@Thalia we felt that it made sense being at the bottom because in theory you would have read whatever you're commending before you decide to commend it, and not have to scroll back up. :)

In that case you should just put +rep and all the other buttons at the bottom too tbh

Put them on the left and move the mod tools to the right. Make it look nice for non-mods, and full for the mods. c:

Well +Rep is bright pink :) So it draws your eye to it. Like I said before though, we also wanted to make sure that it was easy to find since it's a new feature and people aren't used to it. We may alter it in the future once more people know that the feature exists.

Thank you for the feedback though Thalia and mastrer! Definitely keeping our ears open, just wanting to explain our thoughts on putting the button there. :)

Keep the feedback coming guys! Would love to hear more thoughts.
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!

I'm happy with the work that the devs have done :) I was getting worried that they've forgotten about us!
If I helped you out, be sure to throw me a +Rep!

In case I didn't make myself clear, I think you're charging too much (the same as Reddit, and there you get a lot more) and it annoys me that you're in a way taking all the money of which at least a part should go to your content creators. I'd rather send someone some money through PayPal than buy a commendation and give that to them. Maybe a system where guide authors can actually get a part of the share (in coin) would be more interesting.

Reddit is a social network, it's okay to charge fully for that as there aren't really creators, just people communicating with each-other. The MOBAFire network, on the other hand, is based around content created by some of the users. So I think it would be unfair to generate full profits from commendations given to the authors. In my opinion, MOBAFire is more like YouTube than it is like Reddit. YouTube pays its creators.

It also strikes me as if forum regulars aren't your main source of content (could be wrong there though, maybe I'm the only slacker), while the benefits of Prime do target forum users for the most part. So the authors that will receive Prime points probably won't really use them anyway.

This website has really been great to me over the last few years, and I wouldn't mind giving back in a monetary way, but not like this. I'd rather just have a donate button somewhere to be honest.

Last bit of critique from me ^^

Thanks for the great feedback Latest Legend, I definitely needed that clarification because I wasn't really sure what you were trying to say before, haha.

Very interesting ideas for sure. We will be sure to look into them / keep them in mind. I like your thoughts but they would definitely add a lot of complications into the system.

I would also like to point out that there are some pretty big benefits to guide authors if you commend them. It gives their stream significant exposure if they're a streamer (which a lot of guide authors are) and it gives them a highlight in the guide listings which can help guides that aren't at the top. There is also a guide author specific feature - the ability to collapse comments on your guides.

I'm not exactly going to try to "sell" this to you. Either you like the features or you don't, and that's OK either way. We see Prime as a fun way to support a site you love and get some nice perks in return. We appreciate everyone willing to support us, but if you don't like the features that's fine too.

That being said, we would love to hear if there's any features of Prime that you think should be included. If we are not Reddit, then what can we provide with our Prime features that you think would be cool and fun?

Thanks again for the in-depth feedback. We really do appreciate hearing your thoughts and you wrote them up well. :) Cheers!
Thanks to GrandMasterD for my sig!

My main issue with the commend button is that it looks as if it's part of the post itself and is isolated from the rest of the buttons

After everything is all said and done, this is exciting. This site needed a face-lift.
