Store & Points Discussion and Support Thread! (Updated 7/30/06)
Please monitor this thread for all store announcements!
Well the Store is back with loads of new features! By posting messages and replying, you can accumulate points. What can you do with these points you ask? Well...
Where is the store?!
Look in the navigation bar at the top of the forums - it is the option that says "vbPlaza Menu" with a drop-down menu.
What to do with points - Options:
Buy stuff! - items right now include:
User Title Options:
...And CD's, DVD's, and other items! Check them out in the Music, DVDs, and Misc. categories!
Item pricing can be viewed in the categories from the Store's main menu. Prices are subject to change at any time!
What to do with points - Main Options:
Donate - feeling generous? Donate points to another member!
Bank - save your points for a rainy day. Put them in the bank and every 2 days they will get interest.
Thief - if you're feeling evil, you can steal points from another member! But, it only works 49% of the time - slightly less than half. And if it does fail, the person you tried to steal from will get the points you tried to steal!
Disabled Options: (Might be enabled in the future!)

Other Important Things to Note:
There's a 3% "Federal" tax on all items.
Most individual items have their own tax on top of that. If you have the points needed to purchase an item, but it says you don't have enough points, then you're probably not factoring in the tax.
Occasionally there may an unannounced sale on items in the store for a short duration. There will also occasionally be announced times when the Thief success percentage will be raised for short durations.

We're no longer doing these. If you've done them, they're not lost though.
Once you have enough points to order a real item such as a DVD or CD, during the order process you will be asked for your shipping address. This must be correct or else you will not receive your item! After submitting your information, you will receive an e-mail acknowledgement. Please allow us up to 4 weeks to fulfill your order. It may take some time for you to receive your item, especially for international shipments.
We can not be responsible for incorrect addresses or lost shipments. If you think you submitted an incorrect address, please e-mail us as soon as possible using the Contact Us link at the bottom of the forums.
Other minor details:
- If you create a thread and an unregistered user views it, you will receive the view points
- Everything is non-refundable! Once you've bought it, it's yours.
- Certain things, such as color selections, can not be changed once you've bought it! You'll have to buy it again to choose a color. So purchase wisely ;)
- When items run out of stock, their quantities replenish at an unknown amount of time right now :s2smile:. This does NOT apply to non-forum related items though, such as CDs, DVDs, etc. - we have to get those ourselves - and also does not apply to Thief, Bank, or Donate because they are unlimited.
- Point accumulation and item pricing may be tweaked in the future as we see fit.
- Administrators can also deduct points from a user for reasons including (but not limited to): not using the Edit function, spamming, flaming, trolling, cheating. The amount deducted is at the Administrator's discretion.
Enjoy and start saving! Any questions, problems, or suggestions, reply here.

FYI guys, for any function that uses color, you can use HTML color codes.
Where it asks for the color, simply copy and paste one of these codes:
for your desired color. This will allow you to select a wider range of colors. Enjoy :s2smile:
