Introducing MapYourVote Rewards!
MapYourVote Rewards is a brand new feature that allows users
to win prizes and rewards. Here’s how it
works. As you do things throughout
MapYourVote, you will begin to earn and collect Reward Points. The more points you earn the more likely you
will win a Reward Prize, because each point counts as an entry to a
raffle. MapYourVote will hold raffles more
and more as we grow. Prizes can be
anything, but will often be gift cards to online stores like Amazon.com.
So how do you collect reward points? Well that’s a good question and it’s quite easy. Reward points are collected as you perform various actions throughout MapYourVote. Here is a list of the ways you can earn reward points.
By Voting – Earn a Reward point for every 5 votes you cast.
By Commenting – Earn a Reward point for every 3 comments you make.
By Asking – Earn a Reward point for every 2 questions you ask.
By Having High Vote Power – Earn a Reward point for voting at elast once and having 100% Vote Power
By Being Socially Connected – Earn Reward points for being connected to Facebook and publishing your activity.
By Referring People – Earn a point for every Referral you make. You can make referrals by sending your referral links to people and having them sign up.
So do these points last forever? Not quite. Points will expire after 30 days or if you win a prize so you should always strive to continue earning points to increase your chances of being chosen in the raffle and winning the reward contest.
MapYourVote Rewards page also shows where you stand next to other users. You can view the Leader Board to see all the top scoring users in the community.
1000s of people are already having fun with MapYourVote, but the gamification of the site through MapYourVote Rewards makes it even more enjoyable!
MapYourVote Fun Polls and Quizzes

When you feel like smiling, laughing, or simply being entertained, take a look at the hundreds of Fun polls the MapYourVote community has asked. Fun polls are often about music, videos, and funny pictures, but with a community as creative as MapYourVote, you will often stumble on a fun poll that completely surprises you. We've all taken surveys and quizzes that are fun, and MapYourVote lets you find these with ease. Asking questions can be fun as well so if you are the creative type, create your own fun poll.

Introducing Poll & Vote Activity Emails!
|We’ve just implemented a new feature allowing you to receive emails about MapYourVote activity!

All these alerts are called Votifications and by default they appear in your inbox located at the top right hand corner of MapYourVote. But as we all know, life can get busy and sometimes it’s hard to check these on a regular basis. To make it easy for you, after any one of your unread Votifications becomes a week old, we will email the whole list for you to see! If you want to see these emails show up more or less frequently, you can! Simply navigate to your Votification Settings in your profile and you can customize it to your liking!|
We've added some new Votifications to keep you in the loop! You will now receive votifications in your inbox when your poll is rated high or Favorited. Know exactly how people feel about your polls at all times. Remember you can always change what votifications you receive via the Votification Settings tab in your profile.

Introducing Votifications - Keeping You In the Loop!
Votifications are essentially Notifications about things that happen on MapYourVote. Votifications are a brand new feature in MapYourVote that let you know when something cool happens on the site that we think you will want to know. This can be anything from someone comments or votes on your poll to summaries of results when your poll closes. You can choose what Votifications you want to receive in your profile under the “Votifications” tab. Some votifications are not implemented yet, but your settings will not change. In addition to receiving these notifications in your votification inbox (located in the top right hand corner of the site), you can also choose to have them emailed. Emails will typically be sent at the end of the day or week, and would include all your votifications at once so you can easily see what’s happened. Please let us know if you have any general suggestions for improving the Votification system or ideas for new votifications!
Announcing the official launch of MapYourVote.com
Vote Power – the more you give, the more you get
What is this “Vote power” thing anyway? Vote Power is a way to measure how much influence your vote has in the MapYourVote (TM) community when filters are applied. Filters in MapYourVote ™ are a way to narrow results down to a desired demographic of interest. For example, I may want to look at the results based on Gender, Age, or other voter characteristic. When a filter is applied, if you haven’t provided the type of information associated with the filter, your vote will be automatically dropped from the results. So “Vote Power” goes up the more information you provide, because it becomes more likely that your vote won’t be automatically dropped. With a high “Vote Power”, your vote is always considered.
Why My Email Address?
To create a MapYourVote ™ account we ask you provide your real email address. Upon creating account, you then have to confirm this is actually you. Handing your email address out can be unnerving but we do this to defend “Your Vote. Your World” and discourage fake users from voting multiple times. In addition, your email is occasionally used to contact you about important MapYourVote (TM) activity, like, for example, when your polls are approved or when voting closes. MapYourVote (TM) works extremely hard to protect this information because your privacy is very important to us.
Polls That Cycle every Day
The idea for MapYourVote(TM) stemmed from the idea, wouldn't it be wonderful if you could find out how people were feeling around the world on any given day. MapYourVote(TM) provide the ability to develop an electronic POLL/Question and ask it to the world and set that questions so the results are only counted for the day Midnight To Midnight. People may find out how others feel that day whether they are sick or how energetic they are.

Electronic Polls may also be set for a periods of time of more than one day collecting information or current events and then in time pale in importance but are very important for a week or a month for example. Questions regarding Sports and big events such as the Superbowl, elections, A big auto Race and who do you think will win provide fun information about how people think around the world. Soccer is an excellent example for tracking world opinion in the sport of soccer around the world as all countries compete for entry into the world cup. and the Europe cup and even local country soccer for where ever they live.
