I recently purchased my avatar for 30 GG. Now, I don't have to tell you that it's hard to get 30 GG. Having accumulated a little bit more, I thought I'd check how much would an Ubergeek badge cost... imagine my surprise when I discovered that the price is 50 GG! And that the avatar now also costs 50 GG! Is that correct? And if I may ask, why the increase? Because, in my humble opinion, GG is scarce enough as it is, so I'm wondering what's the reasoning behind the increase. zombie

Actually, an ubergeekbadge costs 100, because you need to get a regular geekbadge at cost 50 first before you upgrade to uber for another 50.

There has not been any increase. Prices have been the same for years:
avatar = 30 GG
geekbadge = 50 GG
übergeekbadge = geekbadge + 50 GG
microbadges (new) = 15 GG each

So now we have the definitive version of how to spend GG, is there a corresponding list of how to *earn* it?
Apart from the obvious 'charity' i.e. people redistributing the stuff, how much do you get for doing what in BGG?
I don't want to sound mercenary - just interested

My bad... somewhere in my brain, "Avatar" got mixed with "Geekbadge". But I'm all better now, please, no need to call the funny farm... in fact, nothing to see here, move along... blush
