I've been debating about whether I want to show my WI Insider Insider badge. On the one hand, I think it is good for those of us who support this forum to show publicly that we do so, because it might encourage others to donate. On the other hand... I don't want those who cannot donate to feel left out.

This is kind of a conundrum for me. Opinions, anyone?

Hmm
What a wise and introspective question!
Here's what I think: Remember the saying "With great power comes great responsibility" , obviously we don't wield anymore power that other members however the badge may be seen in a regarded light, so I think if you're going to display the badge, show off what great people we have on WI and be a WI ambassador of sorts...I think this will encourage others to seek out these members if they questions and help to feel like they are part of a wonderful community. It gives newer members something to look forward to and younger members who have been here a long while a way to feel valued too, once they can use their WI-bucks to purchase subscriptions.

I try to be a WI ambassador, and for the most part, I think I do a good job. I'll be happier when kids can buy their badges with WI bucks, though.

Evil thought:

Maybe I should remove my badge on days when I am feeling snarky.



Muahahahaha!

I'm leaving mine. I considered taking it off and changed my mind.

I think that I will keep mine on, in support of Justin. If it encourages a few more members to join, that would be great.

That's why I've left mine on - more as an "I appreciate and support Justin and Wendy" sort of thing - the negative response of a few folk on WI to the optional subscription really surprised me.

Other similar websites only ask about $10 for a subscription *but* the subscription is not optional - I love how WI made them optional so that kids and those who prefer not can still fully access the site.

ROFL!! I had the same thought about the cart. I was waiting a few days to see if that became a buying option. But hey, it's the simple things that don't occur to us sometimes Justin. Happens to all of us. I was also waiting to see if the system seemed to be operating smoothly for you. I'll be signing up (yearly) by the end of the week.

I've been in a bit of a quandary myself about this one. For now I am proud to be a supporter and I'm proud to show it. I may turn it off some day, but for now I like to show that I appreciate the site and while I'm not trying to show up anyone who can't donate right now, I'm hoping that others see that I am willing to pitch in a little for those who can't so that everyone can keep enjoying it here

Some people have spinnys, or rainbows and I'm in awe of their accomplishments. This is my little accomplishment for now, so I am choosing to show it for the time being
