poop. Me too.

I called them... This error will go away when the check is issued.
By the way, the dollar amount on that screen is NOT the audited amount. There could be deductions. I was reallly surprised and disappointed to hear that.
Why does so much darkness surround these programs?

Ok, thanks for the info.
Actually I have really good feelings about YPN, but you know . . .Everything you hear from people about adsense - one can get worried, pretty easily.
| 12:29 am on Dec 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Yep, same thing happened last month, nothing to worry about.
| 12:32 am on Dec 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
For your people who were paid last month, how long did it take from the check pending to the time you reiceved your check?
| 12:47 am on Dec 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
I received mine 5 days after the check state error.
| 1:29 am on Dec 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
why wouldn't these earnings be audited if they gave me additional dollar
| 1:57 am on Dec 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
i got my check like 4 days later.
| 2:22 am on Dec 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
"why wouldn't these earnings be audited if they gave me additional dollar"
Right. I got another dollar too. He said the error will go away and you'll see the final dollar amount of the check. I said... 'What do you mean final dollar amount'? Isn't that the figure to the right on the screen? He says.. No, that figure can be adjusted further. I hung up the phone and then told him what I thought of that.

I guess he didn't hear you then. :)

If any poor soul in Yahoo! customer service wants to send me a hat, I'll call and always be nice. :)
You have my address. And my social security number. And my moms name. And detailed analysis of all my publishing activity.

Mines saying this to. You would think they would use better verbeage to let us know what is going on.
| 3:52 am on Dec 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
I am not too worried, if there were invalid clicks, so be it, I dont deserve the money anyway.
Just from what I have heard and experienced so far with YPN I don't think that we have too much to worry about!
Oh well, I guess we will just see what happens when the checks come eh? No use in really worrying about it till then...

I agree James. I'm was a bit shocked when I saw it, but as long as it's not just me, at this point I'm basically trusting Y!.
I actually came out of the customer support and customer experience management/crm industry. I was probably one of the first Americans to follow the BPO trend into India, and I run websites that often times, are catered to Americans (and UK folks) who are living overseas. That's where the majority of my traffic comes.
And relative to Adsense, I am so astoundingly pleased with YPN customer service and support (and I'm speaking as someone who has run 1,000+ seat contact centers before I bugged out and became a teacher) that unless they do something really ridiculous, I don't even mind the fact that I can't get the great epc on my foreign clicks.
I've got quite a few sites here and there that are doing pretty well, with YPN, Adsense, Chitika, etc. but on the newer sites that I'm making (within the last 2 months) I'm using YPN exlusively.
I'll probably axe Adsense altogether come new year. Maybe I'll keep it on one page, just to keep the account active. I'll probably keep Chitika too, just because of my theory that it prevents YPN ad blindness.
But I'll say this - For me, YPN has been the most impressive revenue generating strategy that I've ever tried, as a small-medium publisher. I can't get someone on the phone anywhere else.
Let's get some better targetting, and direct deposit, and I'll be Yahoo's version of Jared from Subway. :)

Direct Deposit is supposed to be here early next year... so the rep told me on the phone.
I always get a bit nervous when they call me, I guess its from all my terrible experiences with Adsense... The customer service reps think we're all paranoid people but seriously Google screwed me so many times.
| 1:38 pm on Dec 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
The only reason I'm upset about further changes is that on the 5th when I saw what I thought were the final numbers - I went out and spent it :)

Checks went in the mail on a day that will stand in infamy.
| 8:51 pm on Dec 8, 2005 (gmt 0)|
I dont understand your post?

|Direct Deposit is supposed to be here early next year... so the rep told me on the phone. |
The day this happens IŽll move half my websites to YPN! Right now is only one out of 10.

I didn't see any check error yet. Is anyone seeing the magic "check error" this month?
Or did they improve their system because mine still says Check pending.
| 5:42 pm on Jan 9, 2006 (gmt 0)|
nope still check pending
| 11:00 pm on Jan 9, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Check is still pending...
| 3:10 pm on Jan 11, 2006 (gmt 0)|
my check pending just went to check error, so i should recieve my november check in about 4-5 days, i am in Houston Texas.
| 3:45 pm on Jan 11, 2006 (gmt 0)|
| 3:49 pm on Jan 11, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Yep, same here. Check error
| 8:46 pm on Jan 11, 2006 (gmt 0)|
check error ....
| 12:16 am on Jan 12, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Check error confirmed.
I wonder how many days it'll take to recieve the check?
| 4:47 pm on Jan 13, 2006 (gmt 0)|
I wonder the same. how long will it take to receive the check now and has this hapen to other people before?
| 4:54 pm on Jan 13, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Yes, it happens every month after they send the checks out.
When you see Error State, they have sent them, so its just up to USPS when you get it... estimate they are in california, to however long it takes for 1st class mail to get to your part of the country.
I live in MN, usually takes between 3-5 days from cali.
