Hi All

So far we've given out 1.2 Million Credits in Gifts!

This is GREAT, but it comes at a cost. You see the delivery is slowing down so I had to change the frequency and amount of credits given as gifts. They'll still come up but less often ;-)

I also realized I forgot to put the gifts into my graphs so I wasn't seeing exactly how many credits were given each day. I was scratching my head at why delivery was slowing down =P

The special page feature was great while it lasted but dropping it to -1-
credit just does not seem worthwhile enough to pick a member from the
group of 15...So I did not bother!

You know best Tim and delivering traffic is the life's blood of a TE

So I am sure you come up with something that will inspire your
membership into action again!

God Bless...

I also am not bothering with the 1 credit -- it is almost an insult to send someone 1 credit, after they have become accustomed to 5, 10 or 15 credits -- and further waste ot time to say thank you !

Better to stop the credit gifting completely for now -- rather than clinging to a vestige of a great program. --- or change the basis of the program from every 80 pages to every xxx Activity Points ( maybe 2000 or more )

We need the traffic and you Tim are the master !

Keep up the great work

Winning credits could be limited to the surfbar prize that we're accustomed to.

I give 250 credits, up to 4 times a day.
Not sure if that will last, but Tim, you could also do something of the sort.

I will continue to send credits, even if it is 1 credit - that is still 3 sites surfed for a free member!
Likewise I continue to thank those who chose me to receive the gift, regardless of the amount - if they can make the effort to gift, then I can make the effort to appreciate it
Or have we become so obsessed with chasing the Mighty Credit that we forgotten common courtesy?

PS - this is my personal opinion and has absolutely NOTHING to do with me being one of the Support Team, I would feel the same way regardless of the Traffic Exchange.

I do understand, and I agree about common courtesy.
However:
1. The time taken to send a thankyou is about the time I would need to earn 5 credits surfing (5-6 different sites). My present system for saying thanks is a little faster but not much. I still need to delete the PM from my inbox, and it's impossible to do without a surfing break.
2. I still receive thanks from people I have not sent credits to. So I get thanks that I don't deserve, and someone else doesn't get the thanks they should have.
3. Receiving extra credits is nice, but the fact is that someone has earned them by surfing. Ideally, they should be given to the person that surfed for them. Gifting could be left to those who have something extra to give,
like a couple of my most active team members give credits to be distributed among all our team members.

So whatever we may think about this otherwise excellent idea, I think it's time to reconsider and find a simpler, fairer system.
The greatest PRO for this system is that every time we receive a gift, we have a chance not only to say thanks, but to start a new friendship, or renew and expand one.
That's MY opinion, of course. :)

Hi Tim,

I must admit I was a little surprised to see 1 credit gift pages. I'm still sending them out. I agree with DeHawkinz that to free members, 1 credit is what's rewarded for surfing 3 pages, so I'm sure these gift pages are greatly appreciated regardless of how much they're worth. I'll be thanking anyone who sends me credits and I'll do my best to return the favour.

It's a great feature, brilliant for building community spirit on SX. Sorry it didn't work out completely as planned but we all have faith that you'll get the balance back to normal in no time. :)

Have a good week,

Like the others, I pass up the 1 credit pages for the same reasons. The time it takes me to review the potential recipients and select one stops me from surfing not only in SX but in the other exchanges in my surf set, and the time it takes for the recipient costs them even more time.

More to the point though, the time it is taking all of us to select/thank is keeping our pages from being displayed because everyone is stopping their surf to participate.

So, while I love these extra credits, receiving 1 credit and losing many more credits here and elsewhere is just not working for me. I still stop to thank those who pick me on the 1-credit page sometimes; but only if I see that I have at least 3 messages waiting so I can quickly send them all and get back to surfing.

I don't know of a better way to manage this program, but I sure do hope Tim can come up with something workable because it was definitely an exciting program and I made many new friends in the process, who I probably never would have met. That alone was a great reward.

Hi, Once in a while I would get a message in my inbox saying that I was given 5 credits or 15. Could someone explain to me about these credits? Are they automatically added to my credits when I'm surfing?

Hi can someone explain to me how these credits work? People are giving me credit gifts. Are these automatically assigned to my websites?

Thanks

These credits are added to your available credits total. If you have auto-assign set to ON them they will be assigned to your websites otherwise you can assign them yourself.

Yep, silly bug but it's fixed now ;-)It was rather funny, because I did not notice it untill I received a thank you that said "thank you, I think". We decided it was the thought that counts.
