Recommended Posts

I am pleased to announce a few changes to the forum: 

  • Premium Memberships are now treated as subscriptions rather than store products, this simplifies the purchasing process, adds extra features, and more accurately reflects what they are
  • We've added a new full featured chat: Chat - CamCaps.Net
  • We've added Google as an Oauth provider so that you can sign in using your Gmail account 
  • We've added automatic moderation, any post with 5 or more reports is automatically hidden to help combat spam 
  • We've added a point system: Each reply is worth 5 points,  Joining a club is worth 10 points, you can redeem points in the "Members Shop" or donate them to others; more items to come
  • Video files can now be played from within posts using your browsers default HTML5 video player
  • The gallery has been updated to be more intuitive, support more file types, and it has an improved image viewer 
  • More updates to come!

Don't understand the point system or the benefit of it all (i.e. donate points).  If I earn (or donate points), what do I get, a cookie? 🙂 They can be redeemed for....? Do I even have any points (i.e. is this the same as 'reputation')?  Of all the problems in the world, now I have one more to think about. 🙂  

Seriously, can the sysop write a brief FAQ on the subject?

If you click on your Avatar your Profile Page should appear. Then you can see how many Points you have Accumulated.

Those Points can be used in the Members Shop.   There is a List of Items currently in there and more items will be added.   Members Shop - CamCaps.Net

If you Donate Points to another Member then the Member can use the Points you Donated to them for the same items. For example: If you wanted to get a Member to try Premium Access you could Donate 2,500 Points to that Member. That Member could use those Points to Purchase a Trial Premium Membership for 10 Days. After the 10 Days their Membership will revert back to Member Status from Premium Member.

Or you can just Accumulate your Points and then Bank them and Earn Interest on your Points to get extra Points.  Just like putting Cash in the Bank and Earning Interest. It's the same thing for Points but it's only Points.    https://camcaps.net/members/bank/

  1. Can I only earn points by replying and joining clubs or are there
    other ways, as well?
  2. What's the interest rate in the bank?
  3. Ten percent seems like a rather high broker's fee just to bank
    your points. Especially, since it's all automatic. How about 1%? 
  4. Can you add a field in Rewards & Logs to show what topic was
    replied to and make it link directly to that reply?
  5. I've never heard of clubs on CC, before. Who can start one, where
    and how?
  6. Can you hold onto your points indefinitely or do they go away if
    not used within a certain time period? Do you have to bank them
    in order to keep them?
  7. Who receives the points from the broker's fee in the bank and 
    what can they be used for?
  8. If 2500 points buy only a 10-day Premium Subscription, what
    would a full year cost?

Just off the top of my head. Thanks.

1.) Points are Earned by Posting in the Forum or Joining a Club. Those are the only 2 ways to Earn Points.

 Each Post made is Worth 5 Points, if you Join a Club then you get 10 Points.

2.) If you make a Deposit of your Points then there is a thing above Withdrawals that show the Interest Collected.

3.) @Admin would have to answer the Question.

4.) @Admin would have to Address this Question.

5.) Anyone can Start a Club. It can be found by Clicking the Clubs Tab in the Menu at the Top.

6.) You can hold onto your Points Indefinitely or You can Bank them or Donate them to Another Member if you chose to do so.

7.) @Admin would have Answer the Question.

8.) 2,500 Points can Purchase a 10 Day Premium Subscription.  If a member wants to Purchase a 1 Year Premium Subscription they would go to the Subscriptions Tab and Purchase a Subscription for $20.00

@Admin, I asked these questions of Stone and he said you would
need to answer questions 3, 4 & 7. Could you help us out, please?
Thank you.

We've added native embed support for the following sites: 

In plain English: If you paste a link to a video from one of these sites it will play right in the post, as opposed showing up as an external link.

Does that mean:

  1. We can use this technique in RLC video threads, instead of a
    third-party host?
  2. We can still download the video before it gets taken down?

I don't know much about embedding links. Thanks.

1. You can embed videos from those video sites anywhere in the forum 

2. It depends if the the site supports it. The videos are embedded so we have no control over them.
