Idea! : Vitural Currency!

  • #1 ✎ 88 Jacklack3 Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies Day Person I like the warm sunshine and wake up early! Express Yourself Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies I feel it would be cool to have vitrual currency! You would get it in these ways. -Be helpful to other members 1 coin -Every 5 votes you get gives you 1 coin -Everytime you post a helpful thread thats long and not just spam, you get 3 coins -Receiving coins! -and other stuff the staff can think of. And so we could uses these coins for project keys, maybe features, and themes! (themes would be cool!) Posted

Hobbies Things like this can be fun, but I don't want to block ANY content behind ANY kind of wall. We don't have a lot of content to begin with, and blocking anything feels wrong. So the currency would be useless beyond "look at my internet points" (which I don't agree with). Posted
  • #3 ✎ 222 Lacks :( I like this idea. If it was used as a tip jar that couldn't be spent it would be ideal for seeing who helpful and prolific users are But, like random is getting at, it will just end up being another tool to measure your e-penis against others.... Posted Edited by Lacks

    Well it would be the publishers choice to set the price, zero would be free. But i guess you do have a point.

    If what your saying is that you would basically just give coins and thats it im fine with that.

Hobbies The only thing I'd be willing to do with points is a reputation system. Even though this is still internet points, it might help drive better answers (as people will want the higher reputation). Basically stuff like getting upvotes on your program, getting likes on forum posts (maybe), and other things would add to your reputation. I don't like internet points, but I understand that they can be helpful. If people want a point system, I can add one, but it's not one of my priorities right now. I'm sorry. Posted
  • #6 ✎ 222 Lacks Is this why you can't see how many posts people have and etc? Because they are just a form of Internet points? I feel like we could have tags or titles for people that help answer questions and earn a reputation for it. (as well as ogiri winners) I would suggest a nomination thread, but again this feels a little dick swingey to me... Its a hard line to walk... And yes, Boxy, that's exactly what I was going for.

    I think tags for people would be tags everyone could get. I didn't get a chance to get early for the origi games so it would be kinda sad to see members who won everyday making me feel sad. It would be good to have "Helper" and "Newcomer and "Staff" tags as everyone can reach them at some point if they choose to...
