Twitch and Pinterest Missions

Lately, I have been working on one of my side projects:  Sites with Benefits.  SwB is a promotion and giveaway system.  I've used it for a number of contests.  Basically, your readers can do missions, earn points, and buy rewards.  You can see the widget on the right side of the screen.  I've recently added two new kinds of missions.

Twitch.  This mission allows you to reward your users for following a given twitch channel.  They go to the channel, follow it, and then enter their username in the widget.

Pinterest. I'm not a Pinterest user, but it seems like it is a popular service.  So over the weekend I spent some time and made a mission for it.  The reader pins a specified link/image, then enters their username in the widget.  SwB should find the pin and reward the reader.

I have several missions on the drawing board right now.  They include charity and newsletter based missions.  There are some technical hurdles I'll need to overcome first though.

In the mean time, I'll need to get another contest going soon.  Hmm, what game to do one for...
