        Hi all,

        as the title a sugests...

        how about a gift shop for the thank you posts we recieve......

        so when we get soo many thank you posts we can redeem bonuses for a specific casino or so on, and where it says under our name we have this many thank yous and that many given,
        there could be another 1 that says  (thank yous used for a gift)

        i dont know what the rate of bonuses could be, but maybe 50 for £5 or £10 bonus at a casino you get an exclusive for or a sponser for the site i dont know but i really think this could work and make the site much better

        i think it will actually make the site better in the long term, more people would make an effort and keep an eye out and post more promotions on the forum and soo on, yes this system could be abused too, but i actually think the positives outway the negatives

        and there could be a limit on how many thank yous you can recieve in 1 day and so on

        so that would stop the abuse to a certain extent

        just an idea, i hope everyone else thinks it is too

        GL all

        LuckyRJ

        Hmmm it definitely could be open to abuse.  Do you think it would "de-value" the thank yous as they stand at this moment in time?

        i dont know, maybe not, there could maybe be tiered thank yous though

        different lvls of thank yous that can be given, like for example when you goto click the thank you button it does a drop down and gives 3 or more different types of thank yous you can give

        so there is a lot of ways around it to be honest, so i think it will work

        First, it is great to see people trying to think of ways to enhance the forum... but, that said, I have to wonder with blue if that would de-value the thank yous as they are now used.

        Now, you use the thank you to show agreement and appreciation for what the poster has written. If you knew you were going to get a prize of some sort for saying it then most would say it on every post they read and that, I think, would render it meaningless...

        The idea of a "tiered" thank you kind of fits in with a thought I have had about that feature of the forum... sometimes when I use the thank you it just does not express what I am actually trying to say regarding that post, so I have thought perhaps some choices of things we could say with that click... for instance, you could choose things like, "well done" "I totally agree" or "way to go" etc.

        i knew there would be responses like this, i was questioning myself when i first made this thread, if i should write it or not

        but i do understand what you are saying kat, but however, if the admins add it and create the system so that it can not be abused it would work....

        i have allready said what can be done so it cant be abused,

        a cap on how many posts you can do the thank you on and which type of thank you, you can give

        so say for instance the type of thank you you get for the gift shop could be capped at recieving say 5 per day of those type, i really dont see it has a problem

        i think it's always good to come up with new ways to augment the forum;  and i have always looked at LCB as the forerunner of new concepts and ideas that blow away all other forums...
        but i am going to agree with Blue and Katts on this one.  i really don't know how you can do this without abuse.  when i was just a lurker, and the concept of the thank-you came up, i did not even feel comfortable with this.  i have no problem at all giving people a hey way to go, or hey great idea, or thanks or whatever the situation may be...but i felt THAT was something that was too competive and abusive.  i think that everyone genuinely tries to help people out, and if they were starting to keep a scoreboard, then things  would be done insincerely and that bothered me.

        this is like that tenfold.

        Setting aside the possibility of abuse... what you say here RJ would bother me a great deal. I say a lot of thank you's as things stand today. They are meaningful and heartfelt when I give them. I appreciate every one that I receive also.  But if I had to consider how many of which kind I had sent on that particular day I would go nuts.  What happens if I read something AFTER I have used up my "allotment" of thank you's for that day? 

        As I said I do appreciate when people think up ideas to make the forum better (keep 'em coming). And if the administration decides to do what you suggest, I would learn some way to cope with it... most likely I would just stop thanking people personally... just sayin'

        ok ok, i can understand

        well how about another system seperate to the thank yous then

        maybe a new system altogether but still keep the thank you system as it is

        maybe i dont know lol

        but maybe the admins could think of something that wont affect the current thank you system then, it would be nice to get extra bonuses though for taking part in the forum, even though i take part anyway, if you know what i mean

        I understand what your saying RJ...it would be a bit dificult to abuse...your saying for the thanks yous we "recieve" not "give". Giving thanks yous would get abused for sure but recieving them is a whole other story...we can't make people read out post and thank us for them...they would just have to be on the look out for multiple accounts created to thank ourselfs to get ahead of the game but LCB is always on top of things like that and spammers! I think it's a fun idea and would definately get people more motivated to start posting and sharing their thoughs and ideas! I'm guessing if they did something like this regular terms would apply to the free chip or whatever the bonus is and also it would have to be a bit difficult to earn...maybe 1000 thank yous for $10 otherwise LCB would go broke, lol!

        No problem...From what I read it looks like everyone misunderstood what you were trying to say....unless I'm misreading but you are going by the amount of people who thank you for post not by how many you give. Along the same line here if that doesn't work maybe they could give out a bonus once a month to the 3 people who have the most thanks yous accumulated for that month or the top 3 people who's post have been read the most???? That might be pretty cool...it would mean us users would have to come up with some pretty catchy headers to get others to read our posts! I dunno, anything that includes a free bonus will definately get people posting lol...!

        I was one of the stronger opponents to this idea when this thread was started... so I will just try to sum up what I have a problem with, then I will sit down, shut up, and see what comes... as I said before, whatever is done I will learn to cope with it. Here are quotes directly out of RJ's explanation of the "system" he is suggesting:

        "and there could be a limit on how many thank yous you can recieve in 1 day and so on
        there could maybe be tiered thank yous" 

        "different lvls of thank yous that can be given"

        "a cap on how many posts you can do the thank you on and which type of thank you, you can give"

        "for instance the type of thank you you get for the gift shop could be capped at recieving say 5 per day"

        So, I'm just sayin', tiers, limits, levels, and caps placed on something like a thank you given or received in appreciation or to show agreement with a post does not seem right to me. And my final point I want to put forward on this subject is that even without it being a competition and thank yous not having any value for prizes or purchases, there have been people that complain and have their feelings hurt because they did not receive enough thank yous.

        Now as promised I will sit down and hush.

        Thanks for your suggestions and coming up with ideas to make LCB better than ever RJ!

        The idea of coming up with some type of reward for the number of posts per month has been tossed around a few times. The problem with this is the abuse. You would have members coming with nice posts and others posting things like "ok, nice, ty" etc just to build up posts.

        If there was a way to give to give credit for solid replies and not one word posts it would be great but it's impossible to keep track of it.

        One way to avoid this that may be a better way to go about it is to place the value on the number of threads created by members. I have been trying to talk Zuga into that one for a long time!

        We do have the stats board that keeps track of all this on a monthly basis. What would be cool is to have several winners over say a three month period time at first til it caught on and have a LCB slot tournament using one our free play slots and the winner gets a cash prize!

        Lips
