# Points exchange

Hi everyone,

 This is regarding the points exchange system. As you know, the points needed to redeem anything has gone up by a lot. This actually wouldn't stop the cheaters. All they need to do is ask more. Maybe instead of raising the number of points needed for redeeming the e-books, you know come up with a quiz about 3 to 4 questions that test some of the techniques they know and should be answered in a day to minimise any help given. What do you think?


Yours Sincerely,

Ian

Ian,

We will take something like this into consideration. Thanks for the suggestion. However when dealing with cheating reduction we would be hesitant to implement any measures that inconvenience the overwhelming majority of honest people who do not cheat.

I kind of like your idea but it would just be too much stress of the moderators. I agree that the current prices or things are too high and that cheaters need to be punished, but there is no efficient way to do it yet. Unless many of the problems can have a random number generator aspect then problems are sure to occur.
