I WAS JUST WONDERING SOMETHING.......

Out of the 6,788 people here (according to the numbers at my commander center) who take and write quizzes how many are actual Gold Members?
I'm just curious....

Based on the results of the "Gold Members Only" polls taken recently, I'd say there are close to 300 or so.

Wow...that blows my mind (not really that difficult to do).

I will resort to my less than stellar math skills again. I think at $12 per 6 months that equals $2 per month...divide that by 30 (now the fuzzy part starts)...which equals $.06 cents per day.

So logically the next question is why?

Ok...and at $2 per month(433 members) ...Justin is making about $800 per month...that is just not right.

Maybe we should all get together and pitch in to get him a nice GC for Christmas as a thank you gift!

I think the red, white and blue members are some kind of federal employees. I know when I first joined there was something about these members - they either got a free membership or some thing like that. Maybe someone with a better memory than mine can remember???

Google knows everything...

It was before I became a member, but sploofus used to be sponsored by webfederalservice.com and had a special membership category called "Red, White and Blue" for federal employees who joined sploofus from that site.

It appears to not be that way anymore... ?

Darn - you mean if I had joined sooner I would have a Red, White and Blue membership - I am a Federal Employee - I like Red, White and Blue. Darn, Shucks, awwww Pickles.

I am a red, white and blue member and it is basically a gold membership. I think we got a small break on the price of a gold membership. It was only a couple of dollars, but I think this year we have to pay the new price, which is fine by me. I really LOVE this site, so keep up the good work Sploofus!!!!!!!!

Red, White and Blue members came because WebFederalServices or whatever they are called agreed to sponsor Justin. The owners used to be very active on this site but in order not to embarass them, I will not reveal their names. They agreed to sponsor Sploofus, Justin put up banner ads and gave them A LOT of good PR and then they just blew him off. They never paid him (or if they did, they didn't pay him the full amount) and they ignored all his emails and phone calls. It led to a serious situation sometime last year when we weren't sure if Sploofus was going to make it.

At that time, based on the info that came down on the Hotwire it was my belief that Sploofus had been bought by another company but I don't know the full details about that.

I still can't believe that the people that agreed to sponsor Sploofus and then treated Justin that way have the audacity to show themselves around here.

Well someone did mention the government. Are you still surprised?

What does the government have to do with it? A Google search on "web federal services" turns up poker sites. So you can be pretty sure it's no legitimate business.

Before my misinformation gets out of hand, My search was on webfederalserviceS.com and what was mentioned here was webfederalservice.com without the "s". That seems to be a site that says "Working with unions, non-profits and government agencies nationwide. A private enterprise not affiliated with any government agency." which says it helps federal employees maximize their pensions and benefits.

mskillian, I have to respond to your post. Maybe I am taking it personal because I paid for a red, white and blue membership as opposed to a gold one. I'm not sure who you are directing your post at but I feel since I was the only one (with a red, white and blue membership) who responded to the previous post you were directing it at me.
I did not have anything to do with whatever transpired between the owners of webfederalservice and Justin. I did hear about it and was sorry to hear what happened. I feel I paid my membership and have every right to show my face around here!

I didn't mean to start a war here over the red,white and blue memberships...all I asked was a simple question and it sort of got out of hand. I'm sorry if anyone is offended by this or by my asking the question.

Vicki, You didn't start it. I just answered your question and mskillian was the one who posted the "they have the audacity to show their face around here." I was just defending myself against him not you.

BTW I love your quizzes!!!

Thanks Sandy...glad you like my quizzes. I know you were defending yourself but I feel like I opened a can of worms or something by being curious and asking a question....
