Re: How do You Sell Usage Rights?

Constant Content no longer allows writers to sell content for unique or usage rights (full rights only). The only content available for sale for unique/usage rights is old content created when unique/usage rights were allowed.

Re: Numbered paragraphs

Depends which editor you get. I've had one editor insist I put numbers on my listicles and another editor tell me not to use - for bullet points, but to use · instead. You can check the extended writer guidelines (m) to see if there are any specific guidelines requiring you to number your points. If...

Re: SEO Houston Pros Steals Content

Re: Account showing negative balance

There was an email sent out to all writers to let them know that we were addressing it. I had the same issue and assumed it was a glitch; I was going to email support today but then saw it had been resolved. However despite "all writers" being sent an email I didn't get one. On my email p...
