No more yerfies to buy games?
Personally, I think that that is a bad idea.
It feels so rewarding to save up YB for a couple of years to get a Costume Party expansion.

I already posted this in the comment for the journal, so if you already read that, skip this.

I don't like this idea for 1 reason. People like Coolguy that have worked really hard to get tons of yerfbucks shouldn't have the currency they have be reduced to a week of playing some game. I suggest you add a new currency. Yerfbucks can only be gained the same way that they are now, and there's a new type of currency for other things. Somethings will be only purchasable with the yerfbucks, or they'll be purchasable with yerfbucks or the new currency. I'm not against stopping to give games away because people have yerfbucks, but I still suggest that yerfbucks have some importance greater than this new currency.

Blackduck, what you're describing is pretty much my experience of what happened when the currency switched from Prize Points to Yerfbucks originally. I had worked long and hard to get my 199 PPs, yet the value in YBs dropped tremendously.

Sadly, these things happen. At the moment, I don't have any use for the currency at all, and am intrigued and actually quite excited as to what Jamul is going to do with it.

CG, well, he was just lucky before, getting all of those PPs and YBs. I almost beat him in that Code hunting contest in DUHcember, but he just pipped me to the post... Still, no hard feelings.

If Jamul does change the currency, please let Yerf$ be at least a secondary currency. If that's too much, just convert the Yerfs into the new currency. Just make Yerfdog happy.

I agree with Jamul, if the YBs will be that easy to obtain, buying games with them would be trivially easy, its the only option.

My idea: Either rename Yerfbucks to something else, or use the something else in place of Yerfbucks in all of the new things, and implement a way of converting Yerfbucks to the new thing. (It might be more enjoyable if you didn't include this part, as otherwise everyone will think CG is still too rich. ) This lets people keep their yerfbucks for as long as they like, (within limits. You could auto-convert everything after a year or so.) but it means you still have creative free reign on the value of the other currency.

I just found a flaw in mine and Onion's converting idea: We probably won't have the exact amount of yerf$ to equal a number of whole new currency dollars. Unless he makes each dollar of the new currency smaller.

One additional thing this solves: People begging for yerfbucks so they can afford a game.

How about some completly different points for buying games? That way, you can spend YB's on other things instead of buying games with them.

Or, perhaps, a very simple solution: Temporarily put code in to allow "old" Y$ to buy discounts and slowly phase them out.

To look at the big picture here, I think it's a good idea to scratch Yerfbucks being used towards purchases. After all, with the way this expansion is sounding, unless it was something like 1000 Y$=1 cent, Jamul would "go broke and die in the gutter". This looks very exciting, overall. But if you want a game, you better go use those Yerfbucks!

I actually like the idea of not allowing games to be bought with Yerfies, as long as there are lots of other new options to spend them on. [And honestly, another currency would be nice, but should be harder to come by.] Believe it or not, I get a little irritated by people who post ideas in contests just for the Yerfies. [Sure, I found them "inspirational" too, but I also liked coming up with goofy ideas.]

But lots of notices should be given. I mean send out emails_x_2. I have about 600, and I'll probably be getting the Dumb Pack if Yerfies aren't good for games soon.

I'd at least like a strong notification if this DOES happen [heaven forbid], so I can save all the JCtC pictures.

Jamul's kept all the posts from ever, except the Spamocalypse, and we had ample warning about that IIRC.

Alright, so in games he could use Yerf Coins. They are like yerfbucks, but do not count towards games. You can still earn yerfbucks in game, but only for milestones like "You have leveled up to level 10. Heres 5 YB's as a reward!"
Yerf coins could buy avatar bits, and any other such without being overloaded since they wont go towards games.
So simple!
Man why didn't i think of that.
...... Hmmm. Seems i did.
But thats the idea of multiple types of currency. Id probably get super confused though, because we'd buy his games, play them for more YBS, only get some, save up on the forums, go buy some more games.... And then id sit there going: uh....hey. I have...300Yb. Is that enough?
And you'd all be like:
No.
And id probably never earn any other YBS.
