Cash Mod - Money for your forum

Post by Simsarmy on November 10th 2007, 9:55 am

Please post yes/no and explain why.

BEFORE POSTING PLEASE READ THIS: http://help.forumotion.com/suggestions-for-your-forums-f30/cash-mod-money-for-your-forum-t8466-90.htm#47488

The idea

Now, this hasn't been brought up for a while (Yes, I know how to use the search feature), and I want to bring it back up.
In the past the Admins claimed that adding a Cash Mod to the Forumotion database would be a difficult task. I find this quite perplexing, unless they were attempting to create a intricate Mod then I see no problem. I would request that a very basic Cash Mod is installed that increases every post and only the Admin's can edit the value. Of course this would be of great benefit in my forum.

On the other hand, I would also like to bring the idea of a advanced Cash Mod back onto the plate, since no one has brought that up either, and the Techies might have just forgotten about it. One where members can use their cash to buy "items" that will simply appear in their mini profile, these could be formatted as [img] tags.

French Suggestion:


Simple Mod

- Cash increasing per post.
- Admins have ability to modify cash.
- Cash can be transferred to other members.



Advanced Mod

- Features of Simple Mod
- Shop that lets you buy items that appear as,
- [img] Tags in mini profile. Which you can set.
- Shop also lets you set the amount of time a item refreshes. 0 for infinate.
- Currency (Can set diffrent types of cash)
- Rarity
- Untransferable items.
- Lottery (Can be enabled)

Then I apologize.
In my forum for example, I use Cash as a incentive to enter contests, or to complement my Clan system.
I also want to use the Cash system to make my members pay each other for good deeds, like create signatures.
It's used freqently in forums to make the members "want" to post.

It's a popular Mod that should not be ignored.

Dispite the fact many people have voted for a Advanced Cash Mod, I think that a Simple Cash Mod should be introuduced anyway. It would really help me out on my own forum, and I am sure plenty of people would benfit.

Like I said, a Simple Cash Mod being:
- Cash increasing per post.
- Admins have ability to modify cash.
- Cash can be transferred to other members.

Nothing too hard.

I found something with the basic idea, even though I realize that it would need to be intergrated into the Forumotion database:

Hi, please wait, when someone with the answer passes, I'm sure he/she'll post it

Meanwhile, may I remind that double posting isn't tolerated unless seperated by 24 hours Wink

that's a great idea, i really need this option
but... many users post where is... easy to post (copy&paste), like in my "links" section, so... if this ... "Cash mod" or how are you naming it, will be available, maybe you can make in such a way that you can tick the sections where you can receive cash
if this is too hard,then i'm sorry, it was just a suggestion

i really want this option

That would probally come under a Advanced Cash Mod, but if the techincans did my simple mod, you should simply enforce no spamming rules connected with posting to get cash!

If anyone want's to know how I created my own Temp Cash mod for my own forum, look here: http://forumcloud.forumotion.com/financing-f27/bank-here-is-where-you-can-control-your-cash-t52.htm
It might help you make up your mind.
I am using the Character sheet at the moment, I placed a Cash Field and I edit every time someone posts in the bank topic. Obviously this is hard work, and I will LOVE the Techies if they added a automated system.

I have mixed feelings on the cash mod, it does encourage members to post more, if they have things to spend it on, but it can also create competition between members. I think for the likes of RPG forums it would certainly be a good thing and an advanced automated system.

I think this cash mod is a great idea, forum hosters like phpbb88 use them, and they are the best in making your forum better.

Think of it though that the cash mod isn't a very stable mod, when I had a forum on phpbb88, I usually saw a cash mod malfunction every week.
