    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.

      The MVEN stock has taken a huge beating lately.
      It is now below .30 per share..bordering on penny stock.
      This company has not done well to position itself as a leader and shaker.
      Hope things will turn around or else...

      Not mine; I'm actually down a few bucks a month from where I've been for the entire year since Dec. 2017!

    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.

      Novembers payment, from Sept. and Oct., was good but not great.  But Novembers earnings was the highest I've ever seen for a single month, and about 6 months worth just a couple of years ago.

    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.

    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.

      My thoughts exactly.

      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.

        Where has this thing about ad partners been said?  I haven't seen it and it seems like relevant information to have.

    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.
