    Back to the matter at hand though, I've just had a search win on one of these that gave me 12 SB plus a Collectors Bill plus I had a double up from the December Spin and Win. Happy with that

    I wasn't going to post on this thread again but have to say it is the simple lack of commonsense as much as anything else that is sad - codes have been posted on both threads for over 4 years without any issues, people who use the main thread can get the codes without needing to go elsewhere and those who want codes without anything else could subscribe to the code thread - how did that cause a problem to anybody?
    If someone didn't want to post the code on both threads I am pretty sure someone else would add the missing one so there was no pressure to post twice on anyone (I had been using the main thread for sometime before another post made me aware of the code thread).

    Given the importance of the first post for users of the current style forum simply locking the old thread instead of leaving it for a new one to be started in an orderly manner at the beginning of the year seems less than helpful as well.

    You need to apply it to your Amazon account by topping up your gift card balance having added the new card as a new payment method. No idea what the wallet is.
    Couple of points when adding a new payment card to Amazon they verify the card by 'borrowing' £1 from the card balance, so you won't initially be able to pay in the full £10, only £9. They are supposed to return the £1 in 10 working days. Mine just took 26 days total, maybe they're busy!
    Amazon changes things so finding the top up your giftcard link can sometimes be a bit of a journey!
    Edit: BTW initially you need to follow the links for the Mastercard code to create a virtual mastercard, they offer the option of a real plastic one but it costs £5! It's easier than it sounds.

    So are we allowed to post on here that there is a code on there? If so isn't it just simpler to actually type the code here as well? Genuinely don't understand why MSE is getting all Big Brother over this. Also MSE if you are going to give me a "yellow card" then you need to tell me what for and find a betetr threat than a "red card" that means I can't post for 2 whole weeks.

    Me too Karmacat. I'm relatively new to the Swagbucks thread and was shocked at the attitude of the BG's. A BG has caused great upset on a thread which was working perfectly well by his 'high-handedness' (your words but they fit precisely). Complaints have been made and the BG's response is to close that thread and tell 'someone' to open a new thread. It brings ill feeling to an otherwise happy community and I'm pretty sure that Martin himself would not agree with their approach to this matter. I feel very sad about this

    One thing that's really off-putting about any forum is mods/admins who seem to like to have something to do.

    This decision was obviously made by people who aren't regular followers of these threads, so aren't aware of how much it benefits many people to have the choice of thread for the codes. As mjm says, it's about common sense. The vast majority are happy with them in both, so there's no need to change it.

    And I totally agree with Molly that mods/admins (whatever you want to call them) being lenient and only acting when absolutely necessary is the best way to ensure an enjoyable forum.

    Ok so forgive me for bewing dim, Is someone watching this thread 24/7 for every time a 'redeem in swagbutton' word comes up? or is it only the "odous" (fish-e ) word that triggers it?
    Make £520 a year in 2019 so far £45 (£42.42 cash £5 AGC)

    (2018, no idea!) ( 2017 £673.20) (2016 £800.97) (2015 £791.42/$312)

    Codes
    Until 3 days ago I didn't even know there was a codes thread and picked up codes through Swagbucking 2018 and posted codes up when I spotted them early on. I've given in now and subscribed to the new codes thread.

    I suppose I've learned something as I've subscribed which I've never done with an MSE thread before, so may benefit from recent events. Personally I've found the whole episode a bit odd.

    I wasn't expecting it, but somehow the Santa letter offer that someone kindly posted on here has just credited for me, even though I didn't make a purchase. It was 300 SB

    lol love the proof that some people interfere with things they don't understand, I mean closing the last thread how many days before it would naturally have come to an end?
    I missed the swag code last night when I needed it for the swago board before I give up (although the board lasts for several days not all of us spend that time available to work on swago).
    All I can say is that bored guides used to annoy scouts not be high handed on here. Bet I get banned for saying anything.

    I would suggest that there are things going beneath the surface of MSE that we can't and won't know about due to the change to commercial ownership. We probably won't get to know what the Board Guides are being asked or told to do. I doubt that this massive forum is a profit making venture and probably costs a lot to run. Perhaps we should stop having a go at Board Guides and just get on with it?

    I would think the forum might make money in some aspect? Doesn't the number of times the page is accessed improve the site's rating, pushing it up the Google search rankings etc...

    But I don't really know a lot about this stuff...

    I didn't know the site had changed ownership though, that's interesting. I always thought Swagbucks must be a decent earner. If a massive amount of people sign up to Swagbucks, after being referred by someone else or a business, then that referrer gets 10% of their earnings for life....

    So it seems the survey swagups on the swago board get applied to surveys the second you take them rather than when you complete them, as I noticed I had one activated, but didn't qualify for the survey, I did another survey (successfully) and got another one applied for that one.

    Pretty sleazy of them, but right on target for what you expect from them I suppose.

    Hello

    There's a click and earn in the Inbox for 5 sbs, it takes you to a Casino site, but it credits without having to do anything more.
    It also ticks off Discover on the To Do List.

    Sorry, but I can't give credit to the original poster because I can't find the post in the previous thread.
