    Hello,

    I submitted two offer for AC in order to test them, one has been rejected and it's ok, the other, they are offering me 2.54$ for upfront and I accpeted but i read it:

    *******************************************************
    FEEDBACK
    $2.54 - - Welcome to AC! Soon after receiving this email you will be published. While we highly value your contribution to our site, this content is not in-depth enough to give the reader a complete overview and therefore does not qualify for a higher upfront payment. We encourage you to submit content that provides more insight on the topic at hand. Thank you for submitting and we look forward to seeing more content from you in the near future. -
    ********************************************************

    Cite your sources.

    Here are some examples:

    a) In a new study published in the journal Epidemiologic Reviews, scientists find that the obesity level in the United States continues to climb. At this rate, by the year 2015, 75% of American adults will be overweight and 41% will be obese.

    b) The Pennsylvania Game Commission reports that in 2006, of the nearly 140,000 licensed bear hunters, 3,122 bears were harvested and taken to check stations.

    c) According to Computer Economics, only 1.8% of corporate revenues will be used to fund IT expenses this year in North America.

    In addition, include a list of sources at the end of your content using this format:

    Author/Artist - name(s) of the person who created or wrote the piece

    Page Title - the headline or title that appears on your browser window; this title should be hyperlinked to the exact web address of your source

    Site Title - the name of the site or blog

    Examples:

    Mike Street, "Tips for Your Web Video" Associated Content.

    Microsoft, "Microsoft Earnings Climb 25 Percent", PR News Wire

    "Bush Announces Health Care Initiative", The White House

    University of Colorado, "Smart Plants Call Cell Phones when They Need Watering", Wilderness Society
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We encourage you to edit this content and resubmit for Upfront Payment consideration.

    Hi,

    I think they are offering you the opportunity to resubmit your content once you have followed there tips above.

    IF NOT then:

    It looks like you will recieve the $2.54, however they are giving you tips (pre-empting you) to make sure you a) don't ask why you got such a small amount and b) they are making sure your next article is more indepth and qualifies for more next time.

    Just follow those guidelines for your next article and you should be fine

    Yes I really think you are right!
    I confirmed the 2.54$ amount and now is confirmed status and pending.

    If I have an article I am forced to write the source? what if I don't know?
    And: what software can I use as a MASS ARTICLE SUBMITTER?

    Thanks

    I damn well don't want to be hijacking a thread but (I never use them with mine anyways, and even if i did, i'd probably make them up.) Biffo , your giving money away.

    Site your sources, it takes a minute to use big G with your your keyword and grab 2 links to add to the bottom of your article.

    I believe Carl's software is free. About the sources, I agree with you bactboats.
