12:00 AM - Wednesday the 1st of April, 2015 - by dark52
From today we here at darkSpyro are introducing a totally new way for you to help the website and in doing so bring to life many of your oft-requested features. The smilie dS Coin is our brand new currency that you can use to gain access to all of the newly developed features and extra customisations of your experience here on smilie

Obviously we can't expect you to jump on board without trying a few things out first so we have given each and every one of you a starting balance of a whopping smilie1,000, enough to make hundreds of posts! You'll be able to put it towards many different things like posts, topics, titles, avatars, skins, usernames, signatures, your own personal board, and much much more!

Our prices start at just $5 for smilie500 and get more competitive the more you spend at once. Those of you who are unable to or can't afford to actually buy any smilie dS Coin you'll be excited to hear that we also offer a smilie Gem conversion service where you can transform your hard earned Gems into the brand new currency with great ease. It may take a while to build up enough smilie to turn into enough smilie to purchase the more expensive items but it will be well worth the wait when you finally get there.

Lastly, since this is just the beginning the prices are still in flux as we figure things out, while we're doing that you have our guarantee that if a price in smilie ds Coin goes down within 30 days of purchase we will refund you the smilie dS Coin difference. And, of course, if a price goes up there will be no extra charge.

2 coins for a post? Honestly if this forum is going to take like money to work,might as well put in the registration link, 'You will be prompted to pay in order to post if you sign up. Learn more here(linking the DS coin forum)
And if the name change was like 10 or 15 bucks maybe i'd buy it but I'd rather get Omega Squad teemo and Forecaster janna for 30 rather than a name change.

Honestly, this depresses me because it's really just the most popular rejected suggestions from Site Help & Suggestions being waved in front of our faces. I'd totally take advantage of the username change, y'know.

This is either April fools, or a semi-bad idea. No offence, but the whole "Pay to Post" doesn't sit right with me... The site was doing rather well without it, and apparently everyone wants a name change. The younger users may not have the availability to post as often as everyone else, and I myself have other things to spend or save my money for. I think the extra features is nice, but the porting is going a little far for my opinion.

All I have to say on people leaving the first 2 hours of the change. If there's a site that's always going for april fools every year it's DS as minor as the jokes go,even if it's early-ish(I mean in some parts of the world it already is).

Apologies everyone, the payment system appears to be suffering from a few teething problems due to being inundated with requests, hopefully it should be back up and operational within a few hours once things have calmed down a bit. Thank you for your patience. smilie

Problems with the vertical view are slightly hampering the title change product, that will be sorted out as soon as possible. Rest assured that the majority of other users can see your title as it is intended.

Ranks remain intact when you convert smilie into smilie.

If you purchase the $100 package the exchange rate of a smilie is halved, meaning a Username Change will essentially only cost you $15.

Liquidate your smilie for extra smilie if you are not comfortable with spending real money.

I to will go on the record of not liking this at all. Also...having to pay to post now is not good...the other things that you can buy with the coins are good(kinda cool)....but having to pay to respond to what someone said to you...or answer a question possed to you...And you say...Dark...that you can turn your Gems via the conversion service to get more Coins....but it taks a buttt load to do that.
Well, it looks like once my 1000 coins are gone im done....i can't aford to buy to just post.

With the 1000 gold plus the 50 you can convert from gems,you probably can make enough posts until April 2nd. (hint hint nudge nudge)

I think that this bloke's got the right idea! Custom titles all around!

Also, I dig your title, HIR. I love me a good rave, and I consider myself a lunatic, as well. Emphasis on the 'Luna', of course.

Also, nowhere does it say leaving guestbook comments costs coins! All of my pointless outrage!

Bye smilie
the smilie ruined everything...



Are you seriously leaving just because of the smilie? It's a joke, and I dare say it was a little cruel with the money rules, but really, leaving? Anyway I can't force you to stay, so goodbye.

I remember the exact same thing happening in the closing down of the site joke. Luckly it was only one user, but still, this is what April Fools is about.

It's sad saying goodbye to such great users. But they made themselves go insane over a tiny joke. You'll probably be back in no time, or maybe you're doing an April Fools joke? Because it's pretty unbelievable that people would have such a bad reaction, on a one day April Fools joke.
