View Full Version : And here's another completely stupid thread (but it contains good idea)

Voila! It's so easy to create a new thread.

Every stupid bot like JM^3 can do. Hell, even Drekkus does!

I got a new concept: When you start a thread, you will get a point for each reply (not for your own replies to that thread). It's some kind of forum currency, the "Glowie".

For 10 Glowies (that is 10 replies) you can start a new thread. The Glowies will be subtracted from your Glowie-Account.

To make it easier to talk about, 10 Glowies are also called a "Kablowie".

Please reply to this, so I can start more threads in the future!

Who will maintain our Kablowie accounts? Can we check our balance online?

24-05-2007, 09:01:52
How do we start a thread if we've got no Glowies yet? Are you trying to kill the board?

Everyone gets 3 Kablowies for free.

Hell, haven't you been to this ridiculous "FREE Mail hosting" sites where you can buy features like "spam filter" or "SMS notification" for virtual money?

We could trade Glowies on Ebay for RL money.

Or you're allowed to buy the right to use bigger avatars!

70x70 = 10 Kablowies
80x80 = 50 Kablowies
100x100 = 1000 Kablowies

If you write an article you'll get Glowies, depending on a rating done by the other posters

This is Web 2.0

This smells like 'reputation' points meets post count. I'M IN!!!!

Do you get bonus points if one of our wonderful Moderators posts in your thread? Maybe an entire Kablowie if The Management posts.

I've implemented this, along with a feature for contributors to be able to buy Glowies via SMS credits, a feature where you can gift Kablowies to each other, and one which will let you trade them for cute icons of puppies in your profile.

Coming soon: a virtual counterglow environment, trade Kablowies for furniture!

Six more posts and you'll have earned two kablowies from this thread alone. I'd retire.

In that case, I'm starting a new Word Association thread!

This requires thinking ... or at least math. This will fail.

Oh, big companies sometimes work well even if they are led by complete morons!
