    I like the idea of a rewards system for using the forums more. I may be a bit more active if the rewards are nice :)

    LW001 has some nice ideas for the credit system, which were : -
    1. Some competitive aspect to it. By that I mean making something like entering a raffle by paying a few credits and having a random winner get them all or something like that.
    2. Fix the statistics page or remove it. It's the same as clicking on the Credits text itself but everything's in tiny scrollbar divider boxes.
    3. Removing the poorest members thing on the credits page. It will just randomly feature inactive members.
    4. Allow for purchasing of *drumroll* clickable links in chat *large moans of audience* for a ton of credits. That'll allow people like me to link people to something when they need help, e.g. a support article or one of my guides. Because currently you can post a juicy support article in chat that someone would need to copy and paste in their URL bar. Ain't nobody gonna do that.
    5. Some frames around your profile picture that look cool, you could buy and that make you look like the rich shmuck you are.
    6. Changing the Credit: ... to Credits: ... on top of the page
    7. Allow for unlocking access to the full list of chat and forum emotes with our favorites Ninja Georgie and Koala. If ya pay.
    8. Give a set amount of credits to someone once they get MOTM.
    9. Bring back the rewards for viewing forums.

    The only downside to this I can see is that it kind of promotes spam, hopefully the system won't get abused.

    If you see someone spamming, there's a button for it. From what I've heard Staff will remove credits for spam.

    You mean the credit system or moderators removing points due to spam - both work

    I really like the credit system :) I can see it being really fun and giving ways for the community to put worth into things like their artwork and creations (mainly talking about the ability to sell art for the credits) It would be nice to see some form of advertisement added to the rewards system that maybe helps the content creator get more views overall with the help of freedom endorsing the content. Similar to if you look at damnlag.com they do a premium advertisement option that helps even more compared to their regular advertisement to help others grow but over all a ton of cosmetic options would be really nice. Id like to deck out my profile and make it look nicer and i'm sure a ton of others would like to also.

    CHALLENGE TIME!

    I will be watching the statistic total regularly (in my usual hours)
    Whoever (Including Forum Team, excluding me) can reach 1,000 Credits first will be granted:

    +250
    2nd and 3rd to reach this milestone will share:
    +100(50₡ each)

    Rules:

    1) You must follow the Forum Rules, anybody spamming or abusing this system will have their credits deducted and/or receive a warning point.
    2) Casual transfers are allowed, asking for transfers to boost your chances will exempt you from winning this challenge.
    3) Use common sense.

    Good Luck!

    I'm excited to see how the credits system will spice things up! A definite bonus is that I know we have #FreedomFamily who have great advice to give and will be very helpful, but maybe are usually shy - this could be the perfect nudge to help encourage them to share more! :)
