So i would like to be able to add a buy and sell marketplace to my forum where members can buy and sell items, they would use their forum points earned to buy things, but i would like my member to be able to transfer those points between themselves and not have to rely on an admin or mod to add and deduct points via admin, so it would look like this

In some ways it may be easier on the admin's or mod's if the members would do it themselves. However, if members were allowed to transfer points between themselves then you could end up with members who 'steal' points for themselves and that would create a lot of chaos. The way it's set up right now, admin or someone with access to the admin panel has to do it so that eliminates members from 'stealing' points from one another but it does create a lot of work for the admin to have to do. It depends on which you'd rather deal with.....doing it yourself or warning/suspending/banning/etc. someone for stealing.

I voted 'no' because I foresee too many problems with members transferring points themselves. One member could 'sell' another member something they didn't want and just take the points from them without asking or a member could just take another members' points for nothing. If it were me, I'd rather just transfer the points myself then dealing with members arguing over who stole who's points.

As an admin myself, I could just take all the points from each member I have and give them to myself. However, I don't do it because I know it isn't right. Just because I have the power to do it doesn't mean I should do it.

If members were to have access to other members' points like I do, then other people can take points whenever they like without asking.
