I see @******* 's credit system and wanted to know if there's anything else like it.
Also, ******* (or anyone who uses it) is this possible:
1. use credits for upgrades?
can a user trade points in to upgrade their membership to one of my "upgrade" accounts, instead of paying? and can it be a recurring trade in? so if they trade in 1000 points to go "ads free" for a year, can it be done automatically each year? or will it simply expire and they can do it again?
2. get points for featured threads?
can a user get points/credits each time they get a thread featured using Brogan's Featured thread addon?
3. trade in for gifts:
user has x amount of credits and is able to trade them in for a reward? so I'll have a page of things that people can trade their points in, for example, i might put a few $50 gift cards on there at a price of 5000 points - then users can trade their 5k points for a gift card.
4. trade points in for paypal money?
can a user trade their points in and request to "get paid?" - with admin approval, of course, no automatic payments as that could be a huge nightmare for someones bank!
