Default Re: WI Bucks

In my Honest Opinion, I like the WI bucks. I'm not to tell anyone how many I have, I'm not embarassed by my amount, I think it's just right.
WI bucks encourage people to post more, to get that item for their living avatar (coming soon), for a WI membership, to give rep more, to chat with people more.. etc.

First of all it is private, at first when it wasn't private, my first thought was just like yours . But with it being private and I believe there was a rule set forth (I could be wrong) but we are not to discuss how much we have. If it is not yet a rule I would imagine it will become one.

Personally I would rather see the rep boxes hidden and the post counts along with the stars. My reason is this...when I first joined here, the reps were hidden there was basically no discussion of reps and people weren't making a big deal about it at all, I recieved reps and really appreicated the ones I had they were heartfelt and really wonderful to have. But now reps really are a huge problem here, people are actually asking for reps ...yes they are I see it over and over again sometimes it's not ...give me reps but it's how they end their post that makes it "appear" to be more about getting a little thumbs up than about just helping their fellow man.

And as for the posts I know many of our members have earned their stars, and I only recently figured out what they were even all about,,,how did I find this out...because of the chatter and competitions going on in the boards, if these were made private this would eliminate this competition and when you recieved a rep it would still be just as meaning full but without everyone having to see it. And when you reached certain star levels you could still feel proud of your accomplishments without making someone else feel bad. This of course is just my opinion but I think that the reps and the stars are far more damaging to some members than the WI bucks because they are out for everyone to see.

It doesn't matter how many reps, stars or WI bucks you have that doesn't show ones worth in the least, I have met many members here both new and old that have just as much helpful advice as someone with tons of rep boxes or tons of stars they are just don't post as much or they are still new, all people are equal and in the real world we don't see someone's title when we meet them we just see a person...it's too bad that couldn't be the same here. I see many young members feeling bad they are "just a webkinz" or they are complaining they don't have stars or lots of little green boxes this saddens me greatly...as we age and mature as people we learn these things are unimportant but to our younger members it is so by removing these or hiding them...removes these feelings and makes us more on equal ground.

So in my opinion as long as the WI bucks remain private it is a great system, after all we can share our fortunes with our friends and pay it forward when we recieve some to me it seems like a win win situation as long as it remains private and doesn't become another competition, after all in the real world we certainly don't tell others how much money we have in the bank, or what our house is worth or how many jews we have...that is just not discussed so this should be thought of in the same manner.
You Know that you can disable the Rep boxes now. You can still receive rep, but no one can tell how much you have. There is a sticky guide on it in the "Guides and How-Tos" section.

Hello Dancelover! WI Bucks are a new feature! The important thing to remeber is that they are not real money at, all just like kinzcash. you earn them in multiple ways, one is posting. You can give them to other WI members, or you can buy other things on this site, too. I am going to add a link to this that will explain everything for you. Hope this helps!

If it does not work, look in the guides and how-to section for a sticky on wi bucks

Hi!
WI bucks is a feature that has been recently added to WI, since some members have been obsessed with only post count & rep. WI bucks were created because rep and post count don't show a member's true worth on WI, and how many WI bucks you have is determined by a lot of things you do on WI.

Here's a thread, created by Justin, explaining WI Bucks:
http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...-bucks-479352/

And Miss Gnomie also created a fantastic guide on them, it should answer most of your questions.
http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...ey-how-479553/

Hope this helps!

I don't really see a problem for WI$ yet. But after they start adding things that we can 'buy', I think the whole Wi$ thingie may go downhill from there. But you never know.....

I think they're a great additon. If you don't tell anyone how much you have, or you don't comment on someonelse's amount if they tell you...there is no problem. They really do help younger members out in the long run---Taking out loans, banking..that such.
