Points

Call me an idiot, but hwat do points do? The ones below your name and Avatar, I've never seen them before on any forum.

If they're for something special, how are they distributed?

It's a new feature they have implemented. You receive points, or credits, for each post you make, and you get more for each person that replies to it.

Go here for more details.

NOTE: This is NOT an excuse to spam!
If you get your post deleted you will lose points, and more than what the post initially gave you.

There's a mod for a day thing?

Is that wise?

You can use your points to become "mod for a day???"






*shudders to think*


I'll have to go back and look at the list....I didn't see that one.

Neither did I.

It's removed now it seems.

Good call, I say.

Personally, I am anxiously awaiting the day I can free up the name I want. ;D
Though a new title could be cool.

When it says change custom title or change user name does that mean you have to pay to change it? It thought that you used to be able to do that for free.

Yes. To the best of my knowledge that is how it works. You get the points for using the boards, then you can us those points to change your name, title, others names and titles. Also, it has several other cool functions such as the glowing name and the like.

To view the various functions, click on the 'User CP' icon in the upper left hand corner, then use the jump selection, choosing forum home. On the left hand side of the screen there is an icon for 'store'. Click on that to view the different features and prices. 1700 to change someones name.

So Wraith, I just noticed that I can't change someone elses user name. In the event there is a user name that is taken, but has never been used, what would it take for me to assume that name?

you cant.... the admins ahve stated over the year that they will not delete any acount..

i even volenteered to delete them for them... but they wont go by it.. so if a user name is already in use.... you have to come up with a nother one.

sorry

That's just aweful. The name I want has never even made a post. What a waste. Let's start a complaint thread and forward it to the admin.


As per usual, I am starting trouble.
