Fully integrated with vBulletin and easily integrated with third party scripts:
Many hacks allow you to specify a points system by entering the table and column for the points data. Use TABLE: user COLUMN: credits when integrating vBCredits with such hacks (note: you may need to include your table prefix with some hacks)! If you are unsure about integration - ask me!

Why is this version not the gold version yet?
vBCredits 1.4rc1 went through a long bugtesting process at the official site, and rc2 is largely bug free in its entirety. However, *it is missing most of the admin help and post/thread deletion actions are temporarily removed while I figure out how to fix them.

Footnotes:
Thank you for using vBCredits, I would be happy to hear your feedback and correct anything that comes up. For more tailored support, please indicate you have installed this hack, and if you like it you can nominate this for MOTM. Use of this free hack requires that you retain the copyright line at the bottom of the forum (PM me otherwise). If you do not agree with this, please do not use vBCredits - thank you for your understanding and support!

I'll post new screenshots for this system shortly.

08 Mar 2008, 00:08
oh, also a quick note - as vb3.7 goes gold (as well as vbcredits 1.4 gold) then the 3.7 flavor of vbcredits will expand into the new features in 3.7 :-p as of right now, this is identical to the 3.6 version, except for a bunch of compatibility changes of course.

ill be updating the 3.6 version to 1.4rc2 in a moment, still checking to make sure the instructions are good there :)

Oh this is great Darkwaltz.
I will mark this one installed and mark the 3.6.x one as uninstalled, because I'm running 3.7.0 b5 now.

I have a little issue with credits and the "prevent doublepost" mod, but will post that one on vbcredits.com later tonight when it comes back online or otherwise tomorrow. It's not a big issue on my forums.

Clicking MOTM now.:)

Triad³ is a different hack where it is a web version of Triple Triad (a mini game from the FF8 video game). The stores will be vBCommerce and vBCustomizer where the former will be in beta soon.

After importing the integration addon for vbcredits and vbookie, you have to select the "blank" option from the points selection setting. while there, you can select No for displaying vcash.

keep in mind that addon will only set the hack to start using vbcredits and ignore its native vcash. if you want to convert your vcash points into vbcredits, the converter is here:
http://www.vbcredits.com/forum/showthread.php?t=173
however it will not delete the vcash (only increase user accounts by that amount)

Darkwaltz4
08 Mar 2008, 22:36
are you kidding?? users have been able to donate to each other since 1.0
whenever there is a user's account amount somewhere, it should have a donate link near it.

in regards to the unregistered/logged in missing vbcredits settings - that is intentional. why would guests have any access to vbcredits? they cant have accounts... so cant earn or spend..

also, vbcredits.com appears to be fully restored now :D so all the links work

Same problem with the credits not defined issue. Some users are having the error and some aren't. One person's problem went away after I fiddled around with her profile some but I didn't really change anything. The users that are having the problem can go to the site if they clear their cookies but then they get the error message when they log in.

09 Mar 2008, 01:15
you should not be loading any forum pages during install, which is why those errors occur

in fact you are encouraged to close your board to avoid the same problem :D

its not really an error - just the xml hasnt run to apply what should be there when you ARE running the pages on a normal basis.

as for the valifields error - i think i have an idea on how to fix it :D will post in a bit (lots going on!!)

I had the board shut off at the time.

I think what i need to do possibly is return the bitfield to the original spec maybe??? I changed it to conform to the Beta series.

Darkwaltz4
09 Mar 2008, 03:12
you should switch back to the original bitfield_vbulletin.xml file.

however, it wouldnt be a database error you would get..

hello, i've found a bug,

To avoid {1} {2} penalty for each active loan, you must pay back at least the minimum in each amount column by {3}. You can initiate automatic payments by entering a number of days, or use 0 for single payments. These can be changed or stopped at any time by entering a new number.

{3} shows as 1970-01-30

:-p well, actually refreshing the page should have been enough.

you see, due to mysql limitation, i had to make interest be individual and not global... (i had such an awesome query too!! :()

so now each user has a timestamp, and the forum has a timestamp, and those are constantly bouncing off against each other

when starting out, users have the timestamp of 0.. which was in 1970 :-p

do you mean the reply button vanished, or the post award icon vanished?
if the icon vanished, make sure you set nonzero limits for the post award system for your usergroup (presumably admin)

people having trouble with the $validfields thing, try this:

vBCredits - Define User DM Fields

with the following

$this->validfields['credits'] = array(TYPE_NUM, REQ_NO);
$this->validfields['credits_canearn'] = array(TYPE_BOOL, REQ_NO);
$this->validfields['credits_canspend'] = array(TYPE_BOOL, REQ_NO);

vBCredits 1.4rc2 has been updated to rev1.

This minor release only addresses the 2 common upgrade problems people have been having.
Unless you are getting a database error during upgrade or have errors regarding $validfields, you do not need to apply this update.

If you wish to apply the rev1 over 1.4rc2, only the files credits_plugins.php and functions_credits.php need to overwritten to complete the update. If you have not upgraded to 1.4rc2 yet, then follow the full regular upgrade/install instructions.

Thank you for your quick reply. Yes stupid me it was my admin permissions. I realized when i logged in as another member and could see the credits!!

Just one last thing though if you don't mind? I do not see the credit image displayed anywhere on my forum but unlike the screen shots i have a link "check" by the credits in the nav bar is this right? also the links for donate in the post bits are in text form?

Darkwaltz4
12 Mar 2008, 00:43
no; since you fixed it with the previous little patch, you shouldnt be getting $validfield errors anymore :-p and so dont need to apply rev1.

but if you did do the patch, and want rev1 (which also fixes the problem of any plugins failing to execute [which is what the validfields error was an extension of], as well as a very trivial divide by zero potential error) then go ahead and import the product file again along with copying those two edited files :-p and thats it.

when i enter to some threads that other users open i get this error:


Warning: Division by zero in /includes/functions_credits.php on line 28

Unable to add cookies, header already sent

File: /home/root1/domains/root.co.il/public_html/forums/includes/class_core.php

but if i enter to my own threads it's work fine.

so, what can i do to solve this problem?

*sorry for my bad English.

Darkwaltz4
12 Mar 2008, 19:21
romanticyao - you only need to apply rev1 if you are getting a database error about missing column credits_interest, or if users on your board are getting login errors that deal with $validfields. if none of that is happening, you dont need to worry about the little update.

BBF - in the main vbcredits setting is the number of valid referrals per referral point. you have it set to 0. it should be 1 or higher. (i forgot to put a thing to validate that particular setting). if you dont want to award for referrals, make sure the award amount in the usergroup options is 0, not that global setting.

You know, when Darkwaltz4 makes a credits mod, he's not fooling anyone! Anything involving "credits" (except the store mod, soon to come), its in here! Crazy amount of ways to award credits, Bank, Loans, Lottery (Drawings), Donations... Just about anything you can think of (or in my case, all I could think of!)!!!

I searched on google and came across this thread which says mod_security rules cause these types of errors and i followed the steps as specified here:

http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=197290

But then i started getting "Internal Server Error". So for the time being i have disabled those links in the navbar i.e.:
Code:

[<a href="credits.php?$session[sessionurl]do=banking">$vbphrase[check]</a>]<if condition="$show['credits_purchase']"> [<a href="credits.php?$session[sessionurl]do=manage#purchase">$vbphrase[purchase]</a>]</if>

I dont' know which other links point to the credits.php class and i hope they might be failing as well.

So, I would appreciate if someone can give me some resolution to this issue.

Thanks

first, make sure you are applying the installation for vb3.7, this is the vb3.6 version. (the link is in the top post at the top ) make sure you are using rc2. check that the credits.php file is uploaded to your forum root folder. if you are using a hack which is not in your forum root folder (cmps pages and the galleries are common examples) your links in the navbar will be wrong - edit the navbar template to include your whole forumpath.


I am using the latest release for 3.7 i.e vBCredits 1.4rc2 (rev1) vb3.7.I do have credits.php in the right place as well, for instance check this:
Works Fine:
http://www.cricfever.com/forum/credits.php

Does not Work:
http://www.cricfever.com/forum/credits.php?do=banking

I installed this before i installed CMPS and i had the same issues, so i dont think this issue has anything related to the CMPS as you can see from the link above. For sure its related to the mod_security thing i guess.
Any ideas now ... thanks again.

hmm, error 406, not acceptable.

check your vbcredits templates, and revert any custom ones you have saved over a default one. if the problem persists, send me an admin login and i will poke around a bit until i find the solution :)

thanks for moving your question to this thread!

I haven't found a moment to install your Mod and look where the conflict is. If you want any information on the vbPortal side please ask.

The reason why there is a blank portal page when using this add-on is due to the followong code at the beginning of plugins/credits_plugin.php


if (!defined('VB_AREA'))
{
exit;
}

The page is blank because VB_AREA is not defined. vbPortal is not a VB_AREA, but it does use THIS_SCRIPT constant. Changing the above code to

if (!defined('VB_AREA') AND !defined('THIS_SCRIPT'))
{
exit;
}

stops the exit and displays vbPortal. Looking at the add-ons code, the credits.php page has THIS_SCRIPT defined, so the above change doesn't affect this page, but I haven't any experience with the add-on to know if more testing is needed to ensure that line doesn't have unexpected results.

Darkwaltz4
23 Mar 2008, 17:09
uh, is vbportal including global.php from vb? if it did, vbarea gets defined.

the reason the vbarea conditional is there is so that the file cant be called outside of a vb powered page (directly)

i would recommend that vbportal be the one to change to be properly integrated with vb, and i dont anticipate adding that fix into later versions of vbcredits...

vbPortal doesn't include vB's global.php when viewing the portal pages hence why VB_AREA is not defined.

The code change suggestion would be the same as whats at the top of vBs init.php script. There is no need for vbPortal or add-ons to define VB_AREA if they are not in the VB_AREA, such as outside the forums.

I do not understand you not wanting to change one line of code, but this is your add-on. Thanks for your reply, I will post the one line fix at the vbPortal forum rather than users disable (http://www.phpportals.com/forums/showthread.php?postid=109311) your add-on.

Darkwaltz4
23 Mar 2008, 18:05
well lets dissect this...

if the site shows up blank when using vbcredits, vbportal must be trying to run hooks from vbulletin.

if its running hooks from vbulletin, but not using global.php, then its integration must only be partial

if its partial, then its potentially dangerous, and they should just switch to using global.php, and everyone is happy

if i were to fix that one line, then i would be condoning and encouraging potentially dangerous partial integration with vbulletin, and by extension, vbcredits :D

i think with a hack starting with vb- it should be fully integrated. vbadvanced cmps has no issues doing it right. VB_AREA isnt that its in a "vb area" but that its in a vb-powered page. actual values set to VB_AREA include "forum" and "admin control panel", so "portal" could be acceptable... but simply not using it isnt.

It is init.php that requires the class_core.php and sets up sessions, the database and also fetches the config.php file (almost everything). vbPortal has its own global.php ;)

24 Mar 2008, 19:46
you know what, for the sake of ending this tangent, i looked at how vb escapes from invalid cron file access.

}


i will be changing it to that :) unless vbportal doesnt have that??

Hi, i'm sorry i have a question (sorry for my english).

I would like to limit the albums for my users (and maybe also other functionnalities of the 3.7 rc) and use vbcredits to give them more possibilites. For ex:
- more albums
- more pictures per album
- more possibilities for their own profile
- later found a solution to give them a mail@mywebsite.com , discounts

It is possible to do that actually?

I found for albums this mod: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=170720 in this case could it be use with vbcredits?

Darkwaltz4
27 Mar 2008, 19:07

Any idea when the full version will be released, as I wouldn't have thought there'd be much difference from the latest version, as Release Candidate 2 of vB Credits 1.4 is just about the best modification yet released for vBulletin... Or vB Commerce/Customiser, since those haven't had too many updates... and will they be released here or at vBcredits.com?

Darkwaltz4
07 Apr 2008, 00:22
theres one major thing missing from 1.4 final, and there are some new set of bugs that have been found in rc2 as well, but thankfully mostly trivial and/or only affect unusual cases. otherwise its pretty stable, so i released it here. there wont be anything new in 1.4 final (hence the rc series :-p) just fixes.

as for vbcommerce/vbcustomizer, we probably wont release them here at vborg, but they will still be free (more information will be announced on site later). vborg staff also requested i remove the references for those hacks in the main release posts on vborg due to too many linkbacks, among other things. so.. you will have to continue to use vbcredits.com for news on those things now, sorry :-/

if you were using vbcredits 1.4rc1 with vb3.7, you had to change the bitfield_vbulletin.xml file.

Darkwaltz4
16 Apr 2008, 21:41
first, go to the banned usergroup and select to "exclude from richest user list"

then, in the specialty settings, you can adjust how many members to list, default is 10.

alternatively, you could select to add credits to your memberlist in the memberlist settings, and in the memberlist it will list credits for everyone, and allow you to order by it :D (to create a toplist of your entire board)

After step 7, I see that vbcretics is shown in my Admin Control Panel.

Thank you for the quick response. I thought those are the edits relating to stop #2. So I thought since my version is 3.6.9, I don't need to make those changes.

For I need to make those changes in all files mentioned. So for clarification, I need to edit those files and add the codes mentioned in the install menu.

I personally think vB Credits should get a Premium Modification forum at vBulletin.org like ibpArcade and such like, since it has enough general popularity to rival more than half the mods last given a forum before they were archived, and has more use than a few portal systems (one of which was after a point not even distributed here), a warning system and other such point and shop systems...

Hi DarkWaltz4,

Firstly, well done on the great add-on :)

I just have a styling question related to the copyright notice to do with VBCredits - as you can see, with the style I have as our default, the branding font/colour differs from other text in the footer, and it is positioned isolated smack bang in the center.

http://www.theparentingsanctuary.com.au/forums

How can I alter/relocate this so that it matches my template better? I would like it to be on the left hand side and in the same font/colour as the other text there.

Cheers :)

you may even want to remove the

number of referrals per referral point needs to be 1 or higher, not 0. (in either main or award settings of vbcredits). if you dont want to award for referrals, use a value of 0 in the usergroup award setting for referrals instead.

did you upload the credits.php page to your forum root? and also, please try to ask your questions in the thread of the vbcredits version you are using - you asked this in the vb3.6 thread too, and i dont want to give you the wrong advice.




Also, I was afraid the new security in vb3.7rc4 would affect *something*.

Turns out there is a problem with the automatic navbar refresh feature for vb3.7 in vbcredits 1.4rc2. Until I introduce the full fix for this, you will need to turn it off by using 0 seconds for the automatic navbar refresh which should be in the main settings for vbcredits.

I'm having a hard time getting vBCredits to display on my forum. I recently upgraded my forum to 3.7.0 and am using the latest version of vBCredits (1.4 RC2). I made all the necessary template changes to one of my templates, but the credits of users don't appear anywhere on my forum. What's wrong?

Darkwaltz4
01 May 2008, 04:28
1) in the main global settings: is visibility set to private or everyone?

2) in usergroup settings: is your group or groups that members you are looking at set to excluded from vbcredits?

3) are you in a forum which is set to not display credit amounts?

how easy is it to install for a non-programmer / semi newbie ?

Darkwaltz4
01 May 2008, 11:48
well, i would say about intermediate, however the instructions are explained in great detail so as long as you were able to install your forums in the first place, you should be able to handle installing this :)

of course, if you have trouble you only need to ask.

also, thanks everyone for voting vbcredits for vb3.7 MOTM april 2008 :D

i cant speak for v2, but in v1.x there was fields for changing the points field, in which case you would use 'credits' (no quotes) for it.

of course, even the creator admits that you shouldnt be using v1 due to security issues, so...

Thanks

yes, but you may have to deduct credits from a person manually depending on what you are offering

for that just upload the new set of files and import the product again. i think one or 2 template edits might need to be changed - only the MEMBERINFO one comes to mind, but compare between the two instructions. none of your accounts or settings will be lost.

Sorry i don't understand! :(

you may have to go into each user's profile to deduct credits from their account when they buy something from you. for now anyway.

Darkwaltz4
03 May 2008, 20:13
njoker555 - you will have to install this version otherwise you will get bitfield collision problems down the road - which will prevent you from installing hacks :p not to mention theres some template changes which better fit the vb3.7 templates, like the profile. it will not affect your accounts or settings if you basically follow the upgrade instructions, but use the installation template edits from the vb3.7 version to double-check your edits are still there.

those links show up based on your permissions. for example, if your usergroup is allowed to see the transaction logs of others, the check link will appear. if you can donate to that person, the donate link will appear.

in the usergroup options is the set of limits for the post award system. using non-zero values will give the power to award other users from within threads and profiles that does not come from your account. look for the gold icon to appear in your postbits, similar to what shows in that screenshot above.

My memberlist options show that everybody is allowed to view credits. What I'm I doing wrong? I don't get the graphic, but it shows the credit amount.

Darkwaltz4
04 May 2008, 03:24
i said those things are determined by the usergroup permissions :) for check to show up - usergroup must be able to view everyone's transaction logs. for donate to show up, usergroup must have a nonzero donation limit, and donations must be enabled in the specialty settings for vbcredits.

dailyyeah
04 May 2008, 03:27
Yeah, i'm logged in admin and said yes to admin's usergroups(even to view transaction logs), but it still doesn't work. Also, the coin doesn't even show up.

Darkwaltz4
04 May 2008, 03:29
the coin only appears when you have nonzero limits for the post award system in the usergroup settings.

i would like to propose that you come talk to me over IM (handles in my profile), and i will walk you through what you should be looking for, and if there is a problem you can give me a login to make sure there isnt any new bugs.

Trying to upgrade but having problems.
When I import the products-credits file, I get this error:

A conflict was detected in the bitfields. You cannot continue with the installation of this product until this has been fixed. The conflicts found were:
Bitfield Collision: prefixrequired = credits_cantearn

I tried to install the blog add on too and get the same problems when importing.

Any ideas what the problem is.

This version is made specifically to work with vb3.7 and was verified to work on it (naturally :p). There are some extremely minor bugs left which have been reported to me (if you find more please tell me!), but the main bug which is holding back from a gold version release has been removed for the rc2 version while i recode it. it was in the code for threads/posts get moderated. now, moderation does nothing automatically while i work to recode it for 1.4 gold. otherwise, even banking and loans are fully operational :D

A few comments and a problem!.

While this is an OUTSTANDING script I really wish you guys would have spent time on the store that has been in the works forever. Personally, I feel you guys have made this WAY TOO complex. Again, it is an OUTSTANDING script and I am grateful. I have been willing to pay $50-$100 for an amazing store for nearly a year now. You have one part of what I feel is a two part program. What good is "cash" if there is no where to spend it?

My problem is that my admins can see the "donate" button in the POSTBIT, but no one else can. I have checked all of the settings and the Usergroups and I don't see anwhere to set it up so everyone can donate. Any idea? Is donate the only way to send money? Or is there a "sent Cash" feature. Technically, you are not donating when you are buying something.

Darkwaltz4
08 May 2008, 08:24
More like three part, but let's not get into it. Not everyone will want a bulky shop(s) with their points system :p this gives them the option to install as much of the eventual package as they would like, and let's face it: the points earning part needs to be finished first and the most solid part of it. There are other addons you could use this with; pretty popular are the addons for the arcades for example.

Also, I agree with you that it is too complex, however I have incorporated a lot of suggestions, and I have another large list to include as well :p I am thinking of ways to condense how it works without losing the dynamic functionality it has, largely planned for the next major release of vBCredits which will be rewritten from the core. If you have any ideas to contribute to that effort by all means tell me as I am very interested and open to them :)

As for your donation problem, sounds like you have set the maximum donation limit to 0 in the usergroup settings of the non-admin groups :D

Isn't the usergroup thing in vB Commerce or Customiser? I know the first one is in the pay modification vB Limiter or something, but isn't the second one in one of the free shop systems being developed for vB Commerce?

And by written from the core, you mean like vBulletin 2 -> 3 or vBulletin 3 -> as in, nearly everything changed? Like vB Credits 2.0?

Darkwaltz4
08 May 2008, 10:44
well charging to view content is my content merchants pro addon. buying paid subscriptions with credits will be an itemtype in vbcommerce. both should be discussed at my site :p

and yes, rewritten basically on how it saves credits... right now its kind of had an addon approach, where new features have for the most part been added onto the original code. now that there is a large bunch of stuff, i will revise how all of it fits together and simplify how you set it up. i basically never expected or programmed for some of the things that it is expanding into or what people want, for example micrologs for all earnings. also some features which are becomming their own major systems will be modularized and expanded on their own (I may even remove them from the main hack in favor of addon status, such as the bank, lottery or post award system, especially since those 3 tend to be used by less than the majority so may as well speed up the main hack by making them even more optional). that kind of stuff needs an overhaul of the entire system, and indeed the next major version of vbcredits will be 2.0 :p however, I havent begun development on it yet (beyond some notes) and dont expect to for some time; theres a huge list of stuff everyone else wants first ;)

Hi Darkwaltz,

Thanks for your response. I have checked over the above settings and they all appear to be in order - visibility is set to "everyone", and the example usergroup (Admin, which I am part of) is set to "no" regarding being excluded from VBPoints. I can't see the other 2 admin's credits on their profile and they are part of the same group with that setting.

So I am not too sure what else it could be.

Would appreciate any further help in identifying the problem!

Cheers :)

I may have missed a setting somewhere so forgive me if this is what it is. However, the default negative post awards (for deleted posts, etc) seem to also effect the usergroup induction credit when they are removed from it. Is there a way to exempt usergroup from the negative awards?

and about that mod .. how can i Remove the Arcade Pass?? or even change the value of it?

well, please continue arcade support in the arcade addon threads. to remove the arcade pass (or change the value of it), it should show up in the usergroup settings after you have fully installed the vbcredits arcade integration addons. there you can set the price to whatever you want, or 0 to disable access to it.

Out of curiousty, when do you think this will be golden for 3.7?

I am working on vBCommerce among other things right now, so I expect during the summer when I get back to vBCredits.

vBCredits 1.4rc2 is stable except for the negation awards for threads and posts. I have removed that section of the code while I work on it, so at least the problem is neutralized in rc2, as opposed to buggy in rc1. I believe using this in a production environment should be alright, as the only thing you will have to keep an eye on is credit amounts during post maintenance (you will have to deduct credits manually). Thankfully, the post award system can be used for this right from within threads too.

Other than for some minor rare aesthetic bugs, thats the only reason it isnt gold right now, but of course if you find anything else please tell me somewhere :D

yes but it could have been set to put in just one place, that i would not have been bothered about.. look at ibProArcade v2.6.7+ it is just on the one page..



nice and clean .. much better. and that does not show on the portal page but your does..

:(

Well, they both put their URL on the pages that each mod uses. The Arcade only uses one area of the forum, so it only puts the URL there. vBCredits, on the other hand, uses almost every aspect of your forum, so the copyright is everywhere it's being used.

& vbcredits is Excellent Mod ... ;)

Thanks guys, you're very welcome! :)

Why I delete my member's post, they credits don't reduce?
Please help me
my "Award Negation Multiplier" setting is "-1" but don't reduce credits

Thanks

Due to a bug in rc1 (and the only reason this is still rc2) post/thread negation has been temporarily disabled while I work on it. It will be fixed before I call it gold :p

well no, but it shouldnt normally be a guest. you can select which user account to send it from in the main global settings. im considering some sort of option feature for that in the next major release.

yeah I left that feild blank as I thought It would send from the sender but I'll just use an Admin Account i guess..

Also when I delete posts too it's not deducting the credits, I've got the settings as -1 ..EDIT: i've just notticed your post on sombody else saying it's a bug

small update re our website, we're currently moving it over to a new 8 Core Server with lots of ram, and faster lines, to make up for loads we've been having on the site. We're currently waiting for our domains to switch. Sorry for any issues this may of caused as far as site content goes. I'll have us backup once the move is done.

:) cant wait to see the improvement in speed etc!

Now let me ask you Darkwaltz4 when i set up a Drawing and go to by some Tickets i can see how big the Jackpot is at that point. Is it possible to have xxx Credits Jackpot shown somewhere else at the same time, like under my credits balance in the nav bar?

something like:
Private Messages:
Credits: xxxx [Check]
xxx Credits Jackpot

I've been following vbcredits since it started and from what I understand it will have all of those and more. vbcommerce will be much better than plaza (which is not a slam against vbplaza.)

That is why Im not switching to vbcredits just yet. They keep saying their working on a gift shop like vbplaza but its been almost a year if Im not mistaken and still no gift shop.

A lot of their last year was probably spent working on mods and not releasing them, or releasing vB Credits Release Candidate 2, or vB Triple Triad, so they probably do have other stuff to worry about. Still want vB Commerce and Customiser though, since said mods will have all the stuff people here seem to be wanting and can't describe properly...

Their making sure the core script is as perfect as possible first. Too much hinges on vBCredits being completely stable. Something a lot of the other point systems didn't do starting out.
