    I have had a few Private Mails asking what values are associated with what actions for Gold Coins.

    Below is a quick snapshot that may help:

    Making A Post = $1 Gold Coin

    Creating a new Thread in the appropriate Topic = $2 Gold Coins

    Referring a new member to the BOC = $10 Gold Coins "This will be adjusted in the future to remove referrals which have signed up and never made any post or logged in after the registration date".

    Getting an article successfully published to the Featured Articles section = $100 BOC Gold Coins

    Many contest in the future will cost a certain amount of BOC Gold Coins to enter. If the staff see obvious post bumping in efforts to raise gold coins, that post will be removed, and a Gold Coin Penalty will be levied.

    I hope this helps to clear up some of the confusion?

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Maybe instead of gold coins we should have made them green stamps that way us older guys could grasp the concept a little better. lol

    :eek:oooh: Ummm, that means if I spend a hundred and twenty five gold coins to enter a contest and I dont win, I am out of 125 gold coins:sad2: ! I am a pretty active member and I still dont have enough to enter the first contest and I have'nt givin that many away! I will have to choose carefully what contest I enter! Will we be able to just cash them in for something in the future? Will there still be contest I can enter because I am a star member?
    Lmao, I am gonna have to start selling rep!

    I know what you mean Doyle!
    Just one more hoop to jump through to enter a contest. Believe it or not, there are days that I just don't feel like posting much. And if I have to post X-amount of times to enter a give-a-way, I just won't enter.

    Sorry Paul, but I had to say it:embarassed: :embarassed: !!!
