Bumping and tipping at the RDMB

Hi all

I will be going to the RDMB in 2 weeks time and staying for 2 weeks, I cant wait. I have been reading the comments on the forum for the past month or so, and notice that people are bumped quite often. Does anyone know if this normally happens to people who stay for only a few nights or am I more likely to be bumped as I will be there longer.

Also, I have read with the interest the thread about tipping etc. Could someone give me an idea of what kinds of things would be appropriate to take as gifts for the locals and how much tipping is appropriate (i.e. in monetary terms).

Thanks for any advice.
