How to Purchase VIP Memberships with real money Purchase Standard VIP for $100 YTtalk Forum Cash - http://yttalk.com/shop/ Purchase Standard VIP for $3.99 USD via PayPal - http://yttalk.com/account/upgrades Purchase Super VIP for $6.99 USD via PayPal - http://yttalk.com/account/upgrades YTtalk Cash Explained YTtalk cash is virtual cash and is earned as you post around the forums, for every post you make (over 200 characters) you earn 1 YTtalk Cash, for every new thread you earn 2 YTtalk Cash. Please be aware that forum staff have automated tools that monitor the quality and frequency of posts. Mass-posting / binge posting / spam posting to farm cash (or for any reason) in any part of the forum is strictly against the rules. Likewise, making pointless posts with no value is also against the rules. Any members caught doing this will be automatically banned and their cash removed. YTtalk cash that has been fairly earned by posting normally can be used to purchase VIP Membership which you can find in the Shop. You can transfer Cash to other members by visiting Transfer Cash and filling in the transaction details. Many people use their YTtalk Cash for VIP Memberships and also for buying backgrounds, banners, intros and various other things within the Graphics, Intros & Music forum. The recipient of the cash can use it towards their own VIP Membership. Posting threads in the Videos and Channels forum and Reviews and Feedback earns zero forum cash. Responses earn forum cash as normal however. Can I convert my YTtalk Cash into real money or deposit YTtalk Cash into my PayPal account? No. YTtalk Cash is not real currency and is only used for the forum.
