  Old  Suggestion: Give All Post Money To Charity

Few people actually collect the money from posts, and I believe fewer care about it. I can only speak for myself, but getting a message saying that you just gave 5 cents to charity feels a lot better than a message saying that you are 1/200 closer to maybe cashing out 10 bucks one day.

In order to "clear the tab", we have to make a payment to reset the balance. While I get what you are saying, I'd like to leave it up to individual user to make that decision.

So when you reach the minimal pay-out level and are rewarded for it, you are free to send the little donation to a charity of your choice.

Cashing out 10 bucks one day is still better than not cashing out anything at all.

Not quite true. The plugin doesn't actually handle the payment transaction itself..

I think BoyWonder's suggestion is brilliant.

  Old  At least give the option.

If vbulletin allows it, why don't you at least give an option to give it to various charities directly. At least giving us the option. Or maybe we can be allowed the option to donate our post rewards into a fund for charity water for instance.

True for the second part, not for the first. For resetting the balance, I have to confirm the payment as made. I don't want to get into the backend of our system publicly, however.

As much as I equally like the idea, one that potentially deserves its place in the future, this is not the core business of ours. This is a promotional program that works exactly how it was designed: it allows members to earn rewards for valuable contributions. Members can decide for themselves how they want to handle the cash once they get to the payout level.
