[REQ]$$$ - Virtual Stock Market MOD for the Point System $$$

My users gets Points for participating in my community (forum, referrals, adding reviews, photos etc) - they can buy things in the virtual shop or put them in the virtual bank to gain interest. I notice people are getting involved in making more and more MODs for the points system (lottery mod | quiz mod etc). So here is my idea of what would be a great add-on.

I'd like to see a MOD created where users can invest their points in admin-defined virtual stocks/shares. Other sites do this but not very well cause it isn't integrated with a community feel. http://www.popex.com and http://www.bbc.co.uk/celebdaq

For example if you have a Sports Site you could have stocks for Liverpool | Man Utd | Arsenal | Barcelona | Real Madrid etc...

If you have a music site then Oasis | U2 | REM.... well you get my drift.

Based on the real 'but not much fun' ;-) stock market - shares go up when people buy them and go down when people sell them. It should also be possible for mods/admins to mass adjust shares based on 'events' - such as a team beats another team, wins league/cup or a band announces a tour or reaches No1 in the charts.

Its quite in-depth but Its quite simple really. Anyone interested just PM me.

this is a good idea and is what i also want.
I am doing that type of thing now, but with music...e.g if an artist goes in @ #1 their price (share value) goes up and so on. The only thing is it is hard to admin.
Does anyone have any other easier ways??

BTW does anyone happen to know what software BBC use for celebdaq and if its available? :D
I know there is a stockmarket mod but that only increases/decreases on the popularity of shares

lets get some momentum going and some ideas in and how exactly it will work... and maybe a MOD creator here will be interested in this and will help in creating this.

Cash Mod v2.0.0, while not built for this purpose, will have this feature built right in.

I would love to have something like this. I think DigitalBackSpin forums (www.digitalbackspin.com/phpbb2) has something like this but I would like someone to make an official mod... that'd be sweet! oh, and it should be on the FORUM COMPANIES, maybe...

you know, with the points system forums become like a virtual marketplace, i've had people selling games left and right on my forums, and they aren't even all that big yet... so anyway, a few more big comprehensive mods like this that resemble the bank, shop, and lottery mods would be more than welcome!!!

one catch:

it's not points system

i honestly don't know what happened to eXplosive, so i'm deving my own Cash Mod from scratch, that i hope will surpass the previous Points System made by eXplosive.

please feel free to place feature requests on my thread, as i'll be incorporating as much as possible into each release of Cash Mod

Yeah, I need an actual mod that isn't involved with cash mod.

I loved the cash mod, but it interfered with shop. I can't use it. So therefore, I really need a separate stock market mod. I'd love it!

Please! :D :D

I'd be very interested.

Thanks!

I don't know if you guys have already tried it and decided against it, but I made a stockmarket mod which works with the item shop (v1.2.0) and points mod -
