Yeah...points are a paint to distribute, honestly.
And the amount of work that would take would be too much.
But do consider that people take longer because of writers' block, or what have you.
I know I sometimes take more time than normal to think on a better post than what I initially had in mind.
Quality over quantity, little sister.
I feel 3 days is a decent balance. Teams have stayed active. Any less, and it would be too demanding. Any more, and it would kill the flow. I know some teams are slower than others...but that's why we're starting up invitation only teams.
For those of you who post quickly, you all can join forces and make a team together if you want.
But adding anymore incentive to post would just hinder the site. We already have the badges, which is already a complex system of awesome to be had if you post often.
If that doesn't work, I doubt anything else will.
