For those who know me and those who don't .
I've been driving uber for the past 3 years , and I'm the FIRST one to about fuber wrong doings ..

But ... All the threads and speculations and calculations about hourly guarantee pay vs. medal pay ... I call BS

listen , I'm on hourly for few good weeks now .. And yes some nights are better then the other ... But there i have NO PROBLEM getting pings even though I'm on "hourly" promo ...


I drive select .. And sometimes I switch to x when it's surging or when I just feel I need a little shake n bake instead idling ... Boom I get plenty of uber x pings !!!
I mean it ... And once again ... I'd be happy to hop on the wagon of at uber ...

But all u professors are doing the wrong math !!!

Oh wait ... I'm getting stacked x pings in ... The valley ......

Ugh ... What is the lesson we learned today class ???

Pings in core la ? Nooooo
Pings elsewhere ? Yesssss

Good class , good ..

What needs to happen to make y'all understand that all u gotta do is open the damn passenger app and compare areas with ants before u head there ?

I've seen spreadsheets .. People come up here and say their friends and cousins tried to ping them blah blah ...

Guys guys guys ... Yes uber manipulate where the pings go to ... At times ... BUT it has nothing to do with the different promos !


Don't believe me ? Try it to yourself leave core la and make sure u are not surrounded by ants and u are gewd ta go !

And btw... I had few select pings this week from 10 min away ... And I immediately opened the passenger app to see if there's closer select cars to the ping and yes they were ... But I still got it ! And I'm on hourly .. Not medal ... And no my rating isn't 4.9

Uber manipulates pings... that's all you need. You don't need to add "...based on promos" or anything else. Uber manipulates pings. So I guess it's ok to receive an email saying you'll make 20/hr plus 150$ bonus after 30 rides, except, oh no, that day no pings, they all went somewhere else.

They always said AND EVEN STRESSED in tons of ads that the closest gets the ping. It isn't so. A judge is going to catch up on that, sooner or later.

Screwdriver this forum should be taken with a grain of salt.
There are those that complain about earings than within the same breath post weekly statements of great monetary value.
This here place is no different than watching nbc or fox news. Entertainment and boredom should be what's gained here.

I take offense to you're quote. I been nothing but helpful and a model citizen in the UP community. I've been trying to get the whining noobs heads out of their cornholes.

I agree with you 200%.

They have made these assumptions about medals and hourly with nothing to back it up other than they just suck at getting pings.

The sample size is non-relevant to how many drivers are in the market. They took a pole of 15 drivers in a market of 60,000 drivers. Sorry, not only is their assumption beyond ignorant, their data to back up their alleged findings is a joke. 15 drivers does not make a scientific pole.

We all know you have to be in the right spot at the right time. Space yourself away from everyone.

It's the same thing where everyone thinks they are all great drivers. "I'm a 4.6 but that BS." Is it now. Then why are people 4.7, 4.8,4.9. I'm even tired of reading how great everyone is at driving and it's everyone else's fault they're a 4.6. Let's face it, you people need a dose of reality. If you're being deactivated it's because you suck. There's nothing else to state. Too many driver are above 4.9. They drive the same people you drive. Don't need to hear BS how it's everybody else. You just suck at the job.

Unfortunately, there are so many egos on here people just can't admit they don't know how to do the job.

It's not just turning on and driving around.

I call BS too on the pings. I haven't been having any issues. I think I'm on silver. Not sure. I don't try to medal. I just make what I want to make then call it day.

I didn't post in that thread because it was just a bunch of stupid and I didn't have the patience or for that matter wanted to waste my time reading all that stupid.

I think the fickle uber rider makes a choice in what vehicle they want to ride in and that is why some drivers get more pings than others even though there may be closer rides to them.

Why don't we meet up somewhere and I'll stand next to you while you send an X request and watch it go to someone 8 minutes away?
Assuming you are talking to the OP since you didn't reply to any other poster.

There is a way to get priority pings over others. It has nothing to do with medals or hourly. I would share, just not feeling appreciated at this point, so the rest of you rocket scientist can figure it out for yourselves.

Doesn't really matter if it's you, OP, or anyone else that wants to test this theory.
