Coins for quality posts at Frihost





deanhills
It is obvious that some users at Frihost are spending great effort to write quality posts and that their efforts often go unnoticed. As a token gesture to reward them for their effort, and hopefully to promote quality posting at Frihost, I've decided I will be gifting coins to authors who have made quality posts during the month of March. The value of coins will vary from 10 to 50 coins at a time depending on the quality of the post that has been made. Not all quality posts can be rewarded of course, so my focus will be on authors with English as a Second Language as well as exceptional quality posts by authors with English as a native language.



As per the suggestion of GhostRider, here is a list of posts that have been rewarded with coins:

Pretty Nice Contest Dean. Will try to make your pocket empty. Smile

But how could you find authors with English as a Second Language and when will you declare your contest result on the daily basis, weekly or at the end of month?

Thanks rjraaz. I'm not going to make formal announcements. I'm planning to donate the coins randomly and immediately. I don't propose to make a great fuss out of it. I may write a short post if it warrants it, or I may not if I feel it is unnecessary. The PM attached to the donation will communicate my appreciation for the quality of the post.

It's something I've felt like doing for a very long time. There is many a time when I've noticed someone really creating a great post or trying very hard. So for the month of March I will be paying coins to show my appreciation for quality effort.

I think you must have to post links of some posts as an example for that, because rules and guidelines are not able to explain themselves until unless those can be implemented practically. May be i am wrong but it is my personal opinion.
deanhills
@rjraaz. OK. I've made a few donations tonight. I won't list all of the posts, nor the value of the donations I've made, but if you were looking for examples the following are posts that I enjoyed reading. The authors obviously put some thought into their writing and took great care with their posts.

@Deanhills Thanks to share those links. And i think you really choose right post to award. All the three deserves your donation.
Ghost Rider103
Great idea.

Though maybe make a list of all the usernames you have donated to in your first post? Would give them even more appreciation/publicity.

Just a thought Smile

pretty nice suggestion even it is not bad to include the post link as well.

Thanks Dean! Very Happy Another 50 coins in my pocket. Hurray! Dancing

@rjraaz. Speaking of efforts, your English is getting better than that first time I read your posts. I think it was in Philosophy and Religion forum, something about drawing some red lines in the bathroom(?). That was when you still had an 'Avatar' for an avatar. Wink

And 'speaking' of avatar, yours is really my favorite!!! Very Happy I enjoy watching it running in circles. Won't you like to give it some rest?haha.

Its a sign of continuous progress and improvement. Second thing is that its not a circle, its a Moon. Anyways thanks to liking it.

I'm also worried about that poor wolf. Has to be exhausted by now .... haha .... and yes, agreed, it's obvious rjraaz has improved during the time he has been here. Did miss that post of his you referred to though.

"Running in circles" means running in loops, or running endlessly, or running without going to the bathroom. That's English Lesson 101 for you. hahaha. Laughing

Would be interesting to see what the effect would be if the moon were to be moving instead of the wolf. Great Avatar however. One of these days we probably should have an Avatar contest as well. I was thinking about it, but then thought that Avatars should be given a rest for a while following Peterssidan's contest. Reminds me, I still have a number of golden oldie avatars I've copied that I'd like to post up in my blogs. Smile

Just noticed the thread is already in the Featured Discussions.
Frihost is definitely going to have quality posts this March. Very bright idea Dean. Wink

What type of effect that you would be interested to my philosophy behind Avatar or effect on Wolf.
Anyways i think original thread is not about my Avatar.

To be honest, it is not really my idea. It's been around from the beginning of time at Frihost. Bondings also mentioned he wanted to do that when he was working on his coins idea. So it is really his idea from the beginning of time.

I remember when I first joined in 2008, I had been given Frih$ by either Helios or James007 for a post in the General Chat Forum. That quite bowled me over at the time. Particularly since I'd just received my first tackle in the Phil&Rel Forum and it had completely thrown me for a loop. Then the discussion we had about English a couple of days ago made me think to just jump in and do it. I did want to put my coins to use in a contest and this seemed to be a good idea for doing that. Bondings as per usual was super generous to allow me to do it, so thanks to him for borrowing his idea for a month. Angel

Hmm.. that's probably one of Frihost secrets of success. They know how to appreciate quality posts. I'd suggest Frihost should have a donate button instead of your typical like button like from that of other sites...... Wait! we already have one. haha. silly Razz

Phil&Rel is "The Point of No Return". One of Frihost's secrets to success. Wink Some sort of booby trap.
I remember having exchange debates with Bikerman the first day I came here. Didn't even notice I already have 45 coins. That forum is soo scandalous. Laughing

Need not to write on any particular subject just do your posting work as usual, that is just to create a new topic or to post reply to any of the discussion of your interest. Dean will select any one of them for reward.

Exactly. It is not a competition of one post that is better than the other. It is appreciating what you contribute as something of quality and value. And rewarding the special effort you have put in your post. Smile

Thanks to all those who have made some great quality posts.
