There is always going to be someone or another OUT to obtain this the easiest and quickest 'method' for which they can garner 'coins', myself included on this 'aspect' as well, although I just turn around and give that away FREELY when I can afford to. What I propose is for anyone that has some "pet project" of which they'd like yet another to construct anything on this, to include 'critiques' and the like, or actual 'components', "files", etc., then POST here about such and what amount of bag that you were offering on it thus. Anyone ELSE of a like-mind-set can contribute into that if they'd like to then SEE it completed, and award the "reward" to whomever earns it with their accepted 'design'. Years ago, then on BGG we had the means to where some REQUEST were created with at times, that included a HEFTY amount for on receipt with an 'item' once it were "accepted", and it was an early incentive to locate some particular matter for these persons in order to accumulate bag much quicker. Granted, outright "Gifts" with bag are perfectly acceptable too, while I shall hope to goad and begin to have the others with massive quantities "piled nigh to the skye" on helping out yet one another newer BGG folk in this regard. I'll provide an example here:

[INQUIRY]~ BGG 'veteran': "does it PLAY like RISK?" AWARD =
[ANSWER]~ BBG 'n00bz': "Tic-Tac-Toe-Teat? 'udder nonsense'!"
?????
PROFIT!

[PROJECT]~ BGG 'veteran': FIND something that you FINALLY 'got' from a GROGnads "post" AWARD =
[CONCLUSION]~ BBG 'n00bz': INDETERMINED
¿¿¿¿¿
ANTIPROFIT!

"please deposit 2 more 'quarters' to try your LUCK again, and TRY to obtain a better 'grip'! this time"

THIS is your "brain" on BGG:
any other question? "I inquired inquisitively intrigued incessantly introspectively..."
GET "busier!"

I frequently 'get' the reassurance that, no, I am not colorblind. cool

(And yes, I think this is an excellent, er, excellent idea!)

Inguiring "why" about GROGnads is like asking after a tornado. They are both forces of nature that cannot always be tracked in comfort. However, once seen and appreciated, you will forever be chasing them both, hoping for a closer glimpse so that one day, hopefully, you might see through to the calm center and, somehow, understand.

Interesting words, Grognads. Wise as always, 0.05 tip for your effort.

I'm currently 0.62 away from my uber geekbage. You're welcome to return the favor.

I think we've just demonstrated that the quickest way to mine Geek Gold is to shamelessly beg for it. Of course, the next question is: "What is the best way to mine Geek Gold with dignity?"

Overtext is really cool. The best 100 GG I've ever spent.

How about awarding GG by merit? One of the things I have loved most about this site - is that BGG'ers literally rush to aid one another... How about a blind donation to everyone who bid in the recent Cici auction? (Especially those that bid and didn't win a prize - but won because they tried.)

I generally become distracted by the artistic quality of Grogs posts and frequently forget there's a post to read!

I think Grogs should take it to the next level and start posting to the forums in text-based stereograms.

You know how, at first, you completely do not understand anything Grog says and then you suddenly start being able to read it and somehow it does make sense?

Well I think I have just passed through that second phase and onto the next level, where I completely don't understand Grog at all. Again.

It is like phase one, but differs in that I have the knowledge that it is possible to understand Grog, but that I have lost that understanding.

I'd be willing to work on a Grog-to-English translator.

No guarantees, though.

My Babelfish still has a hangover from the long weekend, so I'm not sure if this even has anything to do with Grog's proposal, but ...

I'd swear when I first came to the 'Geek, there was some kind of list of "commissions" people would offer GG for ... usually files, but sometimes other things. (For example, someone might offer 5 gg for a player aid for Game X, or a translation of Game Y, or even a session report of Game Z.) Did I make this up? Is this remotely like what we're talking about?
