Some of you may have noticed (ok, have noticed) that the July Points Statement was sent out very late, and only arrived last week. For those who haven’t seen the thread where I explained what happened, it was a simple case of an automated process having been switched off for May and June’s statements (due to payouts and rollover) and then not being turned back on again, but being assumed to be on. We’ve now turned it back on, so the August statements will go out correctly once the points are available for the statements.
Current status of the Payback Calculations is listed below, and I’ll provide updates as we tick items off. We’re expecting all of the community files required to be ready on Monday 7th September, with calculations and audits to take place later that week.
