Has anyone else noticed that there is no reference at all to prizes, anywhere on the site any more??

Even the testimonials of the first winners are gone.

I guess the prizes are gone!!!!!!!!!!

Why would they send prizes - this should be for fun and then people wouldn't have to 'use the internet to find answers'.

I would prefer NO prizes and just having fun on this site.

I was told that I was a winner of a certificate for September. I received nothing. I sent a message a few days ago and was told that they were running behind on distributing the certificates. I can understand it there is a $ problem with Sploofus. I would just like to be told either way whether the certificate will be coming or not. I can accept "No". I just would like a real answer.

Running behind sounds like a real answer to me. someone else who wins a lot posted earlier that sometimes they come late, but they always come. I haven't recieved mine yet either, but I'm not worried. Clearly there are changes going on, and I'm sure it will all sort itself out.

I received my August prizes about a month after the email telling me I had won it.

I couldn't care less about the value of the prizes.

The point of my message was not the lateness of the prizes but the lack of any mention of them on the site any more.

There was an announcement a few months ago of the awards but now there is nothing on the site about it....

In all honesty, I think Sploofus should do away with the prizes. I think it would help with a lot of the problems (quizzes getting bumped off the front page so quickly, etc). We are here to have fun and if by some miracle I did win one month, I would rather Sploofus keep the money and help out the site even more. I like the idea of a Sploofus shirt or some quirky ad swag to have for me to flaunt around.

You just might be right. I remember a slogan like "be smart, win stuff" or something similar. Saw it thousands of times and still can't remember it--so much for advertizing.

Well, if the prizes are gone, so be it. I doubt it will hurt much. At least it will eliminate some puzzling behavior. My favorite was a member a few months ago who was trying desperately to win the (pretty small) prize for most author quiz points. Said member kept emailing myself and many others complaining that we weren't giving the quizes high enough scores.

That still puzzles me. Those kinds of people are just too tense, too uptight. Just mellow out, don't worry, be happy. (I think a song is coming on)...

I am also in favor of doing away with the prizes because I have WEBtv instead of a computer. My chances of winning a prize are slim and/or none due to the speed. If Sploofus wanted to do something to impress me, they could offer a lifetime supply of cat food for my five "furry children."

Sploofus could even offer dollars to go toward the cost of a Gold membership. $15 for first $10 for second $5 for third. Just a thought.

newportwife76, I love this idea. Use the "prizes" as credit towards your renewal of gold membership. I too won in September (it still amazes me that I actually did win LOL) and have heard nothing, but then I often forget to scroll down and check that box.

I love love love the idea of prizes being credit toward Gold Memberships! That is something that I would definately work for! Nice thinking.... your thoughts Mr Sploofus? Maybe we should take it to the polls!
