I had just been thinking about incentives to get people to continue to play.
For example, one of the reasons I continue to play HearthStone, is because if you get to rank 20 each month you get a new card back, so I make sure play enough to do that each month.
It was a similar thing when I used to play Club Penguin, there was a free clothing item each week (I think), so I would make sure to login at least once a week to get it.
In short, getting new customization items for playing every so often, can keep people coming back.
I had been thinking a similar thing could work with 8bitmmo, by getting a special character customization item (hat, shirt etc.) each month for logging in so many days in a month or completing a specific task, (e.g. kill 3 people in PvP), or something else.
I'm not sure how possible adding in an new item every month would be, partly from a design point of view.
Then, I was thinking, the best thing about this game is the fact the world is 95%+ player made. So perhaps the bonus items could be player made as well, like having people submit designs each month, then having a poll to determine the best/most popular ones to be added (probably here on the forums) and Sim9/RobbyZ would have the final say, making sure nothing explicit/offensive/copyright infringing gets picked.
Again, I'm not sure exactly how doable this is, the number of active players on the forums may be a limiting factor and how much time and effort it may take.

I should perhaps have wrote this in the suggestion box instead of here, I only didn't because I thought I would get more feedback here and I figured I might be discussing multiple ideas and I was thinking of sharing my thoughts, as well as making a suggestion, if that makes any sense. Also, sorry if this has been discussed before.

PS. I hope I didn't break any rules in my first post on the forums.

2. You were right to post this on the forums (no one uses suggestion box anymore)
3. You didn't break any rules
