    July 6th is showing as a blank in my records. There was traffic. Don't know if others have the same issue.

        This thread has nothing to do with the earning thread that I post and mine was posted first before this one.  Thank you

      Just wanted to provide an update that Ad Program earnings through yesterday are all in and available in your Earnings Reports!

    Yep. I see steady ad revenue everyday, including Saturday, except that there's a zero for Friday. Yet traffic was steady that day.

    Clearly missing data, but stats no longer say pending for Friday and Saturday.

    D-U-H.  Why analyze something you can't fix yourself?  There's more people on the same subject--on a second thread!

    Yes I posted a question regarding this too.  Other hubbers said not to worry about it, it will be updated eventually.

      Sorry, sparkster.  You happen to be #3.  But since you admitted to being new, I cut you some slack.  Do yourself a favor and don't worry about things you can't control here.  You WILL get paid for your efforts, but ADM doesn't have to announce payment or being late with payments.  Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't.

        Actually, I consider it a matter of common courtesy for them to inform the people whose work is paying their wages when something goes wrong.

        If all independent hub authors were to take down their hubs and walk away, HP staff would have to look for other income if their personal hubs did not provide them with a living wage plus enough surplus to keep the site running so their hubs would be viewable.

        We are not HP employees, and, believe me, they need us far more than we need them.

          For what it's worth, the announcement was posted on both My Account and the Earnings Reports pages around 8:45am Pacific time. We have it in both places so that it's easy to spot. If it's helpful to sticky a thread at the top of the Ad Problem forums, we can do that as well from now on.

            I wouldn't worry too much about having an official announcement when HP ad earnings are late.

            We all know what the problem is (some advertiser a bit late on their returns), and I have no problem with threads being opened about it, or even multiple threads.

            It only takes a couple of posts to set worried minds at rest.

            I know HP is a business, but we are also a community of writers, and we can help each other without involving staff, though it helps when you do put up a delayed notice promptly.

    Bedbugasbscond, that's a true writer for you!  Always analyzing things to death.  Each time one is not paid on time (as they think they should be), they begin to panic.  Like they will never see this precious money that will be paying for the yacht, the kid's braces, and the air conditioning/heating unit that broke down last week.  If a writer is going to panic like that over damn pennies, get a life.  Or get a JOB to supplement the pennies.  Jeez. 

    "Gee, Arlene, some people do need the money."

    Oh, hell no.  Not to the point where I'm whining over damn pennies!

      Lol arlene! I am SOOO guilty of over analyzing things. I am trying to be more chillaxed... as my kids would call it. Thing is what they is, right? Now pat me on the head and tell me it will all be ok!

      Seriously though, out side of the earning things I am SOOOOO happy with my 2 months on hubpages! I love this site, this community and the positive impact it has on me! smile

    I don;t think Hubpages has every missed paying by the end of the next month.  Reporting is not the same as paying.

    That said people will always post threads about reporting delays.  If a person doesn't feel like replying to them, they don't have to.

    If the mods were a bit more active they could merge the threads.

    HP just posted the following notice on our earnings page...

    Earnings for July 6-8 are still pending. We will have the data updated shortly. Thanks for your patience!

    I agree, although I see there are now saying now on the stats page that there is a delay.

    It is OK for us old-timers to know that this sort of thing happens from time to time, and I think when it happens there should be threads about it here on the forums, if only to set the minds of newbies, and others who don't spend all their time here, at rest.

    Yet, most of us stay and are still hoping for the best.  What's up with that?  Is HP too familiar for us as writers so that we don't pack up and move to try our luck elsewhere?  Or is it the community that we are sticking to?

    Arlene, the problem was that this morning it didn't say "pending." It was showing on our dashboard as if it were finalized.

    When you've been on the web for 20 years, perhaps you'll discover that often, glitches don't get fixed unless somebody points out that there IS a glitch!

    This is a bug report forum, after all. Why mock people for reporting a bug?

    I find it very strange, Greekgeek, when one person reports some bug or whatever, everyone jumps on the bandwagon, and it's usually all about the Almighty Dollar.  There was a holiday, and all a person needs to do is wait for the holiday and the weekend to disappear.  Just like any running business that has to come back from a holiday and a weekend.  I'm glad I don't have that many years in when it comes to the web because of all the glitches and whatever crap it suffers from at the moment.  I spent 30+ years in the newspaper business, and what I am putting out here is my own opinion, and I am entitled to it.  Mockery?  Oh, aren't we touchy???
