5.0. GO coins value.
5.1. A GO coin is the value of any activity that a StretchGO user performs at StretchGO platform. It is therefore not a real coin managed by any bank or financial institution. The value of a GO coin is determined by StretchGO itself during any payroll depending on the overall activity and the cumulative effort of the StretchGO community. It is the responsibility of each user at StretchGO platform to appreciate and/or depreciate the value of a GO coin. You therefore, acknowledge that you will be engaged in activities that make GO coin value appreciate or stabilize.
5.2. There is no warranty of your ownership of GO coins as GO coins are a measure of what you do at StretchGO and the cumulative value of what you do and others do on the platform accrues.
5.3. GO coins must be earned through a combination of the allowed earning methods. You MUST not request a withdrawal of GO coins earned through only one activity. There must be an equal or near equal measure of earning through the various allowed earning methods for a valid withdrawal to be processed. In the event that a withdrawal is made of GO coins earned through one kind of activities or less than one percentile of the minority activity, such GO coins will neither be processed nor refunded to the account. It is the responsibility of the account holder to check through his/her own activity to ensure equal or near equal distribution of the various ways of earning GO coins before requesting a withdrawal.
6.1. StretchGO applies a fine/penalty to the accounts of EXPERTS who post spam content or wrong answers on topics and questions. This is for the sole reason of ensuring the quality of the answers provided to the IN NEEDS are of the highest quality in the web. QAD (Quality Assurance Department) is responsible for this. Staff in the QAD will scan answers placed in a certain topic and delete and apply penalty of up to 50% of the answer value to the account of the member who placed that wrong answer. It is therefore important that each and every member on StretchGO who decides to place an answer on any question should place an answer which is 100% correct to help the IN NEEDS.
6.2. There is nothing like half-fact. You either know the answer or you do not know the answer. If you do not know the answer to a posted question, simply leave it. Someone who knows the answer will eventually answer it. You may post an answer, earn a GO coin; then loose that GO coins and get a penalty when the QAD visits your answer. This will be a complete waste of time.
6.3. Repeated posting of wrong answers will attract a suspension or termination of your account or answering previledge.
