Re: Articles selling for $0.00

I had that happen to me too. It was an article that had already sold for usage a couple of times and it got me puzzled, but I totally forgot about it because I was too busy. Let us know if you hear back from C-C. ;)

Re: Numerals

Oh my! I just realized that the poor editor was right! There was a number to be changed. I guess I got confused because the comment about writing out small numbers came right after a note about my list numbers going missing. Totally my bad! :oops:

Numerals

Do you write out the numbers in list articles or use numerals? I've written quite a few lists so far, I've always used numerals, and the articles went through just fine. Now, one of the editors wants me to write out the numbers instead, and I'm going nuts over it because it doesn't feel right. I thi...

Re: Eric is moving on

I know I'm probably a bit too late for the farewell party, but I'll wish you good luck anyway! It's always sad to see the good ones go, but I hope it's for the best -for you, at least!

May the Force be with you! (Sorry, I kinda had to! :lol: )

Re: Request due date question

The same thing happens to me as well, but I'm in a different time zone, so I'm guessing that might be the answer. I assume that the site lists request deadlines in their time zone on the board, but they appear according to my selected time zone in the "My Projects" tab. It's only speculati...

Re: Offer offer offer... and no sales.

This is odd. I've had the complete opposite kind of experience with info these past few days. I got a single -not particularly low- offer which turned into a sale after a couple of days, followed by a short chat that got me a private request. I had read this thread before accepting the offer, so i d...

Re: How do we report CC income?

Funny thing, I've already asked three different accountants the same question in case I decide to make it a full-time occupation, and none of them has been able to give me a direct answer! They all said that online transactions are not really regulated in my country unless you have an online busines...

Re: Self-Promotion/Marketing, Pen Name, etc.

That's ridiculous!!! If anything, people seemed to like me more in my regular job because of my appearance. I specifically remember a painter in her late 50s coming in, wanting to buy a pair of "twins" (i.e. a pair of mismatching shoes), but hesitated because of what others would think of ...

Re: Edit Keywords?

I think I have changed/ added keywords on existing articles in the past, but I haven't had the chance to try out the new system yet. If that's the case, I think I'll need to be more careful with my submissions because I always tend to remember things at the very last moment. :roll:

Haha, Lysis, you know what I did when my former boss didn't like my violet hair, the spikes on my wristbands, and my awesome grey&purple checkered dress? I made a point of wearing it -along with tons of black eyeshadow and purple or black lipstick- EVERY SINGLE TIME I knew he'd be around!!! Of c...

Re: So How Are Sales?

Aaaahh... I miss writing for C-C and participating on the forums soooo freakin' much, but I barely have time to sleep these days! I still get the occasional sale from my existing catalog, which is always a nice surprise. From what I can recall, January and February were always slow for me, so I gues...

Re: Article sold

Detective work it is! I mean, you can see the buyer's nickname in your Sales list but, other than that, there's not much to go on with. The easiest way to check where your article has been published is to google phrases from the text within quotation marks. The results may not be what you'd expect; ...
