Hello and hi!

BotB Economy is pretty simple at the moment.

You earn boons for plays, donloads, profile visits, submissions to hosted battles, votes on ur submissions etc...

All these earnings are a BotBrs *income*.

These incomes can vary depending on the voters INF and some other weird formulas. Let's just keep the income as it is for now, because it is already rather arbitrary anyway and heavily depending on the activity of BotBrs.

Now we also have Boon payments. These include some dynamic numbers like:

- bumping a thread costs ur level in boons

- updating your avatar costs the size of the image in boons

and a few more. Let's keep these how they are as well.

And we also have very static numbers like:

Palettes cost b10,

Bulletins cost b25,

Lyceum Articles cost b33,

Playlists cost b56,

XHB Hosting costs b725, b975 or b1323 (depending on the hour count)

(XHB hosting is a little more complex than this because it also depends on how many XHBs you're already hosting.)

BotB has the boon bank, which started with a million boons total and is responsible for all the transactions on the site.

It is in the reds for a few years now, which is why we have taxes (x% of your boons taken away from you with x being the age of the website in years).

I feel like the static numbers of Boon payments don't reflect the economy very well. We are currently in a boon crisis! It should be heavy inflation! The bank needs to recover! My feature request is the following:

Make the static numbers listed above dynamic too, depending on the boon bank debt.

A possible approach could be this: [fixed multiplier] * (1000000 - boons_in_bank)

Fixed multiplier could just be the current price divided by a million.

Examples:

Multipliers for the different payments:

bulletins = 0.000025

palettes = 0.000010

lyceum = 0.000033

playlist = 0.000056

host1 = 0.000725

host2 = 0.000975

host4 = 0.001323

we have -600000 boons in the bank, which means we would end up with the following numbers:

OHB Host: 1160.0

2HB Host: 1560.0

4HB Host: 2116.8

Playlist: 89.6

Lyceum: 52.8

Palettes: 16.0

Bulletins: 40.0

pretty expensive right? well, obviously. boon bank is in the red.

But now think about the numbers when the bank would have 0 boons, which means all the available boons would be distributed among all the BotBrs. They would just be normal and how they are today.

And in case the bank earns more money and ends up with, let's say 500000 boons, it would mean the BotBrs would have less boons to spend, therefore the prices would be this:

OHB Host: 362.5

2HB Host: 487.5

4HB Host: 661.5

Playlist: 28.0

Lyceum: 16.5

Palettes: 5.0

Bulletins: 12.5

This (or a similar) approach would give more value to boons and bank debts would have an even larger impact on everyone. It would also be rather simple to implement i guess(???)

On top of that, it might be worth thinking about stealing all boons from accounts that didn't log in for 2 or 3 years everytime its tax day, so that the money will actually end up on accounts that would actually use it.

Thanks for reading and lmk what you think!!!
