Default Does Suite101 still exist?

I just went to log in to my account and it does not seem to exist anymore. and when I click on some URL's that I have saved in my files, they do not go anywhere and I get an error.

Anyone know if Suite101 is dead?

If you go directly to their website, it says that they are re-launching. So I am not sure what that will hold for their future and for their former writers.

They purged about 50,000 articles earlier in the year, and accounts were moved over to a new community site. I needed a new log-in to get to that site but with their new launch, I am not sure how to request new login info right now.

I just had the same problem. They're re-launching soon.

I wonder why they're relaunching and what their new business model will be like?

I assume they are re-launching due to Google Panda and their rankings going down. However, I am also curious to know what their new business model will be like as well.

It's a completely different model. Suite 101 made the changes due to Panda/Penguin. They explained it in a forum on the site, but I don't understand it well enough (or recall it well enough) to explain it here. If you can get into the forums, I'm sure that you'll find the thread that explains it. I was following the entire saga, but stopped a few months ago.

Well, I basically just want to know if my articles are still going to exist there or not? A few of the articles I had linked to in other locations are starting to come up as broken links

I had 20 articles up there that were doing absolutely nothing. I wrote them early last year. I just got a payment from Suite for $5 yesterday (which was about all I had earned in a year's time) and today I went to check the site and it looks totally different.

Skcandles, in theory they should still exist but it sounds like articles not picked up for a channel will stop earning revenue. There is all sorts of discussion on the forum and a Suite facebook group about whether it is worth it to continue under the new terms of service and revenue model. Money earned by the site will be put into one pot and then doled out based upon how active and 'engaged' you are.

Your links probably don't work anymore because Suite recently stopped redirecting old URLs to the new URL format initiated earlier this year.
