You know I care less about prizes and shit. I think there actually should be more restrictions and fewer ways to get points tbh. At least untill there can be something done to help pay for them to be redeemed. Then they can be opened back up to help facilitate or accentuate other features of the site. Oh yea and why is it always dependent on actual monetary goods. Why not create digital "gifts" or custom things to be added to a users profile, or just something tangible. digital or physical. It really doesn't have to cost a shit load of money. Go get some cheap toys and stick a fuckn pwned.com sticker on it and sell it for some points. Just saying, as I have already said before. Just being able to use them is fun enough. By only having what is in the marketplace you limit the users ability to even want to obtain them or engage in activities to earn them. You set the bar to high imo. I'll pay 2,000 points for a cool check mark "verified" on my profile. Or 100 points for a sexy pic of your chest hair.. 150 if there's a nipple... It doesn't even have to be gaming related. I love those squishy little pigs that have slime shit come out their ass when you squeeze them. You know wtf I am talking about, you can pick them things up wholesale and paint a fuckn clown face on them and a target P on it's butt-cheek. 600 points easy. How about shit like glass tobacco pipes about 3ft tall.. >_> Little more expensive, but I'd rather have one of those then a fuckn xbl live. Diversify, restructure. <-- now that word comes into play, you see what I did there chief.
You get what I am saying I hope. Right now on this site it is like shopping at Macy's. When most of the consumers here are on a Walmart budget.
I already sold my soul sorry. but i will gladly pay you Tuesday for a xbl card today..
Donation jar, ppc ads, paid sponsor spots, sell Roy to cuba.. I have other ideas but I also have a headache right now.
Oh yea and thanks for listening. The new Live Feed / Friend's Feed WILL
**may want to add some checks in the http://pwned.com/privacysettings/
. Now that everyone can see everyone. Some will want to have some option to make it private. Yet still have their friends see it and the only thing in there is for the whole activity feed on/off.
***Hovering over a users pic in the live feed / friend feed, (ONLY IN THE LIVE FEED / FRIEND FEED! NOWHERE ELSE!!) should bring up some contextual shit and can quickly comment, message, add as friend, ect. Keep it simple. I'm a typical American, lazy. I don't really want to move from my user page, if I don't have to. Your profile is to far away to gtf off the user page anymore. Keep me there for as long as you can, keep me entertained. Dance monkey's dance.
