So I kind of want to try a premium membership for a little while and am toying around with the idea of offering some pieces up for points on here. I'm not sure if it's really worth it or not. I just kinda wanted to make the page a little fancier looking since this is my main "gallery" at the moment until I get my website up and running.

It's probably a waste. I don't know. I'm very indecisive. >.>

Streaming pies tonight, so if you want a live tutorial on pies, make sure you stop by. C: Making a bunch into magnets since those seem pretty popular.


Edit: I hope this didn't come across as me begging for points. >.< It was just more of me thinking out loud about trying it out. :)


Edit 2: Ah, well, looks like I was given one. Thank you! <3 Now I feel guilty. lol ._.

I had a premium for well over a year and besides a few random extra windows to post whatever and shiny journals, I found no use for it. It's waste of 5$+ dollars.

Also, if you offer points, remember that: 80 points= 1$ Please don't be putting things up for 20 points and extremely low prices, you will not make any profit.

Someone gifted me a 3 month sub so I don't have to worry about that. >.< If I ever do offer points, it'll be converted to whatever the dollar amount would be.

Sweet!

Also, if you do, wath out for cheap people. They love whining about points.

Yeah, I know. :/ It's on the same level as begging for free stuff. :P

It's not that. I'm just bad at receiving random gifts; I like giving back something that's equal to what was given to me. >.<

Do you have an estimate for what time you'll be doing the stream at? I always miss them xD

At 8:30pm or 9:00pm eastern...the latest at 9:30pm but I want to start earlier since pies take a while. I'll have a journal up around an hour before I start streaming. :)

I've had people ask me if I would do art for points... the problem is trying to figure out how many points would things be worth...

If I were to do it, I'd look at the price for a membership, convert it into the dollar amount, and charge it like that. It makes the most sense to me.

Yeah. I actually scared someone away before with trying to price items with points... 500pts is $4

What gets me is some people are willing to pay that small amount for points them pay people -less- in points than in $ amount. I only want membership for the polls so I can figure out things like pricing and such, and just general blah

Yeah. That's why when people offered me points before for items, I tended to say no, since they'd want to pay less than $1.00 for a piece. :/ At that point I'd rather open up art trades. lol

Yep. They just don't make any sense to me when they do that.

To me it's the same as asking for free items. :P

I got it snuck in on me. ._. I kind of feel bad; if I get something, I want to return the favor, you know? I just hope people didn't think I was looking for a freebie. >.<

Free membership day is pretty soon. Thats where everyone has free membership for a day. Maybe you should wait until then to decide whether or not you want a membership, so you can decide if it is worth it :)

Haha, think of it like this: If you sell your work for points, then you won't need to use real money to buy a PM!

Yeah, that's how I reasoned it with myself. I just haven't decided if I *really* need it or not. ;P

I would just give you a premium honestly :> /has a large amount of points hanging about. But theres an auction coming up I need points for. After that if I have some left I'll be extending my own premium and throwing other people a sub :>

No, no, I'd feel so bad. :C I've had people give me points for nothing and I send them right back. I just feel bad; if I'm given something, I feel like I need to give something of the equal amount back. I'm really bad with random gifts (though I do it myself all the freaking time >.<).
