Just a quick question about the Yakpoints... They are displayed really strange next to our avatar, with a period and an apostrophe in strange spots that aren't familiar to me in my American sense of currency. What country is this system from or is it just something unique to yakface?

LOL! Yeah! It's a known bug! The period and the comma should be swapped! So 20.400,000 is actually 20,400.00. Make sense?

You get five points per post, so they add up quickly. We had a promotion a couple of years ago when we gave out points by the tens of thousands for various things like posts or regular contributions. We have a YakBank, where you can collect interest and earn more points!

As of now, the YakAuctions are defunct or at least on hold. However, we're having a great giveaway for a couple of the Target Hoth sets. So, be sure to check that out!

The store is closed for the time being. (See my post above yours for more information.) If it is opened again, be sure to check out these boards. Thanks!

As Prof has mentioned... YAKAuctions and the YAKStore have been put on hiatus. We have moved our focus to doing more random giveaways that include everybody and even the playing field a little bit. This allows everybody equal opportunities and makes things a tad more fair! We have also increased incentive for people to begin following us on Facebook and Twitter. This way they are easily networked into all the latest news from YAK! Be mindful though... you never know when all those saved up points might come in handy! We are working on ideas on how to give people the change to spend all those points sometime this summer! Any ideas can be sent to me via pm! Thank you and thanks for supporting the forums!

So just for posting this reply I should get one point? I have a few posts so far, and have not seen anything yet. I'm still pretty new on this forum, so It's cool. I'm sure they will start showing up very soon.

The YAKPoints have more or less been disbanded for now. Sorry about that!
