In that case.. how much does Rolstoppable owe?

How much money does Bill Gates have?

Not enough to pay off Rol's debt ;)

We're gonna' start charging people per post... if you run out of VG$ you can't post anymore and need to buy more. We're still working on prices, but expect something along the lines of $4.99 per VG$100, and posts cost VG$0.50 each. Obviously we need a smooth transition into this, so everyone gets VG$1000 for free to start with.

Any examples of successful implementation of this at other forums? 

Just to be clear, they're only joking with posts like that xD

It's mostly for when the Prediction League comes back. No real money involved whatsoever, it's just for fun.

Because the mod team is wanting you to pay your way out of bans.

I have more than 4,000 VG$ in my profile.

VG$ existed before and were used first and foremost in a sales prediction league where people could place bets on their forecasted numbers. I never participated, but VG$ could also be earned via forum activity. Looks like the feature was merely put on hold when it was disabled some years ago and now it has been reinstated from the depths of the website's code, so the virtual money of old users is still all there. Newer users start at 1,000 which is the same amount that everyone back then started with.

Back then bans did cost VG$ for real. Not to pay your way out, but as additional punishment to jail time.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Makes one wonder: How many millions of VG$ do you owe this website?

I think VGCharts is working on their own cryptocurrency, ChartzCoin (VGC).

Prediction League

dont tease me like this

He's definitely not teasing you.

Now that the GameDB is back, I'm going to do some general housekeeping around here (both with the DB and the overall website) and knock out some bugs and enhancement requests for the next few weeks. After which, I plan to turn my attention to the next big project: Resurrection of the Prediction League!!

Maybe up and running by early March? Depends on how involved some of the general enhancements I want to work on, really are - and of course, it depends on how much work/testing is required to get the PL back up and running...   

 

...Kirby007 for Prediction League Admin? ;)
