Yep. Still here.

How to Go Down With the Ship

How to Go Down With the Ship

Hey DSSers,

Sorry for the delay.

Yep. We’re still here and about, although things are more quiet than they’ve been in years.

Notice that there are finally some new titles floating about. How is everyone finding things there?

Demand stock, however, continues to hover in the sub $5/share price. Ouch.

 

 

The Ship is Just About Under

How to Go Down With the Ship

Hey guys,

Not really much going on at the Demand front.

The queues look like they’re mostly empty. The few writers with permissions still at the studio keep  correcting old articles and everyone else sits around the forums bitching.

Here’s a bit of news straight from Demand staff:

I wish I had more solid answers for everyone when it comes to the renovation, particularly when assignments/sections will be “ready.” But alas, I am caught by surprise at times when things are announced :)

So – even Demand staff doesn’t know what’s going on. Sad.

In other news, Demand stock hit an all time low of $3.62. That’s quite a bit down from where the stock IPO’d at $17 and later on rose up to $25. That, of course, is where Mr. Special Grilled Cheese and everyone else dumped their stock.

How does everyone feel about Demand now?

 

Demanding to be Saved

How to Go Down With the Ship

Howdy everyone!

Sorry been so quiet. Decided to take this time off to take some holidays. Figured now would be a good time since  the Demand queue is totally dried up during the eHow “renovation.”

Got this post in the mail from DSSer N. He raises some good points, so I’d thought I’d share it with everyone.

Got an idea for a story? A juicy tidbit?

Be sure to drop us a line!

Demand Studios Closing?

Just had a couple of different people send this in. As with most of our anonymous tips, we’re taking it worth a grain of salt.

This instagram pic was linked to from the DMS forums somewhere. Go to the link and hover over the image and you get this message:

23 hours ago – Oh, Snap. The end of the month is fast approaching! Make sure to upload any In Production projects asap, as the Studio will begin its closure for site renovation starting in April.

Too Good to Pass Up

So sad and yet so true.

South of the Border

How to Go Down With the Ship

This email appeared in the mailbag from one of our amigos/amigas south of the border, so I thought I’d pass it along.

Also feel free to rant over in the forums if it helps you feel any better.

I have been working for Demand Studios for about 8 months now. I reside in Mexico and came across the site while looking for translation Jobs online.

Of course, the site doesn’t feature as many options for people liveing outside of the states but I figures I’d give it a try. I got hired and started working on a [...]
