    It's now time to add the latest feature to Nintendo Realm, the NR Store and coins system! With NR Coins, you can earn enough coins to buy new items or changes in the NR Store.

    You can buy gifts that you can send to your friends or keep for your collection, most gifts will be between 5.00 and 35.00 NR Coins. All gifts are gaming related, from all the major gaming brands of Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft. There are lots of gifts to choose them, and more will be added in time. To buy an item, go to the Shop section and browse the various gifts, then click the "Buy" button for the item you'd to buy that you have enough NR Coins for. You can view your inventory of items on your profile pages or in the Shop section.

    You can also change your username with NR Coins if you'd like, and you can change it as many times as you like as long as you have enough coins. All name changes are recorded on the Statistics page, so you won't get confused if someone changes their name and you don't know who they are.

    So how do you earn these coins? Very simple, you can earn NR Coins by simply posting in the forums, starting new threads, voting in polls, and generally just staying active. Each post earns you more coins, but some forums, like the Introduction, Random Chitter Chatter, and Graphical Center forums will not earn you coins. This is how much you will earn with your activity:

    Coins Per Post 1.00
    Coins Per Thread 2.00
    Coins Per Poll Vote 0.50​

    You can also see this on the front page of the store.

    In addition to the gifts and other items, there will be occasional giveaways of NR Coins, or special monthly bonuses where you can earn more coins for posting in the forums. I have several other uses and surprises for this feature, so stay tuned for the latest updates. :nod:

    All current members start with 50 NR Coins, enjoy!

    An even better upgrade to the site man. (Y)
    This will surely boost more forum activity, more posts for more coins.
    Good one dudes.

    It's not the same thing, you need NR Coins to buy items, features, etc, which you can earn by posting in the forums. It's more like a points system, which you earn by being active on the forums.

    PLUS its a sure-fire way to increase site activity in terms of Active Threads and Posting--AND it'll possibly help bring NEW members here

    You should already be able to send gifts, when viewing your items you should have the option to send them as gifts.

    Nice, though I don't think you should be able to earn credit just by clicking a poll. It's too simple and it might lead to people making useless polls or clicking on them without actually caring about the topic just to earn coins regards on how small you make that reward type.

    Other than that I like this feature. Other forums I used to go to had a feature similar to this but it never worked out too well.

    Oh another thing that came to mind is maybe you could give credit based on donation as well. It'll encourage people to donate to the site.

    If you ever need more items I probably could make a couple. I remember making them for NW in the past and it wasn't very hard. I just have to find the time for it...
