Once logged into the control panel, you will notice a new item called Points at the top of the main menu.
Clicking on this item brings up a page showing points earned for letting others know about www.outages.io.
In each agent dashboard, there is an option called 'Available packages' where reports can be upgraded or special features can be enabled using our convenient paypal buttons. Some of those items allow the exchange of points. Points can be earned in different ways and we'll add more options over time to make it even easier to build them up.
Points can be earned for referring a friend, co-worker, neighbor as well as sharing a link to www.outages.io on another public site such as a forum or blog comment. More items will be added over time to make it fun and rewarding to share Outages.io with others.
Why are we offering this as an option?
Primarily, it is because Outages.io can be difficult to find on paid search engines. The more links on the Internet about Outages.io, the better chances that people can learn about the service. The more members we have, the more we can improve our monitoring tools for everyone.
Providers, outage sites and network operators easily outbid everyone for key phrases that allow people to find us. Being armed with facts about your Internet services is not in their best interest and our new feature may help to change this.
We hope you will take part and help spread the word about www.outages.io.
