    Just a quick compilation:

    5 Dollars for starting a new thread (UiF forum excluded).

    50 for referrals to this site (works via referral system).

    Points will be allocated to thread's owner if their thread's reply exceeded certain amount. How many total replies will be given points?

    For a thread with 15 replies, 1 dollar
    For a thread with 30 replies, 2 dollars
    For a thread with 45 replies, 5 dollars
    For a thread with 60 replies, 20 dollars
    For a thread with 75 replies, 50 dollars

    For a thread with 150 VIEWS, 5 dollars
    For a thread with 250 VIEWS, 10 dollars
    For a thread with 500 VIEWS, 25 dollars
    For a thread with 1000 VIEWS, 50 dollars
    For a thread with 2000 VIEWS, 100 dollars

    I am also pondering on SUBTRACTING dollars for posts that wind up in UiF via moderator move (not one you start to vent).

    Edit: 100 Dollars for Moderating and 100 Dollars for Post of the Week. 500 Dollars for Post of the Month.

    Added Forums:

    Graphics Forum: 2 dollars for new thread, 5 dollars for EACH reply.

    Techie Forum: 2 dollars for new thread, 5 dollars for EACH reply.

    Note: Since the above are help forums, I think it's fair to give more for answers.

    Misu Hey, I saw that.

    Ethics, what if someone comes in and craps on your thread? Like if someone came into one of my threads and picked a fight and ended up starting a flame war - I would be punished for that? That sucks.

    Wow, I was wondering how I managed to stack up some bucks real fast. My betting posts have been viewed and replied a lot. Every time I logged on I was noticing 50 bucks here and 20 bucks there, I guess I know why now.

    Too bad it only goes up to 75 replies and 2000 views.

    My Photo Albulm thread is close to 3000 views.

    I should have had enough money to change everybodies titles...;)

    I'm very confused about these dollars. Maybe it's me.

    I had over three hundred dollars a few days ago. I had been playing Tetris (and the other games) for a week or so, and having a great time, but my dollar count never went down. In fact, it seemed to keep going up.

    Then, suddenly, between one game and another, I went from over 300 down to about 20, and I couldn't play anymore. :(

    What happened? I mean, if I wasn't entitled to those dollars, that's fine. But where did they all go? How can I get more? Does it really cost 50 of them just to play a game? I'll have to do a lot more posting to play as much as I want to, and I'll never get up to this thousand dollar level...every time I get 50, I'm going to spend them. I know I'm not the heaviest poster here, but I'm trying! Honest, I'll work at it!

    I'm just very confused. :(

    Yes, it costs 50 dollars (see sticky in General Questions).

    The problem was in the code, where instead of paying for the game you were given dollars to play.

    That has been mended. :)

    I've donated some money to you though.

    Thanks! I'll try to spend it wisely.

    Is there any way to see which of your posts have been rated all on one page?
  14. ethics

    One of the most asked for features.

    No, there isn't a way to see that.

    Initially, I didn't want people to make the store sort of what happened in BBR. So I purposely excluded that. Once I realized that the membership here is very different it was already time for me to play with the new version.

    I promise everyone that the new version will have this.

    It didn't.. At least not in the software sense. That's a "manual" thing we have to start and we just plum forgot.
