In the recent weeks I have noticed that many, many writers here at Associated Content are complaining about how much they get paid for their articles. Why their page views do not match up to what they have tallied up themselves. And basically a whole bunch of other minor problems that a lot of people are making a huge deal over. Well AC don’t you worry, because this article is not a complaint but a huge “thank you” for everything you have done for all those who neglect to say it and abuse the wonderful privilege of having our articles, poems, and news published, promoted, and paid for. So, Associated Content, thank you so very much for everything you have done.
Now for the the little quirks I have with some AC writers. No complaints about AC at all :-)
Being that I have not been here for that long (February 14th) some people (I am not naming names) who have been here for a year or longer seem to think that they are the key content providers here, and seemed to like to boss those of us who are still new and those that are in-experienced around. They also seem to think that leaving obnoxious comments under numerous other writers articles something that they have to do, because they seem to think they are the “Quam” of the site. Well to all of you who think you are the “Quam” of Associate Content, let me remind you that you are not. There are many, many writers here that I appreciate, and all our fabulous and unique writers in their own way and you must remember that just because they do not write like you or others like you, that us “normal” writers enjoy their articles, and could care less who you think you are.
And last but not least the problems with the people in the forums. Not all of you, you who cause the problems know who you are and I do not need to name names. It is unfortunate that all writers on AC cannot conduct themselves in the adult manor that they should. Instead, they go around the AC Forums and look for newbies to bash and scare away. Leave them alone, honestly. Writer’s were once able to go the forums and speak or post what they wanted to, and now, these people get all over your case and their not even the monitors. Stop it. Just mind your own business and leave them alone. If they want to put a link in the section, Promote your AC Content, well then by god, let them. Isn’t that what it’s for after all?!
In closing, basically what I needed to say was said in the first paragraph.. Thank you Associated Content. And for the rest of the article, those of you who are writing snobs, leave those of us who are not alone.
And please feel free to leave me rude and obnoxious comments, I look forward to all of them…. :-)
