Round Two of the Current CTP Teams Current Season

G’day all from Rob P.

Well for those that have not woken up to the fact we had a Restart in the CTP Teams competition.
The First day of the new competition threw up some interesting things, there was movement in many teams as some readjusted.
So that has changed the way things might go in this current competition. Time will tell

Hopefully, most of you will find most things are working properly with a bit of fine tuning still needed but the bulk of stuff is working. As I find issues or people make it known I am forwarding a list to Tim Linden regularly to get things sorted. Give it time and all should come good. Tim is a busy person with other things on his mind and a health issue but he has promised to get things right.

So in other news, I took what minimal ideas that were given in my last post and I am drafting up a list of improvements, guidelines and rules to give to TimTech to see what can be done and changed etc. If you have any feedback or ideas on what you might like to see in upcoming Teams Competitions please let me know by commenting here or sending me a message at CTP. Also if you have any input on what you would like published here please say so.

Enjoy the current season and good luck to all teams participating.

    Ahem ,just noticed something

    1 KORE4 Kristina Galinovic 15 100 0 9 202.9M

    2 MEMBER Rosy Di Lucia 15 100 0 7 14.9M

    I surf to surf, I like team surfing but when ya see crap like this
    it really does nothing for the competition. You are telling me that these
    2 each completed 100 vault and keys in 17 hours ? That is about 7800
    pages surfed each yet as i look at the stats that appear for both
    vault and key sites ppm and manual hits neither appear with that number of
    pages surfed. Nor does the xp that would be gained coordinate with the xp levels they are showing, should be much higher.

    Until someone makes a commitment to change this will always be a joke. Is that good for growing this community and making TE’s a somewhat viable ad source ?

    I dont think so…. Im not whining , Im just sayin….

    Integrity is like a virgin….one prick and its gone…

    Back to business, cancel this season, remove this nonsense,
    get Tonald Drump in here to makes TE’s great again

    • Shelly Lane says:

      Tim, with respect I think your math is wrong. To earn 100 keys, you would need to surf 7700-7800 pages total, that much is true. But divided across 4 TE’s that comes to 1925-1950 of surfed pages on each TE. It requires some hours of surfing but is accomplished easily enough. And if you check the stats again, I think you will find that they indeed match up with those numbers.

      There are others who surf at this level routinely, including myself. I understand it’s hard to fathom why anyone would spend so many hours clicking on TE’s. I question it myself some days! LOL

      But cheating? Nope.

    • I would like to add to all this alot of people have other jobs other than surfing all day so cant surf 1000’a of times a day

    • Cheryl Fitzjohn says:

      i saw that too we were against that team then. I think they saved them up for the subs. But lately I have to play a sub so i can get new peice. it says winner. in goodies. when i only have one play
      trump aint making anything great.

  3. soph142 says:

    Wow, would not be the 1st time possible cheating has been noted. Sadly some clickers pass over to others using the same computer! Some sites used to impose max daily clicks. That went out of the window with PayPal so it seems. Trumping heffalumps get trampled!

  4. Tim Hanson says:

    Thats all good and great miss shelly but take your math,

    yes its 4 te’s but you only get a point for each set of 2 keys
    you collect, unless something has changed===NOT on each key. Just like
    subgames, fill the card get the point.

    100 vaults @ 78 clicks per vault x 2 (ya need 2 keys for 1 vault)

    I have surfed here long enough to know the amount of XP that is gained and
    anyone that would complete that many would be much higher especially with
    those bonuses

    I didnt call anyone a cheater by the way …but thanks for defending what most already know is true.

    Im not wasting my time here anymore…..serves my business and my reason
    for advertising ZERO

  5. Kristina Galinovic says:

    Mr Tim, with respect math is simple: one complete vaults valid 2 point, not 1 as subs. So that’s 50 complete vaults and I have done it many times so far. It takes a few hours to surf for that and it is not unreachable. Accusing someone of cheating is not nice especially if that is not true. You can accuse me of anything but not for cheating because I surf myself on one computer. I know Rosy and Shelly do the same thing. If someone is good in something does not mean cheating. I do not like to comment but since my name is mentioned, I have the right to answer. That is why I will repeat the only post I have been releasing so far linked to this season before the restart. I’m in the CTP competition for 3 years but for me, that’s a great thing. I met wonderful people who helped me a lot. People from my team but also from other teams and thank you very much for that. As John said this is a game and team members need to contribute as much as they can to make this a fun and healthy competition. Each of us has its own life and responsibilities, and sometimes we are surfing a lot sometimes less. I surf because I like it and I love to compete. Each competition has its own tactics and I think the subs is tactics here so I think they should still be able to save them. The prize would motivate the members to participate and as has been said there is a lot of goodies: xp battery, tokens, prize wheel, bonus round. However there is a lot of bug which needs to fix it so that the competition would be fun and healthy. So CTP owners fix the bugs, offer some prize and return the CTP competition to what it really is fun and healthy game where people will hang out and have fun.


  6. soph142 says:

    Well I was going to give up quite soon on CTP and all TE sites. But the clickers mentioned above do THOUSANDS of daily clicks on many sites. Maybe their team leaders in CTP are not that active to see what sites they operate on! Sad team management

  7. Tim Hanson says:

    First no where in my original post did I call anyone a cheater.

    Its not a personal attack but I have been around long enough and
    i know well how it works, I have surfed 10-15000 pages in a day
    and then I realized what is the point ? What am I gaining.

    If that is your FOCUS you are missing my point.

    There is however cheating being done.

    You want to talk about team building and community and all these
    wonderful things, I couldnt agree more. Team surfing is great for that.
    Community is about togetherness sharing in a common goal. If we are advertisers
    are we in team competition just to compete or are we building business ?

    The people that are being “cheated” are the advertisers that
    come to the sites and the owners of said sites and here is why.

    If you have people surfing and surfing for hours for 1000’s of pages
    at some of these said sites you are burning other peoples advertising
    credits just to claim a gadget for some points toward some goal.
    I found out real fast that the sites involved in most of the games
    and in the “competition” do not convert well on my advertising, why ?
    because people are just clicking to click to win some pride.

    You want TE advertising to be a somewhat good way to build and advertise
    whatever you are marketing but what you are saying is counter productive
    to the community as a whole. If we are clicking through 10,000 pages in 12 hours
    are we really adding any value to the community. I personally will not
    spend money at any site that I can clearly see folks just assaulting their mouse
    to grab a penny or a badge or a point. Its a waster and its just plain counter productive.

    Your responses further affirm my opinion. Enjoy burning each others credits
    to win some fictional pride for your team, I shall take my money elsewhere.
    I am glad I got under your skin a little bit, everyone is so tender and defensive.
    Look a little deeper, want community make the community, care about each other, teach each other , grow with each other. CTP was a great start but when you pull
    back the sheets and see the amount of waste and damage that is being done to the
    community as whole it is really ugly.

    Enjoy your season, enjoy burning each other credits.

    • I’m not on any of the truly competitive teams but I was just thinking the same thing as you, Tim. I surf a lot at the Timtech sites and I know that it’s going to be a time-waster but I do it anyway. I am a huge procrastinator when it comes to actually doing things like cleaning πŸ™‚ But anyway, I will surf to gain credits, and then just dump them onto my sites and hope for the best. To be honest, I have signed up for various things many times I see while surfing at startxchange, but I can’t say that happens with everyone. I see more results from the sites that aren’t on these badge-driven ones.

      Out in the real world, I deal with marketing and merchandising so I see all the screaming labels and nonsense all day long. I come here and see the same amount of noise to sound ratio here at various traffic exchange adverts. My own personal thing is…how can anyone notice anything when we have become inured to all the blah blah that is constantly thrown at us?

      I try to keep my ads simple, no slick production, just easy to read and then I send it out into the world. What else can I do? πŸ™‚

      Thanks Tim, and it’s nice to know that someone else is thinking what I’m thinking..

    • Lols, Not enough coffee this morning! I meant “Signal to Noise Ratio” not whatever the heck I wrote πŸ™‚

  8. Shelly Lane says:

    I think the “gamification” of the TE’s has been a double edged sword. On the one hand, it encourages one to surf more pages than they might ordinarily surf. And on CTP specifically, it encourages surfing a diverse portfolio of TE’s. Both are important for building a list and building a business. On the other hand, it also encourages surfing sites quickly to gain as many points as possible, to Tim’s point.

    I can only speak to how this works for me. When I am surfing (within the CTP game or not), it is possible that a page/ad is only my screen for a short moment before I click through to the next. However, in that short moment I am able to recognize if I’ve seen it before. If I’ve previously viewed that ad and decided that it’s not for me, it doesn’t matter if I stare at it for a few more seconds or not. I’ve already chosen not to engage with it and nothing is likely to change that. If it’s an ad I don’t recognize, I linger on it for a few moments to take a look and see what it’s offering.

    The CTP game is what it is. If one enjoys it and gains something from it, they are likely to continue to participate. If not, then they will leave and find something that better fulfills their needs.

    Each individual should do what’s best for them.

  9. Kristina Galinovic says:

    I do not surf for some awards or pride or I click on my mouse as crazy. I surf because I love it. I found many great sites when I surfed. Some sites I surf regularly and some because of the competition. Nobody is pushing me to surf over 1000 pages or spend my time and money where I do not want, I do it because I want it. For me, it’s not all in money or advertising , as I have already said, I met many wonderful people and I’m glad about that. The people I hear regularly, we talk, laugh and weep together. If I make some money with surfing or some referral that is OK if I don’t I’m okay again. The online job has existed for a long time and I know that I went into it late and did not have any great expectations to build my business. In some I succeeded, in some I did not, but that is life. I do what I like I’m hanging out and having fun. For me CTP competition is a game and if I can help my team to win I’ll do it. We are all adults and do what we want, we are free to decide what to do, where we spend our time and money. I look at it that way, you can agree with me or you can think I’m crazy.

  10. I think the thing I miss most in ctp teams is the excitement each season seems to lose more and more of that excitement. Just look at the chats at the beginning of ctp teams there was lots of communication now they are barren wastelands.

  11. Chrissy Collete says:

    Just because there’s no place to post this….

    I have now gotten more than one email titled something about doing the uber profit model…

    Well there aint no such thing as the uber profit model. They lose billions.

    Hardly a model to emulate.

  12. Sig says:

    And now we are in April πŸ™‚

  13. soph142 says:

    Blink! May 5 hrs away in UK πŸ™‚ My final month in TE so I wish all Owners and advertising Affiliates health, wealth and good luck as I won’t be here in June

  14. So it is May 1st and the season ended on April 26th! Not a single word about the playoffs! I am reminded of a line from a song from the 70’s. “Does anybody really know what time it is? Does anybody really care?” Obviously TimTech doesn’t!

  15. Ole says:

    TT are just to busy other places… CTP – what is that ? oh it was a site we had… geeze we had a team game going to …uh oh

  16. Howard Fullmer says:

    I find it funny how people only make comments when its about time for the playoffs the game dont mean much until the playoffs are near

  17. Ole says:

    Well Howard – LACK of information triggers that

  18. garylee says:

    I’m wondering if TT is thinking of closing up shop. I would think they already have but the subs are still being bought and changed on a daily basis. Too bad they can’t even finish the playoffs first.

  19. soph142 says:

    Sorry Rob & all but my TE life & online adventures all died as I have better real life things to do! Cancelling all payments now

  20. Ole says:

    What a lot of crap the whole CTP has become – and do they care if people think that – no. So it will be funny to see if they will ever respond and admit they have forgotten about the game

  21. Howard Fullmer says:

    is this the end of ctp teams

  22. Julie says:

    Playoffs? for season 11

  23. Which of these will happen first?

    1. A first year Hockey Team in Las Vegas NV USA wins Stanley Cup. (That Team needs 6 more wins…) or
    2. CTP Teams Season 11 Playoff starts!

    Hopefully these will BOTH happen within the next month… πŸ™‚ Stay tuned!

  24. I for one have stopped collecting badges and XP. They have absolutely no value and the time it takes for the screen to load is just a waste of time that I can use surfing more pages and collecting more credits

  25. soph142 says:

    Sad for advertisers/owners, I am slowly going to sites I joined to resign. Hey found an offline life too

  26. Ole says:

    Not much worthy here anymore… go support the sites that are still active and where advertising still goes on – they dont care about us so why care about cTP

  27. Remon says:

    Many sites are closed

  28. Happy Memorial Day everyone! Go Golden Knights Go! 4 Wins for the Stanley Cup Championship! Much better odds now than the odds of CTP Teams Season 11 Playoff starting…

  29. I hope the Golden Knights win πŸ™‚ For Thomas’ sake πŸ™‚ I think TT has forgotten about all their sites except for the new ventures. I am still getting signups for my own TE, so there are people here looking at the ads. I noticed many of my friends on here have cancelled their Kore4, which is telling, to say the least. I think TT can still be viable, but I think they need to pay attention to CTP to do so…

  30. Yesterday, Saturday June 23, 2018 , The Amazing CTP Teams Season 11 – finally – came to an end. The Awesome Team “We Are Family” won a hard fought battle with “Phoenix” – I am proud to be a part of the Winning Side! I am sad though to see “The Cavalry” ride off into the Sunset – Thanks Phil for 2 great seasons with your Team – and now Cash Surfing Network is gone! A Tip of my (Vegas Golden Knights) Helmet to “The UBERS” and “The Soaring Eagles” for their fierce competitions and I hope “Lucky 13″,”The Surfaholics”, and “Beginners and Winners” stick around for Season 12 – maybe even add a couple of Top Teams from The Competitive Division perhaps?

    Comments anyone?

    • Deborah Cook says:

      Congratulations to We Are Family and Phoenix for making the finals and a big congrats to We Are Family for taking out the trophy (or the picture of it). I also hope that the remaining teams are still around for Season 12 because I enjoy the friendly competition it creates.

  31. Sig skeie says:

    is it the Begiining of the end?

  32. pRINCEWILL says:


  33. Sig skeie says:

    Well, a lot going on around.

    I myself hope some of you can help donate to this lil ill gils, just click link and red about her and her family…if there still is any people that believe in heling others and #Savealife
