Information about the Shop.

Discussion in 'Announcements Archive' started by Crayo, Jul 11, 2013.

  1. Right, as you have probably seen, I'm in the process of adding a forum shop to the site. This was a very popular feature when we used MyBB, and since we have nothing to use money for at the moment, this will be handy. However, if I were to add this feature and stock it with purchasable items, then I would need to reset the cash system. That means your cash will be reset to 0. Please hear me out before you get your pitch forks ready.

    I completely understand how much effort you've gone to stack up your forum cash. However, if I didn't reset it, I'd have to have the item prices at ridiculous amounts, and even then some users can buy them over and over again with no incentive due to how much cash they already have now. The shop isn't just a cool feature you can use your money for, it's also a feature that is incentive to stay active. That's how I view it.

    How much would you guys hate me if I did reset it? Maybe there is a way where I don't have to do it, but if this is the case, would you guys really mind?
     
  2. personally i wouldn't mind, knowing i am getting to use the Shop, but i can't speak for everyone
     
  3. I would hate you for life..........


    JK I will always love you but I would be pissed
     
  4. People worked hard for that cash, and now you're just taking it away. You should run for government.
    But really, I don't think it matters.

  5. :)

    What would your solution be? The last thing I really want is hundreds of angry users to make use of one feature, but it is a feature everyone has requested.
     
  6. Give everyone a £1000
     
  7. I'd go bankrupt.

    But in all seriousness, that just means prices increase. It needs to be an incentive remember.
     
  8. Actually, I do have a bit of a negative reaction to it. Although it probably is for the best, the more you reset it, the less valuable it feels earning it again.
    I think you should make something really expensive, an award perhaps, so the richest users can buy it. At least then we all know who the top earners were.
     
  9. Take a log (This will take time but I can help you if it makes a difference) of the regular members here and take a log of their forum cash and give them it when the shop is up, This sounds like a shit idea but its the only thing I can think of
     
  10. the only way to do it IMO is a very long and boring job of Screen Shotting Everyone's profile and giving the money back. But seeing as we have 4000+ members that is improbable
     
  11. Maybe put the cash on a bet? :D So that we can use them one last time haha
     
  12. In all honesty, it wouldn't bother me too much. I would earn up some money with posting, then hopefully get lucky in bets and earn the money I have now back.

  13. I actually wouldn't really mind. I don't have that much money anyway lmao, but money isn't that hard to earn back. If you have $25000 or something I can understand that you get pissed but most people have like $2000-$4000 which you can earn back in a while. If you just post a lot, maybe take part In LDs you'll earn money. Then, like Airbourne said, use them for bets & you'll probably earn back your cash in not that much time..
     
  14. It would annoy me a lot. Considering how I've had to work to get that cash.

    I'm willing to go down to like $2m, but not be reset totally. It just seems entirely unfair. Lets be honest, if everyone was on levels of like $10k, $20k and I wasn't on $6m it wouldn't be reset as I wouldn't be on a high amount.

    You said that 'You can just get it back on bets' so why reset it anyway if I can just earn it back in a day? I think an award costing like $5m sounds pretty cool. I'd buy it, and then I'm not buying everything in the shop :)
     
  15. I gave all my money to Scarlette :dawg:

    Needless to say, I wouldn't give a shit. Was never a huge fan of the cash system to begin with. :badass: :boss:

  16. That's why I don't want it to reset haha. :))
     
  17. It wouldn't really bother me with you resetting money, This just tells some of the more not active people on the site to become active to earn money back, But I feel seriously bad for people that have sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much money.
     
  18. I would despise you for it. Hold a grudge. How dare you take all my nine dollars away Crayo.

    (Seriously it's no big deal, and only makes sense. Can you keep track of sportsbook winnings separately though? Don't want Jonathan losing out on the one thing he has to brag about)

  19. Tbh what does it matter if it gets reset, there is no decent use for it atm anyway, if reseting it and implementing a new feature helps the forum then go for it mate, i don't see a problem with lsoing the virual cash I had, that I didn't have anything to spend it on anyway
     
  20. I guess you (or other member) can create a thread to see how many people would like to have their money back. Then announcing that thread so everyone can see it and no one says "you morons deleted my forum cash!" or things like that. Then you just see how much cash they had and tag him with the amount in the OP.

    I wouldn't care too much if I lose my $12000, but I'd prefer to keep them to be honest
