Do you believe we should be able to transfer remaining reedemable points to other GAGers?

I didn’t mind much bout Amazon Gift Card’s minimum amount of Xper being upgraded (knew it’d happen sooner or l8r)... but wot’s most painful’s da amount of remaining redeemable points.

I mean I have 35346 remainin points…and technically I can redeem 14k/month, instead of redeem ‘em altogether. So I wanna get rid of em in 1 way or another u know… :(

So I believe it’d b nice 2 transfer some of yer points 2 other GAGers…. so everyone would b pleased :D

  • Nice idea on paper but no.

    That would cause either 1) the XPer price for the prizes to go up again at a sooner rate, and 2) some of the prizes (especially the Amazon card ), to be discontinued entirely.

    Why? Because transferable XPer points between users = more redeemed prizes = higher costs for the website owners = adjustments numbered above will occur

    ----

    This website is a business, not a charity. So rules and trends of economic shall apply here. Sorry if most users don't understand that and want to emotionally spaz all over the site about taking longer to get free shit.

  • The only way you could do this is by contacting an admin and suggesting this. There'd obviously have to be some caps/limits but it'd be a nice way to thank someone for doing something for you. :) I like this idea.

    Does your level still stay the same though when you redeem Xper?

    • yer Xper level wouldn't b affected

  • This would not work and defeat the point of the xper system altogether. The point is that YOU work for the xper YOU receive and that's that. If you give it to other people, then you'll boost their xper levels and possibly give them titles that they technically didn't rightfully earn, since they didn't earn the xper on their own. Plus, if this system became a thing, then people would start begging each other for xper, or try to abuse the system. There are many ways you could abuse it, possibly by creating spam accounts that would automatically transfer the xper to their main. You could also start using the xper as a cash thing, like someone who gives good advice could start asking people to give them 5 more xper for every personal advice they give in a PM or whatever.
    This would only give the mods and admins WAY more work, like having to catch spammers and other people who would abuse the system just to boost their xper status or to receive more gift cards in a shorter amount of time. So while the idea is cute in theory, there's no fucking way it would work for real haha.

    • yer total Xper amount won't change... only da redeemable one. Like if someone has 165k Xper in total, and 10k redeemable Xper, and then someone gives him 10k he won't go 175k... but he's redeemable amount will go 20k and only

    • oh well, i'm gonna have a poll bout it 2morrow,... how GAGers feel bout non-cleared unredeemed Xper counter :p ;)

    • I'm sure most GaGers are for it since all they care about is that gift card. But I'm 100% sure the admins and mods are completely against it. Like I said, it would be tricky to develop a system like that, and a lot of people would most likely end up abusing it one way or another. GaG just raised the xper cost of a gift card from 5k to 7k. Why do you think that? Because they don't want people to cash in gift cards as regularly. They don't want to lose more money than necessary. If people started giving each other xper they don't need left and right, and if people started creating spam accounts that could go under the radars of mods and admins, then GaG would have to give out more money again. Which defeats the purpose of the gift card xper raise. So at that point they would either get rid of the system, or they would raise the cost to like 10k or something ridiculous like that.

  • What an awesome thought! That would be pretty nice to be able to do something like this. Until then, can you not redeem your points here, get your email with the code, but instead of applying it to your Amazon account, just send someone a private message to tell someone the code of the gift card they redeemed so they can claim it?

    What would be nicer is if they could be pooled together and given to charity. I wish GaG had a charity option for other countries as I would give my xper to them instead.

  • Like any system there will be those who exploit it. Like as silly as it sounds, I'm sure there is some crazed person out there who wanted the top rank and would be willing to try to get as much XP from anyone as much as possible to get it. So you'd have some #1 GAG person as the top ranking person who didn't truly gain the XP necessary to be up there.

    • a little while ago it was 5k, but when rewards started it was 2k only

    • Wow that's a lot I only average maybe 40 points a day how do you do that?

    • I work from home so every so often I take a 10 min break and answer a few questions to clear my head and then in the evening have TV on and peruse GaG - I tend to favour questions that need short answers.

    • i answer long ones often lately that's y i'm left behind :p

  • No, and there are a few reasons behind this; the first is that under-the-table agreements can be made and untraced, the second is that it creates a major coding problem, and the third is that if one were to bother with such a system the XPER reward base system would be thrown into jeopardy because you'd make more kissing one ass in a day than you would posting which would lower incentive for madmen like yourself.
