PD's double up on Forum

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

So last year during December, they rewarded double the amount of forum satoshi for active members of the Primedice community. This was quite a thing for quite a lot of members who always come here everyday to make their contribution to this great community. However, there are always floors to doubling up rewards, such as farming the forum to earn rewards and just reckless spam comments that can often saturate the forum now and then.

Did users feel the forum was actually better in any way whatsoever when they did double up or do you think they were just coming to take advantage of the system during that time?

When I look into this touchy subject, I did not really see much constructive comments on the forum during that time. The issue I arose with a lot of people was that users were creating topics that were made at least several times. I'm not too bothered if there are 2 threads very similar, but when it comes to threads which resort to the same sorts of conversations, that is just spam. My thoughts are that it never helped even doubling up.

Any thoughts you could share about last year?

Thanks everyone!

90% used it as a way to farm satoshi. Looking at most of the replies during the time period, that was very evident. I’m part of forums that don’t have a reward system that get a lot more traffic and a lot more fresh content, but that’s because they are setup in a way that isn’t talking about one specific thing. There’s only so many things you can talk about on a forum dedicated to one specific way to gamble. It’s probably why stake has more posts and more unique threads. I think the double pay per post was a decent idea, in theory, but it should have been only available to people that have a lot of posts, that primedice has already deemed as qualified users.

This Forum when it was in its first days on was a place of mystery. There are several threads that are really interesting like the Ms. PD competition, etc. .
I use this forum to share ideas that might help others at the same time, get some satoshi as a reward.

To rephrase the topic and same bs would be seen but in another form of sentence or idea. 
This may be what drived our top posters(informative, constructive) away from this forum.

Oh by the way, according to UltraChief, if you think a post is a spam, don't hesitate to use the report button.

You have the point mate. Promo was taken advantage. But I guess not all intentionally posted same contents but just a few were related. Maybe they weren't aware that same contents exist. Specially when they are new. But I believe Moderator here did a good job in monitoring contents.

the forum activity during that period was bigger than usual, many players started to post here, and the forum was so active, many members didnt focus on what they write and they started to post random things just to get double rewarded ! it's good to double reward, but it's bad for the forum contents.

So given the fact that some people said it was good to have double ups and some say it was pointless, what I'm asking is that overall, was it worth doing that and if they were to do such a thing at the end of this year or something, do anyone believe that PD will get something constructive out of this or would it just go to pot like last time?

well if the contents are good , it can be good for the site, the topics will attract many people to join the site, but if its just like the last time, then i will be nothing more than a spammy topics.

Well yesterday I was upset because a user could not be bothered to look up content and decided to create a topic about choose a charity. That's what I mean is that I reported it but because the forum is slow, it takes a while for content to be brought down. I guess in a way it doesn't really matter if they double up because the same thing happens even when there is no form of promotion.

I admits that I'm here to earn some satoshi I think 70% is for some satoshi and 20% why I'm here is for information that we can't find
on site also 10% for the challenges. Yes forum satoshi make people spammy but on me I've never copy people reply or topics.

I keep on wondering , how much does the forum really pay because when you look at what so many people are writing am wondering is there a point when the forum does not have ctive members because going through around, there are so many people who are able to earn from the forum and this is from as little as one posts how ever there is a condition and they are written on the rules of the forum and thats why I keep on wondering, what happens to those who break the rules, because the moderator is suppose to filter the bad people here , by giving warnings and so on and so forth

at a glance, there is indeed a lot of content that is almost similar and even with the same purpose and the same direction of conversation, but sometimes each person's evaluation has its own version.
at first glance it does seem to lead to the same discussion but actually it is different in terms of meaning, we have a moderator in this forum, and surely they will surely know if there is indeed the same topic (spam) either in the original or not, which is certainly our moderator certainly have a fairly accurate consideration in the assessment in our forum. leave it entirely to the moderator, and rest assured, they are quite skilled in their fields

I am sure that many users go to forums just to get paid, so do I. honestly the first time I got to know the forum I only came to the forum for weekly challenges only, after I learned that there was payment for every post made, I became diligent to the forum, but I would not violate the forum rules, because here have rules.

I just don't understand why users come here to be paid rather than be constructive because as I see this... this is not a job, more or less a form of rakeback when you gone and lost hundreds of dollars in the casino. As far as I'm aware, hundreds of users here have lost their accounts because they lack being constructive and helpful for other users. This is more of a place for helping users and giving your own personal feedback... offering suggestions/changes. Displaying unique bets and the often joke or two.

They cracked down on the forum a lot over the years and my opinion is that they have done an excellent job in that!

Humans are an animal of greed, so they will definitely want to farm the double up satoshi awarded for posts. Yea, I know Primedice forum is way behind Stake's forum, but it is the normal thing.

There are more giveaways in Stake forum, there is sportbook give away in stake. There are events upon events. There is even high roller challenges. We cannot also leave out the streams, and different players that don't even play dice. What about the Telegram challenge and the Discord's giveaway. 

All these things have contributed to the activeness of Stake. Not only just doubling up. 

Doubling up satoshi will bring and birth abuse.

The crew of Primedice should know that we only have one game here, and 12 games + sportbook at stake. Primedice forum always being silent is a normal thing and shouln't be a thing of surprise. Doubling up will make people login and abuse the feature, and after the time of doubling up elapses, they leave and go back to other forums especially stake.

I agree, there is no need to need any more than what they currently offer, I think anybody asking for more is indeed a little too greedy for their own good. Even doubling the forum rewards, i generally feel that it was not needed but they did as a kind gesture and nothing more :D

I agreed human are animal of greed, you will see the farming account flooding the forum just get the fun out of everyone who actually doing great work that maintain this community forum fun. Just a suggestion, maybe give the rewards to user that has PD account months before the double posting rewards go live a.k.a link to pd account for verification.

Not sure if rules already implement.

Whenever they increase the amount that people are being paid, there are 2 results that can happen.

1 - It results in spamming and lower quality posts. This is because people make the most of the double pay and they will do anything in their way to get a few extra satoshi

2 - Quality increases. People have a higher incentive to post, so perhaps they are more likely to talk about more relevant subjects

I disagree with paying people to post in the forums. The forum just gets filled up with mundane comments. If somebody is passionate enough about a topic they will post here regardless of the payment system. Those who care enough to respond will respond. THe number of postings will be less, but at least what remains will be genuine.

primedice offers only one game, and automatically, the topic of one thing, may be limited in number. and the biggest possibility is why there are two topics that are almost similar or can be said to be very similar, I believe it happened outside the deliberate factor, maybe someone does not know that the topic he will post has been posted by someone a few months ago. indeed accidental factors or ignorance of someone who might result in spam
