I believe in tipping for all of the reasons stated in the article. While I have the various skills, I don't generally use them for business so essentially, if you're asking for something from me and I don't know you (or don't know you very well) you are pretty much BOTHERING ME. I get approached by all kinds of people for various reasons (especially so since I'm a MAGE) so I tend to really get tired of it anyway.Whether the person giving you the service is doing it specifically for business (in which case, you should tip because you know it's a BUSINESS) or they'd probably rather be doing something else (or actually IS, such as talking to guildies, organizing mail and bank, etc) and you are imposing on them.Tip. It could also win you good will from others on your server. Also, if you don't tip and you're faced with a bunch of crafters charging what you think is a ridiculous price for something, don't blame them. Most of them probably started charging a specific fee because they were sick and tired of getting ripped off. Actually, I think charging a specific fee is a good idea. (Though at that point, I think it becomes a fee and not really a tip but that's just semantics . . . )Treat people nicely or you'll find less nice people around as they become less generous and flexible as a result of putting up with cheapskates and greedy lazy bastards who think they are owed freebies or who think "well if they don't charge, it's their fault." I paid over 2000 g for my Bejeweled Bracers recipe. You don't wanna tip? Then next time, bring me the mats AND the recipe for me to learn and I won't expect a tip. :P
