I've been writing for BHW members for years. I was hired to write a construction manual by the user: "damnit" http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/198611-damnit.html I contacted him through this thread http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/hire-freelancer/726471-need-experienced-writer.html for binary options articles and he instead hired me to write the manual over skype He served as the middle man. I wasn't able to talk to the client directly to find out the full details of what he was looking for. This led to a lot of misunderstandings. the client was unhappy at times due to this. It was completely out of my control as I could only go by what user Damnit gave to me. I was given a very brief outline and asked to write in detail about those general topics. After I submitted the frst draft, I was sometimes asked to write more on specific topics or add in new topics that were not mentioned before. Other times I was told they will not be using large sections of the text. Again, I didn't have a lot to go on as far as what the client wanted since I was not able to ask them directly. He did pay for the edits so I was okay with it. For the last two sections, I was asked by user Damnit to rewrite specific pages in this manual http://sanbruno.ca.gov/comdev_images/2011_residentialhandbook.pdf I did exactly that. He and the client were happy with the first section I rewrote (7 pages) and paid me $42. We did most of our communication over Skype. This was out brief email exchange after he removed me as a contact over Skype earlier today. If I had known not being paid for work that I did was a possibility I would have never began writing for him. The Skype chat log is lengthy. It is mostly us talking about the work needed. I tried to take out the fluff and work stuff. I can post the full logs if needed. Mods, please let me know.
