There will be some testing/configuring going on over the next few hours. Please DO NOT trade for any sort of forum currency (based on this site, jsp FG is still cool) until we give the green light. Well, you can if you want to but it'll be reset to 0 soon anyway.

the way both JSP and dtrades methods of distributing FG are both totally different

Dtrades gives FG based on post count which gives people a bigger reason to post random crap and get rewarded for posting so more FG = less value to the FG

on JSP you can only obtain FG by either buying it with money or trading it which is a much better method making FG on that site an actual currency and therefore with less FG in the system it increases the value and worth of it especially when there are certain E-prizes and rewards you can obtain.

FG is worthless on Dtrades since the reset since even the rewards werent updated with the amount of FG per post ratio its still the same price for every single thing which is dumb when you get .1 FG for every single post so it gives people a bigger motivation to post nothing.

My suggestion is to set up rewards and stuff people can buy with FG. Also by distributing it by not the quanity of posts but the quality which will make less FG distributed in the forum, thus putting more value in the FG system so instead of people getting FG for every single thing they post it would be better if the moderators or someone would reward people for their posts/comments and remove FG for any random crap they decide to post.

I wonder how it would get distributed. Would you get FG for like, posting guides and stuff?

So you want the mod team to reward people for positive contributions to the site? It could work but it sounds sort of partial. How would you rate value? 15 units of currency for each guide? 2 units for a detailed explanation of a known bug? Would you rewards people for linking to things that are already explained? Where are the lines drawn?

That's for the mods to decide ^.^

I don't suggest that. . .

Every new person will then copy a guide from a different site and call it his own. . .

Less is better in some cases the rewards would all have to be the same since rewarding someone 15 currency for a guide then rewarding someone else only 2 for giving a detailed explaination of the flaws would only increase in the amount of half-assed guides (check dtrades)

It would also be better if Zharous installed the "Disable post count increase" mod which would actually control the amount of FG spam posts which people would make just for gold I think only enabling post count to increase in certain sections like discussion forums then adjusting the FG to a small increase per post would be excellent and also punishing people by taking away gold would also be a big help.

I'm not sure if that mod is installed. However, if we were to base FG on the amount of posts users make, two things can be done to prevent spamming:
    Disable the Cash Mod for specific forums like the Fire Pit.
    Disable earnings after X number of posts made in a time frame of Y duration.
    Manually reduce the amount of FG a user has (negative numbers can be achieved).

just have more tournaments and other things of the like and reward the players. doing with guides or posts would generate too much spam. if there actually is going to be a moderating team giving it out based on posts, it would take quite a lot of work to go through all of them and would be subjective.

still, its going to be hard to get people to actually want gold over something they actually have in their inventory.

How about tournaments every month or so with fg prizes.

Or have the site start buying lld items for fg and create stockpiles and then after a certain amount of time end it and start selling the items back at lower set prices, thereby setting the value of fg and giving it a feeling of actual worth. This would be slow though, and theres a chance of not being able to sell it off if not done right. The community could take it from there and you could do things like tourneys and drawings and best sig competition? or w/e to keep an influx of fg into the community/ this would proly be too much of a bother but just getting the fg incorporated into the system and giving it a real value cant be based on posts imo.
