Prusameters count for makes, but not for prints or collections

So I've made a couple button designs for the competition, and when i post one i don't get any prusameters. When i make a collection with the buttons i printed, it doesn't give me the prusameters. I've checked the recent transactions and the dates all add up. It s a bit annoying since i have 300+ prusameters, so my spool is right around the corner

I thought the competition was to win filament..?  I wouldn't expect to get a prize just for entering.

Cheerio,

Maybe the universe is a just place after all?

Haven't looked at the OP's specific designs, and in all fairness maybe they're totally awesome, but in general the idea of handing out Prusameters for a 2 minute design job for a round disk with 2 holes really rubs me the wrong way.

RE:

The thing is, on the page with how to get prusameters it says that for uploading a make, or model you get 10 prusameters so something is not working. And to be honest, I completely agree about the idea of handing out prusameters for basically 2 minutes of design, but it doesn't work on any model you upload so no matter if it's a button or fan duct or like a whole project. I think one of the goals of the free prusament is to not only give back to the best designers, but also to hook people onto prusament because once you get one spool you won't want to go back to lower quality filament (or at least i've read so) It gives people a platform to try out prusament. It also definitely brought a lot of people to PrusaPrinters wich might become a much bigger selling point for prusa machines, and will give people a better thingiverse. I've seen another post  that said that it didn't work for them either this month, but did the previous so something is propably broken.

Have you looked at them?  A high proportion can never have sewn on a button in their lives ... they seem to have grasped the idea of a disc with holes but failed to look at a button to see how it works.

Apparently, for somewhat unexpected reasons, it's a tougher competition than we realised.

RE:

I'm about sick of this give me something for uploading a model crap, your right its ruining the site.

 

This wasn't very well thought out in my opinion, and yes I'm happy I'm not the only one that thinks that.

 

I live on a ranch, and we know that crap draws flies.

Probably basic comprehension, quite a few posted all 10 of their rewardable builds in one go; in many cases they have zero downloads and are unlkely to earn anything more with them.

10 builds count each month.  Only 10 prints count *in total*.  I doubt anyone will bother downloading buttons when it's quicker to design from scratch than rummage through the uploaded files for a useable pattern.

You won’t get prusameters for your prints as you have already uploaded 10. This is the max you will get meters for…period. Enjoy the buttons!

Limiting the max numbers of designs you get any Prusamters for to 10 in total, forever, is maybe saving the site. Flooding the site with zero-download files isn't going to get you very far. If you want to earn Prusament roles, you'll need to transition to designing something that people will be interested in downloading. That and uploading successful prints on existing designs (which does not spam the site and adds life and feedback for existing designs)

I originally didn't like this limitation but now I'm glad they did. Hopefully this will rein in the slew of half-baked designs. Even better, stop the flash contest madness.…
