September 2009 - Site Modifications
We have made some modifications to our site, most notably the home page and we have changed what we are offering in our Golden Membership advertising package.
November 2003 - Changes
From now on points will only be used for advertising, this is to secure the financial future of and so we can keep offering paid E-mails at rock bottom prices.
September 2002 - Payments Delayed
this month will be delayed by 7 days. We could not check on user accounts to
process payouts because of server timeouts.
September 2002 - Idle Users Deleted
the past month we have been deleting inactive users. Last month we started
deleting accounts that have not tracked paid email links within a 90 day period.
We are now starting to delete accounts that have not set their interests or
updated their account information. We have warned all members countless times
and this is the final warning. Next month we will start deleting accounts that
have not tracked paid email clicks for 30 days. Referrers may notice a change in
their downline after users have been deleted.
the point rate looks set to drop. We sent 4 Share A Sale affiliate program
adverts this month and the revenue from that altogether was just over $1. This
means that if we base the point value on that one incident, 2,000 points will be
worth 5 cents. If we deleted all non participating members, each person would be
getting regular Pay Pal payments monthly. Unfortunately things are not that easy
as incentive signups are not allowed. If you're interested in a program, please
We have also experienced a
high volume of cheaters, located in Korea, and China. If cheating from these
areas continues, we will only accept English speaking countries into the
August 2002 - Points Conversion Change
month we announced that the point value would be 5 cents, for 100 points.
Unfortunately, some members complained so we are seriously considering about
removing the conversion to cash altogether. Remember, points were never intended
to be converted to cash, and if this value is going to cause upset, we would
rather remove it. The point value has decreased further, making 125 points worth
5 cents. Those who requested conversions have had their points converted at the
old value. For those who say it took ages to earn 100 points, we had many
paid-to-click items at 1 point per click, earning some members 12 points per
day. The values of the points in the paid-to-click area have been changed.
August - Redemptions/Unsubscriptions/Support Email
have been having technical problems with our email, and do not have the emails
from the last 7 days. If you contacted us within that time frame, please resend
your email to us.
August - Gold/Silver Members Read!
This is very important if you have purchased a gold or silver membership from us in the past.
We came back online last month, with a completely new system. We need to make sure that each member has had their account upgraded. You need to login to your account, and check the status of your account.
Look for "Gold Member Bonus Referrals".
If this status says "YES" then your account has been upgraded correctly.
If this status says "NO" and you definately did purchase a gold/silver membership from us in the past, you need to mention this in the "" section of the Paradise Hits Forum. We are having problems with our email, so each gold member affected MUST post in our section at http://www.paradisehits.com/cgi-bin/ikonboard/ikonboard.cgi.
If you bought a silver membership, you will be upgraded to gold free of charge.
If you did not buy any membership package from us, then this does not affect you.
7th August - Cheaters Beware!
We sent out a 100 paid email campaign this week, and were
alerted when there were more than 100 clicks. After checking, there was not a
problem found with the system, but cheaters were found. These cheaters attempt
to change the numbers in our paid email links, getting paid for emails that were
NOT sent to them. This is considered cheating, and we set up a traps to catch
those cheaters out. Anyone found attempting to get credit for paid emails that
they were NOT sent, will be deleted from the program without warning.
29th July 2002 - Points to Cash redemptions:
has had several requests from certain
members, about how much points are worth. At the beginning, we were going to
make points redeemable for advertising only, because we had feared that the
point rate would be far too low, making members angry.
After further consideration we have decided to pay what
you have earned, by handing back the amount of revenue earned from points. If
you wish to see the point value rise, members should participate more. We are
not going to ask, or enforce further participation, we are leaving this for
members to decide.
The current points value right now for 100 points is 5
cents. The point value will be reposted on 29th August.
