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?

Thank you for explaining. Is the 'birthday present' WI$ or a present on ?

For the most part, yes. Also, with "birthday presents", the system will give you a present from the WI central account on your birthday.

Okay, since the whole process is automated, and the money virtual, and WI can be its own mint, why bother to have the fee? Can't WI just automatically generate the money needed for these items?

I really don't think you have to worry about runaway inflation or the other problems that tend to happen when Governments print too much cash...

I think the fees should be abolished. Just make it easier to give.

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?

Hmm
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
