New System to increase motivation!


Hey everybody!

I have implemented a new system on the site. It is a "point" system.

I'm going to write a quick summary for now, as I'm a bit busy. But here's a quick rundown.

You make a new thread = .02 points
You make a new reply = .01 points
Refer somebody = .5 points
What's the idea behind this?

To increase motivation to post. You can spend points on various things in the estore.

The points you make will be worth REAL MONEY Woah, you think i'm crazy? No. You make enough points and you'll be able to buy REAL ITEMS.

For example:
Writer's Beat Notebook
Writer's Beat Sweater
Etc...

You'll also be rewarded points for contests.

I encourage everyone to use the reputation system along with the points. You gain points for recieving good reputation.

The end goal is to create an actual point system economy for this forum. Meaning eventually, you can even sell eachother books and other items related to writing .

Let me know what you all think.

Thanks,
Daniel

Free food? I'm there! Wait...you don't sell food?

Well I'm outta here, then!

That is very generous of you. I would give you a hug as well, or perhaps a cookie. Anyways, here's a random emoticon. (hopefully...)

Of course it existed nowhere else but here first. Otherwise, I couldn't have started it, silly!

I want to stress how much points will be worth something.

As much as how much you get for BRINGING people in.


Go go go!

I have a question that may be amswered somewhere but I havent noticed it, how many points does it take to buy stuff? it may be a good thing to have up somewhere. incentive..

(oh and to make you feel better I intend to buy a note book, maybe even a mug! they made me giggle..I have no idea why)

I could setup a donation system.

In fact.. I'll work out some details so that IF someone does donate they can get like... bigger avatars and such.

I'll try to work it out tonight.

just a little symbol and some points or something could do it.. bigger avatar could be a little annoying to the system.. distorting threads or something. I know what I mean but I don't think you will..

Right now it's at 80x80 for regular members.

If I make it at 50x50 for new members, 80x80 for regular members, and 100x100 for donators, it would look fine.

Maybe more signature space as it goes up, free color / title changes, etc.
