Well ever since the merger with ShakiraMedia there are tons of new members... I've been swamped with PM's asking about so many "parts" of the board i figured id post a topic about it which should hopefully shed some light for our new members.. '

First of all welcome to all new members :cufnc:

If you haven't done so already, please make sure you take the time to Rules

A quick run down with an explanation of some of the features on the board...

ShakiDollars
What are they?
Shaki Dollars is a form of "currency" we have on the board... It's kind of like points that you can get for posting new topics or replying to old topics. For the most part you get $2 Shaki dollars for replying to a topic and $4 for posting a new one (if you go to the Main Page? you can see how much each forum pays out under each forums description)

You can use these dollars to play the Lotto in which you can purchase (either quick pick or pick the numbers yourself) a lotto ticket .
Every 2 days, a drawing is made where 5 numbers between 1-30 are randomly selected, your ticket must contain one or all of the numbers selected in order for you to win the corresponding prize, the main jackpot changes daily but as of this post stands at $100,690 shaki dollars for matching 5 out of 5 (don't think this has ever happened but we have had members match 4 out of 5)

Another way of getting some Shaki Dollars is by taking one of the Quiz's posted in the forum, some are shakira related some are not (just for fun) please keep in mind you do have to pay an entry fee to play each quiz if you do not have enough "Shaki Dollars" there is a "Easy Quiz " you can take that will earn you an easy $100 shaki dollars.
If you do NOT have the available money to play the quiz the QUIZ WILL NOT WORK so please stop asking me why the quiz don't work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We use to have an "arcade" where you could play games with your money but it was taken down because we had hackers hacking into the forum using that portal, maybe in the future it can be added again (keep your fingers crossed)

There is also a Store where you can buy things or sell some of your own from other members.. please keep in mind when posting items for sale in the store YOU MUST PM ME or it will not be approved!!!!!! also.. please buy and sell at your own risk.

The Jail function is a fun way of keeping members on "check" you can use your shaki dollars to purchase "warrants" when against fellow members. If 3 warrants are purchased the member automatically goes to "jail" for a specified amount of time and their posting abilities are removed (please keep in mind the warrants must come from 3 different members)

The Raffle is a fun way of earning some free money, simply purchase one or more raffle tickets (50 max) and get a chance to win anywhere between 1,000 and 2,000 shaki dollars. many members have gotten rich playing the raffle

Other Features

Some of the other features included in this forum include a Friends Feature that is similar to "Myspace" where you can add members as your friends, and leave comments on his or her profile. This feature also gives you access to a Personal Page where you can write and design whatever you wish about yourself to help other members get to know you.

The Member Blogs Section is a user friendly interactive section where members (you guys) can post blogs, journals or just news and information about yourselves, Its a great place to keep an on-line diary or chronicle your daily life. Other members have the ability to read your blog and post comments on your postings.
The Member Map allows you to pinpoint your location as well as view the location of other members from around the world... please make sure you go to the Member Map and post a pin at your exact location (you can change maps by changing the drop down menu and clicking "display map")

We also have a Personal Messagin if you need to contact myself or any other admin or moderator.. for a full list of moderators and admins please Click here


Thanks for taking the time to read this, happy posting :olivia:

The Jail function is a fun way of keeping members on "check" you can use your shaki dollars to purchase "warrants" when against fellow members. If 3 warrants are purchased the member automatically goes to "jail" for a specified amount of time and their posting abilities are removed (please keep in mind the warrants must come from 3 different members)
