Some sort of bank feature that does NOT give interest would be nice. Just being able to store gold separately would be nice and could help people save up better.

Interest Earning Bank Accounts
An interest earning bank would widen the gap between richer users and not-so-rich users, something we want to avoid. We encourage everyone to earn gold from active participation on Gaia, rather than this type of passive investment. Thus, this is a feature that will not be implemented because it will impact the community negatively.

False. That applies only to interest. A bank feature itself is, according to various staff, on the table, so long as it doesn't grant interest.
I've already given my opinion a while ago on the banking thread.

Please take good care of my cookie. ;w ;

You can fight me on this all you want but don't whine if this gets deleted because it has already been addressed.

To which I direct you to my SF thread. By your interpretation, it would have been deleted ages ago.

It doesn't bother me if you don't think we need a bank feature, but I'd rather debate the niceties in SF proper.

It isn't my interpetation but think what you'd like.

All I can do is inform you of things, it is entirely your prerogative to disregard anything I say simply due to my lacking a colored name.

Have a nice night.

Hmm, what about interest? I think that would be nice, like getting more interest the more money you have. It would encourage me to put money in.

Like, the bank on Neopets XDD

Lmao! I always thought that but never said it. *teehee* But I would love to see a real bank on here! User Image
Mostly because I tend to spend any money I have (real and virtual), so if I cant see it anywhere, I'll think I dont have it, and BAM!, I would save my money, and get those things I've been wanting. whee
Yes, cookies for you.
This would be a valuable edition to Gaia's site, especially now that there are literally hundreds of new items to save up for!
