Happy Holidays, RT is a year old! and Site Updates!

Post Number:#1  Unread postby MidnightCoder » Sun Dec 26, 2010 5:29 pm


Hi everybody,

Firstly, I'd like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, or other holidays you may be celebrating. RabbitTalk is celebrating its first birthday as well, and I've added some new features to celebrate it.

We now have a new ebooks section on the site, where RabbitTalk members can download rabbit related materials free of charge. There is a small catch though. We decided to host and maintain these files for the community as a reward for your participation on the site. Instead of a boring old post count restriction, we have implemented something called BunnyBucks, and every time you make a post, or a new topic, or add an attachment, you'll receive a few BunnyBucks. This forum currency is currently only useful for downloading the ebooks, but we have some ideas for more ways to use it in future.

Basically, make a post, download a book. I know nobody here will have trouble with that, we're at nearly 18,000 posts in our first year! :P

BunnyBucks are not real money. They cannot be bought or sold for money, and they have absolutely no cash value. BunnyBucks are just for fun.

I'm sure MaggieJ will post some more info about the ebooks we currently offer. I will say they are all in the public domain, and they can be downloaded and shared legally. We intend to expand our library from time to time, and if anyone has material they would like to submit, please email me at support@midnightcoder.ca with the document, and information about its copyright or license terms. We will only host files in the ebooks section which are free to redistribute and use by anyone.

There will be a few more features coming soon. I'll keep you posted. In the meantime, congrats on making this such a great community over the last year, and thanks for helping us grow! :D

Congratulations on the one year anniversary of the site. Good job to the creators and moderators. This is a very comfortable site with great people.

Do we get retroactive Bunnybucks for our activity since we joined?

No, the donate button is for people who wish to donate real money to RabbitTalk, to help us offset the costs associated with keeping the site online and also to help us add new features. It is entirely voluntary, but donations, even small ones, are much appreciated. :)

ladysown, that function shouldn't have shown up at all. It's been disabled for the time being.

Truckinguy, points won't be retroactive. I just don't have the time to manually set 300 people's points. It's a new feature and a new year, that will have to suffice.

MaggieJ, you made a mistake. She was referring to the link under the BunnyBucks value in threads, which I've since disabled (again, dunno how it showed up again :shock: )

Oh, one other detail for anyone who's wondering. The little gold star you see beside some peoples' names means they've been registered for a full year. This time next year, it will increment to two stars, etc. It has no other function or significance other than a bit of recognition that you've been a member here for at least a year. :)

If I remember right, we opened to the public on Christmas Eve of last year. The board was installed on the 16th, but it took some time for me to get everything ready.

Let me know how the downloading goes? I tested it myself a bit, but more feedback is always better. :)

It looks like there is a lot of good ones.
