CREDIT SYSTEM v3.0 ONLINE

Dear Members,

 

Thank you for supporting Xisto for all these years and as promised, I am proud to announce the launch of Credit System v3.0. Credit System 3.0 offers complete accounting of user posts which also counts features like views, popularity and reputation to help better distribution of cents.

 

Unlike Credits, which used to represent 1 day of hosting, we now have a new point system called "cent". And yes, each cent represents 1 American "cent". The goal is to make good posts and gather 100 cents. Every time you cross 100, your cents will be converted to US Dollar and deposited into Xisto - Support.com Billing/Shopping area.

 

Ooooo... so where is this Billing/Shopping area?

https://support.xisto.com/ - This is our official Billing & Support area where we have been servicing Xisto - Web Hosting and Xisto clients. From today, even Xisto members are included ;)

 

So where is my $?

To claim your earnings, simply register above with the same EMAIL which you are maintaining in our records at Xisto.com. suppose, at Xisto, your email address is ABC@ABC.COM, then the email used to register at Xisto - Support.com should also be ABC@ABC.COM. Once linked, an account cannot unlink unless you want to freeze the forum account.

 

Your account will get linked automatically within 4-5 hours. Login to your account and you should be able to see "Account Credit Balance: $X.xx". Your member information beside your post will carry myCENT field where you can check your CENT earning value. Once you earn more than 100 cents, it will be deposited automatically into Xisto - Support.com Billing area.

If you want to change your e-mail address at forums, before sign-ing up at Xisto - Support, please follow this link.

Credit System v3 General Information Regarding Multiple Accounts, Xisto and Xisto forums FAQ

 

Q1 I have Xisto and Xisto forum accounts. How does myCENT work and can I transfer from one to another to pool my credits?

A1 If you use the SAME email address for both forums, Billing and Support will automatically merge your credit balance. There's no need for worry.

 

Q2 What about the policy of not having multiple hosting accounts?

A2 The current Credit System allows multiple hosting account IF you can keep up the credits. Since the credit balance is centralized by your email, multiple forum accounts posting with the same email will earn all credits to one Billing account. But our forum is set so that you cannot use an email address more than once. You can have one account in Xisto and another one in Xisto.

 

More FAQ to come...


Vyoma

Congrats on the new system!One question though - was I supposed to get some myCent into my account? Long back (quite long) - I was a member here and I had availed the free hosting. After some time, I shifted to paid hosting at Xisto - Web Hosting.com.So, was curious if it were a glitch in the system.


BuffaloHelp

Credit System v3.0 launched on October 18th, 2008 for Xisto and October 21th for Xisto. Any prior earnings and credits are not part of the new credit system.


pyost

How does the system decide how much myCENTS does a user get once he registers with the billing area? I am asking because my credits have been waaay below zero after I cancelled my hosting (due to an error during the cancellation), and yet I gained a certain sum on my account.


khalilov

Iam kinda confused

Account StatisticsNumber of Products/Services: 0 (0)
Number of Domains: 0 (0)
Number of Support Tickets: 0
Number of Referred Signups: 0
Account Credit Balance: $2.00
Due Invoices Balance: $0.00

Where did the 2 $ come from O.o, is it a bonus for signing up or so?
Also what does mycents stand for, mine is 40. something
Another question, a .com domain costs 9.99$ for a whole year, iam already at 2$. How much credits will it cost me to reach the required payment, also do i have to verify a bank acount or credit card to be able to use the $? cuz i don't have neither.
Finally, can someone who is NOT REGISTERED neither at asta host or at Xisto - Web Hosting purchase me $ their without registering? might be a substitute for money services (paypal....) for my website since all money i will make will go to improving my website not personal profit, for now atleast.

*applauds* One fairly critical point I'd like to raise? Any chance of sending out an email to people who have an account here about this new system? I only became aware of it because I happened to notice the threads in the latest activity section. Perhaps a PM to all members or something?Anyway, aside from that I'm still a smidgen confused about how it's going to work. The new credit system (3.0) is going to replace our current one? If so, will/do we have to do anything to keep our current sites (namely those already done) hosted? Is this in addition to the hosting system offered by Xisto? Basically, if I keep posting here will I keep my hosting, even if I don't sign up for anything at the Xisto billing page?Just a few things I'd like clarified, as I'm a little low of hosting credits at the moment so would quite like to know what the future of my hosting plan is. ;)More importantly, I suppose: I take it that our initial myEarnings are from our post history?

- The 2USD came from your previous post history.
- myCENT is a sweet name for real CENT in USD. Instead of Credits, now you earn directly real cents.. i.e. myCENTs.
- You do not need any credit card or bank account.
- After you collect 100 myCENTs, it automatically gets converted to 1 USD.

- Yes, Mails will be sent and I want another confirmation if you did not receive any mail yet.
- Say, you have $10 in your account. You may buy a logic plan at Xisto - Support.com/billing for say $2.5 a month. Then, you are all set for 4 months as your balance will be used for keeping your hosting up.
- It is recommended that you sign-up for Logic-Plan package at Xisto - Support.com/billing

Running With Scissors1405241561

Wow, Good job guys! It looks awesome and like it took a lot of hard work. I'm still kind of confussed though, do we still just post as we normally would and are websites are hosted? Do I have to do anything other than sign up on that site OpaQue said to sign up on?


BuffaloHelp

do we still just post as we normally would and are websites are hosted?

Yes, that's correct. Instead of earning hosting credits as you contribute to our forum you will earn myCENT. For every 100 myCENT you earn it will deposit $1 to your Account Credit Balance. Although you physically did not transfer or deposit a real money, you can use Account Credit Balance to purchase anything Billing and Support offers. And Xisto - Web Hosting will honor your Account Credits as though it's a real cash.

Do I have to do anything other than sign up on that site OpaQue said to sign up on?

We are still ironing out the process. But for now there's a talk of just registering every member to Billing system. OpaQue may automatically set the invoice for your current hosting and send you a reminder to pay for next 1 year hosting price, or monthly installment. But whatever the case may be, we're still working on the plan so we'll let you know.

Unmetered Packages for Peace Lovers :-)

Space : Unlimited
BW : Unlimited
Features : Unlimited.

Subject to only *one* Condition: Don't Abuse your Powers!

Can someone please tell me how much this costs and how much BW usage is considered as abusing my power

BuffaloHelp

Yes. Logic Plan offers even further customization of your hosting account. You need more bandwidth than SQL? Do you need more Space than Add-on? etc.

BTW whats TB?

TB stands for Terabyte. 1000 Gigabyte equals 1 Terabyte.

Can someone please tell me how much this costs and how much BW usage is considered as abusing my power

Logic Plan starts at mere $0.99 per month. And you customize your needs by adding on additional features found during the check out process. The more you post, the more you earn myCENT that will deposit more Account Credit Balance you will have.

Credit System v3.0 launched on October 18th, 2008 for Xisto and October 21th for Xisto. Any prior earnings and credits are not part of the new credit system.

So what happens to the old credits, and are they still used till people sign up on this new page?

khalilov

K, i know i've asked alot about this so plz be patient:PBut when all members get an acount their and the service is fully started, what will happen to credits here? will the credits be removed and completely replaced by $. Also what about the options like transfer credits and credit bank....


darasen

Just wanted to congratulate the team on this change. I think it looks great thus far. I do have a couple small questions. When setting up the logic plan I see that it asking for a domain. Will there be a problem if I enter my current Domain here? (ciab.astahost.com) Being a sub-domain it does not have the "www" prefix. Thus, to set up the logic plan there does not seem to be an option to continue with the Xisto sub-domain that I currently use. I am fairly certqin I am missing something or perhaps the control is missing something. I am also assuming that the system is aware of me as I have registered and show a positive balance. The other question: Does posting at Xisto (where I do not currently have a hosting account) earn myCents to the same Xisto billing account? Thanks for your time.


skedad

So I am wondering even before I check into signing up and trying things out... I already am having problems trying to keep up with my credits at the moment... And I just don't think I would be able to get up to 100 right now... Is that how it starts?? Maybe that is not how it starts, but I noticed that once it hits 100 it converts to another from of dollar.So if you sign up does it already convert your credits you have to myCents? Do you need so many credits to begin signing up!? I am trying to keep my credits from 10 to 20 to stay afloat... It is just hard to find the time and when I do I feel I am cramming for credits....I would like to participate, maybe I just need more information, or I just need to follow this thread a little more.Not to make it sound like rant, but it does sound quite interesting... It is like even more reward for keeping up on forums and even converting and keeping credits that may be damaged by bad posting. I hope to find out more and if it works out, I will be trying it out for myself!- skedad -


iGuest

Darasen, the following information comes from a Posting Opaque made in the Xisto Staff Forum:

Procedure to Order a Sub-Domain===========================

Suppose, you want to register, myfirstwebsite.trap17.com

1. Select "I will update my nameservers on an existing domain Or I will register a new domain." at Step 1.
2. You will see two fields to enter your MAIN DOMAIN NAME and EXTENSION
3. Your main domain name should be : "myfirstwebsite" (without quotes)
4. Your Extension should be : "Xisto.com" (without quotes)

I presume that the Xisto could be switched for Xisto.

galexcd

So regarding the myCent, and using it with both Xisto and Xisto and a computerhost account (trifecta) xd.gif

So like I already posted on Xisto, I've got my Xisto and Xisto - Web Hosting account working flawlessly together, but after getting that to work I remembered about my Xisto account that I occasionally visit, and I thought I'd might as well sync it up with my other two accounts as well... Well I changed my Xisto email to match my Xisto and my Xisto - Web Hosting but nothing seems to happen. Do I have to wait for the next myCent update in 4 or 5 hours for my myCent to appear under my name or do I need to do something else?


iGuest

galexcd,

see this posting by Opaque re: email changes


TavoxPeru

Yeah, excellent news, and only to say that i just follow the instructions given and complete the registration process. Also, i did not have to wait 4-5 hours to get activated by the system, i just check my registered email account and i receive a minutes ago an email from the Credit System confirming that my Xisto - Support account was credited.Thanks again and best regards,
