Where do I sign up?

You can sign up for a free account on this page.

How can I get free stuff from the member shop?

You can spend earned coins in our member shop, but only if you earned 25 respect points or more!

Respect is a long-term value to prevent members from spamming meaningless messages to get coins fast.

You don't lose respect when you buy something in the shop.

Example

You have 5500 coins and 53 respect.

You get a free skateboard in the member shop for 5000 coins.

You now have 500 coins and still 53 respect.

How can I earn coins?

  • Start a topic on the forum 5 coins
  • Reply to a blog post 5 coins
  • Reply to anything else on the site 1 coin
  • Add a skatespot 5 coins
  • Add a picture to a skatespot 5 coins
  • Other (winning a game of skate, filling in a survey, etc...)

How can I earn respect points?

Respect can be given by any member with more than 25 respect. Once you earned 25 respect, you'll be able to give respect to other members as well.

If you help other members, make good posts and contribute to the site, you'll earn 25 respect in no time.

On the other hand, insulting everyone and constantly spamming meaningless messages will bring your respect score down fast.

I want to receive less or no e-mails anymore, what can I do?

When you're logged in, go to your profile. On top of that page, you can see an 'edit profile' button.

On that page, you can select or deselect notification e-mails.

How can I remove my account?

We can manually remove your account for you. Contact us with the e-mail address that you registered with, also include your username and motivation why you want to remove your account.

I forgot my password, how can I get it back?

Simply fill in your e-mail address on this page and we'll mail you your password!

I'm trying to upload a picture, but it won't work. What can I do?

First of all, try to refresh the page, because the thumbnail might not have been created.

If this didn't fix it, make sure your picture meets the following requirements:

  1. Only the following file extensions are allowed: .jpg OR .png OR .gif
  2. Your picture filesize can be no larger than 5MB (MegaBytes).
  3. The filename can not contain any spaces (and try to avoid other special characters as well).

You can decrease file size or change the file extension by opening the image in Paint and saving it as a .jpg file.

If you think your file meets these requirements, and the upload still fails, please contact us.

I'm trying to upload a video, but it won't work. What can I do?

First of all, try to refresh the page, because the thumbnail might not have been created.

If this didn't fix it, make sure your video meets the following requirements:

  1. Only the following file extensions are allowed: .avi OR .mpg OR .wmv OR .mov
  2. Your video filesize can be no larger than 50MB (MegaBytes).
  3. The filename can not contain any spaces (and try to avoid other special characters as well).

You can decrease file size or change the file extension by opening the image in Windows Moviemaker and decrease file size/quality when you're exporting the video again.

If you think your file meets these requirements, and the upload still fails, please contact us.

How can I add content (trick tips, guides, music,blogs or reviews) to the site?

E-mail us what you wrote (together with your username), and if it meets the requirements below, we'll post it on the site and reward you with plenty of coins.

  1. All the text has to be written by yourself in (good) English.
  2. Some content (such as trick tips) requires pictures/video clips. We won't post trick tips without pictures OR a video clip. Also, it can't be a picture or video you found somewhere on the web, all material has to be yours (or one of your friends, with their permission).

Thanks for the help!
