Has anyone applied for this job??? If so, did you get a response from Sploofus? I applied Sunday night. When I turned it in, the message said someone would get back to me within 1 business day. I still haven't heard anything, and I can't figure out a way to contact them.

I did it about 6 months ago..and have gotten nothing after the initial email.

Where is the ad?? Never saw it, or I'd have my application in triplicate...

I applied over a year ago & haven't heard back...

I guess Sploofus forgot about it.

Or, it is like those Volkswagon ads that says "Drivers Wanted." IN that case, you do have to buy the car...

I also applied and never heard back. Now that I know all of you are also out there, I won't take this personally any more.

OK...I'm not holding my breath any more. It WOULD have been something fun to do in retirement, though!

I also applied, but didn't get so much as an acknowledgement. I had assumed I just wasn't what they were looking for but, if so many others did too, either that's not the case or the percentage of people they've followed up is VERY small compared to the number who applied!

Ah, well - as you say, it would have been nice, but ...!

I am quickly losing faith in Sploofus's ability to properly respond to and serve their user base.

Sad. It is a nice system.

I sincerely apologize for the lack of communication here. That link was posted on the site the first week that Sploofus was launched in 2004. The results of the form submissions are put into a database, and I did not remember the 1 day response, a system which was never built.

For all that have filled out the form, I do have your information.

If, in the future, Sploofus grows into a position where it can pay part-time writers I will be using this database extensively. Currently, Sploofus is just myself and 18 incredibly talented VOLUNTEER writers/editors. Sploofus doesn't turn a profit for it is a part time hobby even for myself, and the revenue generated by membership upgrades and banner advertisements pay for the increasing server, network, hardware, software licensing and bandwidth costs. I am a consulting software architect and web development contractor. As soon as I am able to get into a financial position where I can break away from that and turn my tue passion (Sploofus) into a full time business I can assure you that it will be a glorious day!

Thank you for your understanding - and I apologize once again for not getting back with those that submitted the "Trivia writers wanted" form.

Best regards,
Justin (Mr. Sploofus)

The link to the form has now been removed. I hope to be able to respond to all of you at some time in the near future.
