CREDIT SYSTEM v3.0 myCENTS ONLINE

Dear Members,

Thank you for supporting Xisto and its free web hosting services for all these years and as promised, I am proud to announce the launch of Credit System v3.0. Credit System 3.0 offers complete accounting of user posts which also counts features like views, popularity and reputation to help better distribution of cents. For More information on getting a Free Website using myCENTS - follow this link.

Unlike Credits, which used to represent 1 day of hosting, we now have a new point system called myCent. And yes, each mycent represents 1 American cent. The goal is to make good posts and gather 100 cents. Every time you cross 100, your mycents will be converted to US Dollar and deposited into XistoSupport.com Billing/Shopping area.

Ooooo... so where is this Billing/Shopping area?

http://www.xistosupport.com/billing/ - This is our official Billing & Support area where we have been servicing ComputingHost and Xisto clients. From today, even Trap17 and Astahost members are included Posted Image


So where is my $?


To claim your earnings, simply register above with the same EMAIL which you are maintaining in our records at KnowledgeSutra.com. suppose, at KnowledgeSutra, your email address is ABC@ABC.COM, then the email used to register at XistoSupport.com should also be ABC@ABC.COM. Once linked, an account cannot unlink unless you want to freeze the forum account.

Similarly, you can maintain an account at KnowledgeSutra, Astahost and XistoSupport with the same e-mail and earn credits accordingly.

Your account will get linked automatically within 4-5 hours. Login to your account and you should be able to see Account Credit Balance: $X.xx. Your member information beside your post will carry myCENT field where you can check your CENT earning value. Once you earn more than 100 cents, it will be deposited automatically into XistoSupport.com Billing area.

Sounds like you've added some really great feature to have. I just got the email today saying that my new account is up and running... so I wanted to come here and check it out. I'll have to spend more time later figuring it all out though, because I'm about to leave for the weekend in just a little while. But before I do, I just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to always make this place better! That's why I love being here so much :) Great service that gets better and better! You rock :P

Yes you have to register in order to use the myCENT in order to purchase computinghost packages from your posts in trap17. So if you want to have your own reseller account or the uber VPS package then posting quality is a most in order to maximize your earnings. Also for those who have already registered you iwll notice an affiliation link and so if you get friends or family who are looking for some paid hosting give them your affiliation link and when they go purchase one of the many packages on computing host you will earn a nice little profit for your credit account.

Of course still need some clarification that and as usual no posting your affiliation link in trap17 :) as it kind of defeats the purpose of spreading computinghost services.

It sounds ok and nice, but from this first post I didn't understand a lot about how the system will work.
I think you should do a full document explaining how the credits will be converted, how will we get those credits (how much the views, popularity, etc count to them) and if and how the two systems (Credit System 2.0 and 3.0) will work in paralel for the starting phase.

I have specifically some questions:
1. If 1 credit will be converted to 1 cent, it means that we still lose 1 cent per day? (And in other words, that my posting for 3 months values 1 lousy US Dollar?)
2. The restriction applying when you accumulate large sums of credits (as that you get less credit per post) will be lifted? Because otherwise it's quite hard to get to 100 credit and so to have domething in your account.
3. This new system is just for people with lots of credits? I usually keep a constant amount of about 10-20 credits, so it doesn't look that this things are directed to someone like me.

Anyway, thanks for the continued interest to make trap17 better, Opaque.

Last added question: Do I have to register now to this new system?

Yeah its a bit confusing as well but I try my best to answer your questions

1. No you will still be earning your hosting credits but you will also be earning cents as well, so you working on earning two different things while only your hosting credits go down while your cents accumalate.

2. I believe the earning rate is quite different for myCENT's then it is for your hosting credits, although quality posting is more important then ever I don't believe the two are tied together. That is a guess though since I don't know what the ratio is at this time but that is the reason to ask questions and those who know it, the admin, will be able to explain everything.

3. No it is for everyone, just like I explain in your first question as you post you will earn cents, so regardless how many hosting credits you have your cents will accumlate over time and will only be deducted if you posts a computinghost plan or top level domain.

your last question yes, if yo uwant to earn myCENTS you need to register through the billing site in order to accumlate money through your posting.

Thanks bittr, I have some similar doubts. You saved me from lot of typing. :)

I have another question.

AstaHost Forums and Trap17 Forums will earn credits individually and deposit the money in your account at XistoSupport.com. So members are free to post anywhere provided the E-mail address is maintained on the registration profile is same


Does this means, if I register an account at AstaHost forums with the same email address I registered here, and started posting at AstaHost forums, the amount will be added to my xistosupport account? Does this means, I can be active at the two forums simultaneously?

Anyway, very interesting additions with the version 3 of credit system. I am very happy.

Thanks for trying to clear up my questions, SM.

As for this part I quoted from your post, I think the credits will disappear totally, and we'll have cents for hosting days too.
At least, this is what I get from Opaque's words: "unlike credits, which used to represent 1 day of hosting"

Unlike Credits, which used to represent 1 day of hosting, we now have a new point system called "cent". And yes, each cent represents 1 American "cent". The goal is to make good posts and gather 100 cents. Every time you cross 100, your cents will be converted to US Dollar and deposited into XistoSupport.com Billing/Shopping area.

Very nice system! I've got it all down now, thanks to Saint, however there does seem to be a minor issue.

More or less when it first started it transferred the initial amount to Xisto's account, but left the CENTS in the forum account as well(Which was almost 600) so it ended up ignoring my later posts last night(It's now zero'd but nothing else got transferred).

Aside from that, all is good and again, you guys are awesome!


Edit : Actually, looking at other accounts as well of people who post here all the time, it seems everyone is stuck at zero...Is this normal?

Been looking the system over for a good 15-30 minutes, looks pretty beast.
One question tho, what the conversion rate from Trap17 day/points to myCENTS?
Maybe someone put it in here but I don't see it. And I'm waiting for my account
to link to figure it out.

Edit: And yes, I win the retardation badge, I missed that explanation of cents by SM xD
