Hasn't anyone just thought that .. maybe Swagbucks gets alerted to glitches because of the fact that suddenly a video gets a higher amount of views than normal .. so they check it out and realise for themselves that something is wrong so they pull the video
That could very well happen, but even if a code system makes a glitch vid last just an hour longer it is worth it imo.

And the reason I asked about FC is that there is no logical reason for you to be so hostile, unless you misunderstood or have some kind of other reason.

This is NOT what the topic was set up for in the first place

It's my opinion but you don't want to hear it

members on here were talking about other ways apart from the round robin thing.

Hi Cally - I wondered what had happened to you. Hope you are OK.

Both Swagbucks and this thread have gone downhill a lot and it's everyone's prerogative to transfer their allegiance to other sites. I've hardly posted on this thread for some time and have done a bit more on FB trying to get issues sorted with Nick and Swagbucks US (and have been personally attacked by SB US on that FB thread as a result, as have one or two others). I would like to see this MSE thread revert to the fun place it used to be without any bickering or rudeness from anyone and I'm pleased to see that others are similarly minded. I don't think it's anyone's intention to move this thread away from what Fairyclicks originally intended it to be ie. an open thread for everyone to discuss the best way of earning swagbucks, and I believe that the idea of having some kind of open system in place to alert everyone to things that they can benefit from is truly in line with Fairyclick's original ideas. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and that is why there is a discussion in place to thrash out the pro's and cons of what could and could not work - ultimately if noone thinks it will be practical then we can move on. Swagbucks has treated a lot of people badly in my opinion - I know you've been critical of them in the past, and rightly so (and I fully support that). Everything is loaded very heavily towards Swagbucks and people are now earning less and less. I think if there's any way that we as a group of people can redress that balance then it's a good thing. If we can't, then at least we can say 'we tried'.

It would be nice to have you back again posting as in the past, but I can appreciate why you've not felt able to do so.

thanks to thriftyfelicity for this, i have just found this on her thread:

"The High 5 Casino offer that is on the Swagbucks front page is also on the Matomy wall, available on Neobux and other sites, but worth a lot more:

Neobux: 27 to 45 cents (267 NeoCoins)
Swagbucks: 9 cents (6p, 10SB)"

Cally,with all due respect ,SBs employ 7 or 8 employees to deal with customer services issues. That is 7 or 8 people to deal with ALL of SBs,which is atrocious , (just look how one Jewish holiday left a back log of more than a month of missing payouts),so I doubt they will put their hands in their pockets for staff to deal with technical issues or watch out for repeating vid watches. Every single issue that made us money & was mentioned on here was removed.
Repeating vids.
The phone app .Plus we Brits never DID get the one promised us.
Others I can't recall just now,but they got zapped asap when talked of openly....... if you were SBs would YOU not take full advantage of a gift horse thread that tells you when you are hemorrhaging precious pennies ? I would. This thread is the mother lode for SBs,and I'm all for making THEIR life as difficult as they make ours with non-crediting surveys & offers. It is common sense.Why should we keep feeding them info when they can't be a$$ed addressing our lost money ?

I am not sure i understand what the "secret codes" will achive as such.... if they are to be added to the first post in the thread then SB rep would also know what they mean.
If they were only to be knowen via PM, then posting "RV samsung front page" or something like that would mean the SB rep would would go look at that offer to see what he could find.... and in anycase the glitch would be posted in other forums and in facebook.

As helpful as these threads are i would personally like to see them split into 2 threads.
Thread 1. codes and offers that work and warnings to those that don't work, plus SB codes etc. but no chit chat.... even better would be a twitter feed ?
Thread 2. SB general chat and fun ?

I would also like to see an FAQ on SB for new users somewhere.... best times to search, warnings about downloading things etc.

PS Paul, when you looked up what 'brown owl' means on that other site did you bother to look what 'toad in the hole' means ?

This week alone I've had a 40sbs ,two 20 sbs ,and a 60 sbs surveys not credit. (email ones) .Did I complain ? Nope . Because I worked out that my frustration at non-payment was preferable to the frustration of the looooonnngggg drawn out process of contacting customer support only to be STILL not credited and spoken to like a nine year old.
So any way we can screw up THEIR flow of info is fine by me.
Offers etc can still be posted ,but for all else it needs a system in place to keep it from nosy SBs staff. It is good sense . And Karma.

Been reading with interest and other things for the past couple of hours.

I think, through my age, drink and sunburn addled mind that:

A simple code system would work here. It has worked on other threads to varying degrees of success, from what I have seen and have gathered from comments above.

It needs to be just enough to firstly, ensure that noobs will quickly gather that there is a code system in place and will therefore be referred to the central reference point on the first post, and secondly, to ensure that anyone here to identify glitches for nefarious reason from quickly scanning through the threads for intelligence will find it difficult.

I say make it difficult as although I am sure that this thread could be an easy place to find and stop glitches, the nefarious ones would then find it a fruitless waste of time and energy and maybe look elsewhere. Like FB - which is beyond our control tbh.

Therefore achieving the aim being discussed, that this is not the place where SB can easily gather info on glitches from.

No one is left out and, as on the whole, we are a helpful and caring bunch on here, noobs will quickly be picked up and swept along in a gonadial and pelvic floorial (?) whirlwind of downright depravity and good mirth.

And if the atmosphere lifts, which I aim to help by contributing more, the codes and phrases will disappear into the gusset of irreverence.

Plus, it's not like everything will be in cryptic, unfathomable spook speak from now on, as the infrequency of glitches is not an everyday occurrence.

Discuss.

I don't understand the sense in posting codes on the first page either. But granted I'm not very Machiavellian minded.
It seems to me SBs would simply make sure nicky popped in to check once a month & note them.
I'm still for using the PM share system at the start of each month when codes change. Everyone who posts on here will get the codes sent by someone. Or they can PM a designated team of sharers we can nominate.......say 6/7 people .......for the latest codes.
Well ,that's my solution/opinion/idea.
To be perfectly honest I don't care that lurkers might lose out . Why would I ? If they don't care enough to join up & offer anything to the thread then why do they need considered in thread decisions ?
We give give give on here and SBs & lurkers take. It doesn't make sense & is deeply unfair.
Sorry if that sounds harsh. But come on....I bet a few others feel the same.

I know exactly where your coming from milo and occasionally feel the same.

I do think, however, think that the thread must remain true to its founding principle, in that is a free for all source of help and guidance on all aspects of using Swagbucks.

I myself was a lurker for an (admittedly) short time and wonder how I would have felt if the thread appeared to be a closed system.

I am sure all contributors begin as lurkers.

I think PM systems rely on humans, which can be a unreliable thing and with people vacating this thread for pastures new at an alarming rate could lead to missing links.

There's a fine balancing point here.

Make it difficult enough for SB snooping to be negated completely and you inevitably make it too complicated for noobs and I am sure alot of casual (but very welcome) users.
