I did talk to mods and they just ghosted me i need to know if Brave is a scam or what???
@Yunghxul they have asked you to send them information a few times. Most of what you did was just comment on other people’s posts, sometimes off topic. The last time you created a topic you still haven’t provided the info. In fact, they locked your last post stating:
CLOSED ON JAN 7
Please repost to reflect the template and guidelines and we’d be more than happy to assist you.
Guidelines - Before posting, please:
- Search the forum to see if anyone else has already posted or resolved the issue you came to ask about.
- Fill out the template that appears in your editor when posting as it contains all the boiler-plate information surrounding your issue. It will help the Support team members and other Community members to efficiently assess and resolve your issue.
- Provide essential info such as your version number and OS, to help Support and other Community members resolve your issue.
- Ensure that you’re posting in the appropriate category
- Tag your post appropriately – note that some tags are restricted to or from specific categories.
- Observe and adhere to our code of conduct
Then there’s the comments from steeven
DM is a Direct Message, which means a private message, not on the forums. I know you have randomly slipped in information in places it doesn’t belong, such as My uphold wallet is verified and linked with brave rewards - #17 by Yunghxul
The information they ask you to provide when you make a post here in the forums is below. You’re supposed to fill in your information.
Please ensure that you’ve read through the following topics/pages thoroughly before opening a topic as your question may have already been answered:
- How do I opt into Brave Ads?
- Why am I not seeing Brave Ads?
- Windows 10 Ads Troubleshooting
- Rewards FAQ
Please try to adhere to this template when reporting bugs. If you think you don’t need to fill out every section in the template fill out as much of it as you can and please be as descriptive as possible when posting.
<---------Delete this line and everything above before posting---------->
Briefly describe your issue:
What Operating System and Brave version are you using (
Menu --> About Brave)?
Is your browser wallet currently verified? (yes/no)
What date did you verify your wallet?
Have you been able to successfully receive payments in the past?
Are you using a VPN? (yes/no)
Are you in a supported region (see here for list of supported regions)?
Does your device pass the SafteyNet check (Android only)?
Have you manually turned off Auto-contribute on all of your devices linked to Uphold??
They won’t be able to help you if you don’t follow their instructions. So please do message either @steeven , @Mattches , or @SaltyBanana and make sure you provide all of the information they are asking of you.
Even if we do, they don’t even reply, what’s the use of all of this if they don’t wanna reply.
I’ve sent the complete details of whatever they had asked, still no response.
@Mithilesh4 Let’s see. You joined the forums on January 15.
You have never created your own post nor have you shared the information they ask for. I do see where on OTHER PEOPLE’S posts you’ve tried tagging the moderators, but if you provide them with no information they can’t help you.
I’m not sure if you had written them. Nor do I know if you provided the right info. For example, they require you to DM them with your Brave Wallet and all. The wallet is different for your mobile and your PC, are you aware of this?
So for the first step, I’d say the same thing I mentioned to Yunghxul. If you don’t create your own posts, make sure to message them, and to provide the right information…they won’t be able to see and help you.
@Mithilesh4 A second thing to point out, not sure if you ever saw my PSA that I made the other day, but you might be interested in PSA: Friendly Reminder For People Having Issues with Rewards/Ads - #6 by Saoiray
To summarize that part, there are 800+ posts daily. In addition to that, there’s all the tags in comments and however many DM to sort through. They need to navigate that mess, do research on their end, and then make changes. It’s time consuming. And what’s sad is that there are 11 Moderators and all, but only 6 who are kind of active in handling issues. Of those 6, only 2-3 really do much on handling issues with BAT.
Mattches today was on assisting people for 6 hours. He had like 40 comments and handled topics all over the place.
Steeven, not sure what’s up with him. He has only been doing like 1 comment per day for the past few days. But I do know someone mentioned he had thousands of messages he’s trying to get caught up on. So that might be why we’re not seeing him respond on the forum.
Saltybanana seems to have been MIA today as well, with only 1 comment. Yet they are also the primary person beyond Steeven who processes BAT and fixes errors. So assuming plenty of mail and maybe helping to try to get things fixed and caught up.
Honestly, most others haven’t been on the forum lately. Sriram hasn’t commented or anything since January 18, Brian Bondy on January 20, etc. Eljuno last posted/commented on January 14 and has his profile marked as Time Off, so he’s not available.
They just aren’t staffed the way they need to be. Lately I’ve been bored and been kind of going through all the forums to see what’s going on. I watch as people have said they received help and all. Some faster than others. But like one that had success today was Had about 40 BAT, now suddenly all gone! - #4 by Wetbeard
Now in that one, they didn’t necessarily share the info that the other thread asks to post. It’s all about where you put it and what tags. In theirs, put “Funds Missing” which may have attracted more attention. shrug
I will say though, how you say things matters. Just like creating your own post rather than simply commenting on someone else’s also makes a big difference.
Regardless, they only have like 2-3 people working on all of this. So it does take patience sometimes.
First of all, I did DM the moderators, whenever they asked about it, steeven told me to DM the brave internals and all the other details, I did. Salty banana Asked me to DM him my wallet ID, and I sent him both my PC and mobile wallet ID.
Second thing, yes I understand it takes time for the process, but many of the topics are just closed without even being addressed, my friend hasn’t received the payout since 2 months, hasn’t been addressed yet, he got frustrated and he disabled the brave ads.
And yes, “Simply” commenting on others post is of no use for me and you, but if someone from that thread could resolve their issue, they would check the message and reply if they could help resolve mine, nobody has got so much time to waste it commenting .
Nevermind, thank you so much for your assistance.
And how do I know if my account is flagged by any chance?
what? is going on here?
Duuuude i sent them all the infos and didnt get a single reply , i already did that …
Thats why i was replying to threads and now i did send again , and actually its not big money i dont really care i just wanna see if thats legit or no , i was getting paid before no problem, i already verified my uphold wallet and linked it here and after it got unlinked and didnt get payouts after
Hi all @Mithilesh4 As far as I know, there isn’t a way to tell if your account/wallet has been flagged. I would love to have a way to tell. Would save a lot of backend research for sure! Would just check first to see if flagged instead of going through all kinds of hoops looking for setting issues. No matter how much I tweak, nothing is gonna change until flag is removed!
I submitted a Feature Request per this (hint, hint, Go Vote! lol)
Also, ran across this and posted link in same topic:
Would be nice to be able to check and see if my account/wallet has been flagged…
