For new members; the gauge is on 100% and a Prize Draw is in progress right now. It will stay on 100% until the draw is complete.
As soon as a prize draw is done, the gauge resets - but not to zero. It always keeps ticking in the background, so it will already be on 25% or similar when it resets.
We had considered dropping the prize draws but users do like them, so they are staying.
Sorry for any confusion, and thanks for your support!
Nice to hear RE the Prize draws!!
It is always kind of neat to think Your going to be a winner!!
Good news. I was rather confused as a new user when I read the News page, which says they were stopping and then they carry on.
