Das Tokenal

A treatise, like Das Kapital, analyzing the social and economic ramifications of the creation of EP Tokens and their value. NOT. For those curious once in awhile I'll post my points and tokens. I'm starting today as I have exactly 75.000 points and 71 tokens. So far I'm pretty sure writing a 1st story within a group gets you 5 tokens...if posting THIS story results in a reward I'll update..
   The group doesn't use tokens so does it really matter how many I get? IDTS. :)
UPDATE: No tokens for just posting a non-1st story, and earning 50 more points didn't get me more tokens so the exchange rate isn't 10::1.

Lord, you are bored, aren't you?

yes, sir :(

i had one token now tonight i had three. Your a genius to work all that out ...im crap at working stuff out.. ive got two tokens now that i just rated your post damn :)

Vote early, vote often :)

Hi,I think the way the tokens thing works is based upon the amount of activity you do here.I seem to get 2 tokens for every 250 points I earn.
I DO use my tokens however I am always in a state of my tokens going up and up no matter how many I spend.They do allow you to send virtual gifts,yes I appreciate that these gifts are not real however there is one I like to use,the big yellow happy face.If I see one of my friends is feeling low in mood I will send a bright cheerful token in private with suitable words attached.So on this occasion I have to agree to disagree with you my friend,I think they are a good idea.
What I don't like about them is the confusion they cause with newcomers whom are encouraged to purchase tokens,and EP has not priced them cheaply.As a volunteer I hear this question about tokens all the time "do I need to buy tokens,I thought this site was free",I think I will make a separate post about this in the "I want to improve EP " group,no one especially our new peers should feel compelled to purchase these tokens.
Regards :-)

lol having fun? X]

Trying to!

If you join loads of groups they give you more.....i fink , innit ?

lol .....it works !

Must have embarrassed someone to fix it. :)

:0 ) Hey Miss M cant get a grip on the token thing either.....I have 50 tokens which = my age. Surely your not age 81 my friend.
