Convert just one percent of points on koodo community to koodo tab points for all members.

This is just an idea to give some perks to Koodo community members helping each other 24x7 seven days a week.

No no no no no please no

The last time the attached points to any monetary value, this community became a free for all of sheisters and people posting things like "because they rock".

Those same people you want to reward have feeds set up so if a question shows up in the category they're interested in, they get email alerts like this one.


My phone was going nuts.

No no no koodo no. That's not what this place is for.

Koodo shouldn't have to give us perks for us to want to post here.

It's nice that they have a few perks (Mobile Masters being one of them), but you should be posting here for the goodness of posting, not because there's something in it for you.

This community is just trying to help other customers and help other users so we can get the assistance we all need. This isn't for any "value" or "monetary purposes". The only perks is the Mobile Master system.

Not to mention that even 1% of my points would more than max out my tab balance.

Let's take one of the people who just gets points for saying something that added absolutely nothing to a conversation for example. Are they gaming the system to get points towards something? Idk. Have I seen them mirror and parrot other users throughout this forum? Yup. Are they aware that by doing so they are just making answered threads longer? Or that legitimate help seekers questions may be pushed to the bottom because their comment moved the thread to the top of the line? Idk. So is it fair that you ,PD, put out quality and earn your points while others earn them by playing games? Nope. Do I think you'd see an explosion of that behavior if you monetize the point system? Absolutely

Exactly as Chad put and just to add, To these ppl doing this don't think your fooling anybody as it is noticed from others in the community the ppl that are doing this & it does nothing but helps you lose the respect of your peers & the Koodo staff, YES Koodo notices this & it won't help you earn a spot as a Mobile Master or help you hold on to your spot as a Mobile Master. So even though it gets you points it's doing you no good as many of us are always watching & see every single useless answer you post.

If a tab point and monetary value are brought to this community, the original purpose of a community - helping each other, share the ideas... - will be lost, and will not function.
It is sad, but surely it happens.

Just to add. I'm not one to call ppl out but look at this profile

This user thought that points equal tab money and so spent a bit of time posting all kinds of praise. Even when he was told by three employees and MM that he was wrong he refused to believe it. It's a perfect example of why not to do this.

Ha something short and sweet.... All this would cause is nothing but spam on the forum. A lot of flaming or repeat posts would happen.
