A while ago, I visited earn.cash.com and I was the only human. @Shavkat told me he refrained from doing activities there for the site and stopped paying members. There are many members there. I am hoping they would wake up from the reality that site is not worth spending time and effort.

I hope they will still pay my balance on the 5th day of this month.

How much is your due? I wasn't paid $3 and my referral also didn't get paid and I don't have any nope hope to get paid and I regret the fact that I wasted my time on this website and even wasted time of my referrals on scam website.

I have been on one non-paying site about 10 years now and I've been enjoying it reading and posting on it without getting paid some is because you just enjoy posting on such a site.

The community is what brings people together. Generally older forums and those that are very niche or location based can afford not to pay their users because people stay there just to interact with others.

At first having forum used to be free but the idea of paying members is to bring members to the forum and post. So a free forum is the best because they will have all the income to themselves from showing ads and many more

The owners of these websites usually get something from running the forums even if they don't pay members. They can gain recognition as an expert in their field, build a network of people who can help them in their own endeavors, and even get referrals for their services or products. They may also gain valuable insights from the conversations going on in the forums. Finally, some owners of these websites may be focused on building an active community of users, which can generate traffic to their website or blog.

One thing i have come to understand about humans is that they would definitely hang around as long as they have something to benefit form you. I guess these persons are getting one thing or the other form the forum.

people join sites for different reasons it is not always about money. If you want to be entertained or get information from a forum you can join anyone you like to achieve that

Some people create forums in order to earn revenue just like people do with blogs (I am that person), however, some people create forums just as a hobby and they find pleasure in maintaining an active community.

I think one of the main reasons is people have made some virtual friends in the community. They can probably learn new things and share business insights with fellow members.

There are so many forums that are not paid to post but they have huge members because members are gaining from their content.

Though some people join forums to gather more knowledge and work with people of like minds so they don't want to even leave the site but most people join because of the earnings, so some new people on the sites may not know that the site is no longer paying

Thanks for your reply and I think if they have enough members they can plan to pay too after earning revenue from it

I think some people have interest in different websites and maybe they like the community or learning something from it and this is helping them to stay on a non paying website

I always wonder why this happens too but I just had to convince myself that those platforms promised to pay them and the people have been working on them for a very long time
That's what I feel
