WI's Gift Exchange Info
What is the Gift Exchange program?
WI's Gift Exchange program was set up so members of WI could trade safely in a relaxed environment.
In the "GE" you use the WIGEV to value your items and trade fairly with other gifted members of WI.
How do I get into the GE?
To get into the Gift Exchange program, you must apply for a spot. You can apply for a spot at .
You must fit all the requirements stated there to become gifted, and even then your application may not be accepted. There is not a time limit on how long you will have to wait for an admin to get to your post.
So I got accepted, now what?
Once you have been accepted, you won't become a "gifted" member right away. You'll be a gift trainee, also known as a "GT". GTs are members new to the trading process, and instead of going straight into the GE, they go to the training section, also known as the "TS".
In the TS, you will only be able to trade with other GTs and gift coaches. Gift coaches are adults that will help GTs learn how the gift exchange process works. Each GT will be assigned a certain "GC".
I've now been a GT for awhile, when will I become gifted?
Many members believe that becoming gifted is based upon the amount of "feedback" you have. This is not true. Becoming gifted is based upon how well you understand the gifting process.
So if you are certainly ready to become gifted, you will be asked. The time of becoming gifted varies between members.
Yay, I've become gifted! It's a bit scary, though, what do I do?
You have probably now noticed how large the GE is compared to the TS! Well, it's always a bit overwhelming at first, but don't worry it slows down.
When you first become gifted, it may be tempting to make a GE right away. This is perfectly acceptable, however, this can result in a huge overload of offers at your new GE. Other members in the GE are very kind and love to welcome the newly gifted, so you will usually get a large outcome of offers for the first few days.
If the overload of offers doesn't sound like your cup of tea, you may want to explore the GE a bit, and see what you can find. Maybe offer on some items at other GEs, there isn't a huge rush in making your GE. Some members NEVER make a GE!
OK, so I've been hearing about this gift guru stuff around the GE, what's that?
A gift guru, also known as a "GG", is a formally gifted member who showed great excellence in trading, and applied to be a GG. Gift gurus must have been in the GE for at least a month, have 50 unique positive feedback points (your TS feedback points do not count), have 100% feedback score, and have showed great trading behavior.
Now that I know what a GG is, I want to be one! How can I accomplish this?
If you fit all the requirements I stated above, go  thread and apply. Just like when you became a GT, even if you fit all the requirements this does not mean you will be accepted for sure.
I found out that some GGs are chosen to be the GCs, how do I get chosen?
To be a Gift Coach here on WI you have to be an adult, a Gifted Guru in good standing and be a good role model on our other forums as well...but ultimately our Admins make all final decisions on Gift Coaching positions!
