    Screw them for what? Because you don't understand you need to post something of value? Don't kid yourself thinking you're going to post half-assed garbage and expect a paypal payment in your e-mail. Go sit your ass down and write a proper article. I get by without citations.

    The way you are barking like you are owner of AC or something. Like I stated in my OP I used a method which I came across on this forum. Instead of trying to help you choose to waste your time and make negative comments. If you didn't feel like helping you could have simply hit the back button and exited the post. Thanks and have a great day.

    Submit quality content, Search AC for topics and when you find something that does not get a lot of hits, find an article about it and rewrite it.

    So, resubmit it with the citations. I got my first rejection for lack of sources last week. I just put down a couple that I had used, sent it back at 'em, and after sitting on it for a week they finally accepted.

    Usually I don't have a couple of sources (let alone citeable ones), but they picked the wrong article to mess with. I had gotten curious about something, so I looked up a relevant fact that wasn't in the main article. Presto, 2 sources.

    Just feed new sources :/ Whats the big deal? They are obviously not going to pay you for something they don't like.

    Adhere to their terms, use proper citations and they'll pay you!

    The tone in aмillionaírе's post was a little harsh but what he said is true. As many people know here, AC has very low standards when it comes to article submission. You will know this if you try other sites like CC, Daily articles etc. Also, you just don't pick a method you came across and blindly follow it to throw 2 articles and expect to get money from it. Think and tweak it to see how it works for you. There are many people here who think they are spamming AC with garbage and are making good money out of it. If you are unable to do even that then you haven't taken even a little time to figure out how it works. First take your time to read the forums here and their faqs.

    You were saying he is barking, and what were you doing when you wanted to 'screw AC' because you did not understand it properly. what a joke.

    His tone was not harsh at all. The guy submits 2 articles and has a freaking breakdown because he didn't get what he wanted. Are you kidding me? And then has the nerve to come crying about it here? OP, you submitted 2 articles...that's it. 2 freaking articles! Excellent example of determination and perseverance. I hope I never get caught in a foxhole w/ you.
