Beans Currency

Recommended Posts

So here's my idea.

Every time somebody makes a post or creates a thread, they receive X amount of beans. When they reach a certain amount of beans, they're able to go over to the bean store and purchase a temporary badge, unique post template. These will only last a month before disappearing and the player will have to repurchase it through the bean store.

The post template will either be a color nobody else has or a picture that has the opacity set low.

When players donate for every 5€, they'll receive X amount of beans. 

To not confuse Beans with BeanZ, I decided to make this red text.

I've seen someone come up with a very similar idea not too long ago. I'm on mobile right now do I'll link the thread if I can find it later.

I don't really know about this being a thing because of the whole spending money on community currency. For one thing you'd have to come up with more things it could be used for. It would make it kind of worthless to those who have already donated a lot.

I do however like the idea of getting "BeanZ" for making threads and certain numbers of posts. You might be on to something. :)

I think this would just turn the forums into everyone spamming shit posts in order to receive more currency/beans. Yeah, we want more people to contribute in discussion, but spamming to receive a reward isn't the way to achieve that in my opinion.

No. God, no.

This type of stuff has been suggested multiple times so I will say what I always say:

"I would hate to see these nice, clean, simple forums turn into a colourful mess where everything is difficult to keep track of"

So please, no more suggestions like this

How I found out - Copy and paste the original number into word. delete all commas ( ctrl+f -> replace all) and delete the 1 at the front. Then find out how many characters there are = 1260

People shit post anyways, nothing would change. You'll commonly see people who're relatively new spam so they're able to apply for staff.

I don't see how this would turn the forums in to a colorful mess... nothing new that isn't already on the forums.

There needs to be a form of currency besides donation, whether it be this or something else. We'll see what the staff says.

True and we try not to encourage it like this would. Also, a select few people spamming in order to apply for staff would be nothing compared to the whole community spamming for a currency.

So here's my idea.

Every time somebody makes a post or creates a thread, they receive X amount of beans. When they reach a certain amount of beans, they're able to go over to the bean store and purchase a temporary badge, unique post template. These will only last a month before disappearing and the player will have to repurchase it through the bean store.

The post template will either be a color nobody else has or a picture that has the opacity set low.

When players donate for every 5€, they'll receive X amount of beans. 

To not confuse Beans with BeanZ, perhaps it could be changed to something else.

I think it defeats the purpose of having Beanz really...

I think this would just turn the forums into everyone spamming shit posts in order to receive more currency/beans. Yeah, we want more people to contribute in discussion, but spamming to receive a reward isn't the way to achieve that in my opinion.

People shit post anyways, nothing would change. You'll commonly see people who're relatively new spam so they're able to apply for staff.

True and we try not to encourage it like this would. Also, a select few people spamming in order to apply for staff would be nothing compared to the whole community spamming for a currency.

This doesn't encourage spamming, it's more incentive for people to use the forums. People spam regardless.

So here's my idea.

Every time somebody makes a post or creates a thread, they receive X amount of beans. When they reach a certain amount of beans, they're able to go over to the bean store and purchase a temporary badge, unique post template. These will only last a month before disappearing and the player will have to repurchase it through the bean store.

The post template will either be a color nobody else has or a picture that has the opacity set low.

When players donate for every 5€, they'll receive X amount of beans.

See the bottom text. It's two seperate things.

Definitely would be interesting to see, but I don't know.. BeanZ itself is already somethin people trade for, if you implement something like this it's going to be just a group of friends spamming each other with BeanZ and you end up seeing that particular group always having this badge

Not trying to sound combative, but do you really think that offering incentives for posting more won't cause people to 'shit post' , or spam posts more often then they do?

I think the BeanZ system is okay as is, i like it being a way to compliment good RP or good posts, and not to encourage 'shit posting'

Pretty sure that's already happening but I get your point.

mabey a small premium upgrade simular to the donation system, however people should be proud of the beanz and not need a title, or item

I feel that this would just produce more people who shitpodt, much like I've done I'm the past, and would result in a lot of useless threads...

+1. I agree that it would just devolve into people saying whatever they can to make dem Beans. As well, if these posts become so trite, will the staff have more work on their hands, to erase them, hand out warnings about trivial posts?

As much as i think having a blue name would be nice, i do think it would encourage the shit posting. Now with that being said, if you have looked at the "No report party" thread, there is Plenty of shit posting as it is

That's an off-topic thread, can't really count that. The whole thing is kinda meant to be a joke.

Thumbs down from me. Forums are active as is and perks are "sold" from the premium shop to keep the servers up. I don't feel this would add any real benefits to the community and would add more work to the current staff team.

Obviously but I mean, if you don't count that as shit posting then i really doubt having a reward system would change anything. Unless you were only rewarded for posting in certain areas
