Please Do Not Take NG’s Loyalty For Granted

do not take me for granted

April 1st, 2016 – Please Do Not Take NG’s Loyalty For Granted

We want to appreciate all loyal readers of this blog and especially those who are yet to receive a reward and yet coming in the spirit of oneness.

We also want to sound a serious warning  to some top commentators who have been sending insulting emails to the editors in the past 3 hours. This has to stop!

Our reward program was sponsored by some readers who advised us to start a loyalty program to encourage interaction but it seem some selfish individuals (sorry for our strong words) are taking it for granted.

When NaijaGists.com started several years ago, we pulled a strong fan base as it is evident on our official Facebook and Twitter page, we didn’t’ introduce a reward program and yet our GREAT PEOPLE are still becoming because of our interesting articles and the investigative nature of our contents.

Earlier this year, some readers overseas contacted us and offered to sponsor our reward program and that’s how we started the top 10 commentators thing.

And since then we noticed readers are coming together to share their mind, which promotes interaction.

At this point, we are pulling a plug on this loyalty program, we have contacted our sponsors and have appreciated them for their kind gestures.

We do not want to create any conflict among our readers and fans.

We do not wants readers to feel less appreciated, we want this platform to be free of conflict.

From now on, please let the comment be free and without force.

Starting from this month, readers and commentators alike will have access to reward but it will not be announced.

You will find this free gifts at the bottom of posts.

Also the top 10 commentators will still be honoured, if you look at the lower left hand side of the site (on the home page), you will see the list of top 10 commentators there.

We are sorry to pull a plug on this, we do not want to cause conflict of interest.

We appreciate both readers and commentators alike.

Thanks for being a fan and we promise to keep bringing you interesting, entertaining and timely news.

Shalom!

    The author sound hurt, those emails must have insulted your personality
    Just block them going forward. Some people can be very annoying
    Even if you give them your head, they will want your blood
    Sorry dear, you don’t deserve insults.

    The reward program was to promote readership and make people make reasonable comments. That your name was not published does not mean you are not appreciated. The insult heaped on the publishers of this forum goes to show that some of our people will never change. It is this type of people that will shout wipe out corruption but will turn around and blame anybody who is fighting corruption. Personally I visit this forum more than three times a day and make comments where I think it is necessary. Those insulting the publishers are of little mind and evil intent.

    I am so-so disappointed that this is happening. This goes to prove how ungrateful and childish that humans can be. These rewards are not earned, so why would any sensible human being insult anybody because of them?

    If this program is going to cause disaffection, then I suggest it be stopped entirely. It is so sad how good intentions sometimes lead to something undesirable. We were so happy here before it started, and so if we could not be mature and respect ourselves about it, then let it be altogether withdrawn.

    My humble submission.

    Whoever that send abusive and insulting mails to NG is a hungry fellow(Sorry to say) I’m among the top 10 commentators,but I’m not complaining. Its time we act like a matured person and not a kid. Don’t take someone’s kindness for his/her weakness….

    NG please, don’t mind whoever that’s sending insultive emails to your editors. I personally knew it will come to this when you guys were posting names of the top 10 commentators, because human beings especially ******* can never be satisfied, they can never appreciate good thing. They are full of greed and can do anything for what they stand to gain. Please forgive them. Thanks a lot NG. You guys are too much.

    People Don’t Want Good Things For Others.

    Even Though I Am Never Among Top Ten Has No Negative Impact On Me.

    I Don’t Understand People Anymore. This is A Very Civil Program.

    Perhaps, If They Want To Be Reward, They Should Simply Improve Their Comments.

    How’s That Difficult. Shaking My Head For Greedy Folks.

    Anyway, NaijaGists, Let Them Say. But I hope In The Future You Will Retract Your Move To Pull The Plug

    I am highly disappoint at some people’s attitudes. We all can’t be winner. I will suggest winners should be sent mails instead of making public announcement.

    WHAT??? What am I reading here? Hai… Just seeing this…Insuted our Dearest NG? For what? Who are those imported starving baboons behind such shameful acts? How on Earth would you insult somebody whom you have never seen and may NEVER see? Who is the bigger fool?

    We were doing pretty well before this reward thing came up. I discovered NG since 2011, and since then, it has became a part of me, we never knew it would ever come to this.
    I can still remember some of the names of our old colleagues. We had people like:- Ms Red, Iron bar, Metu Nyetu, Sunday Mercy, Bezo, spammer, mulikat, Zion, Anambra kwenu, onwa etc…. It was simply fun.

    When this reward started by Jan. 2016, I was not even among the top 10 and I did not complain. Why should I? In Feb. I made it and up till this very moment, I‘ve not recieved anything from NG and I did not complain. Ok, in last Months results, though, I did not make the top 10 but my name came up in another unique category called -The Most Engaging Contributors- and I was happy.
    Only NG has a say in this reward thing because,

    1) They are the one who out of their benevolence just decided to introduce this reward thing in order to spice up our reading and promote interractions.

    2) Nobody knows what basis of judgement they use to pick their top 10. Do you know? If not then what makes you think you ought to be among the top 10?
    3) If at the end of the month your name does not make the list of the top 10, it simply means you do not make it. For your info, NG is not owing you any farthing. So, get that into your empty skoll.

    EXIT to strolling……

    NaijaGists.com, from the depth of my heart, I humbly extend my sincere apology regards this show of shame from some idiots on this site.
    If your good intentions for us is misconstrued by some miscreants with some misguided utterances directed at you for the sake, I think it would be ok if you cancel anything reward at the end of the Months. What do you say?

    Before this generous loyalty began in January, this forum was fun and educative,even when the loyalty started the first 10 rewardee’s in January was not aware of anything coming… I was on board till February when I realize many flocked in to get gifts,But NG too many cooks spoil the soup… Pls you don’t even have to do give people this kind gesture since its been abused. Pls don’t let anybody take kindness for weakness. Kindly put a CAPITAL STOP to the loyalty program. Much appreciation for your kind gesture.

    Typo* Insult.
    I was soooooo disappointed by this incident, yes.
    But I, D Hunter would be more disappointed IF U guys do not reveal the names of all the (Aturu) Rams behind this act.

    I would have appreciated it so much if only you will kindly publish all those virus in our midst so that we may know them. Please NG do that for us even if thats going to be the last thing YOU will do for US. PLEASE…..

    I am expectant.

    I must say am very disappointed with this development,if you are not among the winners in a particular month does not mean you wont be in the subsequent month

    2. @ Fifelomo,sending winners private mails instead of announcing it will make it less interesting and attracting

    3. @ naijagistnews, i will suggest you publish the names of those “fake”fans for the whole world to see
