AdBux Now Forcing It's Members To Complete Offers..What The Heck?

I've been a member of AdBux for a little over a year now. Throughout that period I have been witness to many updates, upgrades, and changes, and possibly they could hold the record for so many changes in one! After just checking my mail I get a notice from them stating that if members don't complete at least one offer every 14 days they will consider that member inactive and delete that person's account. I have never been a very big fan of 'paid to signup' offers, since a great majority of them come along with a great quantity of spam from companies you have no real interest in. Yes I could very well open another free e-mail account with the numerous e-mail providers out there, but as it is I have a hard enough time keeping up with the ones that I do, and for the most part I shouldn't have to. This is not the first PTC site, that I have witnessed an admin put themselves on high and require members to do something they weren't originally comfortable with to begin with. I've heard a record number of people getting kicked from sites for something as simple as not using a forum or for not posting an ad. To me these are things best left for the user to decide whether or not they want to participate in them, what are your thoughts on this issue?

I just recevied that email too! What a load of bull! They keep chaning things and changing things plus I have been waiting on a payment since December and now that they changed my earnings to points I don't qualify for payment. And now the unproffesional style of do offers or dont' get paid bye bye adbux!

Like you I had been awaiting payment from AdBux, then they switched it over to the points (or share) system and like you I now don't qualify either for payment. Luckily I never upgraded on that site, so saying goodbye to it won't bring a tear to my eye, just a shame how they are now treating their members, since it's the member's whom have made that site successful. Without the efforts of it's members it would have been nothing more than maybe a hobby site.

I couldn't have said it better! I was reading the mail then I checked the site and the offers available for Italy and NO WAY I will be doing any of them. I do not download crap on to my computer and the survey sites I already joined years ago. So after being a member right from day one looks like I shall also lose thw balance in my account too as there is no way of cashing it out. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL to say the least!
