I've got a few items to talk about so I'll be doing it in sections over the next few days to give me a chance to finish work off, give you a chance to digest the info and give everyone a chance to ask questions and feel their way around.

First up the VIP Lounge.

From now on, the main forum will be Cardiff City news and chat, general football related topics, photo contests and feature threads such as Old Cardiff photos, New Cardiff photos, Great Pics of Wales, Sporting Goofs and Gaffes, Funny Pic thread etc and stuff that will be less intimidating for visitors and new members to get their head around.

The main forum can be quite cliquey with a load of in-jokes and stuff and often times the football content is too quickly pushed down the board so we're going to start using the VIP Lounge in the way it was intended, to be where the "real deal" posters hang out, and the main forum will be the professional front, the VIP Lounge will be the rowdy bar in the back.

Mods will begin moving off-topic content over to the VIP Lounge from today.

All forum games will remain free to play for everyone, VIP or not.

However, the Champion of Champions prize money will only be available to members who started the season as VIP members and remained VIP throughout.

The forum games are:

PICKEM - Pick the outcome of every game in a given week for an entire season
GTA - Guess The Attendance of Cardiff City games (will be back when fans allowed back in stadiums)
GTA Random - Guess The Attendance of a game chosen by the GamesMaster (when fans allowed back)
FOURCAST - Predict the amount of Goals, Pens, Corners and Red/Yellow Cards in a single Championship week
GOALTIME - Predict the time of the first goal scored in a Cardiff City game
LAST MAN STANDING - Each week pick a Championship team you think will win their fixture. Lose or Draw and you lose one of your 3 lives.
SPORTSBOOK - The versatile wagering system for the forum that runs on Credits

Credits will be awarded to the weekly winners of each of these games. Amounts TBA

Once again a huge thanks to Forum Sponsor @Delboyo who once again has thrown £100 into the prize pot for anyone that can get 12 out of 12 picks in any given week in PICKEM

Also @TDA is currently on the lookout for sponsors to contribute to a big prize fund for the winner of Champion of Champions at the end of the season, and once again @Delboyo was the first to offer up a FURTHER £100 for the pot.

An outstanding contribution I'm sure you'll all agree. :aya::thumbup::beer:

As you may have already noticed, the forum Credit system is up and running now. You can see how many Credits you have at any time by clicking the basket icon on the top navigation bar.

We are all earning 1 Credit for each post we make on the forum and 2 Credits for each thread we create. Mods will be keeping an eye on anyone trying to game the system with unnecessarily excessive posting.

SportsBook, our gambling system also uses Credits and we have put the very first bet on the forum today if anyone wants to place a test wager:

I will be on the lookout for one of two people to have "BOOKIE" status on here, you'll be responsible for creating bets with real-life odds (it's actually quite easy to set up a bet on an event) but you will also be moderating 'Member Bets' where members of the forum can come up with bets on the fly on pretty much any topic that can be bet on.

We have a Bank system in which you can choose to place your Credits. This means your Credits can't be stolen by another member (more on that in a moment) and you will also gain 5% interest daily.

You can attempt to steal other forum members unbanked Credits. You have a 5% chance of successfully stealing from another member and if you are successful you will receive 5% of that members Credits.

If you are unsuccessful you will lose 10% of your own Credits as a penalty.

You must have a minimum of 500 Credits in your WALLET (i.e., not in the bank) in order to attempt stealing.

@Colonel Cardiffi is there a way you can seperate the stickies off the main forum like we used to do before?

When you upgrade I will PM you a Credit voucher code for you to redeem.

I noticed a couple of guys have already found the upgrade page in the last couple of days, you are owed a voucher so give me a shout.

If you still have some subscription left from the old forum you should still have access to the VIP Lounge, just wait until that subscription is about to run out and then resubscribe if you want to https://cardiffcityforum.com/account/upgrades
