Ever since the Maven takeover, there has been an ongoing and increasing delay in earnings reports. Up to a week before we can see the most recent earnings.
Under HP, barring any outside glitches, we always had our reports up-to-date within a day or two.
This new trend is unsettling.
Our lives have ended as we know it.
Meanwhile, keep them earnings rollin. Rollin rollin rollin...
On my end, it's up and it's down. Overall, it is better. But, I want to see concrete evidence of the impact of Maven take over.
This has been my best earnings year I've ever had here, so whatever voodoo Maven be doin', they can keep on doin' it as far as I'm concerned.
I got paid more this November than ever before. This December's payout is looking like it will be in my top 3 payouts. I couldn't possibly be any happier with the Hubpages network than I am now.
Double, double toil and trouble
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble ...
Woe is me and the other peasants of HP
She lifts her chin and rolls her eyes ...
Exit Stage Left
I agree the updates are taking longer. But, they always get done and we always get paid. So I've stopped worrying.
War, kids killed in schools, fire, hurricanes, illegal immigration...
There are a lot of things to be concerned about in this life.
Stats being a few days late is definitely not one of them.
All well and good, but I am still struggling with the recent death of my husband and soulmate, so it is difficult to get by day by day; I'm not even watching the news at the moment. It's too depressing.
And dealing with additional petty annoyances, such as my post here, are not helping.
Before you judge, please realize you don't know the other person's entire story; in other words, don't judge a person by the chapter in their life you happened upon.
I know that these words do not help, but I am sorry for your loss.
I am so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine the pain you must be going through.
Late? So what, we still get paid on time right.
Compare CPMs this year vs last year. Higher CPMs is what Maven is supposed to bring to the table. I know my CPMs are through the roof and are the highest they've ever been. It doesn't make sense to compare the earnings because there are too many factors at play there - Google and their new updates for instance.
I think the week long delays are new and quite possibly indicative of the system not working so well and valid to comment on by anyone and especially a long time participant. I don't think we need to be *quite* so judgmental about that. It's not like every other thread on this forum is trying to cure cancer.
It has been said a few times by the employees at HP that with the increase in the number of ad partners that they bring into the fold (for the higher competition and hence higher CPM), it is necessary that they wait until they get reports from every of the new partners before they can show us our tentative income.
I saw an update to my stats today, hope yours is similar, and that this chapter of your life comes to a more comforting conclusion. Sending best wishes for an encouraging upturn.
I am sorry for your loss as well. Please feel free to communicate. You have a right to be concern about the HP's changes and inconsistencies. I have never seen a post of yours that wasn't valid. I don't watch the news either : )
I am sorry for your loss too. It must be tough. My mother just lost her husband and all she's trying to do is get through the days right now. It can be a struggle.
In the overall scheme of things, late stats are nothing to be concerned about. I would say that people are trying to reassure, not judge you.

Can someone answer for me how Maven is benefiting us as writers. I have noticed a slight but no significant upswing in page views. Also if we need to update old articles instead of writing new ones, dos this not indicate that we are jumping through hoops for google? Please give your...

Will they still be allowed to continue writing for the niche sites or will this site be diluted as our best writers and their work leave for a better deal?

I guess we all write for Maven now, but is there an advantage in writing for an official Maven channel over Hubpages and their network sites? How does all that fit in the bigger ecosystem. Should writers be actively trying to graduate to Maven, or is Hubpages complimentary? Same thing, different...

There are threads in the forum about earning reports being late. Some are complacent about it for whatever reasons. I am bringing it up again, calling a spade a spade and saying it is not professional. It lacks teamwork and empathy from Maven. You'd think with Maven on board now the report of...

What is Maven, and why is it redirecting me? This is getting REALLY annoying. I try to log into the earnings page, and when I click on BALANCE HISTORY, I get the secret security question. When I answer it, it takes me to MAVEN...?... WHY? I don't understand why it keeps taking me there. I don't...
