There’s probably some good etiquette in the dogecoin post which I haven’t reviewed. Here’s some general tipping etiquette to get the most out of your tips. Open to feedback:
- Add the word ‘private’ to most tips to keep threads tidy.
- Try to tailor fun custom monikers to the communities you’re tipping in.
- This isn’t just about collecting tips. It’s about giving tips.
- Tips of higher value make a much better impression outside of giveaway threads.
- If somebody clearly does not want to be tipped, do not tip them, even as a joke.
- Do not engage in drive-by tipping sprees. It really pisses people off and mucks up the works, and is the primary reason why some people have been banned from other subreddits ‘for tipping’.
- Find original content, share some insight, then leave a tip at the end.
Different communities have different minimum tip standards.
- All tip amounts are welcome in /r/ChangeTip, /r/BitTippers, and /r/FreeBits. Go subscribe!
- In /r/Bitcoin, we need to aim for at least 100 bits, but preferably $.25 or more.
- When tipping anywhere else on reddit, I cannot stress enough how important it is to tip at least $1.00, because any less will almost always leave a bad impression since they’re most likely not accustomed to microtransactions. If you’re not sure how it will be perceived, you can always ask first, and/or use the ‘private’ function.
I would personally like to hear more thoughts on specific YouTube Channels, Twitter Accounts and Subreddits that could have the most impact from thoughtful and reasonably high value ($5-10+?) tips. Also, it would be great if you could spread the word on social media as I dont think we have quite hit viral status yet. Send everyone to /r/FreeBits and in particular this thread.
Feel free to add any other thoughts or concerns.
