Hey,

I wonder.. My vCash seems to be going up with every post I make or everytime I refresh WTAworld. It's not much (339.02 to 339.36 or so), but still. How is this possible?

:shrug:

i don't know... it does get more people to post, like i have seen people posting a lot that don't usually post more than once a day.

In a way it helps, but at the same time it hurts. But, as it is, there are a lot of nonsense posts anyway so it really isn't changing anything... alteast now they are for a cause and not just worthless...

Maybe its just a bug...

Are we getting different amounts of cash depending on which forum area we post in??? Or is the amount controlled by our number of posts or by our number of rep points?


btw - I totally agree with you, Avram! All of the '$0.12938' numbers do look really ugly!!!! :tape:

I can confirm we are currently testing a new rewards system. It will be fully rolled out with our next software platform updated currently planned for next week.

Some points:
1. When the system goes fully live, you'll be penalised at least $6 for every deleted post and $30 for every deleted thread. If you post rubbish to boost your balance, our admin/moderation team will delete your posts and your balance will automatically be updated to reflect your punishments.

2. If you are banned temporarily, you'll lose at least 30% of your balance as punishment. If you are banned permanently, you'll lose everything.

3. Non-tennis forums will be excluded from the new rewards program.

You have to earn your vCash now - we are no longer giving away free $25s to use at the vBookie. You can still gamble your rewards with the vBookie, but we also hope you'll be able to use it for other cool stuff too including free merchandise and qualify for promotional goodies from our partners. (if you earn enough vCash :p)

CrossCourt~Rally
Aug 14th, 2005, 08:53 PM

Then there should also be a feature where u can turn V cash off and choose not to partake in this feature. Just like u can turn off your "reputation" level and choose not to partake in that feature.
I'm here for the tennis..not for the rep points or vCash.

So my point being that it should be an OPTIONAL feature... :wavey:

You can expect things such as signed goodies from your favorite players, merchandise, rare promotional items etc. There will be plenty of announcements about new rewards, opportunities and how to qualify for them as we go forward in future. I'm not going to say much about the really exciting stuff until we have agreements in place. :)

wtn_amanda
Aug 15th, 2005, 12:01 AM
I've discussed this and there will be no off switch for performance reasons. If you don't want to participate, ignore your reward points and don't claim any member rewards.... as you do now with vbookie and your vcash.

If you delete your own posts, you'll only the lose amount you were rewarded. If a moderator deletes your post, you'll be penalised $6 per post or $30 per thread.

The whole V game is raped with people who post a lot getting extra cash, it's silly and makes V cash unrealistic.

Which is more realistic?:

1. Getting $25 worth of free forum currency everytime we post a new betting event;
2. Earning your forum currency by creating interesting threads on the site, posting messages, maintaining a blog, sharing your tennis photos and recommending your friends.

I think the latter without question.

when I bet 1 on a match and I win 0.30, I only get 1 back, how's that possible?
I bet 1 on Ivanovic who was at 0.30, and now I only got 1 back, that's not really fair I think...

I agree, if we can have decimals why not be able to return the actual amount as opposed to rounded down?

The problem is Virtual Betting was not designed to support the new decimals system we are now using in the rewards scheme. It should support this in future, but right now, yeah you'll only get your stake back if your profit is less than 0.50.

Amanda uses the extra vCents to support her sugar fix.

Can the mods like, loan out as much Vcash as they like?
If so, will we get punished for begging.

not much fun anymore with so few money, with less than 10 you almost can't do anything, certainly when we don't receive under the 0.50... :(

I'm glad I found this thread--it answers some of the question I had regarding v-cash, which I don't use but kept going up :)

But I still don't get it :scratch:

Why do some posters receive less than others? Because they post more often? Or it is because where you post?

And yes, I know that you don't get any in the non-tennis section.
