No. Not only would it take away a major component in gameplay, but it would make things more divided. What would a banner-maker that doesn't really enjoy making banners (not sure there are any, and I don't think people would do this consciously, but really) do if they have a lot of real money? Their banners might go away. Why sell dogs to those who need them when you can FH them and buy the money, or pay for their food?

The game would become very easy for those who could pay, and to those who couldn't-well-they might have to just step aside. I love Shoqdog because it's one of the few games where REAL money doesn't always gets in the way and separates players. I really hope that doesn't change.

Megan happy :)

Instead of the ability to purchase SD money, I would prefer to see a "bonus" system implemented; bonuses awarded based on achievement.

X amount for finishing a champion - or if you prefer x amount for finishing every X champions.

X amount for a GCh or again, maybe people would prefer x amount for finishing X grand champions.

X amount for completing an obedience title
(which might also encourage more participation in obedience?)

X amount for an AOM

I like this idea, it rewards players for putting the effort in and give them extra money

My only problem with this is that the rare breeds rarely if ever have a CH these days, and it can take years for a Source Breeder to get to this stage. Yes, the Obedience titles are possible but the CH, GCH, AOM may not be.

If something could be implemented that would also fairly reward those people for their achievements then I'd totally be for this system.

Personally I don't find it rare to get a Ch in rare breeds. Hard, time consuming, costly - yes - but it's possible. If I could recoup $25 per champion I'd be happy to have that, $100 I'd be ecstatic.

As for source breeders, I would say that source breeding and not showing was that player's choice of how to play the game. The idea of these bonuses is to reward showing and hopefully enables players to recoup a little bit of the cost of sessioning, conditioning and campaigning. The kennels where I color breed tend to be the most well off financially because I'm not spending money on high priced foods and showing dogs. In those color breeding kennels I would understand and wouldn't have a problem with not being eligible for this type of bonus; because I'm not finishing champions, gchs, etc. (Kind of like I can't be mad about not winning the lottery if I didn't buy a ticket.)

Hard to get GCh and AOM - in my mind, that's the point. The bonus idea is to reward your hard work - the harder the task is to complete, the greater the reward should be. I've been playing SD since 2009 and I think I have bred 3, maybe 4 AOM winners. Maybe it's easy in some of the popular breeds, but in my breeds that's hard, time consuming, dedicated work. Does it deserve a title on the end of the dog's name? I think so? Is it worth a $500 bonus? I would say yes.

Anyway, all of this is just my personal opinion on a suggestion I made that's not even under consideration; so in the end it's probably all moot anyway. happy :)

I live off of disability due health.
Showdog is the one of the few luxuries I allow myself.

There is no way I can afford to pay for extra Showdog money. I am sure there are others that play this game who also would find it hard to buy more SD money.

I also feel that making banners as a way to make money is a very grey, shady area.
Not everyone, including myself, have the talent or resources to do so.
By no means am I condoning or bashing those that do. I just find it a great disadvantage for those that don't.

I would say in general NO particularly given the ability to buy judges.

But I would be in favour of the option to pay RL money to "declare bankruptcy" where the payer's debt could be wiped out - similar to an account reset - for a fee proportional to the amount of debt they have accrued. Similar to RL bankruptcies there would be a limit to how frequently you could do it (maybe like once every 6 months??).

there will allways be people who cheat or abuse things, you often see people with more then 1 basic account who get shut down when people notice and report them, many more proberly go unnoticed. There was even a thing a while ago where a kennel was able to cross breed there low sop breed to a higher sop one to improve there quality greatly.

Also yes there are kennels who don't sell/stud already however if money could be brought the amount of those types of kennel would rise so there would be no advantage for others as those type of kennels wont be buying dogs, using studs or sponsoring shows and wont allow other to use there dogs so it restricts lines.

Theres nothing against the rules to stop someone running a closed kennel so jeff could do nothing to prevent it.

because there are both positives and negatives to being able to buy sd money and the negatives effects could spoil the game for other players.

I have no need to buy money so it wouldn't effect me at all either way and im not worried about loseing a top spot as I haven't managed to get and hold on it yet. However I can see how it could negatively effect the game for some other users and I don't see why it should when its not hard to stay out of dept. Yes there will be some positives but if something can cause problems for others and will realy only help some who have gotten themselves into dept I don't see why it should be implemented.

Creation Kennel, it more or less is up to us members. That's why Jeff put up a poll. It's a close call, but it looks as though the consensus is "No" for buying ShowDog money right now.

If it was solely up to Admin, they wouldn't have bothered to ask.

This would be a huge change to the site. This isn't a 10 character addition to the call name.

Thanks for proving my point. Cheating and getting advantage over others has gone on and will continue without this feature. I'm willing to guess a lot is because newer players are trying to get more of a bankroll to continue a kennel. I ran into a kennel in another breed account of mine a few years back that I could tell that some hijinx was going on. I contacted them and politely told them the rules against buying and selling between kennels and Jeff will see the activity and there would be repercussions. She had no idea. She had created another kennel to be able to help the other kennel to grow. She claimed she had no way to start her little kennel out on what starter money was given to pay to get quality pups that would be able to compete in the ring and in breeding. That because of the length of time it takes to session a dog to be able to compete, it zapped the excitement and fun out of the showing aspect. Full sessioned dogs were more expensive and again, with what was given to get her kennel up and going she couldn't afford it to get enough dogs to make it enjoyable. Breeding was boring because the amount of breed fee, then getting a quality pup, and begin the long sessioning cycle.
She was trying trying the shows, but because her dogs weren't full sessioned and able to fully compete, others in the breed were filling the shows she was entered in to get their points and souring the show experience.
At the point I contacted her, she was bankrupt and felt what shd was doing between the two accounts, was her only chance of helping her out. I offered to help her out and bought a couple low SOP pups that wouldn't help my kennel and was quickly sent to a loving home, to help her account. She decided to get a family account and opened a could more different breeds to try and run them differently, smarter and hopefully with cheaper studs, more competitors do the shows she entered with her under sessioned dogs wouldn't be flooded. After a couple of weeks, she wrote me to tell me she wasn't renewing her family account and would be leaving. With her new,ore popular breeds, she wasn't getting the flooding, but she wasn't getting points either and it was boring and slow for her, she wanted to fully play the game. Without more money, she felt she couldn't obtain that.

Now, is that no way the story of every player, big I suspect it's the same story a lot of new players face. They want to be a part of the game! They can't compete against the full kennels of quality dogs, no matter the breed or rarity. Many don't understand when signing up what time and money it does take, they want to play NOW! I feel with the ability of buy a few SD dollars, she may have stayed longer and with a family account, would have helped several breeds. But no go.

I managed my kennels just fine, thank you for your concern. My other kennels are all in the black as far as I temember. The problem is, I either sold all my dogs off when leaving that account, or my dogs are too old or low in SOP that probably would do me no good. But I like to use older dogs to keep my lines a part any breeding. So with whatever money I do have, I would more then likely to go into the red by buying a few new dogs, began breeding. Of course I can start out small, and probably would have to, but with more money, I could do more and bring more to the whole breed community and benefit the other breeders and in the ring more quickly. Then again, I'd also like to get into breeds I was never in before.

That's hypothetical, you can't state that as if it is a fact. There are many breeder that dominate their breeds now that already play this way, and others don't. That comes down to personal preference. I don't think they should be vilified for closing their kennels to others for whatever reason. I also don't think those who were to buy SD funds should be vilified. They're both a tool that could be utilized if/when they like.

Because the negatives here outweigh the positives. Again, this would seriously effect gameplay and needs to be throughly reviewed.

Can someone post a post that lists all the negatives and positives? Degree? Lilliput?

Maybe the ones who want it are focusing to much on the positives rather than the negatives...Degree is right. The negatives, in the end, outweigh by a lot.

The greatest positive in this thread is that Jeff even asked for opinions. As the owner of the game, he could choose to offer game play money as a business decision. As it is now, a player can buy more kennels or buy more kennel runs.

Jeff could choose to reconfigure his business model away from a monthly subscription towards a model whereby you pay for so much salary per kennel.

We all play lots of games where you can 'buy' into the game to get advantages. I bet none of us have been asked an opinion on it.

Bottom line is that some would like and some won't. Jeff will make the best business decision for his business.

Everkai, I would, but that wouldn't create unanimity. I've played this game for seven years in three kennels and dissention has always been a constant.

As Arial Eve and a few others have stated, it's Admin's decision. But so long as I have a voice, I'll use it.
(By the way, how does having 10 accounts and 50 dogs in a kennel help one financially? That's what we are discussing here.)

I am quite enlightened by the financial plight of a lot of players. With safeguards, this could work. But as the game stands, I just don't know.

Whatever happens, happens. I'll be over here working on perfecting heads and hindquarters in my breed regardless happy :)

The sit for exam is a modified version of the Stand for Exam. It is generally used in novice level classes and requires the handler to order the dog to sit and then to move away from the dog the length of the leash. The judge will then approach the dog and pet the dog's head.

A specialty show is a dog show which reviews a single breed, unlike other dog shows, particularly conformation shows, which are generally referred to as "all-breed" because they are open to all breeds recognized by the sponsoring kennel club.
