Default vcharge for repping?

I know there's a Non-Tennis thread about this, I just wanted to ask about something that Gravity said in the thread. Wouldn't it make more sense to leave the daily ban in place and then charge if you go over 10? That just seems like a better way to do it.

Well one reason for charging vCash is to try and make people think a little more before throwing around as many reps as possible just so they can good rep their best friends all over again.

We have changed all this a little based on feedback.

First of all the fee has been reduced siginificantly. It was insanely high earlier requiring people to make as many as 200 posts a day to earn enough to rep 10 people.

Secondly, if you send a good rep out, the person you are giving positive reputation to will receive a percentage of the fee (the actual amount is shown on screen). If you send negative, that person receives nothing but lost points.

We will also be extending reputations to optionally allow you to donate vCash to your friends in future. So if you've earned hundreds of thousands, you can share a bit around with people you like or feel deserve some extra vCash to spend.

You will be able to do a lot more with vCash in the coming weeks and months ahead.

I have information about all this vcash changes all over different forums and not very clear in most cases.

Why don't the admins set up a thread or whatever in this forum and put all info for vcash here?

There are still posters have absolutely no knowledge of these changes.

We're still putting together a webpage detailing all aspects of the new members rewards program. The reason we haven't given too much information about all this yet is we're still testing and tweaking the changes on the live site.

that's what i think too! 10 free reps, you want to give more? you pay!

or if we pay, we get unlimited reps! It's my vCash I'd like the control on how to spend it please thank you.......if I want to rep away my cash, that my decision right???

Default Re: vcharge for repping?

I really don't like to have the reps cost vcash. I like to send people messages that way as well as rep them. Sometimes I read a thread after it is all over and want to say something about a post but it's not worth it to get an arguement started all over again. I can just say a few words to the posters whose posts I liked. Sometimes, after a great win, I like to rep all of a players fans who are around as sort of a high-five.

I don't rep people so I can just rep my "friends" again. Maybe some people do that, but why do you want to put a stop to that? I don't get it.

Is there anything you can spend your vCash on besides betting and repping?

Default Re: vcharge for repping?

Not that it matters, since it was only an internet game anyways... but all of these silly charges and ways of earning more vcash that have nothing to do with the game itself are... ridiculous. They eliminate the point. I'll still play, because I'm bored a lot, I'm just saying. This is all absolutely absurd.

While charging for reps may help stop some people from "abusing" the rep system (and honestly, who cares if people do? Reputation is a silly feature anyways, that should not be taken seriously), giving money for posts, blogs, etc. is just encouraging people to post more useless posts, and potentially spam in the hopes of upping their vcash.

Then again, I suppose that gives you guys more page views, which means more ad views.
