I totally understand there will be bugs to work out. I will keep watching to see how this pans out
You are correct and I've updated that for GG's. There are no WI$ cost for GG's to send PMs

If people were obsessed with reputation and post count, what is going to happen when they start comparing cash net worth on WI?

I don't think I am anymore valuable than some of the lil' kinz on this forum, no matter what our numbers say.

Reputation and post count have never obsessed me. Post count is pretty meaningless... And reputation is really just another communication tool. I love seeing the comments that come when people rep one of my posts, but the actual number of green boxes that I have has never been something I really cared about.

I am just here to have fun, and to help others have fun too. I am really worried about this concept of attaching a cash value to our contributions.

But is there a max we can move per day? I wanted to move 100k over, but it said I did not have enough to do that. I was able to move 50k over, but it won't let me move the rest.

Thanks for answering so quick Justin I guess multiple windows open makes tracking how it works a little harder, lol. Thanks for doing all this stuff to make WI a better place to be (not that it isn't amazing already )

This sounds interesting. I'm interested to see how this works out over the next couple of weeks.

I think I read that it will cost money to send a PM....is this correct? Does is also cost money to send a voicemail? Just wondering.

I thought of this as well and we will monitor the situation closely. The nice thing about this is that people can transfer into their savings accounts and only the amount in your checking will be displayed to others. This is more of a reward system and while post counts and reputation counts constantly go up, there is no reward tied to any of them. The nice thing is that (and this is something I'm planning to do) people can spend this WI$ for things on WI. For example, and I think this is the proper WI$ amount, but WI$50,000 will buy you a month's membership in our premium subscriber plan--which will have no ads, more PM space, amongst other things. What I wanted to do is have something that actually gives something to those who really are invested into WI.

Perhaps you are right, we may need to hide the $ amounts from everyone else, which is very easy for me to do and then people will still be able to use the WI$ to "buy" things on WI without the "I have more WI$ than you" mentality.

Not a max per day... The max GG's can put in is 50k, my mistake.
