In the first article I mentioned a number of publishing sites; among them Triond, Bukisa, Hubpags, and Knoji, which had been Factoidz.
Factoidz had to change its name since it had such a bad reputation and long history of ripping off its writers. I wondered if Knoji was different, if Factoidz had learned its lesson and wanted to 'go clean'.
The basic policies of Knoji seem to be that one's first articles are unpaid for and moderated. If a writer posts a number of articles in a row, which are acceptable, he will be advanced to paid writer. So the first published articles seem to be free.
The topics on which one can write have different values. Some are Low and some are Medium and some are High. That is all the information one gets. It isn't like Triond which specifies how many cents per how many hits.
When a writer is accepted each time an article is published he receives a 'bonus' . The first ten articles, or so, receive something like 80c at publication. After the first month the contributor, having written 10 articles, will have $8.00 or so sent to their Paypal account. These 'bonuses' are a one shot payment, and represent the 'purchase' of the article by Knoji.
The next 10 articles are paid at the rate of 40c Bonus; so that by month two one will receive $4.00 in their Paypal account.
In a larger picture, Knoji pays as badly as Wikinut. I had to remove Wikinut from the first article due to its very low pay and difficulty in removing articles. It is unknown whether or not Wikinut captures an article, Knoji does not allow you to remove an article having bought it for 41c. (This is covered in Knoji's Terms of Service so that one is fully advised as to who owns the item published on Knoji-- Knoji).
