2 EDITOR'S NOTE
3 JULY HIGHLIGHTS
5 COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT
7 COMING SOON
The second half of 2018 is well and truly here! How have you been finding the Winter
months? Interestingly, when we polled members from New Zealand and Australia about
whether they would be interested in visiting Antarctica, the results were the same
across both countries - 78% of people would like to visit the icy continent! Wonder
whether the results would change if we posted this poll again in the middle of Summer?
In this issue of the Toluna New Magazine, we've got some updates and highlights, as
well as the Community Spotlight. There are some cryptic clues on what to expect in the
near future, and as always, a secret contest where you can earn 1000 bonus points!
Get warm and cozy and enjoy the issue!

UPDATE: TOLUNA'S WORLD CUP TOURNAMENT
The Toluna World Cup has sadly come to an
end, and we hope you enjoyed it!
You may have noticed that many of you
showed passion for this event by participating
in the game we launched. You may also have
noticed that the game fell victim to its own
popularity, which caused a few bugs.
Because of this, we want to take the time to
properly check the game data to ensure that
you all get the points you deserve.
This means that we'll need a little more time than anticipated to announce the winners.
We will make these checks as quickly as we can, and hope to be able to announce the
winners on 31st July, so keep an eye on your notifications!
We apologise for any inconvenience this might cause and thank you for having
AND OF COURSE,
- THE WORLD CHAMPIONS!
Did you know: The next World Cup in 2022 will by hosted
by Qatar, but the tournament won't start until late
November. The decision to play at the end of the year
rather than during the usual months of June/July, is because
the temperatures during the Qatar Summer would be
unbearable and hazardous to players and fans.
In the vein of Candy Crush and other match-3
style games, you can now play Toluna
MatchMania and compete against your friends
This game is just for a bit of fun - we're not
awarding points through this game. However,
we encourage you to engage in some friendly
competition! Post your high score and see if
anyone else in the community can beat you!
TOLUNA'S BEST WORD-SEARCHERS!
We're glad you've been enjoying the Wordsearch game. It's seems we haven't made it
challenging enough, as we've given away lots of points since this game started! Below
are the top 10 word-searchers from New Zealand so far, based on the number of
times they beat the game! How often can you find all hidden words before the time
If you haven't tried this game yet, have a go before it's too late. This game will end on
31 July 2018. Visit our games page to play.
As you may know, we give away bonus points for good quality content that's posted
on the Toluna website. In addition, those who make our list of top 10 content
creators for 3 or more months in a row can earn additional bonuses of up to 10,000
points through our Content Creators of the Month initiative.
However, we've noticed that there are some members who don't get enough
recognition. This is why we'll be including a "Community Spotlight" section to the
magazine, whenever the need arises. The Toluna member who is in the spotlight will
also receive 10,000 bonus points and we'll showcase the contributions they make to
the site and community.
Therefore, don't be shy! If you have something you want to share or discuss with
other members, post about it and you could be featured in upcoming issues of the
magazine, and score 10,000 bonus points!
SO WHO'S IN THE
SPOTLIGHT THIS TIME?

get noticed. We think you can have some fun
discussions with other members around these
