Default PE2K shop?

Hiya. My names Patricio. I used to be really active on this forum around this time last year and it's great. I've been to a few forums however and noticed something. Well, some of the forums had the same layout, I mean who could blame them, and they had an extra cool feature which I thought might spark an idea or two here, what with the new changes.

They had a system of "credits" or forum currency. These credits were obtained by posting. They were solely used in the shop and the shop had a few trinkets and whatnot. Some of the choices were username changes, increased pm box, username color change, userbar addition.

I don't know the exact science of how the credits were calculated with posts but it balanced out well. I thought this might seem as a nice idea and it could promote more activity.

So yeah. If you wouldn't mind giving some thoughts on the idea for the site, that'd be cool.

I think this sounds cool, and I'm no computer programmer or anything, but I have a feeling that a LOT of work goes into that kind of thing... If we adopted this on-site, I think it's be awesome, but I doubt it will.

If it can be done, PE2K Staff, I highly recommend you do this. You want activity to go up? This is the best idea I have heard thus far.

I highly emphasize the word "if," so if it cannot be done, I don't want any flack for pushing it, 'kay?

If it can be done, and you don't want to do it, just don't respond and let this blow over.

At the moment, I have no idea whether this can be done or not, actually. We were thinking about something similar, but it never precipitated because nobody knew what to do and how to do it.

I have been on a forum that had something similar to what you're talking about. So I know it's something that can be done for sure. I'm just not sure if we gave the resources or man power to implement something like that on here.

It'll bring up activity, but I think it's also likely to bring spamming and pointless posts up by a heap.

On that note,

Have you guys considered a Spam section? In this section, you'd get no post count, and no credits. I've seen multiple forums have this. Rules would apply to, ya know, no "bad" stuff.

A spam section has been shot down numerous times in the past because it would make the forum look too messy, and therefore more unappealing.

Even if one was implemented, it wouldn't stop people spamming for prizes, because they wouldn't spam there as there's nothing to gain from it.

I've never seen the point of a spam section. It's just like "HERPADERP im gna post in 1337 tlk cos i can lololol'. Pointless.

I like the shop idea, though, and most of the spambots are new accounts with no intention on staying, so the shop doesn't affect them. Human-made spam can be dealth with accordingly.

I see what you mean about the Spam section, but posting worthless posts. I mean, that would probably be the only risk. But then again, the genuine members are the ones who would find this appealing, and afterall they're the ones who make the meaningful posts.

I think that there may be a few more spammers, but the only way to get the items in the shop would be to make well-written, on topic posts.

What I mean is, the spammers won't be here long to receive any prizes, as they'll be banned. The members who've been here for years will. And because of their commitment to the forum, things won't really change in the quality of posting.

Sorry if I made no sense, I just woke up and haven't showered or anything.

Thanks for the support! ;D Maybe if we can get enough supporters and if this idea can become a reality, it'd surely benefit the forum and more activity would rise about.

Oooo aaa I know this one!! :D

What Puh-tree-cee-oh's is describing is a Vbulletin addon

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=210236

This one would probably come somewhat close to it. Anyway these vbulletin add's can be modified if one knows coding. So if we add that addon to the forum we can use currency/money and I'm sure these "items" can be added into the addon with some editing, unless it's already a part of it. :)

Anyway what really is standing in the way of this idea happening is that Ryan, the admin, isn't active and he's the only one that has FTP access.

So this is doable, but only if Ryan does it.

That's the exact one. Let's just hope Ryan comes on coincidentally soon. I'm more then positive that this would be nothing short of an activity booster to the site.

You rock dude. =]
