Essentially they only real purpose of spudbuxs are for the purchase of a signature ability. If that is its sole purpose, why not trash the spudbuxs, and give you the ability after say '200' posts?

They are transfered among older users, to new users in the 'assloads' [Got that term from PC :-p Its the new term of measurement.] Its such a abused system, PC is considering that we just get rid of them. They carry no sense of value to the personages that attain a signature, so they can 'bribe' you, if you will, to do something. For example Gort because of his moderation ability can give you 50-100 at the few clicks of a button. Hell, I could give you 10 digits worth of SB's at the few clicks of a button. So Gort for example gives you 50-100 SB's for in turn images/videos that he has in hopes will produce greater results in his personal spudding related business endeavour. These units hold absolutely no value to him, but he can get you to do things you normally would not do for them? Id consider that a utter waste, and scam.

I mean let me jot down a few numerical values on a scratch piece of paper, and in return you become my personal slave? Yeah its a enticing scam, one Ive almost entered. :-p

Get rid of the damned things!

Basically with a Karma system, each one of you would get a Karama ratings, basically saying how "good and honest" you are, and how good of a quality your posts are.

Each member could add 1 karma point to anyone, once per day.

If the Karama system would be turned on, then Signatures would be allowed after X many posts.

The only problem with giving the sig after XXX amounts of posts is people will start to spam....not that they already don't :wink:

And with the Gort thing, people were giving him pics before the SB's, I would give him the pics and videos for free its only 50-100SB not like 3000SB

Donations were abused.

The SpudBux system is supposed to make it so you can earn a signature and a title. OR you could blow it on the casino (or get lucky there). OR you could blow it on funny items such as the G-String in the store.

When donations were turned ON, members with high amounts of spudbux would just give out spudbux for no good reason. That completely defies the reason of the SpudBux system, so Donations have been shut off.
