It's not really a Promote My Post since it's really the thread itself being promoted. Haha.

I understand and sort of like the concept behind this feature. I hope we get more options to it in the future.

Would like to promote:
-existing threads
-for periods of time (like a week-month)

Like, if an existing thread (charity) has a contest running for a few weeks, it would be cool to be able to draw people to the thread only during the time of the contest.

I hear we'll eventually be able to promote existing threads.

Although, I wonder if people will avoid going to the promoted threads as a boycott statement if they don't like the feature... sad

I won't ever use it.

Especially since it doesn't do anything.

I'm never going to use it. I have much more valuable stuff to spend gc on. xD

I checked out art sops, surprisingly nobody is using it there. I thought it would be popular with that crowd.


Just think of this as a wake up call!

Good.
Because using that is just going to result in getting your thread downvoted...like mad. lol

Although the price is a little steep at 50-100GC, I understand why it would be priced as such.

You're paying to make your thread stand out. If everyone could afford it, threads with fancy banners would just fill the screen and then you'll realize that you spent money to make your thread look just like everyone else's.

Anyways, the price doesn't matter much to me because I rarely make threads and doubt I would make use of the feature. It would be nice to see more PMP banner options, though!

I am NEVER going to use it. emotion_donotwant

i might try it out once just to annoy people razz

first i'll have to hand out chill pills though


Ok, I will not use it as it is.

It has the detriment of costing way too damn much and can't be used on already created thread.

The ball has been dropped, yo.

Functionality for existing threads will be added in hopefully tomorrow. Just a couple more things that needed to be tweaked with it before it could go out.


good, the only thread I would want to use it on is my existing bump thread. Still 100 gc seems steep - many of us can't afford to actually buy gc, we only get the free gc from ads.

I can get 100 gc within a day or two just by watching the daily treat and offer videos. I agree that it's steep, but not ridiculously steep. I think 25-50 gc would be a better price.

While I have to admit I was able to make around 50gcash today just from videos too, not everyone has those videos available where they live.
I feel like I see more people who can't make that much versus those who can, that's why I think they should at least cut it in half.

I'm not sure what everyone's complaining about. I find it an alright feature.

All it really needs is a little less contrast, some different banner choices, and the ability to promote existing threads or posts.


It's too big.

I was expecting a different and/or larger icon for the thread title or something.

It takes up exactly the same amount of space as any other thread, promoted or not. The only reason why it looks bigger is because of the strong contrast. The padding of each thread listing is the same.

You right about one thing I only get 3 video a day before some thing nasty and horrible happen to a laptop or...2 So cut to 50 or maybe 25 would do nicely if they could or they would.

Well that is a good thing if you try to avoid nasty virus and worms that may lurk form those things.

i only watch the offer videos and daily treat videos
they tend to be brand advertising videos. stuff like beer, laundry detergent, ect.
i've never had any virus problems due to those videos.

I don't have a problem with the concept. I just don't like PMP because the backgrounds are garish, loud, and ugly. Sure, PMP threads stand out, but they stand out like sore thumbs or a large wart on your face.
