How many times do we have to beat this dead horse? No, you shouldn't and it won't ever happen. I'm cutting that one short before someone once more starts on it again.

This idea has been going around for years. First, the reason the site is around is because of premium. If people just site around and wait until they reach the collected doll points, the site will end up shutting down. A premium doll takes up 10x the space of a regular one, space that costs money. No one is going to accept dollpoints as payment when there isn't any money to do so.

Second, people have scammed the site and used bots and hacks to get more dollpoints. While there are precautions, it still can happen. What is going to prevent someone from doing that? Only once per account? What's to stop them from making other accounts?

Why TDP isn't and will never be totally free
FAQ, Tutorials, and More!(Updated 21/4)
Q: Dollpoints, what are they? How do I use and earn them?
A: Dollpoints are the official currency of TDP. You can use them to buy things in the dollpoints shop(which you can get to by clicking your dollpoints on the front page), buy dolls and bases, and other things. You earn them by doing various things on the site which include, but are not limited to, building dolls, signing in, writing stories, etc. Dollpoints can not be given to another member and this option never will be available, the exception being you can give dollpoints to clubs. Also, they will never be used to buy a premium account.

Q: Why aren't the premium features free? Shouldn't they be free?
A: Premium features are not free because they take up a considerable amount of space first off. Next, they are not free because it is those premium subscriptions that keep this site running from day to day. Without these subscriptions, TDP would be closed down and we don't want that happening do we? Thus, they shouldn't be free. Also, dollpoints will never be used to purchase a premium subscription so don't even bother asking about it.
