I'm thinking of resetting G on the new site to zero for everyone... Up to a point. What do I mean by that?
If you received G for any of the following, your account will *start* with that amount (aggregated):
- Donations to the site
- Errors/problems/etc reported to the site
- Purchased made to/from other people from the Marketplace (Up to today's date [to avoid people trying to get around the problem])
- 50 for every successful user invited to the website
- The initial 15G you got when joining the website
But why are we doing this!?
Let's face it. The economy on these forums has died. If we were to transfer every user's G to the new site, the chances are that the one of two things would happen:
1. We overprice everything and no newbie can ever get anything (like what happens in a lot of MMO's)
2. We keep everything the same and just let the new website's economy suck just as bad
I'm hoping that the list above will be enough of a compromise to those who have worked hard on the things they've earned, to be used to the new site. It's mostly the "post count" G and such that I'm trying to kill off. The intentions are to move away from the idea of gaining G through post counts, and to gain it through other means. That's yet to be determined, however.
