FIRST!!!!!111!!!

Talk about Demand Studios and Demand Media. How about that health insurance?!!

FIRST!!!!!111!!!

Postby CE_ClueBat » Wed Oct 05, 2011 6:13 pm

POPCORN TIME!!!

Let the zombie whinging fun begin...

Dear Writers and Editors,

We realize there has been recent concern around assignment availability. We know many of you rely on Demand Media Studios as a regular income source and as a way to grow your careers. For those reasons and others, we want to be as transparent as we can about the future.

In just a few years, we've worked together to grow the eHow.com library to an astounding 3 million articles. While eHow has been the main publisher of content produced by DMS writers, we've also developed other writing outlets on our own properties like typeF.com and LIVESTRONG.COM as well as through partnerships like Chron.com and USAToday. With our eHow.com library already so comprehensive, we saw the opportunity to shift our focus to more targeted categories and other forms of content such as slide shows, video series and feature articles. Good examples of these new formats can be found on eHow and LIVESTRONG.COM.

None of this would have been possible without having spent so many years working with you, our writers and editors, to build our comprehensive library.

Looking ahead, as we continue to publish articles for eHow and our other sites, we want to be sure we are building on what already exists, not replicating it. This is not to say we will stop assigning standard titles in How to and Topic View format for eHow.com. But it does mean that we will have fewer eHow.com assignments for the foreseeable future.

However, we will continue to add more publishers and sections as we've done over the years, and ultimately the work and opportunities will grow for our best writers and editors. We are also excited to completely execute on our vision of having the most qualified writers and editors working on titles within their areas of expertise.

In order for this to happen, we need to make sure of a few things:
That only executable, valid and unique titles make it to your Work Desk.
That every article is written and copy edited by a qualified professional with background, knowledge or experience in the topic.
That every article has the appropriate format and word count for the topic to be comprehensively covered.
We will also be putting additional focus on helping you grow within your fields. This means offering ways for you to gain exposure on our sites and new tools for you to promote yourself and your work. We will send additional updates and information on assignments going forward. We will also set up some new avenues for you to ask questions and offer feedback. For the time being, if you have any additional questions, please use this forum thread.

Best Regards,
Demand Media Studios Team

Translated for you:

Even we can think of only so many ways to word "How to shove a vibrator up your ass" and Google isn't ranking all 100 of the titles we already have on that subject very well. Therefore, in our latest desperate move, because we don't really know what we are doing, we're primarily going to rely on old articles on eHow.

Thanks for all your hard work. As a bonus we are looking at ways for you to promote eHow for us for free. We know that you will appreciate these opportunities.

Wow, can any other entity use so much fluff to say so little? Thanks for that pile of meaninglessness, demand, it's the least you could have done after the 25,784 questions about titles. No, really, the least.

I don't even get what the fuck all that shit means. Are they going to comb through our profiles and invite us to special niches like they did with local.com and whitefence? Are they going to WEP every writer with a score lower than 4.5? Seriously, this update was so vague I know they're only doing it to shut writers up. The problem is, it's just going to become another clusterfuck like the "Title Update" thread.

You can't always get what you want. But if you try sometime, you just might find, you get what you need.

I like the part about them offering us tools to promote our work at DMS. The fuck? Why would I want to promote shit I have no control over and get paid nothing to promote it? Fuck that shit.

We need an eHow porn section. Gilligan and See Comments will spend all their time there and save the rest of us a lot of pain.
