As you may have already noticed, there are a few new features available on the site after yesterday's maintenance. The two major additions is the ability to buy pins and a currency used to buy them. Let me start by talking about the pin shop. Pin Shop The Pin Shop, as you can tell from its name, is where you can buy pins. The pins available for purchase are exclusive to the store and each pin can be categorized as Common, Uncommon, and Rare which determines their price in the store. In addition to their rarity, certain pins may not always be available for purchase in the shop. Pins can also have a time limit on them as follows: Permanent - As the name suggests these are available at all times. Rotating - These are rotated on a 1 (rare), 2(uncommon), or 3(common) monthly basis as part of a continuous rotating stock. Themed - These are special themed pins that will only be available during certain events. In addition to buying these pins for yourself, you can also purchase pins for a friend. Now you know about the Pin Shop and what you can buy, but how will you be able to buy these pins? Well... Munny You can buy the pins with Munny of course. Munny can be obtained in a variety of ways: Posting - As long as your post is over 100 characters, you get rewarded 2 Munny for each post. Making a Thread - As long as the opening post of your thread has 100 characters, you get rewarded 5 Munny for each thread. Logging In - You can earn 10 Munny a day by simply visiting the site. Liked Content - You earn 2 Munny everytime someone else likes your post. Milestones - You can earn bonus Munny (ranging between 10-300) by hitting certain milestones. You can see the full list of milestones by visiting here. In addition to earning Munny, there is also a system in place that will allow you to send Munny to friends. If you have been on the site for awhile, you may already have a hefty amount of Munny to spend. Any milestone goal you hit prior to the introduction of the Munny system has been retroactively rewarded to you. Previous posts and liked content are not awarded retroactively.
