It's a computer game of simulated humans. You pick their look, personality, interests and such. Then you can put them through college or send them out to start life. They can fall in love, have kids, go to work, have pets and hobbies. I don't play it very often anymore but did when I was younger. I mainly just like building houses on it.

Well I got a new piece published. It was a content call and it's only for performance pay, but that was okay with me as I retain the rights to it. I intend to find additional markets for it eventually. I think it's a good piece.

I've been trying to promote my content a bit. We'll see how that pays off.

I had two product reviews go up today, one on green bags and one on the Moby wrap. I'm going to try to write some more tonight, but right now I have to focus on promoting because I've been slacking...so it will be a few days before I can start on our site. I'm thinking Wednesday at the earliest.

I'm sorry I've been out of the loop. What site are you referring to Heather? I'm interested!

I'm making us a site. I have a domain registered already. I will be listing articles by category and putting up a biography page on each contributing writer. I am going to try to get us a forum as well, a real one, where we can talk about AC, share links galore, etc. But that is wayyy off. Right now it just points to my CP page, but I'll let you know when I start building.

I registered with a hosting service today and paid, but then they put my account on hold, refunded the money, and made me call...then I had to pay again, and I'm now waiting for my account to activate and for the refund to go through. I'm going to get started as soon as that happens.

Is anyone here good with web design, graphics, or anything? I'd love it if somene wanted to collaborate. I can handle it myself, but it's always nice to have some other input.

A question for you all...should every writer get a full page biography (self-written, of course), should I list everyone with a short paragraph and link to their page, or should I just put a list of writers with a link to their content pages at AC (and Suite 101) where they've written about themselves? Right now I am just doing a basic list of links, but I can do more if that would be cooler.

I think a page would be cool, but not if it's a ton of work for you. A paragraph with a link would work too. Whatever is easiest I say.

I could use some help from anyone in the know. I submitted an article on AC and it was declined because I didn't cite stats/sources. It's a mish mash piece of opinion/first person experience, and fact. They asked me to resubmit with sources or delete. I've not no interest in citing and resubmitting. Can I resubmit for performance pay only? If not, how do I delete the submission? Thanks in advance.

OK, how about anyone who wants a whole page, PM me with what you want to put on it, info, pix, links, whatever, and I'll get it up for you.

It is going to be a ton of work, but it's easy work that's just tedious and time-consuming. I've been wanting to do this for a while so don't feel bad. I'm not just doing it for the group.

You can join for help learning how to promote your work, but you cannot under any circumstances actually promote your work in the thread. Only in your signature, since you're an advertiser.

Ok, I decided everyone will get a link to their CP page, then everyone with 10+ articles chosen for the site will get their own subdomain with a page about them, as well as an index of their articles by category. These subdomains, however, will be the last thing to go up, so you'll have to wait a while for them. (For example, yourname.oursite.net)

Thanks I resubmitted for perfomance pay. I never knew how to delete an article before, thanks!

That sounds like a great plan.

K, page is up, and anyone who wants to see, just PM me. It's the basic layout and some other goodies for now; I'll add articles starting tomorrow evening, and I'm going to be prettying it up with more pictures soon, too.

I just joined and am just learning about Ac, but it looks like fun and even without the money, it's fun to spread information about your interests.

I want to read what you all are writing! If you want pm me your profile or links to your articles and I'll read them.

Subbing.

I haven't written for AC in a few months as I've been focusing on Suite and a few other ventures. Hoping to get back in to AC soon.

I put one up today just off the top of my head. It's funny how they just come to you sometimes isn't it?

I've been having motivation problems ever since DD has decided to stop napping. I get about 1/2 way through something and she needs me so I attend to her and never get back to what I was working on. *sigh* I have half-finished drafts all over the place.

I think you need to check with AC before you join AC, because I see that you are in Australia.

Lurking - Suite 101 accepts writers from all over the world, Batty. That's a possibility if AC doesn't work for you.

Hey everyone -- when did they move the payout for PPV up to $15? Or did I just not notice this?
