Hi all, For a project I'm working on, we're setting up a user reputation system where users gain experience points and achieve levels based on desired actions on a site. We also want to set up a system of basically being able to trade experience points for currency redeemable for free product. Can anyone give me implementation pointers and/or examples, the more specific the better? Pitfalls to avoid? Also looking for good, well-referenced articles or slideshows on how to set up currencies in social game design and/or reputation systems, and the need to have separate "experience points" that interact with game currency that can be traded.
Thank you! Shara
