Don't worry wolflver, you're not alone. I spent hours reading up on this and came up the following....

- WI Bucks are going to be valuable at some time in the future, to purchase items.
- Right now, they are only good for WI membership subscriptions, if you already have one you can't do
anything with the bucks.
- You cannot ask outright for WI bucks, so if a newbie wants a subscription, you have no way of
knowing, and could be wasting the bucks if they have no desire to become and member.
- Giving your bucks away is considered a nice gesture, (I have no idea why because it does the
other person no good either.)
- When you give someone bucks, you have to enter a comment. For people like me, that is awkward
since I feel silly saying "Here's some virtual money because you have a nice room. I know there is
nothing you can do with it, but I feel compelled to give my bucks away."
- The whole banking system is confusing and if you are truly using the program, you should be
giving your bucks away anyway, so why put them in savings?

To sum it up, if you keep your bucks, you aren't using the program correctly. If you give them away,
you won't have any when items do become available for purchase. I feel the reps points are a much
better way of thanking others or expressing kudos for nice rooms or achievements.

I know the intentions of this program are great, and I'm sure at some time in the future it will be worth having the bucks when items become available. I had decided to just wait and see updates on where the program was going but it's been almost a year now and I still have no clue. But I am glad you reminded
me that I should be giving what I have to others. If it brings a smile to someone its worth it.

(Having just said all that, I just went and did some transactions. It was pretty fun! Go figure! LoL!)
