Has anyone tried this writing site or know anything positive or negative about it? I just read their terms and it seems as if the writer keeps their copyright to material submitted, but the site has the right to edit and distribute as they like.
It requires a paid membership which can be offset by contests offered monthly or by doing reviews. The good news is that they seem to like stories or chapters of a story and even poetry. I see they have a HubPages profile and yet only one hub which seems to be an advert for their site.
I'm curious. I'd like to know more about them before joining.
Here's a comparison between FanStory (which users have to pay for) and HubPages (which is free), as compared on Quantcast for the dates of Oct 3 - Nov 3, 2013:
FS unique visits = 1,588
HP unique visits = 28,249,782
FS pageviews = 34,391
HP pageviews = 51,544,504
Why pay to post your content on a site that has almost no traffic and readership? (Also note that FanStory is about six years older than HubPages too)
A very convincing argument in favour of Hubpages!
Hello Ms. Relache
Those rankings certainly tell a tale as to their effectiveness. Thank you very much. I will not be exploring them further. It seemed like a good opportunity for a brief moment. Their ad came up when I was on Facebook this morning.
Thanks so much for saving me the time, money and effort there.

As per the advice of many Hubbers I’ve tried to sign up on Shetoldme, but can’t seem to find their sign up button / page anywhere. A while ago I saw another Hubber comment on experiencing the same problem. Does...

I got a wild hair, and went to see what the latest missive from Arvind Dixit regarding the current state of affairs was, and discovered that he is no longer on the site either. Seems like 2 months since he posted...
