We're about to turn on the forum change and I want to have a discussion about the strategy going forward.Points are going to be tied to everything done on allgames.com From hosting a live show to commenting on a topic, it will all have value assigned to it. People who have hosted shows, been contributing to the forums, active in-chat, will get retroactive points. How much is TBD.What are the points for?The points will allow members to level up in different areas. It eventually will be integrated into the allgames app and you'll be able to use a daily allotment of votes to influence the amount of points contributors receive and the value of games and game makers.It's essentially meta-site wide game you play by doing what you already do on these forums and other gaming sites. The whole thing will be the basis for a new show I'll be doing tuesdays - Fridays from 5pm to 7pm before DPL and RPGrinders.The show is calledReal Time Radio with Scot Rubinmore soonthat's my new mission, if you want to help build it this is the thread. Save the comments about how it will ruin the forums, that ship has sailed, it's not if, it's HOW.

Well.. I don't think it will ruin the forums the way that reputation did, since that was so easily used for trolling. It'll be more like gamerscore, and nobody takes that so seriously to get butthurt about it.\o/ for another show.. that's the important thing for me!

You can always tell the quality of the forums by the people who continue to post. Right Reffy?

Ah, I see (somewhat) what your trying to do. For a few sentences, thought it was going to be similar to the rep system.

I think the biggest thing is to make sure it's all tied into one domain, and it seems like you're planning on doing that anyways. No seperate site just for the stream where you can't get your ad revenue and see what other shows are on, no completely different URL for community and forums, the more consolidated it is, the easier it is to use. Looking forward to the new show and I love the look of the site.
