Has anyone ever had any experience with this website? It appears to be a writing site, but the information is not real clear as far as payment, etc....I was just curious if anyone knew anything else about it before I look too far into it ! Thanks !

I've had no experience with it, but this is from the "Terms and Conditions" * TPI may publish the Published Content on the Site in any manner and form that it sees fit. * TPI may remove the Published Content from the Site at any time and for any reason. * TPI may edit the Published Content in any manner it sees fit. * TPI shall have the right, but not the obligation, to attribute the Published Content to you. In other words, they have the right to take your material, change it to say or mean anything they like and attribute it to you, or use your material without attributing it to you at all. The terms seem very strict, and there's no percentage listed, nothing about how they pay (Paypal? Check?), nothing about when they pay, etc. I'd just be very careful about it. Personally, I wouldn't take the time to write for them with such terms.

Good response, and as a life long writer/author I have real issues with WWW submitting and possible publishing. Without question a writer should not only have some reasonable means by which to express, but also the freedom to express HOW they wish. Obviously innappropriate content posted globally should be monitored, even edited. It may be a Public place but standards should be maintained. The greater issue, as you so well point out is retaining control over ones own work. That is hardly possible on the WWW. Thank you. Steven Wolf
