SMF Shop - rewards for members - Your thoughts?
« on: Oct 17, 2018, 12:09 PM »

:: This is a split topic from the Mod suggestion thread - Fritz ::



I like the look of smfshop
https://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=65

Might be a bit controversial but we can earn coins by posting and can spend coins to get ...stuff...
A lot of boomtubers have a coin participation thang going on which people quite like. Mostly it is just accumulated as the shop aspect stopped being supported by the developers but it could be cool here.

For example we could buy titles, avatars, privileges such as being able to pm, increase post count, increase karma. Not sure what all can be done but maybe something to look at.


Edit could also do boom beach related stuff where by peeps could drop by task forces to drop intel (at a cost), maybe op hits etc

Wait, what’s this thread about?

Anyway, cool idea. I like the “edit” part about having in-game rewards. Cool 👍

Busy with stuff at the mo, but will look at it soon - needs a bit of work to implement and have to think how people get rewards else it's pointless

Great 👍, I don’t know how flexible it is but just off the top of my head...

Ways to earn coins
Registering
Posting
Logging in
Winning competitions

Ways to spend coins
Titles
Avatars of varying coolness
Footnotes
Access to pm
Increase post count
Buy intel
Buy an op hit
Banners
Highlight posts for say taskforces looking for players
Games?
Raffles?


I sort of see this as increasing involvement and encouraging people to register and log in

As one of the old farts here, I find none of that stuff interesting.

Yeah, I'd be of the same opinion - some of them rely on cross participation and how do you follow up on that, too much of an headache

One thing I thought of initially when starting the forum was relevant ads and any income that *may* come about would be put towards BB swag that I buy (hopefully at a discount lol) and then raffle that off in some kind of competition monthly or whatever

Yeah I get that but the old farts are not the target audience for this though, it is more to encourage new people.

It surprises me how many people on some Boomtuber channels are really into this coin idea. Viewers are constantly checking what coins they have and participating. They were particularly keen when there was the possibility of buying stuff from a store. The store never materialised but the interest still stayed. All they might get now is entry to a raffle that lets them win more coins or a shout out.
It definitely works and with a shop that may offer something then it will work even better.

We need to attract people to this site so they can see all this great information and participate, getting good advice, otherwise we will just be a cosy private club with a dwindling membership over time.
This does not appeal to everyone which is why I said it would be controversial and it will involve work especially by fritzelly to look into and set up.
Hey it may just flat out not work, I don’t know the details of the mod.

But other than the initial work it will have no impact on how the forum is used by us, the info is still freely available etc

I've no problem with it in essence but needs some work.
Maybe you can exchange 100 coins for a custom title or for a raffle entry for a prize
So I'm all for the idea but it needs some fleshing out of how it will work - so maybe open a new thread for it.
I'm sure once the update hits there will be lots of new (and probably old) members on the site - so might be a good incentive to stay around.

When I said old farts, I didn't mean long time player. I meant age. All those trinkets are just not attractive to me even if I were a new member.

Hey, if anyone wants me to swing by their TF for an op hit, say the word. But remember, caveat emptor. 🙃

You can't be any worse than some of my current TF members.

Will you feature the TF in a video?
