Make a use for vBookie Credits!

What is the point in having a vBookie system if we cannot spend our credits on anything?

I love the betting idea, but meh, what's the use in it if we get no reward from the vmoney we have earned from gambling? It's pointless.

What I suggest is a vShop, I have seen this on other vbulletin forums I am on, and it allows the user to purchase some cool customisations with the credits they have, eg. coloured username, bold username, more customization with sig etc.

You should explain in more detail how their vShop works and what people can get.

Should be able to use it to bail out of bans.

Re: Make a use for vBookie Credits!

Alright well quick explanation:

The forum enabled users to purchase customisations with their credits, things which included but were not limited to-

*Coloured Usernames
*Glowing Usernames
*Custom User Title
*Larger avatars and signatures
*Heaps more other stuff that I can't remember

The forum also had games which users coudl stake credits on, like copter challenge.

Sounds like a good idea. It'll liven up this forum, that's for sure. I'm all for it.

Maybe 500,000 for permaban.

Well, I can envision all sorts of permutations for this, but as a person gets banned over and over the vmonetary support would diminish. Probably. Most likely. I think.

This sounds like programming work. Forum couldn't actually repair the flag problems, I doubt they will implement some new features even if the admin team wanted it (and I kinda think they did).

It's something to think about, at the very least.
