A break down of features - Here is a simple break down of the features & what you can expect to find. Some features may take away bucks but there are plenty of them that reward bucks to balance that.
There is no "set" reward/fee yet for these features as it is being adjusted to find a fair balance. More helpful threads may receive more bucks then others, etc.
In some features, the fee or reward depends on the user group interaction.For example a moderator may not receive a fee for private messages as they are required to send many out.
As mentioned before, when this is known it is noted by the icon.
User group induction -
What it is: a feature that rewards you with "bucks" when you move up in user groups. For example when you move from being a gifted member to a gift guru.
What is is: a referral is like an invitation to join something. - When you tell your friends about WI and they put your username into the referral box - you get bucks! Visits & Activity based on user group -
What this means: The activity (participation) and visits to WI and how much "bucks" you get for participating in things are based upon your user group. For example - if a webkinz may earn more then a lil kinz for visiting, this may be not be as high as a gift guru.
Birthday present -
What this means: Remember that birthdate you gave WI when you registered? Well now you get a birthday gift on your birthday! Woo hoo!
Reputation given & received -
What this means: When you give reputation to another user, you will earn bucks. Same with giving it away. A nice reward for spreading a little bit of joy around!
