This could probably use a poll, but I have no idea how to do it.

But I'm guessing it may be done soon by a smarter person than I. whistle

But would you pay it?

Absolutely. But I've been around long enough that I've got more GG than I really know what to do with.

New users wouldn't be able to thumb at all though so it's not really viable.

Tickmanfan would go bankrupt.

That would have some serious repercussions for the BGG economy! You should run that idea by some analysts.

Yes, but that is mainly due to my massive amount of geek gold, earned through clever credit default swap trading and my traffic in collateralized debt obligations in the heady days of 2007, when the Geek Gold flowed freely.

Seriously, though, I'd still thumb, because, like Chapel, I don't tend to thumb unless I really like something. I have a pretty high tip to thumb ratio anyway, I think.

And speaking of ticketmanfan being broke, I think he already is--he must have to replace his mice at least twice a month with all the clicking he does--he's probably worse on mice than anybody since everybody stopped playing Diablo.

I would definitely thumb for .01 gg. I don't use that stuff for hardly anything and it keeps piling up. It'd be nice to feel like I was putting it to some sort of use.

Sure. My thumbing would have cost me ~2700 GG. I tipped over twice that last year.

Though, I am glad thumbs don't cost because I was able to tip and donate that gold instead.

Is this Geekpenny going to the thumb receiver? Or is it a thumb transaction fee regulated by the Geek Gaming Commission?

Yes I would, but less frequently. Possibly much less frequently.

I don't think it would be a good idea, however. New folks need to be able to thumb things too, and save up for their avatars and such!
