I've made some updates to the Tip Jar code - it's now embedded in the Thumb recommendations system. Click the icon and then you can select your value. If you wish to send a tip the "old" way - select "Other Amount" and you can fill out whatever you want.


Tip jars have been added to geeklist items and comments as well.

Thank you to all with the suggestion to do the "quick tip" I made some modifications obviously - but I think the effect is the same.

This is a test post for the new system. To check out how it's working, tip me. If you want to really, really test the system, tip me a lot.

Your cooperation is appreciated.

(Note: Not a real test for the new system. Do not, repeat, do not tip me.)

Can a tip with this system be automatically accompanied by a thumbs up? Please?

Can't you see them in your GG statistics?

Yeah, that's what I thought I was doing, and I wound up giving a tip to someone.

I just checked on the Web Developer Toolbar, and it is giving an error -

"GeekGoldTip is not defined"

FWIW

There should be a question mark that you can click to see tippers. I'll make sure it's turned on for "articles"

Firefox 1.5 on XP Pro does nothing. Javascript console says "Error: GeekGoldTip is not defined, Line: 1".

Edit: Refreshing page fixed it.

Any improvement in the tipping system is a great thing because it brings attention to the need for tips in general.

Please show your appreciation by remembering to tip your friendly local file uploader for those very useful game aids that you downloaded. Unlike sessions and reviews, their GG gains are purely based on our generosity. So be generous!

Firefox 1.5.0.11 doesn't do anything now, though it did half an hour ago.

I'm on Firefox 2.0.0.3 as well and clicking the GG tip brings up Windows Media Player and plays Aaron Tippin songs.

I'm guessing people that are having problems don't have the new Javascript changes that I made. If you hold down shift while pressing reload you should get a new version of that file. Or clear your cache and refresh the page.

This is great, but I'm on board with Lajos here. Getting rid of the animation on the coin will make it less distracting.

It seems Aldie replaced within seconds after my post... He's quick!

Maybe the icon should be a little bigger.
Now: (14 pixels)
Alternatively: (16 pixels)
Or: (15 pixels)

What do you think?

I agree. It seems a little tiny now.

Edit: Okay, Aldie; I personally blame you for the GG tipping spree I just went on. I'll never be able to afford an avatar now.

It's a fine idea but the interface is officially now too crowded with various information/icons and the returns are now diminishing
