Option to Convert Points to Tokens?

I've amassed 3000 or so points and because i have no means to buy tokens  i can't chat to friends in EP.

Simple suggestion... There should be a way of converting x points into y tokens. The same way as we can "buy" gifts with our points, there should be an option to buy tokens with them too.

There are even EP members i can not PM becuse it takes tokens to do so! This I feel goes against the spirit of EP, but yet again, even if I wanted to, there is no way around this for me as I no longer have a credit card or bank account.

With the current global financial depression there will be more like me renouncing credit cards & banks and looking for ways to operate in this awful debt / credit laden society by means of barter, exchange of services for goods etc.

I think this is one area that EP needs to catch up with the changes that are happening everywhere!

Surely us non token buyers see more ads, and we would post more stories to gain tokens, thus adding to the user generated content, that will attract more users, making it more appealing to advertisers and therefore increasing EP's revenue!

I am nowhere near you ladies. I agree that it would make sense and the potential for revenue generation from ads should be a positive outcome for EP!

i have to many points also. i guess they will keep adding up!
