It is part of a new feature that we are adding. For now, the features are being beta tested by Premium members and Staff. Later, the features will be open to VIP'ers.

Part of the system is a feature called vbBookie that will allow members to bet 'virtual' dollars on events.

We will post more details as we are able.

I have a question with the Phin dollars. I read how it works, but i still dont understand. Not using OhioBrian in a bad way and I don't mean anything by this, but he registered on this site like 4 days ago, and has 73 total posts, mostly rambling about coach chin. And he has 735 phin dollars. I have been a member since 04, and have almost 900 posts. All of these posts I believe have meaning and importance. Most of them arent short and they all have relevance. Yet, I only had 27 or so phin dollars showing when I signed on today. After three or four more posts a little bit ago, I now have 38 phin dollars. Can someone please explain to me how this all works, because I am confused. Did we start back to zero posts the other day or what? Im just trying to figure out the situation. I like the idea of them also, thanks to anyone who responds.

None of the features here 'crash the site' and sometimes a feature is just a reward to loyal members, and not to get the post count up.

Well what about simple thoughts that are very good points but have less wording than others. The more gregarious one is the more a person makes in terms of "Phin Dollars"? Opinionation would be hard to reward.

Well I think its an interesting debate.

On the one hand the users who arent VIP dont keep the site running financially.

On the other hand without the regular members would the site even be worth keeping running? It would be pretty empty.

Without all of us, there is no Finheaven and there is no VIP.

Thus, there is no business..........

Think about it - if FH was only the VIP members, what would be the point?

I can go into 2-3 threads and find 10 members who aren't VIP that contribute just as much. It's not all about the money. No offense because you're just doing your job, but sometimes it's like ESPN Insider around here. It's the internet to me, so I don't really care. I just give my views, regardless.

Before the VIP'ers, the site was help along financially by Premium members and donations.

Without VIP, there is no 'all of us', either. You seem to be missing the point that someone has to pay for 'all of us' to tag along for free. :wink:

I challenge you to rent or buy some servers, pay for bandwidth and just have members who fill your board with great threads, and see how long you stay in business.

Unfortunately, there is a business side to all internet services.

I know that someone has to pay. What I'm saying is that, there doesn't need to be a restriction on everything. It almost seems like a bribe. I mean, in that case....."regular" members shouldn't get points at all. I know that I contribute to this site, just for the simple fact that I think before I post whenever I find something interesting. Same goes for most regular members. I'm not missing the point at all.

IMO, it's already enough that the "insiders" on here (not being sarcastic) post in the VIP forum. Those VIP members and whatnot are already getting much more information. My point is that before there were all of these extra user groups, there was the regulars who contributed to FH's success more than anyone. If we didn't stay as active as we are, then FH probably wouldn't of blown up. Credit to the staff, but I think the members go uncredited unless you're a premium or VIP member.

The point is......when I first registered here, this forum was wide open. Everyone had access to everything, just like how an internet forum should be. Now, it seems like you've got to pay for everything around here. O'well, it's not my site so I guess it doesn't really matter. I'm just one who will ALWAYS speak my mind.

& nah, I don't have a reason to start a site. It's not my thing. I've got too much to do.

Alex44
01-23-2007, 06:40 PM
The point is without regular members there is nothing to be a VIP to but without VIP there is probably nothing to be a member to.

So which is more important? I dont know, they seem pretty equal to me. I have no problem with the VIP getting it first, but Id like to see regular members get it eventually is all.

Quick question, what is the difference between a premium member and a VIP member?

VIP is open for anyone as long as they pay the yearly rate, which is $36.00, WELLLLLLL worth it by the way, if you decide to join you will not be disappointed at all.

Premium Members are by invite only and costs $84.00 a year. The current Premium Members have their own section of the message board, get discounts on merchandise, have input on the present and future of the site and have all the VIP privledges. Once a year they vote on new members.

Hope that clears it up.

The arcade points is not turned on because it wouldn't be fair to ask registered members to pay to play if they can't win the awards. :)

Sorry, I read the merged thread in this forum, but it didn't answer any of my questions.

(1) Everytime I click on the vbPlaza Menu, it doesn't let me access Gifts or Ribbons. It only lets me Donate, Bank, Thief, Lottery. How do I get those ribbons everyone has under their avatar?

(2) What's the point of the bank besides the obvious, so no one "theifs" your phin dollars? And everytime I try and deposit any amount, it tells me the amount is invalid.

Rob has it right but to answer your other question you can deposit your phindollars in the bank but be sure to use the decimal points.For instance if you want to deposit 200 dollars you have to type in 200.00

I am going to merge this with the other thread

GridIronKing34

Most mods make a lot of replies to threads and when they make an announcement or a thread, everyone takes a look at it, which gives them Phindollars. I moderate the GM League and I've noticed that it's because your activity level goes up and you post more than you normally do.

Motion

Some build up through vbookie, there could be a huge payday this weekend with Wrestlemania. 50/1 odds on the one match.

I would assume Mods get so much by just doing their regular duty posting and keeping the forums clean. Plus, VIP and Premium forums get more $$$ per post.

Guys, I've read the threads explaining how the Phin Dollars are calculated, but I STILL can't understand how in the world I can have been a member for over five years, have close to 6,000 posts, and have no more than approximately $1,200 phin dollars (several hundred of which I won in a vBet on the Colts). Compare this to any number of new members who have been hear less than a year, may have 2,000 posts, and they have maybe three times as many Phin Dollars?

Something's wrong there. Could somebody check on that?

The credit started from when Phin Dollars were started...it does not go back to when you became a member.
