The credit system was made to give users something extra for posting in our forums and also for helping each other out. The current rate of credit gain is: 5 Credits per post in crossfire forums + modifier. Moderate size posts will earn 12-20 credits. 3 Credits per post in normal forums + modifier for length of post. Moderate size posts will earn 8-12 credits. 1 Credits per post in forum games, no modifier.
Users can trade credits in the marketplace or gamble them in the [gameroom].
Since upgrading to vB 4.0 our credit 'store' has been offline. We plan to recode it soon and hope to have it back online sometime in July. Items available for credits will include Cash & Domain Names.
We will occasionally have contests and other misc events where users can earn credits.
