What to do about the Voice Bucks

I've been trying to come up with a simple solution for the Voice Bucks idea that I installed on the forum. I got to thinking while visiting walmartsucks.com tonight that maybe we can do something along the lines of what they do with their 'suck bucks'.

They have a lottery and a slots add-on to their forum that allows you to spend your bucks.

What does everyone think of that idea?

Could someone please explain to me the concept of voice bucks and contest points? What are they and what do we do with them? I've peeked around the board a little, but I can't find anything about it.

Thanks in advance........

Flena,

The voice bucks were originally setup as a site currency idea that would allow people to purchase stuff on the site. Since then times have changed and I still don't have anything to put up.

The contest points are reset at the beginning of a contest and whoever reaches the highest during a set period of time wins that contest. The last contest was a t-shirt.

This might be the Dumb liberal view but couldn't the Voice bucks be like used as a way to rate members. I belong to GASP another online posting group and they have a rating system for how active people are on the site. It's set up is all different than the voice bucks but it's the same idea.

Right now most active members are 1000airs...
soon though some of us (homer for instance) will be 10000airs
and then there's some of us (like me) who are new and in the thousand mark.
If you wait to long founder there's going to be millionaires before you have product to sell. Think of voice bucks as the paycheck for posting.


I am confused though how the voice bucks zoom up so fast. I would like to see how itís rated?
