    Share the wealth?

    I was wondering if you goblins spread the wealth out to your server? Over the past couple weeks I have been giving out gold to lowbies that ask. Usually I will see lowbies in trade asking for 5-20g for training. Just last night I gave a level 11 five .

    I look at it as good PR for me. It is fun.

    I do the same thing.. in exchange for their first born

    Seriously, I give a ton away to my guild. Cut gems, enchants, mats for leveling. I gave our GM a chopper for their often under-appreciated role (they do so much more that your average GM). I'll send whispers to people that are obviously new and looking for information or items and i'll give them to them without cost. This also prevents them having to deal with the dreaded trolls that have become so abundant in trade chat.

    I think you'll find that most people in this community give something back in one form or another their communities.

    Anybody who asks me for anything less than 1 gold gets 10 gold from me. They have to be nice, and not all lolz about it. That's how I go about paying it forward. For guildies, I'll usually craft them some sweet jewelry or cut them their gems. Some want to pay me for it, but I just let them give w/e they want. 500g for a 3k mats cost necklace is generous - and the recipient gets to enjoy it without feeling like they owe me or anything.

    (that's a joke, eh)

    I've had a guy offer to advertise my s in exchange for 1.5G per card. I didn't really need him to do it, and sales haven't really boosted, but I've just posted them and then logged into another alt, so it saves me time.

    I think I'm going to give him the 2K he needs for his epic flying tonight as a generous advance because he seems like a nice guy.

    If you help people out, it WILL come back, and I have way more gold than I need, so I've really softened up on this lately.

    I'll be generous with guildies, and sometimes friends, but you gotta be careful or they start feeling entitled to a piece of your wealth. I usually give away mats to guildies, over pay for stuff i have to buy off guildies, i'm giving away another hog when we down nef etc

    I'll give my friends anything they want. For everyone else i'll take their last copper and their shirt off their back if i get a chance.

    yea, guildies are something entirely different in my opinion, my current guild is app or friend invite only, and i give them enchants, gems, etc free of charge, and when im running around on lower level alts and do something like kill steal without paying attention.. etc.. i'll often gift.. but as for the random /2, /s, /y give me 5 gold... they get nothing

    Ah I must say this is rather a nice thread ^.^

    The guild I'm in really isn't that wonderful. I'm not very attached to any of them, but I have 2 RL friends who I play wow with and I generally try be as generous as possible (I give them all my truegold transmutes for free, chaos orbs, any glyphs that they want for alts if I have them in my glyph stock, etc).

    But I also don't spoon feed them. They know I work hard for my gold and when ever they need help I do my best to direct them to useful information or threads where they can learn. Sometimes if I find a nice little trick to make gold from I let them know about it and give them a chance to make gold from it before I enter that market etc.

    In terms of begging, it really depends on how I feel but usually I try again to teach them how to make gold rather than simply giving them gold. If someone is crafting me something though and they have been extremely friendly then I give them a very generous tip, etc.
    If someone makes a helpful post or useful thread, be sure to let them know by giving +reputation. Spread the love!

    The other day a guildy got hacked and emptied the gem tab of our g-bank. I was feeling generous, so I cut a couple of every rare cut I know and threw them in there. When I got the new Int meta I threw a few of those in there too.

    I spend the most gold on my g/f though. I've power-leveled numerous professions for her, although that usually comes with the added benefit of having her available to craft/transmute/etc things for me.
