No, cause it's not there.

What you are "requesting" (which is ambitious, requesting features on a not even released extension), is not going to be part of this extension.
This is extension is purely for receiving points.

What you are refering to, would fall under a "shop" extension implementing this Advanced Points System.

But, we still have quite a few more tests to do and fix any problems / issues along the way.

It's a whole new points system.

Any chance of a shop extension to accompany this, in which users can spent points in exchange for ‘objects’ that show up in their profile?

Please read viewtopic.php?p=15187741#p15187741
Are those planned or will they also be available on release?

Future news will be posted in due course, so far what's written is written.

It's a whole new points system.
I understand that, but what I meant was will it conflict with the Ultimate Points or can we use both ?
In other words, do I need To delete the Ultimate Points System to be able to use this Point System :?:
It's a whole new points system.
if we can use both it will be very confusing for users on a site that already have points, it will be like having 2 currencies.

Sorry, just trying to figure out how these 2 point systems will work together since a lot of phpbb users with a lot of subscribers are using the Ultimate Points System already

Well, it would be odd to have two points system enabled in the first place.
That being said, it would eventually be possible to switch over and users will still have their points amount, as the same column is being used in the USERS_TABLE, namely user_points. You'll have to re-do the settings and and point values, but they can pretty much achieve the same / more.

However, we're still in the process of testing and amending the code, in between developing other custom extensions and finishing our own website: The Studio. So it's hard to tell when this extension isn't even finished yet.

not to put this ext. down (i think it's a great ext.) but as you stated

why go through so much work to make a points ext. that already exists ?

would it not be easier to make a shop ext. or other add on's as you suggested that's in the works for this points system and make them for the points system that some are already using ?

as i said, i'm not knocking this ext. down, but as you said, there's still a lot of work and testing to do, so why bother to make another point system instead of just adding to the one that's already out there ?

This ext looks really nice with the JS statistics and stuff - not to mention the extendablity, but what I could really do with (and I speak for many I hope) is a shop extension for either of the points extensions.

What’s the point in points with nothing to spend them on? We can only hope someone gets on top of this soon :P
