EDIT: April Fools! Will update later with more info. :)

---

After the success of donations over at the Creeper's Lab, I'm announcing today the addition of microtransactions to the Interordi.com Message Board, along with the introduction of credits.

Credits are basically a form of virtual money, linked to your account and used to access some premium features and topics. Most of everything will remain as open as before, of course, as I want the community to keep thriving and growing in this social media era. Credits can be purchased through Paypal (more on that below) or obtained through the forums using various means.

As I've indicated above, I'm only taking this step after witnessing the success of donations on the Creeper's Lab, which has allowed the community and the server to grow quite a bit in the past several months. I've also taken some lessons from Reddit and their Gold program.


Some topics will now be marked as premium, and will need to be unlocked in order to be viewed. Likewise, some of the optional forum features such as Quick Reply have been turned into premium features. The main posting page remains available, of course. To see the number of credits currently available at your disposal, look at the upper right corner of any page, right under the "Last active" value.

The money thus raised will be used to cover the ongoing server expenses, most notably the ever-growing need for disk space. Any extra money raised will be reinvested into more additions or better hardware.


I was hoping to have the Paypal integration ready today, which would have allowed you to purchase credits and automatically have them granted to your account. However, a few nagging technical issues need me to delay this slightly. Please bear with me as I try to get this working as soon as possible. When this is live, I'll be able to properly announce the conversion rate between money and credits. I'm doing my best to make this ratio as reasonable as possible.

To get everyone started and acquainted with this new system, you're being granted 500 credits. This is enough to unlock 10 topics or 5 board features. I invite you to try it, look around and see how it works. Those who unlock the six main features will be granted a special prize to recognize their efforts and contribution! Additionally, as a demonstration on how credits can be earned through the forums without paying, you'll find a value of 100 credits in the Announcements forum, right below this posting. Others have been scattered around the place, allowing you to add some funds to your virtual wallet.


I fully realize that some adjustements will be needed as we go: what is considered a premium feature or not might change, as well as the fee to be paid for each unlocked. I'll keep everyone posted on these subjects.

Please feel free to share any concerns or questions below, and thank you for your ongoing support!

Why would I pay to be annoying when I can go on Creeper's Lab and be annoying for free?

Implying you didn't pay for your continued annoyance on the Creeper's Lab. :P This is bordering on a bribe!
