Thought long and hard on this and I think many would agree with the changes. 1 Firstly, the admins and mods are sort of locked out of this "economy" because we can, after all, do the things we want anyway, so why bother right? Well, I want to change that. I am sure all of the mods/hosts want to participate and, hell, so do I. I will disallow myself and other hosts to simply change things without the proper purchase. With any other crew, I am sure I would have heard a lot of complaints, but not with the current roster. I believe we want to participate on the same level as any other member. Plus, it makes the playing more fun for EVERYone. HOWEVER. I also want to reward hosts of this forum with dollars as well. The reward system will be automated based on how well something was done, percentage of the money for anything bought in GlobalAffairs Store will go to a pool, and at pay day, every host will get a share of the pie automatically donated to them in a form of a paycheck. It will have manual intevention as well for properly/timely splitting a thread (with linking to the old thread, proper color application to the edits, and inclusion of name for example), moving a topic, original contests and ideas for their own hosted forums, etc... 2 I am now almost done with an arcade for this forum. There's only 5 games in flash right now, but it will take 50 GA bucks to play a single game, sort of like quarters. The 50 bucks will go towards a GA Arcade pool and will be automatically donated to the member with the highest score. 3 Any new user who posts will receive automatic 300 GA dollars to use on betting in Sports forum or playing arcade, or buying an avatar. People who register here and do not post will not be included in this giveaway. 4 If your title is changed via another user purchasing that option, one rule, no crying and/or complaining. It's for FUN, and once you accumulate enough dollars --which really is not too hard-- you can purchase your own and overwrite it. No one has complained but I see people getting enough money now, in which they can do this. I want to nip this issue at the root. The above rules and regulations are subject to change.
