    Question GeekBux

    With the old points system still in place & functioning, theres really been no use for it since the removal of the GameRoom mod, which unfortuantely had major issues/bus, including security issues, as that addon was no longer supported by the designer, it was best to remove it from the site.

    So this leaves the points part & what to do with it.

    One option is a points store, below are some of the things that it can be used for, please note, we WON'T be using all the features in it, probably the best feature that you guys/gals will abuse is the "Stealing" part lol

    I've always wondered what the GeekBux was for!

    You get GeekBux for doing things on the forums:

    Points For: Creating a Thread
    This is the base amount of points that a user will receive per thread creation. Forum options can multiply this value.

    Points For: Posting a Reply
    This is the base amount of points that a user will receive per reply. Forum options can multiply this value.


    Bonus Points Per Character
    When making a post, this will give a user an amount of points per character in their message. The total is then added to the base points per thread/reply before being multiplied by the forum specific option of that type.


    Points For: Thread View
    This is the base amount of points that a user will receive when a thread they create is viewed by somebody else. Forum options can multiply this value. Hint: Setting this to 0 will disable this option if you are concerned about performance.


    Points For: Registering
    This amount of points is given to a new user upon registration. This can be set to only be granted when the new user makes a certain amount of posts (that count towards post counts normally), definable below.


    Points For: Referring a Member
    This is the amount of points a user will receive when a new user registers with them as the referring member. This can be set to only be granted when the new user makes a certain amount of posts (that count towards post counts normally), definable below.


    Posts Needed By New Members
    This is the amount of posts that a member needs to make before the referring user and themselves are credited with points for that registration. Only posts that normally count towards a user's post count will count for this. If this is enabled, anyone who reaches this amount of posts will instantly be credited registration/referral points. Be careful when modifying this option or a user's post count.

    Setting this to 0 will disable this option and instead run the point increase instantly when a registration is made.


    Points For: Good Reputation Received
    This is the base amount of points a user will receive when they are given positive reputation. This can either be a static amount or multiplied by the amount of reputation given, as toggled below.


    Good Reputation: Multiply By Amount Of Rep?
    If this is set to 'yes', it will multiply the value above with the amount of reputation a user receives. Otherwise, it just uses the base number above.
    Yes No
    Points For: Bad Reputation Received

    Why would you post in this thread for issues about not being able to enter the raffle?

    Did you even vote for this pole?

    I feel the stealing function would have to have strict regulations. Like, letting a user be stolen only after X time of total inactivity and letting the user "defend" points (maybe with a quick trivia question or just logging in). Already voted (even though I'm new)!!
