If you add the comma into the amount it will only move 30...

Since there are so many helpful guides on here, usually my question can be answered without creating a thread.

I've noticed that a huge factor in how many WI bucks a user has is how many threads created by the user. Just because a person creates a thread doesn't mean the thread is helpful. A user could create a hundred new threads that only receive a few replies on them, and that would give them a lot of WI bucks.

I don't really care how few bucks I have, but you have been hinting at a lot of cool new features we can buy using our bucks, and honestly I don't think I'd have enough to participate in any of them. I am just wondering what I should be doing to be a more helpful and active member, since apparently I am not one according to this new system.
Oh you are very active and helpful, Sydney.

This system needs tweaking, and I am certain that Justin will tweak it over time.

Part of the calculation is not just the starting of new threads, but also how popular those threads are. So just spamming the forum with threads will not give you lots of WI bucks. But having threads that people view over and over and participate in... That will.

I am pretty certain that the reason my total is high is that my guide Inside, Outside, Underwater gets lots of views. (It accounts by itself for two of my green rep boxes.)

I think that there needs to be an award for non-fluff posting... For always having posts that are meaningful and high in content, like yours. I don't know how to implement it yet, but I do know that you deserve all the rep and kudos that I can give you.

Consider yourself a valued and important member of WI, because I know it is not just me that feels that way about you.

Hi Justin,

I think this is a great idea. I am still a little confused about how it all works but like everyone else I will figure it out as I go along. I just hope I am doing enough to earn the WI bucks.

Thanks Flicka

The system registers the length of the post, not the content. Each post is worth 4-10$ depending on length. The DCT chatters will be racking up the 4-6$/post for all their chatting/spamming posts.

This post will get the same amount of $$ that my post of the word 'cat' 25 times got.

Hi Hmm. Thank you for your kind remarks.

Your thread is a perfect example of a thread that deserves (and receives) a lot of WI bucks.

I am talking about users who create lots of tiny threads, because even though they may not be popular a lot of tiny threads will add up to a lot of WI bucks.

Also, I'm not sure why usergroups are being treated differently...just because I am a gift guru does not mean I contribute more to WI than my non-gifted friends. They contribute in equally helpful ways, and their posts should deserve the same treatment as mine.

Anyway, those are just my thoughts...I look forward to the new features you have planned Justin. I think you are planning very exciting things.

Ooh... I did not know that.

So my ability to ramble on and on earns me money? Wait until my husband hears that!

Justin, I have a question .... It's mainly about this:::
Posts - on your threads & else where!

What this means:
When you post on your own thread, you will receive some "bucks" for participating in the community. You will also receive bucks for posting comments on other people's threads as well. - It should be noted that "fluff" or copy & pasted messages may result in a loss of bucks as well.

Some of the greeters in the 'Hi, My name is Joe' section DO use the same message to welcome people. Is this gonna keep them from posting those messages now??
