I was thinking we could create a site currency or "fun money" called Phuks Buks.

Here's the bullet points:

  1. You must purchase Phuks Buks with real money (like a donation)
  2. Phuks Buks cannot be exchanged for anything and is absolutely worthless
  3. The exchange rate of real money to Phuks Buks will be random (a random number generator will determine how many Phuks Buks you get regardless of donation size. Therefore eliminating any sort of link between money spent and Phuks Buks)
  4. How will you receive Phuks Bux? I don't know a badge, or something, or nothing.

Why? It's completely silly and pointless.

Part of the tip goes to phuks, like reddit, and the user can cash out the rest.

Hold on. Reddit users get paid? I remember Reddit gold, but I don't remember any cash. I haven't been there in quite some time though.

At first thought I would be against it, to stem the abuses and vote rigging that may happen for profit. I want phuks to be profitable, of course, so I would purchase some to buy another user, say @Mattvision @ScorpioGlitch a gilded username on his posts. But, I'm easy. I'll go with whatever.

like reddit, but unlike them, then user can cash out the rest.

Oops updated. Reddit doesnt payout to users. They keep it all. I would eventually like to see a direct tipping mechanism from user to user.

I don't know about @ScorpioGlitch, but I definitely think my posts are worth money. In fact, if I don't start getting regular pay and health benefits, I'm going on strike!

Can we pay you to go on strike? I'd like to see what that involves.
