Ok, I told everyone there would be an announcement today. This is it. I'm sure you've noticed many of the new features recently installed. Here's the scoop. Bolt Cash: This is the new currency to on the forum. It's just pretend money, but you can use it in several ways. You can buy objects from the IShop to go on your profile. You can place wagers in "vBookie Central". This is also the currency you'll need to adopt-a-bolt this season. You earn additional Bolt Cash by posting. How much you earn per post is dependent on several factors and will change from post to post. Post padding is worth very little, quality posts are worth much more. IShop: This is the shop where you can buy stuff. You can buy logos, helmets, and other items. Up to six of the items will appear in the post header section when you post. This will also be where you will adopt-a-bolt for the 2007 season. vBookie: vBookie is a system which will allow you to wagers with your Bolt Cash. Several bets have been set up in the vBookie Central section. Giving or Donating: You may give or donate your Bolt Cash to another person. You can also give or donate the items you have purchased in the IShop. adopt-a-bolt 2007: Starting at 5pm pdt today there will be players available in the IShop in the adopt-a-bolt category. Players will be released a few each day, so you'll have to keep checking back to find the player you want. Players will be in the 600 to 6000 Bolt Cash range. To get a premier player, you will most likely need to have additional Bolt Cash. You can do this by having someone give you more Bolt Cash, winning wagers in vBookie Central, & we will have occasional contests for Bolt Cash. I hope you enjoy these new features and good luck to everyone in getting the player they want.
