    correct me if i am wrong,

    but i think they will eventually be used to buy things, for example maybe access to a certain forum? or other things like that.

    the best guess that i have.

    That sure seems logical. Maybe they actually dont know what they want to use them for.

    Well since they are like brand new, i wouldn't imagine you could find it readily, but I think maybe it's just for props right now.

    Props would be nice, I know I have a high credits. But that could be bad who knows. I guess we wont find out for a while.

    HaRRo mentioned in IRC that we will eventually be able to buy thing with our credits.

    Anyone notice that it costs 1 credit to send a PM? I've only got 9 left haha, what the fuck do I do to receive more credits?

    edit: after posting this message I seem to have 19 credits :D sweet

    Never know, eventually you may have to buy credits to post.. Maybe they will charge 25 credits to post... ehh, who know...Capitalism at its finest. :noidea:

    If that's true, how many people do you think are going to run up their post count just to get enough credits to buy something?

    That's funny, I was just thinking about this the other day and was wondering what they are for. I think the download credit idea would be closest...as for buying things...I'm sure it won't be like you can buy a BHW tshirt or something, lol.

    I sense that credits will end up getting sold, so let's start the bidding at $1,000 for my 118 points :D ;) J/K

    I don't think credits will be sold but if you "donate", they will probably give you some credits :D

    For now, i don't see any need for the credits except for sending PM.

    Anyone yet use the the saving features? Maybe not as no one yet reach minimum 500 points. But it will be soon. Do you guys think the saving features is feasible? Seems that the fees are quite high....

    LOL....thats is way higher than any Credit Cards charges out there....

    Anyway, i got a thinking that they will only allow you to access certain section of the forum when only you attained enough credits.
