BananaBucks
 
I just installed a new feature called BananaBucks.

You earn BananaBucks for posting and replying to threads. You also earn for referrals and for other actions and interactions with the site (if you refer someone, have them give your username, not your real name, in the "referred by" field on the registration form). You can also donate them to others, use a banking and loan system, among other things. It's very robust, and the more you interact with the Bananas.org website, the more you earn. There are some things, such as picture uploads, and giving "thanks", and saying "welcome", that will be enabled as well. The system will be fine-tuned over the course of this week, and occasionally will be adjusted in the future as well. So if you think you should be earning for something, and your not, send me a message and I'll go over it with you and let you know what to expect, etc.

Basically the BananaBucks will enable you to do different things.
We're going to be launching an auction platform shortly and the points will enable you to get featured listings, for example.

It's a framework that allows us to do many many new things with the site and will offer a lot of fun interaction abilities.

BananaBucks will also be allowed to exchange for live banana plants.
I'll post more about this soon, such as eligibility requirements, rates, etc.

:twonanners:

I hope you enjoy this new feature, and use it well!

Yours truly,
Jarred

Sounds great! My geek self is just wondering though if the classifieds script / mod is going to be implemented or if the "auction platform" is something different?

Keep up the good work!

Thanks Fernie!

I also want everybody to know that I gave everyone the credit they deserve since the day they joined the site, so everyone already has the true worth they've earned - and didn't even know they were earning!

Best regards

Keep up the good work!

It will be very seamless and even utilize the current feedback system.
Thanks for the kudos, btw! Much appreciated.

I have to say I think there could be some problems with this though. What I'm mostly concerned about is people scrounging for all kinds of pictures to upload to help raise there BananaBucks. In my opinion there's already to many random / off topic pictures being uploaded. It doesn't seam fair for someone to get BananaBucks for uploading pictures that don't have anything to do with plants. I know in a recent thread there was some controversy about this but it doesn't seam like anything has changed.

If bucks were only earned for uploading relevant pictures to the Banana Galleries (not the Members Galleries) and there was a quota + fee system for the member galleries, I believe it would be a triple-win situation.

*If*, Kinda going on what I said before about having a whole other gallery for "Other" pictures that wouldn't count toward such things but I don't think something like this is in effect.

We'll do out best to make sure people don't abuse the BananaBucks system.

Also, we're keeping better tabs now on the photos that make it onto the homepage.

I'm new to the musa family and came here by chance. Glad I found this website and hope to learn a lot and in the future! Thanks for the "banana bucks" system as well. Hope it doesn't get abused.
