I think this is a good idea. Are you planning on implementing this in December? Might be a good thing to have in place before the Steam Christmas sale.

If I can I'd suggest making the credit system possible to make games unretired too, maybe 50 points is too little. Maybe 80 points to unretire a game? within limtis ofc games that don't need to be stay retired. But those who get retired because of complaints could perhaps.

Whatever works for you guys works for me. Seconding the idea to be able to "buy" games out of retirement.

Some people are gonna think I'm nuts, but how about microtransactions to buy additional credits, too? If someone really wants a trainer for a game but wouldn't have the credits otherwise, it could help monetize the voting system so that you've got an additional, diversified revenue stream to help offset the costs associated with development and maintenance on a very, very large library of games. Make the price for credits inexpensive enough and it'd be an attractive option for people who want to put their money where their mouth is, without relying on donations. Just a suggestion.

I can see the problem in that some people would feel SUPER SPECIAL EXTRA ENTITLED if they bought credits and used them on a game that couldn't get a trainer, but let's be real, there are whiners and, I mean, to be brutally frank about it, folks who don't do something as simple as run the trainer as an admin or the like, already - from a business standpoint it seems more practical to implement a system like this that people who do care can use, and ignore the dummies when they don't get their way. They're only buying credits, after all, not buying a guarantee that a trainer's going to get made, and they only need to buy credits if they spend their "natural" credit accumulation elsewhere.

Thoughts pwiz?

User: Agreed, they already wrote that it would be possible to buy additional credits for money.

I think this is a great idea. My two cents.

Edit- I also like the idea of maybe using points to get games out of retirement. That would give you guys here a gauge to see just how many people would like to unretire a game. Maybe something to consider.

Seems viable. I recommend a test period/beta to verify if the system works. But a good idea nevertheless. As to the previous poster i concur with the retired games as well. It would logically be applicable.

If we take the time and resources to have this coded then it WILL be used. That's why I posted here first.
