Hi Reever,


I see you already started submitting proposals, let us know if you have any questions.

I only got 20 connects when I signed up but haven't been able to send proposals since it was used up.


It seems newbies can't really make money here unless they start spending money here.

My connects were supposed to come back today automatically. It didn’t happen. Can you check my account and tell me why it didn’t?

Hi Alicia,

Your connects should be credited some time today, please give it a few more hours and if they do not reflect in your account by the end of the day, let us know and we'll further assist.

Hi Felix,as i discovered you have to actively choose a subscription before you get any connects. usually by clicking the green button of one of the subscriptions. You then immediately receive your connects.
