*Disclaimer* I know this is an old post but I'm going to reply anyway* :p

Well now, I've been a member of this forum for a whole 30 minutes; long enough to read the rules, find out what I need to do to get hosting, and know what a quality post is. Rule #9 made me shake my head. Anyway, my question to you, Sander, is: Is this a trick question? My first answer was, "I'd like to write 10 awesome posts as a newbie and impress you into giving them to me "just because". But since points won't get me hosting any faster I guess you can donate them to someone else. Or you can be a little more forthcoming and give me some ideas of what you'd like? You can even keep it secret and just PM me. Anyway, thank you for giving me a fun thread to reply to as my "Hello, I'm here and I'm going to participate in the forums" quality post. :good:

Have you read the thread about getting double everything when you have posted 100 points?
http://www.gigarocket.net/forum/thread-1336-post-10854.html#pid10854

Just thought this would give you an extra motivation. You can also win a VPS if you make the most posts for December. And that is easily reachable as the person who has made the most posts to date has made 28 posts. Plenty of time to beat that number. :lightbulb:

Yep, I read the post on "double everything when you have posted 100 points". I also read the thread about the VPS and stored it in my memory bank (which means OK that's interesting but probably not for me.) However, you're nice little tid-bit of info has peaked my interest some more. I'll go revisit that post. :wink:

There is a forum called Namepros and few years back that had the perfect forum cash/point system ever existed. It was like an macro economy. members used this forum cash called NP$ for everything. Forum offered domain names for cash and other members would sell and buy things like web hosting, domain names, design, content and seo services. I think the reason to it's success was their bank had some kind system to but buy and sell cash to members using paypal. But I think it become bigger than it should had been and forum had to remove the system.

I want to really deserve your points, so probably I would work so hard that it will be the same as earn it by posting in this forum anyway.

If that makes any sense :tease:

How are these points calculated ? I mean is it like 1 point per post and 2 points per topic ?

I'm not quite sure xdude. This is how it used to be calculated at our previous Website - probably some of the same here as well. Perhaps un4saken or djb could set us straight as I am curious myself:


Points Income


New Post - 5
Amount of points received on new post.

New Thread - 10
Amount of points received on new thread.

New Poll - 5
Amount of points received on new poll.

Per Character - 0.01
Amount of points received per character (in new thread and new post).

New Registration - 10
Amount of points received by the user when registering.

Per Poll Vote - 5
Amount of points received by the user who votes.

Per Reply - 2
Amount of points received by the author of the thread, when someone replies to it.

Per Rate - 0.05
Amount of points received every time a user rates a thread.

Per Referral - 15
Amount of points received everytime a user is referred. (the referred user is who receives the points)

I'm sure that's not how it works now. I have 90 posts and 97 points. If I get 5 points per post I should have over 400 points. :shock:

edit : Okey I figured it. 1 per post and 2 per topic. I have 7 topics and 83 posts.
