Oh, I have a question about that fee though. Is that a system related one, to account for the tech-related work to do all the gifting fo WI$, or is it just an arbitrary fee ? Cause I just wanna understand what that fee is for Ya know, to explain to others people count on me to explain new stuff amongst my friends sometimes
The fee seems a little silly to me as well, Justin. Is there any way to automate the transfers to reduce staff time in the process, and make it easier for us to give?
Okay... So there are advantages in this system to being a GG rather than a lil' kinz, and posting on other people's threads gives you more points than posting in your own.
I am not sure that I like having GGs automatically earn more WI bucks for activity than lil'kinz. Getting gifted is hard on WI, but once you become gifted, it really only takes time to become a GG. I also am not sure that it is needed to attach ANOTHER privilege to gifted status. The Gifteds already have the main privileges of being able to trade, and for being able to host contests in the Galore forum, and those make sense. You have to prove yourself before we trust you trading and with sending out expensive gifts in contests.
I don't think it makes sense though to automatically reward GGs and Gifteds more for their forum activity. So many of the posts that gifted members make is just for trading, which really does not improve WI as a whole. There are lots of wonderful members out there who are Webkinz who contribute to WI as a whole. Shouldn't we be valuing their contributions equally?
I totally agree! I have considered becoming a gift trainee, but I really don't have the time or money to buy all the trading cards, pet of the months, lip gloss and other stuff you need to have a decent thread (It was my understanding that if your gift thread wasn't used enough you could get your gift status taken away right?) I also can't go onto the Webkinz World trading room everyday looking for lava lamps and hockey furniture (Lol). I think it's great that people do this and enjoy it, but I don't think their posts should be worth more than others who come on here just to make new friends and to cheer up and chill out with the ones they already have. I also think if you're going to charge for PM's, then you should charge everybody. It's like having to pay a tax for your privacy.
I also don't like putting a dollar value on a thank you to someone whose helped me out. If I only give them $10 because I don't have a lot of money, am I cheap? I think it's a good idea in some ways, but it may cause some unexpected problems in others.
Well I was thinking for the fee was a little bit silly, but now that I'm thinking about it the fees are making more + more sense. Cause for each user that uses their WI$ to pay for subscriptions, etc., WI is losing ad income, correct ? And if we had a contest that we use our WI$ on w/ prize donations from Ameriwade, that's costing the owner real $$ too
