I saw a message on another forum from someone with a 4.0 saying they were put in WEP, but they also hadn't written for DS for a few months, so I don't know if inactivity is playing a role. I have a 3.7 and have not been put in WEP, but I also started in late March/early April, so I have technically been through the WEP this year already when I started and that might make a difference.

So I just got my first article back from the three. The edit requests are ridiculous. There's no way I can fulfill it. Impossible. I guess I'm parting ways with DMS. So scary because I depended on it.

My problem with DM is that they should have taken this into consideration before they hired new writers. If writers didn't average out to 4.0 or whatever number that they are looking for, then they shouldn't have been hired to begin with. That's why I like WG. At least they give good feedback and several test batches before you are considered "hired".

I know this question wasn't directed towards me, but I just want to say that I only got to write one of the three articles before they fired me. And the ironic thing is, the article I did write got approved. So what gives?

No one can make any sense out of the latest DS fiasco. Very sorry this happened.

Default I received an email...

I received an email stating that I was placed in the program. I was ecstatic and speedily finished my articles only to find that they sent me another email denouncing it was a technical error.

Just FYI everyone...I'm not in the program but have read some of the posts on the DS forum. Several people have reported making it through the program and being restored to 10 articles at a time. Take it for what it's worth; it doesn't indicate how many people are making it through, but it does mean some are. Good luck everyone.

Huh? Or are you being sarcastic? I'm confused.
