Fusion wrote:A lot of users have been asking questions about forum ranks, gaining chao points and rings, and about the forum shop. I'm going to go over ranks, chao points, rings and the forum shop - hopefully this will answer everyone's questions.

To the left of every post, you should be able to see the poster's username, rank, avatar, join date, post-count, location, rings and chao points - as in the following image:

Image

Ranks
Underneath your username is your rank image and rank title. These are dependent on your post count - as you post more, the bar will fill up and your title will change at certain points. See this thread for the list of ranks.

This rank does nothing special - it is just an indication of how many posts you have. Spamming to increase your post count is against the rules and will result in punishment.

Special users (such as administrators and moderators) have unique ranks.

Chao points
Please note that this is currently disabled while The Moderators and Mooncow restore them from the site switchover
Alongside each of your posts, as you can see in the image above, is your number of chao points. These are points that you can spend in the forum shop.

You can gain chao points in the following ways:
  • By posting. You gain one chao point for each post you make - but you can only earn up to thirty each day!
  • By receiving them as donations from other users. By participating in (and winning) user events, for example.
  • By being awarded them by moderators for excellent behaviour, reporting many rule-breaking posts, etc.
You can lose chao points in the following ways:
  • By spending them in the forum shop.
  • By giving them as donations to other users (see below).
  • By having them removed by moderators as punishment for breaking the rules.
To donate your chao points to another user, click the [ Donate ] button alongside one of his/her posts. You can then decide how many to donate, and also send that user a message if you wish.

Rings
Please note that this is currently disabled while The Moderators and Mooncow restore them from the site switchover
Alongside each of your posts, as you can see in the image above, is your number of rings. You earn a ring when you post - but you can only gain one ring each day.
They currently do not actually do anything, but they may in future.

Forum shop
Please note that this is currently disabled while The Moderators and Mooncow restore them from the site switchover
You are able to spend chao points in the forum shop, to purchase items or special abilities in the shop - but those items need to be in stock.
You can access the forum shop via the Shops link at the top of each forum page.

The stores now get restocked daily. The fruit store has a delivery of five fruit per day (that's five of each fruit). The small animal store has three of each animal restocked per day, and the toy store has two of each item restocked per day! - Mooncow

Items
Please note that this is currently disabled while The Moderators and Mooncow restore them from the site switchover
Items can now be traded with, or given to another member! There may be a use for the items in the future, but currently, these items are just for show/collecting. - Mooncow

Chao dice
Please note that this is currently disabled while Mooncow looks into a possible glitch.
This is a game where you can gamble chao points - maybe you'll win it big, or maybe you'll lose everything. Make sure you're aware that you're risking losing your points - it's a game of luck.

The steps/rules of the game are (somewhat) simple - as follows:
  1. You choose a number of your chao points to bet.
  2. Four dice will be rolled. Cross your fingers and hope you get lucky!
    • If all the dice show different symbols, or you have only matched one pair - then unfortunately you have lost. The chao points that you bet will be removed. Gambling can be bad for you!
    • If you have matched two pairs of dice then you haven't lost, but you haven't won either. The chao points that you bet will be returned to you.
    • If three of the dice show identical symbols then you have won! The chao points that you bet will be multiplied by three and given back to you!
    • If all four of the dice show the same symbol then you have won! The chao points that you bet will be multiplied by four and given back to you! Congratulations on getting a perfect four!
    • If you get a perfect four (see above) and the symbol on the dice is the 'chao bonus' one, then your chao points will be multiplied again by two!
    • If you get a perfect four (see above) and the symbol on the dice is the 'chaos chao bonus' one, then your chao points will be multiplied again by four!
You can access the dice game via the Chao Dice link at the top of each forum page.

We don't have a chao shop anymore, it's been shut down because we updated the site and it messed it up.

To all those people who said "These items do nothing!? Why get them?" It shows you are dedicated to the site because you have lot of chao points to spend. :chaohappy:
Or... you just get everyone to donate to you. :darkblah:

Are chao points still a work in Progress after the move? Because I can get chao posts from posting from my Play Station 3 or computer, but I don't gain any if I post from my iPhone.

There are certain forums you won't gain points from if you post in them. Make sure it's not that. If it isn't, then don't post from your iPhone. Simple.

I Don't think it's the topics but my iPhone. I don't really care about chao points though, I was simply informing Mods of the problem. Plus, I was curious as to why this didn't work. :wink:
EDIT: I just gained a chao point. I don't know what happened, but I know that my iPhone did not receive any points in topics in which my PS3 and PC did.

Your browser or device will have no effect on whether or not you get Chao Points.

Rings were an indication of how active you were, since you could only earn one per day. In order to have a high number of rings, you needed to be an active and long-time member.

Your shelf is currently a space on your profile where you can display a limited number of items for other people to see. This may be changed in the future. You can choose to display items on your shelf from your inventory.

So if Chao dice are spam tools and will never be used again, why does it remain on the first post?

Chao Dice was a game in which you could gain (or lose) Chao Points, not a spam tool. You may be confusing Chao Dice with the chatbox's removed /roll command.
