First of all, thank you to all members of this program, whether you have been around for over two years, or just a few days. I appreciate all of your efforts in using the PaidToShare website. Several of you have been around since the beta release in December of 2005, others since the public release in March of 2006, with the rest joining sometime between then and now.
The time has come to shut down the website and move on. Since around the beginning of the new year, I have not put nearly enough time into keeping PaidToShare staying steady and going forward. This is unacceptable on my part, and I cannot and will not continue to run the program with less than the members and sponsors deserve.
The $1.00 minimum PayPal payment requirement has been waived, and all members with at least $0.01 balance, PayPal selected and payment information completed have been paid their full balance. Amazon and the other methods do not have a possible or feasible $0.01 payment amount (for example, Amazon does not sell gift certificates below $5.00), so if you have selected another payment method, please respond to the email that directed you here, and I will do my best to get a payment to you one way or another. If you did not have payment information provided, please also respond and and you will be shown what is necessary so that we can complete your payment as well. In case you have lost or not received the email, the proper email address for contact is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although I am unsure of what will be done with the website and domain name (whether they will be sold or not), I can assure you that your email addresses and other information will not be sold. If the domain name and/or website content are sold, that will be done without the database and any personal information.
Finally, please forgive me for not providing the care needed here over the past two months. Although many factors have been involved, there is no excuse to be made, because I did not provide what I should have.
I wish you well.
