It is the trend now to earn online.Any one with a little bit of computer knowledge and being able to use the internet tries to earn through the net. The opportunities are plenty .Most of us are members of various online sites which give us an opportunity to earn, but there are very few sites which can be termed as perfect in every respect..
There are some sites which are extremely professional like most of the article writing sites like Triond, Bukisa, Factoidz which have their set rules and regulations . There are also others which are not so professional , playing truant when they have to pay the members citing every reason possible not to do so !
Here I make a list of a few prominent features that distinguish a good professionally run discussion site from other incompetent and unprofessional sites !
1, First and foremost , A good discussion or Article writing site is one ,where the Admin is strict and deals in a fair and just manner with all the members without showing any favoritism and twisting the rules and regulations for the benefit of a few favored members!
2, A good discussion or article writing site is one which pays within a time frame what is due to the members without playing on their emotions and paying as and when the Admin feels like or not at all to some of the members ! We are all here for earning and the terms of payment becomes an important factor.
3, A good discussion or article writing site will have clear cut rules and regulations which is applicable to all its members !
4, A good discussion or article writing site is one where certain favored members are not allowed to start discussions or write articles attacking and verbally abusing other members!
5, Finally what matters is not what the site promises to pay its members on its FAQs but what is actually given to its members when they reach their payout amount !
I would like to add that what is most important is the atmosphere created by the admin team which makes its members happy and secure to interact and post , which in turn reflects in the quality of their posts and the general quality of the site .
I have had some unpleasant experience with certain online sites where I lost quite a bit of my hard earned money because of the unprofessional attitude of the administrator which prompted me to write this article . In my opinion it is better to discontinue posting on a site where one feels disturbed and insecure !
