    I've been wondering about that as well, but so far, nothing.  I guess they're still "working" on it.

    As was stated by HubPages staff in previous threads, the negotiations are in progress and these kinds of things take months. While the negotiations are in progress they are not allowed to discuss it. Don't take my word for it--go search the forums and read their replies for yourselves. This is not at all uncommon in situations such as these.

    I would not be surprised if the negotiations last at least six more months as I have done a lot of negotiating for my (very small) business and even the simplest items upon which everyone agrees a hundred per cent can take two months to finalize. This is a far more complex issue and I cannot imagine that the lawyers could even get the contracts written in less than four months (since I am friends with tons of lawyers), even if everyone agrees on everything from the outset. The diligent, good lawyers take their time and do thorough research into case law to determine what is best for their clients, and then the contracts are proofed and vetted (as even a misplaced comma can cost a company millions of dollars), and then have to be approved by the client.

    I know that it's hard to have faith in most companies these days, but my own experience with HubPages has been very positive, and I believe the powers that be are working hard behind the scenes on behalf of all of us. Not everyone in the world can be unethical, after all.

      You're absolutely right - HubPages has always come through, even after so many have given up hope.  I have a lot of faith in HP, which is why I'm still here..

      ...but still, an occasional, "Yup, we're still workin' on it!" would be nice, from time to time.

        They might be prohibited from even saying that they are working on it. Plenty of companies don't want the fact that they are in negotiations with someone broadcast. Any more official confirmation may send the negotiations down the drain, and we don't want that.
