    It seems that every post I do, I get $2 'transferred from the bank'.

    What is that for? What can I do with it?

    I moved this to a more suitable forum.

    You get money each time from the forum, aka "bank" - right now you cannot do anything with the money accumulated. We have plans for the money however coming soon. :)

    Thank you for both moving this to a more suitable forum, and for answering my question! I really do appreciate it.

    To clarify, every time you post a topic or a reply, you earn a small amount of Forum cash. This forum cash can be used for exchanges in the BAF Cash Exchange Board.

    In regards to:
    We don't actually have plans for official services you can get right now with it, other than the ability to change your display name. Anything that is said that doesn't come from one of us Community Leaders (Admins), are not an official service provided by BAF.

    I am also wondering what is the money for. It's a good thing that you ask this question. Now I understand.

    I am glad you asked the question... I was planing on asking at some point but you beat me to it and I am glad. Those dollars look good there staring at you. I was planning to cash out when I reached $100:D:D.

    I'm taking a shot in the dark here, but I think that it has something to do with the amount of posts that you make, because I am brand new to this forum and I already have 9 bucks raked up.

    Rundown again, this is a virtual currency that only relates to this board, and that you earn it by posting or trading it with other users. And you cannot cash it out with actual money. This is because this board is a business advice board, and not a money making forum.

    I am not planning to use my forum money yet, I want to make it 1000 before I'll spend mine.

    There are really only two ways you can earn forum cash. Those ways, are earning by posting, or by going to the Forum Cash Exchange, and completing exchanges for it. http://www.businessadviceforum.com/forums/baf-cash-exchange.55/

    I was wondering the same thing actually. When I first saw it I thought it was actual money I had earned from the site. It is a really cool idea though. I just didn't really understand it at first.

    What exactly do you mean by "official thread" - do you mean an advertisement? If so, you are correct. You either have to earn enough BAF cash to post the ad, or you can pay $4.95 in actual cash. Other than that, we really don't have accommodations for an "official" thread for a company. You can't really use a forum thread for official company communications.
    As far as the amount of BAF Cash you have earned, you currently have $4. BAF Cash is earned for quality posts in many of the forums, but not all. I checked your profile, and you do not have any warnings - yet. It is possible that the posts you made to make $29 were not up to our quality standards, but were not technically violations of our rules, so they were removed without giving you warnings, but still resulted in a loss of BAFCash. So ! checked our "Junk Posts", but none of the posts there were yours - the latest date on them is October 19th. Someone higher up than me will have to look into this for you.

    Hi there.

    You posted in the Website & Business Promotion section and did not have enough BAF cash to post there. Your thread was removed because you did not have enough BAF cash. Once you earn $50 in BAF cash either by making quality contributions or purchasing the BAF cash you can post your thread in the Website & Business Promotion section. No BAF cash was removed from your account because of the post. There were several other posts that were removed because of low quality but no warnings were given. This resulted in the loss of BAF cash. These were short posts mainly. An example is that one of them just said "Thanks" so it was removed.

    With all of that being said. You seem to be a great community member and we really look forward to seeing you in here. If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to contact myself or one of our other moderators. Thanks for your understanding.
