Default Unanswered: Gifted question

I've been a gift trainee for about a week now... and it's very fun and I greatly appriciate that I'm given this opportunity.

I was looking around today seeing what requirements you had to meet in order to become gfited, I was curious. I found under the FAQ's a bunch of information ( click here for that information if anyone else wants to read it )

I printed out the list and glued in on the inside of my GE notebook, so I would remember to follow these guidlines and be a good trader.

Well, about a half hour ago I was answering a question on a different topic and I was reading through some answers... and i noticed somebody with 0 giftz... but they were Gifted. Then I saw another person with 1giftz and was also gifted.
I was just wondering how this was possible.
I hope asking this doesn't make me look bad in my position and will lower my chances of becoming gifted one day, but I was just curious on how this was possible. I thought that you had expirience and have been a gift trainee for atleast 2-4 weeks ( under the faq is says that ).
I also see members who have 55giftz and are still gift trainees.

Can anybody explain this to me? I'm confused.

Thanks a bunch:pg:

I can't look at the list you are looking at, because I'm not a gift trainee yet, and it won't let me to that part of the MB.

I did read that it was up to your gift coach when you would move up a level, and that people would move at different times.

Lint to sign-up thread with rules


quote from there:

PLEASE NOTE: Becoming fully Gifted and moving on to the GE is NOT based on number of trades. The coaches will decide when a GT has a good understanding of the rules and exhibits good exchange practices and behavior.

so it's pretty subjective and depends a lot on you and your coach from what I can tell. I hope that will help make me a good GT too

Good luck! It sounds like a long process, but it's to protect everyone from scammers, from what I can tell. I wish you all the best.

What it means is that person was gifted before there was a training program.

The training program didn't always exist. So some people who became gifted before training existed may never have made any trades. You'll find people in the big GE who trade without having their own threads.. and some who don't quite "get" the rules because they never went through training.

Default Re: Gifted question

do the Giftz (#) mean how many trades you've made?

so if it's 0, they've never traded?

I didn't know the training program was new.

Bonsai, your toucan looks neat with the beak sticking out- and congratulations on gettng the entire suit.

My son's reindeer looks funny with the antlers sticking out of the top of his head. When I get around to playing with some graphics, I'm going to try to upload that as my avatar LOL.

BTW, if you want to know what specifcally you'd need to do in order to move through training faster, ask your coach for the link to DoobiesDad's FAQ for trainees. It should be in the "Ask a Gift Coach" thread... post #48 maybe?

That post details all of the things that he and the other coaches look for in order to determine whether a trainee is ready to be nominated for graduation. It's VERY helpful, and it answers questions you didn't even know you had prior to reading it!
