E point encouragement

I think to encourage people to buy more epoints, there should be a bonus system in place.

So it would work something like this:

Buy 10 epoints, receive 10 epoints
Buy 20 epoints, receive 22 epoints
Buy 50 epoints, receive 55 epoints.

And so forth.

That's another good idea made in Gray's industries :)

Okay, I'll do something like this!

What happens then when someone wants to cash in their ePoints? Thibault will have to keep track of how many were actually paid for vs. how many were free.

It does not change anything (at a first sight)... Do you have an example?

I buy 50 ePoints for 50 Euros then ask to cash in my 55 ePoints. Will you give me 55 Euros? If so, I now have an easy way to make money ;-)

Well, fortunately it doesn't work this way :)

I'm not talking about prizes, I'm talking about when a member wants his or her money back from FICGS. If you don't keep track of how many of each member's ePoints are paid for and how many are bonus points, you will be paying back more than you received.

Actually that's the case for a while :) .. And that's the aim... I hope to offer more and more prizes (Epoints or Money) in the future, even if it is quite slow for the moment. So I think that Garvin's idea is compatible with the current rules (by the way I offered many times up to 25% Epoints more when buying some)

OK, then it's not a problem.

No encouragement is currently being offered :s

From the my messages page=

Until october 1st 2011, you'll be given 10% E-Points more when buying at least 20 Epoints, 25% E-Points more when buying at least 50 Epoints. It is also possible to win E-Points by becoming an affiliate.

So I understand this correctly. If I buy 50 epoints, I get an extra 12.5 epoints, is that correct?

That's right...
