Jackpot changes

The current revenue-cost cashflow of the site shows that we can not continue to set the same jackpots for the future contests. Thus, starting today December 6, 2006 we are changing the jackpots and other rewards to the following:

$5 (100 credits) for the first place in any advanced contest

$3 (60 credits) for the second place in any advanced contest

$2 (40 credits) for the third place in any advanced contest

$1.5 (30 credits) for the first place in any apprentice contest

$0.9 (18 credits) for the second place in any apprentice contest

$0.6 (12 credits) for the third place in any apprentice contest

$0.05 (1 credit) per entry in any contest (advanced or apprentice), 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

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

The change will take effect starting from the contest #1242.
This is a necessary step to keep the site operational and at least somewhat profitable. We may be able to increase the jackpots to the previous levels if we can afford it in the future months.

Well, it has been said many times before. Most of us don;t chop for the jackpots so doing whatever it takes to keep afloat is OK.

If there is any thing we can do, just give a shout.

Too bad! It was a good little incentive while it lasted.

I'd been thinking, anyway, that I'd take a break. The last few months I've had so much fun playing with you all, but soon I've a couple of trips coming up (it's work for me, not play!) and lots to do before I can go.
I may come in and vote now and then, but you won't see me much before February.
Very happy holidays to all you friendly freaks, see ya later

In your reflection what do you see? False fault or a masterpiece? But a masterpiece starts with a single stroke and empires start in an open field.

Midian puts on his reading glasses...


Well, back in my younger days... beyond walking to school both ways in 3 feet of snow, uphill both ways, I joined Freakingnews...
I had been chopping diligently at another site where I payed to play. I was amazed when i came here and found that FN PAYED their members to chop, caption, enter, and... if you Won, you got $5.! No money for 2nd or 3rd.... Since that time, we've seen two jackpot increases, and two decreases... an ebb and flow. Most of us chop because we love it, most of us chop here because we love the community. The $ is really just icing on an already tasty cake.

well that sound so sad, but as Midian said; i become from a site wich i have to paid even to get the trophiy, no money no trophy even u get the 1st place over another 1000 players. So it is so sad, but acceptable, almost for those who chop for fun and knowing some great freaking friends at this awsome site. The only problem is tha i said before that i would cash out my credit when i get my 1st million, but mmmmm in that way it would took me 4 times more time to get it, so Newsy get my check ready .

The important thing here as Keb said is keep this great place working.
