    Question Photo Payment Change

    Hey everyone, in an effort to give more users a chance in earning money with uploading content we decided to increase our photo approval 2x. This means we will approve double the amount of photos going forward, but we are going to lower the payout down to $5. So in essence, nothing changes on our end, but now more users will make money (it will be spread out more evenly).

    We have thought long and hard about this, and we feel its the best course of action. But before we go ahead and make this change, we want to ask our users...

    If you want to keep it the same, I'd really like to hear why? All logic suggests spreading out the payouts to more users and approving more content is the best route. So I'm really curious to the voters who want to keep it the same.

    I'm very sorry but I really don't understand a word of that..... it seems that what you are suggesting is that whilst you will 'approve' double ~ it will be your decision which ones get approval ~ and those who are already getting approval will have the payout dropped to $5 ~ maybe I'm getting too old here ~ but all it seems to me is that you are cutting the reward to $5...and saying that you will approve double....hell thats a bloody clever way to say that you are not paying out the same for photo's

    Hey Ramford, it looks like I was not been clear enough (sorry). Let me give you an example...

    CURRENTLY: Jokeroo approves 5 photos per day, and pays out $50 (5x$10=$50)
    PROPOSED: Jokeroo approves 10 photos per day, and pays out $5 (10x$5=$50)

    By approving 10 photos per day, there will be a lot more approved content and more of chance for more users to make money. Hope this clarifies it for you.

    It doesn't matter that much to me. Obviously, $10 is better than $5, but I'm posting to share with my friends, not to make money. Also, with PayPal being to only way to be paid, I won't be paid, anyway. However, the ones that come to the forum looking for their money may be upset. There are some that seem to regard posting a few pics their way to earn a living.

    BTW...Thank you VERY much for asking. I mean it! It is so nice to think that the forum members count a little bit.

    I understand you guys are running a business so you don't want to increase your payables.
    Like MT said, I'm sure there will be some, that all they do is submit content, may get upset.

    In all fairness, those posters are the ones driving traffic here. Maybe a poll on the main page, for those users, would be more accurate.

    Again, like MT said, most of us in the forums are here for each other and the laughs so you probably won;t get accurate data in here.

    Myself, I'm fine with the payout only being $5 if I have double the chance of getting approved.


    If you can't tell by now I agree with everything MT said.

    I also thank you for taking the time to ask us

    I am most grateful Jokaroo for the clarification ~ as you are well aware ~ posting for money is not something I am interested in ~ and have already forwarded my instructions to you ~ should I EVER get to any level where a sum is available ~ it was purely that I couldn't get the gist of your original post ~ that certainly makes it most clear now ~ thank you.

    As Hortysir said, you need to find a way of polling those on the front page. The only time the forums receive a visit from the majority of front pagers is to post a "where is my money?" question.

    double the confirmed uploads is the best, the wealth needs to be spread around. at the end of the day there is no change for jokeroo, but getting more users to make money (like me) is better.

    Now please don't chopped my head off here ~ it's just an observation that you've been a member for two years ~ have 40 posts ~ and to be fair...wealth isn't spread around ~ it's something that you have to earn.....I'm not saying that what you posted is wrong or incorrect ~ but as 'we' on the Roo forum haven't seen that much of you ~ I was just passing a comment ~ and as I say there's no slight intended.

    You don't get a check sent anymore, Steven...You have to open a PayPal account and it is deposited there.

    Steve is right! Paypal is gouging.
    The only way around it is to send it as a "gift".
    Cash transfers on PayPal are expensive to the recipient.

    It not only costs, but it is often hacked. Nothing I earn is worth the risk.
