Getting Active in Our Community
The idea of using Mint instead of Coins is an alternative way of stating online virtual coins or points. Mint is an industrial facility that manufactures coins to be used as currency. The production cost is weighed when minting coins.
Minimal Balance is Required
It is required that all registered members must have a balance over zero to maintain their membership in the community. When a user’s balance is low they will be notified to be active in the community raise the mint value.
Members with a negative balance will be given until the end of the month to revive their currency balance. After the last day of the month, the system will terminate any and all negative stale inactive accounts.
Users must have at least four minted activities per month. Inactive accounts lose mints at the end of the month for low activity in the community.
You can view your Mint balance by viewing your profile.
How to Earn Mints
There are a lot of different ways users can earn mint to keep their balance healthy. The best way to earn mints is to create discussion and reply to topics created by others.
Mints can also be used by updating your profile avatar, background image, and information.
Each month we will put together activities users can earn extra mints and badges for their participation. Badges are displayed under the user’s profile account “My Awards & Badges”.
Watch videos in the Help Desk and Chaos Guide 101.
Spending Your Mints
Some monthly and seasonal challenges may cost mint value to participate. These events often include free gift cards and give-away prizes.
You can also spend your Mints in our Chaos Shoppe. The shoppe only accepts Mints and registered users. We do not currently accept cash. Users can purchase Chaos swag items and sig tags.
Mints and Ranks
While earning Mints will increase your rank your status will not decrease if you spend your virtual coins. Ranks are accumulative regardless of how many Mints you lose or spend. This is good to know.
Mints can be Transferred
If for some reason a friend needs more Mint to buy something at the store or has a negative balance, users can transfer their own Mints to another user. View your profile to transfer Mints to a friend.
