Drooler (218) Some are low in review points in the long list of those who've entered the raffle, and some are over 100 points. The quality of the reviews varies, too, of course. Anyway, I'm pretty sure that the raffle is intended to be an incentive for people to write reviews.

jd1961 (95) Last week I wrote as many reviews as I could (not casually, I put effort into it) just to see if I could win. I did. I think the prizes should be a random drawing that includes everyone that participated in some way that week.

Denner (233) Well, it seems the activities grow close to the tuesdays.
But I don't think most here at this PU do it for the winnings. The reviews are generally for the good of all. I try to give my veiws and gain from other views.
And by the way, my winnings are used via Amazon to buy books (money/cash from US to Europe is just a hassle).

But, of course - it's fun to win.

And another thing: Comments and replys and so on generate a lot of points compared to reviews, so.....

troglodite (69) I'm sure that some do - but honestly, it really is a good incentive. I join 2-3 sites a month usually, and while I know that my experiences might be helpful, it's easy sometimes to just put off reviewing. However, with the carrot dangling in front of my nose, writing that review moves up the priority list a bit.

At the same time, personally the fact that I might get monetary reward for my work also means that I feel I should do a good job on my reviews. I've never sat down and churned one out in 2-3 minutes, and I'm not saying I would if the money wasn't there, but I feel that I owe it to the site if it's investing a bit of money into my time.

So to sum up that jarbled mess - I don't think many people write reviews just for the reward, but the reward does ensure more frequent and possibly higher quality reviews than there might be if there was no reward.

exotics4me (463) Most of the above members have nailed my feelings. I know that some of us were reviewing before the raffle was even a part of the site. With me, I only have a little time during T-F, so my reviews usually end up right at the end of a raffle period. I work 12 hours on T-F and am out of town one weekend per month. I enjoy talking about the sites and though my preferences are usually limited to glamour/Euro sites, the different reviews have at least helped me join a few sites outside of my usual preference.

The members who post on a lot of replies, polls, I believe are here for the reviewing and just to have some fun with a chance to win a nice prize.

pat362 (367) Call me an optimist, but I'd rather believe that people just want to write reviews to help other people make up their minds on which sites to join, and maybe even more importantly which websites to avoid. I know that a few of the reviews I've read have saved me some dough, because I'd been tempted to join a particular website, but after having read the review I changed my mind

Well, cblodg..
I don't se it as a requirement.
More like Rod Steiger put it in a famous line from the fantastic movie "In The Heat of The Night":
- It's an opportunity you just can't pass by!

To tell you the truth, even if I did have enough points, or replies, or what-have-you I still probably wouldn't bother with the raffle. With the way my luck has been (transmission gone in the car) I still wouldn't win.

Hey. buddy
Sorry to hear that - with the dammed transmission.

Yes, it's nice to have a chance at winning a prize, but it's even better when you've been warned at PU about a site and so there's NO chance you'll get burned by joining it.

SnowDude (214) I wasn't happy about it when the admins came up with the raffle since I felt that would make it all about money, but philosophically I'm kinda in the middle now and subjectively I'm for it since I've won a lot. I probably do try to sneak in some stuff before the deadline on Tuesday, but I never write reviews or comments that I think are crap. In the end for me it is an incentive, but I do wonder about other people. I'd actually say that newbies who write reviews and give a score of 100 are more common and more of a problem.

That's an excellent point Denner dude! I'm sure I've saved more money by not joining crappy sites than I've won in the raffles, that's for damn sure!

nygiants03 (162) I think some do it just because its there and why not, others for the money. I personally don't do it for the money, but its always nice since I'm a broke college student who spends his money on porn and food. I would be contributing to this site regardless of the raffle as I enjoy porn immensely. I don't expect to win anyways, as I have the third most tickets yet have barely won any compared to others. So my answer is: some probably do
