Hello everyone, I currently run a site that serves as a post exchange, for every one post a user makes on my forum they can redeem one post on theirs. I have been considering make a big change but am unsure if it is the right move for my site, the users, and the staff. So far it has been working alright but I am starting to notice a huge drop off including from those that were extremely loyal. I have been considering giving all users a monthly allowance, they can redeem posts with this allowance with no requirement for posting to receive the posts desired. I currently have it setup on a points system, you receive 1 point for every one post which can be redeemed as I stated. I feel that there are some issues with the current setup and the big one is that a user is required to make posts to receive posts. There are people (me being one of them) that does not want to spend a ton of time making forum posts to receive the same, especially if the site's job is to offer posting services. I feel that a posting service should offer services with little to nothing in return, it is their job to give clients quality forum posts. I would like feedback on what everyone's view is. Should I remove the requirement to make forum posts in order to receive a service? Should it be a posting service that works off a monthly allowance, say 150 points which can be converted 30-50 posts at a time?
