Only 3.0 BAT contributed (not 30.0 as expected) [SOLVED]


The Problem: Only 3.0 BAT were contributed this month, not the 30.0 BAT I had expected. Here’s what I saw:

On 9Mar2019, I believe I was using Version 0.60.47 Chromium: 72.0.3626.119 (Official Build) (64-bit)

I am fairly sure I had ~145.0 BAT, with a few dozen supported sites (believable distribution of attention.) I had scheduled a Monthly payment of 30.0 BAT, and the next contribution date showed 3/8/2019. (The screen shots at Brave - Supported Sites: 0 (ZERO!) [Workaround?] are pretty accurate, except that I had a bunch of supported sites listed.)

Even though the contribution date (8Mar2019) had passed, no contribution had been made - I still had the 145 BAT.

I then went to about Brave, saw there was an update, and allowed the update to occur. I’m now using Version 0.60.48 Chromium: 72.0.3626.121 (Official Build) (64-bit)

When I returned to the Brave Rewards page, I saw: 142.0 BAT in my wallet with a rewards summary showing auto-contribute of -3.0 BAT (arithmetically correct), monthly payment of 30.0 BAT, with next contribution date of 4/8/2019 (see images below).

My question: Why was only 3.0 BAT contributed? Is this a bug? What other information could I collect? Thanks.

@LaurenWags - I’m cc’ing you on this note because I think you can tell the right people about this. Thanks again.



I think this message (if you zoom in on it) might explain it:


The numbers seem to make sense, too! What do you think?

Thank you for using Brave & BAT :smiley:.



Ahah! I agree that would explain things. [Not a bug]

But it would be good to fix that wording. I’ve been paying attention to the GUI for a couple months, and never (really) understood what that message meant. What if the message was:

Your wallet is holding 57 BAT for creators who haven’t signed up to receive contributions. … etc…

That implies that a) I’ve committed to giving creators 57 BAT, and b) that it’s my wallet that is “watching” for when they do sign up.

Will you also have a message that states, “Your wallet was increased by 12 BAT from creators who have not signed up in 90 days…”?




Looks like @chriscat was able to help, awesome!

As for your suggestions on wording, I’ll share with the team. Right now, I know we do not have a message as you suggested here

But, that’s something to consider as well. Will pass this along.

Thanks for being vigilant and reporting in when things don’t seem quite right, we truly appreciate the feedback :smile:
