Hi all,


Ho ho ... no, not yet. But it is time for the November Payback thread to make it's appearance. Slightly early, as I'll be away on holiday for a 4 day weekend (which means we'll be getting started with processing on Tuesday 4th December). We'll then push through the processing as quickly as we can to meet our target dates for Payback payouts. Have a great weekend all, and see (in words) you next week.


So, moving on to the nitty gritty of calculating community payback. Current status is listed below, and I'll provide updates as we tick items off.
