Points and Awards
You can receive points by helping the Vamps.
There are no set missions or assignments. We will suggest ideas under HOW TO HELP on the community page but you can help in any way you like and that is fun.
You can submit a monthly report about what you are doing and will receive 10 points but only once a month. The band will see your reports and may occasionally award bonus points. If you belong to teams and the leader submits a monthly report, every team member will receive 3 points – as well as any bonus points.
You can redeem points for awards such as free band t-shirts (just pay pick and pack), phone calls from the band, tickets and meet n greets- and shop discounts.
Click on a room and you can read posts and add your own post.
You can also upload a photo to that room. As new photos are added over room capacity, older photos will be deleted.
Posts to a room also feed into the general community chatter.
You can see a members profile by clicking on them wherever you see them name – in the member list, Activity Feed, teams, etc.
To search for a member, go to Member Lists. Names are the same as in Facebook. Search for people you know by name. You can also search by location – and sort the search by alphabetical, points or number of followers.
Teams are a way members you join together to help The Vamps or just be a sub-group in the community.
You can join up to 3 teams. To join, go to the team profile and submit a ‘join request’ to the team leader. You will get a notification if you are accepted and your teams will be listed on your profile.
If you are 16, you can form ONE team (which counts as 1 of the 3 teams you can belong to). Just click FORM TEAM on the team page and you will name it, write a team description and location. You will administer the team and be the one who accepts members and can delete posts from the team wall.
As team leader, you are also the only one who can submit a monthly report on what the team is doing. Everyone in the team will receive points for the report as well as any bonus points.
To consider teams you join, you can search/find teams by name or by location. You can browse thru teams and see a description, who the team leader is, the location, how many members and see a list of members and messages on the team wall.
You can see your profile summary at the top left of the Community page.
You can edit your profile, change info or photo by clicking EDIT PROFILE. You can set your profile to private in which cases only members you follow will be able to see your full page or send you messages.
You can report on things you do to promote the The Vamps on the monthly report form which goes to the band and managers. Click on the Report Form prompt on the Community Page. You will see you receive points and possible bonus points but only for 1 report in any month.
