    I wanted to donate and get some instant cash. I read the first page on the donate section and it said, "Currently, for each £1 (or $2) you donate to the forum, you will receive 20 forum points, which can be used in the download section. "

    However, when I put in $30 donation and pressed ok it said, "Amount to donate: 30 U.S. Dollar. Thanks for your donation! In return, we will gladly to increase your total points by 300."

    If I am not mistaken, shouldn't it be 600 points?

    For each pound or $2 US you receive 20 forum points. So that equates to 10 forum points per dollar.

    So there has not been a mistake.

    Yep, what commy said.

    $2 USD = 20 points

    therefore

    $1 USD = 10 points
    $30 USD = 300 points



    1 GBP = 20 points.
    so 30 GBP = 600 points

    Expon should really change the wording and easier numbers
    And change the exchange rates
    £1 = $2 is so unfair on americans

    It totally makes sense now :D
    The wording did confuse me (and a friend too),

    The exchange rate is bad but the ab is worth it for 30. Americans aren't overpaying, Europeans are underpaying imo :p
