I think that you need to be level 18 to bank gold.

Don't even bother with it. If you need gold for items, I can give you some.

thank you for the offer Revned. I'm sure that I may need the offer at some point in the future.



I was just curious about putting the gold in the  bank thing here and what ya had to do to put the gold there.

I just looked at my profile and found out that I'm a level 18 regular user and another question popped up.



How do I access the Kudos Bank?

What's a Kudos Bank?



When are we going to move to new forums without GP and EXP and all that nonsense?

Click on your name with a number after it on any page. It says "Gold Bank" near the bottom under "Other Features". If it doesn't say that then you need more "karma" which means you haven't been around for long enough to unlock that feature.



There's talk of moving to another forum which hopefully won't have all this silly stuff in it.

Thank you so much for posting the link to the bank, Maxim..



I'm really thankful that you posted the link to the bank so I could deposit my gold for future purchases.

I haven't heard from bustin in a while, I assume any time he has spent on the new forums has to do with working around that password issue, which if he can figure out, should allow all users and posts to migrate over.



I think life goes on if we had to lose posts and reregister, but as it's happened a couple times before (through no fault of bustin, since that was before he was on board with VGMaps), I think especially the "veterans" here would be greatly annoyed and/or frustrated and we don't need that if there's at all a chance we can safely move.



As Maxim points out, the EXP/Gold never seemed to be a hit around here, so the new forums won't have that.  Maybe I'll ask if we can have little icons of some sort next to our avatars or something (for the Maps Of The Month honour) but I don't think that's a huge deal if we can't keep that either.

There's probably an add-on for something like that.

why not have some sort of poll to see what everyone thinks about the idea of revamping the forums and any future ideas on revamping the website?


Title: RE: Banking one's gold on here??
Post by: JonLeung on March 02, 2009, 12:29:35 PM
Oh, I'm pretty sure everyone is on board for the idea of revamping the forums, the only issue is currently with preserving the posts and users which bustin is working on.  If he's not successful with that, I'm sure it will be up for discussion.



As for the revamp of the whole web site, I will discuss my thoughts of that in a month's time...  *looks at calendar*  ...probably exactly a month, actually.  (I'm sure everyone knows why.)



Don't worry, the idea of a site revamp is not dead, but there are some issues to address...but again, it'll be a month before I wish to seriously touch that topic.

that's cool.



may I add my ideas on the site revamp when it's time to do a site revamp?


Title: RE: Banking one's gold on here??
Post by: Maxim on March 03, 2009, 02:32:25 AM
Because discussing the site revamp is appropriate for 1st April?


Title: RE: Banking one's gold on here??
Post by: magicbay on March 04, 2009, 07:39:19 AM
ok.



I'll mark that date on the calendar because I've got an idea or 10 (million?) I'd like to suggest then.


Title: RE: Banking one's gold on here??
Post by: JonLeung on March 04, 2009, 11:21:07 AM
Well, if you really can't wait, here's a topic where we were talking about ideas for the possible revamp; you could write them there but don't expect me to do much with any suggestions until at least April 2...



Funnily enough, that topic's ID is 777...  I hope that's a lucky sign.
