    Forum Points?

    5 Forums posts to get one download link?
    Is it possible to put a system like this into this "Simple Machines" forum?
    Or if you make a tutorial/post a legitimate download, you could get extra points or something.
    To prevent spam posts, make posts at least 10 words, 40 characters.

    I think he mean 5 posts per download link. Anyways I don't think this type of system can be implemented into this simple machines forum. Also im not sure if this was your intention, but I think this would reduce inactive users. We currently only have about 150 active people out of 9000. I think setting minimum download requirements would increase activity on the forums. This would solve the sites problem of people just registering, downloading hacks, then leaving the community for good. The idea needs some work, but I support it.

    Then think of all the spam! >

    If all those 8.850 members had to post 5 posts to to download 1 thing, and they maybe wanted to download 10 things.

    Math:
    8850*5*10=44250 posts. And you really think that we moderators and admins want to delete all the spam?!

    Hawt.

    Then make a requiremnt of 1 reputation to download, so there won't be any spam.

    Rep = real contribution aka posting things which helps the community.

    Yes it is possible. But no I will not do it. People should be able to do whatever they like. If they only want to download then it is okay. I am not convinced of systems like this. Everything should remain public available for learning purposes.
    You suck. Suck a little less and become a fan on Facebook.

    I guess so, but we need a way to reduce inactive members. :-\
