What are Buttons?

How to get buttons?

The primary way to earn buttons is by reviewing icon and cursor sets in the gallery. There is a daily limit of six buttons per day and the difficulty of getting each successive button in a day increases. Buttons are only given to people, who follow the reviewing guidelines.

Another way to obtain buttons is by playing Cosmic Journey. You'll get buttons the first time you beat a stage and each time you get in the top-ten table.

You can get buttons from Items sold by Scunkie, too.

You get a button each time you get a high score on 15 Puzzle. Also you get a button each time you solve the puzzle in less than 100 moves.
You can pick buttons from a Potted Button Pom once every 24 to 48 hours. You must pick it manually though.

What NOT to do

Be aware that leaving low quality or always the same reviews will result in no buttons. Even if you manage to outwit the automated checks, buttons will be taken away by the administrators later. In that case, your account will be limited and you will not be able to receive any more buttons.

Creating extra accounts for the sole purpose of obtaining more buttons per day is not allowed. Disregarding this rule will result in confiscation of all your workshop items, merging all your accounts and limiting them (see above).
