    Hey guys,

    Is the money at the top right of the forums actual money or is it supposed to be used for things on the website? Just curious!

    Its virtual money. Right now it can only be used for two things. Bragging rights and the Sportsbook. http://www.gearheadcentral.com/index.php?sportsbook/

    I was wondering just the same when I began to earn virtual money, but I found the sportsbook fact in a related thread posted a few time back.

    However I didn't know about bragging rights, so thanks for the information :)

    You said "right now", so in the near future, are you planning on giving the money feature other uses?

    I will look at other options for it down the road. One could be to buy a short membership for the private member section (when created) which the Founding Members will have free access to it.

    I will look in to options at the site grows.

    Well I think that is an interesting idea. You have a great forum and whatever you do decide I'm sure will be a great idea.

    I would be right in thinking any money won on bets in the sportsbook would be virtual money too?. I like the idea of it though it makes this site more interesting.

    Yes that is right. But at some point there will be some other things the virtual money will but able to be used for. So it still has value on the forum.

    Bragging is kinda like showing off. Showing off your forum riches.

    Lol. Not yet. But it will grow. And with the sportbook it can climb fast or drop like a rock.

    I also have to check your account. I give all new users $1000 when they start. I have a lot of new members that u didn't give that to yet.

    Yes. But just for fun. Uses forum money.
