No response? To my previous reply from last week?
well, it seems so rhetorical that it might have been difficult to think of an answer, or virtually nobody will know if your figures are any more than a guess, and we can't expect staff to be more specific as the details are both confidential and variable from month to month

@sloz. I would try not to get to hung up about what is fair with regards to rewards. If you worked out the hourly rate for forum participation it is quite low, anyway. I happen to think that it is also rewarding in other ways. It is also no more unfair than someone getting their full value out of a goodybag versus someone who doesn't. In both cases the remedy is in your own hands; Spend longer on the forum or use more data, etc. You could even combine the two and spend time on the forum using your handset, subject to it being readable LOL.

I'm with jonmd on this one. I am an active participant on 2 other forums (a m/cycle one and and one from a past life). For me the driver is to help and be helped (does this sound really giffgaff?). The fact that I'm rewarded on this one is a bonus, not a motivator.

That's already happening - it looks like almost all of sloz's posts are in the last few weeks, so it might be safe to say he or she will be in the top band next time and wasn't before. So I can't quite see what the fuss is about.

I fully agree with commsyeo and jonmd. Of course its nice to get rewarded for helping on the forums, but I actually enjoy it anyhow.
It's a good feeling knowing you're helping people and also doing your bit to help giffgaff grow and improve.

I am very pleased with my payback and i think i have been put in the correct band. (medium band) i also agree with what someone posted on page 2 saying that what i have earnt in april has inspired (if that is the correct word) me to do more and consiquently i am on here now writing this very message....
Giffgaff - welcome to the world of inexpensive calls, text, data and a very helpful fun and rewarding community!
Kudos to all !
