    Hi guys,

    Well, title says it all... Here is the plan...

    -> 1st -5th of every month, the nominations come in ( best threads in previous month)

    -> 6th - 10th. I will start a poll with top 5 nominations

    - > 11- 15 th. The best thread will be selected by the votes and few other factors. I will pay the price $50 to the thread starter. 50$ may seem less, but I will try to increase in future...

    This is simply to encourage the members to share more and acknowledge the best shares...


    So... What do you think guys??? If its ok, we shall run this from next moth... I mean next 10th a winner will be announced...


    Mods - If this breaks any rules please let me know...

    No, incentivising posts rarely works.

    All we'll get is a bunch of copy/pasted crap that people have found elsewhere trying to win the $50. Will be more work for the mods and it won't benefit anyone.

    Also, most people who share decent stuff around here will not be motivated by $50. The thing that people want to read (i.e. they actually work) will have made the OP substantially more than $50. The money would not motivate them at all. I would probably actually share less if I knew people were going to "vote" on it. Would also turn into a popularity contest, which no-one wants.

    I also think this will backfire. In the end there would be less value.

    It seemed like a good idea, but it can backfire.

    Won't work. This isn't Warrior Forum, people shouldn't be financially incentivised to help people out, that completely goes against the spirit of BHW.

    I understand your point but some people are motivated by recognition also, while the method may well be worth far more than $50 the recognition received for the share is actually more valuable to others.

    I do see your concerns but I like the OP's initiative.
