Y/CN! Payments Postponed TWO WEEKS for October


Just in case you all didn't get the email, Yahoo! Contributor Network is going to be delayed paying performance bonuses this week. They were supposed to pay on Wednesday, but now they are saying they won't pay until the 23rd of October.

Apparently, there was a page view reporting issue and they are needing to rerun and verify the reports. They believe they will underpay if they did it now. Which is probably true, since I'm about $50 less than my usual payment status this month. Hopefully the delay will result in larger payments for everyone.

But regardless, check your Y!/CN inbox on the site and the banner above your account there for more information. I'm sure they've posted in their forums too.





Love and stuff,
Michy

Yup I saw this too. I feel for the folks who expected/depended upon the money.

So last month they send out double checks and this month there are concerns about incorrect page views.

I didn't get a double check last month! :p


And yah... this really sucks. With other things vanishing and old residuals from content mills dwindling down to nothing, this payment was kinda part of my financial plan each month.

Well, they finally paid, but it was at least $50 bucks less than what I'm used to getting. It was 30 bucks less than I'm getting this month and 60 bucks less than I got the month prior--so I highly doubt the numbers were even close to accurate.

I'm at this point where I figure, What can you do? I mean, seriously, they won't reveal anything about how they figure the numbers, they deny there's a problem... unless we're willing to file a lawsuit--and I'm just not--what else is there to do?

I'm tired of the content sites... I just... am.

I think my last payment was under $1

I'm still making about 150 per month or so... that's enough to pay attention to it still.

Rissa, my dear, I'll buy you a twelve-pack!
