Shiny Sun Point

From YPPedia

In September 2012, Apollo began periodically running Shiny Sun Point Events, Doodle-like events that included Shiny Sun Points as prizes. Once a player has accumulated enough points, they can be traded in for various prizes.

See the Shiny Sun Point forum thread for the list of prizes the points can be traded for, as well as the current number of points held by each winner.

Following the announcement of Apollo's retirement in June 2015, other Ocean Masters began running Shiny Sun Point events, with Clotho taking over the administrative tasks.
