VGVIDS.com tries to be more than just your source for game related news. We like you to become part of a growing gaming community. It’s our ambition to become the Greatest Gaming Community on the web and for that we need your help. To make engagement more fun and to bring some competitiveness to VGVIDS, we introduce several types of rewards down below which you can earn as a signed in user.

Manually rewarded Tokens:
The VG Team can decide to manually reward Tokens to users that send in links and video URL’s via the SUBMIT VID button in the header menu (dropdown menu in mobile view). Depending on the mood of the reviewing team member and the value of the link / URL for VGVIDS, the amount of rewarded Tokens can be anywhere between -100 and 5001. Yes, also manually awarded Tokens can be deducted in case the content of your link or URL entails an unprecedented level of stupidity. The same accounts for users that break the House Rules in which case deducting Tokens can be one of the punishments. Respect our VG Authoritae! Besides submitting content via the above route, all forms of engagement on VGVIDS.com can be rewarded with Tokens by VG Team members.
Hidden Tokens (Coupon Codes):
Somewhere on VGVIDS.com you can find a Coupon Code which you can enter in order to earn a shitload of Tokens. We’re not going to say the amount or where you can find it. Gamers can figure it out… or they cheat. Whatever suits you best, good luck! Occasionally we’ll share new Coupon Codes. The more you’re active, the less you miss! We’ll share most Coupon Codes via our Twitter account. Please click on this little bird to stay in touch and miss nothing:
What can I do with Tokens?
VGVIDS has a Ranking Level system based on the amount of Tokens you’ve earned. Once you achieve a certain Ranking Level you can’t lose your Ranking Level anymore, even when you reduce the amount of Tokens in your account. This means for example that if you transfer Tokens to fellow users this will not impact your Ranking Level. You will keep your level of seniority.
Ranking Level overview:
Rank: Level 0 (Newbie) | 0-249 Tokens
Rank: Level 1 (Explorer) | 250-399 Tokens
Rank: Level 2 (Stickarounder) | 400-699 Tokens
Rank: Level 3 (Veteran-trainee) | 700-999 Tokens
Rank: Level 4 (Veteran) | 1000-1999 Tokens
Rank: Level 5 (King of Gamers) | 2000-3999 Tokens
Rank: Level 6 (Gamer Emperor) | 4000-9999 Tokens
VG (Token) Ranking
However, lowering the Tokens you have in your account does impact your VG (Token) Ranking. In the footer of the website you can see the Top 3 Users with the most Tokens in their user accounts. As a signed in user your own position compared to all other users will be displayed right underneath the Top 3.
The competitive element we mentioned earlier comes here into play. By being an active user on VGVIDS.com you can earn Tokens automatically or be rewarded them manually, which will help you to increase your VG (Token) Ranking. On the Rankings page you can see the full overview of users and their (Token) Ranking position. It is possible you see users with less Tokens, but who are being displayed higher up on the page. This is because this page shows you the Token Ranking per Ranking Level. Users that transferred Tokens to other Users, will lose their Tokens, but not lose their Ranking Level. The Ranking page starts with displaying Users of the highest Ranking Level on top.
Live is full of choices. You can either save your Tokens to increase in VG Ranking, or you can be kind to others and transfer Tokens in case you like their contributions on the site. A third option is to spend your Tokens on Bonus Material. Via the Bonus Material page you see an overview of images with header titles that give away a glimpse of what you can expect in case you decide to buy the bonus content. Depending on your funds and log in status, one of these three messages can be shown:
- Insufficient funds: The bonus content is too expensive in terms of Tokens. Keep earning.
- Sufficient funds: The price of the bonus content will be visible. Press the button to unlock.
- Visitors Message: Bonus content is only for users, please register to enjoy the content.
