    What sort of growth in users & trades can be shared?  The site feels more popular than when I joined in January, but I don't have data to back that up (aside from more games being offered).  As for trading itself, I assume it has gone up, but I am not sure what sort of volumes are occuring.

    Like the others have said, only you can tell whether the site needs another currency injection via a sale on credits.

     

    I know there are those who get twitchy when "points" or "credits" and "selling" get mentioned in the same sentence (thankz Gooz) but if the site needs more in circulation to grease up the trading wheels then I'm all for it. Again, only you guys have access to that data.

    Thanks for the feedback, wanted to gauge the interest.  We are keeping a close eye on things and currently the economy is healthy, we do not have an overabundance of credits in the system.

     

    We don't have any immediate plans for a credit sale, but we'll keep it in mind as we dial in the pricing on the games.  Our goal is to keep the pricing tight and only have "flips" show up when we price games that way on purpose.

    There are some good points made about the credit sale.  I can say that I am generally a tycoon with credits but not on Leap.  My points have been up and down after that first month of signing up.  Not sure if that is saying, time for a credit sale since some traders need currency.


     


    Leap - Thanks for your consideration.  I'll buy into the credit sale again either way even if I have a bunch when announced.  Last time, I had alot of credits.  Right now, Gamer is broke.  : (

    Having another sale might be a good way to attract some of those Facebook/Twitter followers that have not signed up here yet. There are thousands of them who have not signed up yet who might be more tempted if you promote the sale on Facebook/Twitter.



     


    I could get behind a credit sale if it was only for new user accounts. That would also be a self-correcting problem.


     


    Keep in mind that selling credits shouldn't necessarily be viewed as a way to make money. Leap brings in dollars per transaction. If they put money from credit sales (I won't even call it revenue) into an account then possibities open up. When we lose people, they could actually offer to buy it back and avoid an inflation spike. For the Goozex refugees among us imagine this: The ability to both grow and shrink the currency according to the user base. Not saying leap is doing that but saying they could. Offering credits at a discount makes that more difficult.


     


    You wouldn't have to keep it at 100% of currency levels, you could borrow against the account to run promotions or grow the business etc . . . but the idea would be to keep enough cash on hand to buy back currency (say at 90% of what you sold it) not all the time, but when you thought it was necessary.   I would, based on VGFive history, cap the amount of currency any one individual could sell.
