    Maybe extra web hosting space or extra bandwidth of the sort? Like for example: every 100 points give them an extra 10 megs? I'm not saying use that for sure because the numbers might be too big for you or something, but just as an example

    I would say use the points to get a free domain.

    I think you guys should have a candy shop here..

    Or maybe we can just have it so you have a graphics team and they make stuff.. sell it for points.. haha.. thats actually a cool idea.. (<- Talking to myself)

    If you really want a candy shop, I would like to be a seller.. and same with the Graphics lol

    People can sell stuff for points, pay for services, people can open up shops (should have a forum for people to open "service shops")

    now i know staff will like this: allowance! Every week they are paid a certain amount of points...just a lil bit more for their hard work ;)

    Domains are definitely an idea we're leaning towards... the only problem is spam control. :)

    I think giving a domain away for points is ok but I think 1500 points might be a bit to low to tell you the honest truth, if you want to cut spam out than make it so you have to have 4 or 5000 points. Anyone can spam 1500 points easy. I say make people work for it.

    Well im new here so I probably cannot vouch for other members but what I would like to see points put towards would be *special* services.

    Another member suggested graphics design. Although this wouldnt help me considering that im a professional designer i'd imagine that it would help alot of people when it comes to making a website. Of course, they would have to be hosted here and the ammount of points considerable but still, a good idea yes? :)

    Another service could be perhaps the coding of a small script or access to a script database? Members could possibly *pay* for certain scripts that have been coded or made especially for x10 for their own personal use.

    And also, domains would be nice aswell :)

    Hope you like my suggestions
    Chris

    Well I know a site which uses points and a shop, and with points you can buy themes, themes are around 5000 points, and themes are commercial, not a simple theme, really nice themes, which costs around 200$ in cash, so what is the problem on that site ,it is spamming..Indeed Free Domain is a good idea, but when you start offering something for points, people will start spamming... So think before about that then maybe offfering something for points.
