Resolution to the Cash Out Problem! Maybe!

    So I was at the gym... where I do my deep thinking and burn off those candy bars and something came to me! A revelation of sorts. First, some background: I just started building my house and it is really frustrating when flooring costs several thousand, columns are about 1k, and some fencing is over 1k each! How can I share my aesthetic talents with the world if I can't afford the ridiculous price tags!

    I then realized that the high prices are most likely a safety precaution for the up and coming CASH OUT feature. They promised it, and they intend to fulfill that promise. But I'm sure EA's #1 apprehension is the financial burden that cashouts may bring about. Though I can often be cynical, I do not believe they want us to be poor but they can't afford for us to have excess funds that can send EALand to bankruptcy!

    So... here is my resolution: to donate a percentage of all simoleans being cashed out to charity on the part of players!
    - This will discourage anyone from trying to make a living off of this game by using 8 accounts to pizza 24 hours a day, which translates to less being cashed out, which translates to less worries concerning EALand bankruptcy!
    - Accounts that have cashed out and therefore donated a certain amount of money can be given badges on their accounts possibly? Which can vary depending on how much they have donated in total.
    - Each month can spotlight a specific charity or non-profit organization.
    - We will be helping less fortunate people by playing a video game?! What? That is insane! Yet groundbreaking!

    Okay I just emptied my brain onto you all. What do you think about this? Any modifications that you think will help this to work better? [​IMG]

    Have a good Weekend Loves

    I for one...Do not what the cash-out feature in-game. I hope, EA devs will think this through carefully.

    No thanks.

    And WHY?

    I donate clothes, furniture, and other items to charities.

    I am sure there are online charities.

    Cashout will be used by powergamers and botters no matter how low the cash amount is.
