    When I started I get paid a low amount and I'm hoping for a bigger amount. I can't say how much it is but it's low compared to what others are making. I need more motivation to make videos and making more money will give more motivation.

    Has anyone ever received a raise from them or do I have to switch to a different network to gain more?

    Machinima used to do raises. They were losing money at that point so now everyone makes 2 bucks per 1k.

    I almost went with Machinima and glad I didn't. One question though, are they (or were they) paying $2 per thousand views (all views) OR were they paying $2 per thousand Monetisable views? Big difference there, anybody currently with Machinima that knows the answer to this?

    If you were a big partner you got $3 per 1000, monitisable or not but this was costing them money and this is why you saw some of their biggest guys move network (woodysgamertag, tmartn, wingsofredemption, pewdiepie)

    They are now on around 35% of the money they were before.

    I'm currently a Machinima Partner and Machinima Respawn director.

    They now only pay $2 bucks for every 1,000 every monetizable views! Used to be $2 for every 1,000 views. I'm now looking to do a change. What's best to move to? Fullscreen?

    Wow, $2 for every monetizable view is shit. I'm confident Machinima is brining in closer to $4 per 1,000 monetizable (if not more) and then only giving you $2. That's just horrible of them. You should go for a network that will only take a %. Like 10-15%. I believe the Curse Network is closer to this range. I know many Networks are currently taking 30% but that seems way too high for what they provide (many provide close to nothing).
