Then, to my absolute horror, I see that Clixsense has been sold to Prodege!! I could live with most companies taking over but Prodege is not one of them.

Their main site (are we allowed to mention it seeing as it is not a rival anymore?) has been deteriorating at a rapid
Why not since the information is public domain, by law there is nothing preventing us. You are referring to Swagbux right ? Yes it is one of the many sites operated by them, and yes you are correct, I fully share your concerns and I got the confirmation by a member I know from that site who confirmed to me the decline, whether this decline affects some countries or all I don't know. In all fairness, this general decline can be felt on all GPT sites - I've even had discussions with an owner of another big GPT I am on who confirmed to me that there are less advertisers / publishers, some of the providers have shut down over the years, and some have opted out from the CASH rewards traffic and moved towards in-app non cash rewards exposure for better data quality, so yeah I said it many times in the past, GPT is dying, in my opinion, from a business perspective, it was a good move to sell, though the move won't benefit us as members, allegedly, at least it does not seem so initially, and yes lower rates I can see it already, and now survey invites are mostly recycled rubbish, same with Appen acquiring F8, they also acquired another crowd sourcing paltform int he past, and you can research online to see if things got better or not
All in all it is a very sad day for us all, being taken our affiliates and sponsors is the last thing I was expecting.
Prodege have zero interest in user satisfaction and have absolutely no respect for it's users either.
I share this opinion.
Will see how things go but I have zero patience or sanity to deal with 2 declining websites. And as for the new name, I have no words....
I do have choice words but I cannot say them, so I will just say how unoriginal and unappealing,(removed rest, for legal purposes).
