I am 100% for juries, checked willing, but NEVER get on a jury, can you help me

with my chrome settings maybe?

If it is a "popup", maybe I am doing something wrong. I have them not blocked that I know of, and I have ad blocker which is set to green or "disabled" for DU.

I am a Star member, etc. Not once have I been called, I am on here many hours a day.

1. You need to be a member for one year in order to serve on juries.

After the disastrous primaries last year, we tightened the requirements to serve on juries so you need to be a member for a year.

2. Check your settings again

Make sure the "Willingness to serve on Juries" has Willing highlighted in yellow.

3. I get called on about once a week but

sometimes a month or two will go by without a summons. I have no idea what criteria are used for jury selection. Maybe my low post count means I piss off fewer people. Sorry i can't be more helpful.

4. I'd be interested in knowing what the criteria is myself

I seem to serve on them fairly often, too often. People need to calm down with the alerting.

7. The admin answered me that we have to be members for one year, I have not been yet

but this would not apply to you as I see you have been here longer.

Make sure you are checked "willing" in your "my account"

5. You must keep reasonable hours.

If you kept the hours I do and were still online at 4 AM EDT, you'd get on plenty of juries. In prime time, your chances are simply less because more people are here.

The alerts get really stupid in the wee hours, I'd have to warn you about that one if you ever start working nights and goof off on DU.
