What happened to Port-A-Thon(s) ?

What's going on BB?

I attended 3 Port-A-Thon for BlackBerry10 and got some apps approved.
But I never got any payment notice!

I attended:

Community Port-A-Thon:
Got an eligible for rewards mail!



All Aboard BlackBerry® 10 Port-A-Thon :
Got an eligible for rewards mail!

Last Chance Port-A-Thon :
Got a mail that apps are accepted into AppWorld but no "eligible for rewards mail"!

So what's the issue here?

I found around 100 posts (here and on your blogs) all saying something different! Looks like some already received their payment ...

 

I was really really excited about the commitment BB showed to us Developers, but at the moment it looks quiet depressing. The Dev Alpha is not shipping until "6 to 8 weeks" (updated every 2 week, so I guess the first device ships in 2 years ...).

Wait, wait, and wait :smileymad:

 

Waiting is the hardest part

I don't mind waiting, but not for ages ... And some deadlines would be great as well.
They really understand how to create a great buzz about BB and then destroy all this ...

The app review process is not just a simple yes or no.

Re: What happened to Port-A-Thon(s) ?

For the All Aboard Port-A-Thon I was paid a week ago or so. I received a mail yesterday for my payment details for the Android Port-A-Thon, which was on the same time as the Commuinity Port-A-Thon.


A like is always appreciated,
but a nomination for BB Elite even more :-)

I haven't heard anything about All aboard (all apps are approved & for sale). Received milestone mail today for Android, although 2 apps are still pending review.
