    That wouldn't be a good idea, it would turn into a SPAM fest in here.

    Agreed with CAJoker.

    By the way, Dr Kupo: Try to be at least constructive with your criticism. "No. That's lame" isn't anywhere near as good as "That wouldn't be a good idea, it would turn into a SPAM fest in here."

    Also agreed with CAJoker.
    Adding this sort of feature would definitely cause a rise in spam to gain the credit, and would add a 'cheesy' feel to the forum, unfortunately.

    And what do you mean by "kewl stuff"? Actual merchandise? Goods? What?

    Its not worth the work. Someone would still have to look at the spam.

    Weasley: No. We have ONE thing already based on postcount (member titles change, and you get a custom title at 500) and we had LOTS of spam just to get to the next level.

    Anything based on postcount is automatically a flag for spamming, which is nonconstructive.

    What else could we base "credit" on? We can't track number of votes on polls (which is the only possible alternative I can think of -- and even then we've got polls like The Official Graphics Competitions, which don't use standard polls). All that's left is credit for good points, handed down by moderators -- and this instantly adds disparity to the boards in the form of favoritism and jealosy.

    Keep all this in mind.
