P.S. Hi I'm Debbi and this is my first post to WAHM!
i have also seen their post two weeks ago on freelancer. i have sent them an article that was reviewed after one day, and i had 10 dollars in my account. i have decided to try them some more, so i have sent them the second one. this one needed about 3 days to be corrected. during this time, i have tried to contact their customer service. it is awful. they respond once a day, and the guy there has practically no English knowledge. i decided to write some more. Last friday (13 July) i had 2 approved articles, and 3 in pending. one of the pending article stayed there for 5 days. however, at 21.00 my time (noon in US), 20 dollars were deposited in my paypal account. don't start rubbing your hands just yet. with a whole weekend at my disposal, so i decided to take the maximum allowed tasks (10, and to start writing seriously for those guys. Saturday morning, i had my first rejection. i must admit i have copied a picture from another site. they rejected my article because of this, but they didn't had the option to remove the picture. the mail sent to the support was useless, but i managed to submit the article without a picture. so, i had 3 articles written on friday evening, another 2 on saturday and another 2 on sunday. during that time, they managed to correct another 3 articles (Oh, i must not forget. one of the articles was rejected with no comments. i have sent another mail to their CS, but i have decided to submit the article again with a few minor corrections. the article was approved in 2 hours, but the mail is still not answered even today, after three days).
i managed to write another two articles today. when i came home, i entered the site for submission. to my surprise, the site doesn't allow the writers to take assignments anymore (although 500 + were available yesterday), and the submission engine is not working. i guess the man managed to sweep away the needed articles, and decided to disappear. or he is just a newcomer and he still doesn't know how to make his business functional. bottom line, today, July 19 19.10 PM my time, i have 50 possible dollars in my howtohint account, 6 articles in drafts which i can't submit, 2 articles waiting approval and i am waiting for friday night to see how this is going. my advice: be cautious. i am not saying this site is scam, but it surely has all the perquisites to be.
PS: please don't make fun of my English. I had a dispute on this forum one year ago about another resembling site, and the Senior members here decided i was lying just because i can't write as well as they do. I must admit, i was a little acid with them also, but what is gone, is gone. For the moment, my English as it is brings me 600 dollars a month for a part time job, and that is more than double of the minimum wage in my country.
