Just follow the directions carefully in the zip based on whether you are clean installing or upgrading

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.

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!

thanks anyway, and no worries. we're in the process of streamlining vbcredits currenlty to make it easier to get updates out. Should make it easier to support 3rd party addons like the stock market and other easier.

We've discussed making our own addons later for systems like this. Currently the focus is streamlining this mod to make it easer for end users to install and setup. Darks working on some amazing stuff for this currently. Including vbcommerce which is best left for discussion on our site.

In vBCredits v1.3 there are two options regarding earning reputation points:
  • 1. Positive Reputation Credit (Awarded when these users receive positive reputation.)
  • 2. Negative Reputation Credit (Awarded when these users receive negative reputation. You probably want this to be negative as a penalty.)
So when I recalculate user credits in "Update Counters", users will get correct amount of credits (positive amount of credits for positive reputation and negative amount of credits for negative reputation).

In vBCredits v1.4rc2 there is only one option regarding earning reputation points:
  • 1. Received Reputation Credit (Applied when the user receives reputation. Can be set to multiply against the amount of reputation received.)
In "Configure Award Settings" is also "Award Negation Multiplier" which is responsible for realtime earning negative amount of credits for negative reputation (that works fine), but when I use "Mass Credit Updater" for recalculate amount of credits earned for reputation points, then every reputation is awarded by positive amount of credits - by other words every neutral (from users without possibility to spread reputation points yet) and even negative reputation is awarded by positive amount of credits :-(. Darkwaltz4, please, Is it real bug or there is something else for adjusting this?
sounds like a bug.. ill look into it and post to my bug tracker if you havent already.

as for the award change in reputation, giving negative rep is awarded as (negation multiplier) * (positive reputation award), if reputation is checked as an applicable negation award in the global award settings for vbcredits.

members get credits for no reason at all.
what to do?
sounds like you enabled the post award system unlimitedly for regular members. if you send me an admin login i can take a look at your settings to make sure.

Also, I know that the same post keeps getting linked in response to this, but I fail to find the answer in the post or on the vbcredits website, but what can the credits be used for? vbcredits just does the points, but vbcommerce is what can turn points into money to be spend on little user-made shops on the forums, right? How do users go about making these shops, and where are members' owned items stored or displayed?
Generally "vBCredits" does not appear on the public forum area except in the copyright line. The term for points "Credits" is a phrase and can be easily changed in your language manager. This phrase is also linked to in the very first option in the global vbcredits settings.

vBCredits is a points system. You can use these points for pretty much anything, only some of which ive made myself for everyone else. You dont have to wait for me to integrate them with something else, and theres more to spending points than for postbit icons Theres even a few other existing shops which can be configured to use credits if you really wanted. For full list of whats already available and whats in development (as well as where you can suggest more) go to

I have the negation award= -1

whats wrong
in 1.4rc1 there were some fatal bugs with the negation of post/thread awards. as a temporary fix i removed that functionality so that you could at least delete that stuff again without problems. it will be returned fixed in the final version.

Is there a system in the hack or an extra addon which people could use there points to promote themselves.

I currently run a site where people get extra content when they are promoted. After a month they get sent back to their original group just like a subscription. So is it possible for the members to use up points to get promoted?
not yet, but on the list of things im working on.
I probably want my scripts to work on your site more than you do!

What is the max amount of credits allowed? One user maxed out at 3 billion and it reset it. Is there a way to make the amount more?

3 billion? im pretty certain ive gotten it up to like 100+ places and i just stopped trying to get any higher. It is possible that the exact max is specified by your mysql server settings for the signed DOUBLE datatype.

I think the only way to allow upwardly more is to require you to have a arbitrary precision math module installed with your php, but thats server intensive and personally unncessary - i recommend that you consider scaling your award/cost amounts down a bit instead.

Do you have any publicly joinable usergroups at your forum? Because if so, I heard that might be how they got so many credits, so you should scale down all the usergroup credit options and not just the default ones.
