I'll work out the thread views thing later based on average views of threads.
The gachapon thing is fun (if people mean what I did for the eevees) but it's a huge pain in the ass to do, it can't be automated. So if it happens again it isn't going to be very often.
To your first point, I agree that the usefulness of gold is pretty limited. I wish and hope to somehow make it something more desireable and interesting to obtain other than simple hoarding. I don't know how realistic adding more features would or could be at this point, I've brought up a couple already and am contemplating other ideas. I do however know that we can and will add more interesting pets, as well as more events for exclusive pets.

It also can't be something too high and easily abusable.
I think increasing it perhaps to 0.1 or 0.05 or something might end up working a little better. I only glanced, but at an average of 1,000 views per thread we will see people getting 100 to 50 gold per thread (granted, higher viewed threads will yield better income so to speak). I imagine it's even possible to limit how much gold can be obtained from views in certain sections, so perhaps the most visited sections can be worth less than the less popular ones (or more valuable ones like guides).

potions, and such. Stuff like this isn't too high on the priority list right now though. Perhaps as an event even, we could do something like this.
