I was surprised to see find this site listed here. It is one of many that I have been with and been screwed by.
It started out great, there was a bunch of categories to write about even silly odd things and you could write as much as you wanted. You built up your list of people you read and ones that read you and these were sent by alerts or you could choose to go by your list.For me being in the states I could cash out every ten dollars and that was very simple, just hit the cash out button and verify the info and that was it. The next week the check would come and most weeks I got several checks.
Then they change the rules. Gave us levels and started us all at level 1 and you had to work your way up sort of like here with the dots.
They wanted only marketable ideas. In other words you figure out a way to improve a product or come up with an invention that they could get paid for. Really now, who is going to write for pennies and let them rake in marketable ideas? Most everyone on there did.
Okay I was making about a hundred dollars a week so figured I would stick with it as I wasn't making that much anywhere else. Now mind you I had to put in hours a day to make this.
Then they decide they are going to pay quarterly. Well okay no problem, more at once but no one ever received those checks. When I recently checked the site it said that I had cashed out and been paid but I didn't and wasn't and neither were the other members. The site now states that no further payments will be made.So why is the site there? Who knows. Surely they don't expect marketable ideas when they have no intention of paying anyone.
I had over 400 ideas on there and all but 100 plus have been pulled and no way for me to get them back.
If you haven't signed up don't bother. It is a waste of time. It was fun inventing things and the people were great and I made some good friends so that is a plus but I will never get my money or the pulled ideas.
I was assured over and over by personnal that I was in touch with all the time on the phone that they were not in financial difficulty and that I would be paid but that was just a lot of hot air.
Just another site looking to make some money from trusting people and paying them for awhile to keep them going when I feel the whole thing was a scam all along.
So many of these sites have "gone under" and I have spent much of my time working my butt off to never get anything out of it. I must say the sites I still write for I am leery of getting any compensation from. When you join these sites do it just for fun or to practice writing, don't count on any money and you won't be disappointed.
