AMAZING APP WITH AN INCREDIBLE MISSION
I like Givling. I’ve been a supporter for a long time, took a break, and got back into it. They are constantly making changes, but always with good intentions. Everyone has a right to their opinion, but Givling upholds high standards. I appreciate that. You can invest in the cause, your time and/or money, but they have every reason to ban people who try to get in the way of their mission, ESPECIALLY if they are being inappropriate. This isn’t retail where they have to say the customer is always right no matter what. They have a mission, an AMAZING one. They have come SO FAR. Anyone trying to get in the way can leave, honestly. Be grateful. Voice your concerns and opinions, but do so in a respectful way that doesn’t show that your intentions are to give Givling a bad reputation. I’ve invested in this game, and they’ve made changes that I do and don’t like. They aren’t doing it to make people mad or make them leave. I like that they defend themselves publicly when they are bashed publicly. They have that right. There are two sides to every story, and nobody wants to only hear the side of the person that didn’t get their way and tried to bring Givling down. I know Givling is a FFG, and I will keep investing in them until and after my loan is funded. They have created something amazing, and more people need to realize that. Thank you, GIVLING! 🧡🐻 🧡🐻 🧡🐻 🧡🐻 🧡
Working toward greatness
The concept is excellent- crowdfunding student loan payoffs - but is still in the early stages, even after having paid out well over $1 million to date. The current goal is payoff a $50,000 loan per day, AND we’re almost there! To get to the top, players need to accumulate Queue Points by watching 3 short ads per hour for up to 16 hours per day, playing two trivia games per day and watching the subsequent ads, participating in partner offers, buying coins for playing more trivia games or buying Givling merchandise. Each score from the trivia game is randomly paired with other players and the three person team with the highest score splits the pot once per week. The amount of points awarded for coins or different merchandise options seems to be random, and various incentives for participation are offered almost daily. There are two queues, one for those who buy coins and merchandise and one for more passive players who play the games, watch the ads and participate in partner offers. It is a crowdfunding app, and both queues require you to put something in to get to the top. The tech implementation itself has some drawbacks. When too many users are active, the app shuts down for some people, which takes away people’s ability to gain queue points needed to reach the top of the queue to get their loans funded. The technology needs to be enhanced for the targeted scalability.
Love being a force for good
First, I think many people misunderstand this app- or at least those who are giving negative reviews. The whole point of Givling is to crowd fund paying off student loans/mortgages. In order to be able to pay off loans, they need people who are willing to spend money to fund the queue. This happens by paying for coins to play trivia or buying merchandise. But because the mission is to help EVERYONE, Givling also allows people who cannot afford to find the queue an option to have their loans paid off to by offering queue points for interacting with adds/sponsors and using their two free trivia games each day. It does take commitment and effort to move ahead in the queue, but it should as they should be rewarding those who are contributing at a higher level- Again, they have two queues that alternate (green- where purchases are considered and orange where only participation points are counted).
Not only that, but the community of Givlings are awesome and they are always rooting one another on and trying to get to the goal of paying a loan a day. I would highly recommend joining the Givling players strategy group but I love this app and being a FFG!!
