Since: Apr 2011
Just remember i did not say the time period over which that $10 would be paid. just saying it pays to read the fine print or if there isn't any assume that there is.
First of all a qango would have to be created to take charge of the organization of such pay out, obviously there would first have to be documented proof that the film at screening time had that name and although i accept the honesty of many proof would have to be obtained and verified by both a member of the judging panel and an independant witness like a JP.
Once the list of eligible teams had been compiled that would have to be put forward to another committee, the qango of course having had to be disolved so as to ensure there could be no conflict of interest arising.
Disolving the qango of course will take a considerable amount of time as procedures have to be put in place, the legal complexities are difficult but things must be correct.
the new committee will then have to first double check the findings of the qango, accepting on faith is all well and good but when my hard earned cash is at stake it is important to get these things right, obviously none of you would want to se my money awarded fraudulently.
Having completed that task, again a very time consuming process, a sub committee would have to be formed to debate the order of payment, by region, alphabetically or by a first in first served basis. The possibilities are endless and we'd want to make sure the payout is handled fairly.
Once they've reported back then it can be passed and handed on to a much smaller group who will be tasked with the handing out of the payments, note i said the handing out of the payments as no where in the offer was it stated that the recipients would have the money delivered to them, you want the prize you come and get it.
in order to be fair about this another committee will be formed to debate the length of time each successful recipient will have to pick up their due reward, let's face it, 1 day, 1 year just how long should I have to hang about wasting my time waiting for the pick up, it's a serious matter.
So as you can see there are indeed a lot of variables to be taken into account however in order to be fair, I'd like to think I'm fair I'll say this.
The first person who contacts me and says their film is called Just Saying goes to the top of the list and gets paid out instantly, everyone else must go through the required format laid out which may or may not change as any situtation seen or unforseen may arise. Shifty Inc will not be held legally liable to move more quickly on this matter than they feel fit.
Just saying. :)
