WI$ are a new thing on WI. You get them from posting on threads, voting on polls, making threads, giving other WI$ and giving others Rep, of course theres many more ways.
Later, you will able to buy membership for special sections on WI along with many otehr things. I hope this answered your question, or you can always go to the thread made by missgnomie.
Yes, in theory you have to wait 60 days to make a profit. That is what I am understanding from the savings feature -- but like a real bank you do not put things into savings to take it out right away 10 days later... kwim?
You put in the extra you have to develop interest.
Living avatars only needs to be downloaded and installed by the person who owns the forum.
I would think the same way Mathmom (thanks for answering questions!!) I would think all areas apply to your WI bucks count, but the length of the post may influence the amount of bucks given out.
I'm not sure if that would work or not -- that is a good question and concern ~ however it does say that deposits may be moderated, so if someone was trying to over ride the system I'm sure it can be looked into.
What are WI bucks? I know their money on WI, but what is it for? Can you buy stuff with it? If you can, how do you buy stuff? How do yo earn more WI bucks? What if you ran out of money to pay the intrist?
Sorry for too much questions.
Thank you, MissGnomie, for this comprehensive guide. I read it, rated it, and subscribed to the thread yesterday. I plan to revisit frequently, since it is a living document that will grow and change as this new feature is developed and explained further.
I had noticed, already, that there doesn't seem to be any info in the guide yet about what activities subtract from your WI bucks. As I said, I had noticed the omission, but I wasn't concerned, as I figured that that info would be added later.
However, I am now concerned about this information, because my WI bucks balance suddenly dropped this afternoon by over 30%! When the feature was added, I was credited ~1,700, probably because I have a few referrals. Through my activities around the site the last two days, my balance had climbed to just under 1,900. Today, I have read a few things, rated a couple of threads, posted once, and given rep to a couple of people. I also decided to update my profile, profile pic, and avatar, sort of because I'm excited about the new feature and want to renew my efforts to be more involved in the site.
I haven't been checking my balance after every thing I've done around the site today, but suddenly I look up to the top, left corner and my balance has shrunk to 1,201. I am really sad about this. The only new thing I did was the profile update, and maybe that isn't what cut my balance, but I can't think of anything else to account for it. I had thought that, if anything, updating my profile would add to my WI bucks, because I'm participating... but I wouldn't have done it if I'd known it would be so costly.
Could you please share with us whatever information you have about ways that we can lose WI bucks (besides the banking and gifting fees)? I'm not the kind of person who's going to sweat every measly buck, but this was a huge subtraction, and I'd really appreciate being able to look out for that in the future.
Thanks again for all the work you're doing explaining the new system to us.
P.S. I hope it's all right to include the amounts... it seemed relevant. If it's not proper, please let me know to edit, or will a moderator please fix?
