Yep.  Create a share tree with a single default node.  All users will 
then be given the default number of tickets.  The default halftime is 
168, which is a week.  The halftime is the time it takes for the effect 
of past usage to decay to 50% of it's original value.  That's probably a 
good starting point for you.  You can always tweak it later.
