I do not think it is a ‘secret’ that Something is Very Wrong here at Literacybase.
No one was paid for the month of May.
Although payments are expected on the Tenth, and although often one doesn’t receive it until the Twelfth, today is the Sixteenth.
As uncomfortable as that may be, the true terror is the utter absence of the Administrators, the Mods; in fact, absolutely no one has been able to get any contact with anyone in any position of ‘power’ at Literacy Base.
I began my attempts a week ago when a totally original article, and article that was checked with the plagiarism checker turned up NOTHING but the article I was checking.
That is, I had published the item here, I was told it was ‘plagiarised’ I copied and pasted the item into the plag. checker, and all it turned up was the article.
I used ‘contact’ I sent emails, I wrote in Forums.
I have received absolutely no contact at all from the Mods, the Admin, anyone save other users, like myself, who have made similar attempts.
I have logged on each day, often two or three or more times, searching for anyone to speak with.
Everyone I know, all my friends here, have done the same thing. And no one has gotten any response.
With the non payment of our revenue, with the silence, I have begun to feel that this site, as others before it, has died.
I have been on Wikinut, when the announcement that the site would no longer pay was made. The same with Blogjob. Hence, one is aware that the site as it was known no longer exists, and what has replaced it is a non paying entity.
I have logged onto Triond to find that it no longer exists.
This is the first I find myself on an ‘operational’ site which seems lost in some limbo where one can write and post as previous and where the automatic word counters operate, where the advisory that a featured image is required pop up as they did in April.
However, there is a very strong sense that Literacybase no longer actually exists at that at some near point one will log on to get an error message; some sort of advisory similar to:
After being up and running for almost 3 years now we regrettably need to inform you that we will be shutting Bubblews.com down. The climate for display advertising has drastically changed and made it impossible for us to sustain the business model and operations.
We want to thank everyone that was a part of this journey. We wish you all the very best.
