    Negative amount is possible when you download any attachment like a zip file or a pdf. You are still allowed to download attachments, even when your amount is negative.
    The idea behind this is the following:

    When there is no other way to spent some coins for anything except access to the plugin download section their credit balance would just increase infinity and the "game" gets boring.
    So the fastest solution was to say that regular downloads are charged with 10 coins.. to keep the game rolling:)

    I have to think more about virtual things you guys can "purchase". Maybe something like cool looking badges or something like that. If you have any ideas let me know.

    Btw. the price 10 coins for downloading attachment has already mentioned in the first post of this thread. Now its linked within the XS Coin Shop.
    Hope that makes it clear for new user:

    Its a special supporter thing , not possible to buy it with coins so i did not promote it much for the moment.

    Btw. can you guys check if a regular image download or view is charged with coins? That is unintended and will than fixed.

    @Historiker: you're gold supporter. So you won't get charged at all :)
    Except for the gold support of course ;)

    Maybe a 'starter pack' can be introduced, when someone register on forum for the first time, he gets 100 coins or something like that. Just to avoid some amount of 'useful' posts. Of course if it's possible to do with this add-on.

    A new registration gets 10 coins.
    I think a new registration is not worth 10 times more than writing a post. So 10 coins is a nice gift anyway.

    gambling is alway good. you could make a virtual slot machine that pays 2:1. you could also rent the spots for the pictures that go on the slot machine to members that want to so off their simulators. rent it for a week or so .just a thought.

    Hi Guys am I missing something, I have over 250 coins but still am not able to download any plugins.

    Is there a time delay? or do I have to amass 250/week in one week via posts on the site?

    Other downloads seem to be accessible ie they are highlighted orange whereas the plugins are grey and state @plugin not available.

    My bad, do I need to go to the new users first and introduce myself?

    Finally sorted it out. Had to select purchase and was directed to where I could redeem my coins.
