Google’s Prizes.org

Posted: May 7, 2012 in Uncategorized

Obviously you start on this site knowing it is by Google and expect every thing to be taken care of. Well nothing is. The biggest fault of the system is allowing winning by votes. And making it so easy for a scammer to get 100s of votes in a short time using his own fake accounts or jobless friends. Anyone who complains about this passionately is banned. There seems to be an atmosphere of deliberately giving a bad name to crowdsourcing.

 

There are all kinds of contests, but at the end of the day it is a “prizes” and “contests” site for nubs and mommies, not a “crowdsourcing” site by any angle. 5 Thumbs Down. Boycott this site until they remove the voting system and ban the users who have taken advantage of this system repeatedly and used slimy tactics to get those who spoke up banned.
