Thanks mmface, that did the trick. Filled out a pollfish survey and got 75 silver, now what next? It shows me a bunch of things to "Earn Silver". Stuff like playing games I think? Some of them need me to download games. Is it safe to download them? And do the points listed refer to the amount of Silver I can win? Thanks for your help folks, don't know what I'd do without this forum.
(I can't believe I downloaded the CN app! Don't know what got into me! I guess reading about people buying all those phones did it)
ETA - Ah, and how do I play those match-number and split-pot games?
Swipe to the right and you should get ads that credit silver. Unfortunately it is a fairly bad time right now for ads. Just missed a good month last month. Some people are seeing good 15 silver ads and others are not so depending on your location you may be lucky or not.
Split game - first 20 ads you watch after 8pm eastern every day draws a number. These are dished out in order so the first person to swipe at 8pm gets number 1, then the next number 2 etc. Then at 8pm the next day a winning number is drawn and if you get it then you win the pot. Post about your win on social media (here is fine) and email support and they will credit your prize.
After the first 20 then you play match pot. There is a board of numbers that everyone gets. Every time you watch an ad you draw a number for the match pot game. If you match one it lights up gold. Fill the board with all gold numbers before anyone else and you win the pot. Then a new game starts right away.
I wouldn't trust everything on the game/app list but many are okay. I mean you know things like hulu are not going to load malware on your phone. They just link to the google play store to download. Yes the points shown is what silver you earn. I would be careful with anything asking for credit cards or social security numbers etc. Use something like privacy.com for offers requiring a credit card.
Give it some time - you figure out what is best to do after some practice.
