    A problem to this would be people using their alts aswell to get those extra rewards, people that do those things are already sketchy enough and rewarding them even more wouldn't be the best of ideas.

    Rather than handing out something directly that would somehow influence the market you can just stick with the regular rewards. But then there's already the thing with the epic crates, making it kinda useless.
    Every 3rd day should reward you something unique, every 10th day gives you a crate basically, maybe every 30th vote within the same month can give you access to something on the server, like some kind of minigame for the people that managed to get their 30 votes, and if they manage to complete, compete or whatever they get a small reward.

    Rather than picking one person out of 40 persons to get a prefix, make them compete for it and give the winner the prefix.

    Make a UHC for topvoters, something like that, it'll make people curious and force them to vote more often and frequently rather than giving them something they already have like a bunch of diamonds.

    By the way, top voter most likely means one winner; otherwise it is not a competition. If multiple people ended up with the same number of votes, then possibly a raffle to determine a winner?

    I personally don't think there is a reason to give someone a special reward for voting. UHC atleast it is a competition for pvp and Architect is for builders. I guess you could already consider Veteran the top of the top which is a 1000 votes equating to roughly a year and change spent on the server. if you buy a rank like elite immortal or titan your vote pool is so flooded there is almost no point.

    I also would like to point out that every diamond handed out does ruin the economy (imo, at least). I remember a time when a stack of db was worth $10 for IRL deals, but the value for db has gone down so much that its half of what it was before, aka a stack of db now only being worth $5 or so. Every time a player gets diamonds from voting it adds diamonds into the game, that wasn't in the world before. And honestly, I got all the way to Immortal using IRL deals, and this was during a time when I never really went mining, most of my diamonds were earned through voting or selling rares or just valuable items in general (many of which, I also got through voting). Adding 5 diamonds here and there may not seem like a big deal, but it adds up, a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. So if 5 diamonds can be bad, then imagine what 64 diamonds would be like.

    I think if anything, the tag could be changed for a bit, but thats really it. Something that doesn't have any physical change, just cosmetic and for bragging rights. I also think that it shouldn't be random for those who voted the same amount, I think that it should be more so "whoever beat this threshold this month can get the tag." But even that seems like a stretch to me. As shadowfire had said, veteran already exists as that bragging right kind of thing.

    However these are just my views on this topic, you are all entitled to your own opinions haha. But while I commend you on this idea (as it would try getting some players to vote more), I just don't feel like it actually will be implemented.

    The less diamonds handed out the better.

    And don't get me wrong, I love handouts and rares, but if I stand back and look at everything as a whole, I think there should be less handouts (not eliminated completely, just less, so we wouldn't be getting new rares as often)

    On a server I played for a good 4 years we had VOTW (voter of the week) and VOTM (VOT month) where you got a coloured name etc and a little tag by your name for the next month. Maybe here you could have that and perhaps an extra sethome or 2 or 500x500 claim space?

    Something cosmetic, like a VOTM rank would work the best here imho, anything else seems to have more negatives than positives.

    If you were ever going to implement something like this, and imo it wouldnt necessarily be a bad thing to do, you shouldn't be gifted things like dia for reasons already stated. conversely, a cosmetic change wouldnt appeal to a lot of players which defeats the entire purpose.

    Why not go for something that only indirectly affects the economy, and in a small way; a random tool that cannot be further enchanted, that has eff 6 but a very, very, limited number of uses (100 blocks?). gives new ppl a taste of what they could get whilst still being somewhat useful to other players, for me ive always wanted to try out an eff 6 shovel/axe. Could also encourage more spending at the site store, if i'd had just a taste of eff 6 early in the server, i would've immediately got the unbreakable set and proceeded to buy eff 6 for my pick, and for early game the only way to do that is with your wallet.
