Community port-a-thon - mistake with the accepted applications/releases

[ Edited ]

Hello

I had some BB10 applications prepared during AllAboard port-a-thon, apps were accepted and I have received information about rewards.

Later I have prepared new releases (I improved UI) and I uploaded the new releases. My problem is that I uploaded them last weekend, during Community port-a-thon. As a result, yesterday I have received email with information that I am eligible for money rewards for my 3 applications. But it was only a new release, not a new application! I was not even registered for Community ptt - I had no new apps so I did not register myself.

 

I think it is unfair, I want to ask RIM to stop my payment process for the Community port-a-thon (for 3 apps).

 

BTW: I do not know if it is someone's mistake or bug in their system - if it is bug, someone may use it for getting cash just for a new releases.

I do not know RIM's email where I should send this information, so for now I send it here, meybe someone from RIM find it.

I think what is happening is that RIM is stay paying for apps so the money is used even though 15000 app were sent its doesnt mean 15000 will be approved.

 

i understand how you might see it as not fair but look at it this way the sponser are giving out the money i think based on RIM sugestions.

But it means they pay twice for this same app!

Each payment gets reviewed (we were told at least). So, in theory, the double payment should be caught.

Re: Community port-a-thon - mistake with the accepted applications/releases

Thats crazy. hmmm I don't think it'll actually happen. they have a 4-6 week delay before paying out, so there is plenty of time to catch that "new release" and decline it before payments start happening!
