Ciao workers, How to keep your earnings going up. Job strategy about Ciao.

Hello friends. I guess lot of you had noticed in the past days something new is happening in Ciao. First of all, probably you saw your earnings on the site got some decrease. Thats because Ciao increased the "war" against plagiarism and plagiarist, as well as the one against clicking cartel, deleting their accounts and deducting all the earnings generated by their ratings to ALL the members. This can be something good in the long time, for all of us that honestly work there, but at the moment results in a light loss in our earnings. Second, they don't allow anymore the massive messages, you surely discovered that now you can't send a message to ALL your friend as before. That's good too, because in this way was solved the problem of spam. At least I was really tired to receive tons of messages saying "rate my reviews, I'll do the same" or similar. But for lot of us this means you can't say anymore to your friend when you published a new review. So how to let your friends knows you've something new they could like to read? I guess the best and easier solution is: rating their reviews. If anyone check who rated their reviews, they will knows who have something new to read. I think I'm free to visit the profile of the ones whom rated me, and I should be free to decide if I want read and rate some of their reviews too, without be accused to be a member of a clicking cartel. More, if I will visit, every time I enter my Ciao account, 10 new profiles of people that aren't my friends yet, and I found something interesting they wrote, and I read, rate, and add them as friend, I guess this is not against the Ciao rules. Otherwisle should means ciao rules don't allows us to rate. So if everybody check their reviews, and visit the people who rated their reviews, I'm pretty sure nobody needs message others asking for rates, or saying that they rated. Rates talks themselves. And this should be the working strategy we should adopt on Ciao. Not against the rules, against cheaters (who not rated don't get ratings), and allowing ratings received grows everyday. What do you think about it?

You said it well, my friend. It is about time for Ciao to clean up all the mess created by erring members there. In fact, i am wondering why it took the admin a lot of time to do the cleaning up and even allowed this malady to affect the site in the first place. I love Ciao but I really hate reading some reviews which are totally incomprehensible and chaotic. Look, I am not against people who are learning their way with the English language but I don't think Ciao is a practice ground for that. Well, myLot could be that ground lol...

I'm agree with you, also if I know my english is not so good, I always wish my reviews (and discussions and responses) are at least understandables. I've to say that sometimes, reading some reviews written by some native american or native british member, I felt my english is really poor; it's happened I got some problem to understand what they want say.

Yes, you're right. Unfortunately lot of ciao members seems to be not so clever. They think they are smart when they try to cheat other members sending these silly messages like "I already rated one million of your reviews, now you rate me", thinking everyone is an idiot there... But probably they do that because lot of people rate them. Seems not so many people check who rated him to rate their raters back. That's sad because make the job on ciao really hard, when it could be really easy if all the member could understand some simple rules.

Hello Pierone, you're right, the right strategy should be rate the people that rated you. Unfortunately seems lot of ciao members aren't so smart. I published a new review days ago, and rated more than 200 members reviews, thinking they will rate me too. The result is I got 48 ratings only! These so smartless members got a rate for free, but for sure I will no rate them again. So they lose, in the long term, at least 1 rate for each new review they will publish, just because they were too much lazy in rating back who rated them. The true problem is how to identify smart members ;)
