It does matter when the site has liquidity issues. If its a big one its good sign.

Have you seen their books? I've seen numerous online sites go down and none of them cut rewards the day or week they went down. Plus there's other reasons why I want to know if they are processing large withdrawal.

Responding with a "yawn" to a valid question/concern makes you look like a shill.

Re: [Non-US-Players] Cashout tracking and discussion thread

Ok so what if he says his amount what will it prove? Right, nothing. (neither when it's big, nor when it's small)

No, i haven't seen their books, and indeed, i stand corrected, i have no way of knowing whether they are or aren't in liquidity issues, even if they do or don't cut down on the rewards i guess, i just assume they'd cut down on them given their RB is so big, but if other sites that gave really high RB also didn't cut down on them and still went broke, then yeah clearly i'm wrong. (you have no point when it are sites that have rather "normal" rewards, though: they wouldn't be able to cut down on them without simply losing a lot of people, ultimately not gaining any profit on the deal, look at Merge for example. What i'm trying to say is: oftentimes giving out less wouldn't be more profit for the site, because they'd get less traffic. In Lock's case however, i think it's pretty safe to say cutting down on rakeback would simply mean more pure profit for them (unless they overdo it ofcourse).)

Please stop the distractions and let's just see what the answer to Ditch Digger's question is. If the withdraw is near max it is a significant data point. Of course it doesn't PROVE anything. It is, after all, only one data point.

I follow these threads pretty closely, and I have definitely found that max withdrawals for ROW players are taking longer than small ones for Lock.

Just to be clear, neither of these posts are about Lock specifically.

This has not been historically true with sites that go under.

You're probably right, rarely do rooms cut checks the day they go down, but the "day they go down" doesn't really exist. What happens is rooms stop paying and after awhile everyone says "ok this room has gone under." But if you pay 80% of your mortgage one month, 50% the next, 20% the next, 10% the next, 5% the next, then stop paying, when should the bank have been concerned?

Again, not saying that is happening to Lock, just looking at the logic of what you are saying because I do not think it is there.

That said, I think it is obvious that everyone should be interested in the requested date, date it hits your account and amount of your cashout. It makes no sense not to be interested in that since this is a cashout discussion thread.

Guys, there is a clear answer here: Go through all the public posts of payouts and list them all in a single post (Req, Rec, Total days, Amount).

Then we can study them to see if there is any evidence of larger taking longer, smaller taking shorter.

While it's great to see this, this post has made me so ****ing impatient at the same time -_- now i'm thinking every day "omg it could arrive already" while it may also still take weeks.

I wonder how some people get paid when they requested after that date and others don't.

Doesn't make any sense
Req: December 24th
Amount: $10,000

Still hasn't arrived...

Maybe Shane can look into this? Why are the Skrill cashouts so random now? Some guy reporting in a little over a week, others 45 days ish and then some others apparantly 60+ days? Who comes up with these orders?
