New Form of "Ups"

With the new Annual Membership a lot of users will be using their gold ups, so it will pretty much defeat the purpose of gold ups, imo.

So, I think, a very devilish way to solve this future problem is to create a new form of ups that is sort of like a super sticky that will be higher then gold ups. Maybe like Platinum ups? Something along that line. You could charge twice as much as gold ups and make much more money

Good idea?

And yes, I just got this idea at 5:30 in the morning, summer ftw.

i agree with you. By including the "gold ups" with the annual membership, it does defeat the purpose of them.

By having a sort of "platinum up" the site would earn more money, and the threads that want more attention will be treated as something special.

Doesn't that ultimately devalue the ASM, then?

I wouldn't say that it devalues the ASM or the Gold Ups. The amount of people who will become ASMs is far smaller than those who visit the BST area, as well as the amount of people who will buy more than 2 Gold Ups per year.

Remember, gold ups only last a few days, so over the course of the year the "extra" gold ups will hardly dilute the value of the Gold Ups.

Though I do think platinum ups sounds kinda like a good idea. I mean, go into the electro BST thread and you'll likely see 20+ gold up'd guns. For some people, paying the extra... say... $10 to have their gun near the very top is worth it to them.

no way platinum ups would be cool, have like 2 days instead of 4 and a little more than half to encourage more people to pay for gold ups not plat.
