving negative feedback may get the lowest or even lower reward amount for your Mission. It puts in an extra control mechanism. Missions are getting so much better and easier to use.

Going forward all the innovation will happen with Scaled Missions, whether the reward is in Eaves and Vees.

  1. I think this change makes it harder to do a set investment mission, If I want to offer 50K to invest 250 eaves, I can no longer do that. Also if we ask that all eaves are used to purchase our shares but we don’t know how many eaves the person received than we don’t know if they followed the mission instructions or just walked away with a big chuck of our eaves. I feel legacy was much better for investment missions!

  2. It appears that Empire Avenue may be beginning to move all EA members to the Scaled Mission format so they can begin to phase out the legacy missions. That is limiting our choices on how we would like to run our missions.

    Also, missions that offer 15,000+ guaranteed eaves are the missions that more often get the most people participating in a shorter period of time, as opposed to the 5,000 and even 10,000 missions. Since quite a few of Empire Avenue members are small businesses who use this platform to send out tweets or shares regarding their blogs, products, etc…then having the freedom to choose to give 15,000+ on an equal basis to everyone who participates is important…especially since the higher eaves prizes gets the best response rate in the quickest amount of time. If a person decides to swipe the eaves without doing the mission, then they can be blocked.

    We should have the freedom to choose to offer 15,000+ eaves reward to everyone who does our campaign on an equal basis, IF WE want to do so. I understand that the scaled missions are positive for those who have a better reputation, but the choice needs to be up to the EA member if they decide to award 25,000 on the legacy mission or not, and how we deal with people who have lesser reputations.

    I have been a big supporter of blocking eaves stealers, but I still enjoy giving people eaves equally when I feel like it…even if it is above 10,000.
