I've decided that I want an Ubergeek Badge...bad.

I'm not asking anybody to give me geekgold for free and this isn't one of those sad pleas for handouts, so please, do not tip this thread.

Instead, I intend to try to find clever and creative ways to garner the required 100 gg to achieve my goal.

This thread will serve as a sort of blog about my progress if anybody's interested in reading it. Come along for the journey if you'd like!

Account Status: 33.14 gg

Today, my quest begins.

With the new site revamp and geekgold auctions on the front page, I've been taking notice of all the interesting things people post for auction.

I decided to get creative with a couple of my own which can be found here:

and here:

(This item was kindly furnished by RobPlusPlus)

The first already has 3 bids! Fingers crossed!

I also sold a few items for GG at auction before I realized how much less people are willing to exchange for a game than they are for cash. You can sell a game AND pay for shipping yourself and get about as much GG as you can for spending ten bucks (and no shipping) on a PayPal xfer. You can have your UberBadge for about six bucks right now if you want to.

Geez, that sort of misses the point of the whole "Creative" thing, now doesn't it.

Well, I can't say I'm disappointed with the results so far.

Next auction is up here:
