ronbo2010,

Sorry for the confusion. GB PTB is another way of saying GB Powers That Be, which is another way of saying contact the site moderators aka the folks in charge and assigned to straighten out member problems ;0}

Hover or click the 'Help' tab above on the blue bar. 'Contact us' will get you where you need to go. Or click on your inbox and click 'create a new message' which opens up a dialog box set to contact the site moderators, or others. Use the 'Category' drop down box to indicate what type of concern you are writing about.

You may want to spend a few moments gathering your thoughts that will help to explain on what date you noticed your points going awry.

Good luck. It may take a while for a response. They usually address problems by priority.

BTW, I too got double points today for posting gas prices. Not sure what is going on ;0}

Oh, oh, here they go again. Looks like they either activated the double points again or they have another bug. I did not get an email for this either.

This is my summary for today. Point balance without the double points should be 1000 less. Watch it reverse them again and zero out what my 3,225 points legitimately earned.

@teafortwo, are you sure its GB PTB? That member does not have the Moderator title. If he is the right person. How does one contact him? via the Whiteboard? Sorry for all the questions.

ronbo2010?

I suggest you contact the GB PTB and ask them to reinstate your points. They can examine your account and see exactly what happened.

Good luck and have a pleasant Sunday ;0}

I am so pissed today. All of the points I have been accumulating was zeroed out because of the bonus points error. I saved all those points fair and square so I could always buy one each day but all of those were taken away. I only use one 1000 per day and yet I get penalized for an error in the bonus implementation.

It seems the free ticket disappeared with some of the other programming changes.

GrumpyCat from Alabama?

Under the current point & ticket structure, the best advantage is to buy a ticket evrry time you have enough points. That way, when the system resets each night at midnight EST, there will be a free ticket available for harvesting.

If you earn enough points to buy a ticket before you "harvest" your freebie; the freebie offer disappears .....

These are simply my observations and nothing that is paid for or endorsed by anyone else ;0}

Took me a while to figure out this "free ticket" thing as I carry a points balance. How many points do I need to buy the entire day's drawing? :-)

I got my free ticket today and even if I don't mess up and enter gas prices before I get the free ticket I'll undoubtedly get one tomorrow.

The last day I had the possibility of getting three tickets in one day (slightly more than 20% of the time: one free ticket, a second because the 225 daily points for reading the news articles and commenting in message threads accumulated to more than 1000 points, and a third ticket for reporting gas prices) I messed up on the free ticket and only got two tickets that day.
