New Browse page, New Start a Contest Process, New logged in Header

Our site re-design continues at full speed! We just launched a new Browse Contests page, a new Start a Contest Process and a new logged in Header!

We’re using brand new technology to build these pages. All our new pages use HTML5 & Bootstrap and are designed to be responsive – magically re-arranging themselves for different screen sizes, like phones and tablets. You can try this out by visiting one of our new pages & resizing your browser window and seeing things move around!

As with all our new pages, we’re focusing on Simplicity and Ease of Use. We’re discovering that Simplicity is much harder than it looks and involves making hard choices. Making things look simpler only takes you so far – you have to actually make the simpler to reap the benefits. This often involves re-thinking or even removing features and really focusing on what’s most important.

No More Withdrawal Fees (Mostly)


From KniBaron

There are very few things in life that nobody likes. The government likes taxes, frogs like mosquitos and some people even like watching Twilight. But everybody can agree that withdrawal fees are the worst. We don’t like collecting them and you don’t like paying them. So we’re finally getting rid of HTW withdrawal fees for the following withdrawal methods:

  • Paypal
  • Payoneer
  • Mailed Cheques (US Citizens)
  • Email Money Transfer (Canadian Citizens)

Unfortunately we haven’t removed the fee to use Western Union because it’s so much work for us, but we’re working on it!

Please be aware we can’t eliminate the fees charged by those companies to use their services (we would if we could!) but every little bit helps. If you have any suggestions or ideas about other payment methods, let us know!
