What if one were to create a fake sig campaign to increase competition and make it to where other sig campaigns would raise their price per post... would it work?

I think that it goes without saying that this is a really bad idea.

If by fake you mean don't pay out the amount outlined within the hypothetical signature campaign then:

1. It would mean screwing a lot of people out of coin
2. It would only be effective if you paid out, typically on a weekly basis for the first month at least
3. It would be bad news for the campaign signature legitimacy

It really isn't worth attempting.

Now Members have few good and trustworthy campaigns just because of this not running to any new campaign until they have some escrow or trustworthy feedback just because of this its failed attempt

I wasnt really planning on it... I was just speaking theoretically since I keep seeing the pay per post going up and up and up

Yeah, campaign owners only consider raising the rates iff the new highest paying campaign pays out.

Doing such a thing would only make sig business re think their current strategies and also look to no doubt reporting you and also hitting your trust rating too.

It might raise the price for a little while but am sure they will soon catch on to it and also no doubt reduce their prices or even cancel their services. Theirs already a few who have cancelled theirs and to be honest if they all cancel their services they they offer to pay people for their sig space as a bonus then it would be a good service lost. I like sig campaigns and to lose them would be a loss for myself and also other people.

Theirs already enough competition out their for them to make the decision if they are going to increase their pay per post that is up to them but it all comes down to the amount they can pay without it causing them to be at a loss.

There's always a limit. If you take a look at PrimeDice, they had been trying to match Ritz's offers, but they eventually stopped raising it. Stunna probably thought it wasn't worth it to up his rates.

after not paying for the first period, people will know that it's bullshit. so no, it doesn't affect anything.

It would likely fail since the first users would experiment but afterwards if no payout is recieved would abandon it
Also escrow and trust would be required meaning some Bitcoins would need to be proven to exist
Thinking back it's happened once or twice and people left right away on the users inactivity or based on their likelihood of non payment
Heck even Ritz had a challenege with theirs for a while establishing trust takes time.

There is enough competition already, so even if you were able to quickly establish a decent reputation (prior to trashing your rep), the stunt probably wouldn't have much effect.

There's always a limit. If you take a look at PrimeDice, they had been trying to match Ritz's offers, but they eventually stopped raising it. Stunna probably thought it wasn't worth it to up his rates.

FYI: I just saw today that he plans on having the highest rates next month related to the Primedice3 launch.

What is his rate going to be!?!? My current signature program pays .00075 BTC per post , which is about 42 cents per post...

Would not work.   People are already skeptical enough about new sig campaigns that come here boasting high payouts.. Once one month passes and the payouts aren't made, that plan would obviously be blown.   Bad idea...

That would really have the potential to cause problems for a lot of people. The campaigns are a great way to earn some btc and because the posts are required to be constructive it requires you to read quite a bit and increases your knowledge.

Actually, now that I think of it, I bet that would result in signature campaigns just being banned from this forum.  The creator of the fake campaign would get a shiny new Scammer tag to go along with their profile.

And this is why most deals wait for confirmed payouts before they up their rates for exactly this reason.

You could try it though I don't have to tell you that it's unethical

Weekly payouts means it wouldn't be zero cost for anyone who tried

Comps aren't gonna raise their rates until you have confirmed payouts

There have been a few fake deals in the past that people wasted an entire month on, hence why people are sceptical of new deals and demand some sort of reassurance that they'll actually pay. And the forum doesn't hand out scammer tags anymore. In fact, they've just removed them all.

He didn't say exactly but just that it'd be significantly higher. Plus apparently referral links are going to become active.
