    man i have had no luck with ac. my first 2 articles they bought but from then on it was down hill. they either didn't want them, told me to site sources or just plain called it copying.

    then the last batch i did they did the same but this time they put me on notice that i was coping to much or plagurism. yes i took the cooking recipes out of my local newspaper but i reworded everything but the receipe stuff. now they say every article i submit will be looked at even harder so for me its not worth it.

    good luck to all those that are making it and watch out. thanks for all the helpful info here but i guess i didn't use it wisely enough.

    What you described above happened to one of my accounts till i was actually told i will not be eligible to get upfront payment till i have submitted 15 unique articles, which will be paid performance only... I said they must be out of their minds and left them.

    Anyway i just created another account and the ride continues....

    Yes, the same thing happened to me, it's not worth the time or effort with AC anymore. They are rejecting articles, having stricter requirement while lowering the amount paid nowadays and banning accounts. Am moving to other stuff already.

    The last 2 days they also have been asking me to site more sources. I have A LOT of articles accepted so far and then this. Back to the college days of writing where all sources have to cited even if you wrote at the top of your head.

    In all honesty AC should have done a lot of this a long time ago. We just made their company better with all the blach hatting.

    same shit happened to me! wrote 2 articles recently, both rejected with a "cite your sources" comment, although i DID cite them! (and yes, i know how to cite, wrote shitloads of papers at my university)

    Sounds like they're probably receiving a bunch of sh*t articles from noob blackhatters who haven't got a clue. Not saying its anyone here but we all know there are tons of uber-noobs out there who ruin it for everyone by halfassing. I suspect there's so much to go through now that they probably have staff blitzing through them quickly and rejecting stuff after only a couple seconds glance whereas before they likely had more staff and/or less content to sift through.

    I think this is really interesting must have something to do with all the ebooks going around and other methods on how to fool ac i think they are putting the hammer down lol i think that a lot of people might give up on ac and find other ways to make money cause it is starting to get rough well thats my 2 cents

    Yeah AC pisses me off. Im gonna try one more time, but i had an account with them for like a year, lately they rejectd my articles, and then 2 of them sat in there and were never reviewed. Then i submitted a question, totally unrelated to those 2 articles. They never respond. So I go into my account and its banned. redic. poor service.
