your stats to members in the forum is the least bit misleading.
I'm not here to get rich either. I must say that my expectation when joining and the results of my labors have not been the same. I expected more than I got.
It's been my experience that people often do not read, but they assume very well. My forum stats state:
Member Since 18 Jul 2009
Likes Given 8
Likes Received 32/19
Now surely in such a money making thing as a PTC I have made more that a measly $212.99 in 2 plus years, right? That must be for a month, since the timespan is not noted and it's just impossible to think that someone would remain here making such a small amount.
Now, if the stats said "Earned $212.99 since 18 Jul 2009", it would be more accurate and leave little to be assumed, or determined by "logic" (or lack thereof).
Maybe it's not so much here, but in other forums and in promoting PTC, including ClixSense, I've read a lot of posts and advertisements that, while not lies, left a lot to be imagined and had steering in place to cause erroneous assumptions. I often feel like I'm reading a "Used Car Sales pitch". - "Yes sir, the engine runs just fine (considering it has 500,000 miles on it and we've doctored it up. Probably won't last a week.)".
All I'm saying is that stats can be misunderstood depending on the circumstances, situation and/or person.
As a side: Why don't you show the number of referrals you have?
