I love the recent addition of the slot machine. Though I haven't played it yet as I am still working on the treasure hunt, it adds a little fun to the site. It's like a game to play just to be able to relax. This will sound odd, but a BINGO type game would be fun and interesting as well. I enjoy BINGO a lot (I'm odd, I know). It could be run the same as the treasure hunt or something. Also, more contests would be nice to see. Just something to make the site a little more active. The offers I believe are great. There is a wide variety, and most approve fairly easy if done properly. The surveys are sometimes hard to qualify for, which can be frustrating, but that has nothing to do with TT's side. I know people have talked about having more cash shopping links, which would be nice, though I understand the point that not many websites and stores have cash back options that you can use. Another thing that I have noticed is that the Buried Treasure offers and Newsletter offers rarely change; therefore, there is a less chance of getting approved. If you don't meet the requirements one time, there's no way to make the requirements next time.

Basically, the site as a whole is very nice.  Much more fun and organized than other sites. I like how there is a separate section for pending offers, not just click it and it becomes pending. The only thing I would like to see is possibly some more games like the slot machine, and some more contests, rather just on the forums, or even like the monthly treasure hunt.

Thanks for your comments.  As far as Bingo goes, just click the "Cash Games" button!  I know it's not the same as having it in-site, but still... you can get your bingo fix there ;)

Regarding contests, we're having a huge referral contest coming up in June!  Over $2000 in prizes will be given away!  Regarding cash shopping links, we are actually currently going through and trying to pull as many new stores in as we can.

I understand that the Buried Treasure and Newsletter Offers can be frustrating.  Unfortunately, we have no control over which offers appear on that page.  It's all handled by a third party that comes up with and implements them.  I will, of course, pass this criticism onto them though.  Thanks again!

I would like to see some Pay To Click ads. Maybe offer .01 or .02 per click, with a maximum of 5 per day or something like that. It adds up over time and something to do while you are waiting for offers to approve.

As Brittmarie stated overall TT is a great site.  I just wandered around the different links clicking to see if there were any constructive suggestions that I could come up with that would help.  Here is one that I thought of:

Is there any way to make doing Buried Treasure less confusing.  I don't know if I'm going to explain this correctly but if you want to do 3 buried treasure offers you click the radio button and hit submit on the first screen and your first BT.  It's the buttons that are confusing.  I have hit the wrong button many times and have been taken to the next offer without completing the previous offer.  Maybe it's just me.   ^_^   And also could it not log you out completely maybe just say something like "You've Completed your Search for Buried Treasure - Waiting on Approval.... Stay Tuned" or something like that.

Also I had thought about a a contest for a big ticket item (PS3, Wii, or something smaller etc.) maybe once a year.  I'm not really a planner so I don't know how to set something like that up but maybe with TT setting the bar as to the minimum you can do to even be eligible for the drawing.

Hmm, the Buried Treasure page is controlled by a third party, so the button structure would not be fixable... however we can control the text that appears at the top.  Would a better explanation of the process be helpful on the first page?  Regarding the logout issue, help me understand what you mean.  Do you mean it logs you out of TT, or the buried treasure page just disappears?

Regarding the contest idea for big ticket items... we'll be giving away a TON of that stuff in June!

Thanks for your notes.

I like this idea and it's something that we have actually been tossing around for a while.  Perhaps if enough members showed interest in something like this, we'd implement it!

I think an instant cashout via Paypal would be useful. I can't tell you how many times I get annoyed from waiting.

We need time to determine if a member is fraudulent.  This is why payouts are processed once monthly.

This is a great thread! I was thinking about this.......and after reading what other TTers have already posted in this thread, I only came up with one other suggestion.

I wish contacting a referral wasn't so difficult sometimes. I notice that people either ignore your request for communication, or do not accept it, but I feel like its because they don't realize how helpful it really could be. After being on the website and visiting the forums, I think that they could realize that it would be good to talk to your referral. I wish that even if they did not accept communication, or ignored the e-mail all together, there was an option to re-submit the request for communication sometime in the future, so that it gives everyone another opportunity.

I will also reiterate what other people have said in this thread, because I do feel that they are good suggestions, also:
-instant cashout. I think it would be great if we could request a payment, rather than having to wait.
-easier to qualify for surveys. I have sometimes gone a week without qualifying.

Overall, TT is an awesome site, and I am VERY glad that I found it! :)

My TT ID: 370844

We'll think about allowing a second chance contact option.  Mainly, we want to make sure not to annoy our members and respect their right to privacy (or seclusion if they desire).

I love this idea.  I know it doesn't seem like much but like you said, it does add up.  It could at least be a few more dollars a month.  Or maybe some paid to read e-mail offers and each member can choose if they want to recieve these e-mails or not to recieve them.

I think something else should be added to the trading hut that can be purchased with pearls.  Although the two new referrals can be helpful, they often result in nothing of use to yourself as most refuse contact anyway.  You could even make it into some kind of monetary reward so that a certain amount of pearls can earn you an 'X' amount of dollars.  This way, you can either take the risk of earning a bunch from new referrals, or you take the safer way out and get a bit of cash.  Just an idea.  Thanks for listening.

TT ID: 118803

We wouldn't allow dollars, but maybe a gold coin exchange so you can pull the slot more often?  Maybe 1 pearl = 3 gold coins?  Would anybody utilize this option?

I like this idea, as well as the other suggestion about pay to click emails. Over time those few cents do add up.

I am sure this option would help a lot of people out. Maybe even increase the entries into the forum treasure hunt.
