damn! well i predicted it a week or so ago, they are closing the site in favor of their new site...called MakeAStar..which is apparantly going to be something like American Idol except on the internet, and ppl vote for the winners. however i cant find anything that says voters make money too. here is what they posted... "[i]Dear Sizzle Fizzle member, On December 31st, we will be closing the SizzleFizzle website in order to focus our efforts on the launch of our new site www.MakeAStar.com. We are highly enthusiastic about the future of www.MakeAStar.com, a worldwide singing and talent competition that combines the excitement of American Idol with the internet accessibility of YouTube. We encourage you and your friends to check it out and, if you can sing, enter the competition! Make A Star will also be airing a television show in conjunction with the website airing on U.S. national television network FUSE, Saturday mornings at 10:30 AM beginning December 6th. Sizzle Fizzle may well return sometime in 2009, so please stay tuned for further exciting developments. As always, all active members of SizzleFizzle who reach the $15 threshold in their SizzleFizzle account will be able to withdraw their funds until January 7, 2009. We want to thank you for being an active member of our site. Please accept our thanks and gratitude for all your contributions and look forward to seeing you join in the fun at www.MakeAStar.com! Sincere regards, The Sizzle Fizzle Team"[/i] this is very upsetting to me, since ive been able to earn an average of $20 a month from them and have been getting paid every month! aagh! im going to have to try and find another site (hopefully somewhat like this one) where i can make up that $20! anybody have any suggestions (please no ptrs, get rich quick, hyip, etc etc.) please only sites that are at least SOMEWHAT like sizzlefizzle! it would be GREATLY appreciated! to any sizzle members that havent checked the site for a bit and have some money earned CHECK IT NOW AND TRY TO MAKE PAYOUT SO YOU DONT LOSE EVERYTHING!

Wow, thanks for the info. I've been a member of Sizzle Fizzle for a long time, but haven't quite reached payout...I hope I can manage to reach $15 by January 7th. It was a unique site that I enjoyed playing around with even though it was never as lucrative for me as it was for you, so I'm disappointed to hear that it is closing down. Unfortunately, I can't think of any site even remotely similar to Sizzle Fizzle to guide you to...it was one of a kind.
