The only thing I am still a little confused about is the savings thing. I tried to put my money is savings and it didn't go in. It just took away my money, so I took it out and it took away more of my money!

Just curious, why would you think it was dangerous or unsafe?

The savings thing is weird for me too, but it takes 24 hours for it to be deposited into the savings, so it sort of sits in limbo.....

You're right. I mean, if a person wants to tell, that's one thing, but asking is another. Especially bragging about how many you have..

This is a good idea, but I'm confused. Does it have anything to do with reputation, or rep. boxes? Thanks.

I'm sure that many of you are wondering what the new WI$ amount is in everyone's postbits and what it means.

This is a new system that I am pairing with our donations and subscriptions that will be coming online within the next week or two here on WI.

Over the past few months, we have noticed that people have become obsessed with two things on WI -- post count and reputation.

The problem with both is that neither really indicate a member's true worth on Webkinz Insider. We hope that this new system will help reward our best and most active users.

The system calculates (adds and subtracts, depending on the activity) your WI$ based on the following criteria:
  • Usergroup induction
  • Referrals
  • Visits based on usergroup
  • Activity based on usergroup
  • Birthday Present
  • Reputation Given/Received
  • New Thread
  • Thread Ratings
  • Posts (On others and in own)
  • Your thread popularity
  • Profile Popularity
  • PM usage
  • Calendar Usage
  • etc.

At this point, we are still learning the system ourselves and what it is capable of. There are many additions that we can add to WI for users to "spend" their points on and once the donations and subscriptions are in place, I will be evaluating them.

Some of them include:
1) Lottery / raffle drawings, which we may use for our monthly giveaways from Ameriwade.
2) Using your points to purchase temporary membership into our subscription program (coming soon).
3) Living Avatars.
4) Quizzes.
5) vbP3tz
6) Post Thanks

And many others...

This system is very experimental and if we determine that it just isn't working for WI or that it's being abused, we may have to remove it from the forum.

I just wanted to be proactive about this because I'm sure people will be wondering what the points are, how you get them and what they're used for. I hope I've answered the first two questions and as for the third -- we'll have to wait and see!
Good idea! I thought you meant we had to pay for WI! what are living avatars anyway?

Wow! 13 pages since I last sat down. Not sure if this was addressed or not.

I rec'd WI $ from 2 people (thank you ) And they have written a comment. I am not sure exactly what they are referring to though. Is there a way to show which post they clicked on to give the bucks? Like the rep system. I can see what rep was given to me and I can click on the link beside it to show the topic/thread that they liked what I had to say
