Knoji/Factoidz: Can You Tell me Your First-Hand and Recent Experiences

    I've spent the afternoon reading horrific tales about Knoji, formerly known as Factoidz. Most of these horror stories are a bit older. I really had high hopes for the site, but after reading those comments, now im on the fence. It's a shame.

    Has anyone had any positive experience with the site at all? Anyone who's published over 100 articles and has lived to tell the tale? Preferably, im looking for seasoned people with first-hand experience on the site, and newer perspectives if possible (2011-2012 maybe).

      I am not what you call "seasoned"on Factoidz but I can share my experience.  Factoitz has very poor support.  I emailed them several time because I was not getting paid because I was never able to save my paypal email.

      The forum has post a 100 years old.  When you post a question its lost never to be found again.

      The first article I wrote they lost my article.  I wrote a review and never got paid for it.

      If you want to remove your article you have to request that Factoidz removes your article.

      I have still yet to here from staff to remove my articles.

    Yeah I was happy at first with the site and thought that it may help me become a more recognized writer.  This is what happened to me, and I've been with them now for about 6 months now.  They have this milestone as to where if you write at least 10 articles without having at least one of your articles rejected then you get promoted to Staff Writer.  I have gotten all the way up to the 10th article at least 3 times, only to have the 10th one rejected and have to start all the way over from number one.  I stopped writing for them a few weeks ago, I make around 4.00 at month with the many articles that I have written, but not much.  And it kinds seems like the site is run by a baby.. I had this article waiting to get approved and I decided to complain about my 10th article being rejected and I'll be damn if they didn't hurry and reject the article that was waiting to get approved.  Thumbs down!!

    Unfortunately, it seems like most writers experience more negativity than positive outcomes. Sad sad sad, and here i was hoping it'd be like Associated Content back in the day, but better.

    That said, i still MAY give it a try at least to reach a few bucks per month, merely to supplement my income.

      Yeah, I submit an article or two per month just to keep active.  But every time I make it to the 10th article I get rejected.  It's so darn frustrating.
