Paid2youtube stinks! I quit! (Vent)

It seemed good at first, 7 or more videos per day and the comments once in a while, plus you didn't have to stay in the video's for too long, but they changed, today I was suprised to see a "comment" for 10 cents posted, I watched the video but could not comment on it because it was not a youtube video, it was one of those "megavideo" things, I tried to regester with mega and the regestration was accepted but it still would not let me do the comment! So I got out and said the heck with it it's not worth the ten cents! So I went over to the surf videos area and there is just one video to view, I start viewing and noticed they added a (get this) 60 second timer! So I think thats the last time I will be visiting that site, Im not about to sit around for 60 seconds for one single video and get paid a penny. I already took their banner out of my profile! What a scam & waste of time!

I am a member of that site and reading through your post is enough to influence me to abandon the site. I have not been there and do not know what is their latest tactics. I don't waste my time on sites that keep changing their rules.

It's not my intention to influence anyone not to join or to quit, it's just how I feel.

I just joined this site and am into it for only $0.35 so far. I don't mind that there is a timer but 60 seconds is a tad bit long for a 1 cent video. I've also never seen any comment offers. I don't know how long I'll continue to "try out" this site if I continue to see negative feedback. Only time will tell.

Yes Bellerophon, how sad but this is indeed true...I became a member of paid2youtube just 3 weeks ago and my earning was onle $1.07...yes this is quite low...plus I also had the same experience, having to view only 1 video per day which is a total drag. They used to post 4-5 videos for me to view but lately its getting so few...i don't know why...plus also I can't make a comment either on the videos they requested me to comment on...maybe they are indeed a scam. The worst part of this is, the minimum pay out is too much $10...i don't think I can earn that much in just a month. This is too depressing...wasted time, wasted money.

I was also planning to join this site after hearing that they do pay and it quite easy to join. It's a good thing you posted this and you informed us about their new policies. Thank you.

Once, when this site first appeared. They not included a forum on they menu. When they know one website categories that can be said a potentially a scam, it not does have a web forum. Then they make immediately a forum. this looks unprofessional, and they forget that another characteristic is that web is not a professional, would be suspected scam. And we proved it today. I totaly agree with you.
