Your content is appreciated. Each one of you who logs on here and gets conversation started plays a key role in the advancement of this site and should be rewarded as such. This December the system will recognize the users who make this site what it is. It will highlight key threads and assign reward points as appropriate. At the end of the month each user who earned points may cash them in for entries into group breaks. Here the points will have an approximate value of $1 per point.
The system is set up to reward for overall participation. This includes nearly every aspect of this website. Facebook shares, facebook posts, twitter mentions... all this we attempt to find and assign a value to. The rating of threads is also important to the system as this is what flags a thread for a reward.
If you have a referral and they surpass 100 posts that will award you $5 in Ebay bucks. If this happens please contact a moderator so we can verify and award you your FCB Bucks.
Points ARE transferable. You may include them in trades.
HOW POINTS ARE EARNED
We will never disclose all the variables for earning points on this site. It's a system that users could crack and take advantage of if too much information was out there. We will however highlight a few things that will help your experience and get you on the fast track to earning FCB Reward Bucks.
#1 Starting new and relevant topics. This is the absolute most important thing that you as a user can do here. Topics that generate several pages of discussion are vital to the success of the site and they are heavily weighted in the program. I should note that uninteresting topics that do not generate conversation are almost completely ignored by the system.
#2 Transactions. Use this site to buy/sell/trade and you will accumulate points. The system combs the feedback system to look for people who are successfully trading.
#3 Use Social Media. Tweets that point to threads using the @fcbsportscards mention are tracked and given rewards. Make sure your twitter handle is in your profile here so we know who to award the points to. The same thing applies to facebook.
#4 Do something useful. There is also a manual component to the site where we can manually award points to users. Actions within the community that add to the culture here are appreciated and rewarded.
#5 eBay links. It's no secret that this site is funded by those links. Post them in threads where relevant and the system will reward you.
Check back with this thread from time to time... you may have some points to spend.
