If you have any questions regarding this new way of getting points? Please see This Topic First. How to convert Treasures? Go to Members CP- Credits Transaction (top right hand side next to my zone link) Than you click on credit transaction than you fill in blanks and than click submit(make sure you haven't made any mistake because once you click submit there is no going back. My advice is if it's your first time doing this try a small number first eg 20 Treasures make sure you have minimum of 50 treasure in your total. What is Maximum Number Treasures You Can Convert Into Point? There isn't a maximum number but it depends on amount of treasure points you have on your account. Tip: if you take away 20 from total number of treasure that is maximum you can convert at that time Guide until 30/01/08 due special promotion of 5% tax after 10 %tax 20G = 9 points (Total needed 40G) 40G = 18 points (Total needed 60G) 60G = 27 points (Total needed 80G) 80G = 36 point (Total needed 100G) 120G = 54 points (Total needed 140 G) I think you get the Idea-please if you have any problem please post your problem here and one of Moderators will try help you or if your lucky to have lbjedward on-line explain/sort out it for you like i did

VIP points you use to watch the shows. Forum points are points that you have earned by playing the forum games, making post, ect. Once, you have enough forum points, you can convert them into VIP points to watch your favorite shows. It really is a great idea. I wish I knew how to give you the links to these questions to help you out better.
Author: waterlilybarb    Time: 1-25-2008 21:55     Subject: Just a note:

FYI, I think we gave some of you faulty information. When you convert treasure, ie G, it is converted to forum points, not VIP points. You will still have to go to the Point Conversion Board to convert forum points to VIP points. Sorry for any misunderstanding, and I hope this clears that up. p.s. I big THANK-YOU to our dear Granny Penny for bringing this discrepancy to our attention.

I must be the only one who doesn't know what 'G' stands for, so I'm gonna' ask about it. Please explain- I couldn't find it in the rules/posts I've been reading. (Well, I did say my location is the Twilight Zone- I meant it as a joke, but now I'm sorta wondering... be back in a few- the dang spaceship that just landed in my yard is crushing my flowers- don't know why they didn't just park in the driveway like everyone else...)

OK, cool. I don't want to overanalyze, just need to know the basics. Apparently, from what I've read, the exact meaning of 'G' isn't important- keeping up with them is where I will spend some effort. Thank you again... you sure know the answers to all my questions tonight.

If you have 52G then you can only convert 32 of them. After each conversion there has to be a residual balance of at least 20G

Author: bala    Time: 3-2-2008 02:00     Subject: Reply 42#42 seahawks_magic's post

Fastest way to gain fourm points is do a quizes on game fourm but only my quizes are on free show-rest are vip shows. as when and where they rewarded-that depends on the moderator once you get rewarded there will a pm saying how much you got rewarded than you go point's conversion and convert your points the more quizes you do more points you get As to treasury conversion this is more complicated as you need post a lot at least 40 comments to get 10 points by converting them.

Author: waterlilybarb    Time: 3-3-2008 14:25     Subject: Reply 44#44 megatan's post

The time on goes by how long you are browsing the forum. So if you leave the forum open on your browser and watch a show on VIP it won't change. I'm pretty sure it goes in 10-15 minute increments, so if your reading a page for longer than that it won't increase until you go to the next page. I can't remember exactly, but I know it's something like that. I should write all this stuff down somewhere so I don't forget it, but I think you can get the gist of what I mean.

You must always keep a minimum balance of 20 Treasure therefore as you have a grand total of 55G you are only allowed to convert 35G to points at this time.

What exactly is your trouble? On the VIP site, you may view any of the shows in the green "Free Shows" section as a normal member. To view any of the VIP shows you must have VIP membership. Please see this thread for an explanation on becoming a VIP member. You can also view many shows, though not all, at - our sister site. The quality isn't quite as good, but it has improved greatly recently.

Torres is right. When you convert G into points it's FORUM points, which you have to convert later to VIP points.

you can't trade 20 treasure that minimum limit which can't be converted unless more 20 but balance after has to be 20 which mean if you you have 50 G you can only trade 30 G for points not 50 since 20 in balance minimum..

I am entering the same password into it that I do when I login when I first get on this forum. 2.) It says I have: Credits: 24 Points: 24 Treasure: 43 Question is which ones are the forum points that I can use to watch VIP shows? I know Treasure points need to be converted and then transferred again on Sunday nights to become VIP points, right?

Ok thanks Kate, makes more sense now to me. You have 24 credits which can be converted into VIP points (that allow you to watch VIP shows) here: Points Conversion Board - You'll just have to wait for the new thread to be put up as you just missed the last deadline. You also have 43G. You always have to keep 20G in your Treasure Bank, so to speak, so you convert 23G's which will give you 10 Credits (which are what you convert to VIP points mentioned above) To Convert Treasure (G's) read this thread then read first page of this thread [ Last edited by shinny at 10-1-2008 11:02 ]

Reply 89#89 shinny Thanks for the clarification, I get how to get VIP points now. But I do still have a Treasure points problem. I am doing everyting this site tells me to in order to convert them. I know I can only try to convert 23 out of my 43 points. The issue is it on the page "Credits Transaction" (under Members CP) the first box asks for you to enter your password, which I am doing. Then I fill in the rest of the boxes and press sumbit, and it comes back: "Invalid password, you can not process the transaction, please return."

I was already typing it in correctly. But I tried your advice - changed the password - and still didn't work. Now I'm not a dope with computers, but I can't figure this one out. I am really getting frustrated. I emailed those admin's bala gave me but they didn't respond back. I really think this is a singular glitch on my personal account for some reason. I need some IT person on this website's admin end to take a look at my account or something! I have tried everything and want to get VIP points. Please help, thanks.
