kharrison, Ineedarticles is a marketplace. If a person wants to buy at a price and another wants to sell then everything is fine. There needs to be no discussion about price or quality and whether price is high enough because the market manages those issues.

What Jon seems to be aiming for is a relatively transparent market where price is not artificially distorted. As a result people are earning money they were not getting a month ago and others are getting articles that they were not getting a month ago.

None of the writers are enslaved, they write for me and others because doing so is the most effective use of their time. I'd better that many writers in the system are learning useful skills too, and and that ain't a bad thing.

The marketplace will shift as good writers get better offers and it either impacts the article service, or they move on to more profitable projects.

"Don't identify and move out the better writers" -  ? Maybe people should be able to buy a Mercedes for the same price as a Chevy.

No, the marketplace does not shift, any more than your local mall does not move up or down the road each week as prices change in the shops. ;)

It is likely that some people will graduate to other ways to earn money and, just as people arrived at Ineedarticles to earn some money, more will come. That there are people working on writing my articles right now in a venue that did not exist a month ago tells us that a need is being met for both  both writers and buyers.

I have seen other services who compromised on their principals, essentially giving in to writers who, of course, ALWAYS want more money for less work. In each case the service loses clients because the prices for acceptable content rise too high and the residue is of too low quality.

The solution is simple for any buyer or seller. ;) if the price is not right then go elsewhere. That is normal, expected and the way of the world, we all do the same each and every day.
