    Skill Level Added!

    A new and improved version of Skill Level has been added to the boards. The following is a little guide to understanding this new feature.

    Introduction

    The new Skill Level is quite different to the old skill level system. I will try to explain as best I can the new changes that have been made.

    Changes:

    > You now get a screen that tells you just how many points you have earnt when you post.

    > Admin can add Skill Level (as a bonus) or subtract it (if the rules are broken). And yes, you can go into negatives.

    How it is calculated:

    Skill level is now based on a number of different aspects.

    > X Amount of points earned per new topic.
    > X Amount of bonus cash earned per reply for topic author.
    > X Amount of cash earned per reply.
    > X Amount of cash earned per character.
    > X Amount of cash earned per private message.

    You can view your skill level on the memberlist, viewtopic and your public profile.

    Post your comments about it in this thread.

    Good Question. At the moment not much. However we will probably soon add a little shop where you can buy custom ranks, stars etc.

    getting points for private messages hmmm
    anyone sad enough could arrange with someone else to keep sending each other stupid pm's just to get points
    but apart from that i think its pretty cool
    oh yea that reminds me, if you edit your post and put something else in do you get points for that? and also if you edit your post and do nothing would it still give you points?

    It will give you points if you make your post longer yes. However it does not give points for quotes.

    Update!

    A new shop has been installed! It is located on the navbar at the top.

    You can now use your Skill Points to buy the following:

    Privilege Settings:
    Buy Avatar Ability
    Buy Signature Ability
    Buy Titles Ability


    Name Effects Settings:
    Buy Color
    Buy Glow
    Buy Shadow


    Title Effects Settings:
    Buy Title Color
    Buy Title Glow
    Buy Title Shadow


    User-Custom Settings:
    Buy Custom Title
    Change Username
    Buy Other-User Title

    I think this new "shop" feature is great. although what I did was buy a glow, but then when I saw it I didnít really like it that much so I removed the glow, but I didnít get my skill points back...so I just wasted 500 points which sucks ....Iím not gonna do that mistake again and I hope no one else does this. I did see what my name would look like in the "test effects" place but when I saw my name with my avatar it didnít look that good....what Iím asking is that is it possible for the avatar to show up when your testing how your name will look like?

    oh wow thanks...man am i happy. this is great thanks a lot

    oh and im gonna wait a little for that avatar thing....so i dont make the same mistake...

    I was checking the prices of some of the effects and I saw that it took 750000 points to change the user title...now Iím not totally sure but donít you think that a little over priced? I mean, the most skill points that anyone has on this forum right now is 4174...and thats not at all close to 750000 points....so Iím guessing that no one will be EVER able to change their user title. I would think that it could be 10000 or 15000 to change the title so some people might have a chance...but its obviously your decision

    also, i was writing a message and when i clicked on post, a screen appeared but that was usual, what wasnt usual was that this appeared
    "Your message has been entered successfully.

    what does it mean by "You have exceeded the alloted amount of posts and will not earn anything for your post"?

    Lol, nice idea. I got my Elite thing and went bankrupt. Lol.

    When do you recieve the points? Every 24 hours or at every action that you do? If you know what I'm talking about.

    o god, i thought i lost my avatar, turns out you have to spend money to let your avatar show, and the title, hence the "Buy Avatar Privilege" and "Buy Title Privilege"...o ya, dont forget to buy your "Signature Privilege"

    You recieve your points as soon as you have completed your action MiThRaZoR.

    The shop is by no means finalised and neither are the prices. I agree that is way over prices and I will change those particular prices shortly.

    Basically the message you recieved is part of an anti-Spam system (Spam prevention). As it stands at the moment you can post and still get points for a maximum of up to 10 posts every 3 hours. However, when you were posting FmanFORPS3, the Spam prevention was more on the cautious side.

    Okay, I got it, since I have 11 skill points now. But what's this donate feature? Anyone could donate you points? That would be cool but could start alot of begging.

    Oh yes, I also forgot about hacking.

    And no problem Morpheus.

    Well I can turn it off if I have to. I'm going to do a bit of consulting with the staff to see what they think. Thanks for your concern MiThRaZoR.

    Of course Fman. These mods are brand new. It will take a few days for people to realise the shop is even there. We wil add new items as often as we can. I will try to annouce whenever we add some new ones, especially if they are out of most peoples price range!

    Hmm. It's working fine, its just not Bold. I will see if I can make the name bold like normal for you Blake.

    Everythings starting to shape out nicely, good work Morph! I have a question for all the users, what else do you guys think we should have in the shop? Have some good suggestions that we implement and hey, you might get some skill points for it

    lol, the last part really motivated me to give you a GREAT idea

    Well...maybe we can buy smileys...so we can use them in our messages. I think that would be a good idea, maybe even a "great" one.

    You could also sell new smileys so we have a bigger variety...
