Okay... You're right.

There is a real cost.

Sorry Justin, I withdraw my comment about the fees. We are buying real services with the virtual cash, so having the fees makes sense.

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.
Your gift status is only taken away if you do something that violates the rules you agreed to when you became gifted. Many have GEs that rarely get visited, many others don't even have one of their own at all (visit others to do trades).

The giving rep is different than giving them WI$. Rep is still free to give to others. The giving people WI$ is maybe like if you were 500 short of being able to do the subscription, and I was your friend + wanted to help you get it I'd gift some of my $$ to you

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.

Hmm
LOL... It kinda messes with the economy of things, but I'll think about it. I suppose I could alter the database and give the WI central account a few billion to hold us over for awhile?

You don't have to give them any WI$. Giving them rep also gives them WI$ from the system account, giving them WI$ is an extra something if you would like to.

Yep, and there's supposed to be an economy attached to it, so the $$ is supposed to go into the WI central account for awarding for reps, posts, etc. Though I think I can just "make money appear" if I need to. As far as using WI$ for extra entries into the prize donations, that doesn't cost us any real $$, though using the WI$ for subscriptions would.

Since your's was today, it might have been in the original amount since the WI$ thing started today.
