Is Content Current a scam or simply a dead site?
« on: July 15, 2014, 10:02:41 AM »
A few days ago I tried to apply for a job at Content Current. After registering, I had to fill out a quiz for the assessment of my writing skills. I passed the test and was told that I would have to complete a test article within 48 hours. I have tried several times to access this alleged test article to find out about the topic that I have to write about, but so far I had no success. I even wrote to them, asking them what I was doing wrong but have received no response so far.
Do you know if they still hire people for that site?

I have also tried applying with Content Current few months ago but they kept on asking me to answer the same quiz over and over again. I gave exactly the same answer for all the question but the results given to me were different, it was pretty strange to me.

In the end I just left and never tried to apply again. I'm wondering if this site does exist and is paying.

Content Current is not a scam. Like many content sites on the net, they don't have much work available but instead of telling writers the truth they opt to just mess around with them. I joined content current some time last year and I completed one job. I never heard either from the person who requested the article to be written or from the content current staff.

So much as it's not a scam, you'd be wasting you time if you registered on the site.

Not a scam but definitely a website that is going the way of other content mills. If you do actually get through the application process don't expect too much in the way of work. I'd say Yahoo Contributor Network was the last of the great ones and their site, Yahoo Voices, is shutting down for good on August 1st. Luckily we actually get our writing back and have permission to publish on other sites, even for money.

I worked on Content Current back in 2008 and 2009. Back then, they had tons of work, both forum posting and article writing. It died just after they refurbished their site in 2009, I think. I have checked back to see if they have any work and have not seen anything for YEARS.
It was once a lucrative site. I you see work there, take it. They always paid on time!

My experience with Content Current has been pretty dismal to say the least..Before even i could start writing my account was suspended,and then no reply to emails at all...
At least i did not lose anything..i chalked it up and moved on.A learning experience maybe..:P

I've found that most writing and micro task sites seems to have a very limited amount of work available. They give members the runaround, as they want to hide the fact that they have so little work to provide their writers. I tend to give up on these sites if there's no work available after a while.

I have not heard of Constant Current, and according to these testimonials, I consider it a scam site. If they are dishonest about it, and didn't pay for the work that one user did, then why is it not a scam?

I guess you already have the signs now. Most of us have seen them from other sites, less work less communication from the staff or admin or slow response time. I would not bother waste my time on sites that are too sluggish to reply.

I never heard of this site. It sounds like they were trying to be something like Constant Content or Contently. There are enough legitimate sites around, you don't have to waste your time with illegimate things. It is not worth your time, once they are unresponsive..forget about them, odds are, it won't work out.

I never heard of this site before, but I'm sure glad that I stumbled across this discussion thread! I see red flags all over it, so I now know to stay well clear. I have to say I now have a very dim view of content mills, and will only try one if I get a very good feeling about it. -and there aren't many of those around anymore, sadly.

I have never heard of this website, and frankly, after reading all of the reviews that I've sen tonight, It's a good thing that I haven't. I would have been highly upset had I registered and not been able to do anything. It's frustrating when that happens. I'll be sure to steer clear. It seems like once upon a time it was legit and fruitful, but many of those types of pages come to a dead stop. I fear the day that mine do (fingers crossed it never happens)

I think that sites like these can be annoying and also you don't know if they will work sometimes and you can feel like you are wasting your time in the process, which can be sad as you feel like it is not worth your time and effort. It is a site that is not found on google so the owners may not be taking on more people at the moment and may have shut the site down which can be for some reason. When sites like these are made then the forum owners usually want to make money for themselves and when people make money a lot may want to shut the site down in the process which can be annoying.

It's not a scam, but the owner has his own ways of doing things. He has said he will try it for a year and if no forums sign up he will close it. I think most of the forums are his own listed, but the problem I have seen is that he alienated quite a few people sending emails with threats, and that is never a good way to get people on your side.

I have never tried this site. In fact I did not know about this site until I stumbled upon this thread. After reading the opinions of various people I came to the conclusion that this is not a scam site, however, the site is not a recommended money making site. I don't want to wait forever just to earn couple of dollars.
