MEKHousing has been a successful long term program and we want to keep it running as long as possible. It’s running for 31 weeks, being 19 of them exclusively fund by me. After that, i create a new program for sponsorship, that got a good funding for the program, but not enough. So i applied also to Plato Foundation to get financial support since this program improves the players game experience.
It has been financiated for the last 12 weeks with a Plato Foundation grant being the last 3 with a grant of 140 GOLDper week. (read more
Why this program is special and needs to keep being funded?
1 - It generates a great interaction between players, when they need to ask for MEKHABS to rise the needed amount for the house(s);
2 - This generates a sense of community and sharing, and brings players to have more interest for the game;
3 - It’s a program for all, since with only 500 kills per week allows to get one mekhab, and people may ask for the usual donators for other mekhabs - all players could benefit of houses even if they are new citizens;
4 - With the earned houses they will have a win win cycle: more energy, allows to have more kills, more kills means more mekhabs, more mekhabs, means more energy…;
5 - This also improves the game interest in addiction with the social / community sense;
6 - Besides that, MEKHousing program is linked also with other MEK MU programs (yes we have several) that if players join them will have some extra mekhabs and got more economic benefits.
Some numbers for the social interaction since the beginning of the program:
Number of MEKHab donators: 59 players
Number of players that exchange MEKHabs for Houses: 26 players
Number of effective contacts for Mekhabs transactions: 433 conversations between players (in this number missies the conversations with failed transactions)

Future program improvements
As a long term program, it had been adjusted before the submission to Plato Funding and its quite stable by now.
Besides this, players sometimes asked for changes and one of them is to introduce q5 house. Since the program objectives are not to do giveaways, i think it’s not a option to follow. We are asking players and plato board for ideas for improve the program. They could be changing the mekhabs earning levels or the required amount per house.
Since the program is deficitary all reductions in the funding could compromise the program.
A quick feedback about the board
As it was summer time and lots of people were in holidays, it was not easy to get the feedback about the weekly reports submission. Even in the Plato Foundation Discord channel no one answered me, or at least told ‘we got it’ or we ‘read it’. I understand this since the Mekhousing program had the same problem: less people playing this month.
A good idea could be the existence of a formulary to be filled with the article related to the reports. The players from the board that i contact by message were always cordial and explain all i need.
