All I can say is WOW! I did just read Ashley's post regarding the pay out and BOY after looking at my bank was very depressed :( I went from just about to the cashing out right back down under $1 :( Yes, under $1 - I know that it is not his fault and honestly don't understand the whole having to get the Google Ad thing (I am not technology savvy in any way), but I am going to try and stick it out and hope that most of my connections do to so that we can make this site just as grand as "the other one" emoticon :smile:

I will have to work harder here and not spend so much time doing my other surveys! I usually have like 5-6 tabs open at once to keep going back and forth to make every penny I can!

Hope you are all having a great day!

It happened to me, also. I just read where it happened to others... hopefully, it's somehow a good thing.

The site-wide exchange rate has dropped, so all of us are affected. It's not just some people. The reason it dropped is that AdSense is where the site got its advertising revenue. Ashley has other advertisers, but they don't pay as well. So that's why he had to drop the rate. BUT he's got a good site here and he's working hard to get Google to reconsider their decision. If they reinstate his account, that rate should go back up to where it was. Then all of us will gain back whatever we've lost.

It is a shame,, but hopefully only a temporary set-back.

It will take some time to get all the kinks worked out. We simply have to keep plugging away and building a new community in a way that has integrity.

I think things will pick back up soon. Hang in there!

This post sounds so optimistic--it's sad to see that it was your last one for a while. Hopefully you will come back and rejoin us--we're still here!

Things are picking up here, both in activity and new members. There's been a post from elitecodex indicating our earnings might begin to increase as soon as mid-October. It's still a great site here and would love to read more of what you have to share.

We haven't seen you around in a while, but I hope that's going to change! The site is getting a little busier, and there is going to be an increase in the exchange rate. This is a great time to come back to writing and interacting :)

I hope you'll consider coming back now. Things are really picking up.

It's too bad you didn't stick it out. Things are going much better here now.

What a same you decided to give up altogether after saying you were going to stick it out.

I've been exceptionally pleased with the amount of coins that I collect here. Plus I enjoy my time here.

I never understood the whole Google Ad thing. I am glad I didn't do that anymore. I do hope you come back here . It is very slow here, but with persistence, you can make a cash out and get paid.

That was so depressing. But right now, we're back.
