Knowledgesutra Mycent Update.

Recommended Posts

As you all noticed, Mycents were recently not being deposited into your accounts. OpaQue was busy updating it and since the MyCent script has to be updated with each IPB update, it really does take time :(A formal apology on behalf of OpaQue about this lag, it really was not expected but with each update comes the nauseating task of checking & rechecking the code to ensure no member is underpaid OR overpaid his due.*** Now, this new update does nothing radical BUT OpaQue has changed the way MyCent is calculated PER post. There isn't really concrete information I can give about the new method of calculation BUT it is a fact that it is more quality oriented thereby making it much more difficult for spammers and illegitimate members to earn.*** Another important update is that if any member has an old post edited by a moderator / admin (Members cannot edit posts older than 15 minutes). That post(s) / Topic(s) WILL BE recalculated as per the new system. So, this is fair warning to all **Edit at your own risk** :lol: .. It won't do cataclysmic damage but chances are, you would get a small deduction since the new system deemed its quality lesser than expected.Of course, this thread is open to all members with any questions they might have about the mycent system. The Mycent script will be run regularly as before :) and members are requested to keep their "MYCENT UPDATE" Emails handy at all time.Those of you who feel that there is something wrong MUST report to Xisto - Support OR in this topic WITH the Mycent earning info (latest email & one before that).

Thanks a lot for the new update, Velma! I got my last email this morning so things are working (at least right now).I am curious as to how often "running regularly" is. In the past, it's been variable over a huge window (sometimes up to a week), so knowing about when they should be updated would help when it comes to reporting bugs and such.

Same here... Thank you very much Velma & OpaQue for all your effort, specially considering it is during the New Year holiday. As always I sure will keep you busy with my questions and feedback. Sorry for that. :)

Yes, thanks for the update. I got one a few days ago, I was starting to wonder about what was going on. But sometimes I get real regular emails notices when I have made enough posts to earn at least $1 and other times I don't, so if I don't get any I usually just ignore it and go on posting. It would be nice if you could share with us some of what is considered to ad to the quality of a post. I think by now you all know I'm not a spammer, so you wouldn't be giving away any secrets, I hardly ever even try to peddle a puppy to someone here! :-) Oddly I haven't even sold a single puppy to anyone here, at least not that I know of. You'd think as common as people in the market for dogs are and the large number of memebers here I could peddle a few!

Sheepdog, the price of shipping might be an issue. :wacko:Especially to Europe and South East Asia.I have not noticed whether the MyCents is functioning better or worse since I don't have Hosting right now. Maybe I should note the numbers in my account and check back later. Good plan. :huh:

Believe me, the only time there are delays are times when OpaQue is fixing it or updating it. Or else, there is no reason why the mycent script should be halted. Remember, the point of the patches / updates is to ensure no one is underpaid for their efforts... Besides you don't have to worry about bugs except for the amount you receive, it helps to keep a track of your mycent info using the emails you get and what your profile shows you.

Bugs are generally caught and fixed by OpaQue BUT to ensure that there is no difference between the results when the script is run during testing & real time, we need the members' confirmation. You might feel the gap because you either post a lot once in a while OR posts are generally 3-4 lines which would mean, it would take longer to reach $1.

:lol: We live and breathe for the questions and feedback Adrian, Fire away all your questions.. I would be extremely happy to answer them ^_^

To tell you the honest to God truth, the only person who can define a quality post is OpaQue and his code... :lol: And I am ready to give $100 mycent to anyone who can coax him into posting the secret on this forum..

You know, after reading about schnauzers through your posts, I have been wanting one for so long... But I already have a petting zoo at home, My mother would probably ship me in a carton to your kennel if I ordered a puppy from you.. You can always open a topic for your website at the website showcase section :) I am sure members would love to read about your job and see any pictures (if any)

the price of shipping might be an issue. :wacko:Especially to Europe and South East Asia..


Oh dear! Yes, shipping would exceed the price of the puppy itself..

nd hope a great year with great mycents

We could all do a mycent dance, could bring showers of mycent on members :lol: But on a serious note, yes, it is great to have the mycent patched and all set..

True enough, so many member here from places far removed from the USA. And the headaches of shipping overseas is really more than I care to bit off anyway, but we do have a lot of folks from the states here. But I probably air ship nearly half of all the pups I sell, it runs $250 to just about anywhere in the USA. Unless you are in Alaska. I almost feel sorry for those folks in Alaska, all that cold weather and everything they need has to be shipped in. Velma, just come on down anytime, you can play with all the pups you want to!
