So, you want to start a contest and you want to offer XP as a prize? Well, we've got three one way that you can supplement your winners with prizes, so it all depends on how you want to give it out:


You can give away the XP to the winners using the Give Away Points (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/xperience.php?go=gap)feature. This takes XP directly out of your own pocket, but it allows you to spend less than 500xp.
You could purchase the Offer XP (#) item from the shop, which gives you permission to offer XP for a contest. Basically, at the end of your contest, you would PM the winners and corresponding XP to me. If you have purchased the Offer XP item, then I will hand out the XP accordingly. This method allows you to give away more XP than you end up spending.
You also have the option to buy something from the Shop (#) and gift it to the winner(s). This uses XP out of your own pocket, and it isn't the same as handing out raw XP, but it does allow you to control how the XP is used.

Just go with the way you feel works best. :)

Edit by CC: I plan on adding new/interesting rewards users can utilize for their contests - when I do so, I will update this sticky. Until then, I've roughly updated it to reflect the reality of the situation as it stands now.

From the "Offer XP" item in the Shop:

1) This is only eligible for contests related to LittleBigPlanet.

that's OK, I guess I can just hand out a prize.

what is the max amount of XP that can be given away in a contest using Offer XP? I've got an idea about what would be too much, but an exact answer would be awesome.

It's all decided based on the situation. The kind of contest you're running, how many winners, how long it will last, etc are all factors, so I can't give a solid number until I know the details of the contest.

How can you give away XP as a price? I mean how do you get XP to give away from shop?

This thread is very old and I'm sad to say this but XP doesn't exist anymore. Neither does shop.

We all know that the thread is old but I think they say that they will put the Exp and the shop back right?

you are replying to a month old post there by the way :p Back then we didn't know when/if exp was coming back. You are correct though, a new version of vb exp is coming soon, which will be rather nice.

Exp would... when it comes back...

Which I THINK is this week...

I know I've said that MANY times over the past few months, but exp IS out again- NOW we're just waiting for someone ELSE to update THEIR mod so we can have shop, since CC won't add it till we get Shop and giving exp and all that stuff. So... I think this week. Let's hope it's for sure this time .-.

But yeah, there will be an "offer exp" prize... which costs 500 exp and then you can offer as much exp as you want in your contest... But you probably can't afford that yet... hm. Well... I'll probably have more exp then I deserve, so I may give out contest exp packages to people I think are deserving... just cause.

But yeah, you can make your challenge now, you just need to wait till exp comes back unless you have something else to offer :/

Hey, I'm keen to set up a competition soon. Is the offer XP item still in the shop? I had a good look, but couldn't find it.

It's now called "Donate Xp", and it comes straight from your own point supply. :p

... This thread is probably obsolete by now :/

Sure.

This thread is about how to give out lbpc xp for contests though.
