I am still working on it, but the idea behind it is that there will be a virtual currency "credits" that will enable people to "buy" and trade digital items. You might have also noticed the new "Downloads" section where you can upload items and "sell" them for credits. When it is fully implemented it will function like a virtual economy where the more you share, the more you earn, which will enable you to "buy" more items from other people.  A key benefit of this is that in order to "buy" items you must have credits, which eliminates "freeloaders" , and gives the uploader a direct reward for sharing. This will be an optional thing for those who want to use it.  My plan is to add some virtual gift cards to the "market" so that you can trade your credits for real money, and/or add exclusive content that can be "purchased" with credits.

Thank You Admin for the Clarification.

Okay @Admin, thanks for the info. I'm interested to see how this will work when it's fully implemented.

Not entirely sure this will be a big hit. On this forum, you would expect the stuff that gets put up for sharing/selling for credit are the pics and vids. We already have the gallery for that. I don't see how this will lead to more sharing, I think the people willing to share are already doing that, and that the possibility of earning "credits" for your sharing won't be a big motivator for people to share more.

But, to be honest, I am always against all changes at first. Didn't like the new forum format at first either, but don't want to go back to the old one now.
