Mon Feb 27, 2023 11:02 am March 2023 - Expired Prizes - Monthly Giveaway!
Since 1st August 2022 we implemented a new rule (announced in June 2022) that any prizes for members that have not yet been paid (either because they do not have a valid Payment Method OR they had not reached the minimum $20 required for a payout) will expire IF the member has not logged in for 2 years or more.
This is so we can release these funds for prize money to be paid to Active members (both new and existing!)
Every month on 1st I will check for any such prizes and will Expire them and add them to our *Total Expired Prizes Pot* .. currently at $263 (as at 1st March 2022).
I have decided to even this out over 12 months and will take whatever the previous months Total Expired Prize Pot was on 1st and divide this by 12 to give our Current Month Expired Prize Pot.
Our Current Month Expired Prize Pot is ($263 / 12) = $22 in prizes!
Each month we will have a different theme / challenge for the contest
