honestly man, ive been at triond for a little over a week and ive made about 20$, ive written only like 12 articles about random shit thats probably not intelligent enough for a PhD Biomedical Scientist or an IT engineer, but yknow what? im 15 give me a break at my age its all about having fun and making a few bucks on the side yknow?, im just a kid and im really new to all this. A few thousand views on a stupid tutorial on an app i enjoy, really means alot to me man. its pathetic that these websites think that they filter out all the bullshit by adding an age restriction for the users. And no, i didnt bother to read the rules or code of conduct or the letter from the admins.. sorry, once again, im 15 why would i wanna waste my time reading that? i come here for help from you guys and all i get is "fuck you, your too young, your gonna fail as a writer, your a dumbass and you need to leave us adults alone.. bye"
Drew, shame you have decided to take my comment as a personal attack or a form of sarcasm, that is not it's intent.
As UW wrote below, the rules for age restrictions apply to Adsense and to the content generated here. So its in its best interest for HubPages, Google and us writers on this site, that we meet an age requirement. Doesn't matter that you or anyone else thinks that stinks, it is what it is.
With a little focus, you would most likely do much better than now with Triond. Your youth exudes enthusiasm, which is an awesome trait to have. So your young new to all this and I will ask.
Will you benefit from our experience? Or will you wing it on your own?
Take all the criticism you can get. If you cannot handle the criticism and allow it to make you a better writer, then stop now and go find something else to do. If you can handle it, show it not to us, but to yourself you can do it, no....matter....what. You will be a better seasoned and much better writer for it.
You wrote a stupid tutorial huh? I doubt that. Do you know how many adults would *love* to know how to use their phones and apps? They currently don't and you may not know that they don't know where to find that info. So that may be a real GOLDMINE for you, ya neva know.
Don't look at rules as a way to stop you, see them for what they are, a guide to help us focus where we need to get to on our writing journey.
You are 15, and have a number of years ahead of you. Your going to get to see the internet and be part of it in a way I can only imagine when I am old and decrepit.
If we never talk again, I do wish you good luck. No sarcasm, no malice, just truth.
its a shame that "You will also find that each attempt at a 'quick' buck is usually a spectacular failure." was misinterpreted as an insult..
if you look down at my little converstation with UW youll see that i told her that my parents were taking care of the payments, credit, ect.
youve only stated youself as a motivation, kind of like a "im gonna prove that asshole wrong someday" so id say that ive benifited from our experience yes.
i was raised to never take unnecessary bullshit, i asked for help, nobody gave me any useful advice like really? i asked this question like almost 4 hours ago and ever since then ive been defending myself.
i guess your right about that because its by far my most popular article basically handing the money to me.
i do follow the rules but ive always hated being told i cant do this and i cant do that all because im just too young for it. its not illegal (writing articles not accepting payments), its not gonna kill me, its not gonna hurt me or anyone else.. so why not?
my mother is an IT engineer/ specialist and software architect, haha im years ahead of my age with information on success and random things not many other people would know about, thats why i started this, i get to help people who need it, i give useful down to earth information thats easy to understand like my friend told me "I dumb down for my audience and double my dollars..."
i dont plan on returning to this site, id wish you luck aswell, but you seem to be doing alright alreadly ;P no sarcasm, no malice, just truth.
The age restriction has to do with Adsense...you also have to be 18 to earn from Adsense. It has nothing to do with maturity...although your last post would probably get you banned no matter what your age.
Lucky you earning $20 in one week at Triond, i'm lucky if i earn $2 a week like most people. I'd say stick with Triond if it is true.
i read a review on this site, it mostly spoke about its similarity to triond (with the whole pay per click thing), its easy user-friendly interface and concept, and what it stressed the most was that the site is used by professional writers, bloggers and journalists. I came to this site because 1 i thought i could get some really good pointers on what to write and how to write it, and 2 help make a little more money by adding my most popular articles here so there in multiple sources. What i wasnt told though, was that the site was filled with unsupportive, rude "professionals" Uninvited Writer.. whoever you are, i appreciate your mildly polite reply, i do plan on expaning my ideas and articles, ive found 2 other sites simlar to this and triond. Ive aranged with triond to accept my parents billing and credit information, they recieve it and they give the money to me, no big deal. at this point, if im gonna get accused of pluralism, be insulted and put down for requesting help, i dont plan on staying here so whoever wants to report the immature stereotypical over hyper 15 year old so he can get the fuck off your precious website.. go ahead. ive only been here for like 3 hours anyway.
you have got to be kidding me...... this is why im still defending myself because assholes like you need to understand, age doesnt matter if i can make hundreds of dollars by creating my own origional products and articles i should be able to follow through with it.
If you were a mature, civil person who just happened to be 15 I might be sympathetic. But... not so much. Instead you are just proving hubpage's point that the age limit saves us all a lot of trouble. Well done.
you wipe YOUR "elders" asses for a living.. just putting that out there, and your saying because im not okay with you talking shit to me because 1 your older than me, 2 your out of my reach literally and 3 because you are SO much more sucessful than i am.. you think you could simply hit me and id shut up?
well the reason tail tanning is not allowed anymore is because this generation no longer takes bullshit from the "elders" theyve just been proven to be angry fat bald losers who are pissed off because they cant get mr midnight to salute like he used to.. sorry randy i had to
now now the only one I see angry here is you and i will not discuss things about mr midnight as it is illegal for me to talk to a child about but things are wonderful on my end there buddy....LMAO More then a child as I dont have to sneak around finding places to hang at.....
"exadurating" = exaggerating, I assume? That's very creative and almost clever, if you know any Latin at all.
Seriously, you are just continuing to dig the hole deeper and deeper. Early on, in your first incarnation, there were a few points when people might have felt a bit of good-humored sympathy for you. You have squelched that very profoundly. Not that you can't still find a way to turn things around, but it definitely will take a huge dose of maturity that you haven't shown just yet, despite (or is that because of) your new persona.
If my child EVER behaved that way I would have to send him to a mental hospital. I would just know he had gone and lost his damn mind. Where the hell are this kids parents? Do other people just let their kids run wild on the internet with no supervision whatsoever?
LOL, get to know me... you wouldn't believe the s*** that comes out of my F*****g mouth (Btw, I self-starred-for what its worth) I don't take the Lord's name in vain but everything else is free game. However, if my KIDS tried it I would slap the lips right off their faces... figuratively of course. That includes giving them the "look", a lecture -my 12 year old once asked if I could just spank him rather than lecturing him-, grounding, and at least one trip out in public with no make up or bra, unshaven legs, and a shirt that says I'm "insert name of child"'s mom. (I actually have shirts that say each of their names, and they know I'll do it)
LOL, unless someone comes up with a bible verse that says specifically "Thou shall be able to start a fire by rubbing thine calves together" I will go ahead and shave them. LMAO, Randy dear are you trying to turn THIS into a religious thread as well? You really need to find a nice female rattler to occupy your...mind.
the kid is right... the age thing is bullshit... the comments are condescending..
where are people living, kids are drinking having sex using drugs leaving home... get with the real world people unless you live in some backwoods place where you will never be in touch with reality or belong one of those screwed up christian cults who think everyone is good, die, go to heaven and all that rubbish...
