A young BGG user named Xane Sun has just received my 1000th GeekGold tip...

...for an article entitled "Is there no room for younger players in the gaming community?"

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/388306

I can't think of a more appropriate place to spend some of my ill-gotten gains! We must encourage young players to enter the board game hobby.

To me a GeekGold tip is like a "second thumb" when good contributions are posted on BGG.

Providing this geekgold to an enthusiastic young gamer was a pleasure.

I tipped him 30.00 for an avatar. Hope he will not spend it for drugs.

Well, I had over 70 for months now, but already owning avatar, Überbadge and all this, owning some microbadges changing sometimes to and fro, what to do with that?

Welcome a newbie!

Good stuff, Pete.

Pete also sent me a board game free of charge a while back.

Excluding admins I think Robert (GROGnads) is in second fifth-ish place for tips given at 669.67 GG

Maybe someday I'll get to 1000 GG tipped; I'm 37.636% the way there!

Phew - never realized there is a "competition" or "ranking" - wise. I gave 602 tipps, but you always have to consider that users not only give tipps "privately", but also collect them for competitions and give it again to the winners ... (think about gamephotos` "Picture picks", he spent 1909 tipps!).

Aldie is the #1 tipper... he gives away thousands of microbadges every December.

No competition here... just celebrating a milestone in my BGG experience.

My next goal: upload 1000 game images.

I also don't believe it's a competition, but if it were, what better than a contest to see who can give away the most stuff?

I didn`t want to criticize that - and yes, it is always fun to see what others are doing concerning "great submissions" or - wise.

And of course, I have my own goals in front: 10.000 thumbsup (now 9540) and submit only photos being so good, that they lift my "average" thumbing for my images up to ten (now 8.56).

Thanks

BTW, almost two years ago, I started a thread about sharing, shortly after the possibility was created to give the "pennies":

Shouldn't you be playing a game with me instead of wasting time on the Internet?

On the BGGBlackMarket. I believe a dime bag is currently going for 125

Unauthorized reproductions are big on the BGGBM as well. I just saw some dude selling a totally realistic looking Space Hulk with both expansions, plus the Space Hulk Campaigns for something like 250 , it's crazy.

Wow, I'm #12 on the geek tip list!?

Oh, I know what happened I used the tip mechanism to send payment for a few auctions when I couldn't locate the proper payment link.

I have tipped a few GG though. I remember that I almost voluntarily bankrupted my self with this geeklist http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/28525 when Pete was using a 1GG tip to signify correct answers, and I decided to jump on board...

I didn't realize that there was competition to being the biggest tip-giver. What can I do to help out in this endeavor? Well, as my small contribution, I am open to receiving any and all tips. I will make sure to sing the praises of generous tippers far and wide.

An ash I know, Yggdrasil its name. With water white is the great tree wet; thence come the dews that fall in the dales. Green by Urth's well does it ever grow.

Thinly veiled GG auctions for games like...
