[Stub] Notifications & Cards
PM, whisper, mail, all can be horribly abused.
Habitica has a way around this, cards.
Add a notification option. If activated, a player adds a hidden notification email address for cards and system notifications.
The system could use this hidden email for notification.
Players can send preprinted cards to this hidden email address.
Some have a random message from a predetermined list like Happy New Year ( Have a great year, enjoy the new year, we made it through another fun year, etc. )
If set to no, players will get a pop up when trying to send the hidden email a card.
This avoids the need to create a player mailbox since player’s regular - or alternate - email handles it.
Cost per card doubles each time a card is sent and is reset each calendar day.
account settings- Receive options are all (Y/N)
Player cards ( bought for iron= Great raid defense, Great War defense, I will get you next time )
Co-leader cards ( bought for food= Titan HP low, War reset close, Good job)
Gifts ( bought for recruits = transfers X gems to another account. Non-linear recruits cost and fixed rate prevents abuse )
First iron card costs 1k, Second 2k, third 4K, etc. resets to 1k next day.
Each hidden email has a daily limit for each type of incoming cards ( iron, food, recruits ) to prevent troll mobs and mass gem transfer.
Or add a friendship system like Pokémon GO to limit bad actors and transfer abuse.
