    I've seen it mentioned before by several regular members of the forum so I thought I'd make a poll to see what others think about the subject.
    Since there have only been 2 winners the last 8 months in the surprise me contest I think either the way the winner is picked should be changed so only active members are eligible to win or it should be replaced with a different contest like has suggested.
    1. Should how the winner is chosen for the Surprize me contest be changed or the contest replaced? (29 votes)
        Yes, change it so only active members are eligible to win.
        59%
        No, it's fine the way it is.
          7%
        Replace it with a different contest.

    I voted for that only the active members should be eligible to win otherwise makes no sense to keep the contest and award ghosts that don't even bother to claim the prize.

    Another thing I thought of in the past was if the winner doesn't claim their prize give the points away to another member or even better members. If for example the winner doesn't claim their 200 point prize give 10 random members who used the site the day before 20 points each or 5 members 40 points each. Even if the amount won is smaller I think having multiple winners and having only those who used the site recently eligible to win would make more members happy and get more interested in the contest. It potentially could lead to more part time users coming to the site everyday instead of just a couple times a week as well.

    Turn it into a check-in Snowball draw that way
    you will have to check the page every time you
    want into the draw to win the prize!

    Someone would need to define active....Attempted at least one survey in the past 30 days? 20? 7?

    My name is on there as missed, but the day I was picked, I mention in ShoutMix, and I emailed support. I did eventually get my points. Ghulam was picked and I know he mention in Shoutmix that day. I don't know if Ghulam ever received the points, I know there was a complaint or two about that in Shoutmix.

    If points are not claimed add them up over a week..month..do one of those "random" draws like you do and pick 10 "random" users...
    Also every survey completed per month should earn you one entry into a monthly draw...

    - I guess the way I would define active are those who are active on the forum, daily contests including FB, I'm sure I forgotten something besides of course taking surveys. If I recall correctly when this contest first started people were picked by being active on the forum, and contests.
    Even if someone isn't active on the forum or contests and just doing surveys you would think they would check the contest.

    I participate doing surveys, in the forum, and in the contests here on Univox. Some of us don't have or want a social media account and I don't think anyone should have to join another site (Facebook or Twitter) in order to be considered an "active" member here on Univox.
    I do have a Twitter account, but rarely use it.
  • charsocal

    - I totally agree with you about the social media. I was just trying to think about anything that defines "active member". Even if a person is not active on the forum,etc... they are considered active as long as they are doing surveys, but how can there be soooo many misses on the contest or are they active and just don't care or just don't know about the contest. Clueless.

    ..thanks I voted for active members be eligible..I been thinking about this too, and I was also thinking that the active members shouldn't have to click on any special surprise me button/link, cause we're already attempting many surveys a day and "Admin" can see that who is active and who isn't I would think, so we ALL should be automatically entered each "Day" we are active, so we automatically get a chance to be surprised, not just "active in general" I think, cause some can be active, but still not for days or weeks, but that would be considered an active member still(this way, the odds would even be better for those who are only on for the day being active to win!) ..I'm tired, but I hope that made sense..lol dodadoby :)

    Having everyone who completed a survey entered into the sweepstakes contest eligible to win the for the next day whether or not they clicked on the sweepstakes/take survey button is also a good idea. The button doesn't work on certain browsers or devices so some members are unable to enter even though they want to.

    As far as the surprise me contest goes maybe they could make it where to be entered for each days drawing you just have to attempt a survey the day before. That or have a button/link on the contest page that you click on each day to enter. Having all 713,000+ members eligible to win when probably only a few thousand use the site in a given week is obviously going to lead to a lot of the winners not claiming their prize.

    Admin - First of all - Thank you for all you do for us members - it is truly appreciated !! I keep trying to take the survey for the sweepstakes, but it still never let's me. I also noted (I hate to use names, but Marvette Johnson - and I am happy for Marvette) has won 23 of the last 100 sweepstakes drawings - not sure how that happens unless hardly anyone is able to complete the highest converting survey of the day? Any information on how this continually happens would be appreciated by all I am sure :-) Have a great day and again thank you so much for your efforts and support!!

    We do understand the issue and trust taken it equally seriously, but as per our finding its more of technical than intentional. We are reminding or our respective technical team to adhere to the issue and provide us the fair solution. Hopefully it will get resolved super quick. THanks

    I have a question about Surprise Me. Some times I click on the package and there is no name there. How often is it posted? or has someone claimed it for the day already?
  • Donna

    I know for sure that there is no name posted/drawn on Saturdays and Sundays. Once in a while they miss a day here and there during the week.

    The results are totally manipulated by univox. Questions are not answered. Calls are not returned. The bot fails in every way.
    It is a good way to waste your time.
