Possible Features

 Hi,
Is it possible for members to give points to other members.
And is it also possible for members to have there own little point storeOne that can sell videos, downloads, links, and/or pictures. If it is, how?
Thanks

I'm not entirely sure what 'gift-points' are, but I know it is possible to give those out. As for the actual points, I'm not sure if you can give others points; I'll leave that to Chris.

  1. Goto yourdomain.com/site/index.php?page=points
  2. Type in the username of which you're giving points to
  3. Scroll down to the area that says "Gift point transactions" and specify however many 'gift-points' you're willing to give.

As a member of staff, you can charge this user an arbitrary number of points. You can also refund points by charging them a negative number.

Staff-to-member transactions can be done by scrolling down to the "Charge member" area.

I hope this helped a bit. :)

I know about that, but I want to know if non-staff members can give points to other non-staff members. But thanks anyway.  ;)
And if they can have their own store.
(And I'm still the same guy who made this topic. I'm at school.)

Unless I am wrong I think non-staff can give points to non-staff.

I run http://otakuplayground.com and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for otakuplayground.com I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.

It's as Joe mentioned. Just make sure that:
  1. Points are enabled in the configuration.
  2. The 'Use points' specific permission is enabled for all the usergroups (under the 'Points' section of the specific permissions).

And is it also possible for members to have there own little point store―One that can sell videos, downloads, links, and/or pictures. If it is, how?
Thanks

Members may add downloads and charge points to anyone who downloads them. Videos and pictures could also be added as downloads. Each member profile view screen includes a link to search for that member's content.

As for selling links – well it seems un-internet to do that – but I suppose members could say "Send me some points, and I'll send a personal topic your way that includes the link".
You could include a custom profile field that provides members a space to advertise this kind of thing.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
