Credits gone missing...

Somebody call the vpolice! It's only a small theft but looks like between 20 and 50 credits of mine have been stolen in the last week.... It doesn't seem like any of my posts have been deleted (unless somebody has been raiding old threads I've forgotten about), I didn't make any bets and I didn't use the vbank. What happen to my hard earned (gambled ) cash?

I demand justice!

Re: Credits gone missing...

Could someone (a mod or the thread creator..) have deleted a thread you posted in?

How should you be? You should be like a rocky promontory against which the restless surf continuously pounds.
It stands fast while the churning sea is lulled to sleep at its feet. I hear you say,
"How unlucky that this should happen to me."
But not at all.
Perhaps say instead how lucky I am that I am not broken by what has happened,
and I am not afraid of what is about to happen.

Well people just don't steal your money.

You either:
A) put some in the bank
B) bet it away
C) deleted your own post/thread
D) posted in a thread that got deleted

Since there's no tennis now you can't gamble, you said you haven't deleted any of your posts, and you also said you don't use the bank. So, that only leaves 1 option...

Re: Credits gone missing...

Thanks for the cash, I didn't relise donations were back again! I've made over 1700 posts so I can't check them all or indeed remember them all, lol. For sure none of my recent posts have gone. maybe there is an error in the system or something.

Re: Credits gone missing...

mine is missing too, and i've not been really keeping track (i have a real life )

but i think a real explanation is needed, since i only post in pretty moderate threads and i doubt that they are deleted.

i think from a login about once every week or 2, i've noticed my vcash went from:
220s->120s->90->25!

ah well, whatever, if i can hack a bank i will, i guess somebody prefers to do it with the vcash bank

Re: Credits gone missing...

and so now i try to keep track bo posting here everyday, and now i have 5 (actually 2.50, since this post +2.50)

and by editing this post, i realised it's +0.25 per edit! so after this edit, i should have 5.5?

but now, my last edit made my vcash 6.07.....

now, if i can write a script just to keep posting edit and submit and repeat........i should have around 7 after this edit?

and i'm right, i think there is a strange ratio to base every edit/post, so instead of a straight up +2.5 or +0.25, i think it takes your initial vcash and some sorta ratio:

(100+x)%*[vcash amount for action]*totalvcash

anyhoows, by editing this post constantly, i realised that yes, you earn 1 vcash per edit.

so it's easy to get rich, just keep editing and submit :P

oh but i realised you MUST make some changes to your post, so i guess that script has to take into account the textbox, add some random * or smileys, and you just post and wahla, vcash

so it went this way:
220s->120s->90->25->15->2.5

i think there is a strange algorithm involved.....

my prediction is that tomorrow my vcash would be prolly in the -15 range.....

let's see

btw if i get it right, i might as well play on the market

Re: Credits gone missing...

Yeah I'm still loosing too, when I<3lindsey donated me 100 credits I had 1620, now I have 1595. I'm glad i'm not the only one! Of course there is no way to prove it so I'll keep a record.
boxing day: 1595.
