IS IT FAIR, OR DID THE CHURNERS JUST GET A PAY RISE

dooyoo Rewards System
Advantages: There are none as far as I can see
Disadvantages: A LOT
I think any sane person knows what has happened on this site and that is a considerable number of members have taken gross advantage of dooyoo and cost them an enormous amount of money, yes the churners I am talking about. It is obvious that dooyoo could not carry on paying enormous amounts of money for useless rubbish that is of no use to anyone, but I think they could have come up with a better way to do this, as we now have the churners churning out rubbish reviews in Category 1 and guess what now they have had an increase, instead of getting 50p per churn they now get 60p!!!!
I am not talking about people who write a lot of good reviews and participate in the site, I am talking about the hardcore churners, who are here for no other reason than to churn out review after review with the bare minimum of words required padded out with a copy/past list of ingredients.
The key here would have been to get the churners off this site by making some new rules instead of making a tier system. The following ideas would have stopped the churners in their tracks;
Some people have fulltime jobs and family, but they still have time to participate in this site, most churners however do not participate and if you look at how many review's they have actually read it will be 0 or very low. A system could have been implemented that to get paid anything on your review you need to read a certain number of reviews per week.
There could be a limit on how many reviews you are allowed to write in a day, say 5 not many people can manage to write 5 reviews in a day, I know I can't, I have rated on average 90 reviews per day (7) days per week since start, which takes up some considerable time, I am here at least 5 hours per day and only managed to write 2 reviews per day at most occasionally I managed to do 3 and all my reviews have been a minimum of at least 300 words and some considerably more .
I am not saying you should be made to read 80 reviews per day but say 100 per week and if you don't then the reviews you wrote for that week you don't get paid on.
If they increasedthe number of words say 300 needed to be written, made people actually participate on the site it would give the churners less time to churn out rubbish without having to punish the rest of us.
The tier system could still be in place but at the old rate 50p per review and 1.5p per read, but out of the 5 reviews you can write each day, they could say only 1 out of level 3, 2 out of level 2 and 2 from level 3.
This would be fairer than punishing us all. What about the people who don't have any kids, or they are grown up and gone, well that section for L1 is out, or have had their home set up for a while, well that section is out as well, many of the electrical items that are over a year old are not in the catalogue, and yes I know you can request them, but with technology moving so fast these days many items over a couple of years old are no longer sold.
I know one lady on here I have never spoken to her, but I read all her reviews, she writes 1 good quality review on children's books every couple of days, (I have bought 3 recommended by her for my god children and family members). She has participated in this site every day reading and commenting on other peoples review's , I see that she has actually rated over 50,000 more people than have rated her, now that is dedication, now she will have to take a drop of 20p per review. Is this fair? I don't think so.
The churners will always win, and make the most money until dooyoo put a stop to it by not rewarding them with an extra 10p to churn out 6 bottles of perfume one after the other and 8 TV's. They must be stopped or banned from the site.
For my 30+ hours I have been putting in here I have made on average £15.00 per week, but now two of the category's that I write in have been cut, one of them so it is just not worth writing about at all, I will make even less.
Whereas I don't expect to make a fortune here I do need to cover the electricity etc that it costs to sit on the pc most of the day reading/rating and writing. Dooyoo is not a charity but neither am I.
Where I understand they had to make cuts I am disappointed with the way they have done it, and not considered the genuine dooyooers who will not be able to write about most of the stuff in Level 1
Summary: Come on dooyoo lets be fair
