Perception Is Reality

What is BravoNation?

Posted on: December 22, 2007

From the website’s logged-in console (click here to goto BravoNation):

“A Bravo is something either a website or individual gives to someone to recognize their achievements. For example, we might give you a Bravo for being the Most Diligent Blog Reader…”

BravoNation members, or “people” are called Bravoteers can send each other custom or pre-designed bravos. Perhaps the best option is that you can use an API to give bravos to people you know.

again, from the site:

“A reviews site can send a Bravo to a user who writes 5 reviews. A games site can send a Bravo when you’ve reached a level of a flash game. For applications that want to implement a user reward system, the possibilities really are endless.”

I found out about this on Sameer Vasta’s blog, Squandrous and he wanted an invite. So I got Kevin Cheng, who works with experience design and gaming concepts on BravoNation to send him one. I don’t know if he actually sent Vasta an invite but he sent me one. So if you didn’t get it Vasta, let me know. It’s the least I can do for Vasta for being such a pal. Sometimes the simplest way to get something is to ask, eh? It seems like an interesting service. I’m going to be exploring it more over the course of the beta testing to see what all we can do with it. They producers hint at more stuff coming soon.

Bravo to all of you!
