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
