#1 Virtual Point/Cash System.

Post by tim » 1 week 2 days ago

I have added the Ultimate Points extension to use virtual points/cash system. It is virtual (isn't real) only for fun.
Over time based on the number of points you have, it'll be another indicator to represent your activities on the forum.

see more details about how to you earn points.
app.php/ultimatepoints?mode=info

downloads cost 10 points
new registered member automatically get 50 points

You can open bank account by click on the "GL bank" tab and do withdraw/deposits there.
app.php/ultimatepoints?mode=bank

You can buy lottery tickets which are drawn daily (every 24 hours) on the "GL Lucky Lotto" tab
app.php/ultimatepoints?mode=lottery

You can get to all these tabs by clicking on the Points link as shown here.

Thanks Issabella. Glad you like it.
I just change something too. Previously if you download a file from someone's post, you pay 10 points but those points go away.
I just changed it so that when you download a file those 10 points are awarded to the file's poster.
So for example if dinasset post a script (provided it isn't just a link but an actually physical file that isn't an image), and you download it: you pay 10 points, and dinasset gets 10 points.

This should over time make people with contributions that are downloadable super wealthy, hehehe.

UPDATE:
Downloads no longer cost points so anyone (even non-registered/logged out members) can download.
But to keep the "crediting the contributor with virtual wealth" spirit alive, 10 points are still rewarded to the contributor.

I didn't want to flood the system with too much virtual cash by non logged in members.
So I came up with better compromise i think.
If you're not logged in or don't have enough points, you can download file but no points will be given or taken away from anyone.
For people who are logged in and have enough points (participators), i take away 10 points and give it to contributor.

PS:I think this gives points more value, you earn them by partipation, and not just come out of thin air every time someone clicks on download.
I guess people could cheat and log out and get the download without giving points but what's the fun in that right? It'll just count as a non-registered download which has no effect on our point system. So I think that's okay. But when points are earned or given they mean something in the system. :D
