There are a number of us who belong to comparedby.us...my question is, is anyone else starting to think this place is a scam? They keep changing their policies so much that I don't think any of us are going to be paid....those of you who DO belong....have any of you been paid yet? First they changed the policy as far as "ranks" and how many reviews one could write in a month's time. For a beginner rank, which I am it's only ten a month. This policy was no doubt due to the cheaters and plagiarizers who were cranking out a zillion reviews a month that were mere copy/paste....Now for us legitimate writers this sucks since lets face it ten review limit is a small number. Anyway, minimum payment is $20.00 but now it's harder to reach that even in a month's time with the new rank policy and limitations. Anyway, like I said I'm beginning to think comparedby.us is a big scam--I nearly fell off my chair when I logged in just now....I should have had $17.00 accountable to me and I had ten reviews....when I got to my profile I found $0.00..like wtf? Seems they have changed their policies AGAIN...--I also had nothing showing up for my reviews ..like wtf happened to my reviews???..then I saw...They have to review each review and to do that you have to click to the link that says request an editorial review...bingo all my reviews were there...so checked the reviews so they can review them and pass them...what a crock though Anyway..do any of you others who write their have your own grumbles? Have you been paid yet for any of your work? Are you getting leary of being there?

I've never heard of this site and prolly wouldn't join it anyways being I've got way too much on my plate as it is and slowly canceling the ones that don't pay much or takes forever to reach payout. I only want to put my time and energy into the sites that can/will pay me every month.

I write a bit over there, but can't find all the things i want to write about, and I am basically new there and still not sure how it really works, but I have to say it is really hard there. You can't even rely on other people looking at your page, because of all the spamming that has went on there, so even page views are out. I'm not really counting on my Chickens on that site.

I'm not a member of any pay-to-post sites, other than this one. It's a shame, but it really sounds like they're being ruined by cheaters and scammers. All of the measures you meantioned sound like efforts to discourage or get rid of those types of members. It's a shame because it just ruins it for honest people who write stuff that's worth reading.
