    Hard to say it just started yesterday and no one seems to know what it is all about.

    Hate to sound redundant but look around on some other threads. There's a little info about them, but not much. Got me scratching my head too.

    I had 2 coins after I made a post, then I turned around and gave' em away to a new member. I haven't figured it out yet, either.

    far as i can tell if you post you recieve 2 gold coins .
    and there are the usual moochers and gimmesomes that are out there lurking waiting to snitch your gold dubbloons or blatantly whine
    beg and browbeat you out of em................
    dont cave in just avoid eye contact and post like theres no tommorow:big_smile:

    This is what I think they are for....

    I think Paul and the mods want to award people who are active on the BOC with posts....

    So, I would imagine that in the future, there will be contests / giveaways that will require you to have a certain amount of coinage in order to sign up for it.

    Simula r to reps, others may also give you coins for a really good post.
    Only thing about that is, right now, you don't have any idea that someone has given you some or who it is if you did know.

    I would imagine that these contests / giveaways will require a substantial amount of coinage since it is so easy to get them by just posting.
    For instance, if you will look at "Tea's" coinage, he has built several hundred gold coins in just 2 days time.

    I am sure that there are other things about gold coins that will be implemented as well, but I think what I just mentioned is the main thing.

    Of course, this is all speculation.

    must have been my underhanded attempt to gain undeserved coinage from unwitting /unsuspecting members....................
    guess the old saying cheaters never win and winners never cheat rings true again

    I was just noticing a bit of green tint in your pic tea!
    Green Tea is supposed to be good for you... but like most things that are supposed to be good for you... they are gross!

    :dribble:

    Over 400 gold!
