Currency Mod

I just thought that AC might want to add a currency mod to the forums in the future... possibly animecrave points and users could charge for signatures and avatars. Maybe do some other things with the currency like buy some text effects for posts.

thats a good suggestion actually. I have used a forum with such a forum and they have a currency barter service which allows you to pay to have your text of your username chaged. Able to change your username and so on. On the other hand, it would increase the amount of spamming on thr forums.

Well I think the currency should only be gained in the Live forums... the only way that non-live members could gain the currency is through selling sigs and avatars. It would also help make users more active in the AC Live forums because the forums have been slower than previous years for some reason and were more fun back then. I know a few members like cbb, crim and susu might agree with me on this.

I agree, but there has to be something people want to buy with their money, or else it's pretty useless. like 200 gold for 1 extra day added to your live account. or you could pay currency for super extra cinama quality movies. or pay a million gold to take that huge white "animecrave" banner out of the middle of the movie your watching... /rant :mercy

sigh.. at least its in the black area on widescreen ratio movies.

but yeah, anyway...

I disagree because that would take way too much space on the servers... like I said it should be stuff that is forum related.

oops, oh yeah i forgot about server space.

ehh, maybe you could steal some tips off of gaiaonline if their servers would ever stop crashing.

it seems Bassam already has his hands full as it is though..

Hmm not sure about this, you could have fun with it and someone other then Bassam could be in charge since he already gives some control over the forums. What you get is also a hard thing, I mean sigs are free right now and I kinda like it that way...as for the spamming I think it would definitly increase because everyone will always need that one extra point for something or like 5 points away so they just go in and make random meaningless posts. Not sure :-/ but I will agree the forums are less active/fun

Also everyoen complains about the watermarks, honostly they arent that bothersome since they go away after like a minute or less and then only come back at the end of the anime

I always full screen and when I comes to subs I download... so I can watch it that way I don't really understand how people could use youtube for anime.

As AC becomes more and more advanced, this idea might be implemented. Who knows :wink:
