Hey everyone.  I've been looking around at different modifications I can add to the board and there is one that will allow a bunch of new options / things you can do with points.  The thing is... if I implement this I will have to reset your points to 0.  Also.. if I do this I'm going to price things so 100 points is a lot of points.  Is this something you all would like?  Or do you like the current system where everyone has 214895744574801933 points and nothing to do with them really.  

Things that can happen with the new system:
--- Challenge System:  See that "CHALLENGE" link up top?  It can point to some silly challenge page where people can make challenges for each other (things like guess what blurred images / video clips are - predict who will win super bowl / trivia / etc) - cost (x) points to play and can win a (y) points if you answer correctly.  Admin/mods approve these as they are made.  Admin/mods can also make their own challenges that are worth more points.
--- Change Own Display Name
--- Change Own Avatar
--- Change Own User Title
--- Change OTHERS Member Title
--- Lotto ON/OFF - Cost of tickets - Limit Tickets per Day - Base Jackpot (goes up if nobody wins)
--- Change Other Member's Avatar
--- Name Effect (I can set a user color or bold or something to a certain amount of points)
--- Add to Post Count

and some other things.  I would write up a page that explain everything.

So is it something you are all interested in?  Or is it a who cares leave things how they are type of thing?

Let me know.

    does it depress you, to know just how alone you really are?

idk. some of that would be cool (i like the challenge idea) but a lot of it seems kinda like overkill (increase post count? change other members avatar?).

For things like change another persons avatar..  that would cost a lot of points.  Say...  100.  But to change your own avatar would be like 5 points.  That way.. if someone changes your avatar for a laugh.. then all you need is 5 points to change it back.

Same with user titles.  Something like 50 to change someone elses and 5 to change your own.

haven't really decided yet.  def from the challenge system though

If from posting.. then I'm thinking more along the lines of maybe just from posting in the circa section.. or in serious topics.  Not in off topic.  Only because I don't want people spamming for points.  I want people to maybe be able to buy things like an autographed circa CD or something of that nature with their points (if they want).  I really want them to mean something other than just... points.

i voted i dont care before i read the stuff, but i think its a good idea, the way the points are now is pretty useless, i mean its fun to change someones title everyonce in awhile, but doing some of the things mike listed would make them a valuable commodity and add some fun/strategy to the whole thing

I change my mind, I think this would be cool.
The add to your post count thing is pretty gay though.

I'm down but i'd like to know when it's happening so i can actually USE all my points

also.. I'd like points for off topic posting, because that's where all the real users post, the circa section is filled with a bunch of n00bs that post once or twice after a show and are never heard from again, i generally only read the circa section

I think that you should leave the amount of point/point value the same.

But those ideas sound good.
