Stuck in the processing loop

I know I've been rambling on about associated content a lot recently but as it's pretty much all I'm doing at the moment there isn't really anything else for me to talk about. Anyways, I have 5 articles that have been accepted, I've been paid for but still show as processing. I have 4 more articles accepted and published since those....is anyone else having the same problem and have you noticed that the turnaround time has really slowed down again. I was getting accepted, paid and publised with 2 days a couple of short weeks ago.

Hi there! I've had a couple reviews get stuck in processing mode. If it is over 5 days, I would email them and let them know. I've done this several times and poof...the articles go up. Good luck!

Wow inked, sorry to hear that you are having issues with payment. You (and the other writers) deserve better. Seems to be a problem with many companies. I spent a week early in the summer (May) traveling to a nearby city to teach a course that prepares nurses to take the national licensing exam. I taught this course for a well-known national company. I was paid in a timely manner for the hours of teaching. Yesterday, after NUMEROUS emails and phone calls, I FINALLY received my milage check for gas!

thats the weird thing here...they paid me as normal but haven't published 5 articles yet. I've had a few since then that I've been paid for and had published....very strange

I noticed over the weekend that the actual publishing was taking longer than expected. I had two articles accepted on Thursday, paid on Friday, and not published till Sunday evening. I suspect that a lot of the CMs don't work on the weekends, which is part of the slowdown. I have heard in the past that if you have articles that seem to be "stuck," you can send a message to admin (at) associatedcontent (dot) com, and they should be able to get them unstuck.
