Our latest upgrade is the addition of two new features:

Phin Dollars and vBookie

Phin Dollars

Phin Dollars are virtual currency that you earn by being an active member of the board. Dollars are gained to the largest degree by posting long and well thought out posts.

Posts in the Ladies Lounge will not add to your Phin Dollars.

vBookie

vBookie is the only place at this time where you can spend your Phin Dollars and is a feature that allows you to wager virtual dollars on events that will be posted in the vBookie forum (http://www.finheaven.com/boardvb2/forumdisplay.php?f=89)

For the time being, only staff can add threads to that forum but everyone is allowed to post discussions about the events.

How are Dollars Awarded?

Here's how it breaks down:

Registering: 10
Paid membership: 100
Birthday: 100
Referrals: 50
Points per post count: 0.01 per character
Adding public profile pic: 100 (150 points deducted if they remove it)
New Arcade championship: 1000 (25 points cost to play a game)
Start thread: 1
Reply: 0.5

Effects of Spamming

If a member starts a thread or reply that, in the opinion of the staff was aimed at increasing your virtual dollars, that post or reply will be sent to Spam forum. All posts moved to spam will receive exactly the opposite of the reward of a good post. For example, if the post would have earned 10 dollars, once it is moved to spam, -$10 will be deducted from the poster's total.

You have access to all the features as a Premium member and the Bookie forum is open now to everyone:

if you get $100 for a paid membership, how come i have less than $100 when i have a paid membership?

i would have suspected that it started as of now, and wasn't retroactive... except i am already seeing people with several thousand phin dollars...

We set everyone's $ amount to zero yesterday then the site crashed. Give me a second to give the VIP'ers their cash bonus :D

A referral is when you tell someone about Finheaven and they put your name down on the registration form as having referred them.

Hopefully this doesn't lead to people starting stupid threads just to get more $$. We have enough of that allready!

Good point and one that the staff already discussed. I'll make a change to my original post to reflect the policy.

I have one quick question and I don't mean to sound like a whuner because I REALLY love this whole concept.

I've seen people in the main with less then 500 posts, no arcade wins and they are non-VIP/Premium yet they have like 200.00 more then me...

Just commenting....LOL!

The points were set to zero when the install was done so posts before that date don't count. There is a post in the Announcements forum that detail how points are awarded. VIP'ers were given an additional 100 points and Premium members were given an additional 500 points

Thank you sir, that makes it clear as a bell.

i think you should get dollars for winning a tournament, but i think it should cost a little to register in them.....like 25 dollars to get in a 4 ppl tournament then the winner gets 100

Okay I think I got it now. Confused me when I saw someone with less than a 1000 posts had more $$$ than me.
