Preventing Fraudulent RT claims! in Suggestion Box #Localvantia #Rewardical #TripleClicks

about 1 month ago

Very succinctly put... Not good at all!

I have just posted my own viewpoint about this problem.

Do YOU ( *& any other member/s reading my suggestion ) agree
AND
For once, at least, nothing has been said in jest

Happy Eid to all, believers in faith & non-believers* [ GOOGLE what it is about ].
* I am one but deeply in love with the associated feast.

Preventing Fraudulent RT claims! in Suggestion Box #Localvantia #Rewardical #TripleClicks

about 1 month ago

Ideally, HONESTY should not require any guidelines or supervision.
Conversely, DISHONESTY should be dealt with severely, rather CRUSHED
remorselessly with an iron fist.

One FALSE CLAIM can be considered a genuine error & the user flagged.
Even honest people CAN make a mistake.

Second false claim & the member can be penalized... a week's suspension
or any other penalty [ including monetary ] as deemed fit.

In case the member persists, do we really need such people in our midst

My 1st action as a STL = Suggesting an EDIT in Suggestion Box #Leadership

about 1 month ago

Dear Munish,


Where else could THIS ( ) have come from but India

I am applying for a Croatian passport as soon as this name
becomes OFFICIAL

BUT
technically speaking, a spelling mistake is JUST THAT , certainly not
a BUG.
So i am doing the right thing by "suggesting an edit" rather than
"reporting a bug".

Ignore the lady who found EVERYTHING OKAY.
There is an English proverb about "missing the woods for the trees"

So, as i understand, you are saying that SFI will have to adopt
a DIFFERENT METHOD to ship / mail the item within U.S.A if the bid
winner is residing outside USA ????

What an idiot i am...
I absolutely failed to see this BIG HITCH in my suggestion

It is A GENUINE SUGGESTION for a spelling correction.

Hi, everyone



I achieved my STL norm around an hour ago [ 4004 VP's ] & the
formal announcement should be hitting my inbox any time soon.
{ No emojee for a man dancing }

And, guess what my 1st action as an STL is...
I found yet another boo-boo in our website pages

:
www.sfimg.com/Reference/ComparisonChart

Row # 9

BAs (mononus CSthly)

Should be Bonus CSAs (monthly) or so I reckon
====================================================
My father was an EDITOR for the Government of India &
I always followed closely whatever official work he did at home.
====================================================

I wonder WHY no other member has noticed THIS
No one has reported it for sure...

With DUE RESPECT to ALL members ,

One look at my own ticket number(s) & the figure is not a secret anymore.

ONLY OBJECTIVE was to draw attention to an expense that i feel is avoidable.

Dear Gery,


I am truly appreciative of the fact that you, the top honcho, takes
PERSONAL INTEREST in an individual's "welfare / issues".
Evidence is right here for all of us to see.

BUT, what about certain issues that are swept under the carpet &
never reach [ / are intentionally kept away from ] YOUR eyes ?
******
(2)
I am sure the 3rd party IS being paid.
Would you care to share the exact figures ?
OR, like 3 bosses of mine, tell me gruffly to "stop meddling"
... [ or, you will face disciplinary action - they threatened ] ?

It was only the 4th incumbent who listened to me & ACTED.

Call it persistence or call it obstinacy. BUT, that's me.

Of course, here too, i can not INSIST that what i feel is right.
I only "expressed" what i felt i should.

(3)
I remember your "assurance" about your receptive attitude.
PLUS you never told me " Never send us emails. "
I still remember that you replied to my ( silly, as they seem in
retrospect ) emails with utmost patience [ 2014, was it ? ]

AND (4)
By the way, India is celebrating 71 years of INDEPENDENCE.
See ? No emoticons this time...

Dear Ray,



You are being overly modest
AND, a gem of a person IF my experience is anything to go by.
BUT
To be very honest, you ARE wrong.
The idea occurred to me SUDDENLY - AFTER the post had
been submitted.
And the nostalgic reference ? That too was an innocent "BRAG".
IT saw the light of day { although it is nearly midnight for me }
simply because the cases were similar.

Four or five years ago, in fact, i had made this suggestion that ideas
that ARE implemented should be rewarded.
BUT, Gery shot it down on the premise that the members will then
be tempted to inundate SUPPORT with unnecessary tickets.
So, there !

Find me like Christine did [ ] and we can be friends.

Another thing, Jan !
I might as well say it...
You can always use the REPLY tab rather than the QUOTE one
when you respond to the MAIN POST in a thread.

I was also committing the same mistake before becoming wiser.

Dear Becky,


As the subject / title of this thread suggests, i am always in favor of INFORMATION.

However, WHY should SFI bear the financial burden for "what you / i find useful ?
Do we not have enough memory / space on the HD of our own computers ?

Or, would you suggest that SFI keeps spending their money on "pampering" us ?

Was i [ and so many others ] not banished from TripleClicks using the same logic
as suggested by me in this case ?

To bring my naughty side to the fore, may i be permitted to refer you to
an earlier TOPIC / post:
www.sfimg.com/forum/thread?post_id=1482520#post-1482520

It did find me a friend in Gibraltar as you can see.
And today, i hope to add you to that list.

Thanks for the appreciation.

Though i never opted for a formal MFA [ involves HARD WORK ],
i am sure you WILL AGREE that:
A legit business operations expense can not be justified when
it serves absolutely NO PURPOSE.

I thought emoticons could always be disregarded IF not preferred.
As for me, i love them.
And, hope you will indulge my idiosyncrasy

THE JUNK i refer to is the . 600,000+ support tickets
Honestly, does SFI have any use for what happened a full 12- months ago ?

There are so many other things { including a few USEFUL things ) that have
been junked in the months gone by...
Then, WHY NOT these "records" that we know as SUPPORT TICKETS ?
We ( SFI ) have a MAIN database + a separate one for EACH MEMBER.
Are we really "USING" this information as to what transpired a year ago ?

This time i am IN REVERSE GEAR ( about INFORMATION )* in Suggestion Box #Leadership

Only a few minutes ago, i have submitted a SUPPORT TICKET.
The number is 840849

At the same juncture in 2017 [ ref.point = 08/10/17 ], 600,000
of these had already been created.

NOW, it occurs to me:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
(1) My ticket does not address a concern that can be termed IMPORTANT.
## Rather, i would, myself, term it as TRIVIAL & even FRIVOLOUS.

(2) I am sure i am not the only IDIOT around.

(3) MORE IMPORTANT, how much is SFI spending as fees to carry this
## junk ( till eternity ? ) on the precious resource called server-( / web)space ?
An accountant [ i was one ] can easily furnish the figures.
The DATA is certainly there - BUT - no one is looking.

(4) How much saving can be effected by removing THIS junk ?
## Every month... forever hereafter ?

EPILOGUE
=========
In the mid-1980's, i was rewarded ( ) by my then employers with
an increment of Rs.90/- for saving them a similar "wasteful expense".
The money involved some BANK CHARGES that were needlessly being paid
on a monthly basis.
The monthly SAVINGS that accrued ??? To the tune of Rs.60.000/- & more.

Did help me "make up my mind" to shed my EMPLOYEE tag...

Dear Frank *& Gery,


I have always been an active advocate of "as much INFORMATION as possible"
as evident by my many forum posts on the topic .

The suggestion is REALLY WORTHWHILE & will certainly please many regardless
of the naysayers who disagree for the sake of disagreeing.
AND
It is really heartening to see the positive response by The Master ( You, Gery )

In any case , is it not what the SUGGESTIONS section is there for ?
EDIT = just the "comma"
I also am among the fans of AA - the evidence is surely there for the regulars to see
even though i am yet to win more than just a few

allowed to bid:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
OOPS
This item does not ship to India

WHY can i not be allowed to BID > WIN &* GIFT to someone

Instead of saying OOPS , WHY NOT::
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Please NOTE "before you bid"
This item does not ship to India

...To DISAGREE just for the sake of disagreeing ? in Just For Fun #Leadership

You are so very right...
That actually WAS the (my ) motivation for THIS TOPIC

It is my pleasure, but ironical, that someone from GIBRALTAR should comment
on my post. When i joined SFI, I put this prominently on my HOME PAGE:
MY #1 GOAL
"If all of my A2A friends write me one letter with stamps from their country,
my ambition of having *One Stamp from Each Country* will become a reality
much sooner than later.
Sanjeev Suri
xxxxx My POSTAL ADDRESS
New Delhixxxxxx xxxxxxxxx


All of it, INCLUDING THE ADDRESS, was visible to my team / A-2-A friends
till around mid-2015 when some changes obliterated it.

NOW, i am the only one who can see it *&* mope over it
I crossed out my ADDRESS as i gather it might contravene some archaic Forum Rule/s

As you can very well see... one is not entitled even to some FUN [ which HOBBIES are ].

I can only hope you are the type of person with initiative who'd go out of your way - get
my address somehow ( it is linked to my picture anyway ) - & write me a snail-mail with
a few nice stamps of your country.
