I'm personally earning 600 per month and I don't even remember spending very much.
Request points are not REQUIRED for these guys to make a trainer, it just shows that there's enough demand for a trainer to justify spending time making a trainer for the game. If the guys want to make a trainer, they probably will anyways.
Still.. This discussion probably belongs to another thread.
Very few people purchase points, the majority are earned each month with our various membership levels. All games that reach the required goal will be evaluated for a trainer, in order of certain criteria. The OP asked what he could do to "persuade" a trainer and I told him. Games that are gifted to us receive the highest priority and would move the game up the list of 39 which are also fully funded. So instead of looking at this game in a week or two, we are looking at it today. I never said that gifting us the game was required to make a trainer for this game.
