Why is the points system being deleted?
 
Why.

And which features, we could buy earlier will be gone in a while?

Point system is going, as it has been misused and out lived it's time. It is being replaced with a new kind of store though.

And again, many of the features have gone due to certain people misusing them. ;)

Semicolon 07-08-2003 03:53 PM

I heard that some of the stuff you can buy now will be available free with the new system..

James Isaac 07-08-2003 04:28 PM

I liked the points system...

It gave a reason to get people posting.

And what features will we still have, and what will be new?

-=ReApEr=- 07-08-2003 04:28 PM

That is correct, for example sig images will be avalible to everyone. :)

Well i think it's a good thing that the point system is on its way out. I think the [only] reason to get people posting should be to have a good discussion and to bring interesting ideas to a topic. I think it's really stupid to want to be the top poster, simply to be the top poster.... I'd rather have 300 posts but everyone thinking i always bring good points, than having 3000 spammish posts.

note: i'm not saying here that people with high post counts are spammers, not all of them.

It's being deleted? *Does happy dance* I never liked it from the start.

-=ReApEr=- 07-09-2003 04:12 AM

Sure you didn't. ;)

Interesting AV and Sig....

Echuu Shen-Jon 07-09-2003 09:00 AM

Coupes said it. I will also continue to post, it's not that. I just asked why it's deleted!

Oh, and James: You can't use your av and sig. The maximum allowed is av: 70x70 and sig image 500x80!

Semicolon 07-09-2003 09:02 AM

Yeah I enjoy posting...Loosing the point system won't affect me at all.

The point system is being removed for several reasons.

It isn't generally accepted.
It creates a lot of spam.
It creates a hostile environment.

Ray Jones 07-09-2003 09:36 AM

Yeah, but if everyone is able to get a sig pic ..

1. from start on .. it will cause much more traffic, beside of all the XXX-pics the newbies will send .. So have fun you admins and mods with handle it then.

2. depended from the posts count, it will cause spams again.
(also for anything that will be available at a number of posts)
So keep on having fun as it is all you admins and mods.




some people cant just let it flow.

everybody's greedy if someone has more points and can do this and this. Yeah. What about wait some time, and the be able to do it too? Crap.


So it isnt the pointsystem.. YOU DAMN PEOPLE IS IT. YOU CANT BEHAVE, i say.

Plus it seems that Admins had almost their 19th nervous breakdown. Because of some one cut some custom titles ..

Semicolon 07-09-2003 10:09 AM

Ehhh....I don't think anyone will be uploading any porn pics....

SPAM will always be an issue, it can't fully ever go away...

Ray Jones 07-09-2003 10:35 AM

OK ill use ### instead XXX because .. it just was meant as placeholder..


;)

Semicolon 07-09-2003 12:11 PM

OH! LOL...Oops...

Ahh... Oh well... I'll just cut down my av. (because it is only 5 pixels too big, and there is that much space at the edge) and I will cut down and scale down my sig. image.

I'm not saying that the points system made me want to spam. It made me want to stay on the forums over time. If there was not points system, then more people will probably only stay for a week or so, then leave. The points system gave them a reason to stay.



And also, how will we get a username when the system goes? Will it be free? And what about a custom title?

The Cheat 07-09-2003 05:54 PM

i dont need the point system because that is not what kept me at the forums, it was the people that kept me here

RoxStar 07-11-2003 02:34 PM

Will we still be able to get Custom Titles with the new system?

Echuu Shen-Jon 07-11-2003 03:12 PM

It has always been possible to do that without points :rolleyes: Just achieve 1000 points.

You mean, posts, not points. Don't be so mean to the new people.

STTCT 07-11-2003 07:48 PM

*gets kicked


Yes be nice to the newbs. Nobody besides the higher people know what is really going to happen. The rest is just us guessing. :cool:
