The Pantheon of Gratitude is for all of those who helped to make Godville a better game. Many thanks to everyone already listed here and to the ones who are yet planning to appear.

It was one of the earliest Pantheons introduced to the game, announced in the second ever Developer's blog, in May 2010.[1]

Gods and goddesses are ranked here according to a points system which tracks the contributions they've made to the game. For each contribution they will gain gratitude points, which are gained from bug reporting, correction suggestions, idea suggestions being voted for in the Ideabox and other more special things. Gratitude points may take a while to update because they must be added by administrators, and the Pantheon only refreshes twice per day, at 08:30 and 20:30 UTC.

Types of Contributions

Different types of contributions will count for different numbers of gratitude points.

Type Description How to claim Point value
Bug report Reports of an in-game bug or glitch which can then be fixed by the developers. Submit an idea via the Ideabox for the 'bug report' category. It cannot be voted on and will be looked at by an administrator only. 1
Special Feature Suggestion Suggestions of new ideas to feature in the game that are larger than most other ideas. Submit an idea via the Ideabox for the 'awesome idea' or 'other' category. It cannot be voted on and will be looked at by an administrator only. 1
Idea Suggestion Suggestions of new ideas to feature in the game including new game mechanics, diary phrases, etc. Submit an idea via the Ideabox and have it added to the game. 1

Use of Gratitude Points

  • In the game's early days, players who are high in the pantheon of gratitude occasionally receive benefits from administrators. It is unknown exactly how often these events would occur. Usually, players near the top of the pantheon received a few Invites to Godville, dependant on position (higher players gained more) but usually one or two.
  • More Gratitude points used to mean an increased Idea Submission Quota in the Ideabox, but as of the introduction of the Enhancement room in November 2011[3], IQ points are now used for this.
  • The gratitude points serve as an easy guide for administrators and players to the most helpful players.

However, players have reported that when the usual correction form cannot be used, submitting a "Bug" or "Other" may be accepted: Godville Blog, post 1601: 1222226
