As you know, Naija Stories was formed with a view to encouraging Nigerians to read more, write more and enjoy themselves while doing so. This is why since our inception, we have launched various initiatives to reward people for doing so.
One of these initiatives is the point system, where if a member accumulates a number of points, they can convert the same to financial rewards. The details of the policy have been spelt out here and here.
We have been operating this system for over two years, and after reviewing the operation of this system, we have determined that it is no longer financially viable to operate it at this current time. Therefore, we are retiring the system, and from today, we will no longer be able to redeem points, including any points that you may have obtained over time before this announcement.
Those who have converted winnings from contest prizes or other earnings into points may contact firstname.lastname@example.org with details in order to redeem their points.
We wish to thank all of those who have participated in the system, and let everyone know that we remain committed to our mission of encouraging Nigerians to become more avid readers and writers.
We also apologize for any inconvenience.
The point system will remain a part of the site and ranking system, but the points accumulated will be for bragging rights only and may not be cashed in for a monetary reward.
Thanks again for your understanding.
