I got banned!

Merced, California
March 17, 2016 9:11pm CST
I signed up for persona paper yesterday i received my conformation email, i was pretty excited that they excepted me. Long story short i wrote my first article on there just to find out later i was banned. I guess my article was that bad that they didn't like it. I guess my writing skills are worse than i thought. Honestly i feel bummed out and a little discouraged because I wrote a page article on steroids in baseball. I did as best as i could, guess it wasn't good enough.

@davidalicea100 I think different sites have different policies about how much "foul" language they allow.

Persona paper is no longer a paying website. They are keeping the site active until their time runs out. I believe they paid through the month of May and then things are in the air. They are dealing with a lot of real life things and have made posts abut it so they aren't negligent admins, they are a husband and wife team who have a lot of personal stuff on their plates.

Dont be discouraged. It happens. I have had two articles rejected from another site so Im probably closed to getting banned myself. The clients at some of these sites give really vague or poor instructions. And then are really unhappy. Its like hello?! So maybe being banned will save you from the drama. Hope you can find a better site.

@davidalicea100 This is rather strange.They have stopped taking new members since January 2016.I do not know what happened.But I am sure you have not been banned because of something you wrote.It is just that they are not taking new members because the site is being shut down.

They banned you because they were closing down, they dont need new members for a site that is having uncurable stage 4 cancer.

There are sites that seems to have high expectations but not really worth your time.

Your story seems pretty odd. I was there and very active until they announced their impending closure.
