Listmyfive used to give accolades for many more accomplishments than it does now. In 2010 Twitter was one of the favorite awards for writers. This award encouraged a person on this writing site to promote their work on Twitter. Along with gaining more views and then making more money, the cute award was one to be proud of achieving. This writer has a Twitter accolade if you look at the profile page. In 2010 this website was booming and the accolade for writing in specific categories was limited, so an accolade for any of the few subjects was quickly acquired on an account. Not to brag, but this author received many accolades in a short time if you want to check the dates on these on the profile page.
Payment was routinely given each month. It was not difficult to acquire the minimum amount to see that deposited into the Paypal account on a regular basis. In 2010 one could actually sit and watch the pennies roll over on the screen as the payment mounted in a writer's account. Sadly the payment does not seem to exist at all due to extreme changes on the site. No matter how often a person writes and contributes their work on this listmyfive.com site, the pay is so low it is discouraging. Since I first began writing here in September 2010, payment is drastically changing for the worse.
The webmaster used to communicate and actually answer almost all of the questions people asked. There were many more active writers and the forum was hopping with activities and buzz. It is now a really almost ghost website and rarely does anyone go to the forum to ask or answer anyone. If one does, the echo can be heard of their own voice and not that of anyone else. The webmaster has all but quit replying to anyone. Many people write me and I seem to get some answers from the Webmaster still. Another sad situation is that the quiet on the site is deafening.
Just once was the event of a contest on listmyfive.com website. The money was considerable with enough to try to get some of the winnings. One was for $300, another for $250, still another for $200 and the last for $150. That was a time when Plagiarism was rampant on this site. I do believe that had a lot to do with the downfall of the once great writing site called listmyfive.com After the contest the site content declined drastically and today in 2015 it is a very quiet place on the Internet. The earnings for the contest was paid to four people and there was never another contest on the site.
At the onset of the creation of the listmyfive, the webmaster asked for suggestions for the categories to have writers choose from for their lists. Maybe this could go in the spot above in communications since the webmaster let the writers choose the most popular areas they wanted to have on the roster to be able to use for their writing. It grew from few to the many that are offered today in July 2015. All writers could voice their desire for specific subjects to write about and it grew very quickly to what it is today. Almost all writers can find an area for their material.
