Something needs to be done about the "View your payments" page. Otherwise, people will be really confused about it.

View your payments page gives a wrong impression

I am not a great one with topics or writing either. But I can spend some time reading. I like reading, especially people who have excellent command over English and are articulate in expressing their views.

So...I was reading and adding a few of my comments, as if they matter, but adding nevertheless.

And my earnings seemed to dwindle!!!

I was surprised...may be something I did wrong that day.

So the following day, again the earnings were south bound.

Checked for articles that could explain why it is happening.

Then third day, still down further.

I decided site does not like happens. I most certainly cant give you a content as engrossing and as well written by a native English speaker, and my primary education was in Hindi medium, so I am at a disadvantage as far as grammar and many things go.

May be the site has some grammar standards, or content standards...

Then I realized...what a fool I have been. The site only totals up the amounts displayed on the page.

Now, I think that is terrible, don't you think? People would be sent packing by the site...almost made to think you have no business to be here that is why your amounts are nosediving...that is of course, if the case is similar to mine.

Net net...Wikinut needs to look into the payments statistics page and display the total amount earned so far, less any payments made, otherwise people like me would be slightly disillusioned.

Your take.


Payment, Statistics, Wikinut

There are a few different views on the stats page. I am not sure which view you were on, but you can view totals, totals per day, and daily totals per article. It does appear confusing, esp. at first. May I also just say until you mentioned it, I had no idea I was reading a native hindi speaker's English and not a native English speaker. Well done articulating your concerns.

I know it is not the page views that count but the ad revenue generated by our posts - siva

I assume your payment per day was going down, and the total was only showing the most recent days, you can simply change to show the payment period you are wanting to see by changing the dates.

Of course the more you write the more your payments will grow over all but that first page only shows your last week of earnings, not the total.

Ha! I came back here to let you know I'd stopped by. I saw your comments on other Wikinut articles and thought -- I need to get to know this person. Then I clicked on your name and realized I was already following you. Good luck as you continue to write and make connections here on the site.
