Will a negative balance prevent articles from being written?
« on: April 07, 2013, 04:40:46 PM »
Hi Jonathan,

As I previously wrote, I placed an order after your system had given me a credit, not realizing that I was spending more than I had given.  It appears that the dust has settled on the money problem, and I now have a negative balance of a couple dollars.

I also have one article that was requested on 4/1/2013 that has not yet been written.  I was approved as a writer and see that there are no more articles pending from 4/1/2013, which made me wonder if my article is in limbo somewhere because of my negative balance.  I did submit a ticket about the article, but thought I'd ask this here, since I may not be the only person with a negative balance.

It's not because of that. There's about 75 articles left in the older, less flexible system that was in place before the one you signed up to. Yours is one of those 75, no doubt.

What were the keywords?

Ah, okay.  My keywords are "Treating stomatitis in cats".

Yeah, that one is in the last batch of the old system.

Any idea when the last batch will be added to the writing queue?

And, this just occurred to me.  I may be one of just a handful (if not the only one?) who has pending articles and is also approved as a writer.  Do you have anything in place to prevent people from writing their own articles with the purpose of rating them highly?

The last batch is being worked on separately by a large number of writers. Should be done soon.

As to your second question, no, there's nothing preventing that just yet.
