If most no deposit bonus are more or less $10, why not having the possibility of also withdraw mobpoint when reaching $10? The work for BRM would be defenetely increased (more or less 5x more work) and this way, the loyalty of users with BRM could also decrease (if you get the money faster, you will stop the effort of reaching there, because it will be faster and easier). Quality of the forum can decrease with this type of program, and this could atract other users than poker lovers to come here writing about other stuff than poker, just to get the $. After passing it to moneybookers, you can do whatever you want, but the main objectif is giving people money to play poker, having the chance to deposit safe without having to give credit card info. Better let it this way, i guess.
Yeah, 5k is good. As someone said, $10 is not a bankroll at all. When you have $10 in your bankroll you need a lot more luck to build decent 'roll than if you would have $50.
Also reaching 1k isn't that hard. I think the cashout should depend not only of the amount of posts, but also on quality. Like @starbay said it takes just to post rubbish to earn 1k. 5k is fair enough.

I am good with 5000 points as well. There are plenty of other ways to get extra points like cracking the safe and winning the mob draw. IMO the points and potential cashouts are just added bonus to the value you get at his forum. Some good stuff is getting posted here as well as some funny and simply interesting things. Come on guys, post some hands and let's talk about them.

Good idea but it won't work out. There are many people that got bored after reaching 1k-2k in brm points and BRM doesnt need to give them anything. Cashing out with 1k brm points will cause lots of spam as well.
