but I was fortunate enough to get a test egg!  ;D

I kinda like the way it looks  :P :-*

that egg would look even more beautiful if you changed your av to the team sky dog    ;D

    I swear I am getting so senile that I actually thought the little egg was a tshirt or jersey hanging on the bike until I thought about it

    Basically you acculate credits for posting. I cant remember how many, but its some.

    then you can go to the shop and spend them on things like a display name change, buying a team, or useless stuff like rocks. The main things of interest are name changes, being able to sticky your own topic or something.

    You can also buy a steal item which enables you to try stealing money from another user. Which is why people sensibly put their money in the bank so it cant be stolen.

    Just a small question concerning this, what does it mean to buy a team? Can no-one else make threads about this team?  :P


    Also is the stealing the reason Byop has such a negative karma :p
    Another fun thing you could consider on adding to it, is that when you receive karma you also receive credits

    No I have negative karma because I've been bad and am not a very friendly/nice person!

    Now you do know that I can never believe that  ;)

    nothing really, you just own that team. you can sell them later i guess, which may be a good investment to get you the money to do things like name changes or whatever i add in the future. Its really about fun, but covering some of the problems we had over repeated name changes

    and yes, thats why byop has neg karma.

    thats an idea.

    a few possibilities for the future.. there may be for instance a limited number t-shirts available in the future for x amount of credits, or little things like badges. I would certainly like to get some VR badges made as token gifts for people for $5,000 or something.

    Its also likely that those that donate towards the running of the site will get credits in return.

    a lot of maths involved though.

    There does not need to be a reason. saw there were teams, saw AG2R and had a sudden desire to buy them. had to put my plans to simultaneously egg the entire forum on hold for now.

    Aye, I realise that. I also realise that they're so sensitive that it's the reason they wear brown shorts.

    Euskaltel Euskadi, also known as the Bleeding carrots, are up for sale at the marketplace. The payment for the team can be made to ram, draft or cash payment only. Cheques cannot be trusted. Additional purchases of the finest rocks will be required to acquire control of the team.

    All to do with forward planning AG, Pais Vasco, Giro, Tour, Vuelta and so on. They're worth the list price in the market place.

    The rocks can be used for cobbles training. If that doesn't work, they could be used for stoning.

    Forward planning O0
    It's only business, ram corp needs assets.
    Pais Vasco, Giro, Tour, Vuelta and all such races. Anyone but the 50 grander would take time to get to that amount. I am willing to bump down the price to a paltry amount after a failure in this race, though I saw Pello Bilbao racing, that's a success surely.

    Dim's money is all genuine. He has no magic buttons. And admin only had loads for testing purposes and has now been adjusted accordingly.

    Admin needs to have money every now and again to buy new items to test they work
