Revver up, Revver down

I was just getting into Revver.com when suddenly the site goes down completely. Power outage, perhaps? Or maybe it's somehow related to the $12.7 million it just secured from Comcast and Turner Broadcasting.

UPDATE: They're back up. And honestly? I'm willing to give them a break as they scale up, because right now it's the best vlog revenue site going.

Meanwhile, YouTube overtakes MySpace.

That happened to me three times in two days when I used them to host a video and their customer service was so slow to respond to my complaints. When I did hear back I was told their system "wasn't ever down" in the first place.

I'm not using them anymore that's for sure.

I racked up a few bucks using them over the last year and feel what the hey...

good exposure and revenue also!

gosh, i need to figure out a way to bring in more money. i mean, besides getting a better job...

oh dear... yeah, i was wondering how someone like Ze Frank or you (Amanda) would deal with this outage(s). Bad customer service on top of outages usually = dealbreaker.

I'm currently raking in $0.38 from Revver. :-) Perhaps Lulu will fare better.

Any thoughts on Google video?
If looks like it could have huge potential, more so if they allowed individuals a share of the revenue.
Currently only those posting more than 1,000 hours have the rights to charge per download or earn profit shares.

I've never liked Google video. They botched it from the start,
made it ugy and hard to upload video. They've gotten better,
but if they're not letting everyone make $$ on their content
that shows they don't understand the long tail and are not being smart.
All they have to do is not pay out until a person earns $100 or whatever
like AdSense.

Yeah, huge potential though.

Every site experiences some down time here and there. It's part of the trials of beta. We appreciate your understanding as we scale up to handle our rapidly-growing user base and forge ahead toward the launch of our 1.0. Hope you'll keep testing us out in the meantime.
