I like the idea of a reward in itself, but I think that money- and using that money for perks- is a bit off. I go on another site where you can join for free, but you can't do a lot of things without a subscription. I've also been to forums with so many add-ons, I don't consider them so much "forums" as "hives". I know this sounds unrceptive to change, but I like WI the way it has been for the past almost two years, as a forum and news site. I fear that with the addition of money, pets, subscriptions, and banks, WI will become a completely different place from the forum I joined back in 2007.

Whether or not that change is for the better, it's not my decision, but thanks for letting me give my input
i was actually sort of thinking the same thing

it makes everything so complicated...i like WI being a simple, fun place. some younger members are just totally helpless, and it could take a while for everyone to understand. there is also something about the whole concept i don't like...and if the prizes become so good everyone wants them, then there could be an obession over the bucks(making helpful post for $$$ and rep...*shudders* LOL). i totally agree withAlncor...this is a huge change, and in my mind, WI is already becoming a new place, on the first day. i know my opinion is only one in probably what is a sea of support, but thanks for letting me have my say

I'm still curious about how this whole thing works.

Hmm

HAHAHA Boo-boo Head.. LOL

It's understandable that not everything works...it's nice to try new things. Do you mind if I pm you about something? I have a concern I don't want to post in the open forum or on profile. Let me know if you have a moment.

Funsilly,

I will state this. Your poem was one of the few posts about the rules that my daughter liked. She thought your poem was "the most beautiful poem she had read." So big hugs to you for trying to greet members and make WI a better place.

Just add the personal greetings too, and your poems will be even more warm and welcoming.

Thanks for being part of WI.

Big hugs to you

So if you're at the highest rank you can get, would you still get WI bucks for moving up because there weren't WI bucks before?

I think after the initial fury is over people won't put so much focus on it. For myself, I am going to continue to do things the way I always have. I was here when the rep boxes were taken away, and still here when they came back. It hasn't changed the way I do things. I post when I feel I have something worthwhile to add - not 'just because'. Post count hasn't ever played a huge role in how or where I post. I come here to obtain newz, helpful hints and for the friendly banter. I'll continue to come with or without Rep or WI Bucks. I throughly enjoy and appreciate the site as is
