Default Selling Right From the Garden

Anyone who has a Webkinz Garden knows how annoying it is to have to drag and drop all of your food into the W-shop to sell it. Well, I'll cut straight to the point. My mom came up with an idea that [notranslate]Ganz[/notranslate] should make a feature so instead of dragging and dropping, people can sell their food right when they harvest it. Here is a picture:

First of all, and most importantly, we aren't talking about a real economy. Prices don't fluctuate in WW. There's no supply-and-demand. This is true even if you take the WI GE into account when defining the WW "economy". Any system of exchange where a pot of chestnuts is considered to be equivalent in value to a bed that looks like Cinderella's coach is not an economy to be taken seriously.

Secondly, there are tons of easy ways to make KC on WW (jobs, dailies, hourly activities, Quizzy's, etc. etc.). The introduction of these hasn't resulted in devaluing KC. Being able to sell produce faster won't, either.

Thirdly, selling your produce this way doesn't suddenly make it easy-as-pie to garden for profit. You still have to shell out the money for the outdoor rooms and seeds; monitor daily (or close to it) for weeds and harvestable plants; and rake and harvest when you find them. It's still a significant investment of time and KC.

(I got that from dictionary.com )

Even if there is a sudden increase in the volume of WW money that people have, it isn't going to result in the "rise of the general level of prices" on WW. The prices are going to stay the same as they always are. So, no inflation.

(And IMO, prices are pretty irrelevant right now anyway for WW players who are savers, because of how easy it already is to earn the KC to afford them if you concentrate on it.)

I definitely agree that kids should learn about how to work for their money, and save, and not spend everything they get, and that the KC system on WW helps teach them that. And that's really important.

But I don't agree that this important aspect of WW would be lost, because even if it suddenly becomes quick and easy to sell your produce, you still have to internalise the savings lesson in order to collect loads of KC.

Why?

Because even though you're totally right that other activities don't come close to comparing to the kind of profit you can make if you're really committed to gardening; the key phrase there is "if you're really committed to gardening".

It takes at least 6 days (and as many as 11 days) to make any KC out of gardening, and daily maintenance is required over that period. That takes time and dedication, even before any selling happens. So I don't think we'd have hordes of non-gardening WW users suddenly become hardcore gardeners.

Here's how I figure that:

Let's say you have 7 gardens full of 80 strawberry plants each. I have 7 gardens myself, and I would say it takes me roughly half an hour to maintain them every day, longer if I'm unlucky enough to hit rainy weather when I do it. (Rain slows gardening down to a painful crawl.) So it would take you 4.5 hours of work over 9 days to yield probably about 2,800 strawberries and 16,800KC.

By contrast, you'd probably make only about 3,600KC if you spent 4.5 hours at Quizzy's. But then again, Quizzy's is way more fun, gives you KC right away, and doesn't cost 35,000KC to get started!

I'm guessing that if you average out how long it takes to drag 9 produce units into the sell slots, click the Sell button, and wait for the sell slots to empty, it probably works out to an average of about 2 seconds to sell one produce unit? Which means that those 2,800 strawberries would take a bit more than 1.5 hours to sell.

Therefore, your time spent over 9 days on your gardening-and-selling would be 6 hours now, and a bit more than 4.5 hours after making produce-selling quicker. That would make gardening three-quarters of the chore it is now, not one-tenth.

Result: making selling fast and easy would not at all kill the effort-vs-money balance of the game. I really do think that only people who are committed to making big cash on WW are going to garden faithfully, regardless of whether you make it easy to sell produce or not. You would of course get more gardeners by making selling easier, but not enough that everyone will be Webkinz millionaires.

(I'm not a Webkinz millionaire yet. But I'm working on it!)

PS - sorry to plug a serious discussion of the WW economy into a suggestion thread. I realise that's pretty silly! But still fun.

That is a fantastic idea! And I agree with hazi's modification about telling people how much KC they'll be getting for it.
