I may be wrong, but I was under the impression that the mods/editors, who seem to be the people posting the most sweeps, get a free membership and at one point they were even getting paid. I don't know if that is still the case. I thought I read this somewhere in the forums.

I don't know how it was set up, but I do see certain members posting a lot of sweeps as you say... all anyone has to do is see who's name is on the newly listed sweeps in the thread.

My sub just expired. No notification at all. Apparently I should wait before trying to renew since it appears the owners just don't give a crap. I am really disappointed with Brent, that he would allow this site to deteriorate. Just sad. Oh well, I will follow this thread until it appears something is working again, unless I find something I like better. Honestly, for me, I just like the software for tracking sweeps entries. This is really just pitiful.

A-L, you know how much I appreciate your posts Yes, the 3 or 4 who enter most of the sweeps are on this list. http://forums.online-sweepstakes.com/showgroups.php?
I didn't know if they were paid.

My post where I said you had to be a premium to see was somewhat incorrect. Sweeps are all posted as new premium to begin with and then those that are not premium are moved to general and you can see who posted in general.
jacobm. Please accept my condolences for finding yourself in OLS/PayPal limbo.

You can see some of the sweeps submitted here, it is a core group of people posting those sweeps http://forums.online-sweepstakes.com...splay.php?f=82. The premium sweeps have a similar subforum where you can see the sweeps submitted prior to categorization.

I'm trying to figure out why it doesn't show you as green?

Some people who listed that they are NOT green now are appearing as green on my page, so maybe they are getting the accounts updated? (like jacobm).

I think you're referring to the green dot....that just means they're online. Their name has to be in green. which it isn't.

jacobm's name IS green .... not just the dot, his name.

Thank you for pointing that out correctly jgates8.

He was NOT green this morning, so something is obviously happening.

Brittles is not green and I am wondering if that is due to the PayPal now, or just there were so many payments to process that they haven't gotten back that far.

Sad to see Iím not alone
I renewed my membership just yesterday and it hasn’t upgraded yet I figured I would check out the forums to see what was going on. Sadly I should have read on here first. I have been on OLS since 2005 I believe and I have won many many prizes. I took a short break while I have been watching my grandson full time. I was really hoping to jump back in and rack of the entries again. I get back to premium quickly.

It's nice to see someone has changed to green! Hoping everything escalates and everyone gets their green tonight!
