To be honest, I almost wanted to choke him when I first saw the post, which was among the very first few posts on the site.
Good question...I'm pretty sure that HIT won't accept any of these 工大饭票. The idea of having a user point system is to encourage active user involvement. It also helps keep track of what you've published, commented and how many have viewed your content.
A long-term goal is to create a private sub-forum accessible only to those whose 工大饭票 is higher than some threshold, which is quite straightforward technique-wise. But, to be honest, I'm not yet sure about what to do with that private sub-forum. It's not like we are gonna talk about some classified stuff.
