the guide would be a big help to those who would want to use the wi$ for helping to defray the cost of a premium subscription or having a chance at a game or something. and to know what you get or lose would help them know what they need to be able to participate.
I agree wiht you. I dont want this to be a thread where people say I have so many.....how many do you have......

Yes, I have recommended checking MissGnomie's guide out as well. It definitely helped me in understanding what is going on. LOL

yeah, this one time i got "the PM" because i started talking to a newer member who was confused with tradiing on WI and in the clubhouse, and apperently i strayed a little to far into "trade talk" territory all it was was just a friendly reminder...it took a while to recover from that one LOL!

This is precisely what I think will happen; the WI Bucks will have the opposite effect desired. I agree completely with the earlier post (sorry I don't remember where it was to quote it) that called message boards with post-to-gain systems for stuff like "living avatars," etc. "hives." As I understand it, Gaia online is such a site, and I've never wanted to be a part of it because it fuels unnecessary competition among members.

Edit: This was the post I wanted to quote:

I understand the system, but I personally think that people should be kind and post, and give rep and rate threads to be good members on their own, without reward.

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 hoping to read through most of this thread before going into WW to do my dailys, but the post count on this thread has gone up over 100 in just a few minutes. I'll have to keep coming back until I can get it all read.

There have been a lot of good questions and informative answers. I look forward to seeing how it all works out once it gets going.

I think it is actually a good idea to give more points to GG's, etc. For the most part, they have been around and involved more, and are going to post better information than a newbie. I would love to see some kind of deduction for "fluff" posts, that don't contribute anything and just take up space and make it harder to read through a thread.

Thanks Justin for trying to give something to WI users, especially the young ones that don't have money to spend, as you pointed out.
