I don't want to look like a dummy here - at least not any more than I really am - lol, but what in blazes is the Gold System, and how do we use it?

I noticed that in you'r settings that you can buy stuff with the gold. Like for 10,000 a title. For about 1,000 a sig, 2,000 a remote avatar. There is probally more but i noticed that.

The gold system distributes points for using the burial-grounds website. each time you post a messaege in the forums, submit news, and post comments on news or use the chatbox, you gain points. Points can then be used to customize your display name color and even change it if you want, upload a custom avatar, or create a new signature, as well as create a custom title. Most of the old timers here have most of this in place already, but if you want to make changes, or if you have never customized any of this in the past, it will now cost "gold". It's just an incentive to get people to post a little more and a fun way to use the forums I think. I intend to make a stickey thread about the subject soon.

I recently did some upgrading to the backend code of the website, and added this functionality, as well as a few other features in preperation of the release of Quake Wars. It's still a few months off, but it's good to work the bugs out in things like this before hand :) I'm hoping the burialgrounds commuinity grows and stays active once quake wars is out, so everything I do going forward will be in an effort to make that happen.

oh, yes...forgot about that. you can donate gold to the needy!

I can also add additional gold for good deeds as I see fit, and will also be using the system in the future for other neat stuff to spend your gold on :)
