    Credit Award System - now in place

    Today, welcome to the new AO Credits System. Up until now, the only way we had to acknowledge contributors to AO was via post count. Well, from this day on, you will be rewarded with more than a post count increase. Welcome to AO Credits! Earn credits in a variety of ways. The more you earn, the better things we can make available to you.

    HOW DO I EARN CREDITS?

    Note: Credits are NOT earnt in forums where user post count does not increase. Eg: in the Clans and Intro forum.

    Everyone has been awarded credits for the usergroup you are in and referrals brought to AO. No credits have been given for past posts, threads, and voting etc. So FROM NOW ON, your activity will earn you credits! Hopefully this can also bring more voting on the SOTW and WOTF contests too.

    The following credits will be applied:

    Induction Credit: 100
    Credits awarded when your are promoted into a new usergroup.
    Exception: -200 credits will be applied if becoming a banned user or placed into the post moderation usergroup.

    Referral Credit: 100

    Additive Referral Bonus: 5%
    Extra credits for referring many others. Referrals are checked and added every midnight. Get 5% more credits per referral. Eg: If you have 10 referrals, your credits will be 150% more than others.

    Time Credit: 0
    Current we are not awarding credits based on time at AO.

    Activity Credit: 10
    Credits awarded once per day when you do something at AO.

    Birthday Credit: 100

    Reputation Granting Credit: 0.1
    Awarded when you give others reputation. A multiplier by the amount of reputation given.

    Positive Reputation Credit: 10
    Awarded when you receive positive reputation.

    Negative Reputation Credit: -15
    Awarded when you receive negative reputation.

    New Thread Credit: 20

    Rate Thread Credit: 5

    Posting Credit: 5
    Credits awarded for all posts, except when creating a new thread.

    Own Thread Posting Credit: 3
    Applied when posting in a thread which you originally created.

    Post Size Credit: 0.1
    Credit awarded per character in a post, in addition to the Posting Credit.

    Poll Create Credit: 10

    Poll Vote Credit: 3

    Deleted Thread Credit: -20
    Credit applied when your thread is deleted.

    Deleted Post Credit: -5
    Credit applied when your post is deleted.

    Creating a New Review: 100

    Winning POTM: 100

    Winning WOTF: 100

    Winning SOTW: 50

    HOW DO I SPEND MY CREDITS

    So you have earnt all these credits, now what do you do with them? The Credits System is a living and breathing beast. What you see now is only a glimpse of things to come. You can use your credits to buy cool things and open up forum features.

    Currently, I will offer the following:
    • If there is a tiebreaker in contest votings, the member with the most credits wins.
    • For physical prizes, eg: t-shirts, DVD's etc., they can only be won by members with a certain amount of credits. Trade your credits to gain access to these competitions. (Psss... news is that a Karas DVD comp will be released this week for AO members. 10 DVD's up for grabs!)
    • Use your credits to motivate me create a new anime series sub-forum.
    • (to be released at a later stage) Enhance your AO experience by buying specific fonts, increase inbox size, flood limits for PMs, glow colours and so on.
    • (contemplating) Trade your credits to play in the arcade.
    • and so on...
    OVERVIEW

    So as you can see, the more responsible activity you participate in here at AO, the more you will get back in return.

    If anyone has suggestions, then feel free to post them in this thread. For ease of reference, I have added the point values to AO Credits (FAQ Area).

    Thank you.

    ok, I think that the credit system is something of a brillient idea.
    Congratulations to the person who came up with it...
    but I have to say that with one of the ways to get the credits people are going to spam in the posts. the one I am talking about is the post size credit system.
    but that is the only one that seems like it is going to be a problem...
    but again I say congrats.

    I don't think this will be a problem with spamming in the posts. Because then member risk having their posts deleted and hence losing credits.

    Glad to hear you like it.

    How about some credit incentives in the gallery?

    ie. credits for commenting on/rating others' work?

    ohh... good idea.. i haven't thought of that... it would "motivate" them to post more with this rule..

    Post Size Credit: 0.1
    Credit awarded per character in a post, in addition to the Posting Credit.
    I would say giving points to them comments in gallery would be very good..

    EDIT*and one more thing... would that rule active in posting in clans?

    Not only they will risk loosing credits, but also infractions will be issued if they spam... In a way spamming will be a two way loos...
