There are now 5 categories of payout types that depend on the membership status. Taken from the official forum.
Category 1. Members who comply with the 50/50 rule. These members will be given the highest priority, and will always be the first paid. If these members continue to upgrade within the 50/50 rule, then they will always remain in category 1.
Category 2. Upgraded members who have 2 or more pending cashouts. These members will be given the 2nd priority. They will be paid for their first pending cashout, ( or first and second in some cases) but, as previously they will need to upgrade again to be paid for their last pending. The size of their upgrades will determine whether they stay in category 2, or are promoted to category 1. These members also have the option of upgrading now, and being promoted directly to category 1.
Category 3. Members who have reverted to Free and have 2 or more pending cashouts. These members will be given 3rd priority. Once again, they will be paid for their first pending cashout (or first and second in some cases), and once again, they will need to upgrade again in order to be paid for their last pending. These members have the option of upgrading now, and immediately being promoted to category 2 or 1, or waiting until they receive their payment and then upgrading to a higher category.
Category 4. Upgraded members who have one pending cashout. These members will be given the 4th priority. If their second upgrade expires, and they revert to free, they will then be moved to category 3, or, if they remain upgraded and their second upgrade expires they will move to category 2. They also have the option of upgrading according to the 50/50 rule, and being promoted straight up to category 1.
Category 5. Free members, who have only upgraded once, and their upgrade has expired. As has always been the case, these members will not be paid, until they make a further upgrade.
Category 1 members will have the highest priority for the payouts. Of course I will try to be there as much as I can because this is one of the few sites that I have faith in. Also, the phony upgrade issues have been fixed too according to the admin and the payouts have already started after some days. Members are happy of course when they are paid and I can feel the mood is lightening up again.
