    Default How To Earn Gamers Forum Points (GFP)? Read and Learn

    The Gamers Forum Points (GFP) earnings are back and it is perfect, for now at least. But there are some changes on how you earn points, how much you can earn, and what you can use these points for. So to learn more about this just keep reading this thread and it will explain all you need to know.

    What is GFP?

    If you are new to this forum you will probably have this question, my answer to you is, it is just the name of the points you can earn by participating in our forum. GFP Stands for Gamers Forum Points. There is more than one way of participating so keep reading.


    How Do I Earn GFP?

    Simple. Post a lot. There are different amount of GFP you get for making certain types of posts and doing certain activities. Below is a list of what you can earn according to your actions. Some actions include creating a post, thread, voting in polls, giving rep, receiving rep, etc.. Read below for more.

    Actions required to attain GFP:

    Create a New Thread: 3 GFP
    Create a New Post: 1 GFP

    These above are the obvious ones. But now for some of your actions:

    Get a referral to sign up and make 10 posts: 100 GFP

    Reputation Granting Credit: 0.10 GFP - this is when you click the silver balance beam and give I Agree or Positive Reputation. You will earn 0.1 GFP Just for doing that.

    Positive Reputation Credit: 1 GFP - this is when you are the one receiving Positive Reputation, for each positive you get, you will get 1 GFP. How easy is that?

    Negative Reputation Credit: -1 GFP - this is when someone else gives bad reputation because of something bad you did. You will lose 1 GFP for this.

    Creat Poll Credit: 3 GFP - if you are to create a new Poll, you can get a total of an extra 3 GFP. This can help you a lot.

    Vote Poll Credit: 0.50 GFP - If you aren't the one to create that poll, its ok, you can still get points by Voting in that poll. You will get half a GFP but later on, this can add up.

    Rate Thread Credit: 0.10 GFP - When you go and rate a thread, you will get 0.10 GFP. Rating threads are easy. On the first post of the thread, on the top bar you will see a drop down button that says Rate Thread. You can select the number of stars. To avoid spam we will keep track of who rates what thread. So only give a rating to those threads that help you a lot or has a lot of valuable information.

    What Can I Do With the GFP That I Earn?

    You can enter contests and use them to receive the prizes. For example we are running a steam games contest where you can use the points to get free games on Steam. Two of our members have already claimed their prizes, will you be next? Also, there will be more point related prizes to be set up here. A shop should come as soon as it is developed to fit with this forum. I am also trying to integrate it into the arcade. Where you will have to use a certain amount of your GFP to play some games. And in turn, maybe hit a jackpot if you reached a certain goal, you get a lot of GFP in return. These are all being planned out as we speak.

    Some ideas have been given and for 100 GFP for now - you can request your own UserGroup to manage. As long as it is approproriate for all ages and no illegal content. You will get full access to that usergroup and you decide who gets to join and who doesn't. This is also in production but for now, if you want to do this, set up a request in the Questions and Suggestions board in this forum.

    Another thing you can request is custom User Title. Example: Mine says The Ultimate Gaming Machine. You can get yours to say anything you want for 100 GFP. Again Make a thread in the Questions & Suggestions board and request for it.

    Can I Give Some of my GFP to my Friend? And How Can I do this?

    Yes of course. We call this feature the Donation feature. So you want to know how to give points and it is very easy. First you can find a post made by your friend and click the link that says GFP under the person's reputation points. You will be taken to your usercp where at the bottom you will be able to give the points to that person. Another thing you can do is go to your UserCp and on the left panel, click Manage GFP on and then at the bottom you can manually enter the username of your friend, a little comment, and amount of GFP. Please note the Fee. If you donate, you will have to pay 1.9% of that GFP to tax. It is just a fun feature and can be used to keep control of point distribution.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is just a Basic FAQ about the point earning System. This will be changed as time goes by, there will be additions as well as removals of some of these features and point earning limits. So keep in touch with this thread and keep up with the updates.

    For those that want their points back from the old SMF board. DO NOT PM ME. I will slowly do that this week. Also with the Raffle Winners, you will get your GFP this week as well.

    If you do not understand anything, have any questions, suggestions, or comments, please let us know, we'll do our best to assist you.

    Thank you very much! Enjoy our forum. +rep me if you found this useful and earn some GFP in the meantime.

    Activity Credit (Meaning you post once a day): 10 GFP every 24 hrs If you have posted in that time period.
    Has something happened regarding this? Because I referred Gleno and people can see he posts a lot and I haven't gotten the 10 GFP.

    And I noticed that I referred the new user "Hockeyfan" and he has 8 posts and no GFP there either.

    Just wondering if anything has changed.
    PM me if you have any problems. Just don't annoy me out of my wits.

    yeah you need 10 posts, not 5 anymore, i just forgot to update it - that was posted nearly a year ago and a lot has changed - you need 10 posts for a lot of things, it's kind of the magic number for the forum - 10 posts for arcade, casino, post links, post images, etc...

    and glen signed up months ago and you should have brought something up about that because you may not have noticed because it doesn't give you a pm when the system has paid you because it works like a cron job script that runs once every 24-72 hours

    GF Eric made around a 1000 gfp from referrals himself and he confirmed for me that he got paid for his referrals before you even joined up - i believe you were one of his referrals too

    so this msg is for everyone else: if you referred someone and the person has made 10 posts and you haven't gotten paid for your referral within 7 days of making the 10 posts, contact me. I can't get records if it is 10 months late.

    edit: and also activity credits no longer exists because it is buggy and it removes 15 gfp for everyday you are inactive.

    I know i was getting them at first, but it has been a while since I've gotten some, I just wanted to check to see if it had been removed or something.

    the referral credits are still here and i only see two referrals from you and there is a high chance you got the gfp for glen but definitely not for hockeyfan yet
