"Hello Dear Contributors,
All payment requests from December 19th to January 15th will be processed this coming Friday, January 15th, 2010. Going forward after this Friday, we are planning to process all payment requests every Friday. As this is a new schedule and system we're using, we appreciate your patience and understanding. Our accounting team is working diligently to ensure that this goes smoothly and everyone is paid on time.
Thank you all.
Your friendly support admin - tiggered"
I like the idea of every Friday payouts. Much more reliable than just "whenever" as it has been lately.
The only question I have is will there be a one week delay like there is at Istock or will we be paid the same week we make the request...?
