How would you use uerspoints on a website?

From: Rod-Lists 
I've been reading about point systems for website but not sure how users would cash in so to speak.

=============================================================== From: Dave Brockman ------------------------------------------------------ -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 I guess it depends on the website. I've seen it used for ratio improvement, custom titles, advancement in user "ranks", access to any "premium" content the site may offer, boosts in online games... that give you any ideas?

=============================================================== From: Rod-Lists ------------------------------------------------------ Some. One very particular use ccase would be to advance the the prestige class of members who helped on the site. In that case higher prestige class helps in character builds for a game. But other types of sites I'm still thinking. Maybe on a news site mods could earn access to premium content. ----- Dave Brockman wrote:

She's the person who popularized a bunch of the "gamification" stuff, and though I think there's a ton of rediscovering what was already there (ie: Toastmasters has been doing this leveling-up thing for a long time), it's a good intro to ways you might structure incentives to customers.
