ClickTrackProfit is fundamentally a training tool to teach people how to use traffic exchanges and other vital tools for affiliate marketing.
Learning to use traffic exchanges, while ultimately rewarding, may not be everybody’s idea of fun. But CTP is a gamified system and it is fun.
CTP Teams could be looked upon as a gamified system within an existing gamified system but it has a very serious purpose indeed – to give people practical experience of collaborative team work and to develop leadership skills.
But as with any gamified system there are a series of rules which do not need to be formally stated but which are understood by all.
Here are some of them:
- there must be rules
- players must accept and play by the rules
- players may try to seek advantage for themselves and their teams
- attempting to seek advantage is good as long as it is done within the rules
- the system must be fair to all players
Now as with any rule-based system there will be people who are so determined to gain an advantage that they are willing to ignore all the rules in order to do so…this is cheating and it is not acceptable.
Yesterday on one of the teams a member was noticed to be behaving suspiciously. It appeared that he had found a way to claim badges that he had no entitlement to claim.
The team in question discussed what happened and kicked the culprit off the team. The owner of the traffic exchange which was being cheated banned the user from the program and he has now been banned from CTP too.
In a good gamified system the members will police themselves – this is what happened yesterday. It is a credit to all who behaved honorably yesterday to nip this in the bud.
Cheating does not pay.
Good call folks.
