Ah, alright. So perhaps the best approach for TCG would be to pretty much copy CC's point system (post-threadmaking redemption), since in its current form, Winter, who posts the most threads there, seems to be doing worse than CCers (for example, Dova has like 3 million to Winter's 130k. Not sure if either have been spending lots of points but I still highly doubt Dova has put in ~23x the effort Winter has into this forum in its entirety). I imagine other TCG posters are even worse off.
Just want to say that I have no idea where at least 3 million of my points came from. Most of the rest of it I got from tournaments, cashing in reviews, a lot of CC posts etc. but the main portion I just found on my account during/after Halloween 2016. I remember logging on in November and suddenly noticing I had a couple million points, and had absolutely no idea where they came from.
I don't mind if they're removed; I would've only used it for competition rewards anyway.
I really can't think of anything else to do with points on a forum, but cutting off a lot of them is a start for opening up those doors.
Perhaps a form of consultation for RPs and such? Problem with that is that people are too nice and help anyway, so scratch that. Now, if only we had a custom format...
