Why is there a Microgaff - and why after writing to them 9 months ago am I not yet listed?

Its just a little clique and should be ended if there is not reasonable access for other members.

As with all ideas about microgaff - as it is independant and member run, this is not something Giffgaff can consider or implement and so is being set as not suitable.

There has to be the correct amount of demand for microgaff I guess. As it costs members to send out sims. So if everybody was to do this there would be people losing out cash as not every sim gets activated so this would not make it worth anybody sending out the sims. There needs to safe guards to cover members costs at the end of the day

@martinwallace - I asked 9 months ago - so congratuations on getting in!

I wonder if its only people who are in it that think its OK to keep it as a clique?


How often do you get to send out sims from microgaff?

it should be opened up for all members equally

not closed and kept for priviledged few. It's not very community minded this little clique of UNFAIR earners.

the sooner giffgaff act to restore the EQUALITY the better.

I didn't have to ask I just signed up on the microgaff site and that was that I started receiving requests, no need to congratulate me, I didn't do anything special. I get requests everyday.

Eventually it will be disbanded anyway so don't fret. The day is coming that most new phones will be micro Sim and then the current system won't cope and gg will offer them straight from the factory. Mark my word it will happen

I have said on more than one occasion that I would prefer a system where microgaffers are ALL active forum contributors. Anyone who made 50 posts and got 20 kudos, signed up and we've never heard from again are, I feel, exploiting the situation. I fully support George and others who are core to the Community to be admitted. However it seems this viewpoint wasn't generally agreed with. But for me it would feel fairer that any and all useful and active community forum contributors get to participate if they wish to.

>no it should not be closed.< Well if it isn't there should be a fairer way of sharing the recruits amongst the rest of the forum community!

>I'm getting really fed up of microgaffers getting all the hatred from the community it's not up to us, so stop blaming us For what its worth I think green was right to close it until he had tIme to sort things out.< It's not a case of blaming members of microgaff, it's the system the members belong to! It's unfair on the rest of the community. That's the issue!
