I just visited the site after 2 months gap and found that the site no more accepts articles from all country members. I think they are trying to bring out different versions of the site to different countries. So now they do not accept articles from all members. Has anyone been affected by this announcement? Does anyone have made a good amount and not yet requested the payout?

I have heard that Indians and people from Philipines are not allowed in india...I am not a member of Helium and I don't think that site is worth trying since they have an idiotic rating system....They are saying that they will be available for International member soon...hope they will be...till now try some more authentic sites like Triond..........

Though I'm not an active member at helium, one of my friends from Singapore had been very busy writing articles at the site..So I was just worried for many members like her. I will give a try at Triond.

Hi Smylin, I think Triond is far much better than Helium....at Helium the most difficult and amazing thing is their rating system...this is made to engaged reader at that site...Triond is impartial and the best thing about this is they will publish your post at appropriate sites not on same like helium....

I'm not an active member there. I just visit the site if I need to read some good articles. Other than that, I do not write any article there.

hi! i'm from the Philippines and like you, I went back to Helium after not writing there for about a month, and was disappointed that none of the previous 16 articles that I wrote for them will be paid. I am not holding my breath for the day when they will let international writers in again, so right now I am just focusing on my 9-5 work.

That is very bad. I think helium should have paid the members before changing the terms. BUt still let us hope for the best as it is a very reputed site.
