Gold Fast-Track Member status update

Advancing from Silver to Gold Fast-Track membership is as easy as meeting the basic FT qualifications and setting up a minimum 1500 VP Standing Order in your first 10 days with SFI. Beginning March 31, 2015, maintaining that qualifying Standing Order each month will also be a requirement for keeping your Gold FT membership and sporting the gold Fast-Track badge.

Gold Fast-Track members should take a moment now and ensure they will have a current Standing Order of 1,500 VP or more for March. Affiliates who do not have a qualifying Standing Order by the March 31st deadline will permanently lose their Gold FT status and will revert to Silver FT status and badge.

Knockout Trivia is back!

screenshot_14Cheaters knocked us down, but they did NOT knock us out!  We’re fighting back!  Bam!

Today we are pleased to relaunch our very popular game, Knockout Trivia. Knockout Trivia will feel and play almost the same as before, but there are a few changes:

1. We are using the same model as Card King in regards to entries.  You can now play Knockout Trivia up to 15 times maximum per day.  The first two entries each day will be free.  The next ten entries will cost 1, 2, or 3 TCredits.  And the final three entries require an EZ Express token to play.

2. Because there is no 100% guaranteed method to eliminate the form of cheating that caused us to temporarily take down Knockout Trivia, this Eager Zebra game no longer has a Zackpot.  With no significant financial incentive to cheat, it is our hope that cheating will subside and people will play the game in the spirit intended.  Of course, there are still some great reasons to play, including:

  • Fun, educational, and great to relieve stress!
  • Multiple games every hour–just 10 minutes between games!
  • Earn unlimited Member Rewards Points (5 MRP for each TCredit used)!
  • Earn trivia points with each question you answer correctly and rule the Trivia Points Leaderboard!
  • Dominate the Top Player Leaderboard with Knockout Trivia wins and runner-up finishes!
  • Earn awesome badges for your mantel!
  • Help your country win the gold medal on the Trivia Points Leaderboard!
  • SFI affiliates also earn 1 Action VersaPoint with each game entry (does not include free entry games)!  Max. 200 Game AVP/mo.

AND…all game winners now earn a free bonus entry for the Daily Crown drawing.

Welcome back, Knockout Trivia!  And thank you to everyone for your patience while Knockout Trivia was away.

Your help needed at the Forum

logo-forum_lgThe new SFI Forum has been a tremendous success.  Participation is at an all-time high and its value as a resource for finding and sharing information has never been better.  We are so very pleased!

There is one area, however, where the Forum really needs your help.  That is in regards to our Forum Guru position.  You see, The Forum Guru system is supposed to identify the 200 best contributors at the SFI Forum.  So when you see a post by a Forum Guru, you should be able to trust its content and know that the information is accurate, correct, and actionable.

But this has only been partially successful so far because not enough people are clicking on the “like” button (thumbs-up button) when they read a good post–which is how Forum Gurus are determined.

Please understand that the Forum Guru is not a popularity contest! And treating it like it is harms SFI and harms your business, too–by giving people the badge who really should not be displaying it!

When your new affiliates visit the Forum looking for assistance and they get wrong answers from those displaying a Forum Guru badge, that’s not good for them, for you, or anyone else in SFI.   

So, what we’d like everyone to pledge to do is two-fold:

  1. Whenever you see a good post (especially one that provides accurate information concisely and in an easy-to-understand way), click the “thumbs-up” button!  It takes only a second!
  2. NEVER click the “thumbs-up” button on a post that is poorly written, incomplete, or that adds no value.  They may be your friend, but unless you want to harm your own business, you should NOT give them a like.  That’s not being mean; it’s just common sense to use the system in the way that helps, not hurts everyone.

If everyone will follow these two simple rules, we’ll very quickly have 200 legitimate Forum Gurus identified to help affiliates both old and new in the best possible way.

We thank everyone for your help in making the SFI Forum the absolute best resource it can possibly be!
