I know some people will say we earn more xper so its only fair. But come to think of it takes ages to earn the xper for the gift cards etc so I think the 4000 for giftcards and 250/500 xpers points for featuring a question was cool mark was cool.
That killed me when they raised the amazon gc to 5000 xper without notice. I was less than 100 points from getting it. I do like the idea of having your question featured for 500 xper instead.
I do understand, however, that this website is a business and they don't want to give too many of the prizes away. I just wish the heads of GAG explained that when they raised the prices. I hate when things are done without explanation.
ha ha ha ha we have 'days' for everything i. e. everyday we'll be earning 100 Xpers
I think it's just fine the way it is now.
A lot of thought must have gone into this before GAG started awarding Xpers the way they are now. Attracts more people to the site apart from which people also have selecting MHs which was a scarcity earlier :-)
Featuring a question should be something around 400 imho because that's a useful feature. But the rest can stay that high. It's just a symbolic reward. I mean for real? Type 2000 comments.. You earn 15$ faster when begging on the street. It's supposed to be symbolic.
To feature a question it should be lower, but I the the amount for the other rewards fair, I understand the admins raising the number of points required to receive rewards, as the number of users increase causing the demand for rewards to go up.
I'm pretty sure they just raised reward requirements, actually. I'm kind of indifferent... it sucks how high the Amazon giftcard has gotten, but oh well... I guess if people are willing to spend the time racking up Xper then the Admins can set whatever costs they want accordingly.
