    I had a idea of somthing that could be added.

    With each post a user made, he would gain some lumber and some gold. And with every reasors he submits, he gains exp like heros do in wc.

    To make it so people dont just spam posts, there would be a max amount of resorses you could get in a amount of time. ( If you made 5 posts in 30 mins, for a example, then every post after that woukld give less and less and less..untill it gave nothing)

    Then, there would be shops were, if you had enough resorses, you could buy items. Really goo items might cost exp and maybe even rep, and weaker items would cost gold and lumber. What the items do and how much they cost, ect, would be up to ralle but you can give suggestions.

    EDIT: Poll didnt work becaus the site logged me out in the middle of posting it....if a mod could add one I would like it.

    CREDITS TO NEARBYHERMIT FOR ASKING FOR CREDITS. ( :at: )

    I think the forum is nice how it is now.

    You can't buy reputation, you must earn from from the community
    and were do you need the items for?

    I never said buy rep...
    Items would do differnt things, they would be all the same, so unless you misspoke, you use them "everwhere"...

    Yup. That was going to be one of the options in the poll.

    It might be a good idea, it all depends on what those items would do.

    And 5 posts in 30 minutes is not a lot, putting an restriction like that on would be stupid.

    Yeah, I know it would be stupid. I was giveing a example, we wouldnt set it to that amount.

    If you have any ideas for items, post them! the only one I had is a colored name in chat (maybe not forever, but for a few days) But there is a reason why only mods have colors, so if it was going to be added at all, it would have to cost alot of exp,gold,and lumber.

    No it wasnt...Remember I was showing you the site and we started talking about it. But ok, I gave you credits now anyways.
    Only some items could do that I suppose. Not all fo them though,lol.

    Yeah, I kinda agree, rep should probably stay out of it.

    Rep is how well know and liked. Would it make wolverabid less wellknown and liked if he used all his rep on items? Of course not! Everybody would still like him and know who he is! So...It would be kind of dumb to use how much people like you as money.

    Of course, he could get the items without buying them becaus hes a mod.

    BUT, I suppose some really good items could cost 10 rep as well as other things.

    You would need to come up with some more original ideas than just "colored names" for these items to buy.

    It is your idea, not mine, if you want anyone to like it you need to make it appealing.

    Pointless and a waste of server recources, I am sure that all the admins and global mods would agree with me that although such a system may be fun, it will be a waste of time to code and encourage spamming.
