This post tries to consolidate solutions, workarounds and possible solutions across categories each major release. Minor updates and fixes released will be included. After each major release, I will just copy/paste anything that is still relevant from the older version post into the new one.

Anyone with a solution or workaround, if it is not already listed below, please post it in a reply to this topic! The help will be greatly appreciated by anyone experiencing the issue, I’m sure.

Anyone with an issue that needs a solution, please post in the appropriate category and not here.

The topic is now a wiki post. Anyone with Trust Level 1 (TL1) can edit the topic. The Basic Badge is TL1. If you have this badge, you can edit this topic.

ISSUE: Receiving Less BAT than Earned (April 2022 Payout)

Brave Ads Payout status

Update: 04/25/2022

Update: 04/22/2022 Issue Identified (@steeven post)

UPDATE: Still an issue for some users (Gemini & Unverified Users mostly).

Set Aside until Further Notice

For Uphold users who still have payout issues:
Error in claiming April 2022 Payout - And nothing after that - #7 by steeven

Please, after you DM support staff with the information requested, do not continually tag/DM them asking for an update. That just slows down the process. Wait at least a week before you tag them in a post (or DM them again) asking for an update.

Comment by Miyayes (Issue Author/Brave-Browser Collaborator)

Additional Information

Device limits will be removed in a future release. Anticipated release date is April/May but that is not confirmed. Until that time, use the “Wallet Unlinking Request” post to unlink one device. Your unlinking request is placed in a queue and Brave staff work on requests in the order received. It may take several days, weeks, or even months for your request to be fulfilled. You will receive an email notification when it is.

From previous posts, it appears the most frequent reason that a request is not fulfilled is because the form was filled out incorrectly. Just make sure you submit the form correctly the first time. If unsure about an entry, ask for clarification via a community post. Hopefully, someone will respond.

Below is a link to a recent post with a screenshot of an email from Brave support per incorrect information submitted. It looks like they do provide instructions on locating the correct information (although it is not displayed) so that’s helpful! Also, the email has an April release date for removing linking limits completely. I hope that one isn’t delayed.

I can't get my wallet verified on my mobile - #8 by Herki

Other Reasons You May be Receiving this Error

If you have never received a payout to your Uphold account, these are some of the things you can check. Before you start, make sure you are updated to the latest Brave version and the OS of the device you are using is updated to the latest version.

  1. Clear history/cache, exit Brave, and reopen. This works for some users.
  2. Does your device pass the SafetyNet check. You will not be able to claim rewards if your device fails the SafetyNet check.
  3. Make sure your account is verified at Uphold. Go to your profile page and there should be a verified date at the bottom.

    Example: Screenshot of a Verified Profile at Uphold
    Can’t verify and authorize the wallet, can’t connect Brave to Uphold - #2 by Impoiler
  4. Make sure all your personal information in your Uphold account is accurate and complete. For example, Uphold will verify your account with an incomplete address, but Brave needs your full address, including street number, street, city, etc.
  5. Make sure you are in a Brave Supported Country. Supported countries are listed at the bottom of the Transparency page. Note: Only creator contributions are supported in the Philippines.
  6. Make sure you are not in an Uphold Non-Supported Jurisdiction.

Note About Supported Countries/Regions/Jurisdictions
From time to time supported countries and regions may change. If you are in a non-supported area, you will not be able to verify or reconnect to a custodial account provider. You may have earnings in Brave Rewards but you will not be able to transfer them to a custodial account.

Try This: Community Member Solutions and Workarounds

Please note, many of these are specific solutions to specific issues provided by community members and may not work for everyone. Many others are known fixes and will work for anyone having the issue. Please, just be cautious if you try these and proceed at your own risk especially if you are adjusting system settings and not just Brave Browser settings!

Before you begin, always make sure you are updated to the latest Brave version and always backup the Brave Browser data folder preferably on an external device. You should copy the entire folder. You can restore the backup folder in the same location later if needed. You should also have a current system backup/restore point, especially if you will be changing any system settings or system config settings.

In many cases, these solutions or workarounds have been posted by several different people over time. I just picked up the one I ran across first and tried to use posts with screenshots. No disrespect intended to users who may have posted earlier. Also, if you have a post for this section (even if it is a duplicate) that provides additional information, please feel free to post it here or in a reply to this topic!

Every detail you can provide about your issue helps Brave Support. The more detail you provide the less time support staff have to spend requesting additional information which in turn gives them more time to consider your issue and situation!

Brave Support prefers you use their Report Templates (see below). You are more likely to receive help from both community members and support staff if you submit a detailed support request using one of the templates.

How to create a Bug Report posted by @289wk

Note: @289wk provided instructions per creating a topic from the main page of community.brave.com. You can do this, especially if you are an experienced user and any instructions/templates related to the category will still be available.

The instructions I provided has the user enter the category to create a topic. I think it is more beneficial for new users to actually enter the category/subcategory so they will have access to pinned topics and issue specific topics if they decide to do a search of topics. New users can do this from the main page, but I think it is more confusing to a new user to do. Please provide feedback. We can always do an edit! :grin:

Customize New Tab Page Images

By default there are some images (currently 15) other than NTP Ads that display in rotation on opening a NTP. Instead of rotating through background images, you can upload your own image to use as the default background on a NTP. Examples and instructions are available at this Brave GitHub issue report: https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/issues/19640

Solid colours and Gradients for the NTP are still in the works. You can track the status of the issue here: https://github.com/brave/brave-browser/issues/15252

Additional Information

A topic by a community member (@Saoiray) pinned in the Rewards Support category. Consolidates much of the information from various other information sources in one place. Pulls information from sites like the Help Center, Brave GitHub, Reddit (BATProject & Brave_Browser), and pinned topics in Community Categories, and even Search results.

Search is a great tool to locate previous topics (and solutions) related to a particular issue. Use it before you post! This community is more of a DYOR (do your own research) community than anything. You can post a one-liner topic or just “Help me!” but you are unlikely to get a response either from a community member or support staff. Ditto for “me too” replies in posted topics.

In conclusion, the PSA: FAQ topic can help you troubleshoot issues you may have before posting a topic. Several of the solutions in this post are already addressed in the PSA: FAQ topic too. Highly recommend you browse that topic just as a general information resource and definitely look it over before you post to see if it addresses your specific issue.

@Chocoholic ,

My vote, would be to concentrate on documentation re help and guidance, within:

  • Brave Help Center
  • Brave Community

everywhere that the documentation is out-of-date and thus not helpful nor guiding true.

That editing would include, getting all of the bug/issue/problem/trouble Reference / Report Templates per

  • Categories
  • Sub-Categories
  • Tags

combinations, example:

Screen Shot 2022-04-03 at 4.20.36 AM

in sync, between what Brave Support (mostly that has been the work by Mattches) and Brave Help Center, have. The Templates do not match or are insufficient.

Re Guidance, that must include instructions on how the Discourse software - the Editor windows - work.

There are MANY new reports that do not satisfy the Templates, and reduce the chances of getting a response from Brave Support, because newcomers DO NOT know how. I addressed some of that problem:

Brave Browser Release Notes and Latest Release information is scattered widely. My attempt to get all that in one place:

Brave Search Engine

The Brave Search Engine should find every Brave Browser technical term, and up-to-date documentation, guidance, and help – all of of which, ought to be present within the Brave Help Center.

If Brave Support wants people to do research, first, then “the system” had better provide thorough illustrations and examples on how to search, using the Brave Search Engine, and using the search function within the Brave Community software system.

Chocoholic,

My prayer for you, is that you measure your energy and time, as you get involved, and focus your effort.

Edit Conflicts
An “edit conflict” notice will pop up if someone else is editing the post at the same time. You could potentially overwrite the other persons edit (or they could overwrite yours) if you save your edit during an “edit conflict” scenario. Instead of saving your edit, just cancel the edit and save it as a Draft and post it later when there is no conflict. Just make sure any new edits are displayed in the preview pane of your Draft when you pull it back up.

If new edits are not showing in your draft. Copy the information saved in your draft post, discard the draft, and click to edit the post again. Then paste the information you copied into the new edit.

Editing Plugin
There is a plugin that allows shared editing but I do not know if it is available for Brave wiki posts. Just to be on the safe side, don’t post your edit until the conflict is resolved (no one else is editing topic, just you). Apparently there is a “tell” that indicates if the plugin is enabled or not. I will try to find out more and let you know.

I am going to start a section on targeted solutions provided by community members. These will not necessarily be global solutions for an issue, but solutions that worked for a particular user in their case (if that makes any sense!).

If you have examples of these type solutions, please post them in a reply to this topic. The solution should be current. In other words, not something that happened years ago which will probably never happen again! :grin:

Thank-you!

@Aman_M Thanks for the updates! :slightly_smiling_face:

I really like linking the removed content due to character limits to a post of the content. Great idea!

Also, like that you added links to the Help Center article per issue as “Context:”. Much more relevant there than where I had it.

Per the PSA: FAQ topic, I think that was probably a good idea to move it for now. Some of the information in the topic is outdated due to recent changes in version updates. Should we indicate that?

Per the grey background of headers. You like it better highlighted all the way across? I tend to like just the “classification” part highlighted, but either way is good with me! Just would like it be consistent. I am not going to change anything until you (and any others who want to chime in!) let me know which you prefer. :smiley:

I wasn’t sure myself but thought to give it a try. Now it does look to obscure its content. You can change it as you like.

I think, PSAs, FAQs, Help Centre and Resources, How to… and How do I… topics need a better placement, formatting/clubbing together but I don’t know how. And I agree that most important issues of the month should appear first.

Also, I was thinking, details on working with Brave GitHub looks to occupy some space and is slightly off topic as well. May be it can be put under “hide details” in some way or a new post with a link in the OP. Nothing serious, just a suggestion, it fine in the OP as well.

OK. Probably will change the next update I make.

Good idea. I will move to new post and link. (Yes! Liking this more and more! :smiley:) I personally like to know if GitHub issue report is open for those support requests with issues that are posted frequently.

I think I will leave the “In the Works…” section and move the rest. Or maybe put it at the end of the related issue? Like Context would be at top and GitHub issue report at bottom? What do you think?

Edit: Forgot one!

Agreed! lol I have been struggling with the formatting of those sections too. Maybe keep the “How to…” and “How do I…” sections and move everything else to a link? Maybe we will think of something to help improve… hopefully… or better yet, maybe someone else will have a better idea and share it! :smiley:

Yeah, at the end of the related issues would be better idea for “In the works” GitHub issues. May be more of that can be added as we find.

Repositories (Issues & Projects)
There are 181 Public(Public + Public Archive) Repositories in Brave Software. Repositories contain project files. There are 4 Repository topics pinned on the main page for easy access. You can find all available repositories below the pinned ones.

I am going to use the Brave-Browser Repository as an example for finding Issues and Projects in the More Details (Repositories) section below. All other repositories are similar with a few exceptions. For example, Issues & Projects for the Brave-Core Repository are in the Brave-Browser Repository and most repositories don’t have Wikis.

More Details (Repositories)

If you click on the Brave-Browser Repository, the <>Code Master page is displayed. This post is addressing the Issues and Projects menu options.

Issues
Clicking on the Issues menu option opens the Issue Reports in the Brave-Browser Repository. Each report is assigned an issue number. Open and Closed issue reports are listed in two separate categories.

You can search for an Issue Report by entering keywords in the search query box. This will pull up both open and closed issues using the keywords entered. When searching, you can enter the keywords at the beginning or end of the query string automatically displayed or remove the string entirely and just enter your keywords. The same results display and both open and closed reports are pulled.

@289wk posted a topic (with screenshots!) of searching for Brave GitHub Issues.
Quick Orientation to: Searching for Brave Browser Issues at GitHub

A link to the GitHub About documentation on Search is in the topic but I reposted it here also. About searching on GitHub

More Details (Issues)

To view details about an issue click on the report link. The report is a busy place with lots of information! If interested, you can explore the information in more detail to get a better understanding but explaining the various additional information provided is way too complex (and I don’t understand a lot of it! lol) and out of the scope of this post.

If an issue is Closed, that does not mean it is available in the Release version. If you look to the far right of the issue report, you will find Project and Milestone assignments. Under Project are listed the project(s) the issue was assigned to and under Milestone the version release for the issue. There may or may not be anything listed under either of these. The issue can move through the development process without having a project and/or milestone assignment. If you look in the body of the issue report, you can usually see where the issue was initially assigned and pulled.

Example Issue:
Rewards page blank with devtools errors#22113

Within the body of the issue report you see other related issues like the following.
Fix rewards page local storage loader brave/brave-core#12904.
If you go to that issue, you will see it was assigned a milestone but not a project which is not unexpected since it was originally assigned to brave/brave-core.

Projects
All the Projects in the Brave-Browser Repository are listed here. If you click on a project in the list, you will pull up the Project Dashboard. As in the Brave Software Projects, all the issues assigned to that project will be displayed and are organized by where they are in the development process. You can track the status of a project entered on the dashboard by clicking on the card link. You can search for specific cards by entering keyword(s) in Filter cards

Might be a good idea to have consistent and meaningful status indicators.

I agree! The red and green dots are confusing. I thought green would mean complete and red still processing but it is just the opposite. And I am still unsure what exactly the yellow does… I wish Brave would change that or at least put it in the post what those indicators mean!

I will add the information per my understanding (probably wrong! :laughing:) to this topic though. Great idea! Thank-you for the contribution. :smiley:
