This actually looks like a really good idea.

Well, our full-length feature articles start at $100 each, and after your fourth published article you get bumped up to the veteran pay of $200. If your article is among the ten most popular that month, you get a $50 bonus.

I think I'll try this out.

If there's one person on this site capable of it, then it's you. But how will I know which one is yours if you make it? What name will it be under (some of those writers use aliases)?

And that is really not enough money for the most popular comedy website on the internet...

Sorry to triple post, but didn't Agent_Orange write an article for Cracked?

Considering the quality of most cracked articles, it can only get better, so they are really missing out if they don't use your suggestion.

Not as great pay as one would think. Only a maximum of $200-$250 per article isn't that much considering that its read by hundreds of thousands of people and that's not enough to being doing it full time. But if its something you really enjoy, go for it.

Actually, I think that they used to be better a few years ago. But they are still worth reading, when they aren't rambling about gay marriage (that article about it was funny, but for all of the wrong reasons).

I would either go by my name or Freedo. I made an account as Freedo but I don't think that has to be the name that appears on the article.

You'll basically focus the stuff you do here into articles and get payed for it. If all else fails, you can still sell penis pumps online. [http://www.bath-mate.com...]

Well cracked is part of Demand Media. I suppose there's no way to see how profitable Cracked is compared to its other projects.

Holy sh!t. Look at 2011's Q2-Q4. http://www.google.com...

DM operated at a loss in 2011, but they've recovered well and have a strong financial momentum. I couldn't find profit from Cracked, but I founded 2012 Q3 earnings report. http://ir.demandmedia.com...

I already saw that information. You can't find the profits from cracked, because they only report information from their corporation, not its sub-departments.

I have. I have ghost-written or co-written about 50 different articles. Mostly Cracked weekly round-up. It's good, quick money. Although I don't think I can be funny on a consistent basis like the Columnist

Ghost-written? O.o

Which ones?
