ah, so the system is down/having problems right now?

Yes. It's been freaking out on and off for the last few days.

It does get better as you get faster! So hang in there for a while.

As fo the bank account, you can now add your own bank info right on ChaCha without having to fax in a direct deposit form, it is instant and no having to wait or get another account with the other bank.

As fro how much you earn...for me i look at it like this:
I was making nothing before and now I have earned almost $700 since the middle of June. Sure it took a lot of time to do it, but just bits here and hter and some time during naps and at the beginning of the night. If I had not done it , I would have nothing. Also I have improved my search time SO MUCH since I began, I was frustrated in the beginning too, but it really does get better. After a while you begin to see the same things over and over and can answer really fast!
It is hard to find a job that a SAHM can do and choose her own hours, this may not be the best paying job but it pays, is legit and I can do it when I want!

ChaCha still has to verify your bank account info for that (and they're really backlogged), and they only do direct deposits once a month. So if someone were to sign up for that today, they probably wouldn't be paid until mid-October.

when I entered my info it was accepted right away, sure they may have verified it but it didn't take long and the once a month payment doesn't bother me, it zeroed out on the 15th and I had my money 4 days later. I do not like the other option because you have to pay $2 each time you cash out, that is a lot of queries to work for just to give it back, KWIM?

If you sign up for "pay me monthly", and you don't end up making $100 that month, do all of your earnings just disappear? Or does it just get rolled over to the next month and you just get nothing for the month that you earned less? I would be so ticked if I had earned, say, $75 but it was just taken away because I couldn't spend enough time doing searches.

Ok, I got the "Congratulations! You are invited to become a ChaCha Guide!" email.

It says part of the test is typing. Does that mean typing speed too? Or just accuracy? I can type well, but not fast.

I don't have time right now to read the whole thread, but I jusst got accepted as a guide (still need to do the test). But it says they are accepting text service guides. Does that mean I'll have to answer by text? I am confused & don't have time to look into it at the second.

i don't think I was able to be a cha cha guide because at the first bit of questions was asking about the company and they said scores didn't match then i got another cha information to sign in and do a test but when i logged in it said my cha cha acct was suspended why would that be ?

No that just means that you will answer the question that come in from text messages, you always work form your ow computer!

It would roll over into the next month. It's pretty easy to do $100 a month though.

My few tips frothe simulation test:
1. DO NOT use wikipedia or any of the answers.com or yahoo answers or wisegeek, also don't use a forum either.
2. print out some of the pages that were in the stuff to study, they may be very helpful!
3. i try not to use ChaCha as a source unless it is a direct quesion about chacha, otehr wise i look up a word form their query, like if someone says thanks or maybe which sweater should I wear on my date I would look up thank you, and sweater and use the first page I find.

I am definitely finding that out! I may just keep it in there and do Pay Me Now for when I need it though. Sort of a forced savings plan.
