Wikinut will stop paying - for now... But will we stop writing? Hopefully not!

Wikinut like London Bridge

Much like the song "London Bridge" Wikinut seems to be "falling down".
However, i would like to point out that wikinut was never a way for writers to make a profit. People were always grumbling about how they were making more money on other sites and yet they were still publishing here on wikinut. The reason for that has ultimately been the camaraderie friendship of wikinut which let people feel comfortable to be creative, express themselves and comment on the articles of their friends.

I, for one, will keep writing

The interface of wikinut has always been one of the most conducive to making well designed articles and I know that the feedback I received for what I wrote was always a pleasure to read. I never wrote on wikinut for the money, The few dollars I made on wikinut would never compensate me for the hours of work I put into my articles. Nonetheless, the pleasure and satisfaction of having my work published and read was my motivation combined with my desire to share my creativity with others.
I, for one will certainly keep on writing - intermittently, as time permits.
And I for one, will keep on enjoying and reading the creativity of my fellow authors.
If you feel likewise - I guess that makes you a..

A question - if you are going to mention London Bridge, why not find an illustration of London Bridge instead of the next one down the River?

I do hope Wikinut retains the contributors, at least a good portion of them, even if it stops paying for now.

I gave my feedback that payment does motivate the contributors even if it does not amount to much.

I plan to continue at this site to test the true spirit of true camaraderie that transcends all artificial borders - siva

Yes, I earnt about 13 pounds in two years, for hundreds of hours of work, writing these articles, over 500 of them.

The thing that annoys me a little is that we were supposed to receive these ongoing royalties for life, whatever that means.

With a bigger article base, I was hoping to build a residual income dripping in constantly over the years to come with those pennies falling into my lap.

I will continue to write for Wikinut. I love my friends too much to leave. If you are looking for me I will be right here. I'll leave the light on for those that wander off.

The technical challenge is innermost for a site not making revenues to sustan the current dynamic set-up. The possibility of static option or read only would either burn the admin cum moderators load into 10 folds, without a moderator and just a free one time submissin without the aid of re-editing the grammatically cum.typo graphically challenge members like me will create eye sore for a non professional grade articles. I believe the site will try to be self sufficient first with our existing traffic without paying the members and will simply empower the moderators to better management tools and incentive to continue the task. Evolving to a free hosting is not a bad idea at all since our payment is considerably low to even pay the hours we spend or the effort we made ergo it would not be a real blow to cut it now as long our articles are around thats still a working model for the site since they can still accept ads by marketing the activities,with current 3k visitors daily and about 10k views (base on statscrop.com)we still have or eventually retains with a sustainable numbers..wikinut will still be relevant than those writing sites below us on world rankings. By the way in India wikinut still hold on top 10,000 sites.

I have not written any new article here for a long time, due to other commitments and a writer's block but i will continue to log on and read the brilliant articles as i wait for all blocks to clear from my head and path. I have been writing here for over 3 years but have not never been paid.

Saigon, All I'm suggesting is that you use a correct photo! That is Tower Bridge - not London Bridge! It is quite possible that the photo was taken by someone standing on London Bridge - I have taken one from there that looks very similar.

It doesn't matter to me. I like the friendships Ive formed. I never made much from my articles here. So it won't matter if they're paying or not.

Not so much about payment. Its the sincerity that counts. Are they gong to pay us the balance in our account? Many others simply wrapped up and vanished!

That's somethng we don't know yet until next month...but for them to tell now they are n paying anymore the 2.50 easy redeeming threshold hurt me even how immaterial seems the value of that petty cash I earned the last 11months (granted i was inactive half of the year)... Yay, Am just emotional i guess.

I plan to be around for awhile. If nothing else I'm building my platform, getting readers, and have a place for people (editors, publishers, book buying readers) to see my work before they buy. It also gives me an international audience.
by the way, can we link to our websites from here now?
