The earnings are divided into two main categories, Accumulated and Received. Accumulated earnings also detail any payments received from that category during the month. Earnings are then further broken down into the areas from which the earnings were made. Earnings for the previous month follow the current month’s revenue in brackets.
For a full breakdown of article related progress and earnings, see the complete article on InfoBarrel.
Most of the work done during the month was related to articles, and any associated affiliate programmes, rather than other sources.
RedGage earnings are, as has been the standard for some time, still missing.
Fizzy actually had some earnings in May, for the first time since January, although the figures are definitely incomplete and all the prior months stats are still missing.
Amazon affiliate sales declined again, and were the lowest for well over a year.
RPGNow income from role playing game supplements continued upwards slightly, and the current release rate of one a week has been maintained.
