It sounds like a great idea but what are supposed to donate to? Everybody's money says GIVE, and mine says CHECK. Am I supposed to put my dollars in savings instead of checking. Move over sunnyseed...I'm confuzzled too!

Can we get a Q&A thread about this stuff?
Ya I dunno about some of that stuff either, but I'm sure there'll be a guide soon enough for all that

I think reason why yours says give + everyone else says check is cause you click it to CHECK your own balance of WI$

The GIVE is there cause it seems to me we can give some of our WI$ to others if we choose to do so

I am sure it will be a work in progress, adjusting the amount you get for posting and for creating new threads. I think we can find a middle-ground where those reminder threads won't earn many points, but a helpful thread will.

You also earn different amounts of WI$ for posting on one of your own threads and for posting on someone else's.

You get points for starting new threads, for having your threads rated and for rating other's threads.
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?

Savings earns interest.

I think this'll be very interesting but has a potential for A LOT of fun.
But sno, if it cost us something to give out reps, we might not hand them out so freely. I am not 100% in favor of the gift fee, but it will make me 100% about giving $$ to someone since it costs me a little to do so. It will cut down on the spamming of the $$.

Wow - Everytime I click, something has changed with WI$ lol.

I do agree that only non-fluff posts should count as $$, and that the $$ should be hidden.

I do have one question - what are birthday presents?
