hello, I just had a quick and simple curiosity that I wanted clarified.

I "quit" ChaCha a few days ago and my account was terminated as I asked. (I didn't quit on bad terms or anything, it was just getting very slow for me and my hours are picking up at my part-time job) I had a little under $50 currently sitting in there, and my bank account information was filled out for PMM. I understand the .25 or .50 fee, whichever it is, but I've heard mixed responses on how long it takes to get paid out. I've heard it can be anywhere from 30~60 days, but I've also been told that it could be up to a week after pay-out on the 15th. the latter sounds nicer, because I could expect my money by the 22nd.

to anyone else that's quit, how long did it take you to see your money?
and on the flip-side, are you doing anything different to pass the time now?

I had my account deactivated for daring to question a QC judgment. I never before even had a low percentage rating. They sure were quick about it, I emailed them last night and they deactivated me this afternoon. If this is the way ChaCha is going it is a sad, sad thing. And now they have almost $200 of my money that they say will take up to 45 days for me to get.

Can anyone look in the Universe for a direct contact email so that I can question someone about this? I emailed the general customer service address, but I'd like a more direct address.

I can't log onto the universe and the last time a new question was posted on the ChaCha main page was 24 minutes ago. The site's down, huh. It's not just me, amirite?

I just started guiding yesterday. What do you do when someone texts for movie times? The few times I've gotten that request, I just decline it, because I'm not sure if they want ALL the movies, or if I should respond back and ask for what movies they are interested in.

Well, Chacha booted me...

My account gets deactivated in 3 days.  Screw them!  I'll get my money, close out my account with IB of IN...and go to Amazon and do whatever they do over there.  I'm sure it's more creative and rewarding.  Hell, even if they give you credit towards merch, that would be worth it.

Adios Assholes!  LOL XD


this is for Chacha not you LJers, obviously.  ;)

I found a post in the Forums, got my interests back on track, and now I'm getting back-to-back questions again! I can't even begin to explain how amazing it feels to have a steady source of income again.

But does it irk anyone else when you set your status to "away" and you keep getting questions anyway? I don't want to get dinged or in trouble for ignoring questions, but it's not my fault! I think it's stupid that, due to the system, I have to log out if I need to leave my computer.

Eh, I guess I'm just always going to find something to whine about.
But don't even get me started on how long it took to get paid last week when I clicked the PMN button. >:-{

First IB?
I just received my card in the mail today. I was trying to set up my ChaCha to put the funds in there. Is the only way to get that nine digit number by logging in? Every time I try to log in to my account on First IB right now I am getting this error:
Error #1504

An error has occurred. Please contact your financial institution for further information.

An error has occurred. Please contact your financial institution for more information.

or this one
Error #1518

You must first login to access Internet Banking. The page that you are requesting can only be accessed after a successful login. If you have any further issues please go to the website and try again or contact your financial institution for assistance.

Is anybody else having problems, too??

Unhappy Guide Right Here
Let me see if I got this right...

You send me QC emails late the night before the Top Guide list comes out, so even if you bother to look at my feedback, it wouldn't be fixed in time for me to be a Top Guide.  Other weeks, I had one QC and it kept me off the list.  I have no idea if that is actually why I didn't make the list since I don't get the dashboard emails.  Oh, by the way, I sent feedback about that too, but you didn't bother to repond to that.

You refuse to tell us how many questions get reviewed to get our Top Guide percentages.  You don't respond to feedback.  You refuse to tell us what is wrong with the system that causes some people to have back-to-back questions all day while other people get 20 a week.

Yeah, I know, I should just shut up and find another job, right?  Except I think that ChaCha has an ethical responsibility to the people that work for them. 

Jeeze, do I sound a little bitter?

server trouble?
Anyone else having trouble getting into ChaCha? I can get into the Dashboard, but no questions are coming through, and I can't seem to get to the forum or my earnings page. Is the server down?

is it really to hard
To take all that money they are saving from not paying guides who didnt make top guide, and hire some code writers who KNOW what they are doing or someone to actually fix the problems they keep having over and over again.

Id rather them not have weekend promotions if it meant that we could just log on and answer questions, all in a row.

Just curious...
So I'm curious. I'm a new guide, and because of other jobs I have, I'm not logging a ton of questions. But someone on the forums mentioned that they'd logged 1300 questions by like Wednesday or something! How many questions do you generally log a week? When do you answer them and how long do you spend?

hey! i just signed up to be a chacha generalist last week. i took the first test, and passed with a 95. i watched the video that came next... but now i don't know what to do! every time i try to get onto the underground, it never works. i get timed out errors, or it just doesn't load. i wonder if i just have super bad timing and it's down every time i try to use it?

i heard there are a couple more tests? i forget what the video told me i was supossed to do next :/

thank you for your help!

QC reports?
Hey, ChaCha guides. I just started Guiding just over a week ago and still haven't received any feedback from QC. When should I expect some messages from them? I mean, I think I'm doing pretty well *brushes shoulders off* but I definitely know I'm not perfect.

Woot, I got paid the $13 bonus for either Saturday or Sunday today!
I'm really hoping to win one of Sunday's bonus prizes: I could really use the money this week.

How are you guys doing this week? I already have 164 searches out of my 250.
1:11 pm
Is anyone else having problems getting to the forum? I can access the blog, the KB, and answer questions, but I keep getting an error message when I try to access the forum.

Are any of you participating in the contest thing tonight, where you get $13 for free if you complete 130 searches? I just finished mine about half an hour ago--and those 130, added on to the ones from earlier this week, bump me up to over 250 for the week. Yay for getting 20 cents per search again! (I've been inactive for a while, so I got knocked down to 10 per search.)

Also, is the "My Account" link working for any of you? Mine's been really slow and more often than not tonight, it's just taken me to my internet's default error page. :(

Quality Control
Would it be against ChaCha rules anywhere for me to post some questions with the answers I provided? I am frequently cited by QC for presentation and I cannot figure it out. The emails are never specific. I read the link they give you, but I still don't know. I was hoping you guys could help since I don't want to bother QC with it (but I will if I have to). Thanks!

Hi guys I was just approved as a guide and I'm really excited to start taking questions, but every time I have logged in today, I don't get ANY questions. My profile says "fully trained" and like I said I got the email. I've also installed the update. Is the update what's making this happen? I know there are noobs all over the forums complaining about it but I was wondering if any of you guys know what's up?
