Decreased points at Platinum Lounge

November 7, 2008 11:50pm CST
I am so much upset with Platinum Lounge that I want to delete my account here. I have over 160,000 points then when I check the site today i have only about 16,000 points. It was reduced to a tenth part. I was terribly upset.

Don't be too worried normally PL clear all members points at the beginning of every month so everyone has equal chance of getting paid. Last month for a change they said users would keep their rank and points would be recycled but would decrease. Don't be too dis-heartened...if you feel like your not getting anywhere next month the points will clear and your get a fresh chance to start over. I remember when I first joined this site towards month end...didn't know how payment worked and that I had to move up a rank to qualify. However the following month i've qualified and have already been paid by this site.

I believe this is a new thing they are doing. Rich is cycling out the points every month so that the newer users will also have a chance to climb up in the ranks and earn something. The good thing is that you will get to keep your current rank. Just continue to post there and don't worry too much about it.

There is nothing to be upset of. They have been telling that they will reduce your points. And what they did divided it with 100. So you have one tenth of your points. I think you have not lost your rank. Recently i have demoted to lounge varsity from lounge starter. Now i have to gain that rank again to get paid. I think they are doing this to give every member to earn from there.
