With temperatures in Greater Vancouver on their way to 38C / 100.4F today, the heat in your house with the Univac 5000 running with all its vacuum tubes must be horrendous. Get working the windows and doors to block the sun but get a small breeze anywhere you can. Be sure to Dial 911 before passing out.

Be thankful for the invention of A/C. Used to dislike it in my twenties. So glad to have it in mid-life.

Re: Top Contributors - July 2021

@darlicious   could the "lower total payout"  be a factor of the "improvements"  at PM?  ie fewer issues/bugs, fewer people posting problems, getting answers from Chatbot etc?  thus if the number of active users (people posting issues) is less  then the rewards will be less.  

 

back in the day i recall increases in the announcements typically coinciding with hard to beat/exciting  promos, when PM was being proactive the way not reactive... but those were the days....

According to the Top Contributor announcements, here are the Total Solutions per month, with 1%, 5% and 10% numbers that were posted in those announcements as well.

 

The amount of members being rewarded do seem to correlate to the Total Solutions.

 

Is this related to few bugs, fewer people posting, less Public Mobile customers, other?

You're missing a column from April/20-6, May/20 thru Dec/20-5, Jan/21 to present-9.

 

@mimmo 

Yes that can account for lower payouts but while the top I % and some of the top 5% produce numbers = help quotient that is the same if not more than before pm shrinks the top badge level numbers with a trickle down effect......except of course the numbers at the very top the stay the same despite the shrinking amount of help offered by half of that number. So I suppose if pm has to shrink it's rewards then it has to come from the bottom up....to the top 1%. Where it stops.

@darlicious oh, that's what you meant !  👍

 

Yeah, but they are a given, fixed monthly reward, so I didn't include that.

3 years ago, CSA(called moderator back then) wait time was up to 1 week.  There was a Uber driver without phone service for a week on my first day on this community.  I was having second thought about joining PM.  The $25 one time refer-a-friend credit for the referrer and the referee promo kept me here.  

 

My first community reward was a 10% badge after 4 days on this community learning and helping members with issues.  PM has made lots of improvements to get to this point with short wait time from CSA support. 

 

3 years ago, I did not recommend PM service for running a business or someone's job depending on a working phone.  The Uber driver taking an unscheduled 1 week off is an example.  I have no issue to recommending PM service to anyone now.

I still won't advise Full Time Uber driver depends on PM.  The Autopay is still an issue.  Yes, I understand the Hybrid model is great, you save $2 and you make sure you get your service.  

 

But many people, once they setup Autopay, and another automatic payment with another other services, they will depend on Autopay to work 100%.  Cannot blame them for dependent on that.  After all, this is what automatic payment is for. 

 

(it's a different issue if people forgot to update their credit card expiry date.. it's totally the user's fault if they forgot)
