If this comp is brought to you by citibank be aware that as a financial institution it may bring with it tax implications.


Flutterby - 17-8-2008 @ 11:51 PM

Also thanks, look fun!


chrisp43 - 18-8-2008 @ 12:14 AM

thanks and good luck:)


Dark Enigma - 18-8-2008 @ 02:34 AM

I have registered and put in my activation code, but don't seem to have any money to spend. Did it take a little while for people's $10,000 to come through?


twinmacs - 18-8-2008 @ 02:37 AM

thanks and good luck:):)

Dark Enigma, My money was there straight away


thinkwin - 18-8-2008 @ 03:33 AM

hmmm the choosing bit was hard. i have no idea and no inkling to try and work it out either :) so i bought Tyson Beckford shares (um just because) so feel free to live search him to your hearts content and make me some money! haha good luck everyone!


rpolly - 18-8-2008 @ 04:48 AM

this looks interesting, shall we start a lottos mini-league?


wallabygold27 - 18-8-2008 @ 08:47 AM

a lottos mini league sounds like a good idea


kismet - 18-8-2008 @ 10:40 AM

So what happens now? :o:o


linda1963 - 18-8-2008 @ 11:12 AM

we wait till tom to see if we made money


wallabygold27 - 18-8-2008 @ 11:12 AM

OK I have set up a mini league, not too sure how it works as of yet, but i'm sure we'll figure it out. in case the link below doesn't work I have named the mini league lottos.com.au and password comps

Dark-E, I think the trick is:

Despite the steps which say for you to 'pick' your celebrities as step 2, what they mean is to have an idea of what you are going to do (which in my case is not a clue) !

What I did after also having zero balance was to go to step 5 and create my portfolio name. Once I had done that I had the $ 10000 ;)


dawn1004 - 18-8-2008 @ 11:20 AM

This looks like a fun one.

I've picked my celebs (a few of the big names) and even Enrique is in there so I've bought a few shares in him to satisfy my 'lust' hee hee!!!

OK! I have joined. It tells me I have to wait for the administrator to accept me (which I gather, Wallaby, would be you!) :P


thinkwin - 18-8-2008 @ 11:25 PM

I've joined the mini league too - please accept me. I lost money yesterday so i promise not to be too much competition ;)


Fingers crossed - 18-8-2008 @ 11:45 PM

I have joined the league as well
thanks
smmj


rpolly - 19-8-2008 @ 12:08 AM

have joined the minileague too. :)


chrisp43 - 19-8-2008 @ 12:11 AM

i have joined as well although i have only managed to lose money so far.


twinmacs - 19-8-2008 @ 12:23 AM

Is there separate prizes for leagues or do they go for the same weekly prizes as normal??

Had a good night last night ranked 10th, but won't last long all my celebs a falling :D


prizesgalore - 19-8-2008 @ 12:47 AM

Where do you go to buy other celebrities as I can only see the top 50 and can't find John Cusack which is one I wanted to buy a share in.thanks :)

Edit....found it thanks :)


Dice - 19-8-2008 @ 01:04 AM

I joined the league as well... thanks for setting it up :)

I am currently ranked 30 with Miss12 sitting at 31


rainman1 - 19-8-2008 @ 01:22 AM

I have joined the lottos.com.au mini league also just wating to be accepted......Thanks Wallabygold27 for setting it up...:)

htt://search.live.com/xrank/r


prizesgalore - 19-8-2008 @ 01:24 AM

Sorry bit confused here. I have joined and picked my celebrities and it says I have enough celebs to be autobanked. Do I need to click on something or are they automatically saved for me? Do I only get a ranking tomorrow after the shares change tonight? Sorry for all the questions. No wonder I don't invest in the stock market :):P;)


twinmacs - 19-8-2008 @ 01:47 AM

prizesgalore your celebs will stay there untill you sell them. Your ranking I think only comes up after the nighttime autobanking thingy.
Sometime today the prices will update, then if you want you can buy/sell do nothing :D
But you can buy and sell as many times as you want between 6am and 2am east time daily, each one gives you an extra entry into the weekly prize draw

I think that right, please someone correct me if I am wrong


prizesgalore - 19-8-2008 @ 01:50 AM

Thanks twinmacs :)


linda1963 - 19-8-2008 @ 01:54 AM

cant see on the site where to join on the mini league?
ok found it now waiting


moty - 19-8-2008 @ 03:22 AM

I've joined the mini league too. Please accept me. Promise not to give anyone too much competition as I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. Just playing to get out the 25 wols and housework that I should be doing.:)


Dark Enigma - 19-8-2008 @ 04:28 AM

Still got $0 - is there anything that I could be doing wrong? I have emailed them, but they still haven't gotten back to me.


questiehorse - 19-8-2008 @ 05:04 AM

I have no idea what I am doing... However I am having a go...

Thanks its good fun... Good luck to all. ;)

Maybe your boss is on to your comping ways and put a blocker in :D


redwins - 19-8-2008 @ 10:06 AM

Hi, have no idea what I am doing but I have joined the league to, just waiting on administrator.

Is this the kind of thing you need to spend tons of time on?? I mean I can do a bit once a day but I can't sit here searching on my celebs??? Lots of comps to enter.... oh plus the family, work at all that....

Some of mine have changed, some have stayed the same.


Is there a limit to the number of those in the mini league? and what do you have to do for the mini league?

norie - 19-8-2008 @ 08:40 PM

Just joined lost a few bucks overnight but still plenty of money in the bank.


dbz - 19-8-2008 @ 09:01 PM

Have joined the lottos league - am waiting to be accepted!


wenwin - 19-8-2008 @ 09:14 PM

I have been accepted into the mini league. Thanks.


Dink - 19-8-2008 @ 09:16 PM

I've just joined as well. Will wait for confirmation and then try and work out how to play this game. :P


rpolly - 19-8-2008 @ 11:12 PM

just checked in this morning, but my profit hasn't been banked. Are we supposed to do that manually? I thought it did it automatically every night.


Flutterby - 19-8-2008 @ 11:17 PM

It gets automatically banked if you have 5 or more celebs, so if you only had money on 4 it wouldn't auto bank for you.


rpolly - 19-8-2008 @ 11:19 PM

yeah, I've got 5, and made a profit of over $1,000, but not banked. :(


frunue - 19-8-2008 @ 11:20 PM

All I can say is, I'm glad it's not real money.
I've only got $5,000 left from my original $10,000. :P


mystique32 - 19-8-2008 @ 11:42 PM

I'm not at all sure I get this game :(

The price I buy the clebs at is lower than their current price but they have red arrows next to them

Have I lost money on them or made money on them as the current price is higher than the buying price???

I have nothing banked either (well i don't think I do)

I just don't get it .................. :(


twinmacs - 19-8-2008 @ 11:45 PM

I am trying to remember what it did the night before. It banked mine last night, I can see the amount in the bank account, but my cash balance is still showing the amount banked plus the $10k that should stay there
I thought the cash balance each morning was only your original $10 give or take after any banking.

Hey, is that you guys ranked #2 ???? :)

I have jumped up to #5 :)


inkababy - 19-8-2008 @ 11:48 PM

I am ranked number 2 at the moment as lotto luck, just hoping i can maintain it though


Ekajata - 19-8-2008 @ 11:53 PM

was surprised to see on the mini league that all our real names are there as well. talk about non-anonymous.


Flutterby - 19-8-2008 @ 11:55 PM

Slipped to #36


moty - 20-8-2008 @ 12:07 AM

I thought the same thing Ekajata. Not that it makes much difference to me but was very surprised that it gives out your full name. I'm sure some wouldn't be very happy with that.


Dice - 20-8-2008 @ 12:08 AM

To those having trouble with the registration button, I had the same problem, I couldnt click it at all, I had to use Firefox instead of IE....

Worked ok on Miss12's comp with IE.... also found that this comp runs a lot quicker on Firefox.....

Hope that is of some help..... :)


Ekajata - 20-8-2008 @ 12:12 AM

I wonder how you 'leave' a league?


kats - 20-8-2008 @ 12:20 AM

i have joined as well, please accept me when you get a chance:)


ilana182 - 20-8-2008 @ 12:31 AM

I've just joined the league too.

Does anyone know what makes the prices go up and down? Is it the popularity of the celebrity or something??


chrisp43 - 20-8-2008 @ 12:37 AM

ilana it works on how many times the celebrity is googled on there live search engine


prizesgalore - 20-8-2008 @ 12:56 AM

Is anyone having trouble buying celebrities atm? Thanks :)


rpolly - 20-8-2008 @ 01:00 AM

I can't even get onto the page at the moment. Seems to be down.


sashandcherry - 20-8-2008 @ 01:03 AM

i just joined the mini league and bought 6 celebs - seems to be working ok from here


chrisp43 - 20-8-2008 @ 01:07 AM

I can't find the list of all celebrities at the moment.


Dark Enigma - 20-8-2008 @ 01:51 AM

My page is having a few "issues" at the moment as well.


Dark Enigma - 20-8-2008 @ 01:54 AM

Don't think that you can leave a league as such - but you can join up to 10 - including one of your own making.

i've been accepted as a lotto member for mini league

Thanks:)

lets hope i can figure out the right way to play this:D


ilana182 - 20-8-2008 @ 03:44 AM

I. AM. ADDCITED!!!


twinmacs - 20-8-2008 @ 03:59 AM

Me thinks it is going to be a looonnnnggggg 6 months :P;):P


ilana182 - 20-8-2008 @ 05:03 AM

My shares just changed from this morning. Some went up and some went way down :(


Dink - 20-8-2008 @ 05:04 AM

So presumably we buy the celebs with the green arrow going up?? And then sell them the next day and buy more? Is that how it works?


Bigam - 20-8-2008 @ 05:05 AM

6 months! Don't think I can last the distance.


Dark Enigma - 20-8-2008 @ 05:09 AM

Especially as they say this in their FAQs:

"When users sign up we promise that no details will be passed on to anyone - so we will not give any information relating to who runs any leagues."

juliew - 20-8-2008 @ 05:42 AM

I'm down to my last $300, that went fast.


prizesgalore - 20-8-2008 @ 06:06 AM

I'm up to $208000 but it won't bank :( yes it's a very addictive comp. Hope you can turn your$300 into $10000 again tonight Julie.;)


prizesgalore - 20-8-2008 @ 06:12 AM

Oh and Julie I just read this in the rules:
:D:D
Unlike the 'real world' - you haven't lost any real money! We will send you an e-mail to tell you you've lost all of your money. There's nothing to lose - come back into the game and we'll give you another $10,000 FIXATED dollars to start all over again!


redwins - 20-8-2008 @ 07:16 AM

Yeah I am totally losing also, I bought up big on Brandon Lee yesterday when I started (he was 0.20) and then I thought well hes not going to be searched much and sold them, today he is $17.80 and I had 4000 yesterday and now 4 of my 5 have dropped down and value zero OUCH! I think I will need that new $10000 tomorrow!


Cass - 20-8-2008 @ 01:26 PM

HOLY MOLEY!!
I just logged in to check my cash and I have Your Current Cash Balance $433,308.00 !!!!!"

haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa


pablo_honey - 20-8-2008 @ 10:15 PM

Wow Cass how did you manage that.......wouldn't it be great if it was the real stuff!!!!:P


Flutterby - 20-8-2008 @ 10:18 PM

In the rules it states that you cannot have more than 5000 shares or $5000 invested in any one celebrity. Well the leader "Entropy" has 46423 share in Frankie J, 25000 in Gregory Peck, 15000 in Kim Novak, 202300 in Liza Minnelli, ok so I know that these have dropped off the top 500 so aren't worth anything now, but maybe that is how the 24 000 000 they have banked came from.
I was really enjoying this game until I saw that :(


Flutterby - 20-8-2008 @ 10:27 PM

I have contacted them about it and will let you know the reply :)


Cass - 20-8-2008 @ 10:31 PM

I have no idea how i did it lol
i bought up big on andy lee and jack black and the little cherubs paid out on me, i think i paid 10 cents each share for them


Maggie72 - 20-8-2008 @ 10:54 PM

Hi, I have applied to join the mini league...please accept me?


missmuffet - 20-8-2008 @ 11:09 PM

Interesting debrastasia35 - wonder how that could be? :o

Cass, could we have your daily share tips please??:P:P;)


Cass - 20-8-2008 @ 11:28 PM

buy low is all i did hunny


icebox - 21-8-2008 @ 04:17 AM

Eric Bana is nice and low at the moment - hoping he gains some $$


timtam - 21-8-2008 @ 05:21 AM

I can't work out how to buy a celebrity!!!!!

Can someone help? I've tried selecting one from the drop down menu, but nothing happens.


Dink - 21-8-2008 @ 05:55 AM

timtam, after you select from the drop down menu, scoll further down the page and the details of how many shares you want to buy should be there.


Dink - 21-8-2008 @ 05:58 AM

When the celebrity you have chosen goes off the board and is worth zero dollars, do you just hold on to them in the hope that they will be resurrected again????? :o;)


redwins - 21-8-2008 @ 06:03 AM

Don't know Dink I have 3 (and about $7000) in celebrities now worth zero. Man I am so good at this game LOL I am just going to leave them a while and hope they go up ???


prizesgalore - 21-8-2008 @ 06:11 AM

I also emailed them about how the person in 1st position had hundreds of thousands of shares when you're only allowed 5000 shares per celebrity at the most. Looks like they've taken their account away cause they are not in the top 20 any more


timtam - 21-8-2008 @ 06:15 AM

Thanks Dink!


Islandboy - 21-8-2008 @ 06:18 AM

started off in 6th place, yesterday morning. Down to 44th the next morning.

HINT: if its down to zero, you DON'T HAVE to sell for $0; However they MAY bounce back.
I did this the morning with all my funds, except for 10c. Came back and they had all crashed to ZERO. So will buy 1 10c share when there's one as low as that. I MADE THE MISTAKE OF SELLING ALL MY ZERO SHARES (which I didn't have to do, so down to 10c)

However my husband's a/c is doing much better. If going out or away sell some or all shares to have as a surplus when you get back; as sharemarket crashes can happen in a matter of a couple of hours. WILL NOW ALWAYS KEEP SOME CASH IN RESERVE.


Islandboy - 21-8-2008 @ 06:27 AM

Looks like positions will chop and change and the same person won't necessarily be in the top 20 everyday.

That person in number one, shares probably all went to zero and also may not have had a lot left unspent.


Dark Enigma - 21-8-2008 @ 06:29 AM

Dink, you can hang on to them and hope that they will come up again - but keep in mind you can only have a max of 10 celebs, so might have to sell some for $0 if they all do that.

If you run out of money, they will start you again at $10,000

Dark Enigma, have you held on to the zero value shares (500+) position, and have they risen again?


Cass - 21-8-2008 @ 06:36 AM

I would say to sell them as they have no hope of coming back because once they get to 500+ off the board they can't be bought anymore, plus they take up the space for shares as you have the limited amount, did that make sense? lol I lost a packet today lmao!


Cass - 21-8-2008 @ 06:39 AM

hmmm i just logged in and i'm right back to where i started so no idea whats happened? lol bloody grumble grumble


Islandboy - 21-8-2008 @ 06:46 AM

Sorry about the wrong advice, it says in the FAQS

That if shares are zero, its up to you if you sell them for zero dollars, or hope they bounce back.


Obviously has it pros and cons, selling some to make more money faster


Islandboy - 21-8-2008 @ 06:55 AM

Thanks Dark Enigma, be pretty boring if You couldn't play for next 6 months. I suppose you have to wait until the next trading day for another $10,000?

Its good that there not an 'elusive' winner in first place that no one can catch up to (like other simulation comps).

Can't see myself playing this every single day for the next 6 months. Fun but very time consuming.


Dark Enigma - 21-8-2008 @ 06:59 AM

Yes, bought Mr T at $40 odd, by the next day he was zero - hung on hoping that he would go back up again. Today was $36 so I sold. Lost some money - but not nearly as much as if I had sold him at $0. It really depends if you think that someone is popular enough to get back into the top 500. I have sold others that I didn't think would come back.

Dink - 21-8-2008 @ 08:50 PM

How can you lose money from your bank? Yesterday I had a big $55 in my bank and this morning it is gone; although I didn't get below my original $10000. I think I still had two or three hundred left to play with. :o

Just wondering .............

Make a bit better money over night but still got quite a few who aren't in the list - will hold on for another day in the hope they pick up. ;)


redchairoutside - 21-8-2008 @ 09:36 PM

I am confused...I have a cash amount left in the top right hand corner...My shares have done well overnight...but when does your credits go into the bank account at the bottom? There is zero in there just like in real life:(


Flutterby - 21-8-2008 @ 09:58 PM

The amount at right is the amount of cash on hand ie: $10 000 play money plus any shares sold today. The amount at bottom is the amount that was auto banked by the game as excess in cash over 10k. So kind of think of it as your purse or wallet at right and at 2am the game automatically banks any money you are carrying over the 10k to the bank seen below.

I had shares that have been at 0 for 3 days and now are worth heaps more than I paid for them :) Stocks changed sooooo often yesterday. Think about the timing and check on your shares. There are peak hour times online too and as the shares move with the amount of times they are searched keep your eyes peeled for news stories on celebs. ie: I should have kept my Gwenyth Paltrow shares as she is in the news todday and likely to be searched more today. Watch out for the weekend, I can only assume that they will all move alot more than during the week.


Dink - 21-8-2008 @ 10:19 PM

The rules state:
"For a weekly dose of upcoming celebrity events and who's tipped to hit the cyber headlines, simply register for a Citibank clear card and we'll deliver the goss straight to your inbox. Those who are already Citibank clear card holders are already eligible."

Does anyone have one of these cards and get the inside goss that they would be willing to share???? :o


redchairoutside - 21-8-2008 @ 11:29 PM

Thanks debrastasia35 for your response
Thats why I am confused as I have $50,000 in total share value but zero in the bank?


Flutterby - 21-8-2008 @ 11:38 PM

Share value is what you currently hold in shares - so if you have $50 000 in shares you may have 5 celebs each returning $10 000. (just as an example) Over the right hand side (near the log out button) of the screen you will see a cash on hand amount that is the amount to be banked.

dawn1004 - 22-8-2008 @ 12:32 AM

I did ok yesterday, I bought a heap of shares in Eric Bana at 10c and today I've got $50,000 worth on him! good on ya Eric.


redwins - 22-8-2008 @ 01:29 AM

Me too Dawn1004, go ERIC!!!


ilana182 - 22-8-2008 @ 03:26 AM

I went for Eric Bana too yesterday! Ka-ching!!!


ilana182 - 22-8-2008 @ 03:28 AM

I bought a bunch of shares in Kelly Rowland today because she's only 60c ... fingers crossed she goes up!


ilana182 - 22-8-2008 @ 03:45 AM

I've also gone from Elijah Wood and Dusty Springfield, because they're also very low.


icebox - 22-8-2008 @ 04:10 AM

Kelly Rowland and Elijah Wood here too. managed to buy Leelee Sobieski earlier for 10c but she has just dropped out of the 500 now.
So glad I held on to my Jet Li!! Very nice profit :)


Lucky12 - 22-8-2008 @ 05:14 AM

Has anyone noticed that the number of shares they hold in a celebrity has gone down to only 5? I've had this happen twice, I'm sure I've had at 50-100 shares yesterday in Enrique Iglasias but today he's gone up heaps yet my share holding has dropped to only 5 shares. I wonder if this is a bug in their system?


inkababy - 22-8-2008 @ 05:19 AM

yes the same thing has happened to me twice but i dont know why either


rychbytch - 22-8-2008 @ 05:23 AM

When the person who you bought drops out of the 500 they will only leave you with 5 shares in that person


tyecart - 22-8-2008 @ 05:23 AM

I've had the same thing happen a few times too with the 5 shares... I thought I was going mad and I must have picked 5 shares by mistake?

Tye


redwins - 22-8-2008 @ 05:26 AM

I have 3 people out of the top 500 since yesterday and I am holding on hoping they come back up - but anyway my number of shares has stayed the same (eg 75 in Keira Knightly- still the same as when I bought).


redwins - 22-8-2008 @ 05:27 AM

Do they maybe drop to 5 after a day or so do you think???


tarzwal - 22-8-2008 @ 05:39 AM

cannot seem to buy any at the moment. Anyone else having this problem ?


Dink - 22-8-2008 @ 05:45 AM

My 5 sub-zero celebrities still have the original number of shares (I think). No fives, but I might make a note of the number to see if it changes.


icebox - 22-8-2008 @ 05:48 AM

It's because of the auto banking that happens at each morning.
From the FAQ:
Important note: We will always keep 5 shares in a celebrity – Therefore, if we still need to bank more profit – the ‘Auto Sell’ facility will move onto your next highest value celebrity – and so on, until your are left with an ‘Investment Budget’ of $10,000 (or slightly under*) from 02.01AM AEST onwards.


rychbytch - 22-8-2008 @ 05:50 AM

Sorry I was wrong on the 500 listing - here is the full explanation

Step 1: Your ‘Investment Budget’ – We will check how much ‘cash’ you have not tied up in ‘celeb shares’ and bank that first.

If you have no ‘cash’ as all of your money is tied up in ‘celeb shares’ – or – you still have a ‘profit’ over $10,000 tied up in ‘celeb shares’ – we will move to ‘Step 2’.

Step 2: Release equity tied up in your ‘celeb shares’ - We will ‘Auto Sell’ shares in your highest worth celebrity (This is the celebrity with the highest worth in dollars). We will sell as many shares as it takes until you are left with your investment float of $10,000 *

Important note: We will always keep 5 shares in a celebrity – Therefore, if we still need to bank more profit – the ‘Auto Sell’ facility will move onto your next highest value celebrity – and so on, until your are left with an ‘Investment Budget’ of $10,000 (or slightly under*) from 02.01AM AEST onwards.


simel - 22-8-2008 @ 06:02 AM

My 'current price' does not change at all throughout the day. They seem to only change over night. Is this the same with everyone?


ilana182 - 22-8-2008 @ 06:06 AM

I read something in the GLOSSARY that said something about it automatically sells off shares for you each night if they exceed $5000 worth or something...


redwins - 22-8-2008 @ 06:11 AM

simel, mine havent changed through the day only overnight but I have seen some change through the day I went to buy one in the list at 0.60 and when I clicked on then they came up at 20 odd dollars - drat too slow for me!

And tarzwal I am having the same problem at the moment, no button to press to buy celebs ???


redwins - 22-8-2008 @ 06:13 AM

ps simel just noticed your location about 5mins from me!!!


rychbytch - 22-8-2008 @ 06:16 AM

When I logged on this morning - the nightly autobank had occurred and I decided to sell all my shares as all had risen and quickly bought some more. I then went out for 3 hours and logged on and the site had updated as my share values had again risen - so this morning I was lucky enough to make $467,000 in 3 hours lol

Quickly sold that lot too - now waiting for another site update :P:P


Dink - 22-8-2008 @ 06:18 AM

Mine changed sometime between 12 and 12.30 today. Perhaps only some celebs change and if you haven't got them chosen, you don't notice it. :o


redwins - 22-8-2008 @ 06:20 AM

wow rb and I am patting myself on the back for banking $75k today haaaa! Well done!

Also realised why I cant buy any celebrities - I already have 10 including a few hopelessly worthless hangers on!!


twinmacs - 22-8-2008 @ 06:23 AM

Nice:):)

I have made $950,000 since mid morning....now only if that was real stock in real money in my name :D:D:D

Thanks for your reply redwins
It seems to have fixed itself. Perhaps it was doing an update


dawn1004 - 22-8-2008 @ 01:18 PM

When I got back from work today, looked at my shares, I was still winning with Eric bana, sold him, and I also got $72,000 on Christina Ricci

Just invested in Lenny Kravitz - he's on 10c, and Justin Timberlake he's at 80c


this is fun, although I think I'll tire of it after a short time.. but it's nice to see the money grow - if only real shares grew like this in my portfolio!


Dink - 22-8-2008 @ 08:58 PM

I'm starting not to like this game. I bought 1400 Anastacia shares for $3.50 each and this morning they are $49.50 which is good. However, overnight they have only left me with 5 shares!!!!!!!!!

Everyone is at 0.00% :(


preece - 23-8-2008 @ 08:59 AM

maybe you made to much money rb. How do people bank so much overnight? Mine was only about 50000 should I not sell the big movers when they go right up until the next morning?


redchairoutside - 23-8-2008 @ 09:00 AM

A terrible day here too...They must be changing something...Just when I was getting the hang of it....This is way too addictive....I have not entered one comp since I found this...and I am surrounded by barcodes and receipts...so off I go! To watch the footy soon....GO PIES!

Yup made some good money on Lenny and JT and sold them, I bought another 10c celeb this morning and a 60c one but they'e gone to 0.00 now!

I bought John Stamos at $8 as they looked like they were on the way up but have remained no higher than $12.60, hoping they go up also.

Its a real pain that they take some shares away and leave you with just 5 shares of certain celebs (but oh well its only play shares!)

Does anyone know when the first weekly prize goes off - which day?

At least one of my celebs has been kind to me today. marie Osmand went from 60c to 153,000 today as i bought her this morning.who would have thought she would be so popular


simel - 23-8-2008 @ 02:32 PM

Anyone else coming across a glitch when they are trying to buy celebs right now? I have 7, am trying to buy another but when I choose a celeb to buy it takes me back to the 'choose a celebrity' page. I managed to sell ok...


redwins - 23-8-2008 @ 02:38 PM

hi simel I just came here to see if anyone else was having that problem too! Just sold ok but can't buy and I want to buy so I can go to bed.....


tyecart - 23-8-2008 @ 02:40 PM

Yep - same problem here. I can't seem to buy. I'll just have to sell some of them and leave 5 in the bank coz I'm tired too and want to go to bed.

btw in the last 5 minutes all my celebs have gone out of the top 500 so I have no value but I have banked $650000 today so plenty of money, but I thought maybe because I have 7 duds now they wont let me buy???


simel - 23-8-2008 @ 02:45 PM

I have 6 celebs now with a $0.00 balance but they've been like that most of the day and I've still be able to buy celebs until now. I've still managed to bank $1,062,000! Better than yesterdays $1500 lol


redwins - 23-8-2008 @ 02:48 PM

Dark Enigma - 24-8-2008 @ 08:16 AM

Just finished my buying and selling for the afternoon - now it seems to be broken again like it was yesterday. All of mine are suddenly showing as 500+ (including Brad who hasn't budged from the $40s all week). No option to buy anymore either.


Lee05 - 24-8-2008 @ 08:24 AM

I still do not understand when they change the figures. Doesn't seem to happen at a regular time each day. I am going insane, updating or refreshing to see if they have changed.

And this finishes in February 2009 - wow :(

Yep - just to put this comp into perspective:-

193 days of competing for lets say $10,000 (as its 1/100 of the Million chance)
works out that if you win the $10,000 and play for 193 days you are actually winning $51.81/day.


Dark Enigma - 24-8-2008 @ 09:31 AM

But it is too addictive to stop *grin*

Unfortunately not doing much doesnt apply if you're entering to win first prize with this comp :)

You need to be able to sit and trade at least 4/5 times a day between the 20 hour trading period and research your celebs to maximise your profits. Then there is still no guarantee you are going to win!

Anybody that works at least a couple of days a week really has no chance in taking out the major prize as they will miss too many trading opportunities.

But anyone who just wants to have some fun, knowing they probably won't come close to being the final winner, then trading every now and again at least gets you some entries into the weekly draw :):):)


Cass - 24-8-2008 @ 10:09 AM

yeah i'm just in it for the fun, and the CHANCE of a weekly, not expecting much if anything at all.....def not going to be in the top 20 any time soon I think, all fun i think.

tyecart - 24-8-2008 @ 11:53 PM

Ok guys - I am going to give you a big FAT hint in case you haven't figured it out yet ;)

Bookmark this site:

http://search.live.com/xrank/results.aspx?

It gets updated about 45 mins to an hour BEFORE the results go on the Fixated site.

You will be able to find out where your celebrities are at and get rid of them early if they have dropped, and also pick up all the ones that are skyrocketing!

If you regularly check the site - I am sure the next update may be between 11.00 - 12.00. I notice the updates tend to be about every 5 hours.

Good luck,

Tye:):):)


preece - 25-8-2008 @ 12:40 AM

ahhh so thats how your doing so well tye!! Thanks will try and remember to look


tyecart - 25-8-2008 @ 01:10 AM

Ok that site has changed now - so go for it.

ie. Timbaland who was at 495 or something like that is now at 18.

Tye:)


Cass - 25-8-2008 @ 01:20 AM

I bought timbaland this morning so that was a good move huh lol


preece - 25-8-2008 @ 01:20 AM

thanks tye I had already bought timbaland but got a few others at bargain prices!


ilana182 - 25-8-2008 @ 02:25 AM

Yay my Timbaland bet paid off!


Cass - 25-8-2008 @ 02:29 AM

hmmmm my ones haven't moved?


Cass - 25-8-2008 @ 02:31 AM

ahhhhhhh there they go now
woohoo made a packet this time around Kiefer served me well too@!

redwins - 25-8-2008 @ 02:47 AM

Thanks Tye missed this time round as they are already all up there. So if its every 4-5 hours I'll check it later. Thanks so much.


Bigam - 25-8-2008 @ 02:50 AM

I had keifer and timbaland as well so I'm happy.


Webbi - 25-8-2008 @ 02:51 AM

Cleaned up on Timberland too wahoo.

Trouble is though I told Mr Webbi about this comp and the mini mogel has been wheeling and dealing all morning. I'm gonna have to crow bar him out of the puter chair!


prizenetta - 25-8-2008 @ 03:17 AM

Thanks for the much needed tip Tye:)

It nearly looks like I know what I'm doing now:P


pineapples1 - 25-8-2008 @ 03:30 AM

Wouldn't let me buy timbaland when it was 60 cents...so annoyed coz hubby was able to and he is probably beating me now...not fair!:(

Edit: Bugger, I just checked his account and he is now beating me by heaps.....Not Happy Jan!


simel - 25-8-2008 @ 08:17 AM

It wont let me buy any celebrities again. I'm guessing this happens when they're updating the site...


preece - 25-8-2008 @ 08:25 AM

simel it happened to me too but I just closed everything and opened it all back up again and it let me, so glad I held onto my Jules Lund;)


simel - 25-8-2008 @ 09:35 AM

Mine hasnt updated since this morning, has anyones?


preece - 25-8-2008 @ 09:55 AM

nope I keep checking too, want those dusty springfields to move up!!


thinkwin - 25-8-2008 @ 01:40 PM

aawww man! i was having fun blind trading... now i find out there's a secret. darn it. sorry tye but ignorance was bliss


tyecart - 25-8-2008 @ 02:09 PM

Just don't check the link then :P:P

I was really just trying to help out our League a bit more and the comp goes for so long it doesn't really matter.

Tye:)


kelster200460 - 25-8-2008 @ 02:35 PM

Who on earth posted this ridiculously addictive game anyway's?
I have no chance of winning, I could win for the most money lost in a day :D


rainman1 - 25-8-2008 @ 09:29 PM

Has anyone been left with no money ....this happened to me this morning i had one celeb who should have paid me $141,000 overnight but they took 4,995 shares cff my only winner.......:(.......thats after making....$2.15 MILLION YESTERDAY...........:) ......NOW I HAVE NOTHING to play with today ....i guess all i can do is leave them there and hope they go up. I thought the bank left you with $10,000.


Cass - 25-8-2008 @ 09:30 PM

yeap same thing, I bought 5000 Gillian Anderson last night and shes gone up YAY but i only have 5 shares this morning!!


prizesgalore - 25-8-2008 @ 09:33 PM

Same here rainman. First time I've had nothing to play with in the bank.


chrisp43 - 25-8-2008 @ 09:34 PM

Me to.I only have 6 thousand left.


Kibby - 25-8-2008 @ 09:39 PM

why do they take all your shares except 5?


Flutterby - 25-8-2008 @ 09:46 PM

I think everyone needs to email them about the theft of shares when not need to be sold also about them not leaving us with the 10k float each day. This has happened 3 days running now. I used the 'contact us' link on the right and advise everyone who is having issues to as well. Maybe the leaders aren't having the same probs as some of us are. I was doing so well till I keep getting left with not cash even though I banked 1.8mil last night, with only 5 shares in each celeb and no cash not much I can do :(


tarzwal - 25-8-2008 @ 09:51 PM

They take the shares because at the start of each day you can only have $10000 in shares and/or money for the new trading day. Your shares that have value and money combined cannot exceed $10000.

If you are over at bank time, they sell excess shares and they bank the money that the shares have been sold for.

If you have a read of how to play, there is an example and it is clearly detailed.

Go here http://fixated.ninemsn.com.au/default.aspx?page=home&n=autobank to see the example


Cass - 25-8-2008 @ 10:04 PM

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ty for that


Webbi - 25-8-2008 @ 10:08 PM

what I don't understand is why the took all the money I had banked yesterday aswell. Yestie I had 241,000 now I have no money at all and all my shares have been taken except 5 of each. I thought the amount of money you had in the bank was what gave you your ranking?

and I should say my share value is also less than $10,000. Whats the point of making money during the day if your cash balance is taken off you overnight?

the night before I made a profit of $38,000 and that was left in the bank.


Cass - 25-8-2008 @ 10:15 PM

the money gets banked overnight darl
the money you have during the day is just in your pocket so to speak. spending money. Anything in excess of the 10 thou is banked and locked away and added to your tally, no idea why your shares don't add up to ten thou, maybe they did then they dropped??


Webbi - 25-8-2008 @ 10:17 PM

Sorry darl I'm not being deliberatly dumb here but banked where?? and I just checked Mr webbi's too and he only has about $8000 worth of shares too


Cass - 25-8-2008 @ 10:20 PM

okies go to the 'my portfolio' link and scroll down the page there should be a section called 'my bank account'

TOTAL BANKED MOVEMENT VALUE WEEKLY BANK MOVEMENT VALUE LAST TRANSACTION IN LAST TRANSACTION OUT HIGHEST BANKED DAILY AMOUNT HIGHEST BANK VALUE

it has all that in it and it tells you your totals

also if you click on the league tag it tells you the top 20 but your name will be right up to top with how much money you have banked and your position in the comp


Webbi - 25-8-2008 @ 10:23 PM

thank you very much darl I found it there just over 1.7 mil in there :P

ps I think its too early in the morning for me yet :P:P


Cass - 25-8-2008 @ 10:24 PM

phew!! lol I would hate to think you were being ripped off.


rainman1 - 25-8-2008 @ 10:35 PM

Tarzwal...Thanks so much for your reply to my winge you answered my question perfectly.....:D


tarzwal - 25-8-2008 @ 10:40 PM

Glad I could help:)

Just remember between bank time and the time you log in there could have been share movement as well - and therefore may not equal $10000 eg: some celebs could have moved below 500 :( or skyrocketed :)


rainman1 - 25-8-2008 @ 10:56 PM

Tyecart....THANK YOU so much for that info .........:):D

ilana182 - 26-8-2008 @ 02:38 AM

Why hasn't the xRank been updated yet!? :(


rainman1 - 26-8-2008 @ 03:48 AM

I am guessing it will update at about 3pm


preece - 26-8-2008 @ 04:08 AM

Ive been checking about every 1/2 hour, its driving me nutty because I sold everything this morning!!


rainman1 - 26-8-2008 @ 04:29 AM

I wonder if they vary the times it updates just to keep everyone guessing so we have to log on to and use the search more......?:o

As soon as it updates or every time it updates lets note thoes times here so we can predict them each day...;)


tyecart - 26-8-2008 @ 04:36 AM

I have to say it was definately more regular than this till yesterday... I nearly had the times downpat before as to when to come back to the computer.

Tye

Hoping I don't miss it, it's nearly time for school pick ups:o


preece - 26-8-2008 @ 04:50 AM

i bought some cheap shares in timbaland just to be safe


zen - 26-8-2008 @ 04:51 AM

I bought my celebs at 8.00 this morning and nothing has been updated since then.

I know why they call this Fixated - I have a fixation with it - how can I stand it for 6 months :D


ilana182 - 26-8-2008 @ 05:16 AM

I bought mine at 6:30am this morning and still no update!

ScALLIwag - 26-8-2008 @ 06:51 AM

Maybe the promoters are getting wiser.. this is the first place I'd look for feedback about how a comp I was running was going. Maybe there's a spyyyyyyyy hehe :D

Thanks for the heads up tye :)


preece - 26-8-2008 @ 07:04 AM

just saw on the site where it says they get it from there:P I should read everything.
Guess we wont be banking anything tonight!


preece - 26-8-2008 @ 08:37 AM

it just changed but not by much like usual


rainman1 - 26-8-2008 @ 08:38 AM

ok ... the celeb search xrank site has just updated at 6:30 pm.........at last it hasnt moved all day.....:)..

so if you want to make big $...get on ...Ron Howard he has gone up from 500 to 10 so for $00.10c x 5000 shares you should end up with more than $200,000...........:P


preece - 26-8-2008 @ 08:43 AM

noooo the prices have gone up already!! I missed Julia gillard for 20cents now 40something:(


preece - 26-8-2008 @ 08:46 AM

I sold my timbaland to go get others and then he went from 1.10 to 39 man I hate this game!!!


dusk2dawn - 26-8-2008 @ 08:51 AM

I just made nearly 1.8 million.

Do I sell now, or will they stay up till banking time?


missmuffet - 26-8-2008 @ 08:57 AM

Sell!


icebox - 26-8-2008 @ 08:58 AM

Sell


dusk2dawn - 26-8-2008 @ 09:02 AM

Thanks guys, I nearly S$%& myself when the amount came up as I just picked them myself and not from the Live Search about 2 hours ago.

Just havin a bit of fun on this site and have no idea about buying and selling shares.

Ranked 110 at the moment.

:P:P:P:P:P:P:P:P:P:P:P


missmuffet - 26-8-2008 @ 09:07 AM

Well done, that's a huge score!


dusk2dawn - 26-8-2008 @ 09:15 AM

Thanks missmuffet :P:P:P:P


Fingers crossed - 26-8-2008 @ 09:31 AM

I'm coming up behind you D2D I am 112

I am not sure what I am doing, but seems to be working

having fun:P:P


dusk2dawn - 26-8-2008 @ 09:43 AM

Fingers crossed, Fingers crossed at least we have each other not knowing what we are doing.........LOL :P


kakadu - 26-8-2008 @ 09:47 AM

Well done guys! I'm getting the hang of this... I'm ranked 89th!!:)


pineapples1 - 26-8-2008 @ 10:01 AM

I only started a couple of days ago and am 113! Just behind you Fingers Crossed. Our computer died last night so hubby only had 3 celebs (so didn't get banked) and he has much more cash at hand than me (he held on to Timbaland and made heaps)...pretty sure he will be alot higher than me tomorrow.


sarah4mike - 26-8-2008 @ 10:18 AM

woot woot loving this!!! bought Ryan Cabrera last night at 10c :-0


kats - 26-8-2008 @ 10:23 AM

OMG just logged on again, to check how things were going, YIPPEE

i brought carrie underwood early today for 40cents just sold my shares for $49.30, $73,950.00 in value

:D:P:D

maybe i know what i'm doing


pineapples1 - 26-8-2008 @ 11:12 AM

if only the cash were real hey? LOL


kats - 26-8-2008 @ 11:36 AM

I agree with that, would love the cash to be real:D


missmuffet - 26-8-2008 @ 12:16 PM

You'd think it were real, the amount of time I've spent 'playing' this!:P:P


Bigam - 26-8-2008 @ 11:34 PM

good time to sell if you haven't done so!


randj8380 - 27-8-2008 @ 02:38 AM

Ooooh, I've just read the terms & conditions.

Even you if win in first place, you dont automatically win $1 million. You play a game where you pick 1 piece out of 100. 1 piece has $1 million on it, the other 99 are $5,000. So even if you win the game, odds are you'd win $5,000.


Dark Enigma - 27-8-2008 @ 02:41 AM

Yep - definitely mainly in this one for the weekly prizes - and the fun.


preece - 27-8-2008 @ 02:54 AM

looks like its going to be another late update:(


pineapples1 - 27-8-2008 @ 03:05 AM

Well, I think I may leave this to hubby now as I only moved up 10 last night to 103 but he jumped to 69th! So think he is better at this game than me.

Hey, why do lots of your shares get put back to 5 overnight?

simel - 27-8-2008 @ 05:30 AM

Has anyones updated since 8am?


Dark Enigma - 27-8-2008 @ 05:57 AM

Seem to only be updating in the evening at the moment.


ilana182 - 27-8-2008 @ 06:11 AM

This. Is. Killing. Me.


Dink - 27-8-2008 @ 06:18 AM

One only of mine updated and all the rest are sub zero!!! :(


sarah4mike - 27-8-2008 @ 06:20 AM

Same here dink! All the cheapos went to $0.00 I reckon


dusk2dawn - 27-8-2008 @ 06:22 AM

I went from 110 ranking to 52 overnight.......:P


Dark Enigma - 27-8-2008 @ 06:27 AM

Mine has finally updated too.


missmuffet - 27-8-2008 @ 06:28 AM

Yer same - but more like downdated!


kakadu - 27-8-2008 @ 06:53 AM

I agree!!! :o:(


elfgirl - 27-8-2008 @ 07:01 AM

Just checked mine, not all the cheapos went to $0.00
I got David Spade for $0.50 he is now at $23.00 and I got Ange Lee for $0.40 and is now at $16.50

But the rest of my cheepies are $0.00


preece - 27-8-2008 @ 07:16 AM

same as mine elfgirl, might be time for me to go do some searches on them to get their numbers up!


elfgirl - 27-8-2008 @ 07:51 AM

;) I went and did some searches too hehe


dawn1004 - 27-8-2008 @ 10:57 AM

Just wondering if anyone knows what happens if you go away and can't access your portfolio for a few days? I'm going away for 14 days adn won't be accessing the i/net at all during this time - will they close my portfolio - will I be left with no shares/no money? can you 'suspend' your portfolio for a short period?


missmuffet - 27-8-2008 @ 11:16 AM

Eek! 14 days - dunno I'm sooooo addicted I will not be going anywhere for at least 6 months LOL
Seriously though, I did not 'play' for 2.5 days and still banked a couple of million, so I know it would be right for at least that long?


zen - 27-8-2008 @ 11:44 AM

Dawn I'm worried too and I'm only going away for 6 days! The stress of it all :o:P


Cass - 27-8-2008 @ 11:58 AM

I stress if i have to go out for the arvo!


zen - 27-8-2008 @ 09:08 PM

What's happening with this $#@% game :mad:

Brandon Lee's xRank is 1 and I have 5000 shares but it's showing his share value as $0 and he's below 500.

The same with Axle Whitehead who's 14 on the xRank but my 5000 shares are worth $0.

I just don't get it!!


kakadu - 27-8-2008 @ 09:45 PM

Things have changed - I had it all sussed and now it does not seem to follow it's own rules !!! :o


rainman1 - 27-8-2008 @ 10:53 PM

Zen, the shares move overnight,the bank may have taken shares as well as stated in the rules. It happens to everyone , i had the same celebs overnight and i have ended with the same result............;)


missmuffet - 27-8-2008 @ 11:08 PM

Well I've got Brandon as well and it has shown any movement yet. If it went up overnight, it would have auto banked but it didn't and I would have banked more than $0 for yesterday?


rainman1 - 27-8-2008 @ 11:08 PM

Has others noticed that on some profiles Elizebeth Taylors share price is listed as $00.01c thats one cent .......What the.....#%&*.........:P

so she went up to number one and paid $50 a share therefore $50 x 100= $5,000 for one share so you bought 5,000 shares thats ...um.......ah..........$25,000,000 cant be right......:o
Update: one cent @ number 1


missmuffet - 27-8-2008 @ 11:12 PM

I snapped up that lil bargain!:D


rainman1 - 27-8-2008 @ 11:20 PM

when did you buy it and was the bought price stated at one cent?


missmuffet - 27-8-2008 @ 11:26 PM

About 10 to 7 and it was 0.01c, but listed her as ranked 1?


Cass - 27-8-2008 @ 11:28 PM

I bought her too, hopefully something comes out of that


tarzwal - 27-8-2008 @ 11:55 PM

Maybe we are buying when they're updating?

Xrank - just confuses the situation. Doesn't always follow that what is moving there is reflected on fixated

Read the FAQ

I believe that if you don't have activity on your portfolio, it just stays there

From FAQ
"I don't want to play anymore. How do I delete my Portfolio?
We cannot delete Portfolios. If you no longer wish to play the game you can contact us to unsubscribe from our database."


rainman1 - 28-8-2008 @ 12:04 AM

a share cant be priced at one cent so this is clearly a mistake

each rank is worth 10 cents there are 500 celebs on the xrank list that you can trade at anytime.


tarzwal - 28-8-2008 @ 12:07 AM

Yay I made loads last night :D


preece - 28-8-2008 @ 12:27 AM

think they have some intern doing it today, not only with liz taylor at 1c but theres 2 natalie bassingthwaightes and I dont think any had the same share prices before but now theres heaps on $10 and a few at 40c


icebox - 28-8-2008 @ 12:33 AM

There's been 2 Natalie Bassingthwaightes the whole time each with their own spelling.


rainman1 - 28-8-2008 @ 12:33 AM

yes i found three celebs on $1.40.....clearly another mistake, there must be a problem with this site


rychbytch - 28-8-2008 @ 01:17 AM

My Brandon Lee is showing as No. 1 with the correct dollar amount - maybe they have just updated it


icebox - 28-8-2008 @ 01:17 AM

Looks like it's updating


kats - 28-8-2008 @ 01:21 AM

i just logged back on after a small break and two of my very small celebs have just skyrockted!!!!!:D:)

If they are different they could have the same price - why not?

NUMBER 500...........10CENTS
499............20CENTS

Number 1..............$50

500 x 10 cents = $50 IF YOU THINK THIS IS WRONG LET ME KNOW...........Anyone..........:)

How do Celebrity Shares Fluctuate?

Quote:

We will monitor the Top 500 XRank celebrities - These are the most 'searched' Celebrities through Live Search. For each position gained or lost in the XRank Top 500 they will either add $0.10 or lose $0.10 to their share price.

For example: If Madonna is a 500 on the XRank Top 500 List she will be valued at $0.10 a share, if she hits the headlines and moves up to 100 in the XRank Top 500 List - she would have moved up 400 places and therefore made her share value now a whopping great $40 a share.


Quote from my post this morning:

Quote:

Brandon Lee's xRank is 1 and I have 5000 shares but it's showing his share value as $0 and he's below 500.


I'm happy to say that there must have been a glitch in the system and my share value rightfully went up :D

I usually avoid ninemsn comps as there always seems to be problems with them and this one is no different!! They need to employ some decent IT people.


prizenetta - 28-8-2008 @ 06:29 AM

I just lost $30,000:mad:
I had 10 celebs went to pick up my son and now their all worth zilch....waaahhhh:(

Must be having an extended blonde moment rainman1 - still not sure what you mean :mad:

I don't understand what the relevance of the 500x10 cents means.

Thanks Cass and elfgirl, I should have gone back to the original thread to realise I needed the password.

Thanks for all your help, I am at least 80% sure of what I am doing now, never ever bought shares or played the stock market before, guess I should have taken that Economics class way back in high school.........:P:P:P:P:P:P:P:P:P

elfgirl - 28-8-2008 @ 10:40 PM

Why did I loose shares?


Bigam - 28-8-2008 @ 10:52 PM

I'm finding that when I try to buy someone, it gives me a different price! Tried to buy Dakota Fanning for $1.00 but told me price was $13!

Anyone else having this?


elfgirl - 28-8-2008 @ 10:59 PM

Sorry Bigam, I can't help, that's not happened to me

Yes I'm having the same problem too! Very frustrating :mad:


Bigam - 28-8-2008 @ 11:32 PM

I don't know what happened, but some shares I bought 20 minutes ago skyrocketed! Chris Isaak that I'd just bought for 10 c went up to over $40! SAme with Valentino Rossi!!

Now Dakota Fanning works at $1. Seems I might have been buying while they were updating things but now it appeas to be okay!


redwins - 28-8-2008 @ 11:40 PM

I just sold some Andy Lee shares expecting to bank $80000 and it didn't go to my account, sent them an email and it says:

NOTE: We will reply to your query via the email address that your team is registered to.

Does that mean it ends up in lottos email????


layz - 28-8-2008 @ 11:41 PM

Just joined. Please accept me.:)


elfgirl - 28-8-2008 @ 11:45 PM

I just made a packet off valentino too - yay


kelster200460 - 29-8-2008 @ 12:07 AM

I have the same problem, I brought 5000 shares in 3 celebs and now they have skyrocked and it's telling me I only have 5 shares this morning. :(


Dark Enigma - 29-8-2008 @ 12:19 AM

The 5 shares thing is in the rules:

"The Criteria our clever ‘Auto Banking System’ will use is as follows:

Step 1: Your ‘Investment Budget’ - We will check how much ‘FIXATED cash’ you have not tied up in ‘Celebrity Stocks’ and bank that first.

If you have no ‘FIXATED cash’ as all of your money is tied up in ‘Celebrity Stocks’ – or – you still have a ‘profit’ over $10,000 tied up in ‘Celebrity Stock’ – we will move to ‘Step 2’.

Step 2: Release equity tied up in your ‘Celebrity Stock’ - We will ‘Auto Sell’ shares in your highest worth celebrity (This is the celebrity with the highest worth in dollars). We will sell as many shares as it takes until you are left with your investment float of $10,000 *

Important note: We will always keep 5 shares in a celebrity – Therefore, if we still need to bank more profit – the ‘Auto Sell’ facility will move onto your next highest value Celebrity – and so on, until your are left with an ‘Investment Budget’ of $10,000 (or slightly under*) for the start of the next Trading Day.

* Slightly Under – The ‘Auto Banking System’ will always want to bank as much profit for you as it can - so when selling ‘Stock’ it may have to round down the number of shares sold to maintain your Portfolio Investment budget at $10,000 or under. "


elfgirl - 29-8-2008 @ 12:20 AM

I just read back through the thread apparently it has something to do with ur $10,000 kitty and they pluck off shares to even it out starting with ur most expensive - of course!


elfgirl - 29-8-2008 @ 12:20 AM

Oh there u go, thanks enigma


Dark Enigma - 29-8-2008 @ 12:25 AM

But they sell them for you (at a high price), which goes into your banked amount - so in some ways they are doing you a favour. Prices could have gone down again by the morning (saves you being up at 2am trading).


rainman1 - 29-8-2008 @ 12:54 AM

If you want to avoid being left with no money have less than five celebs overnight that way the bank wont bank what you have although you may miss out on profits overnight you may have money to play with the next day.This does not work all the time as the four celebs you have may go below zero overnight but if that happends they may rocket up the next day.

Tip 2: Keep any celebs that you have a lot of shares in if they go below zero in value that is under the 500 mark.
When i started playing this game and my celebs went to zero i got rid of them even if i had 5000 shares in them....big mistake....as they may come back up again.........:)

It think it was updating this morning at that time (twice in about 10 mins was what I thought) If you try and buy when it is updating, this will happen.


Bigam - 29-8-2008 @ 01:32 AM

If you've got shares on David Duchovny - hang onto them!!!

I can't find any to buy so he must be under the 500 mark

simel - 29-8-2008 @ 02:28 AM

I'm starting to lose patience with this site :s


prizesgalore - 29-8-2008 @ 02:47 AM

A tip from me. If you notice those in the rank 480-500 they are in alphabetical order so best to choose someone starting with A... :) if they are heading down the scale.


layz - 29-8-2008 @ 06:22 AM

Ok. My first go at this. I bought 10 celebs this morning all under $2.60. 4 of them are now between $29 and $38. Do I sell now? Or do I get greedy and hang on?:o


chrisp43 - 29-8-2008 @ 06:23 AM

time to sell.


layz - 29-8-2008 @ 06:25 AM

Thanks crisp. Will do. Another question for the experienced. Does the best price thats shown beside a celeb mean best price ever or best price for that day only?


preece - 29-8-2008 @ 06:33 AM

ever layz and if I was you Id grab your maximum you can for Eric bana right now;)


elfgirl - 29-8-2008 @ 06:34 AM

tip: buy celebs under $1.00 if they hit $0.00 hang on to them, they will jump!

I have noticed most of them reach over $40, I usually sell then and buy up on the cheapos.

Also best time to trade I found is early morning, well for me it has been


missmuffet - 29-8-2008 @ 06:35 AM

Best price ever.:)


layz - 29-8-2008 @ 06:37 AM

thanks preece. Just bought 5000 Erics.:D


kelster200460 - 29-8-2008 @ 06:38 AM

I brought Boy george and Jason Lee for .20c & .40c yesterday now they are in 2nd and 4th place $49.90 each share now.

magwheels - 29-8-2008 @ 10:13 AM

It's all about stats for ninemsn.

Whenever their yearly report comes out they want to show how many more searches they had on their search engine than google did.
e.g the last comp they had search and win or whatever it was called. Forced people to search for things over and over again.
This one is doing exactly the same thing. People are seaching the celebs 1000's of times to bump up the celebs stats.

I love the comps but its really an unfair way for ninemsn to tell the world hey look we are beating google.

I bought a ton of Natalie Portman shares on Friday/Sat at $0.40 a pop - she is now in the top 20 - made about $40,000 in the space of a few hours (without even searching for her on livesearch myself!).


jaxsaur - 31-8-2008 @ 03:52 AM

Lucky enough to make $250,000 profit overnight, but just bummed out in that last update & lost bout $20,000... Damn:mad:

This one is doing exactly the same thing. People are seaching the celebs 1000's of times to bump up the celebs stats.

I love the comps but its really an unfair way for ninemsn to tell the world hey look we are beating google.


Well if thats the case I think we should approach google and tell them to run a comp with much better prizes!:D:D:D

Kenny Chesney 491 $1.00
Lil Wayne 492 $0.90
Linda Ronstadt 493 $0.80

Nina Simone 500 $0.10


Strange.... their ranks are in alpa order.


Dark Enigma - 31-8-2008 @ 07:52 AM

Yes, the lower ranked ones have always been in alpha order. The X-Rank scale is still relatively new - so am assuming that it started out in alpha order before any searching.


elfgirl - 31-8-2008 @ 07:58 AM

i went out and come home made heaps, then i traded, went out again come home and lost a little :(


dusk2dawn - 31-8-2008 @ 08:23 AM

wow - I did gr8 in the last update:):)

... I just like the idea of being in the weekly draws;)


rainman1 - 31-8-2008 @ 09:18 PM

I made 3.3mil yesterday and went down from 49 to 63 ......thats nasty..................:o..


elfgirl - 31-8-2008 @ 09:48 PM

yay I banked 13 mil last night! :o


prizesgalore - 31-8-2008 @ 09:56 PM

How can the leader have 10000 shares in one celebrity???
I banked 5 million last night :)


Flutterby - 31-8-2008 @ 09:58 PM

They can't unless they are cheating. This happened before with another leader and if enough people email them about it they will remove the shares. I hope that they invoice all the transactions for the winner to make sure no cheating.


dusk2dawn - 31-8-2008 @ 10:01 PM

I will email now, is it only one player or several?


Flutterby - 31-8-2008 @ 10:05 PM

That is the only one I could see but of course I am only looking at the top few. They removed the last person that had 50 000 shares in a couple of celebs

starlight_2008 - 31-8-2008 @ 10:09 PM

Thanks for the comp


elfgirl - 31-8-2008 @ 10:14 PM

10,000 :o

I will email too.

If I accidentally click on a celeb I already have 5000 shares in it tells me I can't get anymore.

Why do people feel the need to cheat?


Flutterby - 31-8-2008 @ 10:17 PM

There is a lot of money on offer to the highest portfolio when the comp ends.

elfgirl - 31-8-2008 @ 10:21 PM

yea there is alot of money at steak but everyone has the same chance of winning.

Oh well looks like he has no chance now.
Cheating doesn't pay LOL


sarah4mike - 31-8-2008 @ 10:22 PM

woohoo

I banked $4,503,767.00 just from buying all the cheap ones all day yesterday.

That's the way to do it Sarah, well done :)

Well done, it's all fun and I am honestly not in it to win although it would be nice.

I just love the thrill of buying and selling and not spending my own money.

I have 2 days off, so will be able to check thru the day.


Dice - 31-8-2008 @ 10:41 PM

I have emailed them about the leader as well, so hopefully something gets done about them... wonder if he has secretly been cheating to be at the top all this time?

I was out most of the day yesterday but was still lucky enough to bank $6,031,282.50 this morning...
But Miss12 is still beating me lol she banked almost 6.3 mil...


elfgirl - 31-8-2008 @ 10:44 PM

I am home all day today so I will be able to check while catching up on all the sept comps LOL


tarzwal - 31-8-2008 @ 10:49 PM

My OH is the leader.

Not cheating.

Just dedicated and checking and staying up to catch all the updates, like the others that are still in the top 20 (not just OH)

Sleep deprived, but just wanted to get a top ranking for a week in the hope of winning something

I guess the dedicated suffer by being called cheaters. I am so disappointed that you have sent emails. We haven't been out in a week and just wanted to be able to win something once!


And - if you look at the amount that was banked by the others in the Top 20 its about the same.

I'm shattered at the attitude!

Don't think that they are. I reckon it's a glitch in the system. Last week I bought 5000 shares in George Strait and it showed up as 10000. Was going to hold on to them, but he languished at position 1000+ for days so I offloaded. I definately didn't type in 10000, and every time I try it won't let me. I wasn't overly fussed as I was sitting in a very respectable:P 349th position.
Also does it read a bit funny, 5000 shares or $5000 which ever is greater. As that would mean 10000 shares at 50c each?
Dunno?

Tarzwal, I have in no way referred to any leaders as CHEATERS, I also believe there is a glich in the system as I have emailed them a couple of times when some of my shares are showing 500+, but are in actual fact 2nd or 3rd.

I give kudos to all the leaders as I reckon they have done a good job.

Good luck to your OH..........;)


Dice - 31-8-2008 @ 11:05 PM

It could well be a glitch in the system, there seems to be plenty of them happening IMO....
but then again dont all these ninemsn comps have problems?

tarzwal, If the result of your OH having 10,000 shares of one celeb is from a glitch, you best let them know about it or otherwise your OH's account may get wiped....

This must have been a glitch as he updated this morning. Have removed the shares - happy

If his shares are deleted I will cry after all the sleep deprivation we have gone to to get to this position

How do you let them know? Just the contact us on the site ?

yeah that would be the best bet...

I have to agree. There are many many glitches in this game, its very unprofessionally run, and I hope your OH doesnt lose his shares over some emails!


Flutterby - 31-8-2008 @ 11:30 PM

tarzwal I am sorry if it is a mistake that your OH has been given too many shares. I don't want to see you penalised for their mistake. I only take issue with people who deliberately cheat to win. I know how much effort is involved in staying in the top 50 let alone the top 20 so I take my hat off to your OH for getting that far. Just send them an email via the contact us tab on the right middle of page and let them know the situation. There have been people who have had several celebs over the 5000 share limit obviously giving an unfair advantage. I formally withdraw my remarks about cheating in your OH's instance if it is a genuine mistake, as it sure sounds like it is. I hope they can fix it up for you. Sending off another email to them now to try to find out why this is happening to unsuspecting players.
Good job for getting so far.


layz - 31-8-2008 @ 11:48 PM

I checked this morning and had banked a very respectable $4.6mill but it has only left me with a total of $3000. I thought you were meant to start with $10k each day. Can anyone shed some light on this?


Webbi - 31-8-2008 @ 11:54 PM

Thats what I thought too Layz but hubby and I were both left with about $3000 worth of shares and no cash. The shares hadn't dropped between 2am and when I logged in as all our shares were still at around $40+ and we only had 5 of each.


Dark Enigma - 31-8-2008 @ 11:56 PM

Layz - shares can go down between when the bank opens again at 6am and when you log on for the morning - for example I only have around $2000 to play with this morning.

Edited: yes, I have just looked at mine as well - only one celeb with more than 5 shares - and they are at 500. Have emailed them a query.


Dice - 1-9-2008 @ 12:09 AM

Yeah there was a share price change at around 6.30 this morning so they could have gone down then.


Dark Enigma - 1-9-2008 @ 12:13 AM

No definitely something funny going on - only have one celeb with more than 5 shares - and they have only moved up 1 place since yesterday - I have checked the graph against the celeb that lists the price that they are at 2am every morning for the last week - definitely didn't plunge. Anyone else who has this prob - I would email them.

elfgirl - 1-9-2008 @ 12:22 AM

I also ended up with a heap of shares at 5, that's the part of the game I don't get.


Tarz,
By the sounds of it, yes a definate glitch. I too am sorry for my reference to cheating regarding ur OH.


Dark Enigma - 1-9-2008 @ 12:33 AM

Elfgirl, they are meant to sell your shares for you and leave you with 5 shares per celeb - however they are also meant to leave you with a float of around $10,000 cash and shares to play with later that day. The shares can lose value between them assessing the $10,000 and when you log on - however that is not what has happened in this case.


elfgirl - 1-9-2008 @ 12:38 AM

Oh k I got it. So with me being left with $1300 today was a mistake, I just checked and I now add up to $10,000 so they must have fixed it

Thanks for that Enigma


layz - 1-9-2008 @ 02:31 AM

I still only have around $3000. I'll email them.:)


Dark Enigma - 1-9-2008 @ 02:35 AM

Yes, mine is still at around $2000. I mean, I know that I don't have any chance of winning this one (having a five month old just doesn't allow enough time on the computer - especially at the unsocial hours *grin*) - but I do wish that this game didn't have so many gliches. Don't have much money to play with this morning now.

This looks more than double the average of what everyone else made last night.

Looks like you need to double check after you have completed your investments.

Lesson learnt for all of us today :mad:



The site is updating SELL

Edit: The site is updating SELL (or not) Most look as they have turned to $0.00


Dark Enigma - 1-9-2008 @ 03:50 AM

Think that I will give up for today - first I only had $2000 to play with (didn't get reimbursed as some people did) and now all bar one of my celebs that I could afford to buy have slipped below 500.

New cheapies are:

$1.00 Reba McEntire
$0.90 Rod Stewart
$0.80 Shaggy
$0.70 Suzi Quatro
$0.60 Timbaland
$0.50 Toby Keith
$0.40 Trent Reznor
$0.30 Vanessa Williams
$0.20 Willie Nelson
$0.10 Natalie Saleeba


jaxsaur - 1-9-2008 @ 04:03 AM

Man, really bummed out in the last update:(


tarzwal - 1-9-2008 @ 04:07 AM

The reimbursement was definitely not right this morning.
Think it was the same for everyone. I was totally confused when I logged in.

I think that if you got a updated celebrity at the 6.15-6.30am update, then you wouldn't have noticed the problem if you hadn't logged in before then.


prizenetta - 1-9-2008 @ 04:47 AM

Grrrrrrrrr this is driving me crazy today!
I'm down to $300 today:mad:

Now it's updating and won't let me spend the $300.
Whinge over...thank you for reading / listening!


dusk2dawn - 1-9-2008 @ 04:55 AM

I have just checked my account after about 3 hours and I made a profit on Whoppi Goldberg of $290,000 and all the others went to 500+.

I logged in at 6.05am and bought Whoppi for 60 cents and then I went to buy next celeb and Whoppi went Whoppi and straight to 500+.

I lost $3500 in 5 seconds of buying her, but at least she paid out this arvo........;)

I have 301,000 in the kitty, compared to yestredays millions......


BTW...................... I dont think it is right to have the person at no.1's profile showing in full when you log onto the site, dont you think it is unecessary as you have the opp to go and look at the top 20 profiles anyway......why should they be exposed for ALL to see.......I dont think it is fair on that person.


Bigam - 1-9-2008 @ 07:37 AM

My shares haven't changed at all. I bought timbaland for 10c this morning and now he's $50 and my share value is still 10cents each!


tarzwal - 1-9-2008 @ 07:38 AM

updating - sell


Bigam - 1-9-2008 @ 07:43 AM

rainman1 - 1-9-2008 @ 09:36 AM

Dusk2dawn,,,,,its not possible to make more than $250,000 on any celeb......even if you bought them at 10 cents at 500 and they went to 1 they would make $250,000 max....:)


linda1963 - 1-9-2008 @ 09:47 AM

can someone post email address so i can ask to be reimbursed? thanks also wont let me buy anyone now!!!


linda1963 - 1-9-2008 @ 09:48 AM

edit found it


Ekajata - 1-9-2008 @ 10:18 PM

pl not sure what to do here. my shares have skyrocketed. if I sell all today it will be over 900K = yet i will lose the balance after buying again -right?


Bigam - 1-9-2008 @ 10:26 PM

you will only lose the balance at 2am tonight. If you sell all your shares - and obviously you've got shares to sell but you don't have to sell all of them - then the money go into the cash balance which gives you the money to play with. Then you buy yourself some nice cheap shares and hope they go up at lunchtime.

Right now I recommend you sell your shares that have made a nice profit.


Ekajata - 1-9-2008 @ 10:38 PM

thanks that is what I thought but double checking with my brokers is always good :):P

tarzwal - 2-9-2008 @ 01:14 AM

Just wanted to say a special thanks to the 2 members that u2u yesterday with a message of support:):):)

Good news was I got a reply from my "contact us" email saying that they are looking at the share problem


Last night (early this morning more like it) there was an update of celebrities - went up and down within a space of 20 mins. Last night these were the ones that most would have invested in last. So if you caught this window of opportunity you would have made a hefty profit and would have been able to reinvest in the same celebrities (although their new price was $1)

Pattern over last 2 days

Last two nights there have been updates in the early hours of the morning around 12.45am to 1.15am. It might me worth catching those times a couple of nights over the week (sometimes the change pays off, other times it doesn't)

Try and look at stocks at 6.00am to reinvest depending on what has taken place in the no go time period.

Last two mornings there has been an mid morning update. So login then as well

Good luck:)


tarzwal - 2-9-2008 @ 05:00 AM

updating - sell


rainman1 - 2-9-2008 @ 05:39 AM

preece - 2-9-2008 @ 08:50 AM

wow all my shares are at 0!!!!
Shouldve been searching them instead of winning nothing at the magnet game!!!!!


karen23 - 2-9-2008 @ 08:51 AM

mine too:(:D


Dink - 2-9-2008 @ 08:57 AM

I hope I win a weekly prize soon. I am getting sick of this game and will be lucky to last the month, let alone until February. :D:P:D:P
It's just a time waster and I think the only people who can do well are those who can access the computer all day and buy and sell.


preece - 2-9-2008 @ 09:00 AM

on another site they are now saying the share prices can go up to $75 each instead of the $50 limit it has been!!!!

Is Willie Tonga showing as position 1 this morning worth only 1 cent a share?? thankyou:)


tarzwal - 2-9-2008 @ 09:17 PM

Didn't notice that but he is.

It could still be in the middle of updating though.

Buy - he could go up to $50 and if he doesn't you haven't lost much

Not sure what's going on with this site

I bought up heaps of shares under $1 this morning and logged in about 10 minutes ago to check. It showed that most of them were up around the $15-20 mark each, so I thought I'd grab that extra bit of profit by selling.

Went in to sell one celebrity and then it wasn't showing the $15 price it had on my portfolio screen, it showed the current price as what I had purchased it for.

Did this happen to anyone else?

Yes, friend told me there was update. By the time I logged it, it was over and missed it completely.


nicolejane - 3-9-2008 @ 05:14 AM

I don't think it was up there long, and then they went back to the same amounts they were this monring.

That's why i wasn't sure if it was a glitch or a genuine update?

If there are quick movements like this and you can catch them, that's how you are going to make the most.


rainman1 - 3-9-2008 @ 06:02 AM

same thing happened to me i had over $600,000 each celeb was valued at around $70,000 value i decided to leave them and hope they would go up in value as most were paying $15 a share so i loged out then loged back in five min later and they were back down to the value i bought them at...and lost aver $600,000........i should not have been so greedy and banked them when i could......then i could have bought them back at their origanl price they are now....:o:mad::)


tarzwal - 3-9-2008 @ 06:14 AM

I tried to figure this site out before and haven't figured it out. Some have dropped on this site but gone up of fixated. If anyone can shed some light on how to use it probably - that would be great :)

Yes. It happens qite frequently but I think it's when theyre updating and comes good in 5 to 10 mins so keep trying:):)


Scatterling - 4-9-2008 @ 11:43 AM

Does anyone know what time the last update was made? It seems like my shares have been sitting on the same price all day (unless it's just the ones I have that haven't changed??)

S...


missmuffet - 4-9-2008 @ 11:46 AM

Haven't noticed any the couple of times I've logged in today.:)


kats - 4-9-2008 @ 11:50 AM

there was one update i know of between 7.00am and 9.30ish haven't noticed any since then, and i cannot even log in now:mad:


crazeecook45 - 4-9-2008 @ 01:01 PM

No updates here either-----maybe it's their staff picnic or something:):):)


Ekajata - 4-9-2008 @ 01:08 PM

maybe they are on retreat in thailand :D with our profits!!:P


rychbytch - 4-9-2008 @ 01:11 PM

if you search most of this mornings bargains they are now nearly all out of the top 500


rainman1 - 4-9-2008 @ 03:26 PM

this site does some strange things...


crazeecook45 - 4-9-2008 @ 03:47 PM

I believe you rainman ----site is very strange today.


Jesstibb - 4-9-2008 @ 10:26 PM

Sorry if this has already been asked but I don't have time to read 15 pages lol.

I had 5000 shares of each of my 10 celebrities last night and now four of them have only 5 shares each! Anyone know why this happens? Same thing happened yesterday.


icebox - 4-9-2008 @ 11:12 PM

At the close of 'Trading' each day (02:00AM AEST) our clever 'Auto Banking System' will search all Portfolios who are valued over $10,000 FIXATED dollars. The value of the Portfolio is based on the FIXATED cash left in the 'Investment Budget' and the value of your celeb shares at 02:00AM AEST.

All Portfolios with a worth over $10,000 FIXATED dollars will have any profits above the original $10,000 FIXATED dollars banked automatically - using our clever 'Auto Banking System'.

The Criteria our clever ‘Auto Banking System’ will use is as follows:

Step 1: Your ‘Investment Budget’ – We will check how much ‘cash’ you have not tied up in ‘celeb shares’ and bank that first.

If you have no ‘cash’ as all of your money is tied up in ‘celeb shares’ – or – you still have a ‘profit’ over $10,000 tied up in ‘celeb shares’ – we will move to ‘Step 2’.

Step 2: Release equity tied up in your ‘celeb shares’ - We will ‘Auto Sell’ shares in your highest worth celebrity (This is the celebrity with the highest worth in dollars). We will sell as many shares as it takes until you are left with your investment float of $10,000 *

Important note: We will always keep 5 shares in a celebrity – Therefore, if we still need to bank more profit – the ‘Auto Sell’ facility will move onto your next highest value celebrity – and so on, until your are left with an ‘Investment Budget’ of $10,000 (or slightly under*) from 02.01AM AEST onwards.

* Slightly Under – The ‘Auto Banking System’ will always want to bank as much profit for you as it can - so when selling ‘celeb shares’ it may have to round down the number of shares sold to maintain your Portfolio Investment budget at $10,000 or under.


rychbytch - 4-9-2008 @ 11:56 PM

Im a bit confused - easily done lol :P

There were no movements in share values yesterday as the site didnt update and nearly everyone on the Top 20 list had the same celebrities purchased.

So my question is how can some people yesterday have a banked total over $4million???? And the rest of us only have a bank total of about $1.6-$1.7 million???


Jesstibb - 5-9-2008 @ 12:05 AM

Thanks Icebox.

I think there was a bit of movement about 6.30am and again 1.30am last night. I banked and bought in the morning, but only 2.4 million.


rychbytch - 5-9-2008 @ 12:14 AM

Thanks!!

Seems strange that the same few people always get the quick share trades and updates.

Well probably not strange at all - more to do with using a program that lets you know when sites have updated.

Oh:( Is that a legit thing to do even?! I guess I've been lucky that I get on early am's - but couldn't be bothered staying up for the late changes.


rychbytch - 5-9-2008 @ 01:00 AM

Don't think it would be illegal at all.

But I think something very fishy is going on with this comp. For a promotion that is based on live searches of celebrities - I fail to understand without manipulation that random searches always produce rises in celebrity values in an alpabetical order.


missmuffet - 5-9-2008 @ 01:18 AM

True, and the first few days I was playing, I was just choosing celebs that were in the current mags or on ninemsn's home page, thinking they would be the ones that rise? I must admit some of them I hadn't even heard off or thought they were hasbeens:P and all of a sudden they are the most searched celebs on the net!!


ragdollsrule - 5-9-2008 @ 01:24 AM

I was doing really well with this game, but now for the last few days, my 5000 shares suddenly appear as 5, losing 4995, it did it 8 times today already, with losing this many shares I dont stand a chance, I have emailed them twice, but no answer as to why they keep taking these shares off me, I woudl be right up the top if this didnt happen, and it only seems to happen overnight, not happy :(


crazeecook45 - 5-9-2008 @ 01:41 AM

Ragdollrule---if you read the rules posted by icebox (above)
you will understand.:):
It is what happens overnight


prizenetta - 5-9-2008 @ 01:43 AM

just updated


ragdollsrule - 5-9-2008 @ 01:47 AM

thanks for that, I understand the overnight thing, but it didnt do it before, just the last couple of days, nevermind, will just go with the flow,


Dark Enigma - 5-9-2008 @ 03:43 AM

You only get bamked overnight if you have more than 5 celebs.


icebox - 5-9-2008 @ 04:23 AM

I am one of those near the top and I have just been doing searches on xrank and live search to see where celeb are. If I notice them move I usually check all of the ones I have and sell them then buy the ones that are moving up instead. Most of the time I start with the ones 500 - 491 and then just sell and buy when and if I notice them move.
There was a really quick update last night which I missed but some caught. It updated the prices to what they were showing at 6am - enough time for someto be able to sell a few, then it reverted back and they were then able to rebuy them at the cheaper price.


kats - 5-9-2008 @ 07:51 AM

site has updated:)


icebox - 5-9-2008 @ 02:40 PM

Updated :)


crazeecook45 - 5-9-2008 @ 03:49 PM

I'm giddy from all the updates today, certainly made up for yesterday:D


mystique32 - 6-9-2008 @ 03:31 PM

Something strange happening with this today :(

It has not updated at all for me and now all my shares that were mostly on the up are all now double red arrows down but still the money remains the same - yet no more to add to the bank

I have been in and out of here all day hoping for an update and I am currently unsure as to why I am still torturing myself with it

Hope tomorrow is better


rychbytch - 6-9-2008 @ 04:04 PM

There was an extremely quick update at 12:20 EST. Managed to sell off my shares and then bought again. Probably be left with no cash to trade with in the morning now.


Dink - 6-9-2008 @ 09:24 PM

No change at all overnight. Everything still the same as yesterday. :(


tarzwal - 6-9-2008 @ 09:47 PM

There were at least 3 updates yesterday.

The reason that it appeared that there has been no change is that the SAME celebrities went up and down on ALL the updates - all within about 10 mins or so

So if you missed checking the site at the update time (which was all over in 10 mins) it would have appeared that there had been no update.

eg: Ashley Judd went up to 49.00*
If you quickly sold you would have made a profit
Then in 10 mins or less she was 0.50* again

* just made these figures up for the example.

So if you caught the update, the wise thing was to reinvest in the same celebrities again and that is how the high banked amounts were made.

Was lucky to catch a few while out at friends

Hope that makes sense.


tarzwal - 6-9-2008 @ 10:44 PM

sell


prizesgalore - 6-9-2008 @ 11:24 PM

Woo hoo. I'm in the top 20!!!:D


SmileyG - 6-9-2008 @ 11:56 PM

My computer has such a hard time on this site. So much "Not Responding", freezing, and a lot of me trying to select a celeb to buy and the computer thinking, then just taking me back to the "Search Celebrities" page. I've got broadband, but due to my location (in the sticks!), it's not the best. Oh well, persistance is the key!


Dice - 6-9-2008 @ 11:57 PM

wow, we had a massive improvement in the leader board last night.. I went from 22 to 11 and miss12 went from 16 to 8....

We were lucky enough to catch a couple of those quick updates they did yesterday... especially the one that was after midnight, was just about to shut the computer down, quick check and shares had gone up, with-in minutes, they went down again...

I hope they dont continue to run it like this or no other comping is gonna get done especially with that FriendMagnet game lol

Good luck with all the updates they may do today :)

SmileyG this happens alot and I'm guessing that it is when it is updating celeb prices. Always worth a check after it works again to make sure that you haven't missed a cheapie

Looks like a few of us caught the quick updates yesterday:)


Ekajata - 7-9-2008 @ 01:09 AM

yep I miss out constantly as I know I am not putting in the time to this comp which is needed. As with 'normal' sharing trading you have to be on the ball - so well done to those persevering with this. I am ranked horrid however so be it.


tarzwal - 7-9-2008 @ 04:02 AM

Yikes - all prices just went to 0.0. Did anyone else see any change?


wmqa2005 - 7-9-2008 @ 04:08 AM

Sure did Tarzwal -- $0 value shares for me too


rychbytch - 7-9-2008 @ 04:09 AM

its happened several times before - usually on the weekends - nothing to panic about - it always corrects itself.


Hellbiddy - 7-9-2008 @ 04:11 AM

Yes all mine just went to 0 except one:o


zen - 7-9-2008 @ 04:12 AM

Yep all my shares are worth $0! I think it's a glitch as the xRank remains the same as when I bought the shares this morning.

I don't know about everyone else but I watched my shares like a hawk yesterday (from 9.00 am to 10.00 pm) and I didn't notice any change in shares all day. I also cut and pasted my shares to a word document so I could keep track of what's happening and there was no change all day :(

Zen the changes yesterday were so quick. I think I caught about 4 or 5 changes yesterday - sold and bought in a space of 10 mins each time.

xRank - I haven't seen this hold true except for the stars near the very top of the rankings.


There were definitely updates zen -(around lunchtime and about 4 something) can't remember the exact times but were really really quick and one early this morning at around 12.30am


Tip - sometimes if you refresh and you are in your account, it doesn't show the change as quickly. You are better off staying logged off and refresh on an account of someone in the top 20 and then as soon as you see the change, quickly log in.


rychbytch - 7-9-2008 @ 04:59 AM

Okay I took the risk and went and sold one of my "zero" shares to see what was happening with the other shares and its seems that anyone shares that are a '0' have all moved out of top 500 - so you might want to relook at your portfolio - or hold onto them - whatever your decide - but its definitely not a "system fault"

rychbytch - 7-9-2008 @ 05:48 AM

I know lol - such a deliminia! - I rebought new shares - I might crash and burn lol :P


tarzwal - 7-9-2008 @ 06:42 AM

sell if you changed portfolio


Scatterling - 7-9-2008 @ 06:44 AM

When all my shares flatlined earlier today, I bought Jason Gillespie for 0.50c. A minute later he was $15.00 so I sold quick smart. Went back in to replace him with another celeb I saw him back at 0.50c so bought him again.... Weird.


zen - 7-9-2008 @ 06:51 AM

All my celebs are now back at the price I paid this morning. I sold one half an hour ago and bought Julie Christie for .30c and now she's gone up to $14.80. Weird :o


Sweet Angel - 7-9-2008 @ 08:29 PM

Does anyone have any problem with losing shares?

For example: I have 10 Celebrities and brought 5000 shares for each one but this morning when I woke up, 4 of them had gone down to 5 shares and 1 of them have gone down to 4138 shares.


This has happened to me a few times. I thought it was hackers getting into my account and have been changing passwords all the time. I also have sent a complaint to the site itself but have had no reply.

Does it happen to anyone else?

magwheels - 7-9-2008 @ 08:33 PM

All players start each day with a daily value of $10000

I know this but I am actually talking about the share value? I brought 5000 shares for 10 Celebrities but when I woke up my shares had been taken from me. Four of them were down to 5 shares only.

SA


magwheels - 7-9-2008 @ 09:21 PM

If you have a look at the total share value - you shares will add up to $10,000


Sweet Angel - 7-9-2008 @ 10:28 PM

Wow, you are right!

Ok thank you for clearing that up for me. I really appreciate it. I always thought that the cash bank always started with $10000 not the shares total. Thank you for helping me with that!!

layz - 8-9-2008 @ 02:53 AM

Is it just me? My shares haven't really changed since yesterday. Is this happening to others?


kats - 8-9-2008 @ 03:01 AM

i've logged on about 3 times today with no change, i'm only finding now that the site is updating really early in the morning

they will prob change that again to keep everyone on their toes:P


jaxsaur - 8-9-2008 @ 03:06 AM

Mine hasn't changed since early yesterday morning:mad:


teakle007 - 8-9-2008 @ 03:14 AM

Mmmm... waiting.... waiting.... waiting.....


Dark Enigma - 8-9-2008 @ 04:59 AM

Site has been updated.

Edit: seems to be another quick update. First one that I finally caught (Dial-up is not conducive to being fast). Good luck if you caught it - prices have reverted back now.


layz - 8-9-2008 @ 05:47 AM

Well if they are going to keep doing these quick updates thats going to put me out of the game. Haven't got time to sit and wait!:(


Dark Enigma - 8-9-2008 @ 05:48 AM

Changed back again


prizesgalore - 8-9-2008 @ 05:53 AM

Mine was loading so slow. I had one worth $250000 and pressed sold just as it changed to $2500 instead :(


rainman1 - 8-9-2008 @ 06:08 AM

Wow...That was a wilde ride....site changed 2 or three times in about 40 mins......just made 3.8 mil......:)


Dark Enigma - 8-9-2008 @ 06:26 AM

Yes - am sure it is glitches in the site - otherwise it wouldn't revert to exactly as it was - definitely benefits people with a faster internet connection who can buy and sell quickly.


Bigam - 8-9-2008 @ 08:06 AM

I have made exactly $0 today. This is stuffed!


Jesstibb - 8-9-2008 @ 08:18 AM

I've had it open all day and been checking about every hour to hour and a half and haven't seen ANY change. This game blows..........but I guess I'll keep going :P

EDIT: I'd been on lottos too and hadn't seen any of todays posts on this thread, d'oh maybe I'm having lag issues or something weird.


magwheels - 8-9-2008 @ 09:12 AM

Hate this game...did like it...but not being able to access it at work (would be regarded as very unprofessional!)


Hate being penalised for not sitting on the 'puter all day...


Sorry ...just whinging because I feel like whinging....not really that stressed just tired and want to whine....Everyone else gets to whine - why can't !?


OK thats it dummy spit over.... Sell your shares everyone....


enchantedspirit - 8-9-2008 @ 11:20 AM

I just play thinking each time I trade its an entry for the other prizes, dont spend ages on it just do it for the entries.


icebox - 8-9-2008 @ 03:56 PM

Updated


magwheels - 8-9-2008 @ 08:07 PM

Good way to think Enchanted...I will keep that inmmand..Ta


Dink - 8-9-2008 @ 08:23 PM

So much for starting the day with $10000. After selling my shares, I am left with $547 to play with. :(:o:(:o


layz - 8-9-2008 @ 10:23 PM

I sold all mine last night, got up this morning and I had over $1.9mill. They didnt bank it for some reason?!?!?! Mind you I've dropped over 20 places now:(


tyecart - 8-9-2008 @ 11:03 PM

Layz - you have to keep at least 5 celebrities in your portfolio for them to bank your money.

It will catch up with you tonight though - just make sure you have the 5 celebrities.

Tye:)

layz there must have been an update before you got up if it wasn't banked.


karen23 - 9-9-2008 @ 01:52 AM

For some reason this morning I cant even buy any shares:(


tyecart - 9-9-2008 @ 02:26 AM

Site has updated if you want to buy/sell.

Tye :)


tyecart - 9-9-2008 @ 02:28 AM

I think it changed again just after I typed - the cheapies aren't cheap anymore!

Tye


CODY GIRL - 9-9-2008 @ 03:44 AM

Thanks:D,lots of fun:P:P:Pgood luck;)


rychbytch - 9-9-2008 @ 04:19 AM

Boy has it been going crazy in the last hour - totally lost track of what I should be buying and what I should be selling :P


crazeecook45 - 9-9-2008 @ 01:23 PM

Yes That was crazy RB:)

Is anyones crystal ball working? Does it show another update tonight????
That late one last night only gave me time to buy 4 celebs so didn't get banked, tidy sum for tonight because of that.
Would love to take superglue off eyelids and go to bed BUT could miss something:D


mystique32 - 9-9-2008 @ 02:19 PM

I've been logged into this for hours since late this arvo and haven't managed to catch an update at all :( been refreshing it every 10 -15 mins now for hours

I sure hope they are going to have another update

I fell 15 places yesterday due to road works cutting a testra cable and killing my phone for nearly 40 hours :(


kats - 10-9-2008 @ 12:23 AM

site has updated again:)

i had checked around 7.00am this morning and only had shares worth around $9,000 and then when i checked b4 they were over a millon:)


zen - 10-9-2008 @ 05:45 AM

Site didn't update until about 8.30 this morning. Has anyone seen any updates since then? My shares still seem to be the same as when I bought them at 8.30.


karen23 - 10-9-2008 @ 05:53 AM

Still the same as this morning.


tarzwal - 10-9-2008 @ 05:54 AM

I haven't seen a thing either :mad:


zen - 10-9-2008 @ 06:03 AM

Thanks, very quiet today compared to all the updates yesterday!


timtam - 10-9-2008 @ 07:28 AM

Ok, I am majorly suss about this comp....I don't believe that the celebs' prices change due to the amount they are searched at all.

I always go for the celebs that are under $1...

The other day I noticed that most of them had the surname LEE or the surname started with the letter L, then on another day they were all females, another day they were all starting with the letter J etc....

Today, I have noticed while looking at my portfolio that the surnames all end with the letter K...

Coincidence? I don't think so! ;);););)

Weird!


tarzwal - 10-9-2008 @ 07:39 AM

Who knows.....maybe the aliens have just seen some of our earthly celebrities and are telepathetically doing searches according to their alphabetical system :P:P:P

I don't think if the celeb is below 500 it makes any difference. Only the top ranked celebs.


starlight_2008 - 10-9-2008 @ 10:07 PM

Hi just joined the lottos mini league and my app is in the cue:)


simel - 10-9-2008 @ 10:34 PM

I havent noticed my shares change at all since yesterday morning. Has anyones?


Dink - 10-9-2008 @ 10:39 PM

No, mine haven't changed overnight (as they usually do). All still sitting on 30c or whatever.


icebox - 10-9-2008 @ 11:15 PM

Updated :)


timtam - 10-9-2008 @ 11:41 PM

Ooooh, all the cheapies end with the letter "L" today....those aliens know our alphabet! lol! :D:D:D


Dark Enigma - 11-9-2008 @ 02:01 AM

Won't give me the option to click on "Buy Celebrity" at the moment. Anyone else?


nicolejane - 11-9-2008 @ 07:06 AM

Has this updated for anyone today?

I keep clicking refresh every so often, but nothing's happening!


skipperbella16 - 11-9-2008 @ 07:19 AM

I've been checking all day but haven't seen any updates.


simel - 11-9-2008 @ 08:11 AM

No updates here...


chrisbabe1971 - 11-9-2008 @ 08:28 AM

Just appled to the lottos mini league. chrisbabe1971 and hubby's timbonus... Waiting for verification.


tyecart - 11-9-2008 @ 09:00 AM

Something must have happened in the last hour?? I worked today so was only able to sell my shares off from this morning - at about 5.30 and then bought all the cheapies - and now the prices are different? (mostly lower)


George Michael 490 $1.10 $49.70 4545 $4,999.50 $1.10
Alexis Bledel 491 $0.80 $46.00 5000 $5,000.00 $1.00
Lucas Grabeel 492 $0.90 $48.80 5000 $4,500.00 $0.90
Jessica Biel 493 $0.90 $48.70 5000 $4,000.00 $0.80
Gaspard Ulliel 494 $0.70 $43.00 5000 $3,500.00 $0.70
Josh Duhamel 495 $0.70 $43.30 5000 $3,000.00 $0.60
Zooey Deschanel 496 $0.70 $47.60 5000 $2,500.00 $0.50
Emily Deschanel 497 $0.40 $45.50 5000 $2,000.00 $0.40
Vin Diesel 498 $0.40 $49.90 5000 $1,500.00 $0.30
Katherine Heigl 500 $0.40 $49.30 5000 $500.00 $0.10


rychbytch - 11-9-2008 @ 09:13 AM

Dont know Tye but your current prices are definitely my bought prices, which I bought this morning - and it looks like your "value" prices indicates you bought at the current price - gawd hope that makes sense :P


Cass - 11-9-2008 @ 09:24 AM

I have made zero today!!
ZERO lmao
I so suck at this


magwheels - 11-9-2008 @ 10:31 AM

There was an update at about 1pm - very brief. My work computer (very naughty of me) - kept crashing so I could only manage to sell everything and the buy 5 poeple over an hour!

Katherine Heigl 500 $0.40 $49.30 5000 $500.00 $0.10


That's interesting.

I have monitored my stocks obsessively :mad: and have not seen any change. The prices I bought at are the same as the current value. Assuming that this is the same for those that bought at the morning update that was around 8-9am


tyecart - 11-9-2008 @ 10:37 AM

I don't know RB - something has changed?

I went through and bought the bottom 10 celebrities - starting at Katherine H for 10c... but if you look it says I bought her at 40c and she is now worth 10c.

Others have gone down too and some stayed the same. If you look at Alexis Bledil - it says I bought her at 80c - yet she is now worth 1.00.

As I said - I only got to buy these about 5.30 this avo - so not sure what has happened?

Go into my portfolio in the lottos syndicate and it might be easier to see what I am getting at???

Tye


zen - 11-9-2008 @ 10:42 AM

Your bought prices do look odd Tye. I also had to work and bought my shares at 5.30 pm and my bought price and current price are the same value.


zen - 11-9-2008 @ 11:05 AM

As Timtam pointed out all the cheapies end with the letter L.

If you look at ranks 210 (Tony Jaa) to the last one 1122 (Jay-Z) they are sorted alphabetically by the last letter in their name.

Except for the first 25 or so, up to 210 they are sorted in groups alphabetically by their first initial.

There's nothing random about this comp :o

zen, oic what timtam meant now.

magwheels - 11-9-2008 @ 11:24 AM

Tarzwal.. 1 pm was the first time I could log in and thats when I had money....

The increase could have been earlier!

Perhaps only the top 200 rankings are based on live searches and the ranking on the others are for our amusement, to keep the game interesting. Who knows:(

Thanks for the clarification magwheels :)


timtam - 11-9-2008 @ 12:40 PM

If the purpose of running this comp is to get ninemsn having lots of searches done, maybe they are hoping that the comp will make people search a lot to make the prices go up.

They obviously have their own little way of changing the prices, and it has nothing to do with searches! The alphabetical thing is not just a coincidence. I bet tomorrow all the cheap celebs have a surname ending with M....:o:o:o


crazeecook45 - 11-9-2008 @ 12:43 PM

The prices haven't changed for me. I bought them about 830am and haven't seen an update and my prices haven't changed I bought Kathryn Heigl at 10c and that's still what she's currently at

Bigam - 11-9-2008 @ 10:18 PM

Now my total portfolia is worth just over $1000 and most of my shares are only lefft with 5!!!

Aargh - why am I doing this!!!!!

That's right - the weekly prizes....


tarzwal - 11-9-2008 @ 11:30 PM

Bigam, being the sad fixated person that I am, I have made fixated as my home page.

When I logged in this morning there was one celeb to sell (after all the updates last night) and then there were updates immediately after I sold that share this morning

These new updates probably happened before you logged in.

From what I have seen it plays catch up most times anyway
eg: because you missed the morning update, your shares might all go up during the day, whilst because I caught the catch up this morning mine might all go to zero or a mix of going up and going to zero.

Its a bit hit and miss on deciding whether to sell or not each time.

Yep, only here in the hope of winning a weekly prize!


Bigam - 11-9-2008 @ 11:33 PM

The only people I could afford were Yasmine Bleeth and Toby Keith - how pathetic is that!

Thanks for the sympathy tarzwal. Been away in Melbourne for a few days and have fallen way behind with this comp.


CODY GIRL - 12-9-2008 @ 02:01 AM


chrisbabe1971 - 12-9-2008 @ 02:03 AM

I thought I had made a mistake ... But once again three celebs I had bought 5000 shares in are all down to 5 this morning. Does anyone know why this happens.

just checked hubby's portfolio and the same thing happened to his, except for one where he couldn't buy 5000 shares in. That stayed as it was.... grrr


edit... now after reading earlier posts I think I've got a handle on things

Profits are autobanked (shared sold) for you each day if you have more than five celebs.
However, they leave you $10,000 worth of shares to sell / buy again.
Hope this helps you;)


Jesstibb - 12-9-2008 @ 02:21 AM

I have to log back in every time I want to check my portfolio. Does anyone know how to keep it auto logged in?


Dark Enigma - 12-9-2008 @ 02:49 AM

It logs you out after 20 minutes of inactivity.


Jesstibb - 12-9-2008 @ 02:57 AM

urgh what a pain


groovytwitch49 - 12-9-2008 @ 04:43 AM

not so prizenetta.I left only 5 celebs in last night and all were down to 5 shares each.Nothing in the bank either.


prizenetta - 12-9-2008 @ 04:47 AM

At the close of 'Trading' each day (02:00AM AEST) our clever 'Auto Banking System' will search all Portfolios who are valued over $10,000 FIXATED dollars. The value of the Portfolio is based on the FIXATED cash left in the 'Investment Budget' and the value of your celeb shares at 02:00AM AEST.

All Portfolios with a worth over $10,000 FIXATED dollars will have any profits above the original $10,000 FIXATED dollars banked automatically - using our clever 'Auto Banking System'.

The Criteria our clever ‘Auto Banking System’ will use is as follows:

Step 1: Your ‘Investment Budget’ – We will check how much ‘cash’ you have not tied up in ‘celeb shares’ and bank that first.

If you have no ‘cash’ as all of your money is tied up in ‘celeb shares’ – or – you still have a ‘profit’ over $10,000 tied up in ‘celeb shares’ – we will move to ‘Step 2’.

Step 2: Release equity tied up in your ‘celeb shares’ - We will ‘Auto Sell’ shares in your highest worth celebrity (This is the celebrity with the highest worth in dollars). We will sell as many shares as it takes until you are left with your investment float of $10,000 *

Important note: We will always keep 5 shares in a celebrity – Therefore, if we still need to bank more profit – the ‘Auto Sell’ facility will move onto your next highest value celebrity – and so on, until your are left with an ‘Investment Budget’ of $10,000 (or slightly under*) from 02.01AM AEST onwards.

* Slightly Under – The ‘Auto Banking System’ will always want to bank as much profit for you as it can - so when selling ‘celeb shares’ it may have to round down the number of shares sold to maintain your Portfolio Investment budget at $10,000 or under.


karen23 - 12-9-2008 @ 04:48 AM

Same here GT.


prizenetta - 12-9-2008 @ 04:51 AM

If your share values are 0 it would be because the shares dropped again in value after 2am.
Which is when they share values are autobanked.
It's very confusing I know;)


tyecart - 12-9-2008 @ 04:55 AM

It depends though if there were any stock changes from when you logged in? Maybe there were drops in the celebrity stock you had from where they took the shares - and they dropped later - before you logged in?

Did that even make sense lol?

Tye


tyecart - 12-9-2008 @ 04:56 AM

Sorry Prizenettta - I only just saw what you wrote... and yours was so much more understandable than my dribble lol.

That was because there was an update earlier this morning.

You would have had 10000 in shares/value after automatic banking. But there were updates early this morning that you must have missed (it was around 6.40am or thereabouts). Your share value must have fallen again at this early morning update.

Hope that makes sense.

Same here Bigam. Can't buy much with $1000!! So much for leaving you with $10,000. Mine haven't moved all day, or if they have, it happened when I was at work.

Oh well, so long as I win one of these weekly prizes, I'll be happy!! :P;):D:P;):D


dawn1004 - 12-9-2008 @ 11:58 AM

hmmmm I think its broken.....

It auto banked 3.4 million for me this morning, however it left me with 5 shares in about 8 of my people, and some shares in the last two, however when I sold my shares I got got $4920.00 - so it didn't leave me $10,000 to invest today grrr.


I'm thinking next week I go away for two weeks, I'll never be able to catch up (not taking computer with us)


Bigam - 12-9-2008 @ 12:58 PM

Still got the same old shares from this morning worth just over $1000.

I would say that this game is stuffed but sonce I'm willingly playing it - I must be stuffed!


crazeecook45 - 12-9-2008 @ 01:32 PM

Hi Dawn---
My son won a weekly prize-----a sanity voucher for $10:D:D:D
That should keep you Fixated:)


Ekajata - 12-9-2008 @ 10:23 PM

mine are the same this morning as they were last night.....nothing banked....huh???


tarzwal - 12-9-2008 @ 10:39 PM

There were updates early this morning (just before 1am if memory serves...) before the close of trade at 2am. *Yawn*

The same stocks went up and down.

So if you were not there for that update you would have missed earning any $s


layz - 12-9-2008 @ 10:56 PM

SELL NOW!! Updated


Ekajata - 12-9-2008 @ 11:25 PM

cool....caught that one...but they are still exxy to buy :(


catbat - 12-9-2008 @ 11:29 PM

Had a look at the leaderboard..well done to all the lottos members & lottos group players! I have no idea how to play it so am just playing for the little prizes, but was very impressed with your efforts! Hope you get to beat our 'rivals' :D


Dink - 12-9-2008 @ 11:31 PM

Thanks for the thumbs up layz. Am so sick of sitting on $1000 of useless shares!!!!


crazeecook45 - 13-9-2008 @ 12:33 AM

I have 2 questions-----sometimes I am missing quick updates even though I'm refreshing regularly, maybe I should log out and in or is refreshing working for you??

Can I join my son to the Lottos League even thought he's not a Lottos member?


hammy101 - 13-9-2008 @ 12:36 AM

there seems to be updates going on at the minute. I am able to sell, but it wont let me buy...anyone else having this problem?


teakle007 - 13-9-2008 @ 12:37 AM

Yet again, waiting, waiting to see what will eventuate - have sold but not able to buy either.


catbat - 13-9-2008 @ 12:48 AM

Mark Wahlberg 399 $22.50 $46.90 100 $1,020.00 $10.20
Can anyone expalin the above for me.. It is saying I bought him @ $22.50 a share, It was actually $2.60! I also just went to sell one of my celebs at about 35.00 but when I went to it came up they were $0, I refreshed & it was back to the $35 !!


jaxsaur - 13-9-2008 @ 12:52 AM

Mines playing silly buggers too... first displayed I had 8 ppl, then refreshed itself to display 5?! Then I sold 2 & now it won't let me buy any more??:mad:


catbat - 13-9-2008 @ 12:59 AM

It has lee lee Sobieski & Marisa Tomei on the main buy list at $40+ & rising, but then if you click the snoozers list they ar on there at About $6 :o

I'm guessing that you are catching it as its going through its processing cycle before the next big update, especially if others cannot buy celebs.


rainman1 - 13-9-2008 @ 09:07 AM

changed at 6 for 10min


rychbytch - 13-9-2008 @ 09:24 AM

Is anybody getting tired of buying and selling the same celebs each time there is a quick update :P:P


zen - 13-9-2008 @ 10:47 AM

Sell now!!


prizenetta - 13-9-2008 @ 11:19 AM

Yay, I finally caught one of those super quick changes:D


layz - 13-9-2008 @ 12:12 PM

I'm getting very bored with this. If they are going to keep up with these stupid quick updates that you have to catch I'm just going to have to stop wasting my time!!:mad::mad::mad:

LOL! I was up so I was checking them :) Managed a nice sleep in this morning though


icebox - 14-9-2008 @ 03:19 AM

Updated!!


SmileyG - 14-9-2008 @ 05:08 AM

Nooooooooooo!!! I knew I should have sold at the 10am change. They were only worth $800,000, and had double arrows going up, so I thought I'd wait, and now they are worth NOTHING!!!!!! :( :( :( :(

I so don't get this game. I don't understand how one minute all the duds are the most searched celebs, and then the next they are back being the least searched for celebs.

I should just give up now, I don't think I can handle another 5 months of this...


icebox - 14-9-2008 @ 05:10 AM

You sleep:P Haven't slept properly for too long. Went mad with updates today. Was too scared to leave the site after the dog's early morning walk.

It's a full time day and night job for some of us(:(:(

Questioning whether it is worth the effort at the moment

:o


tyecart - 14-9-2008 @ 08:04 AM

We've not long got our power back on and it's been out all day with the bad winds etc...

I am getting a bit over this game though. Are there no other celebrities in the world that apparently get searched? I haven't even heard of half of these dweebs.... *yawn*...

Gawd let me win one weekly prize so I can finish with ittttttttttttttttttttttttttttt!! lol


Tye:)

Agree wholeheartedly!


rychbytch - 14-9-2008 @ 09:15 AM

Had 3 -4 hours out this afternoon enjoying myself but still have managed to make $10 million so far today with so many buy and sells for the weekly draw.

It is such a boring comp - same ol' celebs buy/sell buy/sell - certainly not rocket science is it lol :)

Im with you Tye bring on a weekly prize otherwise once I head away on holidays in October I know I wont be wasting any more time on it.


Dice - 14-9-2008 @ 10:08 PM

Must agree here, getting very boring especially all those updates yesterday with the same people time after time, this game is such a fix.... based on searches, yeah right who are they trying to kid LOL

Tazwal & RB, how the hell did you make that much yesterday? I thought we caught most of the updates... and I banked over 6 mil.. oh well do I give up now? :P

On a better note.... I finally passed Miss12 on the leader board... yay


Bigam - 14-9-2008 @ 10:13 PM

Well I didn't catch a single update! I slipped from 50 to 67 overnight and I was routinely checking the darn thing except when kids were playing Spore on 1 computer and hubby playing World of Warcraft on the other and going out for 4 hours for a coffee and watching Dr Who and doing study etc etc etc :)

Dice there were heaps of updates yesterday. So many I lost count. Some pretty quick ones.

Just hope a weekly prize comes my way so that I can get some sleep! and get back to entering other comps - too many missed :(

Oh no Bigam :(

rychbytch - 15-9-2008 @ 02:31 AM

Dice as Tarzwal said there were just so many updates yesterday it was crazy!!! And I went out in the afternoon and obviously timed it right as no more updates occured while I was out.


zen - 15-9-2008 @ 04:34 AM

Updated!


prizenetta - 15-9-2008 @ 05:01 AM

it won't let me sell...arrgh.

Must admit I'm a little over this after a freind emailed me telling me about an account with more than ten celebs:(
Have reported it to them.
How is that even possible:o

No idea how thats possible. There was an account early on that has vanished as it had more than 5000 or $5000 worth of shares in a celebrity.


kats - 15-9-2008 @ 07:02 AM

sometimes i'm only to buy 5 - 7 celebs and like i can now i can have 10 celebs

i have no idea why this game does the things it does

rychbytch - 16-9-2008 @ 02:38 AM

Nothing happened in my portfolio as those updates only changed the arrows of the celebs out of the +500 - changed them to green then changed them to red


kats - 16-9-2008 @ 02:57 AM

its updated again and i have lost alot of money :mad::mad: at least its not real money


levi - 16-9-2008 @ 02:58 AM

I think it just updated again coz I had $10000 worth then sold some and got back and had $0!!!


kats - 16-9-2008 @ 03:08 AM

mine hasn't changed


kats - 16-9-2008 @ 03:50 AM

updated again - can't keep up today:D


Bigam - 16-9-2008 @ 03:55 AM

I caught the change so at least I'll have more than $0 in the bank tonight.


Cass - 16-9-2008 @ 04:20 AM

bugga had to go out, obviously missed the changed and i now have $0 LMAO


Bigam - 16-9-2008 @ 04:23 AM

This game is driving me nuts! Why am I doing this to myself. Rant rant rant rant rant


Now please excuse me while I check for an update :)


Scatterling - 16-9-2008 @ 09:27 AM

How come everyone has moved up a place on the ladder during the day? I thought that only happened at 2am? :o

EDIT: Me too Cass!! LOL, I have a cash balance of 0.20c - nothing banked at all today but then it's hard when you're at work. ;)


Dice - 16-9-2008 @ 09:31 AM

It seems that the person that was in first place is gone....

Must have been removed, I didnt notice anything sus today so must have done something yesterday


Flutterby - 16-9-2008 @ 09:32 AM

They banked like $12mil yesterday - thought that was a bit high.


Scatterling - 16-9-2008 @ 09:34 AM

Aha that would explain it, thanks Dice! ;)


LisaBart - 16-9-2008 @ 11:10 AM

Haven't read back...but has this happened to anyone.....I bought shares at 20c 5000 shares on a few occassions and then found they are up to $49.60 and it says I have only 5 shares......I let it go the first couple times thinking I must have made a mistake in buying.....but I know I didn't ..........so right now I have barely anything in shares as some have dropped and the others are only 5 shares and not 5000.....
I have emailed them twice with no response......is someone stealing them????? grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr


Edit: Ok I read back and its not just me...but its distressing...they left me with about $245 :(:(:(:(:(


Dice - 16-9-2008 @ 11:18 AM

$12 Mil is possible to bank on a day when there are heaps & heaps of updates like Sunday but yesterday was a sorta quiet one so I guess they went the wrong way about it and got caught out.

They would have left you with about $10,000 but the shares you had left would have gone done when there was an update.

As per http://fixated.ninemsn.com.au/default.aspx?page=faq

Quote:
Step 2: Release equity tied up in your ‘celeb shares’ - We will ‘Auto Sell’ shares in your highest worth celebrity (This is the celebrity with the highest worth in dollars). We will sell as many shares as it takes until you are left with your investment float of $10,000 *

Important note: We will always keep 5 shares in a celebrity – Therefore, if we still need to bank more profit – the ‘Auto Sell’ facility will move onto your next highest value celebrity – and so on, until your are left with an ‘Investment Budget’ of $10,000 (or slightly under*) from 02.01AM AEST onwards.


Cass - 16-9-2008 @ 11:26 AM

still have nothing lol, I'm a bit crap at this


icebox - 16-9-2008 @ 11:44 AM

So that's 2 portfolios gone now. My theory with this one is have a bit of fun with it, catch the updates when I can (usually the late at night ones - love it when there's a few in a row:P , and be in the running for the weekly draws.

Like they know who the public is going to search on???? That is supposedly the driver behind the price changes, but we all know that's not true. This pretty much proves that. Trying to get everyone to flock to Live Search like mindless sheep and plugging away in the hope of increasing our celeb prices isn't going to work on us. They can't pull the wool over our eyes (LOL couldn't resist, sorry!). :P

Hi everyone, I've just signed up to this game too... after seeing the heading a billion times over the last few weeks my curiosity got the better of me!

Have applied to join the lottos.com.au mini league and am looking forwarding to making some virtual dough :)

As there are 41 pages to this thread so far, could someone please give me a brief description of how to win prizes? I've worked out how to play, just not how to win :)

Thanks in advance!!! :D


Cass - 18-9-2008 @ 10:57 AM

dizzy i believe it's a random draw thing....I think?? lol


dizzy - 18-9-2008 @ 10:59 AM

Oh right, thanks Cass and good luck to you :)


Cass - 18-9-2008 @ 11:09 AM

you too hun....................i've had no change in mine since the morning tho, lol I think they hate me a bit


Flutterby - 18-9-2008 @ 11:30 AM

Every time you make a transaction you get 1 entry into the draw. So the more you buy and sell the more entries you have in the weekly draw. First place at the end of the comp also wins a big cash prize. Currently a Lotto's members husband is leading the charge.
Good Luck :)


dizzy - 18-9-2008 @ 12:53 PM

Ooooohhh well that makes it interesting then doesn't it! So if you buy, say, Britney during the day, then sell, then buy her again, then sell, and so on... you get the picture LOL does that get me lots of separate entries? :D

Thanks for the explanation debrastasia35 :)


Flutterby - 18-9-2008 @ 01:14 PM

Yep I believe that every transaction you make gives you more entries but I would say that you would have to buy and sell the same celeb after each change-over period otherwise it would probably not register.


dizzy - 18-9-2008 @ 01:15 PM

Thanks deb :)

As soon as you have bought your shares, log out and then just refresh on your portfolio page. If you are actually in your portfolio, unless you notice price changes in the drop down menu when buying (which is the trigger to hit sell shares - there may be some time lag here so be careful not to sell all shares by mistake) you can't always see that they have updated.

Hope that makes sense

Check your stocks - you might be holding a different group depending on the choices you've made when buying and selling

Sell one stock and go see what is currently on offer at a low price


Flutterby - 19-9-2008 @ 01:22 AM

Yep that is what I have. Curently holding all the low stock Christina Rici etc

Edit: If you have missed just one update it will look as though your shares have not gone up because the same stocks are changing - only 2 blocks groups. You must have missed updates as they have been pretty fast and steady


tarzwal - 19-9-2008 @ 01:44 AM

QUICK - update


tarzwal - 19-9-2008 @ 01:56 AM

update - you need to stay and play and refresh on your account to get all the updates - many and fast


Flutterby - 19-9-2008 @ 01:57 AM

Turned the computer off then on and reloaded and I must have caught this update. I checked just after you guys posted the earlier updates so maybe something to do with needing to completely refresh the computer. I know some updates are super fast and ATM all the cheapies are the same as last night


Dice - 19-9-2008 @ 02:22 AM

Dice I think that I have posted all the updates (the ones that I have seen anyway) .. might have missed a one or so after 6.00am but before the 7.43am, so you should be able to roughly tell how many you have missed, if any

yeah looking back I think I might have missed about 3, was out something like 9 till 10am....

Oh well

rainman1 - 19-9-2008 @ 10:04 AM

I am still unable to get onto Fixated .....i can get onto lottos and any other site on the net ...it keeps coming up with IE CANNOT DISPLAY THIS PAGE...........very strange.
I have been playing all day.....may have been too successful and have been blocked for the rest of the night.....:P
Is there any computer experts in lottos land that may have an idea of whats going on......:)


tarzwal - 19-9-2008 @ 10:40 AM

I had major problems as well. Was locked out for what seemed like ages (half hour plus) when updates were happening at one point. grrrrrrr! I refreshed not long ago and it said something like service not available. Then I refreshed


All appears okay now rainman1. Maybe a reboot ?

ISP problem - you have probably used you quote of Fixated refreshing:P:P:P


thinkwin - 19-9-2008 @ 10:47 AM

Bigam - 19-9-2008 @ 12:49 PM

I touched base after being thrown off all computers for hours and nothing's happened!


tarzwal - 19-9-2008 @ 10:35 PM

There has been an updates-2- this morning already (early in the 6-7am time slot) since selling the stocks that had gone up in the autobanking period. For the early birds.

Suggest you get in and sell your stocks and buy new ones asap

It doesn't look as though there were any other updates last night

catbat - 20-9-2008 @ 09:35 AM

I just bought Ray Charles for $1 a share, but it must have updated at the same time & gone up to $23 a share.. WHich was grat except they charged me $23! & now I have a negative cash balance & can't buy any more! Has anyone else had this happen?
I don't understand why they keep emptying my cash balance as well..


Bigam - 20-9-2008 @ 10:08 AM

shandy12_3 - 21-9-2008 @ 12:42 AM

I had 5000 shares in a few diff celebs, now its saying I only have 5 shares :(:( Is that right????????? can they take shares off of me??????????


v6 - 21-9-2008 @ 12:56 AM

Yes overnight they bank all but $10000. So to do that they sell your highest value shares (but always leave you at least 5 shares in a celeb). Take a look at the info on autobank for more detailed explanation


shandy12_3 - 21-9-2008 @ 01:15 AM

ok ty :D:D I thought they were stealing my shares !!!!!! LOL

mind you I did a nice bank overnight ...... scratchin me head here :o


buffy13 - 22-9-2008 @ 01:12 AM

i know, my guy had three great shares, sold one then went to sell another worth around $30 and it was back at 20c.

you have to watch the price when buying or selling i have noticed that what it says before i click to go to buy or sell it doesn't mean that the price will be the same on the next page.


Ekajata - 22-9-2008 @ 01:21 AM

yep found that out - but I didn't know they just take celebs out of the list!!
how bizarre .
too exxy to buy now anything - so sitting on 3 or 4 and that is it for now :(

Flutterby - 23-9-2008 @ 02:50 AM

Have there been any updates? They don't seem to have changed?


zen - 23-9-2008 @ 03:18 AM

I don't think there's been any updates. The top 5 portfolios are still sitting on $10,000 worth of shares.

I managed to duck out and buy groceries and curtains and get back and there's still no change. Why do I put myself through this :P:P:P:o


CODY GIRL - 23-9-2008 @ 04:12 AM

Its 2:16 pm Still has not changed since B4 2am....Why am i doing this?.....I hope who ever is No1 at the end wins the Million cause $5,000 NOT ENOUGHT for the time they have put in to do it..........:P


hammy101 - 23-9-2008 @ 04:28 AM

I hope they win the million as well, it is not worth the effort for $5000. I am beginning to wonder if it is worth the effort for the weekly draws even!


Bigam - 23-9-2008 @ 09:23 AM

I haven't been on for most of day and surprised to see no movement has happened!


tarzwal - 23-9-2008 @ 09:21 PM

Did anyone see a movement in stocks yesterday?


Flutterby - 23-9-2008 @ 09:42 PM

No there was nothing. Watched all day.

Well there was the one update early that enabled me to buy up $9 999 worth of stock as that is all that I was able to bank from the night before. That sat there all day and payed off this morning at least.


Cass - 23-9-2008 @ 09:45 PM

banked exactly zero last night lol


ladyluc - 23-9-2008 @ 10:41 PM

hi guys I watched all day yesturday no movement at all but this morning I was pleasantly suprised so there was a change some time early this morning im not waiting around today though I have to go look for real money take care hoping is almost there win win win;)


wmqa2005 - 23-9-2008 @ 11:34 PM

Just wondering if anyone banked anything last night because I fell one place ... Curious as I thought that the rankings were based on what you banked ....and if everyone banked 0 last night, rankings shouldn't have change ... should they?


tarzwal - 23-9-2008 @ 11:49 PM

Banked 0.00 as well.

Some would have banked
(a)depending on what was in their portfolio on the day before yesterday if there was no changes yesterday or
(b) if there were updates yesterday.


I didn't see any changes yesterday and was monitoring all day

Hope that makes sense.


wmqa2005 - 24-9-2008 @ 12:29 AM

Perfect ... thanks Tarzwal


Dice - 24-9-2008 @ 12:56 AM

Banked 0.00 yesterday as well, but there must have been some changes yesterday as someone banked over 9 mill...

The people running this comp are getting sneaky, one day numerous changes and then a day like yesterday?
Im really starting to get sick of playing this as its not based on real results and with the way they are running it, its so fake and now they are dong all this stuff that is very unpredictable which doesnt make it fun anymore......
and I cant see us 2 here playing it for the full 6 months as we do have other lives, movies to go and see that we have won tickets for....

The other night while we are out, we walked pasted a internet cafe and suggusted we go in and check our shares.... LOL ... that gave me a sign that I should get over it hehe


CODY GIRL - 24-9-2008 @ 01:26 AM

Also banked 0.00,yesterday:mad: I watched from 7.30am to 10pm and did'nt see any change:(:(


tarzwal - 24-9-2008 @ 01:29 AM

I have been been putting in alot of time and energy in the hope of winning a weekly prize, seeing my 25WOL for other comps are not yielding any results

Seeing their blurb for weekly prizes said "the more you play the more chances of winning", I kept at it.

After last week's draw, not seeing a Top 20 winner, which to me contradicted the "the more you play the more chances of winning" theory, I contacted them to clarify how the weekly prizes were drawn.

This is the reply

" Hi

The weekly prize draw may be entered into by anyone who makes trades during the week. The overall draw however will only be entered by the top trader who will increase their chance of winning by trading regularly.

Regards

Support"

I interpret this to mean that as long as you play at least once in the week, you are in with an equal chance of winning a weekly prize.

So provided I am not already totally addicted :mad: will probably be reassessing the time and energy being put into this comp and getting some sleep!


mska - 24-9-2008 @ 01:29 AM

$0 for me yesterday, too.
Stupid game! :(


missmuffet - 24-9-2008 @ 01:39 AM

Very interesting, thanks for sharing tarzwal :)


Dice - 24-9-2008 @ 01:41 AM

Well tarzwal, for the time you have put into it and so far so good, Id like to see you stay at it and finish at top... its just a matter of winning the 1 mil then...

Problem is that 6 months is a long time.. cant understand why they decided to run it for that long...

I know we will never get near the top anymore... so we are just hoping for a weekly prize at least, cant be that many still playing it is there?


Hellbiddy - 24-9-2008 @ 01:51 AM

I've only been playing two and half weeks and have fun with the updates especially when theres three or four in a row but no updates for coming up 26 hours is just ridiculous can't really call the autobank change an update because that has to happen regardless at 2am everyday. Not looking good for today either unless theres a load of updates soon.

Why do we bother:D


missmuffet - 24-9-2008 @ 01:53 AM

hehe cos we're addicted.:P


Hellbiddy - 24-9-2008 @ 02:02 AM

Exactly missmuffet:P get up in the middle of the night to go to the loo but must check how shares went first as if were real money :P:P


Dark Enigma - 24-9-2008 @ 02:59 AM

Yes tarzwal, you get one entry per trade (eg. buy/sell), so the more often you buy and sell - the more entries into the weekly draw - that is why you have more chances the more you play.

rainman1 - 24-9-2008 @ 03:49 AM

There were no updates yesterday as far as i know.....but you can still bank profits even on a day when their has been no changes or updates. If before 2am... you only have to have less than 5 celebs and the money you have wont be banked so you will have money to play with the next day...:cool:


zen - 24-9-2008 @ 05:28 AM

For those stressing about having a few days away from Fixated don't panic. I know we should be enjoying this game but it is a bit stressful :mad: It would be good if we could play when we feel like it, not when the game decides.

Anyway, I went on a week's holiday. Before I left my rank was somewhere in the 200s. When I got back I had jumped up to 90 in the rank at some stage. I have never managed to get back up to 90 since :P:P:P:( I'm clawing my way back up from the 200s again.

So, if you do have to go away, make sure you've got some celebs you've heard of and are likely to stay in the top 500 and you will still make money and have celebs when you get back.


Scatterling - 24-9-2008 @ 07:29 AM

If there were no updates yesterday, how come 2 people in the top 20 banked approx $3.6m and $9.5m. Maybe there were lots of quick updates at unsociable hours? Or am I missing something?? ... Quite possible! ;)

EDIT: ok, understand now. Reading back to Tarzwal's post, it would also depend on what was in their portfolio when 2am autobanking happened. Thanks for the explanation. :)


missmuffet - 24-9-2008 @ 07:59 AM

Interesting point, and excuse me for being thick:P But, if it was just auto banking, the max amount of shares is 50000 and the max price they go up to is $50, so at 2am when it banks they could only possibly have $2.5 million at the most - unless there were updates? Or am I way off track...


rainman1 - 24-9-2008 @ 11:31 AM

If you look at my post above that explaines why you can bank more than zero in a day when their are no updates.


Scatterling - 24-9-2008 @ 11:34 AM

A-ha! So you can play for a week (for example) and not bank anything by having less than 5 in your portfolio at 2am? I've been too nervous to try that, I just assumed you lost it. Great to know, thanks! :-)

It depends on the stock mix as well. You cannot assume that everyone had the same stock portfolio (at the end of the day -not yesterday when we believe there was no trading - but at the close on the day before - when there was trading)

hammy101 - 25-9-2008 @ 04:14 AM

Not sure if you all know this already, but an easy way to find the cheapo celebs quickly is to view the source code on the 'Buy a celeb' page.

When you are on the 'Buy a Celeb' screen that has the drop down list, just right click and select View Source on the menu. That opens the page source code. Then just go Edit -> Find and type in $0.10 and it will show you who is 10c. etc.

:P

I have been scrolling through the damn list trying to find them :o

Thanks Hammy - you learn something new every day - very much appreciated - such a timesaver.


teakle007 - 25-9-2008 @ 06:16 AM

The other thing you could do in the dropdown menu, once you know who you're looking for, is actually type the first few letters in of their name. The cursor should then jump straight to their name.

If you had no cash means that you missed an update after the 6.00am open. eg: there would have been an update between 6.0am and when you logged in.

Its seems to have corrected itself. So try and login now

yeah normally i manage to get in before they take all my money away and i didn't go in any later than usual...............sneaky me thinks

:P


hammy101 thanks for that:):):) Makes life a lot easier:cool:

Aaaah now I get it :cool:

If you do not have 5 stocks in your portfolio at the close of trade, their is no autobanking on your account. You bank $0.00 for that day but retain your cash on hand.

Rules state
You need a minimum of five celebrities in your portfolio at the close of trading to bank profits

Go to your menu bar at the top of the screen where you see File, Edit, View etc.

Click on View, click on Page Source, Right click on your mouse and the Find Again command will be displayed. Click on Find Again and it opens a search window.


Flutterby - 25-9-2008 @ 10:46 PM

Thanks Tarzwal. I found the 'find' and 'find again' in the edit drop down menu.

Can't wait to try :)


Dice - 26-9-2008 @ 12:37 AM

OK... on the days that I try to catch as many updates that I can, I go down in the rankings......

The day I couldnt give a stuff, I go up in the rankings? Go Figure......

Maybe just everyone else was doing the same I was lol


rainman1 - 26-9-2008 @ 01:47 AM

If they ran this game again in 12 months time Would anyone play it. Ok you would be much better at it.....but its 6 months of tortue....as we are all addicted to it.....:mad:

I agree RB - I gave up last week! I enjoy getting outside and also spending time with my family to be be stuck to this stupid game lol... It really goes on way to long and is too involved. Good luck to our lottoers continuing on with it though - I hope it pays off for you with a weekly or the major.:)



Tye:)


hammy101 - 26-9-2008 @ 07:00 AM

I think to win this one you would need to be:

a. not working
b. not bore easily
c. not have a social life

:P:P:P

rainman1 the dates don't actually update on the site until about 8am each day (not quite sure what the time is). Just noticed it one day.

If you login at 6.00am and logout maybe half and hour later, you will see that the site still carries the date of the previous date.
eg: login 6.00 28/09 but logout before say 6.30am 28/09
Look at your portfolio and it will show that you last logged in 27/09 (even though its the 28/09)

So the site date is not updated in real time

Any registrations on the 18th made before the date stamp updates probably carry the previous date.

Flutterby - 28-9-2008 @ 10:34 PM

People post 'update' when the share prices have moved - just as a heads up to anyone else playing that didn't see the prices change.
It is random timing. Very frustrating some days.


ladyluc - 28-9-2008 @ 10:46 PM

thanks debrastasia35 know I know, Im all to new at this lotto talking and understanding the talk you guys have but I must ask more Q that would help me more take care ;) fixated is frustrating

No worries Ladyluc, I only joined 5 days before you :)
It takes a bit of getting used to, it took me a while to realise that WPC meant Winning Phone Call.

Someone should post a thread of common abbreviations used on the forum, but there probably already is one, I'm just too busy with the little monkeys and trying to enter as many comps as possible. Will have a look see to see if such a thread exists :)

zen - 1-10-2008 @ 06:26 AM

updating now - get ready to sell big :P


catbat - 1-10-2008 @ 08:36 AM

First time I've actually had enough to worry about, is it best to sell when your shares go up & are high, then buy more cheap ones? or is it best to hold onto them so you have high shares when they are banked! But then they leave you with very little.. I have no idea what I'm doing in that regard!


zen - 1-10-2008 @ 08:56 AM

catbat, sell your shares every time they go up. The more often you trade the more chances you have to win a weekly prize. If you don't sell you take the risk of the shares dropping again anyway. You'll find if you buy shares of an evening they will go up (or down) during the night and you will get the money banked overnight. The shares I bought for under $1.00 this morning went up to over $40.00 this afternoon, I sold them and bought more shares under $1.00.

Hopefully tonight these shares will go up and all my lovely money (I wish it was mine :P) will be banked.

Hope this helps. Just have fun with the game with the aim of winning a weekly prize and don't stress too much about it.


catbat - 1-10-2008 @ 09:04 AM

Thanks zen, I finally bought some that went well today, so I will sell them & buy more. I'm only hoping for weekly prize as I have been going poorly til this week! Just wasn't sure what to do with them now they've actually done something! Thanks again for your advice & good luck!


mozztowin - 2-10-2008 @ 12:04 AM

I am finally starting to work out how this game works.... but what do people do when shares have no value and you have 5000 of them? should i keep them just in case or get rid of them? or is it just pot luck?


pinkyeeyore - 2-10-2008 @ 12:29 AM

Thank you for this. I think. Not sure what I am doing as yet. Sure I will pick it up as I go along.

I've about 6 that have dropped below the 500 place and have no value :( - thought i'd try holding on to them for a little bit but might have to sell for $0 so that i can buy more lol

Finally an update


rainman1 - 4-10-2008 @ 02:06 AM

No updates so far since b4 six this morning.....and only one yesterday...you would think if the point of this game is to use the xrank search more they would give us more updates.........:)


Hellbiddy - 4-10-2008 @ 04:35 AM

I think the lack of updates is turning Fixated into a fizzer:D


rainman1 - 4-10-2008 @ 07:13 PM

ok..tried to sell ...but no go its telling me its not 6am yet....its hasnt changed to ds time....their gone on hols for the weekend.......gee i love this game:cool:


zen - 4-10-2008 @ 08:26 PM

Someone needs to FIX Fixated.:mad: It certainly is a fizzer. No one has had money banked overnight - the top ranked celebrities are the same as yesterday morning and everyone's portfolio is the same as yesterday.

I think we broke it :(


mozztowin - 5-10-2008 @ 12:55 AM

If it is broken..... maybe we can get our lives back. I am finding myself checking for updates all day...driving me mad.


rainman1 - 5-10-2008 @ 01:09 AM

Mabe they decieded not to have people work this thing on the weekend to avoid paying overtime or we may be checking the xrank search more when they update less.


Cass - 5-10-2008 @ 01:13 AM

well glad its not just me that got ziltch last night

Did Craig Fitzgibbon shares change today or ?? I thought I only bought them today & had to sell some others that only had 5 shares left, so I could buy more, but now showing that I only have 5 of his shares left, but sure I had a lot more than that as I would have sold them if only 5


bluepurplemoon - 8-10-2008 @ 07:08 AM

I think they went up overnight so they auto-took them off you and bank the profits!

after every update there will be 10 celebs ranging from 10cents to $1 in 10cent increments, buy those 10, they seem to be quite rigid with it now, its just a matter of catching the updates.

You have gotta go thro the list & try to buy as low as you canin the mornings,then you sell when thayare HIGH even if thay may fall out of the top 500 asin a few days thay will come back into the top 500 again.
I have 4 celebritys out of the top 500 including 'Meatloaf, Geri Honeywell( from the spice girls) but ill hang on to them as thay will go up again

You need to logout and then refresh on your account, without being logged in, to see the changes the quickest.

That said, some days there are hardly ever any changes during the day but other days there are a few.

ok ty tarzwal, will keep doing that


zen - 12-10-2008 @ 06:22 AM

updated ;)

The best way to know when there is an update is to have the xRank up.

http://search.live.com/xrank/results.aspx?

Search for one of the celebrities in your portfolio and refresh every now and then - when your celebrity moves there has been an update. If you find that the celebrity has moved and your portfolio is the same it means there will be an update shortly so check the people in your portfolio and if they have dropped out of the top 500 on the xRank sell them quickly ;)


robbntanya - 12-10-2008 @ 06:28 AM

so basically buy low sell high?
is that how it works.. am so new to this kinda confusing lol


zen - 12-10-2008 @ 06:37 AM

Buy as low as you can and sell whenever they go up. You may not sell them for the top price but really we're playing for the weekly prizes so the more often you buy and sell the more chance you have of winning something.

do you have the 10K they start you with??
and i havent found a quick link i just go to the drop down.. if there is a quick link would be great to know it

munchkin - 12-10-2008 @ 01:00 PM

Yeah, there is a quick way to find it, a member posted earlier on.
Beside the dropdown box where the celebs are listed, right click, then ckick on view source. Then click on edit in the menu of the new window, click find and then input the amount you want. like $0.10


ice-lady - 12-10-2008 @ 01:01 PM

yes I got my 10k when I named my portfolio.... not that I've got much idea what I'm doing.....I guess I will do it like the ponies, go for the best looking and long legs....:D

the only quick link...well what could be a quick link is to go for the top snoozers as wouldn't they show up as this when they are first put on as they have no history??


Lee05 - 12-10-2008 @ 01:03 PM

ice-lady, go for the cheap ones, not who you like so you can make the most money. You never really lose. They may go out of the 500 but seem to come back again. :)

What i dont get is why is it that the night before i had 5000 shares for someone then everything updates and in the morning i have only 5?
that happened for 2 of my celebrities.. and happened to another one that went from 5000 to 4154?

robbntanya: From the FAQ onthe site:

At the close of 'Trading' each day (2am AEST) our clever 'Auto Banking System' will search all portfolios that are valued over $10,000 FIXATED dollars. The value of the portfolio is based on the FIXATED cash left in the 'Investment Budget' and the value of your celeb shares at 2am AEST.

All Portfolios with a worth over $10,000 FIXATED dollars will have any profits above the original $10,000 FIXATED dollars banked automatically - using our clever 'Auto Banking System'.

The criteria our clever ‘Auto Banking System’ will use is as follows:

Step 1: Your ‘Investment Budget’ – We will check how much cash you have left in your cash balance and bank that first.

If you have no spare cash because all your money is tied up in celeb shares, OR you still have a profit over $10,000 tied up in celeb shares, we will move to 'step 2'.

Step 2: Release equity tied up in your celeb shares. We will ‘Auto Sell’ shares in your highest worth celebrity (This is the celebrity with the highest worth in dollars). We will sell as many shares as necessary until you are left with your investment float of $10,000 *

Important note: We will always leave you with 5 shares in any one celebrity. Therefore, if we still need to bank more profit – the ‘Auto Sell’ facility will move onto your next highest value celebrity – and so on, until you are left with an ‘Investment Budget’ of $10,000 (or slightly under*) from 2.01am AEST onwards.

The buying delays don't appear as bad if you use Google Chrome. Might be worth a download.


crazeecook45 - 14-10-2008 @ 01:03 PM

I think you have to keep logging off/logging in to get access.
There have been a huge amount of updates today, the most I've ever seen but couldn't cash on them on all due to having many, many visitors,

However have made 10 million the most I've ever made but I'm sure there was more than twice that to be made if you spent the whole day at it

yep posted that while ago because for the most part if you are logged in and not actually buying, a refresh within your account will not display the updates. Log off as soon as you/ve bought you celebs but refresh on your account to ensure that you get the next update quickly

have you read about autobanking at 2am - has been posted a number of times

The ‘Auto Banking System’ will ‘Bank’ any monies over $10,000 from your portfolio at 2AM AEST every night. The ‘banked’ monies are know as ‘Banked Profit’.

In short: The monies banked will leave you with an Investment Budget of $10,000 (or slightly under*) for the start of the next ‘Trading Day’ (6AM - AEST).

The Criteria our clever ‘Auto Banking System’ will use is as follows:

Step 1: Your ‘Investment Budget’ - We will check how much ‘FIXATED cash’ you have not tied up in ‘Celebrity Stocks’ and bank that first.

If you have no ‘FIXATED cash’ as all of your money is tied up in ‘Celebrity Stocks’ – or – you still have a ‘profit’ over $10,000 tied up in ‘Celebrity Stock’ – we will move to ‘Step 2’.

Step 2: Release equity tied up in your ‘Celebrity Stock’ - We will ‘Auto Sell’ shares in your highest worth celebrity (This is the celebrity with the highest worth in dollars). We will sell as many shares as it takes until you are left with your investment float of $10,000 *


Important note: We will always keep 5 shares in a celebrity – Therefore, if we still need to bank more profit – the ‘Auto Sell’ facility will move onto your next highest value Celebrity – and so on, until your are left with an ‘Investment Budget’ of $10,000 (or slightly under*) for the start of the next Trading Day.

* Slightly Under – The ‘Auto Banking System’ will always want to bank as much profit for you as it can - so when selling ‘Stock’ it may have to round down the number of shares sold to maintain your Portfolio Investment budget at $10,000 or under.

At the ‘close of trading’ (2AM AEST) any FIXATED dollars you've made over $10,000 will be ‘banked’ automatically, using our clever Auto Banking System'


When the shares are autobanked you will be left with $10,000 - this means that they may take shares from you but you will be left with 5 shares in each celebrity.

I've had trouble buying this morning but if I go into one of the other portfoliod I can buy that way.

The previous top two have deliberately not banked their money from yesterday - makes it interesting as they were playing all day yesterday and would have made heaps more than my $11 million. :o


robbntanya - 14-10-2008 @ 10:09 PM

how do you not bank from yesterday?
im so confused LOL my cash balance says 0
I thought they auto bank anything above the 10K


munchkin - 14-10-2008 @ 10:13 PM

If you have less then 5 celebs then it does not autobank.


Dice - 14-10-2008 @ 11:19 PM

OK... looks we are finally giving up on this game.... Dropped like 7 spots last night.. yeah I might have missed a lot of the updates but now I dont really care... I said to myself once I drop out of the top 20, thats it for me... Im not going waste my time for 6 months playing something that I am more likely to get nothing out of it.... there are so many other comps to enter and put my time into and actually win something.

Also looks like ninemsn screwed up this morning? some of the top people didnt bank anything? and the new leader banked over $25 mil? there wasnt that many updates was there?
Correct me if I am wrong

For those that keep at it... Good luck as I really hope someone from lottos does win overall and wins the the big 1 Million :D

robbntanya, you should start off each morning with $0 cash - because they've banked your money. You should also have almost $10,000 worth of shares which you can sell and then have cash to buy more shares ;)

Dice, there were so many updates yesterday that I gave up keeping up with them all and I made $11 million. The two top guys yesterday were playing all the time and would have made heaps. I'd say they kept less than 5 celebs overnight so their money wasn't banked.

Days like yesterday are a bit too much for me - I don't want to be tied to the computer all day - there's other things in life to do :P

I believe there would have been that many updates and if you caught them all you could have made that much. I missed heaps of updates and still made $11 million.


kats - 15-10-2008 @ 01:01 AM

updated again, just a note that when i logged out just before it actually took me to the page of the number one person

it was if i was her and i could have sold and brought for her (not that i did) i just logged out again but its something to be aware of

not sure how it happened


zen - 15-10-2008 @ 01:10 AM

Just missed that update :mad:

The word is that there was a quick update just before closing at 2am and some people didn't have time to buy 5 celebs and missed out on getting their money banked ;)


zen - 15-10-2008 @ 01:14 AM

There was an update last night just before closing and if you sold you wouldn't have had time to buy 5 celebs so you could bank.
I banked over 25mil yesterday as did others as there were updates on top of updates


Cass - 15-10-2008 @ 01:39 AM

wow i thought i did well to manage 5 mill
I missed so many updates because i couldn't buy it was so frustrating
Big congrtas though to those that managed


ice-lady - 15-10-2008 @ 02:03 AM

well I cant buy so heres hoping another update............


Dice - 15-10-2008 @ 04:41 AM

Ahh I see, one of those days of constant updates.... I must have got around to checking maybe 6 times or so but only ever saw the shares stay down... wrong time clicking I guess..

Well done on banking that much icebox :)

As I said, im out of it now, put my time into my actual real life and other comps...

Good luck for the remaining 4 months or more of FIXated... for those that continue :)

Dice, if you have less than 5 stocks in your portfolio at the time of autobanking, your cash remains on hand rather than being banked.

The amount banked for these players will play catch up the next time that autobanking occurs on their account.

eg: say they made 25M last night but the account was not autobanked because they had less than 5 stocks on hand, tomorrow if their account is autobanked it will include the $25M plus what they earnt today


Dice - just remember when you buy stocks you go into the weekly draw, so even if you are not playing for top position, just do a few buys every week to give you a chance to win a weekly prize. Good Luck! (wish I had some:( )


RICA76 - 15-10-2008 @ 09:32 AM

Has there been an update since lunch? Mine hasn't updated my stock since then just thought it would normally have updated by now?


Cass - 15-10-2008 @ 09:51 AM

I have FINALLY caught an update today!!


mykidsrock - 15-10-2008 @ 09:56 AM

just a ? i have 1.3 million on my shares at moment should i sell now and buy more before i go to bed


only new at this;)


bluepurplemoon - 15-10-2008 @ 10:09 AM

MKR i'd sell and rebuy the lower ones now before bed - but that's me, i'm a risk taker.


mykidsrock - 15-10-2008 @ 10:12 AM

ok thanks bpm might do the same lol;););)


Cass - 15-10-2008 @ 10:16 AM

yes sell when they go even remotely higher lol


bluepurplemoon - 15-10-2008 @ 10:16 AM

If you look at the other top 20 portfolios they appear to have sold and bought also - look again around the c's & d's. :)


munchkin - 15-10-2008 @ 10:25 AM

I think any profit is good, and the moment a celeb goes above $1.00 I sell and buy any $1.00 or less.

I'm just having fun and hopefully a chance at a weekly prize. No hope of getting near the top.:):):)

zen - 16-10-2008 @ 06:45 AM

There was an update between 5.00 and 5.15. You'll see that the top two players didn't get it and now have some shares below 500.


Ekajata - 16-10-2008 @ 06:47 AM

bit beyond me - i don't look at what other players have/doing.

just go by my shares and their prices, so when I see update I look to see if my shares have moved.

thanks.

actually in the process of another update as the view source has judi dench as 0.10 but the drop down has her over a dollar. thats literally 2 updates in less then 5 mins (as when i first hopped on it was still lisa wilkins)

rather odd


zen - 23-10-2008 @ 04:45 AM

updating ;)


catbat - 23-10-2008 @ 05:31 AM

For the first time I'm having the problem a lot of you have had..keeps logging me out everytime I do anything. & nothing has changed on my computer so no idea why!


dawn1004 - 23-10-2008 @ 05:38 AM

They've changed something, now when I click on buy, I used to get an a-z drop down list of celebs.

Now I get a table with top 100, mid range, 400-500 and then alpha.

I'm only interested in the 400-500 range to get the cheapies, but nothing coming up, the alpha list doesn't work either, only currently the top 100 works - and wants to buy celebs at $50 a share!

Will try again later.


zen - 23-10-2008 @ 05:48 AM

It's just updated Dawn so it may have been the update causing the problem.


ice-lady - 23-10-2008 @ 05:50 AM

same for me want to buy cheap but only offering celeb's starting at $40.00 per share......I liked my 20cent bargains..where have they gone...:(


bauhinia - 23-10-2008 @ 05:52 AM

Wow new look buying so much easier!


zen - 23-10-2008 @ 05:54 AM

I agree bauhinia - much better!


Cass - 23-10-2008 @ 05:54 AM

everytime i click on buy a celeb it logs me out


catbat - 23-10-2008 @ 05:54 AM

Ok some of it is working now, Have a new thing instead of the drop down menu when buying a celeb, has them listed in sections with tabs to select. ie top 100, 101-200 etc up to 401-500. SO much easier! can just go into the last section 401-500 & pick the bottom ones !! Currently J's :)
Just read back & saw other people have noticed this too! Hope its not just a glitch in the system & stays like it ..soo easy!


catbat - 23-10-2008 @ 06:02 AM

Now if I try & click on top 20 profiles i get logged out & there are no cheap celebs to buy, so think they are having trouble with the updates!


icebox - 23-10-2008 @ 06:11 AM

It was updating again that's why you might have had trouble


mozztowin - 23-10-2008 @ 06:14 AM

has anyone else noticed a new system to find the celebs or have I not found it before?
They are now grouped in hundred groups so you can easily find the ones ranked lowest in the top 500.
Much easier for buying.


mozztowin - 23-10-2008 @ 06:15 AM

sorry just had the last posts come up when they weren't there before. yes others have noticed...cool!


belindarae - 23-10-2008 @ 06:18 AM

I'm having the same problem. It let me sell my celebs but logs me out when I try to buy.


kats - 23-10-2008 @ 06:19 AM

:mad::mad::mad: i logged on and was in the middle of selling my millon + profit when it updated and i lost the lot, now it won't even let me buy:(

Cass, I was having the exact same problem as you, and went and checked my internet options which were fine. Set to accept all cookies. Then went for a hunt around in my firewall settings. I am using Trend Micro and found a place where it deals with cookies.
I found the fixated site url in a long long list in Trend Micro and transferred it into a trusted zone.
Anyway I can now buy celebs, so might be worth searching through your firewall settings for the specific cookie settings.

magwheels - 23-10-2008 @ 08:51 AM

Can't buy here either


dawn1004 - 23-10-2008 @ 09:07 AM

nup can't buy either, just bought one from the snoozers list at 80c and that's it.

Has to be a problem their end for so many of us to have the same problem.

I've sent them an email and will see if they respond.

I see that most of the top portfolios have been able to buy the 10c - 1.00 celebs.


fifi97 - 23-10-2008 @ 09:27 AM

Hi,
I have also been experencing the same. I shut down internet explorer and went through mozilla firefox and was able to buy.


crazeecook45 - 23-10-2008 @ 09:45 AM

I don't think it's a firewall prob (but I know little about computers) as it will let me in to sell but not to buy:(


kats - 23-10-2008 @ 09:47 AM

i've emailed them about the problem with not being able to buy, so i will let you all know if i hear anything


Ekajata - 23-10-2008 @ 09:56 AM

I bought no probs about an hour and half ago ..... and I am not in the top portfolios :P

I think they have 'windows' of buying opportunities. that is what I have found anyway. if I can't buy i log out, do something else, come back and can buy........bit odd...but don't think it is a problem.


mykidsrock - 23-10-2008 @ 10:24 AM

The site is now functioning correctly,

Please let us know if you have any further problems.

Kind Regards

Still cant buy


crazeecook45 - 23-10-2008 @ 10:29 AM

YEAH! Iam sharing this with you (although I would love to win) because I love this club which has great Karma.

I've finally got in by clicking on 20 top portfolios,(under Leagues Banner) choosing A top twenty portfolio that may have been able to buy, then clicking on whatever celeb, they have that I want to buy and then click buy and load:)

Please let me know if you can get in the same way


dawn1004 - 23-10-2008 @ 01:12 PM

crazeecook,

I'm with you, did what you suggested and was able to buy my 10c to 1.00 people.

Thanks for the suggestion.


belindarae - 23-10-2008 @ 09:51 PM

Ekajata there was an update this morning at 8.15am if you hadn't sold your profit from last nights auto banking and bought the new celebs you wouldn't have seen it mind you it wasn't a biggie;)


Ekajata - 7-11-2008 @ 12:11 AM

And yet within moments another price change just now


Ekajata - 12-11-2008 @ 12:24 AM

wow this is now starting to baffle me.

HOW did the leader bank 10 million last night.

I had all low shares, caught the updates all day and banked now-where near that.

If someone could explain I would be grateful and stop scratching my head :P


Hellbiddy - 12-11-2008 @ 01:02 AM

Hi Ekajata the leader banked just over 8 million yesterday because in the first hour and a half of trading there were five updates, the auto bank update from overnight kept going up and down and there three that were worth over 2 million dollars it was all a bit of a frenzy and just had to be lucky enough to be logged in at that time and the brain to work out what was happening at that hour of the morning:D


Ekajata - 12-11-2008 @ 01:32 AM

thanks Hellbiddy - geez you just gotta be onto it.

Rising quite smoothly up the rankings until yesterday/this morning - only went up 1 spot :(

maybe people are sleeping with their puters:P


Hellbiddy - 12-11-2008 @ 03:17 AM

Hang in there Ekajata you'll keep climbing up, I've noticed two of the top 20 have recently pulled out with it running for so long it does tend to send you potty:P especially when the updates are far and few between. I think the leader will definately deserve his win after being fixated for six months:D


sweetasbeau - 12-11-2008 @ 12:06 PM

not as yet...


shazmj - 16-11-2008 @ 03:18 AM

The leader had less than $10,000 worth and he banked last night. Now it's over $27,000. Must have been some update within the last hour.


mudcrab - 16-11-2008 @ 03:24 AM

yes, there was an update. it was soooo quick though, just near the end of selling my shares at a high price, it the two I had left dropped from 48.00 to 1.00

Some very sneaky updates lately once the first daily update happens its been going back and forth to that update 3 or 4 times 2 million plus dollars each time but they don't change the xrank:D Very easy to miss as well.

crazeecook45 - 24-11-2008 @ 01:01 AM

I think"SMART BANKER" slept in last night. No one seemed to have had shares reduced from 5000 to 5.

There are 2 people listed as number 26 on the leader board:o


catbat - 24-11-2008 @ 01:09 AM

Yes I'm having the same trouble zen! I'm keeping them all for a bit, but worried i may miss out all together, wondering if we are meant to get rid of them all & start again, very tricky thing to do to us!!


zen - 24-11-2008 @ 01:14 AM

crazeecook45, how do you see the Portfolios below the top 20?


crazeecook45 - 24-11-2008 @ 01:26 AM

Zen. I check the League of Leagues.

One number26 is in the TET league and another in The Fix league. I probably only noticed because I'm 27.


zen - 24-11-2008 @ 04:02 AM

Thanks crazeecook, I checked a couple of leagues but didn't look at those. I thought perhaps there may have been another way.

Edit: weird - Chicken Legs (Fred Bloggs) is no 26 and doesn't have any money banked :o:o

That whole TET league is weird! Maybe it's a test league for FIXated.


Hellbiddy - 24-11-2008 @ 04:11 AM

Gawd wheres the updates not sure which is worse none and having a portfolio of 0 dollars or too many updates to keep up with wish they'd get it right:D


zen - 24-11-2008 @ 04:19 AM

Hellbiddy, damn frustrating I agree. Too many updates and I'm complaining but none is even worse :P


crazeecook45 - 24-11-2008 @ 04:52 AM

Zen. I agree tet site is strange as yesterday Chicken Legs had about 290 million. Must have been to the CASINO :D:D:D


catbat - 24-11-2008 @ 05:23 AM

Most of the TET group now have zero on both columns & Chicken legs is now ranked 2680 on his page but on the league of leagues he still shows as 26! How can he be ranked as anything when it says he has 0 banked total??!!


catbat - 24-11-2008 @ 05:24 AM

Also just noticed most of them haven't logged on since August!
Can anyone tell me how you can have a negative monthly banked balance? & on the league of leagues page what does the portfolio count number relate too!
Thanks


crazeecook45 - 24-11-2008 @ 09:36 AM

Catbat. We think that it's some sort of test site as number 2 on that list isn't on the official list


crazeecook45 - 24-11-2008 @ 11:26 AM

I hate this time consuming game. Can someone tell me why I'm playing it?

Don't worry about being polite:)


mudcrab - 24-11-2008 @ 01:04 PM

finally....an update!

I actually enjoy this, not as much as secret search, friend magnet and prizerush (bring em back, please!) but this is a bit of fun


catbat - 24-11-2008 @ 01:25 PM

Thanks crazeecook! Think your name may have something to do with why you are playing it!! :D :D Thats your excuse..NOT sure what mine is!!
Finally they updated our $0 shares,glad I hung on to them!


crazeecook45 - 24-11-2008 @ 01:50 PM

LOL. Catbat.
I think I only hate it when nothing happens. I think it should be renamed Frustrated


mudcrab - 24-11-2008 @ 09:59 PM

has there been un update since last night?
Updates are few and far between the last few days!
Agree with catbat and crazzeecook, that is what makes this game frustratingly boring.............(but still here, lol)

It's just painfully SLOOOOOOOOOOWWW at the moment.


tarzwal - 25-11-2008 @ 05:01 AM

Thanks for replying zen:)


buffy13 - 25-11-2008 @ 11:14 AM

had a change about 20 mins ago in mine.


mudcrab - 25-11-2008 @ 11:17 AM

yep, change a short time ago.
I think if they want people to stay interested in this, they need to update a little more often, too few are far between at this stage

edit, I am only playing for the chance of a weekly prize:):):):):)

Sorry Mudcrab. Messed up. My message is below


crazeecook45 - 25-11-2008 @ 11:47 AM

I wish you luck mudcrab. My son won a weekly prize. It was A $10 sanity voucher!!!!!!!!! It came registered mail. I think if it had been $50 it would have come in an armoured van:):):)

At least you know why you're still playing. I'm not sure why I am. I must have an addictive personality.:D:D

i think its been going crazy today.. a few sneaky updates....when i wasnt looking.....:cool:


nicolejane - 26-11-2008 @ 02:45 AM

Well that just sucks!!!

Had shares with the green up arrow earlier - just checked they're all +500 now so I have 0 value and nothing in my cash balance either

Wish there was a withdraw feature for when this happens :(


zen - 26-11-2008 @ 03:07 AM

updating again - quite a few updates today!

You're right rainman - some have been very sneaky and I've missed them.


catbat - 26-11-2008 @ 03:08 AM

Looking at that tet group again that isnt playing,you'd think they'd be at the bottom..if thats the case theres only about 3,300 people playing this, Not many when you think about it!
I'm only in it for weekly prize too, no hope of getting anywhere near the top! Would really be better off doing another comp but I must be addicted too!


zen - 26-11-2008 @ 03:10 AM

catbat, I live in hope of a weekly prize as I think the odds are pretty good but I wouldn't really appreciate a $10 voucher :P


crazeecook45 - 26-11-2008 @ 03:33 AM

I have seen some of the"sneaky updates" but if you click on "sell" they are back to the original price. This has happened twice--------I think they're playing with our addicted heads


Hellbiddy - 26-11-2008 @ 04:32 AM

Eight updates today so far there will be another one soon I'd say as the current bottom ten are still from this morning.

The top players would have made around 6 or 7 million I can't keep up with it so just been buying the main 3 or 4 that keep changing with highest returns and keeping the other originals from this morning:)

Phew:D

tarzwal - 30-11-2008 @ 09:58 PM

There were loads of updates happening very quickly over a few hours. Other players banked around the same amount as well. If you didn't refresh continually you would have missed the updates.

retxnij - 8-12-2008 @ 05:33 AM

Is anyone else having a problem like me with this game?? I purchase 5000 shares (have also tried with other amounts) one day, then come back the next day and my profile says I only have 5 shares in that celebrity!! It does this for some, many or all of my list of 10 celebs!

Sometimes I lose money even if their share price goes up, as I paid for 5000 shares, and now only have 5 shares in that celeb. :(

It's very frustrating .... ARGHHHHH!! Have emailed the website, but not yet heard back.


crazeecook45 - 8-12-2008 @ 09:16 AM

retxnij This happens to all players. Autobank banks all your cash between 2 & 6am leaving you with $10,000 to start the day. If you don't want that to happen you only hold shares in 4 celebs overnight as autobank only banks if you are holding 5 or more celebs. However if you do that no money accumulated during the day will be banked.:)
If you read QUICK GUIDE TO GAME PLAY on the Fixated home page it will explain all:)
Of course if they rise in value overnight you will have more than$10,000 to start the day but you will have only 5 shares in about 5 celebs


buffy13 - 8-12-2008 @ 11:31 AM

updated


retxnij - 8-12-2008 @ 02:46 PM

crazeecook45 , no I still don't get it. Surely if you purchase 5000 shares of a particular celebrity, you should retain those 5000 shares until you decide to sell them. If their value went up, you'd make money, if their value went down, you'd lose money.

However, what is happening to me is that I purchase 5000 shares, then the next day, that 5000 has disappeared and I only have 5 shares (not having sold any).

Also, I am finding that my balance starts every day at $0, not $10,000 as it should be according to the rules.

Help!?!? :mad:


catbat - 8-12-2008 @ 03:09 PM

retxnij that happens to all of us every night! As crazecook said they take your shares & cash & bank it overnight & just leave you with $10,000 in shares & $0 cash unless you have less than 5 people/shares. I found it annoying at the start as well, but eventually you get used to it & work out a way to get the money back during the day meaning you can bank a lot more each night. Good Luck!


crazeecook45 - 8-12-2008 @ 11:31 PM

Yes retsxnij. We all start with 0 balance BUT $10,000 in shares. If they bank them when they are still at ' buy' value then thats what is banked but if they have risen then you get that amount banked.
If they are worth 0 in the morning then you've eithermissed the update or it hasn't happened yet.
So you will have about 5 shares in 5 celebs worth anything from 0 to buy price or updated price. (it could be 6 )dependant on what they sell to leave you with $10'000 in shares AT THE TIME THAT THEY BANKED, not when you look at them.
If they are worth less than $10,000 you probaly missed some updates. If they are at the same price you paid for them then you need to decide whether you think they'll go up in price and sell them when they do OR sell them for what you paid . IF they are worth zero you have no choice to wait and sell them when they go up or you will have no cash balance to play and buy that day.
IT HAPPENS TO ALL OF US AND IS PART OF THE RULES:(


retxnij - 9-12-2008 @ 02:08 AM

Oh, I get it now -- thanks everyone :P

I didn't realise they left you with $10000 worth of SHARES at the time of BANKING. I thought you retained all your shares plus $10000 of money to spend and the rest was banked.

Seems kinda dumb to me though, cos it almost doesn't seem worthwhile spending more than $10000 on your celebs if the rest are just going to get sold anyway?? I guess there is the chance that their price might have gone up since you bought them .... if you didn't buy too late at night!


crazeecook45 - 9-12-2008 @ 08:34 AM

I've been out for most of the day and it doesn't look like there has been any updates. Does anybody know?


susanmundy - 9-12-2008 @ 08:40 AM

Same here...purchased this morning before work at 8am and just checked now after getting home (busy, busy, busy day today!) and no movement at all it seems! :(


zen - 9-12-2008 @ 08:53 AM

I haven't noticed any movement since about 8 am when there was a quick update from what we started with at 6 am.

I've just realised the entries into the weekly draw are from how many times you have a transaction (successful or not) - so I could buy and sell all day to get entries, and not worry about the updates. Doh :o

Oh thanks, I never realized that either.


redwins - 12-12-2008 @ 02:03 AM

Thats what I have been doing. I am going terrible in this game cause I can't be bothered keeping up with it but each day I do a few transactions and if I have the time I sell in lots instead of all together, that kind of thing. Mind you no weekly prize yet :P

I think FIXATED needs a LAXATIVE to get it moving this weekend:D

zen - 17-12-2008 @ 12:19 AM

Ekajata, the leader hasn't banked for a couple of days. I think he must set his alarm for just before 2am and check out what's happening as he is on at 6am everyday as well :o:o:o

Zen, if leader has not banked then why would it show an amount? I have not banked for a day or so and mine shows 0......... if this were the case then surely mine would show my last amount banked? Correct me if I am mis-guided but I think this game does it to me>;)


Flutterby - 17-12-2008 @ 01:22 AM

The leader is a member of lottos (or their husband, can't remember which) it has been my understanding that they have caught EVERY update and don't always go for the cheapest as sometime there is an update that doesn't change the lowest and highest but everything in between so most wouldn't have even noticed an update.
I'm sure that if you have any queries that you can contact the promoter and enquire able your particular issue :)


Ekajata - 17-12-2008 @ 01:28 AM

yep definately aware of updates and the volume of shares available .... must be a very clever person?! to grab those shares and updates.


crazeecook45 - 17-12-2008 @ 04:28 AM

I believe leader did 3 (or more) days banking last night.


Ekajata - 17-12-2008 @ 05:17 AM

sorry but I don't understand - I thought if you had profit it was autobanked each night - unless they did not trade for a couple of days?

Can you 'save' your bankings and do (3) on a day?


icebox - 17-12-2008 @ 05:22 AM

If you have less than 5 celebs it doesn't bank. So before 2am sold all but 4 and rebought in the morning.


zen - 17-12-2008 @ 05:55 AM

The leader hadn't banked the last few days. I believe at 2am depending on what's happening he has less than 5 shares. This morning at 6am he had 10 celebrities and the top few only had 5 shares which meant he had money autobanked last night (for a couple of days worth).

Shortly after 6am he sold his 5 shares in the top few celebrities and increased his shares in Sandra Bullock. This is exactly what I did yesterday morning and my shares are still the same :(


crazeecook45 - 17-12-2008 @ 11:51 AM

Hi! Just thought I'd pop back in and see who is still sitting here waiting, waiting, waiting. Would you like a coffee.:)

Ekajata, the leader did not bank for a couple of days (before the start of these endless days of no updating)

If you do not bank, the last amount banked will show 0.00
whilst those that bank will show an amount

If you had looked at the banked amount over a few days rather than just one day in isolation, you will find the banked amount for the leader would have been approximately the same as you had over the days that you banked and they did not.

You cannot look at one day in isolation and start pointing the finger by suggesting things like "insider trading", which is distasteful if not libellous.

It was the same for player Sharkys Shares who didn't bank for a day and then banked.

Band of Goodies is currently a player that has not banked for a few days and so when they get up for the day, they simply buy a full set of shares.

You are certainly going to have a shock when player "wynot" banks, as this player has not banked for about a month and by doing so has now dropped out of the Top 20 Guessing that this player, at this point in the game, would be in 4th or 5th position

Your money will not be banked if you keep 4 or less shares in your portfolio and the time of autobanking which is 2am

You risk missing out on earnings (if there is an update in the 2am to 6am timeslot) or you can benefit by being able to buy a full list of 10 shares (if there is no update in the 2am to 6am timeslot). There is risk involved in either choice that you make

Have you actually read the rules ?


crazeecook45 - 18-12-2008 @ 02:38 AM

HMMMM! Well, it's gone quiet in here. I guess someone should say something.
How's your day been everybody?


catbat - 18-12-2008 @ 03:36 AM

Ha ha I'll have that coffee crazeeC! not much else to do on this one anyway!!


mska - 18-12-2008 @ 04:28 AM

Perhaps they're changing this comp to last person who manages not to be bored to death wins. ;)


zen - 18-12-2008 @ 04:30 AM

As we have nothing to do on FIXated :mad: check out the top 20 portfolios for the month.

Click on the league tab and then Fixated Portfolio of the month.

There are a couple of players with huge monthly banked amounts - more than the overall leader. Very interesting as only a few of these players are in the top 20. It could have been a different ball game if they had started playing at the beginning of the game. They could also have not banked each night.

Anyway, good luck to the winner - they deserve it !!!!!


layz - 18-12-2008 @ 04:56 AM

So is it just me or has fixated not changed at all for a couple of days. Wondering if nothings happened or I've just missed changes?


zen - 18-12-2008 @ 04:59 AM

I'm pretty sure absolutely nothing has happened :mad:


Hellbiddy - 18-12-2008 @ 06:19 AM

Yay live search xrank has finally changed so an update is looming:P

Can you 'save' your bankings and do (3) on a day?


Your money will not be banked if you keep 4 or less shares in your portfolio and the time of autobanking which is 2am

You risk missing out on earnings (if there is an update in the 2am to 6am timeslot) or you can benefit by being able to buy a full list of 10 shares (if there is no update in the 2am to 6am timeslot). There is risk involved in either choice that you make

catbat - 21-12-2008 @ 10:44 AM

My internet has been shaped again this month, after 2weeks! Has anyone else noticed their mb's going up a lot & think it could be fixated related? It's only been the last 3 or so months that I have been shaped & this month is the worst :( ( I have 5mb a month)
I have given up on doing a lot of things at the moment as just toooo slow, I forgot how bad it is! It took me 3 hours to buy my 10 shares last night! so I am only doing one sell & buy a day most days as I am ready to throw the computer out the window! SOme programmes just don't open & others take 1 or 2 hours to open a page! AHHHHAHHHHH :mad: :D I get back my 'speed' on tuesday :)
At least I have brad pitt to watch (perv) tonight looking extreeemly good in oceans 12 :D


crazeecook45 - 22-12-2008 @ 05:57 AM

I EMAILED them re slowness of site and I don't know what knob they twiddled but it's fairly flying.:P


groovytwitch - 22-12-2008 @ 06:47 AM

You really have to have 5 to 7 gbs catbat for comps like this.An enormous download.5 mbs is quite small really.


catbat - 22-12-2008 @ 10:12 AM

Thanks groovytwitch. Explains why I'm using so much!
Updating...


crazeecook45 - 23-12-2008 @ 01:08 AM

I was checking the top 20 portfolios OF THE MONTH (not Game) and number 6 appears to be holding shares in 21 celebs!!!!!


It must be some sort of error but quite curious:o:o:o


zen - 23-12-2008 @ 01:33 AM

You are so right, crazeecook - I wonder how that happened :o


zen - 23-12-2008 @ 03:09 AM

updating ;)


crazeecook45 - 23-12-2008 @ 03:32 AM

Click on the top of the LEAGUE Banner (not the roll down menu) and different options come up


Ekajata - 23-12-2008 @ 08:41 AM

numbr 6 showing 12 celebs held for me?!


crazeecook45 - 23-12-2008 @ 09:04 AM

Wow! Yes it's changed to 12.

It was definitely 21 this morning.


EDIT- LATER. After last update it's now 11 celebs being held by NO 6


zen - 23-12-2008 @ 10:12 AM

updated


Ekajata - 23-12-2008 @ 12:18 PM

I emailed support and received a message back stating they had checked and NO.6 had 10 celebs.:o


:D I just checked again and definately 11 celebs. So have copied pasted.
Thing is a lot are 500+ and currenlty worth didly squat - however an update could prove beneficial even with that one extra celeb.

see what comes back from them.


crazeecook45 - 23-12-2008 @ 12:30 PM

Curiouser and curiouser! We know the buy button disappears after 10 celebs.

Probably wouldn't have noticed one or two extra celebs but the 21 being held this morning was a long, long list.:o


Ekajata - 23-12-2008 @ 12:33 PM

exactly crazeecook45 ( have decided to go lightly with comments on this comp from now on ) and maybe just a glitch....and they will sort it out.
(mind you, how fixated saw 10 and we saw 11 one can only hope )


mudcrab - 23-12-2008 @ 12:33 PM

Whooh, thanks, E, I just play the game, do not look at stats. I appreciate your efforts:):):):):):):)


Ekajata - 23-12-2008 @ 12:36 PM

:o now No 6 is back down to 6 celebs so something been done somewhere.

now for an update before bedtime:)


Ekajata - 23-12-2008 @ 01:00 PM

make that 11 celebs again and they are onto it.

yup all of the above. they were stoked, asked me for a screen shot ( which I managed to pull off :P) and have a personal email address for someone :o for the screen shot.
The person/team was obviously able to buy more than 10, so that must be the issue..........but I would like to know how much profit they have made by having so many celebs - who knows what fixated will do about that.

Very intruiging but don't understand about the Email address. Can you U2u me if you'd rather not post it here?


zen - 23-12-2008 @ 07:58 PM

Just came on here and saw all your posts regarding the person with extra celebs.

This morning they have 12 celebs - I emailed FIXated before I read your posts so now I have taken a screenshot.

They have jumped from 6th monthly portfolio to 4th :mad::(


crazeecook45 - 23-12-2008 @ 09:39 PM

Thanks Zen. Would be interested in their reply.


zen - 23-12-2008 @ 10:19 PM

Updated.

I have emailed Fixated again to say I have taken a screen shot but so far have only had automated responses.


Ekajata - 23-12-2008 @ 10:56 PM

WHOA....................... THEY ARE BACK TO 20 ODD CELEBS. SCREEN SHOT TIME AGAIN.


Ekajata - 23-12-2008 @ 11:10 PM

I would do it but don't understand "screen shots" so if any one that does understand the jargon and can comply with what they want, please do.


zen - 23-12-2008 @ 11:43 PM

I can't see that position 7 in the monthly leaders has more than 10.

I have emailed fixated again about the person with 21 celebs and taken another screen shot.

Crazeecook, to take a screen shot - hit your print screen button when you have the screen up showing the portfolio and copy into a word document and save it ;)

Ekajata - 23-12-2008 @ 11:49 PM

just checked pos 7 & 4 both have 13


Hellbiddy - 23-12-2008 @ 11:52 PM

I can see number 7 has 12 celebs, just seems all mucked up at the moment, I can't use the buy button, can't access the snoozer button on the right hand side of screen since yesterday.

I wonder if anyone will even be there to fix things over the next few days or if the updates are just set on auto.

I pressed print screen button on No7 portfolio but nothing happened. Sorry:(


zen - 23-12-2008 @ 11:58 PM

Nothing actually happens when you press print screen.

After you press print screen open a blank word document and paste into the word document by pressing Ctrl V. You should then have what was showing on the screen in a word document.

See how you go with that.

Yes, I can see now that number 7 has 12 celebs.

Snoozer button works for me


Hellbiddy - 24-12-2008 @ 01:46 AM

All working for me now:)


crazeecook45 - 24-12-2008 @ 03:10 AM

Zen. Thanks for all your helpful advice re print screen but I seem unable to do it.

Probably because I'm a mere novice with computers or I think you need microsoft office to have an empty word document which on Vista is a optional extra that I don't have.
(It is more likely to be "the stupid" option:D)
But I appreciate the advice as I would love to be able to do all the clever stuff:)


zen - 24-12-2008 @ 03:22 AM

That's okay crazeecook. I don't know much about Vista but you probably don't have that option.

I have learnt so much from others at lottos so was trying to impart some of my meagre skills! :P

You should have Paint. You can hit print screen and then paste it to Paint and save it as an image. :):)


icebox - 24-12-2008 @ 04:41 AM

They have 13 now.


catbat - 24-12-2008 @ 06:13 AM

I did it by clicking 'select all' then copy, then went to word pad .. I didn't have a print/save option!


zen - 24-12-2008 @ 06:30 AM

You can also copy to notepad if you have that and print.


Ekajata - 24-12-2008 @ 07:57 AM

not heard a peep back from fixated - will check later. will be on the road for the next couple of hours.


zen - 24-12-2008 @ 09:34 AM

I've actually had a reply from Fixated!

Hi there xxxx,

Thank you for your email,

We are aware of this and we are currently looking into this issue,

Kind Regards,

Support Team


crazeecook45 - 24-12-2008 @ 11:02 AM

Thanks Zen.
At least this gave the game another dimension-------something to stare at with mouth open in between updates:o
I love the 21 share portfolio IT'S SO BIG:D:D


Ekajata - 24-12-2008 @ 01:15 PM

My reply just received.

Hi +++++

Thank you for your email with the screen shot, but our Production Team have also got the evidence that we need now,



I’m sure you will see an update shortly.



Thank again, you’ve been a great help




I also wonder what they will do about team currenlty holding 7th position with 13 celebs! I think they should be banned!

Thanks EK for your work and keeping us updated. I notice both have the same word in their names, probably just a coincidence.

rainman1 - 25-12-2008 @ 02:54 AM

Checking portfolio of the month...No 3 Dogstar has 18 celebs...No 6 Starlover has 13 celebs.......how do they do it...?


crazeecook45 - 25-12-2008 @ 03:50 AM

I wonder if they are the same person????

Have you been following the above rainman----it should stop soon and hopefully they will be disqualified.

Eureka!!!! Thanks MUNCHKIN.
YES was able to print screen to paint and actually find it again after I saved it. Great. I'm sure knowing how to do that will be very useful.:)

You should have Paint. You can hit print screen and then paste it to Paint and save it as an image. :):)


munchkin - 25-12-2008 @ 10:00 AM

Glad it worked for you crazeecook. Very handy, especially with instant wins, where you may need to prove you had an instant win. :)


catbat - 25-12-2008 @ 02:17 PM

Dogstar currently has 20 celebs! I wonder if they are doing something with a 'cheat' programme or if its a glitch with fixated that is letting them buy more. Either way I guess they are chaeting as they are buying more than allwoed & hoing to get away with it! (allegedly :) )

Was a bit confused there for awhile as I thought that you meant the players in the top20 but now I see what you mean.

Very strange indeed ! DOGSTAR and STARLOVER banked last night so they shouldn't have more than $10000 is shares until the next update

Ekajata - 26-12-2008 @ 01:19 AM

after just checking and being peed off nothing has been done I have emailed fixated in uk again - they both should just be taken out of the game as they are in breach of game rules.

interestingly, damned if I can find either of them in a league -


catbat - 26-12-2008 @ 01:27 AM

Very strange all my celebs (bar 1) were left on 5 shares only this a.m. I know they do this, but usually only to a few, so I have a few to sell off that are worth something, today I only have $9,000 worth to sell!

That has happened to me catbat. I assumed there had been a small update after banking that I had missed and I'd lost another $1000 but not really sure

I quite like them still showing as at least we can see what they are doing. As you said they can't be found in leagues and if they disappeared I would wonder if they are still somewhere buying up big where we won't see them until they go into top 20.
But in saying that would be very interested in your reply Email, thanks EK:)

there was an update just before close - only managed to get it due to a late night;)


Hellbiddy - 26-12-2008 @ 04:44 AM

DOGSTAR'S portfolio sure is handy for finding the celeb you want quickly:D:D

I'm sure Fixated will sort it out eventually, personally even if I had a glitch I wouldn't buy that many celebs knowing your only allowed ten:mad:


mska - 26-12-2008 @ 07:27 AM

WEM for a $100 Caltex Star Card.
I'm amazed (and happy, of course!) :):):)
I never expected to win anything from Fixated.
I just thought it would be (time wasting) fun...


Hellbiddy - 26-12-2008 @ 07:34 AM

Congrats on your win mska:)


mska - 26-12-2008 @ 08:27 AM

Thanks, hellbiddy! :)

catbat - 26-12-2008 @ 11:06 AM

Congrats mska! Nice surprise, I will fall off my chair if I win anything! It's become a bit of an obsession with me, Don't expect to win even a weekly prize but can't stop doing it!


Auntie - 26-12-2008 @ 11:47 AM

Congratulations mska!


mska - 26-12-2008 @ 11:53 AM

Thanks, mudcrab, catbat & auntie.
I know what you mean, catbat. I had to read the WEM several times before it sunk in.
I just don't win stuff in comps like this. Anything. Ever.
Perhaps Santa thought I'd been extra-good this year. :P


mudcrab - 26-12-2008 @ 12:03 PM

I hear you catbat.........!!!


crazeecook45 - 26-12-2008 @ 12:06 PM

Well done MSKA:)
I too will spend thousands of hours on Fixated without expecting to win BUT have had heaps of fun.
I started a week after the beginning of the comp and will never catch up and when the very quick updates happen I am too slow on dialup to buy and sell before they change again but like Catbat I can't stop.:)

mska, congratulations.

I wonder what happened to week 17 winners. They now have week 18 showing and a couple of days ago it was week 16 :o

The two offending portfolios still have 19 and 12 celebrities and I have sent a more heated email to Fixated!!


mska - 26-12-2008 @ 08:37 PM

Thanks, zen.
I think I must be a week 17 winner, because I'm not listed in 16 or 18.
Who knows? Fixated seems to work in its own mysterious way...:)

I never expected to win anything from Fixated.
I just thought it would be (time wasting) fun...


Congratulations:)

Thanks, tarzwal!
And thanks, crazeecook! Sorry, I missed you out...very rude of me. :(:(


buffy13 - 26-12-2008 @ 11:05 PM

congrats mska.

can't see dogstar in top 20 now,
but if i were you and you catch people with more then they should i would make a note of their names and complain if they win a weekly prize.
hate to see them score a prize when they are cheating
hopefully there might be second chance draws.

only 2 more months to go, its gone so quick.
going to miss it when it finishes.


Hellbiddy - 26-12-2008 @ 11:36 PM

buffy13 the two offending portfolios are still there in Top 20 Portfolios Of Month currently at 4 and 11, with 15 and 13 celebs each.

As much as the game drives me crackers I will definately miss it when its finished but I guess by then another Goldrush game will be on:D


Ekajata - 27-12-2008 @ 02:38 AM

onya mska - glad somone is getting more than just frustrated out of this.

onya zen - about to check my emails - hopefully a reply as to why these two twits are still in the game.


Hellbiddy - 27-12-2008 @ 04:08 AM

Now has 25 celebs:o I'm not looking anymore:D


JoBeautBoutique - 27-12-2008 @ 04:30 AM

Hi there, Does anybody know the password to the lottos.com.au league so that I can join it?
Thank you


zen - 27-12-2008 @ 04:34 AM

The lottos league password is comps ;)


mska - 27-12-2008 @ 05:25 AM

Thanks, buffy13 & ekajata. :)
I'm sure they'll come up with another time-consumer for us when fixated has finished....;)


Auntie - 27-12-2008 @ 07:33 AM

I received an email from Fixated when I complained about DOGSTAR and was told
'Hi,

Dogstar has been disqualified, the rules remain the same that you are only allowed a max of 10 celebs in your team. Anyone with more than 10 celebs will be disqualified from the game.

Thanks'
But their names are still there and they have logged on today.


crazeecook45 - 27-12-2008 @ 08:01 AM

I personally don't care if they keep playing, if they are disqualified from winning anything that's all that matters.
I'm happy and quite enjoy checking their portfolios:D


They (fixated) may just be saying they are disqualified from winning and not from playing.

But I still think the more emails of protest to fixated the better just so they know WE ARE ON TO IT!!!


PS.PS. DOGSTAR now has 25 Celebs a PERSONAL BEST:D:D:D


Ekajata - 27-12-2008 @ 09:45 AM

I cannot keep up with the updates at the moment. can't buy quick enough. when I do - damn things have gone up. site is really weird at present.


crazeecook45 - 27-12-2008 @ 01:36 PM

Is it possible for a "Buddy system?" I don't think that from reading the T&Cs that it's improper.

I would like to spend 5 days with minimal playtime on Fixated from Jan5 to 10th and would like someone to play for me.
I understand that when the updates happen you would buy and sell for yourself first and then for your "buddy" second.(if there is time on quick update days) and you may miss some updates.

I am not going to win at position 25 but for all the hard work I've put in for some Fixated reason don't want to lose that position if I don't have to.
AND of course I will play for my BUDDY on days they are wanting to be somewhere else.
If anyone is interested please u2u me and of course if you can see anything in the T&Cs forbidding this please voice your protest here. :)


Ekajata - 28-12-2008 @ 01:37 AM

I wonder, crazee, that the isp is logged by fixated therefore not allowing multiple accounts - but I don't know for sure.

Good thought Ekajata. I could try access from the library and see what happens?
Has anyone from Lottos accessed their portfolio from more than one computer I wonder?


Hellbiddy - 28-12-2008 @ 08:53 AM

Said I wasn't going to look at that portfolio anymore but couldn't help myself now has 27:D


Auntie - 28-12-2008 @ 09:06 AM

I wonder how many more people have more than 10 celebs? We would never know unless the player was in the top group. If one has more than 10 celebs it would give a person a much better chance to win a consolation prize I think.

I think we're fairly safe as they would soon move into one of the top groups ie. the monthly (fasting moving) portfolio (which is updated daily) or the top portfolio where they open to scrutiny. So we should keep our eyes peeled on those portfolios:cool:


groovytwitch - 28-12-2008 @ 11:32 AM

I accidently got 11 once, don't know how but I deleted the extra as soon as.Must have a gliche somewhere.

Thanks for your answer, Icebox.:)

tarzwal - 28-12-2008 @ 07:33 PM

crazeecook45 if you are going to have access to a computer and know other people playing maybe you can just have them SMS you when an update happens (works great on slow days and nights when updates are few and far between) so you are not stuck at the computer all the time.

Thanks for your suggestion Tarzwal but it wouldn't work in this case as I will be holidaying with my gorgeous grandies and need to be out and about with them at the beach, fun parks and probably Mackers:D:D
I will have my laptop back at the beach house but we are often out for the entire day.


crazeecook45 - 28-12-2008 @ 10:01 PM

Interesting. DOGSTAR has changed her name from Simone to Atje!!!!!!

crazee still showing Simone here:o

Looks like its a programmed account to me otherwise they would be earning heaps more.

Who knows, maybe its a test account making sure you can't bank on more than 10 accounts. Its all very odd.

Maybe refreshing on it at the next update to see if all the shares update at once instead of one by one could clarify that.

Your right. It's back to Simone again but swear it was Atje earlier, unless I'm suffering post xmas hallucinations.:D

crazee that sounds great! :):):)

Better than sitting at the computer and suffering sleepless nights!

I think you are more likely to win a prize if you are outside the Top 20. I think in all this time there has only been one winner in the Top 20 and that was some voucher not worth much, if memory serves.

Yes. The beach holiday is always great:)
I don't think I'm in Fixated for the prizes anymore. In fact I don't know why I continue playing but am obsessed to continue:o
Friends have suggested I buy ans sell on the real stock market and it would have some real purpose. They're probably right:D


tarzwal - 29-12-2008 @ 03:01 AM

Hope the person who tries for a million actually asks if there IS one in the running.............and if they don't win it.............as least ask to see it!
Maybe they will forget about that too...........

Who knows Ekajata they may have a method in their madness, maybe they can only ban them from winning but not from playing.
I guess they don't have to tell us everthing and take direction from us as long as in the end everything is above board:)
I Agree. It certainly is very strange but they may have a reason for not revealing ALL to us and wiping them from our screens.
Maybe it will ALL have a Happy Ending ( I hope this is so and may the best man/woman win and good luck to Choochooing and all those playing by the rules )but in the mean time, I've had lot's of fun and thank you, Ekajata, for your hard work trying to sort this.:)

thank goodness. last email I received from fixated stated they were shocked to see DOGSTAR still there as they were disqualified LAST WEEK. yeah right ..... 5 days later .......
but good to see gone.
I am a little dismayed to see STARLOVER still there - who cares they now have the right number of shares. they have got to the position they have via the aquasisition of more celebs than others in the game which means someone else could quite easily be in a better position.

If Dogstar has gone then Starlover should go the same way. I'm probably wrong but strongly feel it's the same person with dual portfolios.

catbat - 6-1-2009 @ 12:35 PM

I still check it a few times a day if i'm home, usually only get 1 or 2 updates though. I have no idea why as the only weekly prize I'd probably want is the myer voucher, the odds of winning are poor enough, the odds of winning & it being the myer voucher are beyond poor!! :D

Gawd how boring at the moment with no updates happening, thought they might do some mega update days as the comp draws closer to finishing also thought they might put the price up on some celebs like on some of the graphs when you buy of certain ones goes up to $75 oh well its not like its real money:D


magwheels - 7-1-2009 @ 11:05 PM

Not half as much fun since we can't check DOGLOVERS shares.

AND RAINMAN where are you??? I've noticed you haven't been playing, I hope all's well.

Of course if they start updating so fast I can't keep up I'll whinge then as well.

YES. I'm still here, still playing and still whinging:D:D:D

Well there's some insider information for us all:o:o


Hellbiddy - 19-1-2009 @ 09:08 PM

crazeecook45 I got a similar response a couple of weeks ago saying there's only updates if xrank changes which sometimes is not everyday. Well der!!!! it would change if someone pulled their finger out and pressed the button:D

Has anyone seen an update for the day yet?

Player Claytons and TDX1 have more than $10000 in shares BUT they banked last night.

Flutterby - 25-1-2009 @ 12:33 AM

hmmmmmm :cool:
Me thinks that there are quite a few things fishy about this comp. Am pretty annoyed I haven't won anything yet - have invested alot of time in this one :( and don't have a shot at the big one


tarzwal - 25-1-2009 @ 12:49 AM

It does appear strange but maybe they had shares from last night that they held onto rather than just buying shares from the 0.10 to 1.00 range and these are the ones that have updated, so we have missed the update.

Yes this competition has taken a huge 24/07 effort with not enough sleep. Looking forward to it ending.

I'm finding it amazing that no one in the Top 20 has won a prize (except I think rainman who won a $10 voucher right at the beginning)


Flutterby - 25-1-2009 @ 12:58 AM

yeah, you are prob right.
Well hopefully we all get something out of this before it ends :) Here's hoping.

crazeecook45 - 29-1-2009 @ 10:07 AM

Remember the good old days when the celebs updated so fast you couldn't buy them quick enough?:)

Oh that interesting Hellbiddy - it happened again today and has happened now from what I have seen three times already


tarzwal - 30-1-2009 @ 10:58 AM

The power has been out all over Melbourne can someone tell me how many updates there has been since 6pm please


Flutterby - 30-1-2009 @ 11:00 AM

I think there has only been one but ave been in and out so not entirely sure :)

Well this has happened again this morning which is quite unbelievable. TDX1 banked and has full set of shares.


zen - 30-1-2009 @ 09:50 PM

It seems very suss Tarzwal.

Less than 4 weeks to go - what will I do with all my spare time then :P No need to jump out of bed at 6am to check my shares - maybe I'll go walking instead!


mska - 31-1-2009 @ 12:28 AM

tarzwal - 31-1-2009 @ 10:12 AM

Flutterby - 31-1-2009 @ 11:19 AM

Something weird is going on. If you want to sell a couple they haven't updated the new prices so try the "J's" in the top 100 Jayne Mansfield, Joss Stone, Julie Christie :o


tarzwal - 31-1-2009 @ 12:01 PM

oh the slow updating of the buy list happens all the time:mad:


crazeecook45 - 31-1-2009 @ 01:16 PM

Tarzwal is correct debratasia. That happens a lot when there is fast updates happening, just keep logging out and in until they correspond.:)

I am looking forward to reacquainting with friends and trying to get them to understand why I've been fixated for all these months but I really do still love them and begging forgiveness until the next fixation starts.:)

Yes I will be glad when it is finished...maybe...until something else comes along;):D;):D


zen - 31-1-2009 @ 08:25 PM

I've emailed FIXated about TDX1's shares as I have been watching him. I haven't been watching Claytons.

Also T&Cs state this ends on 13 February - can't come soon enough - although I enjoy the personal challenge of the game!

Yep crazeecook45 I have BUT I think that they have set up their enquiry system at this point that you will never get a reply or meaningful reply.

You know when you lodge a complaint through the contact us Facility, you get a copy in your inbox and now if you send further details by replying to the email you get a system generated response stating that NO reponses will be received for enquiries sent to that email address (even though it states to send further details to that email address) and that you need to use the Contact Us facility.

You then provide additional information raising a new enquiry number and then they respond that they cannot find any details.

Errr, I think when I raised the last enquiry they would know I was a touch peeved because I have been playing cat and mouse with them about this enquiry for days

So go for it and raise an enquiry as well. It has happened again today. The player's details were correct at 6am (ie around $10000) and now they have a full set of shares even though there has been no update.

I think Clayton's only happened once and not everyday like TDX1


tarzwal - 31-1-2009 @ 10:24 PM

There has been a few really quick updates - sorry didn't have time to post as I was logged out of lottos:mad:


zen - 31-1-2009 @ 10:32 PM

Thanks tarzwal - missed the updates - my shares still are exactly the same. We have become a little complacent and don't expect these quick updates any more!!

I've sent them an Email as well questioning TDX1's unfair advantage:o


zen - 1-2-2009 @ 09:13 PM

There were a couple of quick updates around 7.30 this morning.

I received this reply back fom fixated re TDX1's portfolio.


Hi there

We are aware of this and currently looking into it.

Kind regards.


tarzwal - 5-2-2009 @ 02:48 AM

I have clarified the date that the comp finishes as the terms state 13/2 but game rules have 08/02

This is the response


Thanks for your email.
Sunday 8th February 2009 is when the game finishes, Friday 13th February 2009 is the last day which we do the winner draw, beccause the winner draw is always done on Friday, and even though last draw only includes the last 2 days (7th/8th February 2009) of the competition.

So again, 8th February 2009 is the last day you can play the game with your profile, 13th February 2009 is when the last winner is draw.

Apology for the confusion, and good luck with the game!

Thanks

A couple of days ago I received this email from Fixated in response to mine re TDX1's trading:

Hi there,

Can you let me know when you can see this, what time ect.

Regards,

Support Team


This morning he had just under $10,000 in shares and now has the full portfolio of $27,500. I have taken screen shots both times and emailed them to Fixated.


tarzwal - 5-2-2009 @ 09:57 PM

zen I have now actually received a real person's email address and have sent them details again this morning - as it has happened again today. Checked everyone in the Top 20 and his is the only portfolio that has more than $10000 even though he banked and there has been no update for the day as yet.

The answer to their question - is when he logs in for the day to adjust his shares - until then he shares sit at the correct value (ie: =< $10000) because he has banked


tarzwal - 5-2-2009 @ 10:45 PM

update


crazeecook45 - 6-2-2009 @ 12:59 AM

Tarzwal. I guess we are all hallucinating AND having the same hallucinations as well. AMAZING.

I didn't check this morning but at close last night FX1 had a full portfolio of celebs that had updated to the maximum share price. I didn't see any updates this morning until after 9.00am so I could'nt buy until after that as I had zero cash balance until the prices rolled over.

Was FX1 able to buy before that (AGAIN?)


catbat - 6-2-2009 @ 03:02 AM

EDIT: FROM MYSELF & CRAZEECOOK :D
I can't believe this is nearly over! No more running late on days I have to go out (from logging in & selling overnight shares & buying new ones!) I haven't won a thing, like most of us ;) but still addicted! I didn't start playing properly at the very beginning as I didn't know what I was doing :) but have spent way to much time on this over the last FIVE months! how sad am I!!


crazeecook45 - 6-2-2009 @ 03:11 AM

Catbat-----you should have written that for both of us.:(


I have registered to pay the ASX share game. Has anyone played that. Is it similar to this? Do you have to give it as much of your time to succeed as Fixated?


zen - 6-2-2009 @ 06:02 AM

crazeecook, I was in a rush this morning - had to go to work.

TDX1 had just under $10,000 worth of shares when I logged on at about 6.30. I took a screenshot. I kept checking his portfolio. At 7.35 he had $12,500 worth of shares - 10 celebs from 491 to 500. I took another screenshot and emailed them to Fixated.


By the way - UPDATED!


zen - 6-2-2009 @ 06:13 AM

updated again !


zen - 6-2-2009 @ 06:46 AM

cc that's right. All the shares updated last night before the close of trade - he banked - so at 6am he had a share value only a few cents under $10000 (which is correct because he banked) When he logged in (before the next update)- he bought a full set of shares.

If he had not banked it would have been ok - but he banked - so he shouldn't have been able to buy shares until the first update of the day.


tarzwal - 6-2-2009 @ 02:26 PM

Update


tarzwal - 6-2-2009 @ 07:45 PM

TDX1 has done it again ! He BANKED and now has a full set of shares. There has been no UPDATE for the day as yet!


Have taken screen prints and have referred to fixated.

The others with a full set of shares DID NOT BANK, which is correct!

The others that had an identical portfolio to his at the close of trade and BANKED and have updated their portfolios this morning still only have just under $10000 in shares, which is also correct, as there has been no update!


tarzwal - 6-2-2009 @ 08:41 PM

crazeecook45 - 7-2-2009 @ 12:52 AM

Wonder why they can't see what we see and it has to be proven????

You also wonder why he bothers as there isn't time to catch up with the leader. Well done Choochooing, must be getting excited.

Have you registered for the ASX share game? Did anyone play it last time? Maybe it could feed our addiction. So don't pack the computer yet!!!!:D


crazeecook45 - 8-2-2009 @ 10:46 AM

NO ONE WILL ANSWER ME!!! HAS ANYONE PLAYED THE ASX SHARE GAME!!!!!!!

Whoops sorry. I think that was a withdrawal.



I JUST WANT TO CHECK SHARES SOMEWHERE. (teehee)


Flutterby - 8-2-2009 @ 10:47 AM

Yep played last time. Is more of a 'real' game. Actually would be very interesting this time with the share market the way it is.
I did pretty well I thought having never had anything to do with shares before. If only it was real money - and someone elses ;):P You buy the shares and actually wait for them to go up or down and you don't have to sell them. Very different to Fixated as it is like an introduction the the real world of buying and selling shares.

How often did you seem to have check your shares to keep up with rises and falls?:)


Flutterby - 8-2-2009 @ 11:10 AM

Just once a day - I did it every evening :)

Daily limit on orders

Participants are limited to placing a total of ten (10) orders per trading day (“Daily Limit”). This "Daily Limit" reflects both the buy and sell orders a participant places. For example, a participant will be prevented from placing more orders if they have already placed 4 BUY orders and 6 SELL orders. Partially filled orders will be counted as one (1) order only. For example, if a participant places an order for 5,000 ABC Company Shares on Monday, and 1,000 is filled on Monday, and the remaining 4,000 is filled on Tuesday, this will count as one order only, and will count towards the limit for the day on which the order was placed. (i.e. Monday).

The Game will prevent participants from placing additional orders once the Daily Limit is reached. In addition, the Game will display a message if a participant attempts to exceed the Daily Limit.

Thanks Debratasia. Will give it a try. Friends who have become exasparated with my Fixation fixation have suggested I try the real thing.
This looks like a good practice run.


Flutterby - 8-2-2009 @ 12:07 PM

Yeah it is 'real' in the sense that the share prices are real but the money they give you isn't obviously. I pays to read the tutorials and have a good look around at the site before the game starts.


Flutterby - 8-2-2009 @ 01:14 PM

So I guess that is that :o
Well done choochooing :) Hope you win the lot ... and I hope I get somethingfrom the last draw, fingers crossed :)


mudcrab - 8-2-2009 @ 01:19 PM

Oh, it is over......with deep regret I am about to shut down the fixated tab on my pc......for the very last time.....could'nt they given us a thrill and made all our shares 50.00 in the last hour.......hmmm what sour sobs they are, lol! my hand is slowly moving to it........... oh no....it is gone...forever! ta ta Fixated!


ice-lady - 8-2-2009 @ 01:27 PM

thank god that crap is over now bring back prize rush!!!!!!!!



:)


Ekajata - 8-2-2009 @ 01:33 PM

what a flop of a last day !!

definately won't be touching this one ever again.....

good luck choochooing whoever you may be


crazeecook45 - 8-2-2009 @ 01:50 PM

I started Fixated a week after it started and then , not really understanding the game, bought celebs I actually liked whatever they cost!!!!I'd check back about once a day and think "WOW" I've made $10,000 and sell.
Then for many weeks I would refresh the page instead of logging out and in and wonder why lottoers were saying update when mine weren't:D:D

Anyway to cut a long story short, once I got the hang of it, I decided my objective was to get in the top twenty.
At close I am number 21 BUT would be number 20 if TDX1 was disqualified!!!!!
PS I haven't won a weekly prize.
Well done Choochooing. What a life changing amount of money. Enjoy:)


catbat - 8-2-2009 @ 01:55 PM

Congrats to Choochooing, I hope you have won! Must have put so much time into this & deserve to win!

OMG, I hope what they said in the email is correct. Just thought I would check this morning just to be sure.

Well you can still access your portfolio and the Top 20 list just updated.

I certainly hope it's over!

EDIT: I have lodged another request to verify what I was told is correct both as a new enquiry and to a real person.

No updates that I have seen this morning CC - but I haven't been sitting at the pc 24/07 (what a relief!) Just checking in now and again whilst I clean my house properly for the first time in months!

FX1 is actually TDX1 (LOL). Maybe he doesn't know the game is over and is just sitting there waiting :P

choochooing hasn't actually WON the million - he has won the CHANCE to try and win it.

T&C's state finish date is 13th Feb with last draw 17th Feb so why are you saying it's finished?

Game rules differ and say 8th February as closing date, and has been confirmed via email to lotto's member see post a couple of pages back in this thread.:)


tarzwal - 9-2-2009 @ 10:03 PM

Confirmed again. The game IS over!


The game has now ended any trades you now make will not count towards your final score.

Regards,

Support

You know it is over when you officially mark the post as "Entered" :P:P:P


CODY GIRL - 10-2-2009 @ 09:19 PM

OMG!!! I have $170 MILLION IN MY CURRENT CASH BALANCE:mad: Does that mean that all my money wont be BANKED????::o


Flutterby - 10-2-2009 @ 09:29 PM

The game is finished. No more transactions after 2am monday morning. Sorry but that will never be banked as the bank is closed :(


CODY GIRL - 10-2-2009 @ 09:43 PM

I was buying 4 shares each night so i would'nt get banked and was going to bank it all on the last day:mad: as i thought it finished on Friday at 2am:o,I would have had over $200 MILLION and got into the lottos mini league list!!:(How can they not include all my money?? it was there on Monday!!:(


Flutterby - 10-2-2009 @ 10:22 PM

eek :o If you didn't have at least the 5 celebs it wouldn't auto bank thus why it wasn't counted.


CODY GIRL - 10-2-2009 @ 11:00 PM

Gee.. I dont no wether to cry that all that money was'nt banked,or that im happy its over:D My poor mum did the same thing,she had about $150 mill,:o I'm now laughing about it :P:P:P On to the next comp!!;)Thanks and good luck everyone!!:)


Flutterby - 10-2-2009 @ 11:04 PM

Glad u can laugh about it ... I was thinking about your situation before and just thought that if it was me I would have been very pissed off and cranky and had a good old cry about it ... but that is just me :P:P:P:P:P


Hellbiddy - 13-2-2009 @ 03:18 AM

For those still needing a fix the site is updating and banking, and nothings changes as TDX1 has just made 2.3 million after an update:D


zen - 13-2-2009 @ 05:20 AM

That is so funny - TDX1 must be wondering why no one else is playing and why he hasn't gone up the leader board :P


Hellbiddy - 13-2-2009 @ 05:35 AM

Seems to be a few people still playing so I just spent my $200 to buy some shares:D


zen - 13-2-2009 @ 05:52 AM

Golly you are doing well. I only had $99.50 in shares :P


CODY GIRL - 13-2-2009 @ 09:21 PM

They BANKED MY $166 MILLION!!! YIPPY:P:P:P That put me 23rd in lottos League:D:D Im sooooo "HAPPY":P:P:P

They banked my mum as well,so im back in her good books:P:P


catbat - 20-2-2009 @ 01:40 AM

Has Choochooing been contacted about possibly being the winner yet? I noticed its not published til the 26th! I also read about first prize ( I hadn't bothered to go into it much as I knew I wasn't a contender!)
I am so hoping whover has won gets the million $ just to shove it up fixated! On reading about first prize I couldn't help but feeling what a bunch of cheap skates these promoters & this comp has been! After playing for 6 months or so the prize winner has a 1 in 100 chance at the million$ & what does he/she get if they pick the wrong one?? $5,000 measely bucks!! & whats worse they only fly the winnner to Sydney to participate!! Surely they could afford to front for 2 airplane tickets ( the hotel doesn't really cost more if 1 or 2 stay there!) & its for 1 night only!! I mean really how cheap is that! especially for such a loooong comp! & considering how much time the winner would have spent on this 24/7 ( well 20/7 :D ) if they win the $5,000 it'll probably work out to about $1 an hour!!

I agree Catbat, that old Mexican bean trick to find the million but even the Mexican bean trick has only 3 possibilities.
I really hope Choochooing gets as well for the same reasons.


gypsy - 21-2-2009 @ 03:14 PM

I was still checking this daily until tonight & wondering why nobody was changing , says it runs till the 26th at the start of the post .Have only been going to front page to click on the link .:(:o:( Was just getting the hang of it the past few weeks & building up my bank .


Ekajata - 24-2-2009 @ 11:36 AM

I emailed fixated the other day questioning if they had all just up and walked from their desks when this finished hence leaving everything up and running ..... dumb ^^&(*...... their response was that msn want to keep the page 'live' in order to post the winner. They also said everyone who was part of the 'game' would be receiving an email to notify them of the result.


wyvern_of_myst - 26-2-2009 @ 08:05 AM

No email here but todays pns show here:

komala72 - 26-2-2009 @ 08:18 AM

Well done to all of you who had the patience to see this game out. LOL. You all deserve a medal. .....No...make that a trophy


kelster200460 - 27-2-2009 @ 07:50 AM

My email today just said:
It has been 6 months of trading celebrity and we thank you for participating Fixated game, and congratulations to those weekly prizes winners.

And huge congratulations to "choochooing" who's protfolio came first and winning the grand prize of $1,000,000.

Thanks again to everyone for playing!!



Looks like they picked the correct bag :)


bluepurplemoon - 27-2-2009 @ 08:16 AM

Holey moley!! They'd probably still be out celebrating 'cause i know i would!! Huge congratulations to choochooing!


tyecart - 27-2-2009 @ 08:18 AM

12. The Major Prize winner (the “Participant”) will have the opportunity to play the Game for the chance to win $1,000,000. The Game will take place at ninemsn, Level 7, Tower Building, Australia Square, 264 -278 George Street, Sydney NSW 2000 on 12.03.2009 at 3pm SLT.


Good luck to choochooing on the 12th March by the looks of it. Would be an awesome win!

Tye:)


kakadu - 28-2-2009 @ 12:21 AM

EDIT: Oops I see this has already been posted... I thought "choochooing" was a members Hubby... did they win... whats goin' on!!!! LOL





I got an email saying this...

So did "choochooing" win the Million??? - I hope so as he deserves to win - but I thought he had to pick a case or something and it was a 1 in 100 chance???


Ekajata - 28-2-2009 @ 01:01 AM

all a little confusing I think - the email says one thing and terms say another.


catbat - 28-2-2009 @ 01:47 AM

Yes I just read my email & thought he must have won it as it says so! Then I see he hasn't even been to the 'event' yet. No surprise we got that email tho, they've been contradicting themselve's the whole way through!
Choochoing if you are a members husband... Good luck on the big day!! PS Is any one else as daft as me ( & willing to admit it :P:D ) I often pronounce members names wrong on this site & months (or years) later get it right & think "You idiot!"
For Choochoing I have been saying Coo-ching sounding like when people talk about money /when a cash register goes off sort of sound (well they used too!) Which was quite appropriate for the fixated game!
Then recently I thought its probably like choo-choo-ing more like a train sound!! :D :D
I also always said karen-electronic instead of karen-cleo-tronic!! Many others too but I won't embarrass myself any further!! :o:D


kakadu - 6-3-2009 @ 12:06 AM

any updates?? :P:o;)


tarzwal - 10-3-2009 @ 11:11 AM

Sorry would have given an update earlier but I can't seem to keep up with all the daily posts and very rarely see most (I think I need some pointers - help!!!!)

choochooing will be flying up to do the draw on Thursday. And no, they would not pay for another airfare, just one.

Mind you getting this organised....grrrrr!

Any ideas on the lucky number?

choochoo thanks you for the well wishers:)

:P catbat - I do that with the names as well :P


zen - 10-3-2009 @ 11:26 AM

Good luck to choochooing!!! Keep us posted on how he goes.


compson - 10-3-2009 @ 12:36 PM

I think they should give them the $1 million as they have widely advertised that they have already won it (via emails and in the public notices) - great publicity for msn when this hasn't been the case.

At the very least send out corrected emails and publish in the newspaper that they have a "chance" at winning $1 million.

Anyway good luck - fingers crossed they do pick the correct envelope! :)

Thanks compson:)

I am sure that choochooing would still be waiting advice he was the winner, if he hadn't initiated action.

The poor management has continued at the promoter's end.


dusk2dawn - 11-3-2009 @ 02:58 AM

Tarzwal, good luck for you and choochooing tomorrow, I have my fingers crossed.

As for a number, I'm picking 9 as the million dollar prize.

catbat - 11-3-2009 @ 04:37 AM

Yes A HUGE GOOD LUCK for tomorrow choochooing.
I like number 6 or 31 ( I can never make up my mind!!)


bluepurplemoon - 11-3-2009 @ 05:48 AM

Wishing choochooing the very best of luck & huge truckload of fairy dust is heading your way now!! :)


Tildi - 13-3-2009 @ 09:37 AM

Can we have an update on how Choochooing did?

Be nice to hear the end of the story


kakadu - 16-3-2009 @ 03:31 AM

Any updates yet???? :P
