Suggestion #1

Let's be honest.

Their are 13 and 14 year olds that will come here without any money. Either they don't have a job, don't have PayPal, or their parents aren't financially stable enough to give them some money so they can upgrade here. With that being said I have a solution.

Another usergroup reserved just for purchase with credits


This new addition would bring the activity up and would be a new goal for NulledBB members to reach. Of course since EVERYONE now has an opportunity to upgrade now without paying any money their shouldn't be a bunch of great perks. Sometimes all someone wants is a nice username style and a userbar - you know how it goes.

We could make this usergroup quite pricey and have an expiration date for when members have to upgrade again.

Suggestion #2

What if we had the ability to buy credits right here on the forum, through NulledBB? We could visit the credits page and buy some credits.

If this was implemented, I'm sure new ideas would spring to life such as new stuff we can buy with our credits. This would add some value to them and I think it would be cool. Maybe I'm too lazy to post and don't feel like spending $23 for the big upgrade so I'll just go ahead and spend $10 so I can grab a few downloads like a skid.

Just brainstorming here guys. Took me an adderral and don't know what else to do.

While I do agree that NBB should get an increase in activity, I don't really see why we would need an usergroup for that? What do the users even get?
Buying stuff for credits just feels cheap, it's not hard to gain max ~$29 to gain the upgrades, mow the lawn, get allowance if you're young.

Just buying stuff for credits would also decrease the activity even more.

I am tired since it's almost 1 PM and I haven't slept yet, so if some of this doesn't make sense, my apologies.

Sort of get it, but you gotta think that their are some kids that have to mow the lawn or have to do the dishes and still get no pay. Some adults might not even find upgrading on a forum worth their money if they aren't 100% convinced it's worth it.

The currency system brings a lot of activity as it is - and growing the currency system will be great for the community.

Sure it feels cheap, but with a forum economy in place we outta be able to buy more stuff.

I mean, you can buy/sell pretty much anything for credits, which of course is not against the rules.

I do kinda agree with your first statement, but $6 isn't much, even for kids. Not to mention this isn't a forum really dedicated to youngsters either.

Just because they aren't "able to buy" doesn't mean they won't be upgraded. I'd gladly upgrade a greasy 10yo if he's shown he deserves it.

I personally don't think a group for credits is right, awards yes.

That's like saying "I'm too poor to buy prime so I spammed to get (group name) and can see premium forum now."

Donations should be to support Aoki not because you want to leech premium...

I do agree with you completely.
If you deserve it, you'll most likely get upgraded by someone.
Possibly even me.

Also youngsters get scammed by older's sometimes which is sad and not funny at all.. also you can't blame them there just 12-14 year old kids who don't even have a bank card yet or allowed to borrow money from there parents.

But like faded said this forum isn't for youngsters only its for adults too so yeah.

I completely agree with what you said Gods Hand
