Welcome to Gaia! ::

I was wondering if we could have the option to tip our own posts? I don't think it makes any sense to have it grayed out, especially since other people can do it. It would give us the ability to make ourselves known because people will see that we have tipped our own posts and we have a lot of money. And there should also be an option that when you get a lot of tips that you get displayed on the first page.

Okay. Thank you.

...25g is not a lot of money...if you want to pat yourself on the back...well...you can always..uh...quote yourself....and say..."I agree with this post ^".....?

It doesn't make sense to tip yourself though because you're essentially...giving...gold....to yourself...using...your.....own...gold.......

That's kind of redundant, isn't it?

You tip yourself your own gold to get the 25g back.
That's kind of pointless.

And you 'make yourself known' by posting around,
add to the community. Tipping yourself is
not going to do that...

No.

Tipping doesn't make you famous.

            So wait, if you tip your own post a s**t load of times, your post gets bumped up to the first page?

            I don't even see how they could code that to begin with. Even if they could, that would be horrible, The pages would all be mixed up and chaotic because people are tipping their own post thousands of times and posts would be moving to the first page all the time.

            If you wanna toot your own horn, you're free to do so already. But I don't think they need to change a feature so that you can do it.

But it's not your own gold. It belongs to Gaia.

When you tip someone it uses your own gold...try it out. Watch your gold count go down by 25g after tipping someone and refreshing the page to see your new gold count.

Incorrect. The gold comes from your account.

I don't think this self-congratulatory feature is needed.

Uh, being able to tip your own posts wouldn't prove that you're rich, cause you're just giving the money to yourself.

...I don't understand why. You're giving yourself gold you already have. You're neither gaining nor losing anything by this method.

I mean the gold doesn't belong to you. You don't own it. Gaia owns it.

So if you tip your post, the gold comes from your account but it actually belongs to Gaia, so it won't matter.
