    As an add-on, I would kinda explain what happenes after you click. Ex. Clicking on the gift.

    Rep doesn't increase until you hit lord status at about 1500 posts, I think.
    So it's only +1 rep, not +3.

    So what will you do when they call your name and you're not ready to go?
    Everyone will stare at you and tell you what you know
    That you're in too deep and you can't quite keep your secrets, one and all
    We might just make it after all, on our own
