So, Lewdcoins....what are they?
They're points you gain for posting on the site.
Ok...what can I use them for?
So....why was this feature added to the site?
Lewdcoins will be used for special access to future functionality.
What kind of "functionality"?
We're looking at gallery/image hosting functionality. The gallery forums we have now are nice, but they're a hassle to browse if you don't know what you're looking for. Popular threads sometimes have over 40 pages, and are often cluttered with comments and offtopic nonsense. If you're just browsing the site for nice images, it's hard to find anything of use. That's why a gallery makes sense.
So what do Lewdcoins have to do with that?
Two reasons: 1.We want to encourage people to participate more in the community. 2. Webspace isn't cheap. We're running this site out of our own pockets, and don't want to waste space on people's screencaps and low quality content. Right now, the idea is that uploading files will cost a certain amount of Lewdcoins, perhaps depending on filesize. You then receive Lewdcoins for every person who views your image. If your work is popular, you'll get more coins so you can upload more stuff. If your stuff is not popular, you can still earn points by posting helpful messages and critique other people's work.(spamming and leaving shitposts will get you banned though) Others can send you their Lewdcoins as well.
What if nobody will use the gallery because there are not enough Lewdcoins to go around?
In that case, we might just remove lewdcoins and just let people use the gallery.
When will the gallery be up?
Have you thought any of this through at all?
No. We just want to see where this leads.
You're not very smart.
That's not a question.
