I'm sorry that you didn't think the rewards were meaningful. We tried to provide a good mixture of Webroot.gifts and moderator permissions.
Lastly, no worries. Anna will reach out to you today regarding your sticker.
I'll anxiously await my sticker. I'm movin on up! :D Now, I'll have to figure out where I'm going to stick it!
Sorry for being so direct. I'm sure there are others who will flame me and strongly disagree with me about this, but that's OK.
But on a serious note, the stickers have actually been really popular at events, with employees, etc. so we wanted to share the love with our VIPs. We definitely appreciate all your efforts on the Community and will continue to think of the best ways to reward folks.
And in the meantime, we’ll keep your sticker right here in case you ever change your mind. :D
Akim, please give my sticker to DavidP. 😃
I have moderated large websites and spent a lot of uncompensated time doing so. I did it for years. The websites benefited measurably from my efforts ... I did not, other than the satisfaction of knowing that I helped others. The owners of those websites exploited the moderators. While the website owners benefited substantially from the uncompensated efforts of the moderators, they did not reciprocate. This is not to say that I was expecting anything ... I was not. But in all fairness, it should have happened. Consequently, I resigned my positions as moderator.
Admittedly, I am sensitive about this issue and it has, unfortunately, spilled over to Webroot. I am in no position to make a judgment about how fairly Webroot treats its moderators, or its major contritutors, because I do not know all of the arrangements made with those folks, financial or otherwise.
I do feel, however, that any company that benefits significantly from the efforts of its uncompensated moderators or its major contributors has a moral obligation to reciprocate, in a substantial way. This is particularly true if there is a demonstration that the efforts of the uncompensated moderators or major contributors manifests itself in the form of increased sales.
I trust this clarifies my intentions.
I hope you accept this explanation. if you are not so inclined, then please treat it as an apology.
