Default Fourm Money

Have you ever think about creating forum money?

You can get it several different ways (posting, creating new thread, relpying, creating a hot thread).

And you can buy things for your username, you can change it without asking you. Or make it look better.

They have it on GHPF. It's a fun system, but I think there's enough extras on these forums.

A money system is a bad idea IMHO. Such a thing could end up starting a lot of online fights, spamers 'selling' the money, people hacking to try to get more...Not that I'm saying many of the members here would do such things, but with money real or not for any reason, comes the element of greed in we humans . Let's keep PE2K free of that, okay? Please ?

I mean as a simple purpose to make usernames look better.
Also some benefits like change title to something else (certain words are restricted) or change usernames to something else without asking. There is no donating so the only way to get is being active.

Eh, I wouldn't recommend it. It becomes a mess from what I've seen from another VBulletin forum I used to go to. Names are all different colors, some bold and/or italic or underlined with all sorts of other weird stuff going on. And you begin to lose track of who's a moderator and who isn't, especially if you allow custom titles.

It's really nothing speical anyway...

On GHPF, there's still no shop. Nobody exchanges money, so the only way to get money is from bank interest. I have 20,946,144 and still nothing to spend it on (Gengar's lazy).

In one sense, we already have a sort of forum money: the URPG. Of course, this is usually just for the URPG and anything related, but it has come in handy at times, but only because the rpg system is based around a money system, the forum is not.

It's a nice suggestion, but I don't think it fits within our community.

It would be a very bad idea in a forum with alot of people like this one. There'll be so many people using the system. I think that money system can only be put on Invisionfree forums. That's where I found most of them...I wouldn't like forum money in this forum. It'd create chaos

If anyone here has ever been a part of Gaia Online, then the answer should be obvious...money is a bad, bad idea. Spam would get out of control, forum ethics would get out of control, n00bs would get out of control, and the only people who would suffer for it would be the good members and the mods. When I was on Gaia, they had dozens, if not hundreds of mods, and it still took weeks for complaints to be processed and dealt with due to the general n00biness of the members, IMO caused by the money factor (altho Gaia is generally a broken mess to begin with).

Yeah, I don't think money would work, especially with usernames. It's an incentive to SPAM and it's not a massive benefit anyway. Besides, we don't need money, this forum's good enough without it. =P

Since my question has been answered I like this thread closed. It is getting off topic.
