    Ok, lets make this the official thread from now on for confusion over our current forum (Xenforo currency):).

    I have always called them forum points on Vbulletin and now Xenforo, but they are also known as credits and Ogre Dollars. The blog also has a currency, but it is the same as the forum currency.

    Points are also used in Events and the Review contest, but these are not currency.

    Also, points does not mean Trophy Points on the forum:). I have never given these nor do I know how to remove them. They are not really used for anything either.

    Any questions?

    Some new members think they are getting $20 to 60 on their first day and think they can buy something in the shop where most items start at 20,000:).

    So far, I can just adjust the number of people for top stats and transaction history.

    Here are the incredible direct options so far:).

    Default Currency
    • Ogre Dollar
    • User Can Change Currency

    One is on the blog and the other is in the forum. However, they are both points now:).

    Other than comment, reply, posting, and reading articles at gameogre.com , are there any other way to get points?

    I got a question.. so do we use these credits for items in the shop and if yes why isnt the forum account still logged in when we are sent to the shop page?? The checkout requires additional info or a new account???

    More of a shop questions really but still it is related to the credits!!! :)

    Could be offering a paid option for shop points in the near future. This would do a few different things:

    1. It would definitely be a separate currency.
    2. Will likely be called Ogre Gold Points.
    3. The community and Gold points will not mix at all although the overall prices will be the exact same.
    4. Items should be bought with one or the other.
    5. You can buy Gold Points but do not have to be a member of the community.
    6. Thus, banned members could use this option if they still want something for the shop.
    7. This option would be available to anybody as long as the transactions are completed with no problems.
    8. These points will not be removed for any reason once bought and paid for.
    9. These points can be gifted.
    10. Within reason, there are no limits on purchases for this option. For example, you can buy multiple items at once as long as you have the points.


    At this stage, we are still looking into it, but it is a possibility that will probably be trying soon:). This new currency would have benefits for us as well as those looking to get items quickly from the shop!

    Is this going to also apply to AQ3D items? It would be better if they would not get affected by this and you can only get them with normal ogre currency, not this new upcoming one.

    Not going to give any more details until a system is planned and developed for it so we can try it. Thus, it will take time. When ready, it will not hurt community members at all because they will be separate and prices will not change. The upside? It could help with server costs if successful.

    Other than that, all going to say for now is that it has been requested and a certain game developer actually has helped with ideas for it:).
