Contribution and Earning program

The Contribution and earning program is a way to recognize each person's contributions to the site. Historically the greatest contribution has been in the guides, where many people have submitted information on Events, places to visit, places to eat and places to stay. More recent initiatives include the ability for people to submit articles, comment, give feedback, rate places and to provide suggestions for the site.

For each point earned you earn 10p. Payments are based on minimum thresh hold of 100 Pounds.

How it works

The program is very simple. Various activities on the site have points associated with them, and when a member does that activity he or she will receive that many points. We pay at the end of every month given you have earned £100, if not your points are added to your next month's contributions. There are many opportunities of scoring. Specifically, here's the current set of activities and points for each:
