Payout changes for May 2006

Every month we calculate the advertising income and try to pay 50% to
the members. Unfortunately our traffic and income for the month of
April shows that we have to change the payouts for the month of May to
the following:

$20 (400 credits) for the first place in any contest

$12 (240 credits) for the second place in any contest

$8 (160 credits) for the third place in any contest

(Powerball contest will have the double jackpots of the above)

$0.05 (1 credit) per entry, no matter whether it wins any trophies.
(If it does win any of the trophies it gets respective jackpot credit
winnings added too)

$0.05 (1 credit) per caption submitted to any entry in an active
contest (which has not finished yet)

$0.05 (1 credit) for a voting star if you also voted on every entry

$0.05 (1 credit) per comment submitted to any entry in an active
contest

In the beginning of June we'll announce June payment structure based
on the income site generated in May. If you want to help site get
traffic and income, please spread the word about FN among your friends
and relatives, encourage them to spread the word, and post links to
our site from any pages/websites.
We hope to return to higher pay structure soon, but again everything
depends on the traffic the site receives.
Please note that earnings already made are unaffected by the current
payout structure change.

I think it's worth mentioning that FN does not have an entry fee associated with contest entries and the way Newsy has been creating the pay-outs for contests could almost be considered a profit sharing plan for the site.

I think he should be commended for his aggressive and unique way he runs this site.

So come on people! Tell everyone and anyone you know about FN!!

I had one guy join up a while ago- (His name was "OPFlash", anyone remember him?) He doesn't want to chop any more he says. (Can't understand why.) Though.. Mashby says that OPFLash has been spending an awful lot of time hanging out at the forest preserve with his guy friends, throwing a frisbee around in tight shorts and listening to The Village People. Not that there is anything wrong with that kind of behavior. No-wait. Yes there IS.

Kudos to NewsMaster, that ... y beast.

I think it is good news, personally I like FN to be less money oriented the way it was. But I understand that you need prizes to attract choppers.

You do an excellent job Newsy.
