Forum Shop, Credits, and SWCash are all of the same thing, a forum diversion for fun. First a foremost, none of it is real; NONE OF IT!

But it is fun and addicting, so be forewarned.

By posting, making replies, and various other actions, users automatically get "credits" (SWCash). As a user acquires more and more credits, he/she can then visit the BOARD SHOP, to buy shop items. Again, none of them are real, they are just for fun.

For example, a user may decide to purchase a Glow Name item. Once used, this item will make the user's name in posts, glow (at least in IE 6). Or a user could save up and purchase with his/her credits the ability to start their very own forum, or Pin a topic of their choice, or increase their post count, or even negate another user's post count and make it negative.

The Board Shop only stocks a certain amount of items, which are replenished periodically, but randomly. Some items are free, but you need to be here to get them when they are available. Since they are free, they go fast.

Users can transfer items and credits between each other. Users could even buy an item up, then sell it off to other users via the transfer function.

Moderators can FINE users, for spamming or for any other reason they chose. Beware the *SERVER* user: He is an autobot that may randomly take away some of your credits if someone reports your post. But, to counter him, I tend to transfer credits to users that I feel deserve them.

Credits can also be awarded for best post, best reply, best avatar, etc. The possibilities are really endless.

It's a fun forum diversion, giving us something else to do when surfing!

Have Fun.

i like this idea of a game and i think the rules puts the spammers out of the question of posting just to post. this sounds like a good idea and i hope it takes the site in the direction that we are now moving. plus i like the feature that the mod's can jump in and take control of the guy or lady who gets a bit caried away. but the best avatar i think we know who that is come on corey i searched hi and low for the one i got and you must admit it is funny yet a touch of character

So, would this earn points, or lose points?>>

Great, another forum with cash! Hmm, I see that the richest person has 20,000 already, on one of my boards I have saved up 300,000 and I have my own password protected forum, I go in there and spam up my forum and get more.

Great idea, and I also like the new homepage.
