What does "Script kiddies" mean?
Doesn't it mean teenage guys who play games with scripts?

No ~ "teenage" is a popular misconception. A "Script kiddie" is usually but not always a teenager.

A script kiddie is one who uses scripts or applications created by others to hack into computers without having a clue what they are doing or how the hack works. They like to think they are hackers, but without underlying knowledge they are not hackers.

An analogy would be a light switch ~ I can use it to turn a light on or off.
But if the fixture and wiring and switch was already in place, using the switch does not make me an electrician.
Unless I understand how electricity and the components work, I am a "script kiddie", not an electrician.

Please do not email or PM me with a question:
1: I handle over a thousand emails a day, so chances are yours would be buried in the pile.
2: All questions will only be answered in the support forums, so the answers will be useful to others.

Help will be given to install/configure/use phpCOIN, but not programming help to modify phpCOIN operations. If you are competent enough to make programming changes, you should be competent enough to read the source code and figure things out :)

If you are trying to integrate posted sample code into your website, please take into account any changes in phpCOIN made after the code sample was posted. It is discouraging to spend hours answering questions or trying to track down an issue only to find that the user has a version of phpCOIN that makes the sample irrelevant
