I Did Not Get Paid For A Post :(

Um Hi,

I think I mostly need staff to reply to this topic.
Basically I made a post about How to get more bids on ebay http://forums.xisto.com/topic/67783-how-to-get-more-bids-on-ebay/ << There.
After that there was loads of downtime now today I come back on and I do not have the mycents from it.

Please could staff get the mycents I earned Thank-You.

The myCENTs, I believe, are granted when you first post a topic rather than when it is made visible by a staff member. You posted the topic yesterday afternoon, so are you sure you didn't get the myCENTs then? If so, and they still haven't appeared in a few hours, then we'll bring it to OpaQue and BuffaloHELP's attention as a possible bug.


Ash-Bash

Nope I am sure I did not get paid for it ;).

I think the server crashed maybe. Reason of the downtime meaning myCENTS wouldn't update because the server was inactive, with no response to re-calculate Cents.

At the time of downtime, i posted my reply to SMF 2.0 topic. that reply was with 2 paragraph and when i hit reply i got server issue. and i found Xisto under downtime and not accessible. after that 4-5 hours, Xisto was back. so i guess i lost my reply and MyCents both are into cloud now. same is the case with most of other members i guess. Is MyCents algorithm updated ?

Hi Ash!Did you post a thread about un-paid myCENTs quite a while back? I have a weird sense of deja vu here. I believe you eventually got the myCENTs after about 4-5 days.How the myCENTs system works is a black box to most users. What we really care about is that it works and we get to use it for free web hosting and domain registration.Regards


SpiderVV

True. Since the downtime, my cents aren't growing as fast as they were before.

You know, I'm not positive like you are, but I'm pretty sure I lost out on some my cents too, the day Xisto went down. I was actually on line posting when it went down. For awhile the last post I wrote didn't even show up, but it fianlly came up like the next day. And since we are on this subject, I have to say, I am totally confused about how this works. Why do the numbers bounce around so much???In the little box where my avatar is where it says "earned" it always stays about the same, $56, but the mycents bounces like crazy. One day it said $74 and I made some posts and it dropped to $30, then today I see it is up to $96. I just can't figure out the rhyme or reason to it.

The Earned counter is tracking how many whole dollars have been transferred to your account. The myCENTs counter is tracking cents (ie. when it says 56.13 it means $00.5613). When it reaches 100, it is equal to a whole dollar and gets transferred to your Earned total next time the script runs. Then it gets deducted by 100, so it can appear to bounce around as you earn cents and they get transferred.

sheepdog

Ah ha! Now I understand. It makes perfect sense now that you explain it that way. Thanks!


Tramposch

Idea.

 

If somebody has a serious case and really thinks that they lost money, why doesnt a staff member delete the topic and repost it, im not sure if the credits would go away if they were never received though..

 

Worth a try

If the system was working I should of got around $1-2 but I didn't get anything the only thing I got paid for was a small post that was it. What are you going to do about this staff? Please let me know either reply back here or PM me.

I believe the maximum you can earn for any one post is $1. If you were expecting more then you could possibly have missed exactly $1 being transferred.

Moderators have no control over or access to the myCENTs system. If you really believe you haven't been credited for a post then you will need to contact an admin or the support team for help.

I think that's not true.....when my brother put in a lengthy article, it was credited $3. And I think I also got $1.5 for a post I made just yesterday. There will be a limit of course, but I think it's slightly larger than $1 or $5.

I must say I don't really know about that.... I sometimes made many several lengthy posts on different topics and the most I get out of it is $3, for quite a few of those posts. If this is the case then we should change the line "the bigger and the longer you post, the more you make" into "the bigger and longer you post, the more you make unless you cross the $1 limit of post earning".....

And that mean that more than half of my posts could be half as short and I'd still make as much money as I'm earning right now....
Awwwww.....

I think the best solution would be to stop worrying how much you earn out of a post and start worrying about the quality of your post. If all the members were only bothered about how much they're making from their posts, then the forum would be full of long but meaningless posts! It's good to make a long post, but it should also have some good content. If one goes on talking about something in a random manner then it loses all meaning and whether or not the poster gets a lot of money, the people who read that long post get bored! myCENTs will come in unexpected ways - no one really knows how the script works. So let's all forget about how much we're making and concentrate on the quality of the posts, shall we? ;)

Yeah I think you are totally right. I don´t know how the MyCents script works if my memory doesn´t fail the most I have earned with a post are $0.75 with a legnthy post. I don´t understand how some guys say they have earned until $10 with a single post. I think the downtime in the server cause the fail in the MyCents system when all the people post some topics.

I think there are some things that are not rigth with the MyCents system because the Mycents that we earn must not be proportionally to the length of the post. I try to make good quality post always but I don´t earn $3 a post; sometimes I only make $0.15-0.35 a post regularly. I have made a lot of length post and I dont earn $3 a post I think that this is only a lie from these forum members.

I have a question to all the moderators:

A member that have a SuperMember status receive more MyCents than a Newbie?

Can someone give me a good explanation about this.

Please

;):P:D

No, and in fact, I think you earn less. When I moved up in rank/posts I thought I earned less, but it is slightly less. With the old v2 credit system, the more posts you have, the harder it was to earn credits.

Well, I consider my posts as NOT SPAM, and by that, I mean like, good quality posts that either contribute to the thread or the post before mine, open up new questions RELATING to the thread itself, especially in philosophical questions and answers and threads, or just giving my two cents worth in the forums just as I'm doing right now...

But I think you're right. We should concentrate on the quality of the posts, not the actual number of characters in the post itself!!!
But I don't think that a robot that can differentiate a good quality post with bad quality ones, as they'll probably look the same to the poor robot. Aww....
We can wait until this techonology has been invented... But for now, just enjoy the sites and all the trees. You never know when this technology will be developed, assuming that it will in the first place.

I really don't think that this is right. On my first forum posts, I got like, one dollar immediately, but now, I have to post lots and lots and lots of times before I get even one dollar. Does that mean that the longer a member you are the longer it takes to get one dollar??? Oh my god... that means that when I get like, a few years older I'll be posting like, non-stop and still get nowhere near the new cost fee for my website, because even if the fee doesn't change, I'll still need to post a lot to keep up with my hosting fees that get harder to post every single day and earn money.

No, and in fact, I think you earn less. When I moved up in rank/posts I thought I earned less, but it is slightly less. With the old v2 credit system, the more posts you have, the harder it was to earn credits.

That is what I said in the previous post to the reply in the previous quote... and yeah, I agree with you. Thank god they changed the v2 system to the new one, and we don't exactly know whether we get less myCENTS or not, and I don't have to worry about that anymore!!!

hmm that's interesting - that means our top posters earn lesser than us per post. Well that does make sense but doesn't make lot of difference. It's not as if you're earning something like $0.01 per post! ;) whatever we're getting now is only fair and I don't have anything to say against it.

$10 may seem to be a lie but amounts like $3, $5 are indeed possible in the initial stages and there's no saying that it's impossible after getting a certain number of posts. anyway, as I said before, it's best to stop worrying for the cents after a while. That's just my 2 myCENTS :P
