Do you read between the lines?

Postby remnant » 20 Nov 2016, 09:25

When most people come across online earning websites, they don't read the policies, terms and conditions which might cause complications later on. You might make a mistake which you regret later when you reach the laboured cashout stage when you are informed that you have not met their stated terms and conditions.

You mean reading terms and conditions? I must admit I only skim over them but luckily it hasn't caused any long term problems for me. It's more likely that I will get bored with a site, realise the earnings are too slow and leave before I run into anything serious.

I don't even skim over them at times to be honest. They are too long and boring and most are the same in all the sites with few twists and turns.

Hopefully, I shall not be a victim of such a fine print as long as collegues like those on FC exists!

That was whay I had started a forum thread asking "Do you ask everything in forums?" I wanted to know whether you read the FAQ of a site properly which saves you from disappointment at a later stage.

"Read between the lines" is an idiomatic expression which means "understand someone's real feelings or intentions from what they say or write". When we are talking about the terms and conditions of a certain online job, we have to know the actual result if we follow them or if we won't. You are right for failing to do it we regret later. And that is actually happening to everyone of us, especially the newbies.

I don't usually 'have the time' to read all that fine print that constitutes Ts&Cs. This is because I can usually read summarized overviews of these Ts&Cs elsewhere.

The longer the T and C the more weasel room they have and all the more reason to go through it- but most of us don't! Try reading the mobile phone contracts some time ( in small font and light grey on tissue paper - in the old days!) :D

True. I sometimes wonder why T&Cs have to be so lengthy and in very fine print. I guess it is because they are usually written by lawyers who are naturally evasive.

honestly, it is hard to read between the lines for every sites

But it is safe to be cautious, try to read the FAQ and the straight forward rules would be easier.

Not to mention, ask the community, they are very helpful.

Reading the lines , you need to use the magnifying glass

It is always advisable to scrutinize a site's FAQs and T&Cs.

The rush to earn a quick buck nevertheless prevents us from performing these due process activities at times. This is when authentic reviews come in handy.
