The Game Modding Community - Since 2001

Award Points for Posts in the Threads Section

An Idea

It used to be the case and I think it would be interesting to see it back as such a feature appears like source of motivation for members to post in the forums which would bring more activity in this section and in the community as a whole.

Of course, there would be a very little risk of spam but still, bringing some life in this particular section of the website would be a real benefit.
As for the spam issue, I'm sure our mods will have to problem handling it.

    Every time I see a suggestion or idea regarding points, or what should and shouldn't yield points to a user, it kinda comes back to the whole ideal I have that points do fuckall and are nothing but fodder to buy unlocks with. 

    If you post to "get paid" you're obviously doing it for the wrong reason. Even though that isn't your intent with this idea, someone out there is going to attempt to capitalize on it, and spam will ensue. Why? Because its simply human nature. Especially in teens.

    at the time of this post I have 10,244 points, ranked 406th in something or other, and I could care less. Yet my medals force me to earn around 17 points for checking in daily, which I habitually do, I like seeing whats new.

    I post because I have something to say, or [hopefully] contribute to the community in some way.

    I mean all help threads. There are help threads in game sections too. For example if someone asked how to add bots in cs and you gave him the solution, you would get points for it. I think it is fair.

    Of course he could donate you points if he wanted, but I'm answering based on your suggestion.
    Maybe we should question the reasons for this feature to be abandoned in the first place also

    In my opinion it would be a good idea if posts in help threads gave points. Specifically the post that gives the solution.

    As for activity, I don't think that more is necessarily better. People will probably spam the ' game threads ' and such.

    then only the GB section (community) may be concerned
