Does Redgage Ever Work?

For years I've been trying to use Redgage - a site where you can upload your content, share it, get views and get paid for those views. e.g. if you've written a post here, you can share a link there. But I've always struggled to get it to work.

I'm still struggling on. A few weeks ago I couldn't do anything with the Collections, they seemed to have disappeared and weren't available for use. The other day I tried to upload a link and it simply never happened.

I've just been to give it another go and tried to upload a link and got an error message on Redgage that simply said: "

"error":"The requested resource is not available at this time."}"

It's very annoying. I've seen some cash in the bank from views, currently that says $7.80, but I've never got to a point where I can just log on and expect to achieve what I set out to do!

It can't just be me. I know not many people use Redgage, or speak of it - but I know some do as I can see profiles/names that match other writers I rub shoulders with on this site and other writing sites.

I just want sites to do what they say ... especially as I've been battling it out on Redgage for 3-4 years now.

I have not even heard of it before but if it is that hard to use I would have done stopped anyways. Hope you can get it figured out

I've heard of Redgage though have never joined. Have you tried contacting their support for help with the issue you're experiencing? Hope you get this sorted out. Good luck.

I gave up after a week when I joined many years ago...

Redgage has always been hard to use because it's had lots of glitches. I was active there until they rolled out a redesign of the site. Because it took a very long time for them to re-post previous earnings from before the redesign, I stayed away. I've gone back occasionally, but find little activity. Used to be I could post an article, or even just a photo, and see it earn a little each day. No more. As far as I can see, the site is pretty much dead.

It has been a long while since I've heard anything positive about redgage. But I have no personal experience.

I hadn't heard of this one, but judging by what you've said, I would have walked away. I went to have a look at what others were saying and found a long, yet informative rant about it. I'd cut my losses if it were me. Best wishes.

I have not learnt of Redgage before .I don't think every site does what they have said .Most of them only pay lip service to it .

I don't contact support, I don't use it enough and figure there must be others who are motivated to call them

Now that you mention it, I might have a Redgage account which I'd forgotten about.

I do not know what happens to Redgage too. It seems that the admin is not always around.

I've heard of it before, but I don't think I ever joined and I know I never checked into it further if I did. Have you tried using different browsers? Sometimes certain ones will work better for certain sites than others. I don't know why it would continue to have those issues for that long.
