this idea sucks ill kill you
I'm jealous of the others with more Sythe gold now :/
Where to buy moar?
Wouldn't be a good idea, because they'd want donations instead for those perks. I assume?
I'm unsure on this. Only if the system is 100% fool-proof. In the circumstances where it can be abused say Market bumps; specific areas where you can gain unlimited amounts of SG atm, will peoples SytheGold be removed completely as a result of abuse?
The site will be directly promoting their own method to have a way to gamble. Have we thought about the implications/legality of this? Under-aged users etc.
Can you tell us when you decided to switch on SG? I'm curious why I had 1.3k the first day it was released publicly.
This seems like a pretty neat idea, and it looks like a lot of effort, hard work, coding has gone into this. I can't wait to see the outcome of it all ^.^ I was wondering another scenario, what if people get SG for participating in CDT/TC/PR events? (Matthew or Rich, the dev teams can discuss how we can go about this if you decide it's a good idea).
I asked @Sythe about that and he said it was likely not necessary to remove points for deleted posts. But you bring up a good point. I should also note that if you unlike something it does take Gold away.
It's a work in progress and at the end of the day it's not money. It's not real and it can't be turned into real money directly. If you choose to give it to someone in exchange for money, that's your business. We will do what we can to curb people farming Sythe Gold or earning it inappropriately and we always retain the ability to take gold away from people. We can also award it for various events and other things if we want, I wrote all of that into the system.
As for gambling, it's not real money. If people want to throw it all away then so be it. I don't really care what they do. You mention legality a lot and I'm not sure why you worry so much about that. We provide a site for users to interact and we prohibit illegal conduct as much as we can. We also put a lot of work into protecting our users, mostly from each other, and try to keep this a safe environment. If people want to gamble and waste their gold, let them. Since it's not real money, it doesn't really have legal implications anyways.
Haha I'm sorry, when you're around Lean saying he wants to take Sythe to court, whether he's trolling or not, it just makes you question.
It's just the ToS says, "The providers ("we", "us", "our") of the service provided by this web site ("Service") are not responsible for any user-generated content and accounts ("Content"). Content submitted express the views of their author only."
And I assume that's fine when other people have services here, but when yourselves implement a system which directly links to being able to be active on a forum and use that gold to gamble with, isn't this like conflicting? I only mention because I'm unsure.
I don't see the conflict. We provide a framework for our users. You could argue the same for MiniRanks. People could "bet" those and gamble them too... Ultimately we can't micro manage the users and frankly I don't want to. We've had plenty of people threaten legal action over the years but they're usually just butthurt about something like getting banned.
Bump timer bypass... Gainz.
When you put it in that perspective makes sense then. Thank ya.
For CDT/TC/PR events if they're included in gaining SG in future, you say you've wrote that up; but how would we go about this, the teams would give you a list of active participants per event? I know the CDT can give you this for the Summer events etc.
Why does guests have 190 sythe gold, while @Kaii for example only has 75?
Edit: sorry for stupid questions. Just got me wondering
Cause guests probably post more useful stuff while i hardly ever post and when i do it's mostly picking verbal fights with people.
It'll be up to Sythe if he wants Sythe Gold given away by things like CDT/TC/PR. If we decide to do that, you'll probably need to give an admin a list of users and how much gold they should get so it can be awarded.
Meh. Imo most people who donate don't do it for the minor cosmetic perks, at least, not entirely. I intentionally left the amount of Sythe Gold needed for this blank. The whole point of this is to boost activity and draw in new members. I think the more incentives there are, the better this will be for Sythe as a whole. Just my two cents though
Looks like an awesome update. Being able to purchase fun ranks for an insane amount of gold would be pretty neat. Thanks for the good work.
190 is the number for all guests as far as I have seen. And considering they are not registered and have no posts, why dont you start with 190 as well?
Cause i'm special.
seems like an interesting idea to say the least, i do like the idea about being able to buy miniranks with it.
Looks fine but people are going to be farming likes now
