Suggestion: buy points.

Post by -MiSHmaSH- on August 31st 2013, 6:35 pm

Hello,
In some forums points are money.
How about buying points? With SMS, credit cards? This is chance to earn money for foruotion, and it's users, like forum user buy 60 points, 50 % or more get user and 50% get forumotion.
My second idea is option for topics what cost some points. Like user make topic for 10 coints (points).

I voted no because some forums have enable the option to earn points for every day passed a users regerstation date!
As well as the fact that users can earn points for posting in areas, opening topics, Creating topics, And much more!
some forums even hold contests to earn points!
some forums go as far as using the Donation feature to Buy points.
like some one donates 3 dollars and they earn 75points!
but now what your saying is that if i want to but 75 points for lets say 3 dollars then the site i buy them from earns $1.50 and fourmotion gets $1.50! that seems like over kill to me!
Now fourmotion earns money when a founder of a forum Buys credits for use on their forum!

Edit:

then what does a user do when he spends $100.00 buying points the is banned and he (the user) thinks the ban was un fair and has all those unspent points? does he get a refund? is he entitled for a refund?

Points and real money do not go together. Points are just a little reward for active members who like to participate. Also it would be a headache when members start wanting refunds.

What do you mean?
Paying points top open a topic?
OR getting paid for opening topics?

I vote no.

Users can buy credits, and I give for that premium rank or points, and for this I think it is bad idea.
Sorry
