We reserve the right to remove any message board content without notice for any reason.


Rule 1: Responses to rule violations
Violating these rules will result in warnings, either formal or informal, suspensions, banning, or other sanctions.

Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure
- Make your posts in the appropriate forum.

- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.
- Do not post any private information about other users.
- Do not post in-game information in an attempt to have other players attack your target. Be careful to not cross the line into bullying.

- Do not spam users on the forums or through private messages.
- Do not start a thread without actual purpose.
- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

Rule 8: Respect your account
- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create �sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.
- Never include your e-mail address or any other personal information in posts.

Rule 9: Respect the Moderators
- Do not post using the color red. This color is reserved for moderators.
- Do not impersonate moderators. Do not claim to speak for the moderators.

Rule 10: Respect the decisions of the moderators
- The moderation teams reserves the right to warn, suspend, or permanently ban users judged to be acting against the spirit of the rules, even if the user is following the letter of the rules.
- Do not argue with moderators about moderator decisions. You can disagree with a moderator’s opinions, just like any other poster, but when they post moderator actions in red text, it is considered final.
- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

  • Why stop at a VIP?

    Yes, I'm looking for a dev response to this. Yes, I also want to hear what everyone else thinks.

    Clearly people are willing to spend substantial amounts of money on this game. I know I have in relation to my other hobbies: chess. Pool (1 pocket!). Camping. Traveling. Mountain biking.
    I could have done some awesome things with my money and time. Instead I have wasted it on digital content that is not mine to keep.

    So if I, and many others like me, are willing to spend, why haven't you upgraded the VIP pack? Where's my $250 option? $500? $1000?

    I ask because y'all are meager when it comes to getting some free FP around here. So if the best I can get is an extra 10% on my $100, at least let me get 10% on a higher figure. It's win-win: I invest a larger portion of $, giving you more guaranteed sales, and you reward that with a higher giveaway of FP.

    You have an infinite supply of something that you are the sole owners of. You control the supply and the distribution. The overhead is minimal once a market has been established. Giving away FP will only increase the demand, not cap it.

    That is all.

    I never thought about this before, but it is a good idea. I'm always going for the best offer on the table. The 1000 option would be out of my range, but I might just save for it.

    I think where part of the issue is that if you made such a large purchase on your credit card, it would be flagged. You would need to use iTunes gift cards for larger purchases.

      I've never seen in app purchase offers above $100. It may be an apple limitation.

        I personally use Gift Cards 90% of the time, as my grocery store give fuel points rewards for purchasing gift cards (Thanks Kroger!) But when I do spend money it tends to be in clumps. So instead of $300 this week and $200 in two weeks I'd rather rock $500 today with that extra 10% FP.

        Current FP bonus w/VIP pack is 65 FP I believe. So with an Original Gangster pack @ $500, the extra FP should be at a minimum 325. And that's just extrapolating the 650 FP in a VIP pack x5; at the current set up they give slight bonuses at the $20, $50 and $100 that have nothing to do with the extra 10% after you make the purchase. So to me it makes sense that at higher increments they would give away more FP as a part of the deal; when you add that extra 10% on I bet you're looking at an extra 60-100 FP. Not a crazy amount, but to have the option would be nice.
