        Hi me again. I have an idea for a way to earn credits that I believe is more or less "chip whore" proof.
        Basically if a person was to post in the forum that person could receive a small number of credits when someone "thank you's" a post or topic or a few credits if a certain number of people thank the post.
        This could work well for people who go out of their way to find new casino no deposit codes/casinos etc, or post a really useful comment which is also helpful, as most of the time I find the best comments often have "thank you's".
        I think this would be a good way of earning credits for quality posts. And as I read in a post from @Zuga earlier, there is an increasing number of chip hunters. I think this would also be a good idea for people who want to earn chips, but it requires a quality post in order to earn a few more. And I think it is a good incentive for people to post better quality and more useful/helpful stuff.
        I also do not think that people would go out of there way to create multiple accounts just to thank one of their own posts, perhaps the chips could be awarded for every 5 "thank you's". To be honest I am not sure how difficult it is to catch people with multiple accounts, but at the moment i literally cannot see the point in people having more than one account.
        this could also work quite well in conjunction with my other post about a like or thumbs up button and the ideas I suggested with that post.
        Thank you for reading
        - Dom

        The easiest way to stop the "whoring"/abuse is to reduce the amount you get for rating a casino/bingo room etc down to 1c!

        I suppose so, or just receiving credits for written reviews and not ratings and they could make star ratings compulsory in order to actually post the written review.

        Thanx for the post Dominic,

        unfortunately this is something we will not implement.

        Some of the reasons include:

        1. There is already many ways to earn the chips , and we are already being VERY generous. It might seem that one small thing like giving few cents for "thanked posts" won't make much of a difference. However given the sheer volume of our membership, daily posts and thank you's given this would cost us a lot.
        And given that shop is designed to actually award members for their contributions and that giving/taking thank you's is not an actual contribution to LCB , it is suffice to say why we do not want to award chips for this.

        2. Easy to abuse:  Multiple accounts ( which we can easily spot ) and also teaming up with other forum members in order to "exchange" thank you's .
        This will also bring upon us one additional thing to monitor against the abuse, and truth to be told it is not worth it.
        Yes I do understand that majority would not abuse it, however we just do not see the actual benefits of having this. 

        3. Additional programming would need to be done, which would cost us additionally,  and currently we are using our resources for more pressing matters.

        Regarding the current abuse,  thankfully it is only the minority of members, and not all of them is doing the abuse on purpose.

        At least half of the cases is due to members not bothering to actually read our T&Cs. And in such cases we are being lenient.
        As for the classic abusers we have no mercy

        However my post was directed at all members more of a reminder and advice to abide by the rules in order to avoid any potential problems and also to make things easier on LCB team.


        cheers
        Zuga

        Ah right was only an idea anyway, cheers for the detailed response though. Also when you typed no mercy it created a link to the slot of that name

        Looking at what you said about people who could potentially exchange "thank-you" posts, I imagine this  could indeed be hard to catch out, and could result in people being wrongly banned.

        Hi Zuga I won't start another topic for this suggestion :L

        Under your free games section you could have a "Favorite" button on the individual games/slots, clicking the button could then make the Favorited games appear on your profile, so when people click on your profile they can see what your favorites are. This could also be used for casinos in the exact same way.

        I think this would be good to help fill peoples profiles in more as they seem a bit bare at the moment, and more obviously you could see what others on here prefer to play and where they prefer to play it.

        Apologies if there is already something similar to this that I have completely missed

        I agree with blue . I have not been very active lately because a blind man can see that some people joined not to enjoy LCB and the great forum but to gain a un deserved profit. I have also noticed some long standing contributing members are not posting much. 8'|

        I joined LCB before I realised there was a shop I jsut wanted to gamble without spending any of my own money to be honest.
        I made the first suggestion as an idea for people who genuinely contribute useful stuff to be rewarded, but Zuga did not like the idea, which is fine, it was only a suggestion.
        Why do chip hunters affect why you don't come on here any more? . Why don't you just ignore them and let the mods deal with it?

        Simple- because i care about LCB. I did not say i don't come on here anymore  Also i do let the mods handle it i hardly ever comment on it. I have not only been a member years but a contributing member. Like you said let the mods handle the bonus abusers and i will also say the mods can PM me and ask me why i made the above post. To stay on topic i agree with blue that maybe the casino comments should be worth less. Good luck.

        Sorry I totally misread that part. my apologies , I had only just woke up . The reason I put suggestions on here is because Zuga has said all suggestions are welcome and I want to be a useful & contributing member of the site as well . Also my last suggestion is pretty good. the one about favoring slots

        NO MORE  SUGGESTIONS  about anything to do with earning coins please ppl.   

        I noticed that  zuga and other LCB staff  members have been posting & reposting the shop rules  & T&Cs quite a lot lately  ; 8'|

        It's sounding like a broken record oredy yet I'm still seeing alot of coin whoring posts being made >:(

        I believe the only way to combat and stop this coin whoring behaviour  is for  LBN to penalise members  5-10 coins  each time they coin whore post. 

        LCB will have no choice but to close the shop or go broke staying open If this problem persists...
        And I definitely don't want any of that to happen so please implement this or sumthin similar LCB

        If u do good u get rewarded......
        if u do bad u get punished.....
        Simple as that!!

        I don't even think punished with coins being deducted is enough I think a suspension for a month would show them not to abuse the kind nature of LCB and all the team! I actually pmd Zuga about getting coins for my post about video games in general discussion as I thought it was an error. This is the way everyone should be though I was honest about that and Zuga appreciated it. The hardwork put in regularly by everyone at LCB we should have a ceremony in appreciation of their work it's really that good! I loved the site before a shop was added and everyone else should have this attitude instead of being really greedy and exploiting something LCB does not need to feature!!
