Smith Micro/Content Paradise and Renderosity Prizes
« on: April 02, 2019, 01:20:52 PM »
Well I am very sad and upset with both of these entities....but still trying to cut the some slack.

So I am writing to you all about the situation with Smith Micro (Content Paradise) and Renderosity. They are taking an extremely long time awarding...I finally got SM (poser) caught up to January of this year but....

Please have patience, this is not in my control and have told ALL winners that I send the sponsors reminder weekly and thanked everyone for waiting. Also to let me know if they hear from them in case I do not hear from the sponsors but this is something that will most likely happen often until they get used to it all or get another rep for the job.

Again thank you all for your patience and understanding although my hands are sort of tied but I am still on them.

Ever since Content Paradise moved their store over to Rosity things have gone from very reliable to the opposite of the spectrum. I have had much trouble with SM in getting the winners fullfilled, I finally got her to do October to December ones.

Then I started getting the same kind of non-response from Rendo and found out my contact quit his job with them, it seems that nobody else is doing it, even though I have been told the entire department knows how to do it.

 
Fear not,
You are never alone,
I am there to comfort and guide you...
Always.

Looks like everything related to the "hobby" communities is dying. All of those content creators and sellers are getting up in the years and there is no fresh young blood coming in to replace them. Sad, yes but one can look at the situation and either see opportunities or calamities. I don't know any more as my interest in creating images has wanted. Don't fret, tho. It's the cost of being an aging hippie. :tearlaugh:

Not sure of that Hawk, like the Hobby communities help them to keep their activities. Less communities = less business at the end.

Maybe the merge between the shop entities isn't as easy as they thought and they are seeing that now - but too late.

It's a little move but anyway a move they did Mary. I hope now we begin to be far of the end of year celebrations they will find again they way.

I certainly hope so cause it is frustrating for me to keep bugging them but also for the poor waiting winners that get the idea I am dragging my feet...LOL

Even with the bad flu I had ---YES I dragged but not feet, the entire body was a different story...LOL

Right... Don't blame Mary. She's doing the best she can and all you can do to help each other out is COMMUNICATE. Nicely, may I add. What Aelin said no doubt happened - they bit off more than they thought there would be and have to sort it out.

Hi Hawk - had a giggle out of the 'aging hippy' remark. Hope you're doing well. :hawk:

Aging Hippie Syndrome...I feel a meme coming on, must go on search, in the meantime.
If you do not have a plan for your life. Someone else will.

Hi, Sidherose. And I agree with you and Aelin about the merger. I guess with people getting older and more inclined to focus on retirement and finance, I can see why people are leaving left and right. It ain't what it was supposed to be.

Glad to give you a chuckle or two. These days it helps to have a sense of humor to wrap oneself up to deal with the world. it ain't what it used to be, right?  :mwah:

Indeed....we've been through this a couple of times with our Sponsors....Remember the RDNA merger with Daz...what a time we had there.....But it all works out in the end.  Patience is the key....  Prizes will be received, it will just take a wee bit longer than usual.....

"Aging Hippy" indeed LOLOL....I think I still have my love beads around here somewhere....Unfortunately....the "Long Hair" went away eons ago.

Now I'm the "Bald Aging Hippy"   :thud: :tearlaugh: :tearlaugh:

No, it isn't what it was supposed to be is it. Is anything? :shrug:

Like you say, it helps to have a sense of humor, except it just keeps getting more and more cynical, doesn't it? At least mine does.

Oddly enough, there are quite a few 'millennial hippies' around. They got it from their parents or friends with old hippie parents and grew up listening to Zeppelin, EL&P, the Doors and the like. 

Lol...never was into 'groovy' it was too Maynard G. Krebs. More like 'Far Out' and 'Cool' here.
