Unfairly rejected by postloop

October 31, 2012 7:50pm CST
A friend recommended postloop to me, she said it was an easy way to make some extra cash and the only requirement is very good English grammar. Now, I don't want to brag, but I've always been on top of my class at English, I recently passed an exam on academic level with perfect score and I've also been writing stories online for the past four years, had them edited by native speakers with a degree in English and I've NEVER been told that my grammar is less than good. But my application on postloop was rejected because of... yes, POOR GRAMMAR. No option of clarification, no option of pointing out the alleged horrible grammar mistakes I made. Nothing. Dead silence from Ryan, the admin. Has anyone else had this experience? Should I reevaluate my self-esteem in regards to my English skills? Or is there something seriously wrong with postloop's application evaluation process? Like maybe they're using some kind of English that only they speak fluently?

Yes, it may be. Because, i am also disapproved by postloop. You should be native english man and with fluent english writting skills. You can aquire these skills by practicing more in myLot. But, why don't you continue with myLot? I feel it is way better than Postloop.

Try to choose America/England next time. I think they are much more picky if you're not native.

I've never heard of postloop but I wouldn't let it upset me that it rejected me. It's just another website and there are plenty of them who would probably take you in as a member. You sound like your very proficient in English so it's their loss.

You shouldn't feel bad about being rejected by Postloop. They're quite arbitrary in their selection. None of the people except for one that I referred to Postloop got accepted. Most of the time they use the reason like yours; poor grammar but when I look at the posts that they've made, their grammar is quite okay. I think maybe Postloop is flooded with applications for new membership that they're just becoming more and more picky. I was lucky to have been accepted. But I can tell you that it's not as easy to participate there. The forums are very niche-specific and they're mostly from the gaming and technology niches which I'm not that familiar with so I don't have many forums that I can participate in. There used to be quite a number of general forums but now not as many. I think it's much more relaxing to participate on myLot. Even though the pay is higher at Postloop but the pressure and stress to always post grammatically acceptable posts can be quite stressful given that there's not many interesting topics that you can talk about.
