This is an important $200 Tuesdays update.
It is with much regret that we must announce the end to the $200 Tuesday weekly raffle. The final drawing will be 28-May-2013. After that, there will be no further raffle drawings for the foreseeable future.
It will not come as a surprise to anyone that, like many industries, the online porn industry has taken a hit during these hard economic times. Over the last few years, our operating costs have continued to climb dramatically and revenues have simply not kept up. For this reason, we're having to take a hard look at all of our expenses if we are to continue to operate. We're making cuts to a number of areas of our operation but the one that will be the most noticeable to our users is that we can no longer hold the weekly raffle.
Over the last six years we've given away over 63 thousand dollars (over $64,000 at the time of the last raffle) and we were happy to do it. We believe it was unique in the industry but to us, it was a tangible demonstration of our appreciation for users' submissions. Though we continue to appreciate your participation, we are no longer able to reward that with a weekly drawing.
Over the years, a number of our users have expressed that, while the prizes were nice, they were not the main reason for your participation. Rather, there was a genuine interest in sharing the info, both good and bad, that you found for the pay sites you joined which allows you to get better value for the money you spend on porn. We hope that you will continue to see that as a good reason to participate here.
As always, thank you for your ongoing support of PornUsers.
