Hi everyone,

I have added a funny little feature to this forum.

If you really appreciate what someone has done for you on this forum or in general you can buy him a 'beer'.

What does this mean?

An additional option is added to the users profile to enter their paypal address.
Where the user has entered their paypal address, a 'beer glass' icon appear in the poster information area of users posts.  The alt text when hovering over the icon states 'Buy Me A Beer Through Paypal' [must be logged in to see] and when clicked takes the user to the paypal page.

The standard amount is $5,-

Hope you guys like this little ditty.

I don't know, its a clever and interesting idea.  But think about the younger people (do you think there are any?) that see these forums.  I am sure we have a few ghost readers, I just don't think its the best idea to send the wrong message to some younger people.

I understand what you mean.

I installed it as an option just so we could reward each other. The reward system is called "Buy me a beer". I don't know if I can change it into "Buy me a game" and replace the beer icon with the icon of a cartridge.

I am going to look into it.

I don't mean to hold your original idea back, thinking about it, I don't think many kids come here, and if they do, oh well, its not like they have not seen beer on the internet before.  I am sure its fine. 

I just wonder how many people will actually give others 5 dollars, I imagine Rene will get quite a few "beers" because of how much he helps others. :-P
