I've been really patient with this, but am wondering why I'm always getting offered low points on both wheels. I've never seen prizes, and only twice was it possible to get bonus SparkGoodie points. I did win once. But this is all I've seen in over a year. If the points are done randomly, I guess I'm pretty unlucky!

The wheel is completely random and I don't believe it changes the values at different times of the day (it should have the same values all day for you). But the points are done randomly.

The low points only wheels are back! 2 points on the sign in - and the bonus wheel -which I did not spin yet - has a lot of 3's a few 5's and 7 is its high. I tried 3 different web browsers looking for a "random" wheel that might look better. It's the SAME wheel no matter which web browser I use. I'll spin later - maybe a good wheel will come up in a few hours. It's just a little frustrating. I have never seen a "prize" on any wheel - and yes, I did get goodie points a few times - but not recently. Does someone determine who is going to get good wheels? Or how frequently? Do you get better wheels early or late in the day? Or if you haven't signed on for a while? When I first started, I always got better wheels than now - no prizes or goodie points, but higher point levels. emoticon

For me the wheel points seem pretty random, which I think it's supposed to be! I try not to let it get to me if I get a bunch of "low" spins in a row, but that doesn't keep me from feeling pretty happy when I get a high-point spin!

Yesterday, I posted (on a couple of sites) that I hadn't seen a decent sign-in wheel or Bonus Wheel since the changes. Just 2's and 3's - too little to even use to update my status. (Who wants to say they "like" a 2 point spin???) Today, I got a 10 on each wheel! Was someone watching?

Yesterday, I posted (again) how many articles you have to "like" to get three points! Today, I got the 3 points from "liking" and "Tweeting" only four articles (not 17 to 20 like before). I think maybe someone sees these and silently helps . . . If so, emoticon emoticon

These are teeny little issues, but when you have SO SO SO many things going wrong in your life, you turn to SparkPeople for support - and even these teeny little issues matter.
