Just wondering. I wanted to install a points system on my site. Its my first point system i want to install to generate more traffic and posts. I dont have any experience with a pointsystem. SO i searched the resources and found a few.

BD Bank
Credits
Xfpoints

BD bank looks nice, but have just a few possibility's and isnt compatible with 1.2. beta's. I dont know when or if a update is coming.

Credits has a lot of possibility's, Has a free version and is writing that a premium is coming. Free version is not compatible for 1.2 beta's. I dont know how the support is.

Xfpoints is compatible and has more functions then bd bank, but less then Credits. HAs a free version and a paid version. FRee version is compatible with 1.2 the paid i dont know.

Now my question.;)

Maybe you can share youre findings about the point systems. Or can point me in the right direction wich one to choose. Offcourse they need to be compatible for use in Sportsbook Stocktrader Raffles (ice) shop

My live site is running on the xf 1. version

my testsite on the beta so i cant test the point systems wich are running only under xf 1.X

[bd] Bank, hands down. It will get updated, xfrocks is great with support. His product is the best overall from the selection above. I have used [bd] Bank with Sportsbook and Stocktrader, and the integration is seamless. I have never used it on Raffles.

Thanks,

Do you know if the possibilitys are growing? I tried [bd] Banks on the 1.2 beta and its working. (with some problems, If you try to delete a thread or to move one, you get some errors) but its good to hear that the support is great, and its working good.

I want to pick one system, and don't wanna change to another if the "choosen one" ;) is not working good or has to little options.

I use a few of xfrocks' addons. After going through xfrocks' [bd] Banking discussion, I can see he's very dedicated to to this addon and of course other of his addons, (sorry to say) unlike the other two you mentioned. I just started to use Credits but I think I am leaving for [bd] Banking due to lack communication with the Credits developer for issues I am facing. Just my honest opinion.

Thanks. I was going through the discussions, i saw that xFrocks banking had no or a little delay's from support. In the two other ones i saw severall comments about the support. Sometimes i need support and if you then get no responce.... Then go for the better add on.

@Cees50 yeah, like you said. I faced an issue with Credits where the Alert Preferences aren't appearing, the developer said to fix this for me but hear nothing from him thereafter. I know the addon is not a paid one. But at least update me the progress. I can't leave the bug on my forum for months. The best option is to get an alternative which will work fine. :)

Agreeing BD Bank as XfRocks is the most reliable from that list to maintain, fix and update.
How I wished I picked BD Banking at the very beginning :( Now I have to import the points from Credits into Banking. Not sure how can I achieve that, I am waiting for xfrocks' reply.

you don't need some fancy importer to do that, just a quick mass update statement via phpmyadmin will do the trick..

Note: replace field names with the actual field names in the xf_user table.

Code:
 UPDATE xf_user SET bdbankcashfield = *******creditsfield

@bobster65 Thanks for your guide. :) But should I uninstall Credits first or change the field name first, then install bd Banking? Will uninstalling Credits remove the credits column in database in xf_user table? Because as far as I know, if I uninstall an addon, it will also remove the addons' tables e.g. xf_credits_actions.

uninstalling the credits addon will remove the field, so no, don't uninstall until you've updated the data into the bd bank cash field.

My findings as of recent with money/ point systems.

I am stuck in a rock with a hard place. My members love the points/ money system (I came over from Vbulletin which had VB Xperience system with buying icon items with their earnings - like xfimage - if ever fixed)

******* credits- no support in discussion threads I can see- his author link breaks my footer! - http://xenforo.com/community/resources/credits.1391/

BD Banking- bare boned minimal -
http://xenforo.com/community/resources/bd-banking.536/

Xf points- down, being built from scratch -
http://xenforo.com/community/resources/xfpoints-free.882/history

Any other point/money system out there with a shop?
