Here is another way to give reason to donate besides the coins. Since the point of alliances right now is to request and get needed DNA to build good dino’s but I find it hard to donate DNA I plan on using.
Add a DNA reward for any dino on our request list for donating DNA. So say I need tons and tons of raptor DNA. So I would select the raptor off my list as rewarded DNA for donating. So with the raptor as my reward, every time I hit the donate to another member, I get 5 raptor DNA. So if I fulfill the 5 donations to one person, I would get 25 raptor DNA.
Lets say I need Kaprosuchus DNA which is a rare. I would select Kaprasuchus as my reward. I would get 1 DNA for every time I hit the donate button for rare dino’s.
The point is that this would encourage donating activity and get me to give up more good DNA to get some even more wanted DNA. Not only would requests get more DNA, but there would be more requests and more trade happening all around.
The down side of this would be some alliance leaders will be watching for inactive members and kicking them to add active people so there are more people to request and donate to help each other… or themselves personally but, hey, that is human nature.
