Point Exchange

View File

This is currently not totally compatible beyond ip.board 3.4.7. If you upgrade to 3.4.8 it is going to add paragraph html tags to titles, descriptions, etc... On the public end you won't notice it, but they're there. Also, some formatting in this description was ruined by this site's upgrading to 4.x.

This is an addon which allows you to sell points to your members, in exchange for money. It works with basically any point system involving members (so it has to be used with a field in one of the three tables IPS uses for member information). there is also a built in points field, in case you want to simply use the one from this app separately.
You must have Nexus installed for this to work. You can purchase and install this without Nexus, in case, for some reason, you want to install this one first, but this is all done via Nexus. When someone purchases points, it generates an invoice through Nexus and then, when the invoice is paid off, the points are transferred to their account.
There are two ways to purchase points. You can use only one or the other, both, or neither (turn the system off). [*]Custom - In the ACP, you enter how many points are received per dollar spent. A member then simply enters how many points he/she wants, and then the invoice is created for the amount they would cost, based on the rate from the ACP. [*]Package - Create, edit, and delete packages in the ACP. You enter the exact number of points and the exact cost for the package. This way you could give discounts for larger totals being purchased, for example. It, of course, uses the default currency of your Nexus install. Dollars is just the default wording.   Please note that the app does not allow undoing of the transactions, at this time. Someone can cancel an invoice, rather than pay it, but once the invoice is paid, it's final, under the current setup.   This will have many new features, over time. This app has a separate tab. In the future I may integreate it, specifically with Simple Points, where you could do the same functionality within the Simple Points tab. It works with that app, of course, now, but in this separate tab.

I am building a tournament website based on your app. I am to install a point system that will do the following:

1. Points to economize your Tournament App

2. Points purchased via nexus allow members to join tournaments

3. Points earned via tournament commenting/activity can be redeemed to join tournaments

4. Points earning disabled for forum postings

Now i find this app suitable, however, i have a few questions:

1. Will this app cater to above mentioned concerns?

2. What kind of raffle system would i be able to connect it to?

3. Do you intend to continue and support this app?

Well, the way it is now, it wouldn't exactly work that way because for the tournaments app commenting and joining teams is one type of points and then points to join tournaments is a totally separate type, which can only be earned by winning matches and tournaments, basically, OR you can make people give points to join your team, and those points can be used to join tournaments.

This app is all based on individual members, also. I guess you could use it for individual members to buy points and join tournaments that use individuals instead of teams. You'd probably have to have me make something custom. For teams it would have no way to know which team to give the points to, currently, since this is all assumed to be for individual members. And actually now that I think about it, it won't work for individuals, either, if I'm not mistaken, because it uses a different table.

I guess you could do it where individuals buy points with this and then use those to join teams which cost points to join and then it would be converted to the type of points to join tournaments. So there are some ways it could "somewhat work, but otherwise would ened changing.
