Was looking at my account and noticed the CR points I had, figured they meant something exciting. So I went searching on the forum, to find that they don't do squat except tell you how much time you spend on CR. lol

In my opinion, I think that we should be able to redeem them for either merch and CR bucks. Obviously, you would need quite a bit for the merch, but there's quite a few people on here that have ALOT, and I think they should be rewarded in some way.

Anyways, I'd like to you know what you guys think.
You don't have to agree, I'm just curious.

Thanks

CR Points have been always debated whether or not they should be used towards something. In the situation you're proposing, there's a bit of uncertainty with having a point exchange for physical items or anything of monetary value considering people already abuse the CR Point system...despite the fact that they currently have no purpose. I can say though, the discussion of CR Points gets revisited time and time again--so I think there is a strong possibility for another usage of the points system other than to function as barriers for creation of threads and other things.

Although it'd be nice, you can get CR Points by making posts, making threads, uploading pictures, etc., so if they were redeemable for something, I'd bet spam would go through the roof.

I'd totally take a month of premium for it, though. :3

Ya you're right about the spamming. Some would definitely take advantage and ruin it for the others.
But it's good to know that it's being revised and that's it's not totally out of the question of having them be used for something.
Thanks guys

Spam can be a big issue, but it would be nice if we could use the points in some way (other than being able to create new forum topics and groups). Crunchyroll keeps growing and changing so one day they might give the points another purpose. I might be wrong, but I think it's possible that once there are more premium members, people won't be able to use crunchyroll without having a membership. Then if all users were paying, spamming wouldn't be too big of a problem.

I have not spent a single buck on this site yet and I have quite a few points. I don't think it should give me benefits unless I have a subscription.

I wouldn't mind some kind of ranking system.

Well if they give out free mechandise they would lose lots of money. Now with th membership thata all right but the merchandise is way to much.

What about some sort of badge system instead of giving physical merchandise? For example you could earn special titles or icons to be displayed with your profile picture and name.

Hmm.

While I do agree that the whole CR points system should be redone - there are certain 'pitfalls' that you'd want to avoid as mentioned above (spam). I think physical merchandise is out of the question, but some sort of title/badge/icon system would be nice.

Since the points are fairly meaningless atm, I'd rather do away with the points and have a ranking system that would give us "Titles" (above our avatars). Or maybe karma bars that progress when other forum users find our posts helpful or meaningful.

In my opinion, I think we should be able to buy Titles/ Additional Profile Features with the CR points.
