    So I've been on CF for about a year now and was just wondering what these credits represent? How are they accumulated and what are they used for?


    And how similar are they to these kinds of credits...

    Galactic Credit Standard - Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki
    The Galactic Credit Standard, simply called credit, colloquially referred to as Republic Dactaries, and later known as the Imperial Credit, was the main currency in use in the galaxy since the time of the Galactic Republic.
    The galactic credit standard was established on Sojourn. From its inception, the credit was backed by the immense wealth of the planet Muunilinst and the InterGalactic Banking Clan (IGBC). During the Clone Wars, the IGBC backed the currencies of both sides, as it would do again decades later for the New Republic and Imperial Remnant.

    Maybe Chris is announcing that credits can be used to purchase things. Like special smiles, avatars, or titles. That would be cool.

    They are used to purchase things in the CF store, they are to be used as a coupon. If you have enough credits you can get anything for free.

    The credits are just like points in Whose line is it Anyways. They don't matter except for bragging purposes.

    Are credits the same as Rep?

    No, because rep is awesome and credits are just cheap showiness.

    I have no bias in my answer. Just ask me.

    Is rep actually reflected on the site? Is that what the green boxes mean?

    You can thank the Thunder for laying an egg against the Heat. Went basically all in on them.

    yeah. Most of us are maxed out in the boxes. Then it just accumulates mysteriously as points that we almost never see.

    The green boxes are not a very effective way to represent Reputation points. It is not intuitive. There is no indication of what they are if you click on them and you only get a generic statement if you scroll over them. And they never seem to change. Actual rep values, perhaps even with negative rep, would be nice.

    rep beyond repute is the highest statement you can get but some of the posters can give so much rep that they can really increase most of the way.

    Also you can look at the posters with the most rep: http://www.cyclonefanatic.com/forum/members/list/?order=DESC&sort=reputation&pp=25

    Note to self, if I'm making the same bet in Cybookie as CycloneErik, I'm doing it wrong.
