    alright so i'm new to the forum; chose AC as a way to start and began a process of finding writers to outsource to (screw rewriting with DNS). it's been going fairly well, i'd say.. finding people that do quality content and have been submitting 10-15 articles a day on my account (hadn't expanded to more than one yet, was waiting for first round of payment)

    so i had some good writers and all.. but today i get this message: (this answers many peoples questions of how many can you submit a day; well- here's your answer)

    Thank you for this and your many other submissions to AC. Unfortunately, we neither pay for nor publish this and similar submissions for the following reasons:
    They were submitted in bulk. While AC does not limit the amount of content a Content Producer is allowed to submit for review, submitting a large bulk of content at one time:
    doesn?t provide enough of a time lapse for AC to determine how well-received your content may be on the World Wide Web, which in turn provides an inaccurate view of the market value of your individual submissions.
    Slows down the review process of your and other Content Producers? content.
    Inhibits your ability to take the time necessary to create the unique, searchable content AC encourages you to submit.
    AC does not publish content that repeats significant passages you already have published on the site. For example, the following paragraph appears to have been copied and pasted into a number of your submissions:

    ... they went on to quote passages that they claimed were copied or something (which weren't but whatever).

    anyways, i'm pissed. i wasn't about to rewrite content myself but outsourcing to many people over several AC accounts sounded like a good way to get some pocket cash to start implementing other BH methods that actually appealed to me. now i'm out a bunch of money that i spent trying to find people and such.

    haha if anyone wants to buy the articles i had my writers rewrite that they declined (they declined 100 at once, they didn't even look at them) PM me or something, i have a bunch and you can have them for like 1.25 each or something. (lame attempt at recouping my expenses, i know.. haha)

    to mods- sorry this wasn't posted to AC section but i figured more people would read it here and it seemed like people wanted to know some of this stuff.

    seamus, out

    How did you submit them? Using software or by hand?

    i used carlitosway(###?)'s AC submitter. i had it set to a big gap between each article though, like a few minutes between each. and like i said i submitted 10-15 a day; one day maybe i did 18 or something.

    they just declined a bulk amount of like 70 articles. it would have been a better use of my time to just withdraw money, wipe my ass with it, and flush it down the toilet. would have been less discouraging.

    yeah... and i get that. i didn't think 10-15 a day was so bad though. now i don't know whether i should just resubmit them more slowly; or start a new account.. or what..

    i'm not gonna spend more time on AC. but i'd like to get back some of that fricken money tho.

    Erm, a few minutes is not a very big gap. If you have the articles, I would personally suggest submitting them in by hand, hours apart.

    If you cant wait hours between each submission, then submit 2-3 back to back, and then wait.

    i'd be fine with waiting hours; but the thing is, it's not like they had a problem with that.. they didn't say i submitted them too close together; they just said that i had too many submissions. would have been nice to have a warning beforehand though, ya know? boo.

    Its because they base payment largely on PVs, how well your articles perform. if you submit a crapload and don't have PV stats to back it up then they don't know what to offer you. Try slowly and work your way up. I know many people that submit 15+ daily.
