I like it i mean sometimes i get stuck with a 100 g cash and its a nice way to liven things up especially if you have a popular thread. sweatdrop

I think that some users will enjoy the extra colors, but I really like the look of the forums as they are now, and I just really hope that PMP doesn't detract from the threads that didn't spend GC.

Potentially, it could be a good way for Gaia to make some more money, but I don't see it being very popular after the first wave of the exciting new feature.

So you spent a little GCash to make your thread look a little prettier. Big deal!

I'm not gonna be using it anytime soon. Rather hold onto my cash in case I get more.

I wont know until I see it in action. My only thing is if its not for a specific post shouldn't it be "promote my thread" ?

@Monochrome Spring: Thats what i was afraid of , of the tool not being of any use i mean a thread i think is valued on what is inside not on the outside or that it shines or something.


i mean it shoulds chelsea but its true, you know what i'm talking about?

@Deliacroix : exactly ! see! of no use to you

User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show.Unless it changed within the last 10 minutes or so, you can only PMP on thread creation. You can't edit an already created thread and promote it later. I feel like this was a mistake on Gaia's part. I highly doubt people are going to recreate their large threads to use PMP.

Also, I still have questions about PMP, and it seems like they're not answered anywhere.

- How long does it last? Is it permanent?
- Does it keep threads on the first page (so you don't have to bump them anymore)?
- Will there ever be more than 3 colors?
- Can you ever un-promote your post at will?

Also I feel like 100GC is a little steep. Unless it's permanent, I suppose. But then you run into a bunch of inactive PMP threads stuck on the first page for however long.

I just don't think this was thought through completely on Gaia's side.

(edit: At current, someone has used PMP in the chatterbox if you'd like to see it in action)

i agree with you also it would be nice if we could upload some images ourselves to truly get the " custom look"

Then i think it would be worth 100 GC and also i think there should be an option of a gold exchange rather than only GC

Posts with PMP don't get stuck on the first page so don't worry 'bout that ;D They're just like regular threads, except you get some different coloring for yours so it sticks out like a sore thumb and people will look at it.

100gc is a good price I think. It makes people stop and really consider if they really want to use GC on a shiny thread decoration and not just do it for kicks.
