    Bounty Thread

    On another forum, forum members can create threads with bounty which is virtual money coined by the forum, and the OP can award the bounty to the person who provides with the best answer. Can I call such a trhead 'bounty thread'?

    Is that other forum in English? If so, what do they call it?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Do you mean they (the OP) can give money to the one who gives them the answer they like best?

    No, it is in Chinese.

    The forum issues virtual money by themselves. For example, if I reply a post, I can earn one dollar of forum virtual money.

    Do you hear about Bitcom? Bitcom is a virtual money, but it is widely accepted. The forum virtual money is similar to Bitcom, however it is just limited in the forum only.

    Yes, I have heard of Bitcoin. But I don't understand it. I'm not sure how it works.

    (You could also say Bitcoin is a virtual money that is widely accepted.)

    Are you sure you mean "Bitcom"? Most of us are familiar with "Bitcoin".

    The human brain is an amazing thing. My brain "knew" it was supposed to be "Bitcoin" so that's what I saw. Three times!

    Re: Bounty Thread

    Does 'bounty thread' make sense?

    I've used this expression in a piece of writing of mine which I probably will contribute in a composition competition dedicate to an IT forum.

    Some fellow forum members have shared wonderful stories of theirs with the forum there, but I just have a few small stories. A moderator and judge says that except for Chinese, other languages are acceptable.

    So far all the contributions of fellow forum participants' are in Chinese, I would like write to my story in English and hope to add a little different feature to the competition.

    Are the moderator and judge the same person?

    Yes!

    There are a total of three judges who are all moderators too.
