Personally, I still like it quite a bit. I'm heading on $10,000 earned on the site, and I've had quite a few articles sub-licensed as well as gotten a few custom assignments. It's probably not for everyone -- you do have to be active on the site to keep your earnings going, and pre-Panda it made a lot less than my Hubpages...post-Panda, Helium is on top for the earnings. There aren't all the upfront opportunities there used to be, but they do circulate other earnings opportunities through at various times. I do recommend it, but bear in mind that I'm a high-volume writer and post regularly, I have several badges on the site, and was featured in my channel throughout the duration of my participation in the channel manager program. Your experiences may vary.
