How many times can I gift gold?

You are only allowed to give twenty-five (25) people Gold each subscription period. This is a safety precaution for the members, and helps to reduce the chance of fraud or abuse. We don't want the entire TTG community to have gold because someone had a stolen PayPal account and was gifting it to everyone that they could. This would be bad for all parties involved, so we set the limit to twenty-five (25). Once the subscription period is over, you will then be allowed to gift twenty-five (25) more people in the continuing subscription period.
